Before you do your first wash

 You owe it to yourself and your washer to have your machine installed correctly. 

Before you start, it is a good idea to go through the following checklist: 
  1. Has the basepacker been removed? (Refer to 'Unpacking').
  2. Is the drain hose threaded through the ‘U bend‘ (with no more than 20 mm extended) and hooked into your standpipe? (Refer to 'Drain Hose').
  3. Is the hot hose connected to the Hot valve marked ‘H’? Is the cold hose connected to the Cold valve marked ‘C’? (Refer to 'Inlet Hoses'). 
  4. Is the machine correctly levelled, feet are extended and cabinet corners are clear of the floor? (Refer to 'Levelling instructions'). 
  5. Have you performed the installation test cycle? (Refer to 'Installation test cycle').
