INSTRUCTIONS
CONNECTING
THE WATER
LINES
,
LG recommends
the use of LG hoses. Any leak-
ing, property
damage,
or damage to the washing
machine
caused by an improper
installation
or by
the use of Non-LG hoses is not covered
under the
terms
of the LG warranty
and is the sole responsi-
bility of the customer
and/or an installer.
, Water
supply
pressure
must
be between
14.5 psi
and 116 psi (100N800 kPa). If the water supply pressure
is more than 116 psi, a pressure
reducing valve must
be installed.
,
Periodically
check
the
hose for cracks,
leaks,
and
wear, and replace the hose if necessary.
,
Make
sure that the water
lines are not stretched,
pinched,
crushed, or kinked.
, The washer
should
never be installed
or stored
in a
location subject to freezing temperatures.
Damage
to
the water lines and internal mechanisms
of the washer
can resuk. If the washer was exposed to freezing tem-
peratures prior to insta%tion,
allow it to stand at room
temperature
for several hours before use and check for
leaks prior to operation.

2. Connect
the water
supply
hoses to the HOT and
COLD
water faucets
tightly
by hand and then tight-
en another
2/3 turn with
pliers.
zhWARNING
--
• Do not overtighten.
Damage
to the coupling
[
can result.
3. Always
run a gallon or two
of water
through
each
inlet hose
to flush
dirt, scale and other
debris
out
of the water
lines. Doing so will help prevent future
problems
with
clogged
filter screens,
and will also
allow
you
to verify
which
hose is hot and which
is cold.
ztWARNING
_
• Do not overtighten
the hoses.
Overtightening
can damage
the valves resulting
in leaking
and
property
damage.
4. Attach
the hot water
line to the hot water
inlet on
the back of the washer.
Attach
the cold water
line
to the cold water
inlet on the back of the washer.
Tighten
the fittings
securely.
Turn
ON both
fau-
cets all the way and check
for leaks at both ends
of the hoses.
NOTE:
Be careful
not to cross-thread
the
hose fit-
tings.
This will damage
the valve and could
result
in
property
damage
from leaks.
