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
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 four
protective screws and
the rubber washer with
the respective spacer,
situated on the rear of
the appliance (see
figure).
4. Seal the gaps using the plastic plugs provided.
5. 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°.
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
1. Connect the supply
pipe to the water
mains using a gas 3/4
attachment, fitting
the rubber gasket and
the filter supplied with
the appliance and
ensuring that they are
fimly tightened to the
taps.
The water supply marked C must be connected to
the cold water tap; the pipe marked H must be
connected to the hot water tap. Both pipes may
be connected to the cold water tap using the
special Y connection with multiple attachments,
supplied with the appliance (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.

Door Mounting Accessories (Fig. 1-2-3-4-5).
Mounting the wooden panel onto the door and
inserting the machine into cabinets:
In the case where the machine must be shipped for
final installation after the wooden panel has been
mounted, we suggest leaving it in its original
packaging. The packaging was designed to make it
possible to mount the wooden panel onto the machine
without removing it completely (see figures below).
The wooden panel that covers the face of the machine
must not be less than 18 mm in thickness and can be
hinged on either the right or left. For the sake of
practicality when using the machine, we recommend
that the panel be hinged on the same side as the door
for the machine itself - the left.

Adjusting the appliance height.
The height of the appliance can be adjusted (from 815 mm to 835
mm), by turning the 4 feet.
Should you require the appliance to be placed higher than the
above height, you need to use the following accessories to raise
it to up to 870 mm:
the two crossbars (G); the 4 feet (H); the 4 screws (I); the 4 nuts
(L) then perform the following operations (fig. 11):
remove the 4 original feet, place a crossbar G at the front of the
appliance, fastening it in place using screws I (screwing them in
where the original feet were) then insert the new feet H.
Repeat the same operation at the back of the appliance.
Now adjust feet H to raise or lower the appliance from 835 mm to
870 mm.
Once you have reached the desired height, lock nuts L onto
crossbar G.
To adjust the appliance to a height between 870 mm and 900 mm,
you need to mount strip M, adjusting feet H to the required
height.
Insert the strip as follows:
loosen the three screws N situated at the front of the Top cover
of the appliance, insert strip M as shown in fig. 12, then fasten
screws N.
Precautions
Inserting the machine into the Cabinet.
- Push the machine into the opening, aligning it with
the cabinets (fig. 6).
- Regulate the adjustable feet to raise the machine to
the appropriate height.
- To adjust the position of the wooden panel in both
the vertical and horizontal directions, use the C and D
screws, as shown in fig. 7.
Important: close the lower part of the appliance front
by ensuring that the plinth rests against the floor.
Accessories provided for the height adjustment.
The following can be found inside the polystyrene lid
(fig. 10): 2 crossbars (G), 1 strip (M)
the following can be found
inside the appliance drum:
4 additional feet (H),

Detergents and laundry
GB
Detergent dispenser
Special items
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.
Curtains: fold curtains and place them in a pillow
case or mesh bag. Wash them separately without
exceeding half the appliance load. Use programme
“L” 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.
Trainers: remove any mud. They can be washed
together with jeans and other tough garments,
but not with whites.
Wool: for best results, use a specific detergent,
taking care not to exceed a load of 1 kg.
Open up the detergent
dispenser and pour in
the detergent and
fabric softener, as
follows.

?ompartment 1: Detergent for pre-wash
(powder)
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.
Do not use hand wash detergent because it may
form too much foam.
Preparing your laundry
_ Divide your laundry according to:
- the type of fabric/the symbol on the label.
- the colours: separate coloured garments
from whites.
_ 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 5 kg
Synthetic fabrics: max 2.5 kg
Delicate fabrics: max 2 kg
Wool: max 1 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 900-1,200 g
1 towel 150-250 g
Woolmark Platinum Care
As gentle as a hand wash.
Hotpoint sets a new standard of superior
performance that has been endorsed by
The Woolmark Company with the prestigious
Woolmark Platinum Care brand. Look for the
Woolmark Platinum Care logo on the washing
machine to ensure you can safely and effectively
wash wool garments labelled as "hand wash"
(M.0303):
Set programme “K” for all "Hand wash" garments
(max 1 kg), using the appropriate detergent.
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.
_ Always keep children well away from the
appliance while in operation.
_ 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.
_ 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
energy.
_ 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 Start function (see page 11)
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.

machine should be used with a full load. A full
load instead of two half loads allows you to save
up to 50% on energy.
Care
_ 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
Precautions
_ In the event of a malfunction, do not under any
circumstances touch internal parts in order to
attempt repairs.
Environmentally-friendly technology
If you only see a little water through your
appliance door, this is because thanks to the
latest Hotpoint technology, your washing machine
only needs less than half the amount of water to
get the best results: an objective reached to
respect the environment.
Detergents
_ Never force the washing machine door: this
could damage the safety lock mechanism
designed to prevent any accidental openings.
Saving energy and respecting the
environment
Programmes
_ Do not pull on the power supply cable to unplug
the appliance from the electricity socket. Pull
the plug out yourself.
Consumers should contact their local authority
or retailer for information concerning the
correct disposal of their old appliance.

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.
Installation
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
GB
Cutting off the water or electricity
supply
_ 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
Remove the dispenser
by raising it and pulling
it out (see figure).
Wash it under running
water; this operation
should be repeated
frequently.

Caring for your appliance door and drum
_ Always leave the appliance door ajar to prevent
unpleasant odours from forming.
Cleaning the pump
The washing machine is fitted with a self-cleaning
pump that does not require any maintenance.
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.

Troubleshooting
Your washing machine could fail to work. Before calling for Assistance (see page 17), make sure the problem
can't easily be solved by consulting the following list.
Possible causes/Solution:
The washing machine won't start.
_ The appliance is not plugged into the socket, or not enough to
make contact.
_ There has been a power failure.
The wash cycle won't start.

The water inlet hose is not connected to the tap.
The hose is bent.
The water tap is not turned on.
There is a water shortage.
The water pressure is insufficient.
The START/RESET button has not been pressed.
The washing machine continuously
loads and unloads water.
_ The drain hose is not fitted between 65 and 100 cm from the floor (see page 3).
_ The free end of the hose is underwater (see page 3).
_ The wall drainage system doesn't have a breather pipe.
If the problem persists even after these checks, turn off the water tap, switch
the appliance off and call for Assistance. If the dwelling is on one of the upper
floors of a building, there may be drain trap problems causing the washing
machine to load and unload water continuously. In order to avoid such an
inconvenience, special anti-drain trap valves are available in shops.
The washing machine does not
drain or spin.
_ The programme does not foresee the draining: some
programmes require enabling the draining manually (see page 10).
_ The Rinse Hold function is enabled: to complete the programme,
press the START/RESET button (see page 11).
_ The drain hose is bent (see page 3).
_ The drain duct is clogged.
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 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 14).
_ The drain hose is not secured properly (see page 3).
The DOOR LOCKED Led flashes
rapidly at the same time as at
least one other LED.
_ 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.
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.
