INSTALLATION
Water Supply Hose
Points to remember
•
Follow the instructions in this section to avoid water leaks.
•
Don’t connect the hose to a combination tap.
•
Don’t twist, squash, modify or cut the hose.
•
Optimum water pressure in the main pipe is 0.1 MPa - 1.0 MPa. If the water pressure is set higher
than this, you will need to install a depressurising valve. Ensure the water flow amount and speed
from the tap is sufficient. If you’re unsure, ask a qualified technician to connect the hose.
•
This unit must only be connected to cold water mains using the new water inlet hose provided.
•
If your washing machine is delivered in freezing weather conditions, leave it at room temperature
for 24 hours after you’ve set it up before using it. This ensures there’s no ice blocking the appliance.
Connecting the Water Supply Hose
1. Connect the 90° end of the hose to the back of your
machine, it only needs to be hand tight. Check the
black washer is in place.
2. Connect the straight end of the hose to the
connector on the cold water supply, it only needs to
be hand tight. Check that the filter and black washer
are in place.
3/4”
3/4”
min. 10 mm
Plastic joint
min. 10 mm
3. Open the tap slowly and check that there are no
leaks around either connection.
• The connections are subject to water pressure.
• Use the hose set supplied with the appliance. Old hose sets should not be reused.
Water Drain Hose
Points to remember:
•
Don’t twist, pull out or bend the drain hose.
•
Your washing machine should be no more than 95cm from the drain outlet
(see the hose and cable lengths diagram).
Draining to a sink or wash-basin
•
Secure the drain hose in position, so it can’t drop out of the basin.
•
Don’t block the basin’s drain outlet, and make sure that the drainage
through it is sufficient.
•
Don’t let the tip of the drain hose dip into the drained water, as this can
cause the water to flow back into the washing machine.
•
Don’t extend the length of the drain hose.
U-Shape Holder
(not supplied)
Draining to a wash-basin
The drain hose should not be submerged in water and should be
securely fixed and leak-free. If the drain hose is placed on the ground
or if the pipe is at a height of less than 60cm, the washing machine
will continuously drain while being filled (self-siphoning).

Connecting to the Mains Supply
For your safety:
•
Do not use a mains plug adapter or extension cable.
•
If the mains cable or mains plug are damaged, stop using them and call a qualified technician for
assistance.
The mains cord of your washing machine is equipped with an Earthed plug. This plug must always
be inserted to an earthed socket capable of supplying 13 Amps. If you don’t have such a socket and
fuses in your house, please call a qualified electrician.
•
Moving the Washing Machine from One Location to Another
Ensure the transit bolts are fixed in place prior to moving the washing machine.
Before you move the washing machine:
•
Shut off the tap and run the washing machine to drain the water. Drain any remaining water from
the pump hose.
•
Disconnect the unit from the mains.
•
Depressurise the water supply hose and remove it.

Standard washing cycle programs are the Standard 60° C Cotton Program and the Standard
40°C Cotton Program. These cycles are suitable for cleaning naturally-soiled laundry and are the
most efficient washing cycles in terms of combined energy and water consumption.
• For all washing programs, please following the detergent recommendations on the garment
label or on the detergent’s packaging.
• Washing times depend on the program type, ambient water temperature and wash load (weight
and type).
• Energy and water consumption will vary according to wash load and type, extra functions, tap
water and ambient temperatures.
