Before you start, know that it's vital that you use new hoses when installing the washer. If there is an old hose you were hoping to reuse, don't. Please purchase and use good quality inlet hoses. LG recommends the use of LG hoses. Any leaking, property damage, or damage to the washing machine caused by an improper installation or by the use of non-LG hoses is not covered under the terms of the LG warranty and is the sole responsibility of the customer and/or an installer. Check your LG product manual for the specific location of where your inlets are located.
It's time to insert a rubber seal into the threaded fitting on each hose: one on the water inlet on the washer, and one on the water hose that goes to the tap.
Connect the water supply hoses to the HOT and COLD water faucets tightly by hand and then tighten another 2/3 turn with pliers. Connect the blue hose to a cold water faucet and the red hose to a hot water faucet. Be sure to not over-tighten things.
After connecting the inlet hoses to the water faucets, turn on the water faucets to flush out foreign substances (dirt, sand or sawdust) in the water lines. Let the water drain into a bucket, and check the water temperature to make sure you've connected the hoses to the correct faucets.
Attach the hot water line to the provided inlet Y-connector and attach the short water line from the Y-connector to the full-size washer inlet. Then attach the long water line from the Y-connector to the pedestal washer inlet. Repeat with the cold water connections. Tighten the fittings securely without over-tightening. Turn on both faucets all the way and check for leaks at both ends of the hoses.
Ensure that the drain line is secure, or you could have a lot of unwanted water in your laundry room. There are three ways to install your drain hose: a standpipe, a laundry tub, and a floor drain.
Connect the drain hose of the full-size washer and the pedestal washer to the drain connector. Insert the included wire hose clamps on to the ends of the two drain hoses. Push the drain hoses firmly onto the drain connector. Adjust the wire hose clamps to prevent the hoses from coming loose or leaking. Failure to do so could result in flooding. Use of the drain connector helps avoid siphoning, odors, or improper draining.
Start by clipping the end of the hose into the elbow bracket. Now insert the end of the drain hose into a standpipe, or hang it over the side of the laundry tub and use a tie strap, or series of tie straps, to secure it in place. Check the total height of the hose and make sure it doesn't exceed 96 inches (2.45 meters) from the bottom of the washer. Do not use this drain hose with a floor drain. The end of the drain hose must be at least 29 inches above the floor for proper draining to occur.
