Before you do your first wash

Before you start, it is a good idea to go through the following checklist:

  1. Has the base packer been removed?
  2. Is the drain hose threaded through the ‘U bend’ hose guide (with no more than 20 mm extended) and hooked into your standpipe?
  3. Is the hot hose connected to the Hot valve marked ‘H’?
    Is the cold hose connected to the Cold valve marked ‘C’?
  4. Is the machine correctly levelled, feet extended and cabinet corners clear of the floor? Refer to 'Installation Instructions'.
  5. Have you performed the installation test cycle? Refer to 'Installation Instructions'.
