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 washing machine 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
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 washing
Electric and water connections
Connecting the water inlet hose
1. Unpack the washing machine.
2. Check whether the washing machine has been
damaged during transport. If this is the case, do not
install it and contact your retailer.
3. Remove the 3
protective screws and
the rubber bush with the
respective spacer,
situated on the rear of
the appliance (see also
the installation leaflet).
NB:The plastic spacers
may fall down inside the
machine once the bolt
has been removed, and will not interfere with the
operation of the machine.
2. Connect the other end
of the water inlet hose to
the washing machine,
screwing it onto the
appliance's cold water
inlet, situated on the top
right-hand side on the
rear of the appliance

if the two front feet have not been adjusted correctly.
1. Install the washing machine on a flat sturdy floor,
without resting it up against walls, furniture cabinets
or other.
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°.
1. Insert seal A into the
end of the inlet hose

values indicated in the Technical details table
(on the next page).
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.
Connecting the drain hose
• the socket is compatible with the washing
machine's plug. If this is not the case, replace
the socket or the plug.
Before plugging the appliance into the mains
socket, make sure that:
• the socket is earthed and in compliance with the
applicable law;
• the socket is able to sustain the appliance's
maximum power load indicated in the Technical

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.
Removing the plug:
If your appliance has a non-rewireable moulded plug

Detergents and laundry
Detergent dispenser
Preparing your laundry
Good washing results also depend on the correct
dose of detergent: adding too much detergent won't
necessarily make for a more efficient wash, and may
in fact cause build up on the interior of your
appliance and even pollute the environment.
• Divide your laundry according to:
- the type of fabric/the symbol on the label.
- the colours: separate coloured garments from
• Empty all pockets and check for loose buttons.
• Do not exceed the weight limits stated below,
which refer to the weight when dry:
Sturdy fabrics: max 6 kg
Synthetic fabrics: max 2.5 kg
Delicate fabrics: max 2 kg
Wool: max 1,5 kg
Open up the detergent
dispenser and pour in
the detergent and fabric
softener, as follows.
How much does your laundry weigh?
compartment 1: Detergent for pre-wash
Before pouring in the detergent, make sure that
extra compartment 4 has been removed.
compartment 2: Detergent for the wash cycle
(powder or liquid)
Liquid detergent should only be poured in
immediately prior to the wash cycle start.
compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)
The fabric softener should not overflow from the grid.
extra compartment 4: Bleach
Do not use hand wash detergent because it may
form too much foam.

Special items
Curtains: fold curtains and place them in a pillow
case or mesh bag. Wash them separately without
exceeding half the appliance load. Use programme 6
which excludes the spin cycle automatically.
Quilted coats and windbreakers: if they are
padded with goose or duck down, they can be
machine-washed. Turn the garments inside out and
load a maximum of 2-3 kg, repeating the rinse cycle
once or twice and using the delicate spin cycle.
Wool: for best results, use a specific detergent,
taking care not to exceed a load of 1,5 kg.
As gentle as a hand wash.

Precautions and advice
General safety
• This appliance has been designed for nonprofessional, household use and its functions must
not be changed.
• Never touch the washing machine when barefoot
or with wet or damp hands or feet.
• Do not open the detergent dispenser while the
appliance is in operation.
• Do not touch the drain water as it could reach
very high temperatures.
• In the event of a malfunction, do not under any
circumstances touch internal parts in order to
attempt repairs.
• The appliance door tends to get quite hot during
the wash cycle.
• Before loading your laundry into the washing
machine, make sure the drum is empty.
• Disposing of the packaging material:
observe local regulations, so the packaging can
be re-used.
• Use the correct quantity of detergent depending
on the water hardness, how soiled the garments
are and the amount of laundry you have, to avoid
wastage and to protect the environment: despite
being biodegradable, detergents do contain
ingredients that alter the natural balance of the
environment. In addition, avoid using fabric
softener as much as possible.
• If you use your washing machine from late in the
afternoon until the early hours of the morning, you
will help reduce the electricity board's peak load.
The Delay Timer option (see page 9) helps to
organise your wash cycles accordingly.
• If your laundry has to be dried in a tumble dryer,
select a high spin speed. Having the least water
possible in your laundry will save you time and
energy in the drying process.
• 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
• Treating stains with a stain remover or leaving
them to soak before washing will cut down the
need to wash them at high temperatures. A
programme at 60°C instead of 90°C or one at
40°C instead of 60°C will save up to 50% on
• The pre-wash cycle is only necessary on
extremely soiled garments. Avoiding it will save on
detergent, time, water and between 5 and 15%
• Should it have to 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.
Saving on detergent, water, energy and time
• To avoid wasting resources, the washing machine
should be used with a full load. A full load instead
of two half loads allows you to save up to 50% on
• Always keep children well away from the
appliance while in operation.
Environmentally-friendly technology
If you only see a little water through your appliance
door, this is because thanks to the latest Indesit
technology, your washing machine only needs less
than half the amount of water to get the best
results: an objective reached to respect the
• Never force the washing machine door: this could
damage the safety lock mechanism designed to
prevent any accidental openings.
Saving energy and respecting the
• Do not pull on the power supply cable to unplug
the appliance from the electricity socket. Pull the
plug out yourself.
• This washing machine should only be used by
adults and in accordance with the instructions
provided in this manual.
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.
The washing machine was designed and built in
compliance with the applicable international safety
regulations. The following information is provided for
your safety and should consequently be read carefully.
Care and maintenance
Cutting off the water or electricity
• Turn off the water tap after every wash. This will
limit the wear of your appliance's water system
and also prevent leaks.
• Unplug your appliance when cleaning it and
during all maintenance operations.
Cleaning your appliance
The exterior and rubber parts of your appliance can
be cleaned with a soft cloth soaked in lukewarm
soapy water. Do not use solvents or abrasives.
Cleaning the detergent dispenser

should be repeated
Cleaning the pump
The washing machine is fitted with a self-cleaning
pump that does not require any maintenance.
Sometimes, small items (such as coins or buttons)
may fall into the pre-chamber that protects the
pump, situated in the lower part of the same.
Make sure the wash cycle has ended and unplug
the appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. using a screwdriver,
remove the cover panel
on the lower front of the
washing machine (see

Caring for your appliance door and
• Always leave the appliance door ajar to prevent
unpleasant odours from forming.
3. clean the interior 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
Checking the water inlet hose
Check the water inlet hose at least once a year. If
you see any cracks, replace it immediately: during
the wash cycles, water pressure is very strong and
a cracked hose could easily split open.
Never use hoses that have already been used.
Your washing machine could fail to work. Before calling for Assistance (see page 14), make sure the problem
can't easily be solved by consulting the following list.
The washing machine does not
drain or spin.
• Some programs have a slower final spin to taked best care of the
fabrics. See page 8 for details of the final spin speed for each program.
• The programme does not foresee the draining: some programmes
require enabling the draining manually (see page 8).
• The “Easy iron” function is enabled: to complete the programme,
press the START/RESET button (see page 9).
• The drain hose is bent (see page 3).
• Remove the drain hose from the standpipe or under-sink trap and check for
blockages, ensuring that the water can drain freely away from the machine.
The washing machine vibrates
too much during the spin cycle.
• When the machine is installed, the locking screws for the oscillating
assembly are still in place. Remove the screws (see page 2).
• The washing machine is not level (see page 2).
• The washing machine is closed in between furniture cabinets and
the wall (see page 2).
The machine is locked and the
display flashes, indicating an
error code (e.g. F-01, F-..).
• This means there is a problem with the machine. Before calling
Assistance, please follow the set of instructions below:
1. Switch off the machine;
2. Remove the plug connecting the appliance to the mains supply
and wait for at least 40 seconds;
3. Place the plug back into the socket;
4. Switch on the machine;
5. If the problem is still evident after this process has been carried out,
contact Assistance.
The washing machine leaks.
• The water inlet hose is not screwed on correctly (see page 2).
• The detergent dispenser is obstructed (to clean it, see page 12).
• The drain hose is not secured properly (see page 3).
There is too much foam.
• The detergent is not suitable for machine washing (it should bear the
definition "for washing machines" or "hand and machine wash", or the like).
• You used too much detergent.
