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 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
machine.
Electric and water connections
Connecting the water inlet hose
Unpacking
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 4
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.
4. Do not remove external bar.
5. Seal the gaps using the plastic plugs provided.
6. Keep all the parts: you will need them again if
the washing machine 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 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°.
A
1. Insert seal A into the
end of the inlet hose and
screw the latter onto a
cold water tap with a 3/4
gas threaded mouth
(see figure).
Before making 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 washing machine,
screwing it onto the
appliance's cold water
inlet, situated on the top
right-hand 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 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
65 - 100 cm
Connect the drain
hose, without bending
it, to a draining duct or
a wall drain situated
between 65 and 100 cm
from the floor;
_ the supply voltage is included within the values
indicated on the Technical details table
(see page 5);
GB
_ the socket is compatible with the washing
machine's plug. If this is not the case, replace
the socket or the plug.
Your appliance is now supplied with a 13 amp fused
plug it can be plugged into a 13 amp socket for
immediate use. Before using the appliance please
read the instructions below.
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 place 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 socket is able to sustain the appliance's
maximum power load indicated in the Technical
details table (see page 5);

Eco Wash cycles
The Eco Cycles assure energy saving by eliminating the need of heating water and it’s an advantage both to your
energy bill and the environment!
These innovative Eco programmes (Cotton, Synthetics and Fast Wash) are available for various fabrics and
different quantity of garment; they have been designed to guarantee a high cleaning action even at low temperature and can be used for lightly to medium soiled loads.
Eco Cycles give the best results thanks to an intensified wash action, water optimization and are carried out in the
same average time of a standard cycle.
For the best washing results with Eco programmes we recommend the usage of a liquid detergent.

Detergents and laundry
GB
Detergent dispenser drawer
Garments requiring special care
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 a build up on the inside of your appliance
and contribute to environmental pollution.
Baby cycle: this wash cycle 6 can be used to
remove the soiling typically caused by babies, while
ensuring that all detergent is removed from
nappies in order to prevent the delicate skin of
babies from suffering allergies. The cycle has been
designed to reduce the amount of bacteria by using
a greater quantity of water and optimising the
effect of special disinfecting additives added to the
detergent.
At the end of the wash cycle, the machine will slowly
rotate the drum to prevent the formation of
creases; to end the cycle press the START/PAUSE
button.
Shirts: use special wash cycle 7 to wash shirts in
various fabrics and colours.
It guarantees maximum care is taken of the
garments and minimises the formation of creases.
Lingerie cycle: for undergarments of any colour,
in any fabric. Use special wash cycle 8.
Wool: Hotpoint is the only washing machine
manufacturer to have been awarded the
prestigious Woolmark Platinum Care endorsement
(M.0508) by the Woolmark Company, which means
that all woollen garments may be washed in the
washing machine, even those which state “hand
on the label. Wash cycle 9 therefore
wash only”
offers complete peace of mind when washing
woollen garments in the washing machine (max. load
1,5 kg) and guarantees optimal performance.
Silk: use special wash cycle 10 to wash all silk
garments. We recommend the use of special
detergent which has been designed to wash delicate clothes.
Curtains: fold curtains and place them in a pillow
case or mesh bag. Use wash cycle 10.
! Do not use hand washing detergents because
these create too much foam.
Open the detergent
dispenser drawer and
pour in the detergent or
washing additive, as
follows.
2
*
1
! Do not pour detergent into the middle compartment (*).
Detergent should only be poured into the compartment 1.
compar tment 1: Detergent for the wash
cycle (powder or liquid)
For best results liquid detergent should be poured
in the dispenser immediately before the start of
the programme.
compartment 2: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)
The fabric softener should not overflow the grid.
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. 6 kg
Synthetic fabrics: max. 2,5 kg
Delicate fabrics: max. 2 kg
Wool: max. 1,5 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
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 washing machine 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 washing machine was designed and
constructed in accordance with international
safety regulations. The following information is
provided for safety reasons and must therefore be
read carefully.
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:
General safety
• This appliance was designed for domestic use only.
• The washing machine must only be used by adults, in
accordance with the instructions provided in this manual.
• 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 open the detergent dispenser drawer
while the machine is in operation.
• 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.
20
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.
3. using a screwdriver,
remove the cover panel on
the lower front part of
the washing machine (see
figure).
• 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.
• The door can become quite hot during the wash cycle.
• If the appliance has to be moved, work in a group
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 washing machine,
make sure the drum is empty.
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.
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
• Turn off the water tap after every wash cycle.
This will limit wear on the hydraulic system inside
the washing machine and help to prevent leaks.
• Unplug the washing machine when cleaning it and
during all maintenance work.
Cleaning the washing machine
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.
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.
1
2
Cleaning the pump
The washing machine 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 washing machine
(see figure);
2. unscrew the lid by
rotating it anticlockwise (see figure): a
little water may trickle
out. This is perfectly
normal;
Caring for the door and drum of
your appliance
• Always leave the porthole door ajar in order to
prevent unpleasant odours from forming.
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 washing machine 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.
