Connecting the water supply hose
The water supply hose must be connected to the washing machine at one end and to the water
faucet at the other. Do not stretch the water supply hose. If the hose is too short replace the
hose with a longer, high pressure hose.
1. Remove the adaptor from the
water supply hose.
4. Connect the water supply hose to the
adaptor. Pull down part (c) of the
water supply hose. When you release
part (c) the hose automatically connects
to the adaptor making a ’click’ sound.

To connect the water supply hose:
1. Take the L-shaped arm fitting for the cold water supply hose and connect to the cold water
supply intake on the back of the machine. Tighten by hand.
2. Connect the other end of the cold water supply hose to your sink's cold water faucet and
tighten it by hand. If necessary, you can reposition the water supply hose at the washing
machine end by loosening the fitting,rotating the hose, and retightening the fitting.
2. First, using a “+” type screw driver,
loosen the four screws on the adaptor.
Next, take the adaptor and turn part(b)
following the arrow until there is a 5mm
gap.
3. Connect adaptor to the water tap by
tightening the screws firmly.
Then, turn part (b) following the arrow
and put(a) and (b) together.
5. Connect the other end of the water
supply hose to the inlet water valve at
the top of the washer. Screw the hose
clockwise all the way in.
• If the water tap has a screw type faucet,
connect the water supply hose to the
tap as shown.

• Operate the appliance only from the type of power source indicated on the marking
label. If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your
appliance dealer or local power company.
DRY CAPACITY
• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this appliance is equipped
with a polarized alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other.
This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the
plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still doesn't fit, contact
your electrician to replace your outlet.
POWER
• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they are
unlikely to be walked on or pinched by items placed on or against them. Pay
particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where
they exit from the unit.
• Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or
electric shock.
