Indesit IWSC 5105 manualIndesit washing machines are one of the most inexpensive machines on the Russian market, for example, the Indesit IWSC 5105 model. At first glance, it seems that it is easy to operate, but before turning on the new appliance, it is better to read the instructions. We offer a short version of the instruction manual.

How to connect?

After unpacking the washing machine, do not rush to plug it into the network and connect the hoses. After delivery, the transportation bolts must be unscrewed from the machine, due to which the moving parts were fixed. These bolts are on the back side. Only after that it is possible to put the car in a previously prepared place, according to the requirements:

  • leveled and reinforced floor;
  • lack of carpeting, as well as moisture-resistant coatings;

    It is preferable to install the machine on a tiled or concrete floor, you can put the equipment on a wooden floor, but only reinforced.

  • the presence within 1-1.2 m of water supply, sewage and an electrical outlet;
  • there should be enough space for the machine so that the back and side walls do not touch objects, and the hatch opens freely.

Connecting the washing machine to the water supply will not take long if you have installed it in advancetee crane or a separately connected water pipe. It remains only to fasten one end of the inlet hose to the tee tap to the thread ¾, remembering to put the sealing ring. The second curved end is screwed to the machine itself. No need to stretch the hose or extend it, in this case you need to purchase a longer hose.

The discharge of waste water can be arranged through a siphon or through the bathroom, securing the end of the drain hose to the edge with a special latch. However, draining water through a siphon will be more correct and safer. And for this, there must be a branch in the siphon, on which you can fix the drain hose with a hose clamp.

The upper discharge point is fixed at a distance of not less than 65 cm and not more than 100 cm from the floor to avoid self-draining.

As for the connection to electricity, a number of safety standards must be observed. It is better to invite a master who brings a wire with a cross section of at least 1.5 square meters. mm and install a moisture resistant outlet. For the Indesit IWSC 5105 washing machine, the instructions do not describe this process in detail, but if you're interested, read the article Connecting the washing machine to electricity.
