Connecting washing machine and dishwasher

Washing machines and dishwashers must be connected in accordance with the specific instructions for the electrical installations as well as water and sewer installations.

• A washing machine can only be installed if there are for this purpose meant special outlets in the apartment. A drip pan must be placed under the appliance.
• Water hose with connectors must be high pressure resistant. A ‘non-return’ valve between the supply hose on an appliance (washing machines and dishwashers) and the water supply must be fitted to prevent the water being tainted by the connecting rubber hose. Connecting a washing machine or a dishwasher to the water supply and drainage must be carried out by a professional firm (HVAC installer). The tenant is responsible for the installation costs.
• Save the receipt of the HVAC installer’s for a warranty, since incorrect connection may cause water damage. The tenant is responsible for leakage damage caused by an incorrectly connected appliance.
• While the washing machine is not in use, the filling tap must be closed.
• The dishwasher must be installed without damaging the kitchen furniture.
• Store the disassembled furniture in the apartment’s storage room. Before moving out the tenant must reinstall the disassembled furniture and taps, as well as plug the water points.
