Connect the water inlet hose to a cold water tap with a 3/4" gas threaded orifice, after having inserted the rugger sealing washer into the hose collar (fig.1). If the water connection is made onto new pipes or onto pipes which have not been used for a long time, it is advisable to run off a certain amount of water before connecting the machine. Place the curved end of the outled hose into a drain pipe having a height between 70 and 100 cm from floor level (fig.2) or secure it to a sink (fig.3). Make sure that the drain hose is firmly secured so that it will not slip out or fall down from its position. The water should drain freely and, consequently, the drain hose should not be choked or placed in such a way as to obstruct the normal water flow. If an extension hose is required, remember that it might cause a malfunction in the drain pump, particularly if the extension has a length in excess of 1 meter or if the diameter of the extension is smaller than the diameter of the original drain hose.
Before fitting the plug into the wall socket, check the following points : 1) The supply voltage of the domestic wiring system does not fluctuate by more that 10%, plus or minus, from 230 V. 2) The meter, the fuses, the supply line and the wall socket are suitable to carry the maximum load required by the machine (2,3 kW). Very important : The washing machine is provided with a feeding wire with earth connection: it must be connected to a plug like that is provided with a good earth connection. The wall plug must be easily accessible. The replacing of the power cord must only be realized by the After Sales Service in order to avoid any danger. The manufacturer declines any responsibility where the previous recommendations are not followed. 40
