Step 1.

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.

Step 2.

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.

Step 3.

The hot water line goes in the red hot water inlet on the back of the washer. Now attach the cold water line to the blue cold water inlet, also on the back of the washer. Make sure you're not cross-threading the hose fittings, then tighten them securely without over-tightening.

Step 4.

Almost done. Now attach the hot water line to the hot water tap, and the cold water line to the cold water tap. Tighten the fittings.

Step 5.

Open the water taps fully to check for leaks, and inspect the hose for cracks and wear. Replace if necessary.


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.


Standpipe or Laundry Tub: 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 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.

Floor Drain: Simply insert the end of the drain hose into the floor drain. Secure the hose in place to prevent it from moving.
