INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Accessories

Please check you received the following accessories with your Fisher & Paykel washer. You will find them inside the drum or attached to the packaging.

2 x Inlet hoses

1 x Drain hose guide

1 x Installation instructions and User guide

1 x Wrench

1 x Installation leaflet (attached to the top of the washer)

Unpacking

WARNING!

Recycle or destroy the carton and plastic bags after the washer is unpacked. Make materials inaccessible to children. Children might use them for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads or plastic sheets can become airtight chambers causing suffocation.

To ensure the best performance from your new washer please follow the instructions below.

Removing the packaging:

1Remove the outer packaging. Note: a small amount of water may be seen inside the packaging and inside the washer. This is the result of factory testing and is normal.

2Tilt the machine backwards and ‘walk’ it off the base one foot at a time. Not doing so may cause damage to your floor and washer.

3Remove all packaging and accessories from inside the drum. Note: DO NOT remove the screw or clip holding the hose.

Removing the transit bolts

The clothes washer is fitted with 4 transit bolts at the rear to avoid damage during transportation.

IMPORTANT!

The 4 transit bolts MUST be removed prior to operation of the machine. Failure to remove these will result in damage to the machine.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

If you have an uncontrolled water heating source (eg a wet back or solar heating system) you should fit a tempering valve. This will ensure the hot water temperature remains within safe limits.

Contact your registered plumber to select and install the tempering valve.

IMPORTANT!

This appliance must be installed in accordance with the installation instructions before use.

Provide accessibility to the plug or incorporate a switch in the fixed wiring in accordance with the wiring rules to allow disconnection of the appliance from the supply after installation.

Water supply requirements

Hot and cold water faucets MUST be installed within 42” (107cm) of your washer’s water inlet. The faucets MUST be 3/4” (1.9cm) garden hose-type so inlet hoses can be connected. Water pressure MUST be between 10 and 120 pounds per square inch. Your water department can advise you of your water pressure. The hot water temperature should be set to deliver water at 120° to 140°F (48° – 60°C) to provide proper Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) performance.

IMPORTANT!

If you are using an extension cord or a portable electrical outlet device (eg multisocket outlet box), ensure that it is positioned so that it does not come into contact with water or moisture. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN DEATH OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK.

Do not touch or operate the machine with wet hands or with bare-feet.

A damaged power cord must be replaced by a Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician, in order to avoid a hazard. The appliance must not be operated until it is repaired, as there is risk of electric shock.

Do not operate this machine if it has been damaged during transport. Contact your Fisher & Paykel dealer or Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician.

BEFORE YOU DO YOUR FIRST WASH

EN

Before you start, it is a good idea to go through the following checklist:

1Have the packaging and transit bolts been removed?

2Is the drain hose threaded through the ‘U bend’ (with no more than 3/4” (20mm) extended) and hooked into your standpipe or tub, or attached to a spigot?

3Is the hot hose connected to the hot valve (color-coded orange, if present)? Is the cold hose connected to the cold valve (color-coded white)? Have the faucets been turned on?

4Is the machine correctly leveled, feet are locked and cabinet corners clear of the floor and walls?

5Has the power cord been connected to an appropriate power supply and the power turned on?

6Have you performed the installation test cycle?

7We recommend you complete your first cycle with a half-load amount of detergent and without a load in order to remove any residues remaining in the machine from the manufacturing process.

IMPORTANT!

You must ensure all 4 transit bolts have been removed from your washer before you start using it. If the transit bolts are not removed, they will damage your washer and YOUR LIMITED WARRANTY WILL BE COMPROMISED.

WASHER CONTROLS

SmartTouch™ Control Dial

The SmartTouch™ Control Dial provides easy and efficient wash cycle selection. As you rotate the dial, the icon of the wash cycle selected will be illuminated, along with the default settings for that cycle on the right side of the control panel.

SmartTouch™ buttons

The smooth, easy clean buttons enable easy selection of options with lights clearly showing the selections you are making.

Digital display screen

The digital display screen provides feedback on how long the wash cycle has to go. If you have programmed a ‘Delay Start’, the time remaining until the cycle will start will be displayed here, along with any messages to help you with the overall running of your washer (eg user warnings).

Time to go

Your washer displays approximately how many minutes the cycle you are running has remaining, so that you can tell at a glance when your washing will be finished.

Please be aware that a number of factors can influence the overall cycle time, eg the water flow rate, water pressure, whether hot water is being used from the faucet or the water is heated by the internal heater, load size, cycle and option selections.

Therefore cycle times will vary. Unexpected events in a wash cycle (eg out of balance, oversudsing) can lengthen the cycle time.

Progress lights

The progress lights indicate what part of the cycle the washer is currently on (wash, rinse or spin). All three lights are on at the beginning of the cycle. The light for the current part of the cycle flashes, and each one goes out when that part of the cycle is complete.

Keylock mode

Keylock can be used to lock the buttons on your washer. This will avoid accidental button pushes. For more detail please refer to the ‘Wash cycle options’ section.

Drum light (WH2424F model only)

Your machine has a drum light to help assist you when loading and unloading your washing machine. When you press ‘POWER’, the LED light in the drum will turn on, after 2 minutes it will automatically turn off. At the end of the cycle, the drum light will turn on again for 5 minutes to help facilitate unloading.

SORTING AND LOADING

When preparing your wash load there are some important things to consider:

Sorting

Sort items according to color, fabric type, and soil type. Wash fine, delicate fabrics separately from thick, heavy fabrics. Always separate colored items from whites, especially when they are new. Color run could be an issue if you wash items at higher temperatures. Some soils, like mud and blood are best washed in cold water. Oily soils (eg some foods and marks on shirt collars) are best washed in warm water. The following are recommendations for what cycles and settings you may wish to wash different items on, and suggestions for special wash requirements.

SORTING AND LOADING

EN

Before you load

Check pockets for items that could damage your clothes or get caught in the washer.

Close zippers, hooks and eyes, and other fastenings (ie fasten the opening of comforter), and remove loose bra wires. All these can damage both your washer and your clothes.

Place delicate items, such as lingerie, in a mesh laundry bag before placing in the machine.

Pre-treat any stains, taking care not to spray pre-treaters on your washer as they can cause damage to the plastic surfaces.

Loading

Your washer will be more efficient when washing larger loads, so try to collect enough items to loosely fill the drum when the items are dry.

IMPORTANT!

Do not overload your washing machine beyond its rated capacity.

Please do not under any circumstances wash an electric blanket in your washer unless the care label specifically states it is safe to do so.

Do not wash curtains in this washer, as sunlight makes them brittle and they may disintegrate during washing.
