Remove the 4 bolts
along with the rubber
bungs by slightly
twisting the bung.
Install or store appliance where it will not be exposed to sub-zero temperatures or exposed to the weather. Fit ground of the
washing machine correctly to conform with all statutory regulations and ordinances. Ensure that the base opening is free from
obstruction by carpeting if the washing machine is installed on a carpeted floor. In countries where there is a risk of cockroach
infestation or other vermin, pay particular attention to keep the appliance and its surroundings in a clean condition at all times.
Any damage which may be caused by cockroaches or other vermin is not covered by the appliance guarantee.
CAUTION about positioning the appliance
Install the washing machine on a flat hard floor. Make sure that air circulation around the washing machine is
not impeded by carpets, rug etc.
• Never try to correct any unevenness in the floor using pieces of wood, cardboard or similar materials under the washing machine.
• If it is not possible to position the washing machine away from a gas cooker or coal burning stove, an insulation panel
(85x60cm) covered with aluminum foil on the side facing the cooker or stove, must be inserted between the two appliances.
• The washing machine must not be installed in rooms where the temperature may drop below 0°C.
• Please ensure that when the washing machine is installed an engineer can gain easy access in the event of a breakdown.
• Adjust all four feet using the transit bolt spanner provided to ensure that the appliance is stable, with 20mm clearnace between
the top of the washing machine and underside of the worktop.
BS Plug Safety Details (For U.K. User)
This appliance must be earthed As the colours of the wires in the mains lead
of this apparatus may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying
the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows: The green and yellow wire must
be connected to the terminal in the plug marked E or by the earth symbol or
coloured green or green and yellow. The wire coloured blue must be connected
to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured black. The wire coloured brown must be connected to the terminal
marked with the letter L or coloured red. If a 13 amp (BS 1363) plug is used, fit a 13 amp BS 1362 fuse.
CAUTION about the power cord

• The drain hose should not be placed higher than 100 cm above the floor.
Don’t strip or crossthread when connecting inlet hose to the valve.
• Proper securing of the drain hose will protect the floor from damage due to any water leakage.
If the water supply pressure is more than 1000kPa, a decompression
device should be installed.
• If the drain hose is too long do not force back into the washing machine. This will cause unusual noise.
• Make sure the connection to taps is tight enough.
Requirements for installation site
Level adjustment
• Proper level-adjustment of the washing machine prevents excessive noise and vibration.
Install the appliance on a solid and level floor
surface, preferably in a corner of the room.
• Make sure that there is no kink on the hose and
that it is not crushed.
Level floor: Permissible floor gradient under entire washing machine
is 1˚ .
When your washing machine has two valves:
• The inlet hose with the red connector is for the hot
water tap.

tap for water supply. In case the faucet is square or too big, remove the spacing ring before inserting
the tap into the adaptor.
We recommend connecting most appliances to a dedicated circuit. That is, a single outlet supplying power only to the appliance
concerned, without any additional outlets or branch circuits. Check the specifications of this owner‘s manual. Do not overload
wall sockets. Overloaded wall sockets, loose or damaged wall sockets or extension cords, frayed power cords, damaged or
cracked wire insulation are dangerous. Any of these conditions could result in electric shock or fire. Periodically examine the cord
of your appliance, and if its appearance indicates damage or deterioration, unplug it, discontinue use of the appliance, and have
the cord replaced with an exact replacement part by an authorized servicer. Protect the power cord from physical or mechanical
abuse, such as being twisted, kinked, pinched, squashed in a jamb of a door, or walked upon. Pay particular attention to plugs,
wall outlets, and the point where the cord exits the appliance. We recommend to use a residual current operated
device in the mains supply.
CAUTION about location and moving
This equipment is not designed for maritime use or for use mobile installations such as caravans, aircraft etc. Turn off the stopcock if the machine is to be left for any length of time (e.g. if you are going on holiday), especially if there is no floor drain (gully)
in the immediate vicinity. If relocating the appliance use the original packing material. Disable the door lock to prevent young
children becoming trapped inside. Packaging material (e.g. plastic film, Styrofoam) can be dangerous for children. There is a risk
of suffocation! Keep all packaging well away from children.
CAUTION about the floor surface
• Periodically check the condition of the hose and
replace the hose if necessary.

(10cm: rear / 2cm:right & left side). Do not place or store laundry products on top of the washing machine at any times. They can damage
the finish or controls of the machine.
Water supply pressure must be between 1.0-10 bar (100kPa~1000kPa)
• Two rubber seals are supplied with the water inlet
hoses. They are used for preventing water leaks.

used then make sure that the solvent has been carefully washed out before inserting the clothes into the appliance. Oil may remain in
the tub after a whole cycle resulting in fire during drying. So, do not load oily clothes.
• Do not operate the appliance at locations where flammable substances are present such as oil, benzene or highly inflammable gas.
Such materials may cause fire or explosion. Never use combustible detergents.
• Only add the prescribed amount of softener. Excessive amounts may damage the clothes.
