Where to put the washing machine

Most people traditionally assign a device for washing in the bathroom.This is understandable - after all there are pipes with water, as well as easy to equip the drain.However, sometimes space in the bathroom is not enough, and then you have to decide on how to connect the washing machine in the kitchen.If there is no suitable area and entrance hall has impressive dimensions, you can try a custom option - equip the place for stiralki in the hallway.Closing her wall trim cabinet, you can turn the washing machine in the original and beautiful piece of furniture.

Washing machine arrived - begin to unpack and prepare to install

That bought finally assistant to wash the order delivered, and porters have a box in the apartment.Well, now you need to first of all remove the box.Now, remove the fasteners, which are fixed elements of the machine during its transportation, protecting the rotating parts from accidental damage.Fasteners represents bars, brackets and bolts.

brackets are located on the back and are intended not only to secure the power cord and the hose, but also give the necessary rigidity for transportation.The bars are placed between the housing unit and the tank, they can be easily removed if the machine slightly tilted forward.The bolts are at the front, holding drum.All these details should be packed after removing and storing - with outstanding service they need.

Keep in mind that after the bolts are unscrewed to transport the tank washing machine hangs on springs.Do not be scared - this is normal.Before connecting the device it is necessary not to forget the holes, which were previously the bolts, insert the plugs of plastic, reaching complete.

Removing the Baltic transport

Important: to remove all fastening parts conveying in any case do not turn the machine - it could end badly for her drum.

Summing water

addressing the issue, connect the washing machine to the water supply, keep in mind that for this there are several options that are common to which are two things: the water pressure in the pipes must be sufficient (normally at least one atmosphere) andthis water is required to be clean.Low pressure can be increased by placing before stiralka boost pump and water purification put the filter net.

can now consider options for summarizing the water to our machine.

Box using crimp sleeve

Taking a flexible hose with a diameter of three quarters of an inch, connect it to one side of the washing machine, and with another - to a single valve, which must be embedded in a water pipe with shrink sleeve (if the pipe metal).

Mounting crimp sleeve
Components crimp sleeve.

such coupling consists of two halves, put on the pipe and tighten the bolts and threaded outlet, which is screwed valve (better ball).For water flow in the pipe to drill a hole, put on straight through the clutch.

Connection washing machine to sewage

Liner clean water - this is only half the story.Now you have to decide what we do with dirty, soapy water left after washing.Of course, you have to think about connecting the washing machine to the sewer.This can also be done in different ways.

drain in the bathroom or toilet

easiest using a special tube called a "hook" to drain the dirty water directly into the toilet or in the bath.But it must comply with one condition: the top of the hose must be no less than sixty centimeters higher than the washing machine.To do this, she has a special attachment.

Drain siphoned

can do so: make draining wastewater stationary.To do this, you first need to buy a special trap, which has outlet intended for washing machines - is now in stores are commercially available.Under the rules of withdrawal must be above the siphon knee.If this rule is ignored, or connect a washing machine directly to the sewer, it may be sucked into the dirty water.The result - the appearance of her odor.

Well, we brought the water, drain organized now is to bring the power.Knowing how to properly connect the washing machine, you can avoid many unpleasant (and possibly tragic) consequences.For high voltage combined with water - terrible force.Therefore, caution and care again - this advice by applying the current in wet areas.

To protect his family, a mandatory ground switchboard.The bus grounding should not be thinner than three millimeters.Only use three-wire outlet.By the way, if the washing machine will stand in the kitchen, it is possible to include it in the socket, made for electric cooker.If you need to connect an extension cord, use only this that has a grounding prong.

The optimal solution would be to connect the washing machine separate wire leading from the meter.It put the circuit breaker.For these works better to invite an electrician.If the wire is not held separate, use a portable RCD - residual current device.

And: never connect the ground to a radiator, gas and water pipes.This is extremely dangerous!

Put the machine feet exactly

to newcomer assistant washed for a long time without breaking, and is not overloaded, a necessary condition is horizontally its top.In this case, the drum will be located without skewing, rotating smoothly without shaking while.The maximum deviation from the horizontal, which is permissible, is only two degrees.

To achieve the desired horizontal position, use the adjustment feet cars - all models this adjustment is provided.The result is checked using the level twisting feet as long as he will not be satisfactory.No rubber mats, pieces of linoleum and sticks, planted under the legs stiralki, should not be - an automatic machine installed directly on the floor, preferably on concrete.It, unlike wood, for example, provides excellent shock absorption.

Aligning machines
Leveling feet to level the machine.

conducts tests

again carefully examined all connections and connection, and just in case, consulting the manual, you can make a trial run.At the same time consistently perform all necessary operations and check if everything is happening properly.

First you have to fill the tank with water machines, timing with filling it up to the mark and checking the data indicated in the passport.If it is found that some of the compounds proceeds, it is necessary to drain the water and remove the leak.If all is well, you can start the machine.

about five minutes - seven water is heated to the desired temperature.During operation, the washing machine should not hear any outside noise - because modern devices operate almost silently.If something knocks or grinds, it indicates a fault.Having determined that everything is in order, further test how the squeezing device, and then try out the drain.This functional test assistant for washing can be considered complete.

We hope that after reading these tips, you can connect a washing machine on their own without much difficulty.After all, no special difficulties, this process does not involve.Good luck!
