4.1.4 Connecting water supply
C
A
C
The water supply pressure required to run the product is between 1 to 10 bars (0.1 – 1 MPa). It is necessary to have
10 – 80 liters of water flowing from the fully open tap in one minute to have your machine run smoothly. Attach a
pressure reducing valve if water pressure is higher.
CAUTION: Models with a single water inlet should not be connected to the hot water tap. In such a case the
laundry will get damaged or the product will switch to protection mode and will not operate.
CAUTION: Do not use old or used water inlet hoses on the new product. It may cause stains on your laundry.
If you are going to use the double water-inlet product as a single (cold) water-inlet unit, you must install the
supplied stopper to the hot water valve before operating the product. (Applies for the products supplied with a
blind stopper group.)
Connect the special water supply hoses supplied with the product to the water
inlets on the product. Red hose (left) (max. 90 ºC) is for hot water inlet, blue hose
(right) (max. 25 ºC) is for cold water inlet.
Make sure that the hot and cold water taps are connected correctly when the
product is being installed. Otherwise, your laundry will come out hot at the end of
the washing process and wear out.

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.
40cm
100cm
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
