frayed or torn articles and treat stains such as paint,
ink, rust, and grass before washing. Underwired bras
must NOT be machine washed.
Any objects such as coins, safety pins, nails, screws,
stones or any other hard, sharp material can cause
extensive damage and must not be placed into the
machine.
Garments which have been in contact with volatile
petroleum products should not be machine washed.
If volatile cleaning fluids are used, care should be
taken to ensure that the fluid is removed from the
garment before placing in the machine.
Wash small items such as socks, laces, washable
belts etc in a washing bag or pillow case as it is
possible for such items to slip down between the tub
and the inner drum.
Only use the advised quantities of fabric softener.
Damage to the fabric can ensue if you over-fill.
Refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations of
quantities.
As some duvets and eiderdowns should be
washed/dried in large commercial machines because
of their bulk, please check with the manufacturer of
the item before washing in a domestic machine.
The users should always check that they have not
left their gas lighters (disposable or otherwise) in
their clothing.
Never tumble dry items that have had contact with
chemicals such as dry cleaning fluid.These are of a
volatile nature and could cause an explosion.
Only tumble dry items which have been washed in
water or require airing.
Plastic detergent dispensers should not remain in the
drum during the drying cycle, as the plastic used is
not designed to withstand the heat. If you wish to
wash-through-to-dry you should use the
conventional detergent dispenser drawer.

Your New Washer-Dryer
Your new washer-dryer meets all modern requirements for effective treatment of laundry with
low water, energy and detergent consumption.
It is gentle with your laundry, simple to use and easy to care for.
●
●
●
●
The special wool programme with its new delicate
wash system treats your woollens with extreme care.
The anti-unbalance device ensures that the
machine remains stable when spinning.
Automatic cooling of the wash water to 60°C
before draining, with the 90°C programme. This
reduces thermal shock to fabrics, helping to prevent
creasing.
The two drying programmes will give your wash
that soft, relaxed feel whatever the weather.
In the interest
of the environment
●
●
●
Ecological hints
●
To save water and energy and help protect the
environment, we recommend that you follow these
hints:
● Adjust the quantity of detergent according to the
hardness of your water supply, the amount of
laundry and the degree of soiling.
● A programme without prewash is sufficient for
normally soiled laundry.
● Try to load the maximum drying capacity of the
machine as small loads are uneconomical.
● Always load well spun laundry. The higher the spin
speed, the lower the electricity consumption and the
shorter the drying times.
Materials marked with the symbol
are
recyclable.
Check with your local Council or Environmental
Health Office to see if there are facilities in your area
for re-cycling this appliance.
When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the
power supply cable and make the door lock device
unusable to prevent young children from being
trapped inside.
Help to keep your country tidy - use authorised
disposal sites for your old appliance.
How do we help to protect the environment?
We use recycled paper!
Important
Your machine is fitted with a balance control device, which ensures the machine is stable during the spin.
If the wash load appears not to have been spun sufficiently at the end of the wash cycle, because it is not evenly
distributed in the drum, the balance control device may have operated. It will therefore be necessary to redistribute the
wash load manually and select a spin programme. For more detailed information see the section headed "Something
Not Working".

Load the laundry loosely alternating large items with
small ones.
Sort the laundry according to the type of fabric,
colour-fastness and how dirty it is.
Avoid washing unhemmed or torn items as they may
unravel.
Before washing, empty all pockets of small objects
which may have been left inside (coins, keys, screws
etc). as these could damage the drain pump.
When washing curtains, remove the hooks.
Close poppers and zips and fasten loose buttons.
It is essential to wash new coloured items separately
when washing for the first time.
When washing fabrics requiring different wash
temperatures together, always select the lowest
temperature.
White items should not be washed with coloured
items.
Very small items (handkerchiefs, ribbons, socks etc)
should be washed in a washing bag or a pillow case.
Use a good quality detergent suitable for automatic
washing machines.
Use the correct quantities of detergent.
For wool, use gentle detergent only in small
quantities.
Bleach is very corrosive; it should be used with care
and kept out of reach of children.
■
■
■
■
Some stains such as fruit, wine, grass, rust etc. are
difficult to remove and should be treated before
washing with specific products, which can be found
in most household shops. In some cases it may help
to soak the stain before washing with a special presoak product or biological detergent.
If you have used the machine to wash, rinse or spin
only non-colour fast garments, there may be dye left
in the sump. To ensure any subsequent wash is not
contaminated with the dye, select and carry out a
rinse and spin programme, without any garments, to
ensure that any dye is removed from the sump.
Do not leave the damp laundry load in a heap too
long before drying.
Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured fluffy
items such as towels as these can attract the fluff.
If you overdry the laundry, besides wasting energy,
any subsequent ironing may become more difficult
because the fabric could be heavily crumpled.
Remove the laundry when the appliance has finished
drying.
To avoid a static charge when drying is completed,
use either a fabric softener when you are washing the
laundry or a fabric conditioner specifically for
tumble dryers.
Particularly delicate items such as synthetic curtains,
woollen and silk, garments with metal inserts, nylon
stockings, bulky garments such as anoraks,
bedcovers, quilts, sleeping bags and duvets must not
be machine dried.
Garments padded with foam-rubber or materials
similar to foam-rubber must not be machine dried;
they represent a fire hazard.
Also, fabrics containing residues of setting lotions or
hair sprays, nail solvents or similar solutions must
not be machine dried in order to avoid the formation
of harmful vapours.
For drying, follow the indications given on the
manufacturer’s labels.
Drying at high temperature
Drying at reduced temperature
Do not tumble dry
Important:
As a dryer, the machine works on the condensation
principle.
Therefore, the water taps must be open and the
drain hose must drain water into a sink or into
the drain pipe, even during the drying cycle.

Which detergent?....
And in which form?
To ensure you obtain the best wash results from your
appliance, it is important to use the right detergent in
your everyday wash, and only detergents recommended
for use in automatic machines.
To maintain the appearance of your clothes and
household textiles and to make them last longer you
should use different types of detergent for different
washes, whether for whites, colours or delicates.
Not only are there different types of detergent, but they
are also available in different forms. Whether you chose
a powder or liquid in traditional or compact form is
your own personal choice.
TRADITIONAL POWDERS
Pour the powder directly into the dispenser drawer. Do
not sprinkle powder onto clothes in the machine drum.
TRADITIONAL LIQUIDS
WHITES
Liquid can be placed in the main wash compartment of
the detergent drawer marked with the symbol
, start
the machine immediately upon placing the
detergent in the dispenser drawer.
Alternatively the detergent is measured into the
specially designed dosing device* which should be
placed on top of the laundry, and at the back of the
machine drum.
We recommend the Ariel product
range which is biological and
designed to provide excellent
cleaning and stain removal even
at low temperatures.
NON BIOLOGICAL
If you prefer to use a non
biological detergent, which does
not contain enzymes we
recommend Fairy. Fairy provides
good cleaning and stain removal.
COMPACT POWDERS AND LIQUIDS
Compact detergents (or concentrates as they are also
known) are available in liquid or powder form, and
generally require a smaller dosage. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions to ensure the most
economical usage. Pour the detergent directly into the
dispenser drawer, or alternatively measure the detergent
into the specially designed dosing device* which
should be placed on top of the laundry, and at the back
of the machine drum.
COLOUREDS
For coloured items you should use a
detergent which is designed to clean
while maintaining the original colour.
Ariel Color does not contain bleach
and therefore helps to preserve
colours.
* If you use a dosing device in a washer dryer,
please ensure the dosing device/ball is removed
before carrying out a drying programme.
DELICATE ITEMS
FABRIC CONDITIONERS
When washing delicates such as
woollens, you should use a product
which is specially designed to care for
fine fabrics.
Dreft Automatic is suitable for
woollens and other delicates.
These are ideal for improving ‘softness’, and also
reduce static cling on synthetics and make ironing
easier. They are available in two types:
For example Lenor liquid fabric
softener, for use in the washing
machine/washer dryer. The
liquid fabric softener should be
poured into the compartment
marked with the symbol .
Follow the manufacturer’s dosage
instructions and never exceed the
MAX level.
LAUNDRY BLEACH
For additional stain removal you may
wish to use a product such as Ace
Gentle Bleach which is used in addition
to your chosen detergent. Ace is
suitable for all washable fabrics
including silks, woollens and coloureds.
Bounce conditioning sheets for use
in a tumble dryer. We recommend
the conditioning sheets are pinned
(using a safety pin) to an article
of laundry and placed in the
tumble dryer.

For best results, always use the dispenser drawer for
dispensing detergents and liquid additives.
Once the dispenser has been filled, close it by pushing it
in gently. This is particularly important if you are using

Maintenance and Cleaning
Cleaning the drawer recess
Before any maintenance or cleaning is carried out you
must DISCONNECT the appliance from the electricity
supply.
Having removed the drawer, use a small brush to clean
the recess, ensuring that all washing powder residue is
removed from the upper and lower part of the recess.
Replace the drawer and run the rinse programme
without any clothes in the drum.
Descaling
The water we use normally contains lime. It is a good
idea to periodically use a water softening powder in the
machine. Do this separately from any laundry washing,
and according to the softening powder manufacturer's
instructions. This will help to prevent the formation of
lime deposits.
After each wash
P0038
Leave the door open for a while. This helps to prevent
mould and stagnant smells forming inside the appliance.
Keeping the door open after a wash will also help to
preserve the door seal.
Cleaning the filter
The water drain filter
A clean filter is important for the correct operating of
the machine, and should therefore be cleaned after every
washing programme.
Open the filter door and place a container underneath to
catch any spillage. If the filter is blocked and the
machine is unable to drain you will need to drain the
water manually from the machine at this stage. To do
this, unhook the drain hose from the standpipe or sink
and hold the end of the hose over a bowl on the floor.
The water should drain by gravity into the bowl. When
the bowl is full, hook the hose back up and empty the
bowl. Repeat the procedure until water stops flowing
out.
External cleaning
Clean the exterior cabinet of the appliance with soap
and water only, and then dry thoroughly.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer
The washing powder and additive dispenser drawer
should be cleaned regularly.
Remove the drawer by pressing the catch downwards
and by pulling it out. Flush it out under a tap, to remove
any traces of accumulated powder.
To aid cleaning, the top part of the additive
compartment should be removed.

The dangers of freezing
Unscrew and remove the filter.
Clean carefully under a fast running tap.
P0133
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below 0°C,
certain precautions should be taken.
■ Turn off the water taps.
■ Unscrew the inlet hoses.
■ Unhook the drain hose from the rear support and
position the end of this hose and that of the inlet
hoses in a bowl. Run the draining programme.
■ Disconnect the appliance.
■ Screw the inlet hoses and reposition the drain hose.
■ When you intend to start the machine up again,
make sure that the room temperature is above 0°C.
P0040
Warning
When the appliance is in use and depending on the
programme selected there can be hot water in the filter.
Never remove the filter during a wash cycle, always
wait until the appliance has finished the cycle, and is
empty. When replacing the filter, ensure it is securely
retightened so as to stop leaks and young children being
able to remove it.
Maintenance Wash
With the use of low temperature washes it is possible to
get a build up of residues inside the drum.
We recommend that a maintenance wash be performed
on a regular basis.
To run a maintenance wash:
● The drum should be empty of laundry.
● Select the hottest cotton wash programme.
● Use a normal measure of detergent, must be a
powder (such as Ariel Futur).
The water inlet filters
If your water is very hard or contains traces of lime
deposit, the water inlet filters may become clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean them from time to
time.
Turn off the water taps. Unscrew the water inlet hoses.
Clean the filters using a hard bristle brush.
Tighten up the inlet hoses.

Something Not Working
Certain problems are due to lack of simple maintenance or oversights, which can be solved easily without calling out
an engineer. Before contacting your local Zanussi Service Force Centre, please carry out the checks listed below.
IMPORTANT: if you call out an engineer to a fault listed below, or to repair a fault caused by incorrect use or
installation, a charge will be made even if the appliance is under guarantee.

The door has not been closed.
The plug is not properly inserted in the power socket.
There is no supply at the socket
The main fuse or the fuse in the plug has blown.
The selector dial is not correctly positioned.
The ON/OFF button has not been depressed.
Ensure the water taps are open.
The filters in the inlet hoses are blocked.
The inlet hoses may be squashed or kinked.
The door has not been closed.
The end of the drain hose is too low.
The end of the drain hose is submerged in water.
There is no vent in the end of the drain hose.
The drain hose may be squashed or kinked.
The RINSE HOLD
or NO SPIN
option has been selected.
The drain filter may be blocked.
The drain hose extension, if fitted, is not correct. Follow the
instructions for connecting to the waste.
The drainage system pipes are blocked.
The wash load is unbalanced: redistribute the clothes inside the drum to
allow the machine to spin.
Too much detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used (creates too
much foam).
Check whether there are any leaks from one of the inlet hose(s) fittings.
It is not always easy to see this as the water runs down the hose; check
to see if it is damp.
The drain hose may be damaged or not securely positioned.
The detergent dispenser drawer or recess is clogged.
The drainage system pipes are blocked.
Too little detergent or unsuitable detergent has been used. An
insufficient amount of detergent leaves the laundry looking grey and
causes lime scale to form.
Stubborn stains have not been treated prior to washing
The correct wash programme has not been selected.
Too much laundry has been placed in the drum.
The internal packing has not been removed.
The machine is in contact with the wall or furniture.
The machine is not stable and level (check diagonally).
The washing load is badly distributed in the drum.
Maybe there is very little laundry in the drum.

Symptom
Possible causes
The door will not open
■
■
■
The programme is still running.
The door lock has not yet released.
Water in the tub: the door cannot be opened if water is present in the
tub.
Spinning starts late or the machine
does not spin
■
The electronic unbalance detection device has cut in because the
laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum. The laundry is
redistributed by reverse rotation of the drum. This may happen several
times before the unbalance disappears and normal spinning can resume.
If, after 10 minutes, the laundry is still not evenly distributed in the
drum, the machine will not spin. In this case, redistribute the load
manually and reselect the spin programme.
The machine makes an unusual
noise
■
The machine is fitted with a type of motor which makes an unusual
noise compared with other traditional motors. This new motor ensures
a softer start and more even distribution of the laundry in the drum
when spinning, as well as increased stability of the machine.
No water is visible in the drum
■
Machines based on modern technology operate very economically
using very little water without affecting performance.
The machine does not dry or does
not dry properly
■
The drying time has not been selected
The water taps are not turned on
The drain filter is clogged
The machine is overloaded
The selected drying time/section is not suitable for the laundry

Unpacking
Positioning
Install the machine on a flat hard floor.
Make sure that air circulation around the machine is not
impeded by carpets, rugs etc. Check that the machine
does not touch the wall or other kitchen units.
Never place cardboard, wood or similar materials under
the machine to compensate for any unevenness in the
floor.
Your new washing machine has been designed to be
permanently plumbed in to your home’s water supply
and drainage system. However, if this is not possible, it
may be connected to suitable existing taps with the drain
hose discharging into a sink.
The appliance has two inlet hoses, hot and cold, with
female 3/4” BSP thread connectors. If this connection is
not compatible with the plumbing of the existing
installation, a variety of connectors are available from
good hardware stores and plumbers merchants to suit
most domestic plumbing. Any alteration to your existing
plumbing must be carried out by a competent person, or
qualified plumber.
All transit bolts and packing must be removed
before using the appliance.
You are advised to keep all the packaging for re-use in
case the machine is to be transported again.
Using a spanner unscrew and remove the rear right bolt.
Lay the machine gently on its back, making sure that the
hoses are not squashed.

Remove the polystyrene block from the bottom of the
machine.
Carefully slide out the right polythene bag (1).
Repeat the operation for the left polythene bag (2).

Installation on a Suspended Floor
Suspended wooden floors are particularly susceptible to
vibration. To help prevent vibration we recommend you
place a waterproof wood panel, at least 15 mm thick
under the appliance, secured to at least 2 floor beams
with screws. If possible install the appliance in one of
the corners of the room, where the floor is more stable.

Remove the polystyrene base.
Set the machine upright and remove the two remaining
bolts from the back.
Pull out the three plastic spacers from the holes into
which the bolts were fitted.
Plug all the holes with the plugs which you can find in
the envelope containing the instruction booklet.
The inlets on the back of the appliance are colour coded,
blue for cold and red for hot.
Connect the hoses to a tap with a 3/4” thread.

If only a cold water supply is available, connect the two
hoses to a cold water outlet by means of a «Y»
connection piece.
Installation should comply with local water authority
and building regulations’ requirements.
The appliance must be given a separate cold water
supply and not be connected to a mixer tap, a single
outlet water heater or a booster pump. A minimum
water pressure of 0.48 bar is required for safe operation
of the appliance.
When discharging into a standpipe ensure that the top of
the curve in the hose end is no more than 90cm (35.4'')
and no less than 60cm (23.6'') above floor level. The
upright standpipe should have a minimum length of
30cm (12'') from the bottom of the elbow to the top of
the pipe (see diagram).
Make sure that it is designed in such a way, that the end
of the drain hose cannot be covered with water.
3 pin
Max. 90 cm.(35.4")
If you cannot make the cold water connection direct
from the rising mains, you may be able to operate the
appliance from your cold water storage system.
There should be a minimum distance of 5.02m
(16.5 ft) between the appliance’s inlet and the bottom of
the water storage tank.
There will be sufficient pressure for the hot water
supply, providing there is a minimun height of 2.74
metres (9 ft) between the bottom of the cold water
storage tank and the bottom of the hot water cylinder.
Set the hoses correctly by loosening the ring nuts. After
positioning the inlet hoses, be sure to tighten the ring
nuts again to prevent leaks.

The drain hose may be extended to a maximum of 4
metres. An additional drain hose and joining piece
is available from your local Service Force Centre.
The joining piece must have an internal diameter of
18mm.
If you intend the drain hose to empty into a sink, make
sure that the sink is empty and the plug hole is not
blocked. Use the plastic “U-Piece” supplied.

Important
This appliance is designed to be permanently plumbed
into your home's water supply and drainage system.
The appliance drain hose should hook into a standpipe,
the hook in the drain hose is formed using the plastic
“U-Piece” supplied.
The standpipe should have an internal diameter of
approximately 38mm (see diagram) thus ensuring there
is an air break between the drain hose and standpipe.
Before connecting up the machine to new pipework or
to pipework that has not been used for some time, run
off a reasonable amount of water to flush out any debris
that may have collected in the pipes.

Levelling
In the interest of the
environment
Level the washing machine by raising or lowering the
feet. The feet may be tight to adjust as they incorporate
a self locking nut, but the machine MUST be level and
stable.
Washing machines and dishwashers should be
connected to the FOUL drainage system, the water will
then be taken to a sewage works for treatment before
being discharged safely into a river.
It is essential that these appliances are not connected to
the surface water drainage system as this water is
discharged directly into a river or stream and may cause
pollution.
If you require any further advice please contact your
local water authority.
P1051
Any necessary adjustment can be made with a spanner.
Accurate levelling prevents vibration, noise and
displacement of the machine during operation.
Some vibration is inevitable, especially if mounted on a
wooden floor.
Sprung wooden floors are particularly susceptible to
vibration. For advice, consult a builder. If possible,
always place the machine on a solid floor.
SHOWER

Special conditions
If the floor is carpeted or covered with crumbly or soft
material, insert a rigid support base under the feet to
prevent noise, vibration or displacement. The base
should protrude a few centimetres beyond the edges of
the machine.
