Place the Water Leak Sensor 1 on the floor, next to the washing machine, ideally at the rear (near the water connections). If the washing machine is in a drain pan, place the sensor in the pan.

Hang the Water Leak Sensor 2 from the included mounting hook, or mount it with the optional ruggedized wall-mount bracket. Place the cord on the floor, optionally encircle the washer, as a minimum place on the floor at the rear of the washer (near the water connections). If the washer is elevated on a pedestal, consider the pedestal's effect on the path of leaking water, and adjust the location of the cord accordingly.
