Any electrical and/or plumbing work required to install this appliance should be carried out by a qualified electrician and/or plumber or competent person.
Water connection Fitting under a counter (kitchen worktop or sink) By removing the machine's worktop, you can install it under a close fitting sink unit or a pre-existing top, providing the dimensions of the recess correspond to those shown in the picture.
Water connection With a hot water supply you can have a significant reduction of energy consumption. This however, depends on how the hot water is produced. (We suggest alternative sources of energy that are more environmentally friendly as e.g. solar or photovoltaic panels and aeolian).
Water connection WARNING! Warning! Dangerous voltage. Water outlet hose connection The end of the drain hose can be connected in the following ways: 1. To the sink outlet spigot, securing it to the underside of the work surface. This will prevent waste water from the sink running into the machine.
Electrical connection To avoid water leakage after installation make sure that the water couplings are tight. Electrical connection WARNING! Safety standards require the appliance to be earthed. Prior to using the appliance for the first time, ensure that the rated voltage and type of supply on the rating plate match that of the supply where the appliance is to be installed.
