I'm installing a secondhand model ST3100 and it all seems pretty straightforward - the mains hot and cold come in and are distributed to the washing machine and/or the tub taps. This piping is all copper. However there are also three plastic hoses (with white braid inside) hanging down at the back - one from each of the tub taps and one from the faucet. I can't figure out what these are for and how to connect them. Perhaps they are redundant and need to be blanked off?

I have downloaded the manufacturers pdf's and tried calling them but have not got the answer. Would appreciate any advice.

If i remember correctly, 2 of them come from the hot and cold tub taps. (not the washing machine ones). And the 3rd one goes to the spout. If so then they all need to join together.

It's been a while since I put mine in, but I definitely used two of the braided white hoses to go from the tub's washing machine hot and cold taps to the washing machine inlets. Can have a look inside tomorrow if that would be helpful.

Thanks guys. I had rung Monaco, the NZ manufacturers/agents, and left a message. Later a guy called me back - he was a tech guy based in Oz. Turns out there is a part missing - "y-connector" - which connects the hot and cold tub taps to mix the water going to the spout. Have now ordered from Monaco so all good. It now seems obvious but not so much from their pdf's etc.

Is it just like a standard 20mm Y or T connector, or does it include non return valves? Possibly the NRVs are at the tap end of the hoses. Quite important if you have an unequal pressure system.

My understanding is that the fitting does contain valves.
