When the carton is opened the sound shield will be located on top of the washing machine as shown below. Do not throw it away, as it is to be assembled into the bottom of the unit as shown below.
September Frequently Asked Questions
September Walk the Path & Check Hook Ups When you get to the final destination for the new product, review the electrical, water, and gas hook ups in the home as required. Before taking any actions, be sure you can safely disconnect existing products, carefully remove them from the home, and correctly hook up the new products. Some unsafe conditions you might run into are: Appliances that are directly wired into the home (no plug or outlet). Gas or water lines that do not have above ground shut off valves. Obstacles that require the delivery team to hoist products overhead. Once you have determined that you can safely and successfully make the delivery, then you should unpack the new appliance, and remove the old one from the home. Review the HDS Truck Manifest closely. Sometimes the customer wants a “brown box” delivery, where the product is not hooked up and stays in it’s original packaging.
September Oval Fitting for Dryer Exhaust Some East coast builders are using an oval fitting for dryer exhaust into the wall. Some teams incorrectly bend the flexible ducting to make it fit. The correct way is to use an Oval to Round Venting adapter. Oval to Round Venting Adapters (D/ ) are available from the DDC Teams should request oval to round adapters if oval fittings are being used in your local market
