Environmental protection/economy
tips
– Separate out the various waste materials of the packaging and take
them to the nearest collection point.
– Always fill the washer-dryer with the maximum load for the relevant
programme.
– Wash normally soiled laundry without a prewash.
– Instead of ic Cottons 90 °C, select the 0 Cottons Eco 60 °C
programme. This gives comparable results, but uses less energy.
– Measure the detergent according to the manufacturer's instructions
and in line with the local water hardness.
WEEE
)
This appliance is labelled in accordance with European Directive
2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment - WEEE.

Your new washer-dryer
Description of the
washer-dryer
The washer-dryer can be used
in 3 ways –> page 15:
– washing only
– drying only
– successive washing and drying.
The successive wash-dry programme automatically shifts from the wash
cycle to the dry cycle without further intervention.
Drying is achieved using the condensation principle. The condensate that
is produced during drying runs via the Drain hose into the Drain tank.
Caution: the water supply hose and water Drain hose must be correctly
connected during washing and drying –> page 26. The tap must be open.
Door
A safety device prevents the door from being opened during operation.
Before opening
Make sure that there is no water in the drum and that the drum is not
moving.
Emergency release
In the event of a power cut, the door can be released mechanically
–> page 21.

Detergents and Care Products
The detergent drawer is divided into three compartments
Detergent drawer
Compartment I : detergent for pre-wash.
Compartment II : detergent for main wash,
Compartment i : Liquid additives, such as starch or fabric softener.
Additives are automatically dispensed during the final rinse cycle.
I
II
– Do not exceed the maximum capacity, otherwise compartment i may
be emptied too early.
– Dilute viscous additives with water to prevent blockages.
i
Liquid detergent insert: this must be inserted before liquid detergents
are used.
To do this:
ˆ Pull out the detergent drawer as far as the stop.
ˆ Press on the zone labelled PUSH and take out the detergent drawer.

products
Risk of chemical burns
Take care when opening the detergent drawer. There may still be detergent residues in the drawer.
Select the correct dosage for the detergent according to:
– the size of the load,
– the instructions of the detergent manufacturer,
– how dirty the laundry is,
– the water hardness. You can find out about water hardness in your area
from your local waterworks.

Installation instructions
Safety information
The washer-dryer is very heavy. Take care when lifting it.
Do not operate the washer-dryer if it has any visible damage. If you are in
any doubt, please consult our after-sales service or your retailer.
Do not install the washer-dryer outdoors or in areas exposed to frost.
Frozen hoses can crack or burst. As a result, the washer-dryer could be
damaged.
Do not stand the washer-dryer upside down or on its side. Do not lift the
washer-dryer by protruding parts (e.g. door).
Do not place the washer-dryer behind a door or a sliding door which
could prevent the washer-dryer door from being opened. This will prevent
children from locking themselves in and putting their lives in danger.
Remove the transport braces and cross connectors and store in a safe
place.
In addition to the instructions provided in this document, special
regulations from the relevant water and electric utility companies may
apply.
If in doubt, have a technician connect the appliance.

Removing the transport
safety bolts
Unscrew all four screws
using the spanner
supplied.
Remove all 4 transport safety bolts
completely and take the mains cable out of
the retainers.
– Before using the appliance for the first
time, you must make sure that all
4 transport safety bolts have been
removed and kept safe for any
subsequent transport.
Insert the protective
covers.
Positioning and
levelling
Positioning
– If you need to transport the appliance at a
later date, always refit the transport safety
bolts to prevent damage to the washerdryer.
– Appliance stability is essential to ensure that the washer-dryer does not
“creep” during spin cycles.
– The installation area must be firm, clean and level.
– Parquet floors and soft floor coverings, e.g. carpets or foam-backed
floor coverings, are unsuitable.
Slide sheets make it easier to slide the washing machine into the
installation recess.
– Can be ordered from the after-sales service, spare part no. 66 1827.
– Moisten the slide sheets with a mixture of water and washing-up liquid
before sliding the washer-dryer into place. Do not use grease and/or
oil.
24
Intense noise, vibrations and “wandering” may be the result of incorrect
levelling.
Levelling
– All four appliance feet must stand firmly on the ground.
– The washer-dryer must not wobble.
– Check the levelness of the washer-dryer with a spirit level and correct
if necessary.
– The washer-dryer must not rest against the sides of the installation
recess.
– The lock nuts of the front appliance feet must be screwed tightly
against the housing.

Water connection
To prevent leaks or water damage, you must observe the instructions in
this section.
If in doubt, have a technician connect the appliance.
The water supply and Drain hoses can be routed to the left of right,
depending on installation conditions.
Do not use a used inlet hose. Only use the inlet hose supplied or one
which was purchased from an authorised specialist retailer.
Water supply
Do not allow the water supply hose to be:
– kinked or squashed,
– altered or cut (strength no longer guaranteed).
Note the water pressure in the mains supply:
The water pressure should be between 50-900 kPa (0.5-9 bar) (at least
8 litres of water flow out per minute when the tap is turned on).
If the water pressure is higher, a pressure reducing valve must be fitted.
Connect the cold-water supply hose (blue union nut) to the cold water tap
with ¾" pipe (3/4" = 26,4 mm) thread.
Only tighten plastic screw connections by hand.
Do not remove the filter from the supply hose.
After connecting the water supply hose:
– Turn the tap on fully.
– Check the connections for leaks.
Water Drainage
Drainage into a siphon
– Do not kink the Drain hose or pull it lengthways.
– Height difference between the installation surface and the Drain:
max. 90 cm, min. 50 cm.
Secure the connection with the 24-40 mm hose clamp (included with the
appliance).
26
Electrical connection
The washer-dryer must only be connected to an alternating current supply
via a properly installed earthed socket.
If a residual current circuit breaker is used, only use a type which displays
this symbol: ‚.
Only this symbol guarantees compliance with the currently applicable
regulations.
The mains voltage must match the voltage specifications on the washerdryer (rating plate).
The connected load and fuse required are shown on the rating plate.
Make sure that:

Do not use multiple plugs/adapters or extension cables.
Do not plug in or unplug the mains plug with wet hands.
Only pull the mains plug out by the plug itself.
Fitting the door hinges
to the washer-dryer
Once the washer-dryer has been installed in a kitchen unit, it can be
concealed with a door. If you wish to do this, you must fit the hinges
supplied to the washer-dryer.
