Before using the washing machine, care must be taken to install it. After the unit is unpacked, it is necessary to carefully examine it for possible damage. Do not be so sure that the machine is all right. If you find something, then immediately call the store, and do not even think about turning on the machine.

Important! Do not lose the rubber seal immediately after the fitting washer.

Connect the drain hose to the sewer or drain in the siphon of the sink, but only so that its end is not in the water. The top point of the drain must be fixed at a height of 60-100 cm, using a clamp on the rear wall of the machine. When connecting, it may be necessary to increase the length of the hose, this can be done, but the total length should not exceed 150 cm.

Now it remains to connect the machine to electricity, but before you do this:

  • check that the wiring matches the maximum load of the machine;
  • whether the voltage in the network meets the permissible norm;
  • whether the plug fits from the cord of the machine to your outlet, otherwise change the outlet, but do not use an adapter;
  • Is there grounding in the electrical network?
