Connect the Washing Machine Correctly

She has bought a new washing machine or moved? In the best case, you will have someone by your side who can connect the washing machine. Less good is if the device is just put on you and you now have to watch this part connected and also so that it works flawlessly. Even men don’t always know and can’t always do everything, so this home appliances blog is a great help when you’re facing this problem. First, you should be clear about where to go before you want to connect it. Not only the location is important if you want to connect a washing machine correctly. There are a few things to keep in mind, and there are a few small guidelines or help.

If you have moved into a new apartment, it is important that you look for three connectors that should be close to the machine:

  • Water supply
  • Water run-off
  • Electricity

If you have purchased a new device, you can connect the washing machine where your previous one has stood. These three connections are available there. The ideal place to connect a washing machine is usually the bathroom, the kitchen or if there is an extra possibility in a basement or economic area.

The place is perfect for you and to be able to connect your new washing machine; then it goes with the 2nd step.

Step 2 is that the washing machine should now be transported to this place for connection. However, before it is placed correctly, remove (for new equipment) the packaging and insulation material that has protected your new machine from transport damage. It is also very important that you look at the laundry drum. There is usually also a transport fuse as well as on the feet, which gives additional protection. The swords on the fuses can be quickly detached and removed. As a precaution, you can lift them if you are planning to move or sell the washing machine at a later date.

Once this has been done, you can now start by connecting the washing machine by looking to see if the drain hose and the water supply hose are present or not. 2 hoses are supplied. Both would have to be at the washing machine with one end fixed. (If this is not the case, then a complaint is appropriate.) One hose is longer and thinner than the other, has a screw sleeve at the end and serves as an inlet hose. One side of the hose should be attached to the machine, and the other side should be attached to an inlet tap (also called a machined valve). This is exactly what is at the loose end of the hose, this sleeve, which has to be screwed tightly with the machine tap.

Keep in mind that the hose must withstand some pressure after connecting the washing machine. Therefore, quite a slight screwing by hand NOT out. Use a water pump pliers or similar!

WIf all this sits and no longer wobbles, then you can take care of the drain ingress of the dirty water. Before you do this, you can now also push the almost fully connected washing machine into the correct position. In some apartments, a drain is mounted, which is designed to transport the water into the sewer system. It looks as if the pipe has not been laid completely and now, as if cut off, protrudes out of the floor or wall. That is correct. Insert the curved end of the drain hose into this “open pipe hole”. Finished? No! If this is not secured, it flies around your ears during the first wash or pumping out, and the room becomes your personal indoor pool. So while you connect your washing machine, make sure this can’t happen. Such a drain hose is relatively easy to secure. In any hardware store, you can buy clamps with which you can tightly screw the hose to the pipe. This fastening aid somehow bears a certain resemblance to these bells that are made around the roulades so that they do not rise in the pan. Now you’re jerking at your construction a few more times to make sure it can’t jump out, fall or rip.

as soon as the connections are in place, you can make the first attempt to get the machine up and running. To do this, plug the plug into a nearby power outlet and start a trial run. To do this, run a relatively short wash cycle (short program or quick wash). Meanwhile, check the entire connectors to ensure that they are tight and tightly mounted. If everything is dense and nowhere water leaks, then the connection of the washing machine is actually finished, and only the fine work comes into play. Connecting fine-tuning to the washing machine means that the device must be explored. If she is not in the scales, i.e. exactly horizontally, it can happen that she takes a walk through her kitchen, bathroom or the economic area while washing or rather spinning.

 Avoid this is part of the washing machine connection so that the feet are adapted to the conditions of the floor. For this purpose, the feet can be rotated on the machine to adjust them higher or deeper. A suitable tool can be found in the accessories of the delivery.

Here is a quick summary to be able to connect the washing machine correctly.


Choose a place where

Choose a place where

  1. A power outlet with extra protection
  2. A machine tap as a water supply
  3. A procedure option

Are located.

  1. Connect the drain hose to the washing machine.
  2. Connect the inlet hose to the washing machine.
  3. Connect the machine to the current.
  4. After connecting the washing machine, start a test run and pay attention to the tightness of the hoses and connections.
  5. The device can now be moved to its position
  6. After connecting the washing machine, the alignment and adaptation to the floor with the feet remains.

Now, when everything works, no water leaks, flashes come out of the socket, or the device bounces through the area, you can be absolutely proud of yourself. The washing machine is properly connected and will serve you well from now on. The settings of the respective programs, temperatures and slingshot gears can be found in the enclosed operating instructions.
