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.
Connecting the electricity and
water supplies
Unpacking and levelling
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
Connecting the water inlet hose
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 washerdryer 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).
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
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 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 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.
Electric connection

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.
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.
• The washer-dryer has a “Auto Clean”
programme for its internal parts that must be
run with no load in the drum.
For maximum performance you may want
to use either the detergent (i.e. a quantity
10% the quantity specified for lightly-soiled
garments) or special additives to clean the
washer-dryer. We recommend running a
cleaning programme every 40 wash cycles.
To start the programme press buttons A and
B simultaneously for 5 seconds (see figure).
The programme will start automatically and
will last approximately 70 minutes. To stop the
cycle press the START/PAUSE button.
Cleaning the pump
The washer-dryer is fitted with a selfcleaning pump which does not require any
maintenance. Sometimes, small items (such
as coins or buttons) may fall into the protective
pre-chamber at the base of the pump.
! Make sure the wash cycle has finished and
unplug the appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:

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.
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.
• 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

Push&Wash+Dry
This function makes it possible to start an automatic wash and drying cycle either when the machine is off without having to
press the ON/OFF button in advance, or after switching on the machine without having activated any button and/or selector
(otherwise the Push&Wash+Dry function will be deactivated). To start the Push&Wash+Dry cycle press and hold the button
for 2 seconds. The indicator lights up to show that the cycle has started. The wash and drying cycle is ideal for cotton or
synthetic fabrics, as it washes them at a temperature of 30° and a maximum spin speed of 1000 rpm. During the drying
cycle the maximum temperature is 60°C. At the end of the cycle the residual humidity will be the same as for the “ ” level.
Max recommended load 3 kg.
The time displayed is the maximum time allowed by the Push&Wash+Dry cycle. If the load is lower than the maximum load
or most garment are made of synthetic materials, the actual time of the cycle will be shorter.
How does it work?
1. Load the laundry (cotton and/or synthetic garments) and close the door.
2. Pour the detergent and/or additives.
3. Start the cycle by pressing and holding the Push&Wash+Dry button for 2 seconds. The relevant indicator light will turn
green and the door will lock (the DOOR LOCKED symbol is lit).
NB: starting the cycle through the Push&Wash+Dry button activates an automatic non-customisable wash and drying cycle
recommended for cotton and synthetic fabrics.
4. The automatic cycle can be used only for washing, excluding the drying phase. Press the Push&Wash+Dry button and
then the drying button
: the drying icon of the “ ” level will switch off. Maximum load for washing-only is 4 kg. The cycle
cannot be customised further.
To open the door while an automatic cycle is under way, press the START/PAUSE button. If the DOOR LOCKED symbol is
off, the door may be opened only during the washing phase. Press the START/PAUSE button again to restart the wash cycle
from the point at which it was interrupted.
5. At the end of the wash cycle the word END will light up.

Detergents and laundry
Detergent dispenser drawer
Successful 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.
! Use powder detergent for white cotton garments, for prewashing, and for washing at temperatures over 60°C.
! Follow the instructions given on the detergent packaging.
Open the detergent
dispenser drawer and pour

! Do not pour detergent into the compartment 1.
Detergent should only be poured into the compartment 2.
Compartment 2: Washing detergent (powder or liquid)
If liquid detergent is used, it is recommended that the
removable plastic partition A (supplied) be used for proper
dosage. If powder detergent is used, place the partition
into slot B.
Compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)
The fabric softener must not exceed the “max” level indicated
on the central pin.
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 900-1.200 g
1 towel 150-250 g
Special wash cycles
Sport (programme 1) is designed for washing lightly soiled
sports clothing (tracksuits, shorts, etc.); for best results, we
recommend not exceeding the maximum load indicated
in the “Table of wash cycles”. We recommend using liquid
detergent, and adding the amount suitable for a half-load.
Dark: use programme 2 to wash dark-coloured garments.
This programme is designed to maintain dark colours over
time. We recommend using a liquid detergent for the best
results when washing dark-coloured garments.
When you select the drying function, at the end of the
washing cycle the machine will automatically perform a
delicate drying cycle that preserves the colours of the
garments. The display will show the level “ ”.
Max. load: 3 kg.
Anti-odour: use programme 3 for washing garments
with bad odours (e.g. smoke, sweat, fried food). The
programme is designed to remove bad odours while
preserving the fabric fibres. Synthetics fabrics or mixed
loads should be washed at 40°, and resistant cotton
fabrics at 60°.
Delicate: use programme 4 to wash very delicate
garments. It is advisable to turn the garments inside out
before washing them. For best results, use liquid detergent
on delicate garments.
When selecting an exclusively time-based drying function,
a drying cycle is performed at the end of the wash cycle
that is particularly delicate, thanks to light handling and
appropriate temperature control of the water jet.
The recommended durations are:
1 kg of synthetic garments --> 150 min
1 kg of synthetic and cotton garments --> 180 min
1 kg of cotton garments --> 180 min
The degree of dryness depends on the load and fabric
composition.
Wool: the wool wash programme of this machine has
been tested and approved by The Woolmark Company
for the washing of wool containing garments labelled as
“hand wash” provided that the garments are washed
according to the instructions on the garment label and
those issued by the manufacturer of this washer-dryer.
(M1127)
In UK, Eire, Hong Kong and India the Woolmark trade mark
is a Certification trade mark.
Rapid 30’ (programme 6) this programme is designed to
wash lightly soiled garments at 30° (excluding wool and
silk) with a 3 kg maximum load in a short time: it only lasts
30 minutes and allows for saving time and energy
Coloured: use this programme 10 to wash bright
coloured clothes. The programme is designed to maintain
bright colours over time.
Eco Cotton 20° (programme 11) ideal for lightly soiled
cotton loads. The effective performance levels achieved at
cold temperatures, which are comparable to washing at
40°, are guaranteed by a mechanical action which operates
at varying speed, with repeated and frequent peaks.
Eco Synthetic 20° (programme 12) ideal for mixed
loads (cotton and synthetics) with a normal soil level. The
effective performance levels achieved at cold temperatures
are guaranteed by a mechanical action which operates at
varying speed, across set average intervals.
Wash&Dry 45’ select programme 13 for washing and
drying lightly soiled garments (Cotton and Synthetic) in a
short time. This cycle may be used to wash and dry a
laundry load of up to 1 kg in just 45 minutes. To achieve
optimum results, use liquid detergent and pre-treat cuffs,
collars and stains.

AirFresh (programme 14) ideal cycle to refresh garments
and remove bad odours, in particular smoke, from cotton
and synthetic items in 30’ (max 1.5 kg) without the
washing phase.
Load balancing system
Before every spin cycle, to avoid excessive vibrations
before every spin 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.

Troubleshooting
Your washer-dryer could occasionally fail to work. Before contacting the Technical Assistance Service (see “ Service”), make
sure that the problem cannot be solved easily using the following list.
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 washer-dryer does not dry.
• Check the 2 sections above.
• The “Drying” is set to “OFF”.
The machine does not fill with
water or ‘H20’ in the display.
• 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 machine does spin.
• The “Spin Speed” is set to “OFF”.
The machine does not heat or poor
wash results.
• The ‘Temperature’ is set to “OFF”.
The 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).
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.
Push&Wash+Dry does not activate.
• After switching on the machine a control other than Push&Wash+Dry was activated. Switch the machine off and press the Push&Wash+Dry button.

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 are flash
rapidly and an error code appears
on the display (eg F-01, F-..).
• 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 “Auto Clean” 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.
• If there is no power to the machine you need to perform the manual unlocking
procedure.
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 indicated on
pages 2 to 4.
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.
