Instruction for washing machine Indesit WISL 85

Indesit WISL 85 manualIn the washing machine Indesit WISL 85, the instruction, as well as in other machines, is very lengthy and contains a large amount of useful information for all occasions. This is good on the one hand, but on the other, the user is lost in this array of information, not being able to isolate the main thing. We decided to rewrite the instruction, thus creating its short and capacious version, leaving only the main thing. That's what we got.

Installation without errors

Only an expert can install the Indesit WISL 85 washing machine quickly and professionally. Preferably the master of an authorized service center. But if you carefully read the provisions of the instructions, then you have a chance to do it no worse, although more time will be spent.

Improper installation of the Indesit washing machine can cause damage, the elimination of which without the master will no longer be possible.

Let's start with the unpacking of the washing machine, external inspection and removal of shipping bolts. We will not describe it in detail, especially since we have already done this as part of the publication Manual for washing machine Indesit WISL 82. Let's install the washing machine. Immediately before installing the machine, you need to seriously prepare a place for it.

  1. Remodel the floor so that it becomes stronger and smoother, remove all soft coatings.
  2. Spread the surrounding interior items so that the machine stands up and there is still some clearance.
  3. Invite an electrician to make a new outlet for the washing machine. We take the case of the socket moisture resistant, a copper wire of 1,5 sq. mm, difavtomat per phase, grounding required.
  4. Make an insert in the water pipe and install a tee or install a similar tap directly between the inlet and the mixer.
  5. Install a siphon with the ability to connect the drain hose of the washing machine, or organize the drainage of the sewer pipe.

As soon as you manage to prepare everything, feel free to drag the Indesit WISL 85 washing machine into place and start connecting it. When moving the washer, be careful, because it weighs a lot, it is better to use someone else's help.

Remove hoses from special fasteners and straighten them. Avoid creases and excesses. We install rubber bands on the inlet hose, after which we fasten the hose on one side to the machine body and on the other to a tee tap.

The pressure in the water supply must be sufficient, otherwise the machine will not function.

We fasten the drain hose to the siphon and fix the connection with a hose clamp. Check the integrity of the power cord and plug. If everything is fine, you can connect the machine to the mains for the first time and check its operation.

Where to put the powder?

Turning on the washing machine, do not rush to press any buttons. First, get acquainted with the device of the powder receiver. If you load detergents correctly, the quality of the wash will increase markedly. The powder tray consists of four compartments.powder tray Indesit wisl 85

  • The first compartment is necessary for prewash. If you do not turn on the mode that provides for prewash, do not pour powder into compartment No. 1.
  • The second section is universal and very popular. In it, powder or gel is laid in most cases, because this is the compartment for the main wash.
  • The third compartment is not intended for powder, it is poured into an air conditioner.
  • The fourth compartment can be removed and put back. In most cases, it is not required, so it is removed and removed to the side. As soon as you need to start the bleaching mode, put this compartment in compartment No. 1, and then pour the bleach there.

There is regular bleach that is designed for resistant and delicate fabrics. The scope of the latter is somewhat wider.

Launch washing

Launching a wash is not surprising, but first you need to get acquainted with the control panel of the Indesit WISL 85 washing machine.In the figure below you see a schematic illustration of this panel. There are six buttons in the top row. The first button, if you count from right to left, is the power button. The second button is responsible for starting or resetting the wash program. The third and subsequent buttons are responsible for various additional functions that are activated by the user as necessary.

Right under the buttons are three handles. The manual for the indesit WISL 85 washing machine contains a description of the purpose of these handles.

  • The far right knob is the most important, it is responsible for the choice of washing modes.
  • The middle handle will help you choose the right water temperature.
  • The last knob is used to select the spin speed.

To the left of the buttons and knobs are indicators, but on the lid of the powder receiver there are icons that tell about the washing programs available in the arsenal of the indesit WISL 85 washing machine. Now we describe the starting order of our “home assistant”.

  1. We find the top row of buttons on the control panel and press the rightmost one, thereby turning on the washing machine.
  2. We sort the laundry and put it in the drum, not exceeding the maximum load value. It is best to load the machine halfway, no more, but no less.
  3. Next, we begin to twist the far right knob, choosing the desired washing program.
  4. The central knob selects the water temperature.
  5. Turn the leftmost knob to set the spin speed.
  6. Open the powder tray and add detergent with conditioner.
  7. Press the “start” button and start the wash.

Then the machine will do everything itself, we only need to wait for the result, and then hang out the laundry to dry. For the first time, it is better to drive away the laundry without laundry, so that the inside of the new machine is washed out of garbage and machine oil. Then you can wash as usual, without restrictions.

We look after "the house assistant"

wipe the cuff of the hatch after washingFor washing machine Indesit WISL 85 instructions, contains a clear recommendation regarding the care of "home assistant". Having finished washing, it is necessary that the machine dries inside thoroughly. If you can get rid of all damp internal surfaces from dampness by wiping them with a cloth, then the nozzles, inner walls and bottom of the tank will remain wet. Accordingly, if they stay wet too long, a fungus will start there and the machine will begin to exude an unpleasant odor.

In general, we act like this. If in the room where the machine is located high air humidity, then after washing it is necessary to open the hatch wide open, and generally pull out the powder receiver and put it to the side. If the humidity is moderate, just open the hatch. So the machine will dry out quite effectively. Sometimes clean the dust filter from dirt and check the flow filter at the intake valve screen about once a year, it can clog too.

If your Indesit WISL 85 washing machine already has an unpleasant odor and mold marks are visible inside, start the wash with a special anti-fungal cleaner for washing machines.

Well, all that we wanted to set out in the shortened instructions for the Indesit WISL 85 washer, we set out. As promised, we included in it the most basic provisions. If something remains unclear or the information presented seems incomplete to you, read the original instructions below. Good luck
