Electrical supply and grounding
WARNING: Never use an extension cord.
Use only the power cord that comes with your washing machine.
When preparing the installation, ensure that your power supply offers:
•An AC 220 - 240 V / 50 Hz fuse or circuit breaker
•An individual branch circuit dedicated to your washing machine
Your washing machine must be grounded. If your washing machine malfunctions or breaks down, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for the electric current.

CAUTION: Do not modify the plug provided with the washing machine. If it does not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Your washing machine will fill properly when your water pressure is between 50 kPa to 800 kPa. A water pressure less than 50 kPa may cause a water valve failure and not allow the water valve to shut off completely. Alternatively, the washing machine controls may not handle the pressure and cause the washing machine to turn off. (A fill- time limit has been built into the controls, designed to prevent overflows or flooding if an internal hose becomes loose.)
The water taps must be within 120 cm of the back of your washing machine for the provided water supply hoses to reach your washing machine.
Most plumbing supply stores sell water supply hoses of various lengths up to 305 cm long.
You can reduce the risk of leaks and water damage by:
•Making water taps easily accessible.
•Turning off water taps when the washing machine is not in use.
•Periodically checking the water supply hose fittings for leaks.
WARNING: Before using your washing machine for the first time, check all connections at the water valve and taps for leaks.
