Care and maintenance
Cutting off the water and electricity supplies
Cleaning the pump
•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
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.
•Unplug the washer-dryer when cleaning it
and during all maintenance work.
! Make sure the wash cycle has finished and
unplug the appliance.
Cleaning the washer-dryer
To access the pre-chamber:
• 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.
To help the wash cycle 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 run for about 70
minutes. To stop the
cycle press the START/
PAUSE button.

2. unscrew the lid
by rotating it anticlockwise (see figure): a little water may
trickle out. This is
perfectly normal;
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.
Caring for the door and drum of
your appliance
•Always leave the porthole door ajar in order
to prevent unpleasant odours from forming.

wash cycle; this values cannot therefore be increased.
The temperature can be decreased by pressing the
TEMPERATURE button, until the cold wash “OFF” setting
is reached. If this button is pressed again, the maximum
values are restored.
! Exception: if the 2 (1st press of the button) programme is
selected, the temperature can be increased up to a
value of 90°C.
Setting a delayed start.
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 function press the button until the text
“OFF” appears on the display.
Setting the drying cycle.
The desired drying cycle type may be set by pressing the
DRY button once or several times. Two options are available:
A - Based on the how damp the clothes are once they
have been dried:
Iron: suitable for clothes which will need ironing afterwards.
the remaining dampness softens creases, making them
easier to remove.
Hanger: ideal for clothes which do not need to be dried fully.
Cupboard: suitable for laundry which can be put back in a
cupboard without being ironed.
Extra: suitable for garments which need to be dried
completely, such as sponges and bathrobes.
B - Based on a set time period: between 20 and 180 minutes.
To exclude the drying phase press the relevant button until
the text OFF appears on the display.
If your laundry load to be washed and dried is much greater
than the maximum stated load, 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. A cooling-down
period is always added to the end of each drying cycle.
Drying only
Use the cycle selector knob to select a drying cycle (CottonSynthetics-Wool) in accordance with the type of fabric. The desired
drying level or time may also be set using the DRYING button.
Selecting the cotton drying cycle through the programme
selector knob and pressing the “Eco” button activates an
automatic drying cycle that allows for saving energy, thanks
to an optimal combination of air temperature and cycle
duration; the display will visualise the “Eco” dryness level.
Set the desired wash intensity.
Option CLEANING ACTION makes it possible to optimise
washing based on the level of soil in the fabrics and on
desired wash cycle intensity.
Select the wash programme: the cycle will be automatically
set to “Normal” as optimised for garments with an average
level of soil (this setting is not applicable to the “Wool” cycle,
which is automatically set to “Delicate”).
For heavily-soiled garments press button CLEANING ACTION
until the “Super Wash” level is reached. This level ensures a
high-performance wash due to a larger quantity of water used
in the initial phase of the cycle and due to increased drum
rotation. It is useful when removing the most stubborn stains.
For lightly-soiled garments or a more delicate treatment of the
fabrics, press button CLEANING ACTION until the “Delicate”
level is reached. The cycle will reduce the drum rotation to
ensure washing results are perfect for delicate garments.
Set the rinse type.
Option ANTI ALLERGY RINSE makes it possible to select
the desired rinse type for sensitive skin. Press the button once
for the “Extra Rinse” level, which makes it possible to select
an additional rinse after the standard cycle rinse and remove all
traces of detergent. Press the button again for the “Sensitive
Skin” level, which makes it possible to select two additional
rinses to the standard cycle rinses; it is recommended for very
sensitive skin.When the button is pressed for the third time, the
“Anti allergy Rinse” level is set, thus allowing the selection
of 3 rinses in addition to the standard cycle’s rinses. The
option - started with cycles at a temperature of 40°C - makes
it possible to remove major allergens such as pollen, cat and
dog hair. With cycles at a temperature higher than 40° a very
good level of antiallergic protection is achieved. Press the button
again to go back to the “Normal Rinse” rinse type. If the current
adjustment can be neither set nor changed, the display will show
“Not allowed”.
Modifying the cycle settings.
• Press the button to enable the function; the indicator
light corresponding to the button will switch on.

Steam Hygiene
This option enhances washing performance by generating
steam during the wash cycle that eliminates any bacteria
from fibres while treating them at the same time. Place the
laundry in the drum, choose a compatible programme and
select the function “Steam Hygiene”.
! The steam generated during washing machine operation
may cause the porthole door to become hazy.
Eco Wash
The Eco 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.
By selecting the drying function as well, an automatic
drying cycle automatically activates at the end of the wash
cycle – it too allows for saving energy, thanks to the optimal combination of air temperature and cycle duration; the
display will visualise the “Eco” dryness level,
! It can be activated with programmes “Cotton Standard
60°C” and “Cotton Standard 40°C” .
Slow Spin

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 a
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.

- 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
Special wash cycles
Anti Stain: this programme is suitable to heavily-soiled
garments with resistant colours. It ensures a washing
class that is higher than the standard class (A class). When
running the programme, do not mix garments of different
colours. We recommend the use of powder detergent.
Pre-treatment with special additives is recommended if
there are obstinate stains.
If the drying function is selected, a drying cycle automatically activates at the end of the wash cycle that resembles
open-air drying, with the added advantages of preserving
garments from yellowing due to sunlight exposure and preventing loss of whiteness caused by the possible presence
of dust in the air. Drying cycles can only be selected on a
level basis. Dryness level “Hanger” recommended.
Anti Stain Quick: this programme is ideal for washing
the most difficult daily stains in 1 hour. It is ideal for mixed
fabrics and coloured garments, caring for your clothes as
it washes.
If the drying function is selected, a drying cycle automatically activates at the end of the wash cycle that resembles
open-air drying, with the added advantages of preserving
garments from yellowing due to sunlight exposure and preventing loss of whiteness caused by the possible presence
of dust in the air. Drying cycles can only be selected on a
level basis. Dryness level “Hanger” recommended
Cotton Standard 20°C: 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.
Wool: the wool wash cycle of this machine has been
approved by The Woolmark Company for the washing of
wool garments labelled as “hand wash” provided that the
products are washed according to the instructions on the
garment label and those issued by the manufacturer of this
washing machine (M1135)
Wash & Dry 45’: select programme 7 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 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.
Your washer-dryer could fail to work. Before contacting the Technical Assistance Centre (see “Assistance”), make sure that
the problem cannot be solved easily using the following list.
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.
• The ‘DELAY’ has been selected.
• The ‘CHILD LOCK’ is activated (see ‘The machine just ‘beeps’ when a programme or option is selected’ below).
The machine does not dry.
• Check the 2 sections above.
• The ‘DRYING’ 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 • The water inlet hose is kinked.
or ‘No Water, Check Supply’ is
• The water inlet hose is not connected to the water supply.
shown in the display window.
• 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 ‘START/PAUSE’ flashing orange.
• The Pump filter is blocked - (see Care & Maintenance).
• The drain hose is kinked.
• 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 time 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
• 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
• 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 machine is locked 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 it
back on again If the problem persists contact the Technical Assistance Service.
The machine smells.
• The machine requires a service wash. Run “Auto Clean” wash cycle with detergent and no laundry.
The machine door cannot be
• 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 (see Precautions & Tips).
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.
The word ‘DEMO ON’ appears intermittently in the display window
and the drum slowly turns.
• To exit, switch machine off, then press and hold ‘START/PAUSE’ and ‘ON/OFF’
buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds.
The machine just ‘beeps’ when a
programme or option is selected
(Child Lock Symbol is lit).
• Deactivate the Child Lock feature by pressing and holding in the ‘CHILD
LOCK’ button for 2 seconds.
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.
• 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
