! 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.

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.

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.

If your laundry load to be washed and dried is much greater than the maximum stated load (see adjacent table), perform the
wash cycle, and when the cycle is complete, divide the garments into groups and put some of them back in the drum. At this
point, follow the instructions provided for a “Drying only” cycle. Repeat this procedure for the remainder of the load.
Drying only
Use the cycle selector knob to select a drying cycle (11-12) in accordance with the type of fabric. The desired drying level or
time may also be set using the DRYING knob.
Functions
The various wash functions available with this washer-dryer will help to achieve the desired results, every time.
To activate the functions:
1. Press the button corresponding to the desired function;
2. the function is enabled when the corresponding indicator light is illuminated.
Note: If the indicator light flashes rapidly, this signals that this particular function may not be selected in conjunction with the
selected wash cycle.
Delay timer
To set a delayed start for the selected programme, press the corresponding button repeatedly until the required delay period
has been reached. When this option is enabled, the
symbol lights up on the display. To remove the delayed start option
press the button until the text “OFF” appears on the display.
! This option is enabled with all programmes.
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, , , .
The
function saves energy by not heating the water used to wash your laundry - an advantage both to the
environment and to your energy bill. Instead, intensified wash action and water optimisation ensure great wash results in the
same average time of a standard cycle.
For the best washing results we recommend the usage of a liquid detergent.
! This function may not be used in conjunction with wash cycles 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11,12, 13, , , .

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.
1

3
Open the detergent dispenser drawer and pour
in the detergent or washing
additive, as follows.
! 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 values listed in the “Table of wash
cycles”, which refer to the weight of the laundry when dry.
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
Garments requiring special care
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.
Curtains: fold curtains and place them in a pillow case or
mesh bag. Use wash cycle 6.
10
Jeans: Turn garments inside-out before washing and use
a liquid detergent. Use programme 7.
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.
• 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
• Disposing of the packaging materials: observe local
regulations so that the packaging may be re-used.
• The European Directive 2012/19/EU 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.
• 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.

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);

• 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.

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.
