Text excerpt from page 17 (click to view)
Packing used to protect internal parts of the washing machine during transport must be removed before the washing machine is put into service for the first time. Remove all packing from the washing machine. Tilt the washing machine sideways and then remove the packing under the motor, and straighten the washing machine.
If you want to keep your washing machine aligned with the adjacent furniture, you can cut the pipe support strip at the back of your washing machine. Leave the two side closers in place.
Put the washing machine on a flat hard floor in a well ventilated room. Make sure that your washing machine does not touch the wall or any other furniture in the room.
3.3. Moving your washing machine
Tilt the washing machine backwards, rotate it by a quarter of a turn on one of its corner to remove the transport base. If you want to move your washing machine, lift it onto its rollers by pulling the lever at the bottom of the washing machine all the way to the left. When you have put your washing machine into the required location, put the lever back into its initial position. Open the washing machine lid and remove the immobilization packing and plastic films. Close the lid.
Precise leveling will prevent vibrations, noise and movements of the washing machine during operation. Make the washing machine level by adjusting the leveling screw that is too short. Unscrew the stand and locking collar assembly (lift the washing machine if necessary).
Use a 10 mm spanner to remove the two screws and spacers at the back.
You can now see the openings that must be closed with the caches in the pack attached to the washing machine; do not forget to fold down the central capsule.
When the washing machine is stable, maintain the stand on the ground and turn the locking collar as far as posible.
3.5. Water inlet
Make sure that you have removed all these parts from your washing machine and keep them so that you can use them again if you need them for future transport. Please install the water inlet hose onto the back of your washing machine: - Insert the seal in the hole at the bottom of the back panel (fig. 1). - Screw on the bottom fitting of the water inlet hose as shown in fig. 2 and fig. 3.
