Levelling the Machine

Remove bottom packer, bowl packer and accessories just before installing.

It is very IMPORTANT to level the machine correctly before use.

A spirit level is provided with the machine. Use this to level the machine by placing it in the locations indicated below (ensure the surfaces are clean). The machine is level when the bubble sits in the centre, within the two lines.

The washer is equipped with self-locking feet to ensure they do not move once you have levelled the machine. To adjust the feet, pull down then twist to move them up or down.

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

  1. Move the machine to its final position using the top corners to manoeuvre the product into place (don’t push on the centre front of the machine). We recommend a minimum clearance of 20 mm each side and 50 mm at the rear of the machine.
  1. With the lid closed, place the level at the centre, along the back of the lid (near the control panel). Pull the washer out and adjust the rear feet (wind down) until the machine is level side to side when in position.

  1. Open the lid. Place level on the flat surface on the left side, in line with the centre of the bowl. Adjust the front left foot (wind down) until the machine is level.

  1. Move the spirit level to the right side, in line with the centre of the bowl. Adjust the front right foot (wind down) until the machine is level, and does not rock. Note: there should be equal weight on both front feet so that neither can be turned by hand when the machine is in position.

  1. Place the level at the centre front of the topdeck, forward of the lid lock slot. Check the machine is level. Move the level around to all positions once more, checking the machine is level in all areas. Check that the machine does not rock in any direction.
  • Keep your spirit level for the next time you move or reposition your washer.

  • If moving or transporting your washer, ensure you tape the lid down beforehand.
