Installing the Washing Machine
Selecting a location
Before you install the washing machine, select a location with the following characteristics:
•A hard, level surface (if the surface is uneven, see "Adjusting the leveling feet," below)
•Away from direct sunlight.
•Room temperature that will not fall below 0 ˚C
•Away from sources of heat such as coal or gas
Make sure that the washing machine does not stand on its power cord.
Ventilation openings must not be obstructed by carpeting when the washing machine is installed on a carpeted floor.
Adjusting the leveling feet
If the floor is uneven, adjust the feet (do not insert pieces of wood or any other objects under the feet):
1.Loosen the leg bolt by turning it with your hand until it is at the desired height.
2.Tighten the locking nut by turning it with the supplied wrench.
Place the washer on a sturdy, flat surface.
If the washer is placed on an uneven or weak surface, noise or vibration occurs. (Only a l degrees angle is allowed.)
Removing the shipping bolts

1.Loosen all bolts with the supplied wrench before removing them.
2.Take each bolt head and pull it through the wide part of the hole. Repeat for each bolt.
3.Fill the holes with the supplied plastic covers.
4.Keep the shipping bolts for future use.
