Recommended clearance measurements to install my Front-Load Washer (WF45K6500AV)?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Dimensions and clearances


The following guidelines will help you determine if your wahser fits in the space you have available. We recommend at least 25 mm (1 inch) of clearance on all sides, 150 mm (5.9 inches) of clearance at the back, 50 mm (2 inch) of clearance at the front and 432 mm (or 17 inches) at the top. Remember that when it comes to clearance around the washer, more clearance is better than less.
