Installing the Front Load Washer

Select a Location

Location requirements:

  • A solid, level surface without carpeting or flooring that may obstruct ventilation

  • No direct sunlight

  • Adequate room for ventilation and wiring

  • Ambient temperature always higher than the freezing point (32˚F/0˚C)

  • Away from heat sources

Remove the Shipping Bolts

Packaging materials can be dangerous to children. Dispose all packaging material (plastic bags, polystyrene, etc.) out of children’s reach.

Unpack the product package and remove all shipping bolts.

  1. Loosen all shipping bolts on the rear of the machine using the spanner.

    An adjustable wrench or 10 mm open-end wrench is required for removing the shipping bolts.

  2. Fill the holes with the supplied plastic bolt caps. Keep the shipping bolts for future use.

Adjust the Leveling Feet

  1. Gently slide the washer into position. Excessive force may damage the leveling feet.

  2. Level the washer by manually adjusting the leveling feet.

  3. When leveling is complete, tighten the nuts using the spanner.

    An adjustable wrench or 17 mm open-end wrench is required to loosen or tighten the leveling feet.

Connect the Water Hose

If there is a water leak, stop using the washer and contact a local Samsung service center. A water leak may cause electric shock.

  • Make sure you use a new water hose, and there are rubber gaskets (B) inside the couplings (A) at either end of the water hose. A water hose without the gasket may leak.

  • Do not stretch the water hose by force. If the hose is too short, replace the hose with a longer, high-pressure hose.

  • To prevent leaks, make sure both water hoses are not bent or kinked.

To connect the water hoses to the faucets:

  1. Connect one end of each water hose to the Hot (B) or Cold (A) tap.

  2. Turn the fittings by hand until they are tight, and then tighten them by just an additional two-thirds of a turn with a spanner. Do not overtighten the fittings. You can damage them.

  3. When done, pull the water hoses up and down to check if they are properly connected.

  4. Put the other ends of the hoses into a bucket and open the taps for 10-15 seconds to remove impurities. When done, close the taps.

  5. Connect the other ends of the water hoses to the corresponding inlets on the rear of the machine as specified. Make sure the hot water hose is connected to the hot inlet, and the cold water hose to the cold inlet.

  6. Repeat step 2 above on the other fittings. Make sure both water hoses are connected properly. See the ‘4C’ information code for troubleshooting.   

       

  7. Open both faucets, and check if there is a leak.

If you do not want to use the hot water hose, insert the inlet cap into the hot water inlet. In this case, you must select Tap Cold for the water temperature. All other water indicators turn off.

To prevent water hoses from being bent or kinked, make sure there is at least a 6 inch (150 mm) space between the washer and the rear wall.

Position the Drain Hose

The drain hose can be positioned in three ways:

  • Over the edge of a wash basin: The drain hose must be placed at a height of between 24 in. (60 cm) and 35 in. (90 cm) from the floor. To keep the spout of the drain hose bent, use the supplied plastic hose guide (A). Secure the guide to the wall using a hook to ensure stable drainage.

  • ln a standpipe or laundry tub: The laundry tub (B) or standpipe (C) must be no shorter than 18 in. (46 cm) and no higher or longer than 96 inches (245 cm). Make sure the drain hose and the standpipe are not airtight.

    D: Hose retainer / E: Tie straps

    Connect the hose guide (A) within 6 in. (15 cm) of the end of the drain hose. If the drain hose is extended beyond the end of the hose guide, mold or microorganisms could spread inside the washer. The drain hose can be installed up to 96 in. (245 cm) high, but the draining capability can be reduced at the maximum height. Water remaining in the drain system may cause an odor.

    If the drain hose is installed less than 18 in. (46 cm) high, water can be drained during the process due to a siphon phenomenon. If this happens, a ‘4C’ information code appears on the display.

  • Wall standpipe drain system: The drain hose must be placed into a wall standpipe drain system. To keep the end of the drain hose bent, use the supplied hose guide (A). Secure the guide to the wall using a hook to ensure stable drainage.

Power On

Plug the power cord into an AC 120 V / 60 Hz approved electrical outlet protected by a fuse or circuit breaker. Then, press Power to turn on the washer.
