Adjust the feet (picture 5, 6)
Install the washing machine on a level surface, near
to electrical, water and drain connections.
If the floor is uneven, adjust the feet (do not insert
pieces of wood, cardboard etc. under the feet):
1. Screw out the washing machine´s feet by hand
with 2-3 clockwise turns and then slacken the
locknut by wrench.
2. Adjust the height of the feet by hand.
3. Retighten the locknut by turning it anti-clockwise
towards the washing machine's bottom.
Make sure that the feet are resting correctly on the
floor and that the washing machine is perfectly
level and stable (use a spirit level).
The washing machine can be installed in an area 40
cm wide and 63 cm deep.
Note: if you install the machine on thick carpet, adjust
the feet to ensure that there is sufficient space under
the machine for the air to circulate.

1. Carefully screw the water inlet hose to the valve
on the rear side of the washing machine (A); screw
the other end of the hose to the tap by hand.
2. Make sure there are no kinks in the hose.
3. Check water-tightness of tap and washing machine
connections by turning the tap completely on.

length of pressure resistant hose (1000 kPa min,
EN 61770 approved type).

Connect the water drain hose (picture 9)
Unhook the drain hose from the left clip, see arrow

nection, see arrow "B" on picture. Otherwise, there
is the risk of leakage and of scalding with hot water.
Firmly connect the drain hose to the siphon or another
outlet for drain water.
If you need to add an extension, use a flexible hose
of the same size and secure the unions with screw-on
hose clips.
Maximum overall drain hose length: 2.50 m.
Maximum drain height: 100 cm.
Minimum drain height: 55 cm.
Make sure there are no kinks in the drain hose and
