Tighten the nuts of the hose by hand. Never use a tool when
tightening the nuts.
When hose connection is completed, check whether there is leak
problems at the connection points by opening the taps fully. If any
leaks occur, turn off the tap and remove the nut. Retighten the nut
carefully after checking the seal. In order to prevent the water leaks
and resultant damages, keep the taps closed when you do not use
the product.
4.1.5 Connecting the drain hose to the drain
• Attach the end of the drain hose directly to waste water drain, lavatory or bathtub.
CAUTION: Your drain house will be flooded if the hose comes out of its housing during water discharge. Moreover, there
is risk of scalding due to high washing temperatures! In order to prevent such situations and make sure that the machine
performs water intake and discharge processes without any problem, fix the drain hose securely.
40 cm
100 cm
A
• Connect the drain hose to a minimum height of 40 cm
and a maximum height of 100 cm.
• In case the drain hose is elevated after laying it on the
floor level or close to the ground (less than 40 cm above
the ground), water discharge becomes more difficult and
the laundry may come out excessively wet. Therefore,
follow the heights described in the figure.
• To prevent the waste water to go back into the machine again and to ensure easy drainage, do not immerse
the end of the hose into the waste water or do not insert it into the drain for more than 15 cm. If it is too
long, cut it short.
• The end of the hose should not be bent, it should not be stepped on and the hose must not be pinched
between the drain and the machine.
• If the length of the hose is too short, use it by adding an original extension hose. Length of the hose may
not be longer than 3.2 m. To avoid water leak failures, the connection between the extension hose and the
drain hose of the product must be fitted well with an appropriate clamp as not to come off and leak.
