See Washer and Dryer Installation & Care Instruction Manuals for full details.1
Place the drain hose no more than 4.5" into the standpipe. See Manual for additional requirements by drain system type.
Connect water inlet hoses and turn valves on all the way.

Clean and inspect existing vent and exit port, then connect to exhaust hood and dryer.
For gas dryers, connect gas supply line, open valve and check for leaks.
Contact a qualified electrical installer, if needed.

Connecting your appliance lets you tackle your laundry to-do list even when you’re on the go.2 Once connected, you can use the Whirlpool® App to:
- Start, stop or monitor cycle progress from anywhere.
- Get notifications to help you keep laundry moving.
- Save favorite cycles, get cycle suggestions and access troubleshooting videos.
You’ll gain easy access to service, replacement parts, manuals, warranty information and more to keep your Whirlpool® Appliance at peak performance.
Starting with bulky items first, load your laundry in loose, untangled clumps so that it is evenly distributed around the agitator or impeller. You should also avoid packing down clothes, as this will hinder the movement needed for a proper clean.
If your washer displays the F0E9 error code it means that the load is unbalanced or too large. Redistribute your laundry, then press start to resume the cycle.
