Installation
GB
This instruction manual should be kept in a safe
place for future reference. If the Washer-dryer is sold,
transferred or moved, make sure that the instruction
manual remains with the machine so that the new
owner is able to familiarise himself/herself with its
operation and features.
Levelling the machine correctly will provide it with
stability, help to avoid vibrations and excessive noise
and prevent it from shifting while it is operating. If it is
placed on carpet or a rug, adjust the feet in such a
way as to allow a sufficient ventilation space
underneath the Washer-dryer.
Read these instructions carefully: they contain vital
information relating to the safe installation and
operation of the appliance.

Unpacking
1. Remove the Washer-dryer from its packaging.
2. Make sure that the Washer-dryer has not been
damaged during the transportation process. If it has
been damaged, contact the retailer and do not
proceed any further with the installation process.
3. Remove the 4
protective screws (used
during transportation) and
the rubber washer with
the corresponding
spacer, located on the
rear part of the appliance
(see figure).
4. Close off the holes using the plastic plugs provided.
5. Keep all the parts in a safe place: you will need
them again if the Washer-dryer needs to be moved to
another location.
Packaging materials should not be used as toys for
children.
Levelling
1. Install the Washer-dryer on a flat sturdy floor,
without resting it up against walls, furniture cabinets
or anything else.
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 in
relation to the worktop,
must not exceed 2°.
2
1. Connect the supply
pipe by screwing it to a
cold water tab using a ¾
gas threaded connection
(see figure).
Before performing the
connection, allow the
water to run freely until it
is perfectly clear.
2. Connect the inlet hose
to the Washer-dryer by
screwing it onto the
corresponding water inlet
of the appliance, which is
situated on the top righthand side of the rear part
of the appliance (see
figure).
3. Make sure that the hose is not folded over or bent.
The water pressure at the tap must fall within the
values indicated in the Technical details table (see
next page).
If the inlet hose is not long enough, contact a
specialised shop or an authorised technician.
Never use second-hand hoses.
Use the ones supplied with 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 i
ndicated 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.
Where it connects
to the waste water
pipe cut end off
spigot or remove the
blanking cap
The drain hose may be
connected to an
under-sink 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

Detergents and laundry
GB
Detergent dispenser drawer
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 cause build up on the inside of your appliance
and contribute to environmental pollution.
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
3
follows.

compartment 1: Pre-wash detergent (powder)
compartment 2: Detergent for the wash cycle
(powder or liquid)
Liquid detergent should only be poured in immediately
prior to the start of the wash cycle.
compartment 3: 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. 7 kg
Synthetic fabrics: max. 3 kg
Delicate fabrics: max. 2 kg
Wool: max. 1,5 kg
Silk: max. 1 kg

Special wash cycles
Wool: all wool garments can be washed using
programme 5, even those carrying the "hand-wash
label. For best results, use special
only"
detergents and do not exceed 1,5 kg of laundry.
Silk: use special wash cycle 6 to wash all silk
garments. We recommend the use of special
detergent which has been designed to wash delicate
clothes.
10
Curtains: fold curtains and place them in a pillow
case or mesh bag. Use wash cycle 6.
Jeans: Turn garments inside-out before washing and
use a liquid detergent. Use programme 7.
Sport Intensive (wash cycle 8) is for washing lightly
soiled sports clothing fabrics (tracksuits, shorts, etc.);
for best results, we recommend not exceeding the
maximum load indicated in the "Table of wash
cycles". We recommend using a liquid detergent and
dosage suitable for a half-load.
Sport Light (wash cycle 9): is for washing lightly
soiled sports clothing fabrics (tracksuits, shorts, etc.);
for best results, we recommend not exceeding the
maximum load indicated in the "Table of wash
cycles". We recommend using a liquid detergent and
dosage suitable for a half-load.
Sport Shoes (wash cycle 10): is for washing sports
shoes; for best results, do not wash more than 2
pairs simultaneously.
Express Wash & Dry (wash cycle 13) was designed
to wash and dry lightly soiled garments quickly. This
cycle may be used to wash and dry a laundry load of
up to 0.5 kg in just 40 minutes.
To achieve optimum results, use liquid detergent and
pre-treat cuffs, collars and stains.
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 Washer-dryer
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.

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 Washer-dryer (see
figure);
2. unscrew the lid by
rotating it anti-clockwise
(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.

help to avoid this inconvenience.
