Installation and connection instructions 1 Safety information concerning installation • This washing machine cannot be built-in. • Before using for the first time, check the appliance for damage sus- tained while it was being transported. Do not under any circumstanc- es connect an appliance that is damaged to the mains.
Installing the appliance Transporting the appliance Warning: The washing machine is very heavy. There is a risk of injury. Exercise care when lifting the appliance. • Do not lay the washing machine on its front nor on its right side (as seen from the front).
3. Remove both plastic caps sideways. Special spanner A and sealing caps B (2 units) and C (1 unit) come with the appliance. 4. Use special spanner A to remove screw D and the compression spring. 5. Turn sealing cap C upside down as shown in the illustration.
• If the location in which the appliance is to be installed is fitted with small-format tiles, put a rubber mat (available in the shops) under the appliance. If the appliance is to stand on a base: In order for the appliance to be se- cure on the base, fixing plates*) must be mounted, into which the appliance is inserted.
Electrical Connection Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried out by a qualified electrician or competent person. WARNING – THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED. The manufacturer declines any liability should these safety measures not be observed. Before switching on, make sure the electricity supply voltage is the same as that indicated on the appliance rating plate.
Permanent Connection In the case of a permanent connection it is necessary that you install a double pole switch between the appliance and the electricity supply (mains), with a minimum gap of 3mm between the switch contacts and of a type suitable for the required load in compliance with the current electrical regulations.
Water inlet A 1.35m long pressure hose is supplied with the appliance. If a longer inlet hose is required, only hoses from the manufacturer are to be used. Your local Service Force stocks hose kits of different lengths. Sealing rings are either inserted in the plastic nuts of the threaded hose fitting or are included as spare parts.
Water Drainage The appliance drain hose should hook into a standpipe, the hook in the drain hose is formed using the plastic “U-Piece“ supplied. The standpipe should have an internal diameter of approximately 38 mm (see dia- gram) thus ensuring there is an air break between the drain hose and standpipe.
Pumping heights of over 1 metre The washing machine’s drain pump is able to pump water to a height of 1metre, calculated from the surface on which the appliance is installed. Important! If pumping height is over 1 metre malfunctions and dam- age to the appliance may arise.
