Installation

Electrical connection

Your washing machine is set to 220-240V and 50Hz.

The mains cord of your washing machine is equipped with a specific earthed plug. This plug should always be inserted to a earthed socket of 13 amps. The current value of the fuse should be 10 amps.

We do not take responsibility for any damage that occurs due to non earthed usage.

Operating your machine under low voltage will cause the life cycle of your machine to be reduced and its performance to be restricted.

Water

The washer should be connected to the water mains using new hose sets. Old hose sets should not be reused. In using only one water tap or in case of only one water inlet valve, connect the inlet hose to the cold water inlet valve.

Water inlet hose connection

Be careful not to confuse hot water inlet and cold water inlet.

Your machine has a single water (cold) inlet.

To prevent leakages on the connection joints, 1 seal is included in the hose packing, (Fit this seal on the end of the water inlet hose at the tap side.)

After all connections are completed, check for leakages around the connection joints by turning on your tap completely and seeing if any water escapes.

Be sure that the water inlet hoses are not folded, twisted, crushed or elongated by stretching.

Water drainage

Never forget to install drain hose before operating your washer.

The water drain hose should be mounted at a height of minimum 60 cm, maximum 100 cm from the ground.

The end of the water drain hose can be fitted directly to the drainage hole on the back side of the washer.

When installing the drain hose pipe, secure it tightly with a string.

Never attempt to extend the water drain hose by adding extra parts.

If the drain hose is too long, do not force it back into the washer. This will cause abnormal noise and damage to the product.
