INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your new Super Combo. In addition to its contemporary design,
this is a highly sophisticated engineered product that will give you many years
of satisfaction.
Here are some of the best reasons for buying your Combo
1. Sensor Dry
This function automatically selects the ideal level of dry cycle to make sure your clothes
are dried with the utmost perfection. Within the sensor dry, it also features Automatic
Dry Level that selects the preferred level of drying like high, normal, low or damp.
2. Easy Operation
This appliance is simple to use as a washer or as a dryer — or it can go seamlessly from
wash to the dry functions.
3. Convenience
This appliance can be permanently installed and be made portable with the installation
of the portability kit (sold separately) where needed.
4. Placement Options
The Washer-Dryer's sleek design makes it a perfect appliance for any Kitchen or
Laundry Room. Its compact size makes the Washer-Dryer perfect for placement on
each floor of your home.
5. Better Clothing Appearance
This Washer-Dryer has no agitator to damage your clothes so they look better and last
longer. The new refresh function keeps your clothes warm and fluffy always.
6. Water Savings
This appliance uses very little water for washing and drying and far less than a
standard full-size top-loading washer. The new automatic water level feature determines
the amount of water required on its own which also helps save water.
7. Energy Savings
This appliance is engineered to provide valuable energy savings when compared to
other washer-dryers. It is now equipped with LED display which adds to your energy savings.
8. Maintenance
Since the machine has a self-cleaning pump, this appliance needs no cleaning of lint
after drying. Instead, there is a convenient coin trap.
9. Space Savings
By combining the two functions of washer and dryer in one unit, the space taken for the
second unit, i.e. separate dryer, is saved.
10. Flexible venting option
With the option to change from a Condensing Dry system to a Vented Dry, you can decide
on the ideal dry system depending on availability of a venting outlet.
11. Improved Operation
With an improved high spin speed of 1200 rpm, more water is extracted, allowing improved
dry times.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Your safety and that of your children
Your Combo Washer-Dryer has been built in compliance with safety regulations,
to protect you and all your family.
WARNING - To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when
using your appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following:
Read all instructions before using the appliance.
2. Do not wash or dry articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, or spotted with
gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, other flammable or explosive substances, as they emit vapors
that could ignite or explode.
3. Do not allow children to play on or in the appliance. Close supervision of children is necessary
when the appliance is used near children.
Before the appliance is removed from service or discarded, remove the door.
Do not reach into the appliance if the tub or drum is moving.
Do not install or store this appliance where it will be exposed to the weather.
Do not tamper with controls.
© м о о Ls
Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance or attempt any servicing unless specifically
recommended in the user-maintenance instructions or in published user-repair instructions that
you understand and have skills to carry out.
9. Do not add gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances to the
wash water. These substances give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
10. Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not
been used for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has
not been used for such a period, before using a washing machine or combination washer-dryer,
turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will
release any accumulated Hydrogen.
11. Do not use fabric softeners or products to reduce static unless recommended by the
manufacturers of the fabric softener product.
12. Do not use heat to dry articles containing foam rubber or similarly textured rubber-like
materials.
13. Check the Coin Trap every few months to remove any coins, buttons or similar size objects.
14. For vented washer-dryers keep the exhaust opening and surrounding areas free from
accumulation of lint, dust, and dirt.
15. Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer. Item contaminated with cooking oils
may contribute to a chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR WASHER DRYER EFFICIENCY
1. Your Washer-Dryer spins at a high 1200 rpm spin speed, which will extract more water
especially from absorbent fabrics and reduce the degree of dampness as the machine goes into
the drying mode. This will cut down on your drying time.
2. FABRIC SOFTENER: After the wash cycle, the clothes can get stuck to the sides of the drum.
USING LIQUID FABRIC SOFTENER WILL CAUSE THE CLOTHES TO UNSTICK IMMEDIATELY
AND TUMBLE IN THE DRY CYCLE. THIS HELPS DRY CLOTHES FASTER AND CAUSES LESS
WRINKLES.
3. OVERLOADING: The drum has a capacity of 13 Ibs (1.57 cu.ft). The drum should be loaded
only to the 2/3rd of its capacity otherwise it reduces air flow and causes increase in dry time.
4. OVER DRYING: The condensing dryer uses cold water is used to condense the moisture from
the hot air. Since there is no external exhaust system, the moisture remains in the machine.
Frequently, when it seems the clothes are damp, it is actually the remaining moisture (like dew). Take
clothes out and within a few minutes they will be dry. Do not over dry the clothes. The exhaust system
uses air-dry.
5. USE HIGH EFFICIENCY (HE) DETERGENT: By using High Efficiency (HE) detergent, you are
preventing suds from entering the condensing chamber. When suds enter the condensing
chamber, the particles can clog up the chamber and the fan blower. Over time, this reduces
drying efficiency and may require the fan blower (impeller) to be cleaned. For this and all other front
-loading/horizontal-axis units, High Efficiency (HE) detergents go a long way to improve the efficiency of
the units.
6. SORTING: When sorting laundry always take into consideration the quantity and type of fabric contained
in the load. Highly absorbent fabrics such as those used in towels or jeans will absorb more water
and become very heavy when saturated. If you notice that your clothes are taking longer than
usual to dry you may be overloading the machine, or washing too many highly absorbent articles
for a single load.
PRE-INSTALLATION
1. The unit must be installed on a strong level floor, and in protected, dry, and well-ventilated area
close to a power and water supply of sufficient capacity, and a sufficient outlet.
2. Installation on Carpet or Wood increases vibrations.
» Carpets — place on light carpet only.
* Wood — brace floor with screws and place additional sheets of plywood before installation.
3. This unit's installation and grounding should be done in accordance with local codes by a qualified
installer. “Installation Instructions” are included in this manual for the Installer’s reference.
4. The unit should be plugged into a properly grounded three (3) prong electrical outlet of 110V/60Hz
with minimum 15 Amps, It should not be controlled by a wall switch or pull cord which might be
turned off accidentally.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Handling
Please handle the machine carefully and use
appropriate means while lifting and moving the machine
so that it does not get damaged. Do not drag the
machine to avoid damage to your flooring and also to the
machine. Do not hold on to protruding parts when lifting.
Disposing of the packaging
The shipping package has protected your new washing
machine on its way to your home. All packaging
materials are non-polluting and recyclable. Please
contribute to a better environment by disposing of
packaging materials in an environmentally conscious
manner.
A DANGER A
Keep children away from shipping carton and
packaging components. Danger of suffocation
from plastic foil and folding cartons.
Disposing of your old appliance
Old appliances are not worthless trash! Valuable raw
materials can be recycled from old appliances.
To prevent children from locking themselves in the
appliance, disable the door lock or remove the door.
Factory-supplied equipment
Inside the drum there is a packet of accessory parts
supplied with your washer. Check that all the accessory
parts supplied for your model are there. If any parts are
missing contact your dealer.
Any residual moisture inside the drum is due to the final
testing which every washing machine undergoes before
leaving the factory.
Installation area
A DANGER A
Appliance stability is very important otherwise
the washing machine could “wander” during
the spin cycles
The installation area must be solid and even. Soft floor
surfaces, such as carpets or surfaces with foam backing,
are not suitable.
A DANGER A
Do not install the washing machine outdoors or in an
area exposed to freezing conditions. Frozen hoses can
tear/burst.
If the washing machine is located in a room which will be
exposed to temperatures below freezing point, or if it is
located in a cabin that is being shut down for the winter,
any residual water in the pump or water inlet hoses must
be drained.
Removing the shipping rods
A CAUTION A
The shipping rods must be removed before using
the appliance for the first time and must be
retained for any future transport(e.g. when
moving).
UNPACKING, LEVELING & POSITIONING
Remove the packing and check that the Washer-Dryer is undamaged. If you have any doubt,
do not use the Washer-Dryer and call Customer Service. Keep all packing parts (plastic bag,
foam rubber, screws, etc.) out of the reach of children since they could be dangerous.
Important: The inside of the Washer-Dryer consists of a free floating drum that is affixed
with shipping rods at the back of the cabinet (Fig.1) during transport. Before starting the
machine, remember to remove the shipping rods (Fig.2) Close the holes left open by the rods
with the plastic caps provided (Fig. 3).
It is important for the machine to be perfectly level. For this reason, the machine is fitted with
adjustable feet used for leveling the machine before use (Fig.4).

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR EXHAUST
A IMPORTANT: Installation and service must be performed by a qualified installer. Please have a
qualified service agent install your dryer.
NOTE: The WARNING and IMPORTANT instructions appearing in his manual are not meant to cover all
possible conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood that common sense and being
careful are factors that CANNOT be built into the dryer. These factors MUST BE supplied by the persons
installing, maintaining, or operating the dryer. This dryer comes ready for top exhausting.
WARNINGS
DUE TO RISK OF FIRE USE ONLY METALLIC DUCT (RIGID OR FLEXIBLE).
Never use flexible duct inside the dryer.
Do not terminate exhaust in a chimney, range hood, gas vent, floor or attic. The combination of lint
and grease could create a fire hazard or damages.
Provide an access for inspection and cleaning the exhaust system at least once a year.
EXHAUST SYSTEM CHECK LIST HOOD or WALL CAP
Terminate in a manner to prevent back drain or entry of birds or other wildlife.
Termination should present minimal resistance to the exhaust air flow and should require little or no
maintenance to prevent clogging.
Wall caps must be installed at least 12” (30 cm) above ground level or any other obstruction with the
opening pointed down.
If roof vents or louvered plenums are used, they must be equivalent to a 4” (10 cm) dampened wall
cap in regard to resistance to air flow. Prevention of back drafts and regular maintenance are required
to prevent clogging.
11
SEPARATION OF TURNS
Separate all turns by at least 3ft. (Im) of straight duct, including distance between last turn and
dampened wall cap. If two turns must be closer than 3ft. (1m) deduct 10ft. (3m) from the maximum
lengths shown in the table for each occurrence.
TURNS OTHER THAN 90°
One turn of 45*or less may be ignored.
Two 45*turns should be treated as one 90*

1. When putting antifreeze into the water system of your coach, set the washer to the NORMAL
wash setting and allow water to flow into unit until antifreeze is detected.
2. Turn off Power. Set the washer knob to the “Rinse” position and allow water to flow for 10
seconds.
3. Turn off Power. Set the washer knob on “Spin” to remove the majority of the water from
the unit.
