Placing Your Laundry Machine Number Decals
A numbered decal must be affixed to each one of your laundry machines using PayRange.
Before placing decals, ensure you are numbering your laundry machines from left to right and then from top to bottom as displayed in this illustration.
IMPORTANT: Maytag and Dexter are an exception to this rule as they need only a single, numbered decal for each machine stack). Decals do not apply to vending.
- Place the numbered decal where it's easily visible (we recommend near the coin slot). Remember that Maytag and Dexter stacks require a single numbered decal.
- Only affix the First Purchase Free decal if you are enrolled in the New User Program. To manage your enrollment.
