Indesit IWDE 7168 Washer/Dryer User Manual

Connecting the drain hose
Connect the drain
hose, without ben-
ding it, to a draining
duct or a wall drain
situated between 65
and 100 cm from
the floor;
The drain hose may
be connected to
an under-sink trap.
Before connecting
the drain hose from
the machine ensu-
re that any blanks
or removable ends
have been taken off
the spigot.
If it is place over
the edge of a basin
or sink be sure the
free end of the hose
should not be un-
! We advise against the use of hose exten-
sions; in case of absolute need, the exten-
sion must have the same diameter as the
original hose and must not exceed 150 cm in
Ensure that if the drain hose is pushed into a
standpipe, that the end does not go down more
than 15cms (6 inches). If the hose is pushed
down too far, this may cause the machine to self
-syphon ie. continuously empty as it is filling.
Electric connection
Before plugging the appliance into the mains
socket, make sure that:
• the socket is earthed and in compliance
with the applicable law;
• the socket is able to sustain the applian-
ce’s maximum power load indicated in the
Technical details table (see page 5);
• the supply voltage is included within the
values indicated on the Technical details
table (see page 5);
• the socket is compatible with the washing
machine’s plug. If this is not the case, repla-
ce the socket or the plug.
Your appliance is now supplied with a 13 amp
fused plug it can be plugged into a 13 amp
socket for immediate use. Before using the
appliance please read the instructions below.
Replacing the fuse:
When replacing a faulty fuse, a 13 amp ASTA
approved fuse to BS 1362 should always be
used, and the fuse cover re-fitted. If the fuse
cover is lost, the plug must not be used until a
replacement is obtained.
Replacement fuse covers:
If a replacement fuse cover is fitted, it must be
of the correct colour as indicated by the colou-
red marking or the colour that is embossed in
words on the base of the plug. Replacements
can be obtained directly from your nearest
Service Depot.
Removing the plug:
If your appliance has a non-rewireable moul-
ded plug and you should wish to re-route the
mains cable through partitions, units etc.,
please ensure that either:
the plug is replaced by a fused 13 ampere re-
wearable plug bearing the BSI mark of approval.
the mains cable is wired directly into a 13
amp cable outlet, controlled by a switch, (in
compliance with BS 5733) which is accessible
without moving the appliance.
Disposing of the plug:
Ensure that before disposing of the plug itself,
you make the pins unusable so that it cannot
be accidentally inserted into a socket.

tive plug:

loured in accordance with the following code:
