Features of the installation
Ideally, both devices should be installed next to the sink, since the proximity of communications depends on the operation of the equipment. If possible, put the washer and dishwasher on the sides of the sink.
Experts recommend that if possible, do not extend the filling and drain hoses. Over time, this leads to wear of the pump. It operates in an enhanced mode, since the range of the bay or the drain is increased. In addition, the risk of leakage increases.
If you just got the equipment home, remove the cardboard package. Check that the case is intact, free of damage and scratches. It is important not to forget to remove the transport bolts from the stiralk. They are mounted on the rear panel to immobilize the drum and other elements. So they are not damaged during transportation.
You can put the dishwasher on a washing machine if you pick up a compact PMM model. Do not forget that the technique for washing vibrates strongly, so you need to properly strengthen the instruments in place.
Tools & Parts
First of all, it is necessary to organize communications that are suitable for simultaneous connection of devices. To do this you will need:
- brass or bronze tee (they are more reliable); it is advisable to select a tee with a shut-off valve;
- a siphon for two or three bends;
- two flow-through filters;
- for the extension, new hoses and extension pipes will be needed;
- Voltage regulator;
- a bronze tap-adapter;
Now you can start to connect.
Correct connection of technology
The correct connection sequence provides for: drainage, water supply, electricity. But if your network is not prepared at all, then first of all the posting is organized:
- A channel is prepared in the wall, where a three-core copper wire is laid.
- A moisture resistant socket with grounding is installed. It is connected via a voltage regulator. This applies to both stylalki and dishwashers.
To entrust such work is better than a professional electrician.
Organization of plums
Connecting the technique together to a single sink will be easier if the dishwasher is located above the washing machine (AGR). All you need to do is:
- Place a new siphon under the sink in two pieces.
- Connect the hose of PMM to one hose, to the other hose of SMA.
- Clamp the connections. Otherwise, a strong pressure will lead to the breakage of the hose and the leakage of water to the floor.
Be sure to follow the rules for plugging in. The hose should be at least 50 cm from the floor.
Connect the machines directly to the water pipe or through the sink. Both washing machines and dishwashers can be connected to hot water. But for this, special hoses must be included in the kit, which can withstand elevated temperatures.
It is not recommended to connect the equipment with a hot water pipe yourself, unless it is provided by the manufacturer. It may be dangerous. Hot water is periodically turned off, before it is taken into the car, it still has to be mixed with cold water.
- Shut off the water supply.
- Disconnect the mixer hose from the water pipe.
- On the branch pipe connect the bronze tap-adapter to the four pins.
- Now connect the mixer to one terminal, and to the other two flow valves with a shut-off valve. Each of them is connected with a hose of a washing machine and a dishwasher. This is done in order to shut off the water supply could be separately to each technique.
- Seal the connections with a tape tape.
Another option is as follows:
- To the tap of the cold water pipe, connect the tap-tee.
- Connect the ends of the filling hoses PMM and SMA to the taps of the tee.
- Fix the joints with a ribbon, wrapping it on the thread 10-15 times.
Then, the other ends of the hoses lead to the outlets of the body and tighten the nut.
It remains to connect the devices to the network and you can perform a trial run. It is advisable to turn both devices on simultaneously to check the quality of the connections and the correct connection..
How to properly start the first dishwasher, read here. The tray of the washing machine is filled with powder, the compartment of the dishwasher dispenser is detergent. Pour salt in a special tank. Install long programs at high temperature. What you need to check:
- strength of hose connections;
- heater operation;
- water intake;
Having mastered the work with their own hands, it is twice as pleasant to operate machinery. The video will help you make the connection correctly:
