Installation
GB
! Keep this instruction manual in a safe place for future
reference. Should the appliance be sold, transferred or
moved, make sure the instruction manual accompanies the
washer-dryer to inform the new owner as to its operation and
features.
!Read these instructions carefully: they contain vital information on installation, use and safety.
Unpacking and levelling
Unpacking
! This is a separate part of
the polystyrene base and
should be removed with
the base.
! IMPORTANT check
when unpacking your
machine.
1. Unpack the washer-dryer.
2. Check whether the washer-dryer has been damaged
during transport. If this is the case, do not install it and
contact your retailer.
3. Remove the 4 protective
screws and the rubber bush
with the respective spacer,
situated on the rear of the
appliance (see also the
installation leaflet).
4. Seal the gaps using the plastic plugs provided.
5. Keep all the parts: you will need them again if the
washer-dryer needs to be moved to another location.
!Packaging materials are not children’s toys.
Levelling
Your machine may make a considerable amount of noise if
the two front feet have not been adjusted correctly.
1. Install the washer-dryer
on a flat sturdy floor, without
resting it up against walls,
furniture cabinets or other.
2
2. If the floor is not perfectly level, compensate for any
unevenness by tightening or loosening the adjustable front
feet (see figure); the angle of inclination, measured according to the worktop, must not exceed 2°.
Levelling your appliance correctly will provide it with stability and avoid any vibrations, noise and shifting during
operation. If it is placed on a fitted or loose carpet, adjust
the feet in such a way as to allow enough room for ventilation beneath the washer-dryer.
Electric and water connections
Connecting the water inlet hose
1. Connect the supply pipe
by screwing it to a cold
water tap using a
3/4 gas threaded connection (see figure).
Before performing the connection, allow the water to
run freely until it is perfectly
clear.
2. Connect the other end of
the water inlet hose to the
washer-dryer,
screwing it onto the appliance’s cold water inlet,
situated on the top righthand side on the rear of the
appliance (see figure).
3. Make sure there are no kinks or bends in the hose.
! The water pressure at the tap must be within the values
indicated in the Technical details table (on the page 5).
! If the water inlet hose is not long enough, contact a specialist store or an authorised serviceman.
! Ensure that the supply taps are allowing water through.
Old taps may seize in the closed position and thus prevent water reaching the machine.
! Never use second-hand or old inlet hoses; use the products supplied with the machine.
Connecting the drain hose
Connect the drain hose,
without bending it, to a
draining duct or a wall drain
situated between 65 and
100 cm from the floor;
65 - 100 cm
Where it connects to
the waste water pipe
cut end off spigot or
remove the blanking cap
The drain hose may be
connected to an undersink trap. Before connecting the drain hose from
the machine ensure that
any blanks or removable
ends have been taken off
the spigot.
If it is placed over the edge
of a basin or sink be sure
the free end of the hose
should not be underwater.
! We advise against the use of hose extensions; in case of
absolute need, the extension must have the same diameter
as the original hose and must not exceed 150 cm in length.
Ensure that if the drain hose is pushed into a standpipe, that
the end does not go down more than 15cms (6 inches). If
the hose is pushed down too far, this may cause the machine to self -syphon ie. continuously empty as it is filling.
Electric connection
Before plugging the appliance into the mains socket, make
sure that:
• the socket is earthed and in compliance with the applicable law;
• the supply voltage is included within the values indica-
ted on the Technical Data Plate fixed on the machine.

How to run a wash cycle or a
drying cycle
GB
1. SWITCH THE MACHINE ON. Press the On/Off button
; the text POWER ON will appear on the display and the
START/PAUSE indicator light will flash slowly in a green colour.
2. LOAD THE LAUNDRY. Open the porthole door. Load the
laundry, making sure you do not exceed the maximum load
value indicated in the table of programmes on the following
page.
3. MEASURE OUT THE DETERGENT. Open the detergent
dispenser drawer and pour the detergent into the relevant
compartments as described in “Detergents and laundry”.
4. CLOSE THE DOOR.
5. SELECT THE WASH CYCLE. Press one of the WASH
CYCLE SELECTOR buttons to select the required wash
cycle; the name of the wash cycle will appear on the
display. A temperature and spin speed is set for each wash
cycle; these may be adjusted. The duration of the cycle will
appear on the display.
6. CUSTOMISE THE WASH CYCLE. Use the relevant buttons:
Modifying the temperature. The machine automatically
select the maximum temperature set for the selected
wash cycle; this values cannot therefore be increased. The
temperature can be decreased by pressing the
button,
until the cold wash “OFF” setting is reached. If this button
is pressed again, the maximum values are restored.
Setting a delayed start.
To set a delayed start for the selected programme, press
the corresponding button repeatedly until the required
delay period has been reached. When this option is
enabled, the
symbol lights up on the display. To remove
the delayed start function press the button until the text
“OFF” appears on the display.
Setting the drying cycle.
The desired drying cycle type may be set by pressing the
DRYING button
once or several times. Two options are
available:
A - Based on the how damp the clothes are once they
have been dried:
Iron: suitable for clothes which will need ironing afterwards.
the remaining dampness softens creases, making them
easier to remove.
Hanger: ideal for clothes which do not need to be dried fully.
Cupboard: suitable for laundry which can be put back in a
cupboard without being ironed.
Extra: suitable for garments which need to be dried
completely, such as sponges and bathrobes.
B - Based on a set time period: between 20 and 180 minutes.
To exclude the drying phase press the relevant button until
the text OFF appears on the display.
If your laundry load to be washed and dried is much greater
than the maximum stated load, perform the wash cycle, and
when the cycle is complete, divide the garments into groups
and put some of them back in the drum. At this point, follow
the instructions provided for a “Drying only” cycle. Repeat
this procedure for the remainder of the load. A cooling-down
period is always added to the end of each drying cycle.
Drying only
Use the cycle selector knob to select a drying cycle ( ) in
accordance with the type of fabric. The desired drying level or
time may also be set using the DRYING button
.
Selecting the cotton drying cycle through the programme
selector knob and pressing the “Eco” button activates an

Set the desired wash intensity.
Option
makes it possible to optimise washing based on the
level of soil in the fabrics and on desired wash cycle intensity.
Select the wash programme: the cycle will be automatically
set to “Normal” as optimised for garments with an average
level of soil (this setting is not applicable to the “Wool” cycle,
which is automatically set to “Delicate”).
For heavily-soiled garments press button
until the “Super
Wash” level is reached. This level ensures a high-performance
wash due to a larger quantity of water used in the initial phase
of the cycle and due to increased drum rotation. It is useful
when removing the most stubborn stains.
For lightly-soiled garments or a more delicate treatment of the
fabrics, press button “
” until the “Delicate” level is reached.
The cycle will reduce the drum rotation to ensure washing results
are perfect for delicate garments. If the current selection can be
neither set nor changed, the display will show “Not allowed”.
Set the rinse type.
Option
makes it possible to select the desired rinse type for
sensitive skin. Press the button once for the “Extra Rinse” level,
which makes it possible to select an additional rinse after the
standard cycle rinse and remove all traces of detergent. Press
the button again for the “Sensitive Skin” level, which makes
it possible to select two additional rinses to the standard cycle
rinses; it is recommended for very sensitive skin. Press the button
for the third time for the “Anti allergy Rinse” level, which makes
it possible to select three additional rinses to the standard cycle
rinses and remove major allergens such as pollen, mites, cat
and dog hair. Press the button again to go back to the “Normal
Rinse” rinse type. If the current adjustment can be neither set nor
changed, the display will show “Not allowed”.

Good washing results also depend on the correct dose of
detergent: adding too much detergent will not necessarily
result in a more efficient wash, and may in fact cause a
build up on the inside of your appliance and contribute to
environmental pollution.
! Do not use hand washing detergents because these
create too much foam.

garments having strasses or sequins.
To wash silk garments and curtains select the cycle
and set the “Delicate” level from option
.
We recommend turning the garments inside out before
washing and placing small items into the special bag
for washing delicates. Use liquid detergent on delicate
garments for best results.
When selecting an exclusively time-based drying function,
a drying cycle is performed at the end of the wash cycle
that is particularly delicate, thanks to light handling and
appropriate temperature control of the water jet.
The recommended durations are:
1 kg of synthetic garments --> 150 min
1 kg of synthetic and cotton garments --> 180 min
1 kg of cotton garments --> 180 min
The degree of dryness depends on the load and fabric
composition.
Wool: the wool wash cycle on this Hotpoint machine has
been tested and approved by The Woolmark Company
for washing wool garments labelled as hand washable
provided that the garments are washed according to the
instructions on the garment label and those issued by the
manufacturer of this washing machine. Hotpoint is the first
washing machine brand to be approved by The Woolmark
Company for Apparel Care- Platinum for its washing performance and consumption of energy and water (M1127)
Preparing the laundry
• Divide the laundry according to:
- the type of fabric/the symbol on the label
- the colours: separate coloured garments from whites.
• Empty all garment pockets and check the buttons.
• Do not exceed the listed values, which refer to the weight
of the laundry when dry:
Durable fabrics: max. 9 kg
Synthetic fabrics: max. 4 kg
Delicate fabrics: max. 2 kg
Wool: max. 2 kg
Silk: max. 2 kg
How much does your laundry weigh?
1 sheet 400-500 g
1 pillow case 150-200 g
1 tablecloth 400-500 g
1 bathrobe 900-1200 g
1 towel 150-250 g
Special wash cycles
Anti Stain : this programme is suitable to heavily-soiled
garments with resistant colours. It ensures a washing
class that is higher than the standard class (A class). When
10
Ready to Wear 45’: select programme
(2nd press of the
button) for washing and drying lightly soiled garments (Cotton and Synthetic) in a short time. This cycle may be used
to wash and dry a laundry load of up to 1 kg in just 45
minutes.
To achieve optimum results, use liquid detergent and pretreat cuffs, collars and stains.
Load balancing system
Before every spin cycle, to avoid excessive vibrations and
to distribute the load in a uniform manner, the drum rotates
continuously at a speed which is slightly greater than the
washing rotation speed. If, after several attempts, the load
is not balanced correctly, the machine spins at a reduced
spin speed. If the load is excessively unbalanced, the
washer-dryer performs the distribution process instead of
spinning. To encourage improved load distribution and balance, we recommend small and large garments are mixed
in the load.
Precautions and tips
! This washer-dryer was designed and constructed in
accordance with international safety regulations. The following information is provided for safety reasons and must
therefore be read carefully.
General safety
• This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental

• This appliance was designed for domestic use only.
• Do not touch the machine when barefoot or with wet or
damp hands or feet.
• Do not pull on the power supply cable when unplugging
the appliance from the electricity socket. Hold the plug
and pull.
• Do not touch the drained water as it may reach extremely high temperatures.
• Never force the porthole door. This could damage the safety
lock mechanism designed to prevent accidental opening.
• If the appliance breaks down, do not under any circumstances access the internal mechanisms in an attempt
to repair it yourself.
• Always keep children well away from the appliance while
it is operating.
• If it must be moved, proceed with the help of two or three people and handle it with the utmost care. Never try
to do this alone, because the appliance is very heavy.
• Before loading laundry into the washer dryer, make sure
the drum is empty.
• During the drying phase, the door tends to get quite hot.
• Do not use the appliance to dry clothes that have been washed with flammable solvents (e.g. trichlorethylene).
• Do not use the appliance to dry foam rubber or similar elastomers.
• Make sure that the water tap is turned on during the drying cycles.
Disposal
•Disposing of the packaging materials: observe local regulations so that the packaging may be re-used.
•The European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical
and Electronic Equipment, requires that old household
electrical appliances must not be disposed of in the normal
unsorted municipal waste stream. Old appliances must be
collected separately in order to optimise the recovery and
recycling of the materials they contain and reduce the impact on human health and the environment. The crossed
out “wheeled bin” symbol on the product reminds you of
your obligation, that when you dispose of the appliance it
must be separately collected. Consumers should contact
their local authority or retailer for information concerning the
correct disposal of their old appliance.
Opening the porthole door manually
In the event that it is not possible to open the porthole
door due to a powercut, and if you wish to remove the
laundry, proceed as follows:
1. remove the plug from the
electrical socket.
2. make sure the water level
inside the machine is lower
than the door opening; if it
is not, remove excess water
using the drain hose, collecting it in a bucket as indicated
in the figure.
20
3. using a screwdriver,
remove the cover panel on
the lower front part of the
washer-dryer (see figure).
4. pull outwards using the tab as indicated in the figure,
until the plastic tie-rod is freed from its stop position; pull
downwards and open the door at the same time.
5. reposition the panel, making sure the hooks are securely
in place before you push it onto the appliance.

Care and maintenance
GB
Cutting off the water and electricity
supplies
Caring for the door and drum of your
appliance
• Turn off the water tap after every wash cycle. This will limit
wear on the hydraulic system inside the washer-dryer and
help to prevent leaks.
• Always leave the porthole door ajar in order to prevent
unpleasant odours from forming.
• Unplug the washer-dryer when cleaning it and during all
maintenance work.
Cleaning the washer-dryer
• The outer parts and rubber components of the appliance can be cleaned using a soft cloth soaked in lukewarm
soapy water. Do not use solvents or abrasives.
• The washer-dryer has a “Auto Clean” programme for its
internal parts that must be run with no load in the drum.
For maximum performance you may want to use either
the detergent (i.e. a quantity 10% the quantity specified
for lightly-soiled garments) or special additives to clean the
washer-dryer. We recommend running a cleaning programme every 40 wash cycles.
To start the programme press buttons A and B simultaneously for 5 seconds (see figure).
The programme will start automatically and will last approximately 70 minutes. To stop the cycle press the START/
PAUSE button.

Cleaning the pump
The washer-dryer is fitted with a self-cleaning pump which
does not require any maintenance. Sometimes, small items
(such as coins or buttons) may fall into the pre-chamber
which protects the pump, situated in its bottom part.
! Make sure the wash cycle has finished and unplug the
appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. using a screwdriver,
remove the cover panel on
the lower front part of the
washer-dryer (see figure);
2. unscrew the lid by rotating it anti-clockwise (see
figure): a little water may
trickle out. This is perfectly
normal;
Cleaning the detergent dispenser drawer
Remove the dispenser by
raising it and pulling it out
(see figure).
Wash it under running water; this operation should be
repeated frequently.

3. clean the inside thoroughly;
4. screw the lid back on;
5. reposition the panel, making sure the hooks are securely
in place before you push it onto the appliance.
Checking the water inlet hose
Check the inlet hose at least once a year. If there are any
cracks, it should be replaced immediately: during the wash
cycles, water pressure is very strong and a cracked hose
could easily split open.
! Never use second-hand hoses.

Troubleshooting
Your washer-dryer could fail to work. Before contacting the Technical Assistance Centre (see “Assistance”), make sure that
the problem cannot be not solved easily using the following list.
GB
Problem:
Possible causes / Solutions:
The machine does not switch on.
• The appliance is not plugged into the socket fully, or not enough to make contact.
• There is no power to the socket, or the fuse has blown in the mains plug.
The wash cycle does not start.
• The door is not closed properly.
• The ON/OFF button has not been pressed.
• The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed.
• The water tap has not been turned on to allow water to flow into the machine.
• The ‘DELAY TIMER’ has been selected.
• The ‘CHILD LOCK’ is activated (see ‘The machine just ‘beeps’ when a programme or option is selected’ below).
The machine does not dry.
• Check the 2 sections above.
• The ‘DRY’ button has been pressed to exclude drying.
The clothes are too hot when the
drying cycle is finished.
• A cooling-down period is always added to the end of each drying cycle. If the
clothes appear too hot to handle leave the door open to allow to cool further
before removing from the machine.
The machine does not fill with water • The water inlet hose is kinked.
or ‘No Water, Check Supply’ is
• The water inlet hose is not connected to the water supply.
shown in the display window.
• The water pressure is too low.
• The water tap has not been turned on to allow water to flow into the machine.
• There is no water supply to the house.
• The inlet valve filter is blocked.
• The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed.
The machine continuously fills with
water and continually drains away
or Water left in the drum
or Stuck on wash.
• The top of the drain hose is too low - It must be fitted at a height between 65
and 100 cm from the floor (see “Installation”).
• The drain hose is connected incorrectly to the sink trap allowing water to run
into the machine, the drain hose must be positioned higher than the bottom of
the sink to prevent water flowing down the drain hose.
• The end of the drain hose has been pushed too far down the standpipe, the
‘U’ bracket should be fitted 100 mm from the end of the drain hose.
The machine does not drain or spin ‘START/PAUSE’ flashing orange.
• The Pump filter is blocked - (see Care & Maintenance).
• The drain hose is kinked.
• New Installation - The blanking cap or spigot has not been removed if connected under a sink.
• The drain hose or sink trap is blocked.
The wash programme takes too long. • Programme times will vary due to water pressure, the incoming water temperature
and if the wash load goes out of balance. This will increase the programme time accordingly (see ‘The machine wont spin properly’ below) - (Most Common Cause!).
The Display sticks at one ‘time to
end’ for more than 1 Minute or the
Display changes the estimated ‘Time
to End’ during the programme.
• The display time is for guidance only - it is not a precise time to finish
and may vary.

GB
The machine vibrates a lot during
the spin cycle.
• The feet have not been adjusted, enabling the machine to rock.
• New Installation - Either the Transit Bolts including the plastic spacers, or the
Polystyrene Packaging have not been removed when installing the machine.
• The machine is trapped between cabinets and/or walls.
• The load is in a slight out of balance condition and machine is spinning, but at a lower speed.
The machine is noisy.
• There will always be some motor, pump and drum noise during spin.
The machine wont spin properly.
• Out of Balance detected when attempting to go into a spin cycle - If this happens the machine will continue to try to repeat the distribution of the load required before the machine
will go into higher spin speeds - This will increase the programme time accordingly. This is
a safety feature to prevent damage. Out of Balance can be caused by washing a single
heavy item (eg duvet, quilt, etc). - Try the programme again using a different load.
The machine leaks from the
dispenser.
• The dispenser drawer is blocked with detergent and requires cleaning.
• The water pressure is too high and requires turning down - turn down the tap
on the water supply pipe slightly and try again.
• The machine is tilting forwards - It must be level when in its final position.
The machine leaks (other than
dispenser).
• The fill hose is loose, check both the cabinet and tap ends.
• The fill hose is tight but still leaks, if so replace the rubber washers, or the fill
hose is missing the rubber washer.
• The drain hose is not fixed in properly.
The machine is locked and an error code
appears on the display (eg F-01, F-..).
• Switch off the machine and unplug it, wait for approximately 1 minute and then switch it
back on again If the problem persists contact the Technical Assistance Service.
The machine smells.
• The machine requires a service wash. Run a 90 degree wash cycle with detergent and no laundry.
The machine door cannot be
opened.
• The door will not open until the door lock indicator light goes out shortly after
the program has finished.
• If there is no power to the machine you need to perform the manual unlocking
procedure (see Precautions & Tips).
Door Seal damaged at the bottom.
• The door seal has drainage holes at the bottom - This is normal.
The water level is too low when
the machine is washing.
• The water level is correct if it can be seen at the bottom of the door.
The word ‘DEMO ON’ appears intermittently in the display window
and the drum slowly turns.
• To exit, switch machine off, then press and hold ‘START/PAUSE’ and ‘ON/OFF’
buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds.
The machine just ‘beeps’ when a
programme or option is selected
(Child Lock Symbol is lit).
• Deactivate the Child Lock feature by pressing and holding in the ‘CHILD
LOCK’ button for 2 seconds.
There is too much foam.
• The detergent is not suitable for machine washing (it should display the text
‘for washing machines’ or ‘hand and machine wash’ or the like).
• Too much detergent was used - less detergent is required in soft water.
After completing the programme, or
before starting a programme, the machine has turned itself off (no lights).
• To comply with new energy saving regulations the machine is fitted with an
automatic standby system. Press ‘ON/OFF’ button for 3 seconds to activate
the machine, it can then either be switched off or a new programme selected.
General.
• Your washing machine contains sensors that monitor progress during the wash
cycle (eg: Water Levels, Temperatures, Out of Balance loads, Wash time/progress).
Normally, if your machine successfully completes the cycle, there is unlikely to
be anything wrong!
Remember, you will be charged for a service call for problems caused by incorrect installation, as listed above.
Not emptying contents from pockets may cause pump or drain blockages, or may damage the machine.
Do not wash items which do not have a wash label, or wash items that are not intended as machine washable.
