Washing machine pull switch
Is your washing machine in a wet room like the bathroom? Then you have to connect your washing machine to a pull switch. Would you like to know more about this switch? In this article you can read everything you need to know!
What is a pull switch
A pull switch is a switch that you can flip by pulling a cord. You can use them to turn lights on and off, or to plug in your washing machine. You are required to connect your washing machine to a pull switch if:
- The washing machine connection is in the bathroom;
- Or the group is not behind a 30ma earth leakage switch.
Does this not apply to your home? Then you can just plug in your new washing machine.
Usually there is already a pull switch in the bathroom. Do you still need to install a pull switch? Then it’s best to have it installed by an electrician. Electricity in the bathroom can be quite a dangerous thing. To avoid voiding your warranty, have a certified electrician install your pull switch. Of course, you can then place and connect your washer and dryer yourself.
