Remember these are Koreans making the manuals. Some of their instructions are downright comical in the way that they explain how to check voltage, etc. Very primitive translations to say the least.
from PDF page 42 of the Samsung Manual:
"... the electric shock may occur by touching and be careful that the strong and weak electricity are mixed."
After leaving this Earth, "Do you want the smoking or non-smoking section?"

3-Wire Cord: (no green ground wire)
Neutral (white) connects to the center Terminal Strip
and a metal Strap is used to connect it to the Washer chassis.

4-Wire Cord: (with green ground wire)
Neutral (white) connects to the center Terminal Strip,
but the metal Strap is disconnected from the Washer chassis.
The Green ground wire connects to the Chassis.
