Electrical Requirements

This appliance should be connected to the mains supply via a suitable switched socket in an accessible position.

WARNING: This appliance must be earthed.

FUSES

Your appliance comes fitted with a plug and a 13A fuse. If you need to replace the fuse, only those rated at 13A and ASTA approved to BS1362 should be used. To change fuse, lift holder to vertical position and lift fuse out. To replace, insert fuse and push fuse holder down into locked position. Correct replacement is identified by colour coding, or marking on base of plug.

WARNING: Do not use plug unless fuse holder is in locked position.

CHANGING THE PLUG

Cut off and dispose of the supplied plug if it does not fit your socket.

WARNING: To avoid a shock hazard do not insert this plug into a socket anywhere else.

If you change the plug, the colour of wires in the mains lead may not correspond with the colour of the markings identifying terminals in the plug. You should therefore wire it as shown (see illustration). If the mains lead needs to be replaced at any time, it should be replaced by a special lead obtainable from your local authorised Creda Service Centre.

A charge will be made if you have damaged the existing lead or require a longer one. It is strongly advised that this work is carried out by a qualified electrician.

CE marking certifies that this appliance complies with requirements laid down in EEC Directive 89:336 (Electromagnetic compatibility) and subsequent modifications and Low Voltage Directive 73/23/EEC.

Positioning & Adjusting the feet

Choosing the position of your appliance will influence its performance.

Position where possible on a solid floor. Some vibration may occur with a wooden floor.

Take care with vinyl floor coverings. The weight of the appliance may cause indentations in some vinyl floor coverings.

For your safety and to comply with IEE regulations, you should not install your appliance in a bath or shower room. Seek professional advice if you wish to do so.

Ensure sufficient space is allowed for the appliance. Dimensions should be a minimum of:- 600mm Wide (235/8”), 600mm Deep (235/8”) and 900mm High (351/2”).

Ensure the electrical socket and water taps are easily accessible and that the water supply can be isolated if necessary.

Your appliance may become noisy or move about the floor if it is not stabilised.

To adjust your appliance it must be in an upright position, then :-

Release locking rings on the two front feet.

Screw feet in or out until the appliance is standing firm and level.

Ensure all feet are in firm contact with the floor.

Tighten the locking rings on the front feet.

Recycling & Disposal Information

As part of Creda’s continued commitment to helping the environment, Creda may use quality recycled components to keep down customer costs and minimise material wastage. Please dispose of packaging and old appliances carefully. To minimise risk of injury to children, remove the door, plug and cut mains cable off flush with the appliance. Dispose of seperately to ensure that the appliance can no longer be plugged into a mains socket.

Supply

 

Inlet to machine

The temperature of the incoming household hot water supply should ideally be 60°C and no higher than 70°C as this could cause damage to both your laundry and appliance.

Methods of Plumbing

The water supply taps must be easily accessible when the appliance is installed. Your taps should be in good condition or it may leak when turned full on. Mixer taps are unsuitable, if you have them you will need to use permanent plumbing. Adaptors are required to connect to sink taps.

Permanent Plumbing

There must be taps or stopcocks so that the water supply can be turned off, isolating the appliance from the household supply.

Existing Plumbing

If you have an existing installation please check that this includes taps or stopcocks to isolate the appliance. The appliance must be connected to the water supply using the new hose set supplied, old hose sets should not be used.

Removing the Polystyrene Pyramid

After removing the packaging from the machine, ensure that the polystyrene pyramid (shown at the side) has come away from the underside of the machine, with the polystyrene base.

If it has not come away, remove it by tilting the machine backwards until the pyramid can be seen and then remove.

3

Connect to a drainage system

Do not remove hooked end support from drainage hose.

Do not position standpipe near an electrical outlet.

For drainage into a standard work top sink ensure outlet pipe has a minimum bore of 32 mm. To avoid syphoning ensure the end of the drainage hose is above the water level in the sink. If your sink is inset, the front edge of the basin must be less than 75 mm from the front edge of your work top.

We recommend one of the following methods:-

Into a Standpipe

Ensure the standpipe has a minimum bore of 38mm (112”).

1. Ensure the top of the standpipe is at least 500mm (20”) from the floor.

2. Untie GREY drainage hose and place approximately 100mm (4”) into the standpipe.

3.If the end of your GREY drainage hose is fitted with ‘Retaining Flaps’ ensure they are fully inserted into the standpipe as shown (Fig. 2)

500 mm

Into a Sink Waste System

Fig 3

Ensure the sink outlet pipe has a minimum diameter of 32mm (114”).

1.Untie drainage hose from rear of the appliance.

2.Reposition the Hooked End Support as required along the GREY drainage hose.

3.If fitting an under sink waste disposal unit (Fig 3), cut out the membrane or blanking plug.

4.Attach the end of the GREY drainage hose to the undersink waste disposal securely as shown using a hose clip (Fig 4).

If the washcare label states that the garment is machine washable then we advise placing it in a sealed pillow case or similar washbag.

Pre-treatstains before washing.

Close zips, tie belts, strings etc... and press studs to prevent tangling.

Remove sharp objects or coins from pockets before washing as they may damage clothes.

Limit size of absorbent loads ie; towels, to 3kg (7lb) to give good washing/ rinsing results.

Place small items in a wash bag.

Check wash labels as some items may require a cool programme.

Something wrong with your appliance

Before calling your nearest Service Office, look at this list, to find a possible solution to your problem.

My appliance will not fill or take in detergent...

Is the machine plugged in and switched on?

Is the socket OK? Try another appliance in the socket.

Is the fuse in the machine plug OK? If not, replace it.

Did you check the water supply was flowing before connecting the hoses to the appliance inlet valves? (see,‘Hot and Cold Fill Connection’).

Are the hoses correctly connected, unkinked and the water supply taps fully turned on?

Have you pressed the On/Off button?

Have you closed the door firmly?

It will not pump out the water...

Has the drain hose been installed correctly? (see,‘Connect to a Drainage System’).

Is the hose kinked?

If you have connected your appliance to a sink waste system ensure that you have cut out the membrane on the U bend pipe fitted to the sink and check the unit is not blocked with lint.

The door will not open...

Has the programme finished?

Your appliance has an interlocking door system which cannot be opened when a programme has been selected, the machine switched ‘ON’ and the indicator light is illuminated.

On completion of a programme the indicator light will take approximately 1-2minutes to go out before the door can be opened.

The door release is stuck...

Switch off the mains button, press gently on the door handle to unlock the latch, pull handle to open the door.

It’s Leaking...

Are the fill hoses tightened correctly? Perhaps the washers are not sealing properly?

Is the standpipe blocked?

Or is your household drain blocked?

If you cannot clear the blockage you will need to call a plumber.

Steam is coming from the dispenser drawer...

During hot washes the machine is designed to vent steam from the dispenser drawer during hot washes.

The clothes are not dry enough...

Did you use a short spin programme on a non-syntheticload?

Did the water pump out? Check your waste plumbing setup.

Was the wash load out of balance?

The programme takes a long time...

Some programmes do take a long time.

Other things which can extend programme times include:

Low water pressure

Low temperature of the incoming hot water

It makes a noise or vibrates during spin...

Your appliance will make some noise, especially during spin cycles. Small loads of heavy or bulky items (towels etc) can occasionally cause out of balance conditions, but the machine will usually sort itself out. If the noise is excessive you should check the following:

Has the transit bracket been removed?

Have you removed loose items such as

coins etc... from the pockets as these can rattle about inside the appliance drum and cause damage.

Have you adjusted the feet to stabilise the appliance?

The dispenser drawer will not close properly...

Is the drawer clogged with detergent?

Suds are coming from the dispenser drawer...

Have you used the correct amount of detergent suitable for automatic washing machines?

If you have used the wrong type, flush out your appliance by selecting a rinse programme.

Follow instructions on the detergent pack, taking into consideration load size, soiled loads and water hardness.

There is water in the fabric conditioner compartment...

Clean dispenser drawer and compartments.

If your Machine Does Not Spin...

Your machine has detected an unbalanced load and has finished the programme without completing the spin. Do not immediately call out a service engineer. Redistribute the washed clothes by hand and reselect the appropriate spin only programme.

NOTE: If washing only one item add another to help balance the load.
