Installation Requirements

Location

Your washer must be installed on firm, level flooring to minimize vibration during spin cycles. Concrete flooring is best, but wood base is sufficient providing the floor support meets FHA standards.

Your washer must not be installed on any textured floor coverings (eg carpet, rugs) to ensure the opening at the bottom of the machine is not obstructed.

Your washer must also be installed where it is not exposed to the weather.

Plumbing

Water Temperature

Your cold water should not exceed 95 ̊F (35 ̊C) and your hot water should not exceed 149 ̊F (65 ̊C). Temperatures above this may damage your washer.

Shut Off Valves

Both hot and cold shut-off valves (faucets) should be available in the laundry area.

Drain

Water may be drained into a standpipe or tub / sink. The standpipe must be 1 1⁄2” (38 mm) minimum interior diameter and must be open to the atmosphere.

Electrical

This appliance must be supplied with 110V – 120V, 60Hz electrical supply and connected to an individual, properly grounded branch circuit, protected by a 15 or 20 amp circuit breaker or time delay fuse.
