Installing A Washing Machine

Connect The Water
Connect the washing machine hoses

When installing a new washing machine it is always a good idea to install new washing machine hoses. Connect the washing machine hoses to the water outlets behind the washing machine. Note that they will be marked hot and cold on the machine somewhere and you will need to keep track of the hoses so you can remember to hook them into the appropriate hot and cold valves. Some hoses now come in blue and red so it is even easier to keep track of.

If the space for installing the washing machine is limited you may need to hook up the hot and cold water hoses to the machine, push the washer into position, then finish the hooking up the hoses to the valves.
