Instructions for Use
4 plastic caps
Inlet hose (inside the machine or already installed)
Y-adapter (only supplied for certain models)
- Not removed transport bolts cause damages to the washing machine!
Keep the transport bolts and the wrench for further transporting of the washing
machine; in this case refit the transport bolts in reverse order.
1. - Unscrew the 4 screws of the transport bolts
with the wrench supplied; the screws are
quite long and you have to screw a while until
you can release them.
2. - Move the screws to the center of the holes
and remove them by pulling them out.
3. - To close the holes, insert the supplied plastic
caps in the wide part of the holes and push
them towards the edge of the appliance, until
they click into place.
- The appliance must be installed on a solid and level floor surface (if necessary use a spirit
level). If the floor is wooden or floating, distribute the weight by placing it on a sheet of
plywood measuring at least 60 x 60 cm and thickness of at least 3 cm which is screwed
to the floor. If the floor is uneven, adjust the 4 levelling feet as required; do not insert
pieces of wood etc. under the feet.
4. - Slacken the locknut clockwise (see arrow)
using the wrench supplied.
5. - Lift slightly the machine and adjust the height
of the foot revolving it.
6. - Important: tighten the locknut by turning it
anti-clockwise towards the appliance casing.
7. - If the water inlet hose is not already installed,
it must be screwed to the appliance.
If your washing machine has one inlet valve on
the back: connect it to cold fill only.

8. - If your washing machine has two inlet valves
on the back, you must connect both valves
to the water supply:
• either connect red inlet valve to hot fill tap and
blue inlet valve to cold fill tap.
• or connect both inlet valves to cold water tap by
using a Y-adapter.
Make sure all connections are tightly fixed.
Screw the inlet hose by hand to the tap and to the
inlet valve and tighten the nut. Do not use any
tools for fixing the inlet hose.

• No kinks in the hose!
• The appliance must not be connected to the mixing tap of an un-pressurized water
• Check water-tightness of connections by turning the tap completely on.
• If the hose is too short, replace it with a suitable length of pressure resistant hose
(1000 kPa min, EN 50084 approved type).
• Check the inlet hose regularly for brittleness and cracks and replace if necessary. It is
generally recommended to renew the inlet hose every 3 years.
• The washing machine can be connected without a non-return valve.

- For models with Water Stop hose:
If the flexible hose is too short, replace it with a longer Water Stop
hose available through our After-Sales Service or from your dealer.
The replacement must be carried out by an expert. While unscrewing
the water stop hose, the release lever must be pushed down.
9. - Unclip the drain hose from the holders marked by the arrows (depending on the model).
- If the drain hose is installed inside your washing machine, pull the hose completely out of
the holder and close the opening with cap “A” attached.
10.- Firmly connect the drain hose to a siphon or standpipe for drain water (if necessary
use the U-bend provided with the washing machine; it must be fixed at the end of
the drain hose).
• Make sure there are no kinks in the drain hose.
• Make sure the hose is firmly connected to siphon
or standpipe.
• To make an extension, use a hose of the same
type and secure the connections with clips.
• Max. Overall drain hose length: 2.50 m.
Use a socket with an earth connection.
Do not use extension leads or multi sockets.
The electrical power cable must be replaced exclusively by a licensed electrician.
Electrical connections must be made in accordance with local regulations.
