After owning a front load washer for 10+ yrs I just discovered they have a filter on the drain line. The manual doesn’t mention this at all mine was almost plugged completely. Here is a great video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79SUFzLjJlc
- Allow wood to acclimatize to the houses humidity for 5-7days before installing
- Remove baseboards if replacing or use quarter round to fill gap if leaving
- Stairs can be done with treads or nosing and strip hardwood
- Be aware of transition heights into other room
- Doors may need trimming to fit again
Run the drain hose to the drain receptacle. Depending on your plumbing, you’ll need to feed the hose into a drain on the floor, the wall, or into a laundry sink, or there may be a rigid pipe that extends down to a floor drain.
- Your washer should come with accessories such as straps and/or a hook to help you secure the drain pipe. Consult the manual for your machine to learn how to use these parts correctly in conjunction with your plumbing.
- Make sure to leave a space of several inches between the end of the hose and the bottom of the drain or sink, otherwise your machine may siphon drained water back up the drain pipe.
Snow and Ice Safety
Keep Your Natural Gas Meter and Appliance Exhaust Vents Clear
During the winter, and especially after a storm, keep an eye on your natural gas meter and appliance exhaust vents.
Snow or ice buildup could damage your gas meter, interrupt your gas service or cause an appliance to malfunction. This can create a serious safety hazard. For example, if your appliance vents are blocked with snow or ice it could cause your furnace to shut off or result in a buildup of dangerous carbon monoxide indoors.
If you find your home suddenly without heat, check your appliance vents to ensure they aren’t blocked.
