Connecting the Water discharge hose

Instead of emptying the water tank, you can connect the provided water discharge hose to the direct drainage for over a sink.
- 1. Locate the hose on the rear of the tumble dryer.
- 2. Pull out the hose.
- 3. Connect the end of the water discharge hose.Ensure the water discharge hose firmly inserted and is not bent or kinked.
If the water discharge hose is being connected to a stand-pipe type of waste pipe, ensure that the top of the drain hose is installed at a height between 60 — 80cm.
- 5. If this is the first time there has been a tumble dryer attached to the waste pipes, you may have to remove a blanking cap. This can either be:
- a blanking cap installed in between the spigot and the u-bend
- the spigot has been manufactured sealed and you will need to cut the blanking end off with a saw.
- or a simple cap/plug over the end of the pipe
Ensure that if the other drain hose connections are present and aren't being used there is a blanking cap in place to prevent any leaks.
If the water discharge hose is being connected to an existing waste pipe (e.g., under the sink), connect the drain hose by pushing it firmly onto the waste pipe.
If you do not have a waste pipe to connect the water discharge hose to, it can be placed over the edge of a sink or basin.
Caution: Ensure that the end of the drain hose does not become submerged under water and is well secured to the sink or basin to prevent it falling off when water is being drained.
- 8. The waste pipe should be a very tight fit on the spigot, there are usually two diameters on the spigot. If the first part of the spigot is too loose then you will need to cut the thin part off with a saw.
Run a short drying cycle (e.g., 10min) to check for any leaks.
If in doubt, contact a registered plumber to install the tumble dryer.
