Installation
Keep this instruction manual in a safe place for
future reference. Should the appliance be sold,
transferred or moved, make sure the instruction
manual accompanies the Washer-dryer to inform the
new owner as to its operation and features.
GB
Read these instructions carefully: they contain vital
information on installation, use and safety.
Unpacking and levelling
Unpacking
1. Unpack the Washer-dryer.
2. Check whether the Washer-dryer has been
damaged during transport. If this is the case, do not
install it and contact your retailer.
3. Remove the four
protective screws and
the rubber washer with
the respective spacer,
situated on the rear of
the appliance (see
figure).
4. Seal the gaps using the plastic plugs provided.
5. Use the plug provided to seal the three holes
where the plug was housed, situated on the lower
right-hand side on the rear of your appliance.
6. Keep all the parts: you will need them again if the
Washer-dryer needs to be moved to another
location.
Packaging materials are not children's toys.
Levelling your appliance correctly will provide it with
stability and avoid any vibrations, noise and shifting
during operation. If it is placed on a fitted or loose
carpet, adjust the feet in such a way as to allow
enough room for ventilation beneath the Washerdryer.
Electric and water connections
Connecting the water inlet hose
1. Connect the supply
pipe to the water mains
using a gas 3/4
attachment, fitting the
rubber gasket and the
filter supplied with the
appliance and ensuring
that they are fimly
tightened to the taps.
The water supply marked
C must be connected to the cold water tap; the pipe
marked H must be connected to the hot water tap.
Both pipes may be connected to the cold water tap
using the special Y connection with multiple
attachments, supplied with the appliance (see figure).
Before making the connection, allow the water to run
freely until it is perfectly clear.
2. Connect the other end
of the water inlet hose to
the Washer-dryer,
screwing it onto the
appliance's cold water
inlet, situated on the top
right-hand side on the
rear of the appliance
(see figure).
Levelling
1. Install the Washer-dryer on a flat sturdy floor,
without resting it up against walls, furniture cabinets
or other.
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 according to
the worktop, must not
exceed 2°.
2
3. Make sure there are no kinks or bends in the
hose.
The water pressure at the tap must be within the
values indicated in the Technical details table
(on the next page).
If the water inlet hose is not long enough, contact
a specialist store or an authorised serviceman.

Precautions and advice
General safety
• This appliance has been designed for nonprofessional, household use and its functions must
not be changed.
• Never touch the washing machine when barefoot
or with wet or damp hands or feet.
• Do not open the detergent dispenser while the
appliance is in operation.
• Do not touch the drain water as it could reach
very high temperatures.
• In the event of a malfunction, do not under any
circumstances touch internal parts in order to
attempt repairs.
• The appliance door tends to get quite hot during
the wash cycle.
• Before loading your laundry into the washing
machine, make sure the drum is empty.
• 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.
• This washer-dryer can only be used to dry clothes
which have been pre-washed in water.
• Treating stains with a stain remover or leaving
them to soak before washing will cut down the
need to wash them at high temperatures. A
programme at 60°C instead of 90°C or one at
40°C instead of 60°C will save up to 50% on
energy.
• Use the correct quantity of detergent depending
on the water hardness, how soiled the garments
are and the amount of laundry you have, to avoid
wastage and to protect the environment: despite
being biodegradable, detergents do contain
ingredients that alter the natural balance of the
environment. In addition, avoid using fabric
softener as much as possible.
• If you use your washing machine from late in the
afternoon until the early hours of the morning, you
will help reduce the electricity board's peak load.
The Delay Timer option (see page 7) helps to
organise your wash cycles accordingly.
• If your laundry has to be dried in a tumble dryer,
select a high spin speed. Having the least water
possible in your laundry will save you time and
energy in the drying process.
Service
• Make sure that the water tap is turned on during
the drying cycles.
• The pre-wash cycle is only necessary on
extremely soiled garments. Avoiding it will save on
detergent, time, water and between 5 and 15%
energy.
Troubleshooting
• During the drying phase, the door tends to get
quite hot.
Saving on detergent, water,
energy and time
• To avoid wasting resources, the Washer-dryer
should be used with a full load. A full load instead
of two half loads allows you to save up to 50% on
energy.
Care
• Should it have to be moved, proceed with the
help of two or three people and handle it with the
utmost care. Never try to do this alone, because
the appliance is very heavy.
Environmentally-friendly technology
If you only see a little water through your appliance
door, this is because thanks to the latest Indesit
technology, your washing machine only needs less
than half the amount of water to get the best
results: an objective reached to respect the
environment.
Precautions
• Always keep children well away from the
appliance while in operation.
Saving energy and respecting the
environment
Detergents
• Never force the washing machine door: this could
damage the safety lock mechanism designed to
prevent any accidental openings.
• Disposing of an old Washer-dryer:
before scrapping your appliance, cut the power
supply cable and remove the appliance door.
Programmes
• Do not pull on the power supply cable to unplug
the appliance from the electricity socket. Pull the
plug out yourself.
GB
• Disposing of the packaging material:
observe local regulations, so the packaging can
be re-used.
Description
• This washing machine should only be used by
adults and in accordance with the instructions
provided in this manual.
Disposal
Installation
The Washer-dryer was designed and built in
compliance with the applicable international safety
regulations. The following information is provided for
your safety and should consequently be read carefully.

Care and maintenance
Cutting off the water or electricity
supply
GB
• Turn off the water tap after every wash. This will
limit the wear of your appliance's water system
and also prevent leaks.
• Unplug your appliance when cleaning it and
during all maintenance operations.
Cleaning your appliance
The exterior and rubber parts of your appliance can
be cleaned with a soft cloth soaked in lukewarm
soapy water. Do not use solvents or abrasives.
Cleaning the detergent dispenser
Remove the dispenser
by raising it and pulling it
out (see figure).
Wash it under running
water; this operation
should be repeated
frequently.
Cleaning the pump
The Washer-dryer is fitted with a self-cleaning pump
that does not require any maintenance. Sometimes,
small items (such as coins or buttons) may fall into
the pre-chamber that protects the pump, situated in
the lower part of the same.
Make sure the wash cycle has ended and unplug
the appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. using a screwdriver,
remove the cover panel
on the lower front of the
Washer-dryer (see
figure);
2. unscrew the lid
rotating it anticlockwise (see figure): a
little water may trickle
out. This is perfectly
normal;
Caring for your appliance door and
drum
• Always leave the appliance door ajar to prevent
unpleasant odours from forming.
3. clean the interior 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 water inlet hose at least once a year. If
you see any cracks, replace it immediately: during
the wash cycles, water pressure is very strong and
a cracked hose could easily split open.
Never use hoses that have already been used.
10
Troubleshooting
Your Washer-dryer could fail to work. Before calling for Assistance (see page 12), make sure the problem can't
easily be solved by consulting the following list.
•
•
•
•
•
•
The water inlet hose is not connected to the tap.
The hose is bent.
The water tap is not turned on.
There is a water shortage.
The water pressure is insufficient.
The START/RESET button has not been pressed.
The washer-dryer continuously
loads and unloads water.
• The drain hose is not fitted between 65 and 100 cm from the floor
(see page 3).
• The free end of the hose is underwater (see page 3).
• The wall drainage system doesn't have a breather pipe.
If the problem persists even after these checks, turn off the water tap,
switch the appliance off and call for Assistance. If the dwelling is on one of
the upper floors of a building, there may be drain trap problems causing the
Washer-dryer to load and unload water continuously. In order to avoid such
an inconvenience, special anti-drain trap valves are available in shops.
The washer-dryer does not
drain or spin.
• The programme does not foresee the draining: some programmes
require enabling the draining manually (see page 6).
• The Easy iron option is enabled: to complete the programme, press
the START/RESET button (see page 7).
• The drain hose is bent (see page 3).
• The drain duct is clogged.
The washer-dryer vibrates too
much during the spin cycle.
• The drum was not unblocked correctly during installation (see page 2).
• The Washer-dryer is not level (see page 2).
• The Washer-dryer is closed in between furniture cabinets and
the wall (see page 2).
The washer-dryer leaks.
• The water inlet hose is not screwed on correctly (see page 2).
• The detergent dispenser is obstructed (to clean it, see page 10).
• The drain hose is not secured properly (see page 3).
The ON-OFF/DOOR LOCK Led

time as at least one other LED.
• Call for Assistance because this means there is an abnormality.
There is too much foam.
• The detergent is not suitable for machine washing (it should bear
the definition "for washing machines" or "hand and machine wash",
or the like).
• You used too much detergent.
The washer-dryer does not dry.
•
•
•
•
•
The appliance is not plugged into the socket, or not enough to make contact.
There has been a power failure.
