Installation of Water Line

Connecting the Inlet Hose

The dryer must be connected to the cold water faucet using the new inlet hoses (not supplied). Do not use old hoses.

NOTE: Replace inlet hoses after 5 years of use to reduce the risk of hose failure. Record hose installation or replacement dates on the hoses for future reference. Periodically inspect and replace hoses if bulges, kinks, cuts, wear, or leaks are found.

  1. Turn cold water faucet off and remove washer inlet hose. Remove old rubber washer from inlet hose and replace with new rubber washer.
