Manual for washing machine Indesit WISL 83

Indesit WISL 83 manualThe Indesit WISL 83 washing machine is a rather old model among the machines of this brand. Some have been using it for more than 6 years, the age of individual Italian representatives reaches 12 years. Sooner or later, the operation of the equipment fails, the user begins to read the instructions, but the printed version may be without a Russian translation. Do not worry, this instruction has been translated and posted on the Web more than once. We suggest you familiarize yourself with it, most likely you will find what you need.

How to connect?

Most instructions for Indesit washing machines begin with a description of the unpacking and installation of the appliance. There is nothing difficult in this work, considering that everything is prepared for you, namely:

  • aligned installation location;
  • cold water is supplied or a splitter and a tap are installed on the cold water mixer;
  • a siphon is installed on the sink with a tap for draining waste water from the washer;

    To the knowledge! You can organize a drain directly into the bathroom or toilet, but this method is unsafe and not aesthetic.

  • a power outlet is grounded, grounded according to all safety regulations (a three-core cable with a cross-section of 1.5 sq. mm is used, there is a difavtomat).

After unpacking the washing machine and examining it, you need to remove the transport holding bolts from the back of the equipment and close the holes with plugs. Next, we put the machine closer to the installation site and begin to connect the hoses. The inlet hose is screwed by hand with fitting washers at one end to the water outlet, the other end to the machine. This is one of the easiest ways, but you can also connect to a faucet in the kitchen orto the mixer in the bathroom.

Arranging a drain should also not cause you problems. The nuance is to prevent the drainage hose from pulling and self-draining. To do this, you need to correctly fix the upper drain point, which is described in detail not so much in the instructions as on our website in the article How to connect the drain hose to the sewer.

With a properly installed outlet, the network connection is to insert the plug into the outlet. If there is no such outlet, forget about extension cords and adapters. Call an electrician who will lay the cable and do everything according to the requirements.

Machine description

We will not describe the entire design of the washing machine, it is important for the user to know only how the powder dispenser and control panel are arranged, and we will stop on them. The control panel of the Indesit WISL 83 washing machine is equipped with three selectors and six buttons. Selectors are intended (from left to right) for:

Safety and maintenance

Safe operation of the Indesit WISL 83 washing machine the instruction also does not pass by. If you violate at least one of the rules listed in it, the manufacturer is not responsible either for your health or for the safety of equipment and property. So what you should not forget about:

  1. The machine is a household appliance for home use, not a professional one.
  2. Disconnect appliances after washing.
  3. Manage and control the operation of the machine should be an adult.
  4. When working with equipment, make sure that your hands are dry, do not touch the body with wet hands.
  5. Do not pull out to distribute the powder during washing.
  6. Do not pull the door, trying to open it after washing, the lock will unlock after three minutes.
  7. Carry the machine together, it is very heavy.
  8. Check the drum before laying the laundry, there may be foreign objects in it.
  9. Do not overload the machine, this reduces the service life of parts, but washing too little is also not worth it.

In the event of a malfunction, make sure that you yourself cannot solve it. It is not uncommon for a filter or a strainer in front of the inlet hose to become clogged with debris, as well as an overload of the machine. All these problems are solved independently. If the internal components of the machine break down, it is best to contact a service center, especially if the machine is under warranty.
