INSTALLATION
Unpacking
Before starting the machine up, the transport security
bolts must be removed as follows:
You are advised to keep all the packaging for re-use in
case the appliance has to be transported again.
1. Unscrew and remove the
three rear transit bolts
(using a spanner).
2. Lay the machine gently
on its back, making sure
that the hoses are not
squashed.
We suggest a polystyre-
ne angle bracket from the
packing is placed on the
floor before tilting it back
to avoid the hoses being
squashed.
3. Carefully remove the
polythene bags located
at the base of the
machine by pulling them
toward the centre of the
machine.
4. Place the machine in an
upright position and
remove the three plastic
bolts.
5. Plug the 3 holes with the
plastic plugs which you
can find in the envelope
containing the instruction
booklet.
Positioning
Your new Tricity Bendix washing machine has been
designed to be permanently plumbed in to you home's
water supply and drainage system. However, if this is not
possible, it may be connected to suitable existing taps, with
the drain hose discharging into the sink.
The appliance has two inlet hoses, hot and cold, with
female 3/4” BSP thread connectors. If this connection is
not compatible with the plumbing of the existing installation,
a variety of connectors are available from good hardware
stores and plumbers merchants to suit most domestic
plumbing. Any alterations to your existing plumbing must
be carried out by a competent person, or qualified plumber.
Water inlet
The inlets on the back of the appliance are colour coded,
blue for cold and red for hot.
Before connecting the ho-
ses, be sure to fit the black
washers supplied as per
diagram.
If only a cold water supply
is available, connect the
two hoses to a cold water
outlet by means of a Y
connection piece.
Installation should comply with local water authority and
building regulation requirements.
The appliance must be given a separate cold water supply
and not be connected to a mixer tap, a single outlet water
heater or a booster pump. A minimum water pressure or
7psi is required for safe operation of the appliance.
If you cannot make the cold water connection direct from
the rising mains, you may be able to operate the appliance
from your cold water storage system.
There should be a minimum distance of 5.02m (16 1/2ft)
between the appliance’s inlet and the bottom of the tank.
There will be sufficient pressure for the hot water supply
from the hot water cylinder if the height between the
appliance's inlet and the bottom of the cold water storage
cistern (not between the appliance and the hot water
cylinder) is at least 2.74m (9ft).
Set the hoses correctly by loosening the ring nuts. After
positioning the inlet hoses, be sure to tighten the ring nuts
again to prevent leaks.
Water drainage
If you intend the drain hose
from the machine to empty
into a sink, make sure that
the sink is empty and that
the plug hole is not blocked.
If the machine is
permanently plumbed in,
hook the end of the hose
into a standpipe installed for
the purpose. The standpipe
must have an internal
diameter of at least 40mm (1 1/2”) in order that there is an
air gap between the drain hose and the standpipe. Make
sure, that it is designed in such a way, that the end of the
drain hose cannot be covered with water.
Important
Before connecting up the machine to new pipework or to
pipework that has not been used for some time, run off a
reasonable amount of water to flush out any debris that
may have collected in the pipes.
Whether discharging
into a sink or a
standpipe, check that
the end of the drain
hose is neither too high
nor too low. The top of
the curve in the hose's
40mm end should be no more
inside dia min than 85 cm (34) and
no less than 50 cm
(20”) above floor level.
500 mm min
850 mm max
500 mm min
850 mm max
Levelling
Level the washing machine by loosening or tightening the
feet. Accurate levelling prevents vibration, noise and
displacement of the machine during operation. After
levelling the machine, secure the feet by tightening the ring
nuts with the aid of a screwdriver.
Some vibration is inevitable, especially if mounted on a
wooden floor.
Sprung wooden floors are particularly susceptible to
vibration. For advice, consult a builder. If possible, always
place the machine on a solid floor.
Special conditions
If the floor is carpeted with a deep-pile carpet or covered
with crumbly or soft material, insert a rigid support base
under the feet to prevent noise, vibration or displacement.
The base should protrude a few centimetres beyond the
edges of the machine.
Warning
The machine should NOT be placed directly on deep pile
carpeting.
Note
Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it is
easily accessible for the engineer in the event of a
breakdown.
All plumbing and electrical work required to install this
appliance must be carried out by competent persons or
qualified plumbers or electricians.
IN THE INTEREST OF THE ENVIRONMENT
Washing machines and dishwashers should be connected to
the FOUL drainage system, the water will then be taken to a
sewage works for treatment before being discharged safely
into a river.
It is essential that these appliances are not connected to the
surface water drainage system as this water is discharged di-
rectly into a river or stream and may cause pollution.
If you require any further advice please contact your local
authority drainage department.

» Sort the laundry according to the type of fabric, colour-
fastness and how dirty it is.
* Close poppers and zips, and fasten loose buttons.
* Load the laundry loosely alternating large items with small
ones.
+ Avoid washing unhemmed or torn items as they may fray.
* Before washing, empty all pockets of small objects which
may have been left inside (coins, keys, screws, etc.), as
these could damage the drain pump.
* When washing curtains, remove the hooks.
* lt is essential to wash new coloured items separately
when washing for the first time.
* When washing fabrics requiring different wash
temperatures together, always select the lowest
temperature.
e White items should not be washed with coloured items.
* Very small items (handkerchiefs, ribbons, socks, etc.)
should be washed in a washing bag or pillow case.
* Use a good quality detergent suitable for automatic
washing machines.
* Use the correct quantities of detergent.
* For wool, use a gentle detergent only in small quantities.
Bleach is very corrosive; it should be used with care and
kept out of reach of children.
+
10
Some stains such as fruit, wine, grass, rust, etc. are
difficult to remove and should be treated before washing
with specific products, which can be found in most
hardware shops. In some cases it may help to soak the
stain before washing with a special pre soak product or
biological detergent.
Only wool marked “Pure New Wool - washable,
preshrunk” can be washed in the machine using the wool
programme; other types of wool should be washed by
hand or dry cleaned.
Once you have finished using the machine, you are
advised to unplug it and turn off the water tap.
To avoid an excessive and damaging amount of lather
when washing net curtains, it is advisable to wash large
curtains singularly and take extra care when measuring
the detergent.
Should an excess of lather accidentally occur, switch off
the machine, select the spin programme which is
preceded by a drain cycle, to remove the lather and then
start the wash again.

IMPORTANT NOTES
For best results, always use the dispenser drawer for
dispensing detergents and liquid additives.
When using liquid detergent and a prewash programme,
place the detergent into the correct compartment in the
dispenser drawer, after the prewash has finished.
Once the dispenser has been filled, close it by pushing it in
gently. This is particularly important if you are using fabric
conditioner to avoid the conditioner entering the machine
prematurely.
WHICH DETERGENT?
To ensure you obtain the best wash results from
your appliance, it is important to use the right
detergent in your everyday wash, and only
detergents recommended for use in automatic
machines.
To maintain the appearance of your clothes and
household textiles and to make them last longer
you should use different types of detergent for
different washes, whether for whites, colours or
delicates.
Whites
We recommend the Ariel product
range which is biological and
designed to provide excellent
cleaning and stain removal even
at low temperatures.
Non Biological
If you prefer to use a non
biological detergent, which does ____
not contain enzymes we LF |
recommend Fairy. Fairy provides ! SUR a) [NE
| AFAL -; — ar
good cleaning and stain removal. Nez re
Coloureds |
For coloured items you should
use a detergent which is
designed to ciean while
maintaining the original colour.
Ariel Color does not contain Nan COLOR
bleach and therefore helps to
preserve colours.
Delicate ltems
When washing delicates such as
woollens, you should use a
product which is specially
designed to care for fine fabrics.
Dreft Automatic is suitable for
woollens and other delicates.
Laundry Bleach
For additional stain removal you
may wish to use a product such
as Ace Gentle Bleach which is
used in addition to your chosen
detergent. Ace is suitable for all
washable fabrics including silks,
woollens and coloureds.
AND IN WHICH FORM?
Not only are there different types of detergent, but
they are also available in different forms. Whether
you choose a powder or liquid in traditional or
compact form is down to personal choice.
Traditional Powders
Pour the powder directly into the dispenser drawer.
Do not sprinkle powder onto clothes in the machine
drum.
Traditional Liquids
Liquid can be placed in the main wash
compartment of the detergent drawer marked with
the symbol Ul), start the machine immediately
upon placing the detergent in the dispenser drawer.
Alternatively the detergent is measured into the
specially designed dosing device* which should be
placed on top of the laundry, and at the back of the
machine drum.
Compact Powders and Liquids
Compact detergents (or concentrates as they are
also known) are available in liquid or powder form,
and generally require a smaller dosage. Follow the
manufacturers instructions to ensure the most
economical usage. Pour the detergent directly into
the dispenser drawer, or alternatively measure the
detergent into the specially designed dosing
device* which should be placed on top of the
laundry, and at the back of the machine drum.
12
* If you use a dosing device in a washer dryer,
pleasure ensure the dosing device/ball is
removed before carrying out a drying
programme.
Fabric Conditioners
These are ideal for improving “softness”, and also
reduce static cling on synthetics and make ironing
easier. They are available in two types:
For example Lenor liquid fabric
softener, for use in the washing
machine/washer dryer. The
liquid fabric softener should be
poured into the compartment
marked with the symbol & .
Follow the manufacturer's dosage
instructions and never exceed the
MAX level.
Bounce conditioning sheets for
use in a tumble dryer. We
recommend the conditioning
sheets are pinned (using a safety
pin) to an article of laundry and
placed in the tumble dryer.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Before any maintenance or cleaning is carried out you must
DISCONNECT the appliance from the electricity supply.
Descaling
The water we normally use contains lime. It is a good idea
to periodically use a water softening powder in the machine.
Do this separately from any laundry washing, and according
to the softening powder manufacturers instructions. This
will help to prevent the formation of lime deposits.
After each wash
Leave the door ajar for a while. This helps to prevent mould
and stagnant smells forming inside the appliance. Keeping
the door open after a wash will also help to preserve the
door seal.
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with soapy water
only, then dry thoroughly.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
Having removed the drawer, use a small brush to clean the
recess, ensuring that all washing powder residue is
removed from the upper and lower part of the recess.
Replace the drawer and run the rinse programme for a few
minutes without any clothes in the drum.
The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below 0°C,
certain precautions should be taken.

Cleaning the filter
The water drain filter
|
|
Р0201 — |
A clean filter is important for the correct functioning of the
machine, and should therefore be cleaned after every
wash.
Open the filter door and place a container underneath to
catch any spillage. If the filter is blocked and the machine
is unable to drain, you will need to drain the water from the
machine manually at this stage. To do this, unhook the
drain hose from the standpipe or sink, and hold the end of
the hose over a bowl! on the floor. The water should drain
by gravity into the bowl. When the bowl is full, hook the
hose back up and empty the bowl. Repeat the procedure
until water stops flowing out.
Unscrew and remove the filter.
Clean carefully under a fast running tap.
| ALOIS
Warning
When the appliance is in use and depending on the
programme selected there can be hot water in the filter.
Never remove the filter during a wash cycle, always wait
until the appliance has finished the cycle, and is empty.
When replacing the filter, ensure it is securely retightened
so as to stop leaks and young children being able to
remove it.
The water inlet filters
If your water is very hard or
contains traces of lime
deposit, the water inlet filters
may become clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to
clean them from time to time.
Turn off the water taps.
Unscrew the water inlet
hoses.
Remove and clean the filters using a hard bristle brush.
Replace the filters and tighten up the inlet hoses.
