Installing your machine
Follow these steps for trouble free installation:
1. Choose a location...
Where you install the machine will affect its performance.
●
●
●
●
●
For your safety and to comply with electrical
regulations, seek professional advice if you want to
install your machine in a bath or shower room.
Make sure that the electrical socket and water taps are
easily accessible. You should switch off the machine’s
electrical and water supplies when you are not using it.
Make sure that you allow enough space for the
machine. Select a space at least 600mm wide, 600mm
deep and 850mm high. Also leave enough space to
open the door fully so you can load and unload it easily.
Where possible the machine should be positioned on a
solid level floor to minimise vibration.
Take care when you move the machine not to rip any
floor coverings. There are wheels on the bottom rear of
the machine, so tilting it backwards a little is the easiest
way to move it. The weight of the machine may cause
indentations in some floor coverings.
WARNINGS:
● Do not plug
the machine in
and switch it
on at the mains
until the
installation is
completed.
● You may be
charged for a
service call if a
problem with
your machine
is caused by
incorrect
installation or
misuse.

water may
be very hot.
INSTALLING
YOUR MACHINE
● Do not remove the hooked end support from the GREY
drainage hose when using any of the drainage methods
detailed below. You may need to reposition it as required along
the drainage hose.
● For drainage into a standard work top sink, ensure the outlet
pipe has a minimum diameter of 32mm. If your sink is inset,
the front edge of the basin must be less than 75mm from the
front edge of your worktop, so that the drain hose will hook
securely into the sink. Unclip the drainage hose from the back
of the machine and hook over into the sink. Make sure that the
sink is free of any obstructions and that the sink plug can not
fall into the sink, preventing the water from draining away
freely. Pumped out water may be very hot.
We recommend one of the following drainage methods:
Standpipe
figure 1
1 Make sure that the standpipe has a
minimum diameter of 38mm.
2 Remove the drainage hose from the
clips on the back of the machine.

Before washing laundry we recommend that you do the
following:
● Pre-treat awkward stains with washable treatments.
Do not wash any items that have previously been treated
with solvents.
● Close zips, fasten belts, tie strings and close press studs to
prevent tangling.
● Empty all objects from pockets as they may damage
clothes and the machine.
● Limit the size of absorbent loads, for example towels to 3kg
(7lb) to give good washing and rinsing results.
● Place small items in a wash bag.
ATYPICALWASH

Auto half load saves you time and money when washing smaller loads. Water levels are
automatically adjusted to cater for the different loads.
Unbalanced load warning
Your machine has an inbuilt feature to prevent it spinning with an unbalanced load.
This will minimise vibration and prolong the life of the machine.
If a load is not evenly distributed, the machine will try to spread it around the drum.
The ‘Final Spin’ indicator light will flash at the end of the programme if the machine
does not spin. You can open the door, re-distribute the clothes , close the door and
spin them by using a fast or slow spin programme.

Harsh abrasive
cleaners should
not be used as
they can scratch
the surface.
A build-up of
soiling and water
hardness residue
may result in
water leaking
from the door.
Maintenance wash
Using too little detergent can cause a build up of grease, dirt
and hard water salts, which, over time may damage your
machine, your clothes and could cause the machine to smell.
We recommend you carry out a maintenance wash two or
three times a year to keep the machine and the outlet pipes
clean and free from a build up of these deposits.
Simply run programme ‘C’ without laundry, using the usual
amount of biological detergent for normal soiling.
NOTE: This will take approximately 2 hours 30 minutes to
complete.

Troubleshooting...
In the unlikely event that you have problems with your machine, the following guide
may help you to get your machine working correctly straight away. ..
The machine will not start...
● Close the door. Check that the machine
has power. Choose a programme and
press the ‘START/Hold To Reset’ button.
If after two seconds the ‘Door Locked’
indicator light is not lit, check to see:
i) If the machine is plugged in and
switched ‘ON’.
ii) If the socket is OK. Try another
appliance in the socket to check.
iii) If the fuse in the machine plug is
OK. If not, replace it, see ‘Connect
your machine to the electrical
supply’ (see section: INSTALLING
YOUR MACHINE).
The ‘Door Locked’ indicator is flashing...
● Shut the door firmly, until it clicks.
The ‘Door Locked’ indicator light
should now stay on.
The ‘Pre-wash’ progress indicator is
flashing...
● This means that the machine cannot fill.
Check that the water supply is turned on
and that the inlet hoses are not kinked.
TROUBLE
SHOOTING
The ‘Wash’ progress indicator is flashing...
● The wash dial has been moved since the
programme started. Move the wash dial
to the original programme.
The ‘Spin’ progress indicator is flashing...
● This means that there has been an
unbalanced load and the machine could
not spin:
Open the door, re-distribute the clothes,
close the door and select a spin only
programme.
The programme takes a long time...
● Some programmes do take a long time.
Things which can lengthen the
programme time include low
temperature and low pressure of the
incoming hot water supply, or low cold
water pressure.
The door will not open...
● Has the programme finished? Is the ‘End’
progress light lit? The door will not open
until the ‘Door Locked’ indicator light has
gone out. The ‘Door Locked’ indicator
light will go out about two minutes after
the programme has finished.
● There is still water in the machine.
Go through all the points in the next
section,‘The machine will not pump
out water...’
The machine will not pump out the
water...
● Make sure that there is no blockage in
the drain hose and that it is not
kinked.
● Is the drain hose installed correctly?
● If you have connected your machine to a
sink waste system, make sure that you
have cut out the membrane from the
under sink drainage system.
(see section: INSTALLING YOUR
MACHINE).
● Ensure that the drainage system,
standpipe or under sink connection is
free from any blockage.
- If any of the above are found to be
the cause of your problem you will
need to run the machine through a
spin only programme.
● If you have chosen ‘Rinse Hold’, the
light will flash until you press the
‘Rinse Hold’ button to continue the
programme.
The machine is leaking...
● Check the fill hoses have been
tightened at both ends? If not, tighten
them.
● Are the fill hoses tightly fitted yet still
leaking? If so, replace the rubber
washers.
● Is the standpipe or household drain
blocked? You will need to call a plumber
if you cannot clear the blockage.

Troubleshooting...
The programme takes a long time...
● Some programmes do take a long
time. Things which can lengthen the
programme time include low
temperature and low pressure of the
incoming hot water supply, or low cold
water pressure.
The machine makes a noise or vibrates
during a spin programme...
If the noise is very loud you should
check whether:
i) You have removed the transit bolts.
ii) You have removed the polystyrene
block.
iii)You have correctly adjusted the feet
to stabilize the machine.
iv)You have removed loose items such as
coins from pockets, as these can rattle
about inside the machine drum and
cause damage.
The laundry has not spun dry...
● Is the spin progress indicator flashing?
If so, this means that the machine did
not spin due to the load being
unbalanced during the spin.
Open the door, re-distribute the
clothes,close the door and choose a
spin only programme to try again.
● Did you use a short spin programme
on a non-synthetic load? If so, try
again using a faster spin programme.
● Did you adjust the variable spin dial
reducing the spin speed of the
selected programme? Select a faster
spin programme.
Steam is coming from the dispenser
drawer...
● We have designed the machine to
release steam from the dispenser
drawer during hot washes, so don’t
worry.
Not all of the detergent has been
flushed away...
● Check that your water supply taps are
turned on fully.
● Check the inlet hoses are not kinked.
● Is your hot water pressure low? If so
you may need a cold fill adaptor to
run your machine as cold fill only.
● Ensure the detergent flap is in its ‘up’
position when dispensing powder and
‘down’ for dispensing liquid.
Water collects in the detergent
dispenser compartment...
● Is the retaining flap in the down
position. Lift to allow the water to
drain away.
The flap keeps falling down...
● As you push the flap to the up
position you will feel some resistance,
increase the pressure and the flap will
move to its home position.
The clothes are hot at the end of the
programme...
● Check that the hoses are fitted
correctly: GREY to HOT
BLUE to COLD.
TROUBLE
SHOOTING
The dispenser drawer will not close
properly...
● Please check that the drawer is
properly aligned.
● Is the drawer clogged with detergent?
(see section: CLEANING &
MAINTENANCE).
Suds are coming from the dispenser
drawer...
● Have you used the correct low suds
automatic detergent? See ‘The
Dispenser’ - Choose a suitable
detergent.
● If you have used the wrong type of
detergent, flush out your machine by
choosing a rinse programme.
If the machine is still not working
contact Hotpoint Service, see the back
page.
Remember, you may be charged for a
service call if a problem with your
machine is caused by incorrect
installation or misuse.
