Washer Location

Consider the following before installing your washer.


Never install your washer on a platform or weakly supported structure.

For best performance, install your washer on a solidly constructed floor. Wood floors may need to be reinforced to minimize vibration and/or unbalanced load situations. Carpeting and soft tile surfaces are contributing factors in vibration and/or tendency for your washer to move slightly during the spin cycle.

Temperature Considerations

Do not install your washer in areas where water may freeze, since your washer will always retains some water in its water valve, pump, and hose areas. Freezing can cause damage to belts, the pump, hoses and other components. Operating temperature should be above 60°F/16°C.

Alcove or Closet Installation

If the washer and dryer are installed together, the closet front must have at least 72 in² or 465 cm² of an unobstructed air opening. Your washer alone does not require a specific air opening.


  • Sides: 1 in / 25 mm
  • Rear: 2.375 in / 60 mm
  • Top: 17 in / 432 mm
  • Closet Front: 2 in / 51 mm
