Otherwise the machine will make a lot of noise while in operation and allow adequate space of 2 to 3 inches with the rear wall or other furniture cabinets.

This is generally a connection to an under sink trap for the water to be taken away. Please also make sure that before connecting the drain hose from the machine that you need to ensure that any blanks or removable ends have been removed from the spigot.
The use of extensions hoses is not recommended – if you absolutely need to use it, then extensions must have the exact same diameter and it must be longer than 1.5m. If the drain hose is going into a standpipe, then make sure it doesn’t go any further than 6 inches into it.
