What is a pull switch?
A pull switch is a switch that you can flip by pulling a cord. You can use them to switch the light on and off or to connect your washing machine. You are required to connect your washing machine to a pull switch if:
- The washing machine is connected in the bathroom
- Or if the group is not behind a 30ma earth fault.
Does this not apply to your home? Then you can just plug in your new washing machine.< /p>
Mostly there is already a pull switch in the bathroom. Do you still need to install a pull switch? If so, it is best to have an electrician install it. Electricity in the bathroom can be quite a dangerous thing. To avoid voiding your guarantee, you should have your pull switch installed by a qualified electrician. Of course, you can then place and connect your washing machine and tumble dryer yourself.
