Before You Do Your First Wash


You owe it to yourself and your Fisher & Paykel WashSmart to have it installed correctly by an Authorized Service Agent.

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 3/4 ” (20 mm) extended) and hooked on to your standpipe or tub/sink?
  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 washer leveled correctly, with the feet extended and cabinet corners clear of the floor? Refer to pages 11 and 12.
  5. Have you performed the installation test cycle? Refer to page 13.
