Can you please post some pictures on the tap connections for this model? I too blocked the same model from Croma and would like to understand how this has to be connected. Also, does the installer carry any small parts/connectors that may be required for connecting this to a tap?

I have the same machine, all you need is a male 3/4inch BSP thread outlet (the machine has the 3/4 inch female thread input). If you have a threaded 1/2 inch tap out like those for washing machines, then you will need a 1/2 inch to 3/4inch HEX nipple.

No idea about what the installer carries, since I installed it myself, as you can see from my username.

Good question. We fixed a tap from ESSESS with threading at the bottom. You cant see the threading at the bottom (in this pic) since that cap needs to be unscrewed. This was fixed by my plumber. It needs a separate exit plumbing for water to go out, so ensure this is dedicated. This tap will grip the 'washing machine like nozzle fixture (which I bought separately, and not carried by the installer). Electrical-wise we had the one for washing machine, that was 15 amps, so it was suggested that if both run together there will be overload and a separate 15A box was fixed.

Last week we were looking to replace our Preethi Mixer Grinder and had shortlisted the Ultra (Elgi) 750 watt models (the metallic range is awesome but didn't want to spend 9k on those models!). Had zeroed in on the Ultra Stealth model, plastic body, 3 metal jars and priced ~5k). First checked at local stores and found prices were less than online ones, but found that Ultra charges Rs.250 for every service complaint registered during warranty since they do a home visit to fix the issue. The other problem was their mixers are in low supply due to lower demand/sales.
Looked at Prestige Delight 750 watt with 3 jars. MRP 5200 but was available at a discounted price of Rs.3100. Initial experience is very good as per wifey

Just saw your post, hence the delayed response.
During the peak of lockdown, without domestic help at home, we were considering buying the Dyson V11 and reached out to Mod @Vid6639 who has been using them for couple of years or more. He said the V10 is actually value for money compared to the V11.

However, due to delayed import shipments the dyson vacs may not be immediately available. You can order online on their website.

I've delayed my purchase decision indefinitely since there is no pressing need at the moment.

I wouldn't recommend Samsung as my brother in laws conked off within 3.5 years. The convertible has complex electronics with movable solenoid flaps to regulate cooling.

3 weeks back I bought 500 Ltr whirlpool which is much better than Samsung. New one replaced my old 14 years old whirlpool fridge.
My suggestion would be for whirlpool

I replaced my normal Faucet with Angle Valve. Readers must be aware of these being randomly used to connect Water Heaters, Sinks etc.
Further, used a Flexible Connector. Now I had the choice of cutting of the other end of this Flexible Connector and that of the W/Machine and use a straight connector, tightened with Jubilee Clamps. But I found another Connector, which helped me without much hassle.

As soon as I reached home I clicked the actual set up. There is a small variation. Now, there is a pre-filter and softener (Mom procured from another technician). Then the LG machine has it's own softener (comes with the machine). But yeah, that's a lot of plugs there. But this machine is fantastic (could be the steam cleaning), better than the Bosch we had. 5 year warranty was purchased from LG paying 7K extra since there are a lot of moving parts (for peace of mind)

Is that Arrow Sign on the Pre-Filter a Logo or indicative of Water flow direction ?

I enlarged the picture and found it with instructions as "Flow Direction"and appears to be heading into Faucet. I agree it is deceptive and installed in a manner that the inscription is readable. Do I need to say more ?

I hope I have not blown that Peace of Mind you were looking for

With lock down almost all dishwashers (esp Bosch 12 place setting that I'm looking for) have got sold out both in physical stores and through online platforms. The only one known brand available for delivery through Flipkart to my area is BPL dishwasher. Any users here in this forum and any review on it? Flipkart reviews are decent. I'm afraid about the service support for it in future. It costs less than Bosch 12 place setting too. I don't want to spend 50K plus for LG machine. Suggestions from members will help.

Finally went ahead with 'Elica'.

Not satisfied with 2 Nos. of incandescent Bulbs of 40W emitting age old Yellow Light passing through partially ground glass, I installed a 18-20W LED light 24" long (supposed to be, but an inch shorter). Light hitting the Face / Eyes is bothersome and not advisable. So affixed Aluminium Tape on the Front Side. Unscrewed and removed the original Bulbs. It is not firmly fixed but just sandwiched tightly between the two cupboards on its sides.
External Switch is on Right Corner above Light. I could have hooked it to the Built-in Switch of the Chimney also (as I had done earlier too) but did not want to tamper with the Warranty issue. It is presently connected in parallel to the Chimney Power supply.

Ample Light - All White

Today most of the appliances are imported. Some companies that have established presence in manufacturing and service (Kaff, Hindware, Bosch etc) can give you long term service backup. Unfortunately BPL does not have either commitment or the service network to maintain your appliance beyond a couple of years. So I would be wary of getting any major appliance from BPL.

In late 1990 we had bought BPL Sanyo cooking range. It was the best available and was fantastic. The only problem was that after a few years BPL stopped that line hence there was no service and no spare parts. When the parts started failing, I repaired them as best as I could, but after 20 years when the major sub assemblies developed fault we had to replace it.

NOTE both our Faff cooking range and Hindware chimney are imported from Italy. But as both the companies have a large service network and stock parts long term service will not be a problem.

Thanks Sebring. All my appliances at home are from LG and i usually opt for the extended warranty even though I haven't experienced premature failure of appliances.

I purchased a threaded washing machine adapter from Amazon (similar to this) so that I can fit the hose directly to the tap.

Please note that the well established manufacturers / International Brands have mostly shifted their manufacturing hub to China or other South Asian Countries and the Packing may bear just the name of the Country where their Head Office is located. Not necessarily the country of manufacture. The packing may have print in various International Languages, as is even with most of the Indian Products too.
The Picture you posted does read "KAFF ITALY". Does the Machine anywhere bear the Stamp as 'Made in Italy' ? Yet, sorry to say, the Packing (Wooden Casing) does not look like a European work or maybe I am Wrong.
