Remove the polystyrene base...
Important check when unpacking your machine:
This is part of the polystyrene base and should
have stayed intact when you remove the base.
INSTALLING
YOUR MACHINE
If it has broken off and is still in the machine....
remove it, carefully lay the machine on its side
onto the polystyrene top cap and then remove
the polystyrene block.
Note: You will need a second person to help you lower and raise the machine.
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 will be
charged for a
service call if a
problem with
your machine
is caused by
incorrect
installation or
misuse.

WARNINGS:
● Take care
when using
the sink
drainage
system. The
discharge
water may be
very hot.
● Do not
position the
standpipe
near an
electrical
socket.
INSTALLING
YOUR MACHINE
● Take care when you remove the drain hose from the clips on
the back of the machine. All machines are tested with water
before they leave the factory so a small amount of water may
still be in the hose.
● 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
figure 1
methods:
Standpipe
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.
3 Make sure that the top of the
500 mm
standpipe is positioned at least
500mm from the floor (see figure1).
Use the plumbing indicator line label
on the back of the machine as a
guide.

features and is easy to use.
Washcare tips...
● Your machine can wash a maximum load of 6kg (cotton).
● Do not overload the machine (maximum load 6kg).
In addition to reducing the quality of the wash, this may
also damage your laundry and the machine.
● Do not use the machine if the item to be washed does not
have a wash label.
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.

Wash programmes
To select a programme to suit your individual requirements use the following series of
tables, explaining the wash programme buttons and programme details.
The programmes have been listed by Fabric Type.
The programme times ‘Time to End’...
For each wash programme and option(s) selected the machine automatically
calculates the estimated programme length ‘Time to End’. This is displayed in hours
and minutes shortly after the wash programme temperature has been displayed.
The ‘Time to End’ will then remain lit throughout the wash programme and counts
down to the end of the programme.
PROGRAMMES
& OPTIONS
Note: These estimated programme times are dependant on the temperature and
pressure of the incoming water supply, the option(s) selected and the load being
washed. They may, therefore change during the fill stages of each programme to take
into account the extra heating or filling time required.
To review the current wash programme during the wash cycle...
This feature allows you to check the running wash programme:
●
To view the temperature of the selected programme - Press the ‘Variable
Temperature’ button once.
●
To view the spin speed of the selected programme - Press the ‘Variable
Spin Speed’ button once.
After a few seconds the display window will return to the ‘Time to End’ showing the
remaining programme length.

Auto half load
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 excessive vibration and prolong the life of the machine.
Before each spin the machine ‘senses’ the load within the drum and if the machine
considers the load to be unbalanced, it will not automatically spin. Instead the
machine will try to redistribute the load to achieve balance by tumbling backwards
and forwards. If it is unable to balance the load after the sixth attempt the machine
will abort the spin process.
If this safety feature is encountered you can spin the load, after first opening the door,
redistributing the load and reselecting a fast or slow spin programme. In the case of
small loads or single items you may try adding some extra items of a comparable size
to help balance the load.

CLEANING &
MAINTENANCE
Maintenance wash
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.
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 a 95˚ White Cotton programme without laundry,
using the usual amount of biological detergent for normal
soiling.
NOTE: This will take approximately 2 hours 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/CANCEL’ button. Check
to see if a ‘Keyhole’ symbol is flashing in
the display window, if so, see below.
If it is not, check to see:
i) If ‘Time Delay’ has been selected.
ii) The machine is plugged in and is
switched ‘On’.
iii) If the socket is OK. Try another
appliance in the socket to check.
iv) 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).
v) If ‘Child Lock’ is activated (see below).
‘Door’ is flashing in the display window...
● Shut the door firmly, until it clicks.
The symbol should now go out.
A ‘Tap’ symbol 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 machine bleeps 3 times upon
pressing a button...
● Check:
i) If the ‘Child Lock’ is activated (see
below).
ii) Is a wash programme currently
running and the programme can not
be changed?
iii) The option is not available with the
selected wash programme.
A ‘Child Lock’ symbol is lit...
● This means that the machine has been
child locked. Deactivate this feature by
pressing and holding in the ‘Child Lock’
button for 2 seconds. You will hear a
beep and the ‘Child lock’ symbol will
go out, allowing you to use the machine
normally.
The door will not open...
● Has the programme finished? Is ‘End’ lit
in the display window and the ‘Keyhole’
symbol deactivated?
The door will not open until the ‘Keyhole’
symbol goes out shortly 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.
The clothes are hot at the end of the
programme...
● Check that the hoses are fitted correctly:
Fill hose with RED connector to HOT
Fill hose with BLUE connector to COLD
continued...
24
Troubleshooting...
I cannot read the information in the
display window...
● If the display window is not showing the
correct information, switch the machine
Off at the electric socket, wait 5 seconds
and switch back on.
The dispenser drawer will not close
properly...
● Please check that the drawer is properly
aligned.
● Is the drawer clogged with detergent?
(see: CLEANING & MAINTENANCE).
The ‘Time to End’ display jumps...
● The estimated programme times are
dependant on the temperature and
pressure of the incoming water supply,
the option(s) selected and the load being
washed. They may, therefore change
during the fill stages of each programme
to take into account the extra heating or
fill time required.
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.
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 base.
iii)You have correctly adjusted the front 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.
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.
Remember, you will be charged for a service
call for problems caused by incorrect
installation, non-removal of transit bolts or
packaging, leaks from household pipework,
loose or blocked fill and drain hoses.
Washing items which do not have a wash
label or washing items that are not intended
as machine washable and not emptying
contents from pockets may cause pump or
drain blockages or may damage components
of the machine.
If the machine is still not working contact
Hotpoint Service, see the back page.
TROUBLE
SHOOTING
The laundry has not spun dry...
● Did you use a short spin programme?
If so, try again using a faster spin
programme.
● Did you reduce the spin speed of the
selected programme using the ‘Spin’
option control button?
If so, select a faster spin programme.
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.
