Unpacking

To ensure the best performance from your new washer dryer please follow the instructions below.

 

Removing The Packaging

  1. Remove the outer packaging (including the polystyrene packer and plastic wrapping). All packaging must be removed prior to use. Ensure these materials are kept out of reach of children.
Asmall amount of water may be seen inside the packaging and inside the washer dryer. This is the result of factory testing and is normal.
  1. Tilt the product backwards and ‘walk’ it off the base one foot at a time. Not doing so may cause damage to your floor and washer dryer.
  2. Remove all packaging and accessories from inside the drum.

 

Removing The Transit Bolts

The clothes washer dryer is fitted with 4 transit bolts at the rear to prevent internal damage during transportation.

  • The 4 transit bolts MUST be removed prior to operation of the machine. Failure to remove these will result in damage to the product.
  • Ensure packaging materials are kept out of reach of children.
  • Please help protect the environment and dispose of the packaging from around the washer dryer in an environmentally friendly manner.

 

To Remove The Bolts:

  1. Use a spanner or socket to unscrew and remove all four transit bolts at the back of the washer dryer (A).
  2. Pull the black rubber grommets to remove the bolt, grommet and white plastic spacers from the machine. Keep the transit bolts in case they are required for future transit of the machine. Never transport the machine without the transit bolts properly fixed in place.
  3. Cover the bolt holes with the white plastic plugs which are attached to the machine and located near each hole (B). Push to clip into place.

Installation Location

  • The washer dryer must be installed in a well-ventilated, dust-free environment.
  • The washer dryer must not be installed on any textured floor coverings (eg carpet, rugs) to ensure that openings at the base of the machine are not obstructed.
  • Do not install the washer dryer behind a lockable door, sliding door, or behind a door where the hinge is on the opposite side to that of the washer dryer in such a way that the full opening of the door is inhibited. Ensure the washer dryer door can always be opened fully.
This washer dryer CANNOT BE INVERTED AND MOUNTED ON THE WALL.

The exact height of your washer dryer is dependent on how far the feet are extended from the base of the machine. The space where you install your washer dryer needs to be at least 40mm wider and 20mm deeper than its dimensions.
This machine must not be installed and operated on a plinth.

 

Levelling The Machine 

It is IMPORTANT to level the machine to ensure good spin performance, and to minimise noise, vibrations and wear and tear on the washer dryer.

  1. Before positioning the machine in its final position, check that the machine is level, front to back and side to side.
  2. Manoeuvre the product into its final position (we suggest a minimum clearance of 20mm each side).
  3. Use a spirit level to check that the machine is correctly level. The washer dryer comes with four adjustable feet, wind all four feet up or down until the dryer is correctly level. Place the spirit level on top of your washer dryer in the following places;
  • left to right,
  • back to front,
  • corner to corner.

The machine is considered level when the bubble sits in the centre of the two lines when placed flat on top of the machine.

  1. Using the spanner provided, tighten the lock nuts against the base of the machine to lock the feet in position.

Never unscrew the feet completely from their housings.

After levelling, the corners of the washer dryer cabinet should be clear of the floor and the machine must not rock in any direction.

Connecting to The Water Supply

Inlet Hose

  • A new hose is provided with the washer dryer and should be used to connect the washer dryer to the water mains.
  • Old hoses should not be re-used.
  • We recommend that the inlet hose be changed every 5 years.
Failure to do so may result in a flood and damage to property

Straight (tap) end                    Elbow (machine) end

Inlet hose ends

  1. Connect the straight end of the inlet hose to the cold tap and the elbow end to the machine inlet valve. Tighten the inlet hose end by hand until the hose seal just makes contact with the tap sealing face and then tighten a further half-turn. Make sure there are no kinks in the hose.
  2. Turn the tap on and check for leaks. Check for leaks again after 24 hours.
The cold water temperature should not exceed 35°C.

 

Water Supply Requirements:

  • Inlet water pressure: Maximum 1000kPa (150psi), Minimum 30kPa (4.5psi)
  • Inlet water flow rate: Minimum 6 litres/minute
An internal heater in the product will heat the cold water to the selected cycle temperature.

 

Draining

Drain hose placement in a stand pipe or tub

  1. To guide the drain hose over the tub or standpipe the hose guide must be fitted to the drain hose. The height of the standpipe or tub should be between 800 – 1200mm.
  2. Secure the hose guide so it cannot become dislodged from the standpipe or tub.
  • If the drain hose is placed on the ground or if the standpipe or tub is less than 800mm high, the machine will continuously drain while being filled (siphon).
  • Regularly check that your standpipe or tub is free from lint or other obstructions, which may affect how your machine works or may cause flooding.

 

Attaching Drain Hose To Spigot

  1. Guide drain hose through hose guide
  2. Secure hose guide to back wall of cupboard using a screw. The height of the drain hose should be between 500 – 800mm from ground level.
  3. Attach drain hose to spigot and secure using a hose clamp ensuring the blanking insert is cleared from spigot.
  4. Check for leaks.
  • The drain hose should be checked from time to time and replaced if any damage (eg wear, cuts, bulges, kinks, leaks, etc) is found. Do not bend the drain hose sharply, as this may cause it to split.
  • In multi-storey apartments or any upper floor, the machine should be installed on a floor equipped with a drain.
  • Draining must comply with local by-laws.

Electrical Connection

  1. This appliance must be connected to a 220V – 240V, 50Hz, sinusoidal, minimum 10A electrical supply.
  2. Uncoil the power cord, remove and discard the plastic pin cover and plug into a wall socket.
  3. Connect the appliance to an earthed outlet protected by a fuse of suitable capacity.
  • Check the power cord for damage and make sure it is not squashed or twisted when installing the washer.
  • Always remove the power cord from a socket by the plug, not by the cord.
  • If you are using an extension cord or a portable electrical outlet device (eg multi-socket outlet box), ensure that it is positioned so that it does not come into contact with water or moisture. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN DEATH OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK.
  • Do not touch or operate the machine with wet hands or with bare-feet.
  • A damaged power cord must be replaced by a Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician, in order to avoid a hazard. The appliance must not be operated until it is repaired, as there is a risk of electric shock.
  • Do not operate this machine if it has been damaged during transport. Contact your Fisher & Paykel dealer or Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician.

Do this before you wash or dry any items in your washer dryer. This is to check that your washer dryer is installed and functioning correctly prior to use.
  1. Turn your washer dryer on by pressing the ‘POWER’ button.
  2. Select the ‘Quick Wash 30’ cycle. Ensure the drum is empty and the door closed.
  3. Touch the Start_Pause Button.JPG button. The machine will start to fill.
  • Observe the machine for any problems (eg leaking from the hose, excess noise or vibrations).
  • The washer will beep and display any faults on the screen if there are any problems. Refer to ‘Before you call for Service’ section at the back of this book.
  1. Wait until you see water in the bottom of the drum.
  2. Touch Start_Pause Button.JPG to stop the cycle, then press ‘POWER’ to turn the machine off.
  3. Press ‘POWER’ again, select the ‘Spin’ cycle and touch Start_Pause Button.JPG.
  • Check the drain hose is firmly secured to the standpipe or tub, or spigot.
  • Observe that the machine pumps out the water, and spins. 
If there are any problems, you must address these before proceeding with normal use. The washer dryer will automatically turn off at the end of the cycle if there are no problems.
