Installing the Washer

Selecting a Location

Before you install the washer, make sure the location:

  • Is away from direct sunlight.

  • Has adequate ventilation.

  • Is not exposed to freezing temperatures (temperatures under 32 °F or 0 °C).

  • Has enough space so that the washer doesn’t rest on its power cord.

Connecting the Water Supply Hose

• Before installing the water supply hoses, make sure there are rubber gaskets (B) inside the couplings (A) at both ends of each new water hose. Installing the water supply hoses without rubber gaskets can cause water leakage.
• When you initially install the washer, be sure to use new hoses. Failing to do so may result in a water leakage or overflow and may damage your property.
• Do not connect multiple water supply hoses together to increase the length of the supply hose. Hoses connected this way can leak and the leakage can cause electrical shock. If a hose is too short, replace the hose with a longer, high pressure hose.

To connect the water hoses to the faucets:

  1. Connect the ends of the water supply hoses to the hot and cold faucets.

  2. Tighten the fittings by hand until they are snug, and then tighten them an additional two-thirds of a turn with a wrench.

    When you fasten the fittings, do not fasten them too tightly or apply tape or sealant to the faucets or water supply intakes. This can damage the fittings.

    After you have connected the water supply hoses to the faucets, ensure that they are connected correctly by pulling the water supply hoses downwards.

  3.  Place the unconnected ends of the hoses into a bucket and open the faucets connected to the two water supply hoses for 10 or 15 seconds to remove any foreign substances from the hoses. Close the faucets before continuing.

  4. Connect the ends of the water supply hoses to the water supply intake connections at the back of the washer.

    The water supply hose connected to the hot faucet must be connected to the hot water supply intake and the water hose connected to the cold faucet must be connected to the cold water supply intake.

  5. Tighten the fittings by hand until they are snug, and then tighten them an additional two-thirds of a turn with a wrench.

    • To ensure the correct water usage, connect both the hot and cold water faucets. If either or both are not connected, an 4C (no fill) code can be displayed.
    • If you do not want to use the hot water supply hose, insert the water intake cap into the hot water supply intake hole. In this case, you must select the Tap Cold for the water temperature. If you select the Tap Cold , all the lamps for the water temperature options are turned off.

    Confirm that the water supply hoses are not twisted or bent. If the hoses are twisted or bent, the hoses can leak and cause electric shock due to the water leakage.

  6. Turn on the hot and cold water supplies and check all the water supply intake connections and the faucets for water leaks.

Connecting the Drain Hose

The drain hose can be positioned in three ways:

  1. 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.

  2. In a standpipe or laundry tub: The laundry tub (B) or standpipe (C) must be no shorter than 18 inches (47cm) and no higher or longer than 96 inches (245 cm).

  3. • Make sure that the connection between the drain hose and the standpipe is not airtight.
    • Connect the hose guide (A) within 4 in (10 cm)* from the end of the drain hose. If the drain hose is extended more than 4 in (10 cm) beyond the end of the hose guide, mold or microorganisms could spread to the inside of the washer.
    • The drain hose can be installed to a 96 in (245 cm) maximum, but the draining capability can be reduced at this height. It can cause the washer to have an odor because of remaining water in the drain system
    • If the drain hose is installed below 39 in (99 cm), water can be drained in cycles due to a siphon phenomenon. It causes the washer to display 4C .

Adjust the Leveling Feet

See if the washer is level by checking the position of the tub:

  1. Slide the washer into position.

  2. Open the lid of the washer, and pour the water into the tub to just below the pulsator level.

    Samsung Open the Lid
  3. If the washer is level, the pulsator (A)  is positioned at the center of the water as shown in the figure. If not, level your washer by turning the front leveling feet clockwise or counterclockwise as necessary.

    Samsung Level the Feet

    Turn the front leveling feet clockwise (B) to lower the washer, and counterclockwise (C) to raise the washer.

Powering Your Washer

Samsung Powering Your Washer

Plug the power cord into a 3-prong, well grounded 120 volt 60 Hz approved electrical outlet protected by a 15-amp fuse or comparable circuit breaker.

Your washer is grounded through the third prong of the power cord when plugged into a three-prong grounded electrical outlet.

Test run

Make sure that you install your washer correctly by running the Rinse+Spin  after the installation is complete.
