Water connection

Water inlet hose
Connect the appliance to a cold water sup-
Connect the inlet hose to a water tap with an
external BSP thread spout of 3/4".
Inlet water supply
• Cold water pressure: 800 kPa max - 50
kPa min.
• Water flow rate 10 L / minute min.
• If cold water pressure is in excess of 800
kPa, a pressure reducing valve should be
used. Check for leaks.
Caution! Always use new hoses when
you connect the appliance to the water
mains. Old hoses must not be used. The
water inlet hose must be examined at an
interval of twelve months for
deterioration and replaced if necessary.
The water pressure must be in the limits (refer
to 'Technical data'). Make sure that the local
water authority gives you the average mains
pressure in your area.
Make sure that there are no kinks in the water
inlet hose and that the water inlet hose is not
squashed or entangled.
Fit the hose nut correctly to prevent water
Caution! Do not connect the appliance
to new pipes or pipes that have been not
used for a long time. Let the water run
for some minutes, then connect the inlet
The water inlet hose is double-walled and
has an inner mains cable and a safety valve.
The water inlet hose is under pressure only
while the water is running. If there is a leak in
the water inlet hose, , the safety valve inter-
rupts the running water.
Be careful when you install the water inlet
• The mains cable is in the double-wal-
led inlet hose. Do not immerse the wa-
ter inlet hose or the safety valve in wa-
• Do not attempt to shorten the inlet
• If the water inlet hose or the safety
valve is damaged, immediately turn off
the power and remove the mains plug
from the mains socket.
• Only a qualified Service Engineer can
replace the water inlet hose with safe-
ty valve.
Dangerous voltage
In order to pass the safety valve through
the kitchen cabinets, an opening of at
least 45mm x 90mm is needed.
Water drain hose
Use the supplied hose clamp to connect the
water drain hose to the sink.
The highest point of the drain hose must be
no more than 60 cm from the floor and must
have a continuous fall to the plumbing con-
The drain hose can be lengthened using ad-
ditional lengths and connectors. These must
be purchased from Electrolux Spare Parts.
The extension length must not exceed 2 me-
The drain hose must be free of kinks and ob-
Remove the sink plug when the appliance
drains the water to prevent that the water
goes back into the appliance.
If you connect the water drain hose to a trap
spigot under the sink, remove the plastic
membrane. If you do not remove the mem-
brane, remaining food can cause a blockage
in the drain hose spigot
