Install a washing machine
Screw the washing machine’s connection hoses onto the connections at the back of the washing machine. If the hoses are marked, make sure you connect them to the hot and cold outlets accordingly.
Connect the hoses to the corresponding hot and cold taps or valves on the wall.
Turn them on and check for leaks. If they are leaking through the threads,
undo them, wind thread tape about 8 times around the thread and do them up again. (See Tapes and adhesives for thread tape)
Hook the outlet pipe (usually a wide, flexible pipe with a curved end) over
the edge of the tub or into the stand-up outlet pipe beside the machine.
Scoot the machine into place and check that it is level. If it is not, turn the adjustable feet at the front of the machine until it is level.
Plug the power lead into the socket.
