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.
! Read these instructions carefully: they contain vital infor-
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.
mation relating to the safe installation and operation of the
appliance.
Connecting the electricity and water
supplies
Unpacking and levelling
Connecting the water inlet hose
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).
1. Connect the supply pipe
by screwing it to a cold
water tap 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 right-hand
side of 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.
3. Make sure that the hose is not folded over or bent.
! Packaging materials should not be used as toys for
children.
! The water pressure at the tap must fall within the values
indicated in the Technical details table (see page 5).
Levelling
! If the inlet hose is not long enough, contact a specialised
shop or an authorised technician.
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
! Never use second-hand hoses.
! Use the ones supplied with the machine.
Connecting the drain hose
65 - 100 cm
Where it connects to
the waste water pipe
cut end off spigot or
remove the blanking cap
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 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 placed 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.

Detergents
The length of cycle shown on the display or in this booklet is an estimation only and is calculated assuming standard working conditions. The actual duration can vary according to factors such as
water temperature and pressure, the amount of detergent used, the amount and type of load inserted, load balancing and any wash options selected.
For all Test Institutes:
1) Test wash cycle in compliance with regulation EN 50229: set wash cycle 1 with a temperature of 60°C.
2) Long wash cycle for cottons: set wash cycle 1 with a temperature of 40°C.
3) Short wash cycle for cottons: set wash cycle 3 with a temperature of 40°C.
Wash options
Selecting this option enables you to suitably adjust drum
rotation, temperature and water to a reduced load of lightly
soiled cotton and synthetic fabrics (refer to the “Table of
wash cycles”). “
” enables you to wash in less time
thereby saving water and electricity. We suggest using a
liquid detergent suitably measured out to the load quantity.
! This function may not be used in conjunction with cycles
1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, , , .
Intensive Wash
Because a greater quantity of water is used in the initial
phase of the cycle, and because of the increased cycle
duration, this function offers a high-performance wash.
! This function may not be used in conjunction with cycles
5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, , , .
Easy iron
By selecting this function, the wash and spin cycles will be
modified in order to reduce the formation of creases. At
the end of the cycle the Washer-dryer will perform slow rotations of the drum; the indicator lights for the EASY IRON
and START/PAUSE options will flash (the first one green,
the second orange).
To end the cycle, press the START/PAUSE button or the
EASY IRON button.
For the 6 wash cycle, the machine will end the cycle while
the laundry is soaking and the EASY IRON and START/
PAUSE indicator lights will flash. To drain the water so that
the laundry may be removed, press the START/PAUSE
button or the EASY IRON button.
! This function may not be used in conjunction with cycles
5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, , .
Note: If you also want to run the drying cycle, this option is
enabled only if combined with level “A1” (Iron dry).
Delay Timer
To set a delayed start for the selected cycle, press the
corresponding button repeatedly until the required delay
period has been reached. When this option is enabled, the
corresponding indicator light will remain lit. To remove the
delayed start setting, press the button until the text “OFF”
appears on the display.
! This option can be used in conjunction with all cycles.

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 follows.
1
2
3
! Do not pour detergent into the compartment 1.
Detergent should only be poured into the compartment 2.
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
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
Special wash cycles
Wool: all wool garments can be washed using programme
5, even those carrying the “hand-wash only”
label. For
best results, use special 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 heavily
soiled sports clothing fabrics (tracksuits, shorts, etc.); for
best results, we recommend not exceeding the maximum
load indicated in the “Table of wash cycles”.
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 halfload.
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 35 minutes.
To achieve optimum results, use liquid detergent and pretreat 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.
Precautions and tips
! This Washer-dryer was designed and constructed in
accordance with international safety regulations. The following information is provided for safety reasons and must
therefore be read carefully.
General safety
• This appliance was designed for domestic use only.
• This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless
they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their
safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they
do not play with the appliance.
- Do not dry unwashed items in the tumble dryer.
- Items that have been soiled with substances such as
cooking oil, acetone, alcohol, petrol, kerosene, spot removers, turpentine, waxes and wax removers should be
washed in hot water with an extra amount of detergent
before being dried in the tumble dryer.
- Items such as foam rubber (latex foam), shower caps, waterproof textiles, rubber backed articles and clothes or pillows fitted
with foam rubber pads should not be dried in the tumble dryer.
- Fabric softeners, or similar products, should be used
as specified by the fabric softener instructions.
- The final part of a tumble dryer cycle occurs without heat
(cool down cycle) to ensure that the items are left at a temperature that ensures that the items will not be damaged.
WARNING: Never stop a tumble dryer before the end of
the drying cycle unless all items are quickly removed and
spread out so that the heat is dissipated.
• The Washer-dryer 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.
• 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 Washer-dryer, make sure
the drum is empty.
• During the drying phase, the door tends to get quite hot.
• Do not use the appliance to dry clothes that have been washed with flammable solvents (e.g. trichlorethylene).
• Do not use the appliance to dry foam rubber or similar elastomers.
• Make sure that the water tap is turned on during the drying cycles.
Disposal
GB
• 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.
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:
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 Washer-dryer (see figure).
4. pull outwards using the tab as indicated in the figure,
until the plastic tie-rod is freed from its stop position; pull

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 washer-dryer
and help to prevent leaks.
• Unplug the washer-dryer when cleaning it and during all
maintenance work.
2. unscrew the lid by rotating it anti-clockwise (see
figure): a little water may
trickle out. This is perfectly
normal;
Cleaning the washer-dryer
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.
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.
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.
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.
Caring for the door and drum of your
appliance
• Always leave the porthole door ajar in order to prevent
unpleasant odours from forming.
Cleaning the pump
The washer-dryer 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
washer-dryer (see figure);

Troubleshooting
Your Washer-dryer 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.
GB
Problem:
Possible causes / Solutions:
The machine does not switch on.
• The appliance is not plugged into the socket fully, or not enough to make contact.
• There is no power to the socket, or the fuse has blown in the mains plug.
The wash cycle does not start.
• The door is not closed properly.
• The ON/OFF button has not been pressed.
• The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed.
• The water tap has not been turned on to allow water to flow into the machine.
• A delayed start has been set.
The machine does not dry.
• Check the 2 sections above.
• The ‘DRY’ button has been pressed to exclude drying.
The clothes are too hot when the
drying cycle is finished.
• A cooling-down period is always added to the end of each drying cycle. If the
clothes appear too hot to handle leave the door open to allow to cool further
before removing from the machine.
The machine does not fill with water or ‘H2o’ is shown in the display
window.
• The water inlet hose is kinked.
• The water inlet hose is not connected to the water supply.
• The water pressure is too low.
• The water tap has not been turned on to allow water to flow into the machine.
• There is no water supply to the house.
• The inlet valve filter is blocked.
• The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed.
The machine continuously fills with
water and continually drains away
or Water left in the drum
or Stuck on wash.
• The top of the drain hose is too low - It must be fitted at a height between 65
and 100 cm from the floor (see “Installation”).
• The drain hose is connected incorrectly to the sink trap allowing water to run
into the machine, the drain hose must be positioned higher than the bottom of
the sink to prevent water flowing down the drain hose.
• The end of the drain hose has been pushed too far down the standpipe, the
‘U’ bracket should be fitted 100 mm from the end of the drain hose.
The machine does not drain or spin
(error lights flashing).
• The Pump filter is blocked.
• The drain hose is kinked (see “Installation”).
• New Installation - The blanking cap or spigot has not been removed if
connected under a sink.
• The drain hose or sink trap is blocked.
The wash programme takes too
long.
• Programme times will vary due to water pressure, the incoming water temperature
and if the wash load goes out of balance. This will increase the programme times
accordingly (see ‘ The machine wont spin properly’ below) - (Most Common Cause!).
The Display sticks at one ‘time to
end’ for more than 1 Minute or the
Display changes the estimated ‘Time
to End’ during the programme.
• The display time is for guidance only - it is not a precise time to finish
and may vary.
The machine vibrates a lot during
the spin cycle.
• The feet have not been adjusted, enabling the machine to rock.
• New Installation - Either the Transit Bolts including the plastic spacers, or the
Polystyrene Packaging have not been removed when installing the machine.
• The machine is trapped between cabinets and/or walls.
• The load is in a slight out of balance condition and machine is spinning, but at
a lower speed.
13
GB
The machine is noisy.
• There will always be some motor, pump and drum noise during spin.
The machine wont spin properly.
• Out of Balance detected when attempting to go into a spin cycle - If this
happens the machine will continue to try to repeat the distribution of the load
required before the machine will go into higher spin speeds - This will increase
the programme time accordingly. This is a safety feature to prevent damage.
Out of Balance can be caused by washing a single heavy item (eg duvet, quilt,
etc). - Try the programme again using a different load.
The machine leaks from the
dispenser.
• The dispenser drawer is blocked with detergent and requires cleaning.
• The water pressure is too high and requires turning down - turn down the tap
on the water supply pipe slightly and try again.
• The machine is tilting forwards - It must be level when in its final position.
The machine leaks (other than
dispenser).
• The fill hose is loose, check both the cabinet and tap ends.
• The fill hose is tight but still leaks, if so replace the rubber washers, or the fill
hose is missing the rubber washer.
• The drain hose is not fixed in properly.
The option lights and the START/
PAUSE indicator light flash while
one of the wash cycle progress
and DOOR LOCKED lights are lit in
a fixed manner.
• Switch off the machine and unplug it, wait for approximately 1 minute and then
switch back on again. If the problem persists contact Technical Assistance
Centre.
The machine smells.
• The machine requires a service wash. Run a 90 degree wash cycle with detergent and no laundry.
The machine door cannot be
opened.
• The door will not open until the door lock indicator light goes out shortly after
the program has finished.
Door Seal damaged at the bottom.
• The door seal has drainage holes at the bottom - This is normal.
The water level is too low when
the machine is washing.
• The water level is correct if it can be seen at the bottom of the door.
There is too much foam.
• The detergent is not suitable for machine washing (it should display the text
‘for washing machines’ or ‘hand and machine wash’ or the like).
• Too much detergent was used - less detergent is required in soft water.
After completing the programme,
or before starting a programme,
the machine has turned itself off
(no lights).
• To comply with new energy saving regulations the machine is fitted with an
automatic standby system. Press ‘ON/OFF’ button for 3 seconds to activate
the machine, it can then either be switched off or a new programme selected.
General.
• Your washing machine contains sensors that monitor progress during the wash
cycle (eg: Water Levels, Temperatures, Out of Balance loads, Wash time/progress).
Normally, if your machine successfully completes the cycle, there is unlikely to
be anything wrong!
Remember, you will be charged for a service call for problems caused by incorrect installation, as listed
above.
Not emptying contents from pockets may cause pump or drain blockages, or may damage the machine.
Do not wash items which do not have a wash label, or wash items that are not intended as machine
washable.
