Dimensions show recommended spacing allowed, except for closet door ventilation 

openings which are minimum required. This washer has been tested for installation with 

spacing of 0" (0 mm) clearance on the sides. Consider allowing more space for ease of 

installation and servicing, and spacing for companion appliances and clearances for walls, 

doors, and floor moldings. Add spacing of 1" (25 mm) on all sides of washer to reduce 

noise transfer. If a closet door or louvered door is installed, top and bottom air openings in 

door are required.
