Plumbing Tips

How to plumb in your washing machine

The washing machine must be level and all four feet should be in firm contact with the floor.
Each foot is adjustable but normally it is only necessary to adjust one of the front feet to achieve stability. Failure to make the washing machine level may affect stability and vibration. Use a spirit level sitting on top of the machine to check the level before use.

The drain hose (hooked pipe) is secured to the rear of the machine by support clips and may be routed to the right or left as required. The drain hose should be placed in a stand pipe with a minimum internal diameter of 38mm (1.5 inches)or it can be positioned over a sink. The height of stand pipe or sink should be between 60 and 100cm (24 and 40 inches). Care must be taken that the hose is not obstructed, twisted or that the end of it is not submerged in water. If the hose is connected with an airtight joint, provision should be made to prevent syphonage.
The hose having the white end fitting should be connected between the cold supply and the threaded connection adjacent to the letter C on the rear of the machine. Some machines also have a hot fill, in this case the hose having the red end fitting should be connected between the hot supply and the threaded connection adjacent to the letter H on the rear of the machine. Remember to insert a sealing washer at each connection
