Unpacking
All transit bolts and packing must be removed
before using the appliance.
You are advised to keep all the packaging for re-use in
case the machine is to be transported again.
Using a spanner unscrew and remove the two rear
bottom screws. Slide out the two plastic pins.
Lay the machine gently on its back, making sure that the
hoses are not squashed.
Remove the polystyrene block from the bottom of the
machine and release the two plastic bags.
Very carefully slide out the left polythene bag, removing
it towards the right and then downwards.
Repeat the operation for the right polythene bag,
removing it towards the left and then upwards.
Carry out the bottom cover placed into the drum of your
appliance, lay its hook as the arrow «A» indicates and
push the top of the cover to seal it closed.
Important! 
You can find more detailed instructions regarding the
bottom cover assemblig in its relative bag.

Remove the polystyrene base. Set the machine upright
and unscrew the remaining rear screw. Slide out the
relevant pin.
Fill all the holes with the plastic plugs supplied with the
instruction booklet.
Positioning
Install the machine on a flat hard floor.
Make sure that air circulation around the machine is not
impeded by carpets, rugs etc. Check that the machine
does not touch the wall or other kitchen units.
Never place cardboard, wood or similar materials under
the machine to compensate for any unevenness in the
floor.
Your new washing machine has been designed to be
permanently plumbed in to your home’s water supply
and drainage system. However, if this is not possible, it
may be connected to a suitable existing tap with the
drain hose discharging into a sink.
The appliance has an inlet hose, with female 3/4” BSP
thread connector. If this connection is not compatible
with the plumbing of the existing installation, a variety
of connectors are available from good hardware stores
and plumbers merchants to suit most domestic
plumbing. Any alteration to your existing plumbing
must be carried out by a competent person, or qualified
plumber.
Installation on a Suspended Floor
Suspended wooden floors are particularly susceptible to
vibration. To help prevent vibration we recommend you
place a waterproof wood panel, at least 15 mm thick
under the appliance, secured to at least 2 floor beams
with screws. If possible install the appliance in one of
the corners of the room, where the floor is more stable.
