SAFETY AND WARNINGS
!
WARNING!
Electric Shock Hazard If you are using an extension cord or a portable electrical outlet device (eg multi-socket 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.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING! When using your clothes washer, follow basic precautions, including the following:

This clothes washer is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they are supervised or given instructions on how to use the washer by someone responsible for their safety.

The washer should only be used for washing and rinsing of textiles where this is indicated on the care label.

The door will be locked from the start of the cycle until the cycle is complete for safety reasons. It is possible to open the door during the cycle under certain conditions (refer to page 19).

Never force the door open.

Keep children away from the washer while it is in operation.

Supervise children to ensure they do not play with the washer or climb inside the drum.

Do not touch the glass part of the door during a cycle as the door can become hot.

Do not open the detergent dispenser during the cycle as hot water may come out of it.

The only user-removable parts of the washer are the inlet hose(s), detergent dispenser and the pump filter. No other parts are designed to be removed by anyone other than a Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician.

When disposing of the washer, it is recommended that the door is removed to avoid children getting trapped inside, and that the electrical cable is cut off close to the washer.

Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances to the wash water. These substances give off vapours that could ignite or explode.

Do not wash articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances as they give off vapours that could ignite or explode.

Location
IMPORTANT!
Install the machine on a solid and level floor surface ensuring it has at least 20mm clearance on each side. The washer must not be installed on any textured floor coverings (eg carpet, rugs).
Note: this machine must not be installed and operated on a plinth.
Levelling the machine
It is IMPORTANT to level the machine to ensure good spin performance, and to minimise noise, vibrations and wear and tear on the washer.
Before positioning the machine in its final position, check
1
that the machine is level, front to back and side to side.
Manoeuvre the product into its final position (we suggest a
2
minimum clearance of 20mm each side).
Use a spirit level to check that the machine is correctly
3
level. If needed, pull the machine out. Loosen the lock nut using the spanner provided and wind the feet up or down to correctly level the machine.
Using the spanner provided, tighten the lock nuts against
4
the base of the machine to lock the feet in position.
Connecting to the water supply
Locking the feet
Inlet hose(s)
IMPORTANT!

New hose sets provided with the washer should be used to connect the washer to the water mains.

Old hose sets should not be re-used.

We recommend the inlet hose(s) are changed every 5 years. WARNING: Failure to do so may result in a flood and damage to property.
Connect the straight end(s) of the inlet hose(s) to the tap(s) and the elbow end(s)
1
Straight
(tap) end

to the corresponding machine inlet valve(s). If present, the hot valve is colour coded orange to make this easier. Tighten the inlet hose end(s) by hand until the hose seal just makes contact with the tap sealing face and then tighten a further half-turn. Make sure there are no kinks in the hose(s).
Turn the tap(s) on and check for leaks. Check for leaks again after 24hours.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
If you have an uncontrolled water heating source (eg a wet back or solar heating system) you should fit a Hot ‘N’ Safe Valve. This will ensure the hot water temperature remains within safe limits.
Hot ‘N’ Safe Valves available are:
RMC TVA 50HF
RMC TVA 75HFS
Adjustable between 35°C – 55°C
RMC TVA 50HP
For instantaneous gas hot water supply
Water supply requirements:

Inlet water pressure: Maximum 1MPa (150psi), Minimum 30kPa (4.5psi)

Inlet water flow rate: Minimum 6litres/minute
Cold supply only:
If you only have a cold water supply, the inlet valve cap (blanking cap) which came with your washer must be connected to the hot inlet valve (with the exception of WH8560J and WH7560J models). The cap prevents water leaking out of the hot valve. This appliance incorporates backflow protection complying with AS3500.1. No further backflow protection is required for connection to the water supply.
Note: your washer has an internal heater to heat water. If your model of washer has cold water connection only (WH8560J and WH7560J models), or if you do not connect a hot water inlet hose, your washer will automatically recognise there is no hot water supply and its internal heater will heat the cold water to the selected cycle temperature.
