! 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.
!Read these instructions carefully: they contain
vital information on installation, use and safety.
Unpacking and levelling
Unpacking
! This is a separate
part of the polystyrene
base and should be
removed with the
base.
! IMPORTANT check
when unpacking
your machine.
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 4
protective screws and
the rubber bush with
the respective spacer,
situated on the rear of
the appliance (see also
the installation leaflet).
4. Seal the gaps
using the plastic plugs
provided.
5. 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 machine may make a considerable
amount of noise if the two front feet have not
been adjusted correctly.
1. Install the washerdryer on a flat sturdy
floor, without resting
it up against walls,
cabinets or anything
else.
2. If the floor is
not perfectly level,
compensate for any
2
unevenness by tightening or loosening the
adjustable front feet (see figure); the angle
of inclination, measured according to the
worktop, must not exceed 2°.
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 washer-dryer.
Electric and water connections
Connecting the water inlet hose
1. Connect the supply
pipe by screwing it to
a cold water tap using
a 3/4 gas threaded
connection (see
figure).
Before performing 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 washerdryer, screwing it onto
the appliance’s cold
water inlet, situated
on the top right-hand
side on the rear of the
appliance (see figure).
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 page 5).
! If the water inlet hose is not long enough,
contact a specialist store or an authorised
serviceman.
! Ensure that the supply taps are allowing
water through. Old taps may seize in the
closed position and thus prevent water
reaching the machine.
! Never use second-hand or old inlet hoses;
use the products 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
Before plugging the appliance into the mains
socket, make sure that:
•the socket is earthed and in compliance with
the applicable law;
•the socket is able to sustain the appliance’s
maximum power load indicated on the
Technical Data Plate fixed on the machine;
• the supply voltage is included within the

Care and maintenance
GB
Cutting off the water and electricity
supplies
Caring for the door and drum of
your appliance
•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.
•Always leave the porthole door ajar in order
to prevent unpleasant odours from forming.
•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
s o f t c l o t h s o aked 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
A
press button A 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.
Cleaning the pump
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.
! Make sure the wash cycle has finished and
unplug the appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. using a
screwdriver, remove
the cover panel on
the lower front part of
the washer-dryer (see
figure);
Cleaning the detergent dispenser
drawer
2. unscrew the lid
by rotating it anticlockwise (see figure):
a little water may
trickle out. This is
perfectly normal;
Remove the dispenser
by raising it and pulling
it out (see figure).
Wash it under running
water; this operation
should be repeated
frequently.
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.

How to run a wash cycle or a
drying cycle
GB
1. SWITCH THE MACHINE ON. Press the
button; the
START/PAUSE indicator light will flash slowly in a green
colour.
2. LOAD THE LAUNDRY. Open the porthole door. Load
the laundry, making sure you do not exceed the maximum
load value indicated in the table of programmes and wash
cycles on the following page.
3. MEASURE OUT THE DETERGENT. Pull out the
detergent dispenser drawer and pour the detergent into
the relevant compartments as described in “Detergents
and laundry”.
4. CLOSE THE DOOR.
5. SELECT THE WASH CYCLE. Use the WASH CYCLE
SELECTOR knob to select the desired wash cycle. A
temperature and spin speed is set for each wash cycle;
these values may be adjusted. The duration of the cycle will
appear on the display.
6. CUSTOMISE THE WASH CYCLE. Use the relevant buttons:
Modify the temperature and/or spin speed. The
machine automatically displays the maximum temperature
and spin speed values set for the selected cycle, or the
most recently-used settings if they are compatible with
the selected cycle. The temperature can be decreased by
pressing the
button, until the cold wash “OFF” setting
is reached. The spin speed may be progressively reduced
by pressing the
button, until it is completely excluded
(the “OFF” setting). If these buttons are pressed again, the
maximum values are restored.
Setting the drying cycle
The first time the button
is pressed, the machine will
automatically select the maximum drying cycle which is
compatible with the selected wash cycle. Subsequent
presses will decrease the drying level and then the drying
time, until the cycle is excluded completely (“OFF”).
Drying may be set as follows:
A- Based on the desired laundry dryness level:
Iron “A1”: suitable for clothes which will need ironing
afterwards. the remaining dampness softens creases,
making them easier to remove.
Hanger “A2”: ideal for clothes which do not need to be
dried fully.
Cupboard “A3”: suitable for laundry which can be put
back in a cupboard without being ironed.
Extra “A4”: suitable for garments which need to be dried
completely, such as sponges and bathrobes.
B - Based on a set time period: between 30 and 180
minutes.
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 (12-13-14)
in accordance with the type of fabric. The desired drying level or
time may also be set using the DRYING button
.
10
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 “A2” dryness level.
Set the desired wash intensity.
Option
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 until the
“Intensive” level is reached. This level ensures a highperformance 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 until the “Delicate” level
is reached. The cycle will reduce drum rotation to ensure
washing results that are perfect for delicate garments.
Modify the cycle settings.
• Press the button to enable the option; the indicator light
corresponding to the button will switch on.
• Press the button again to disable the option; the
indicator light will switch off.
! If the selected option is not compatible with the set wash
cycle, the indicator light will flash and the option will not be
activated.
! If the selected option is not compatible with a previously
selected one, the indicator light corresponding to the first
function selected will flash and only the second option will
be activated; the indicator light for the option which has been
activated will be illuminated.
! The options may affect the recommended load value and/
or the duration of the cycle.
7. START THE WASH CYCLE. Press the START/PAUSE
button. The corresponding indicator light will turn green,
remaining lit in a fixed manner, and the door will be locked (the
DOOR LOCKED
symbol will be lit). To change a wash
cycle while it is in progress, pause the washer-dryer using the
START/PAUSE button (the START/PAUSE indicator light will
flash slowly in an amber colour); then select the desired cycle
and press the START/PAUSE button again. To open the door
while a cycle is in progress, press the START/PAUSE button; if
the DOOR LOCKED
symbol is switched off the door may
be opened. Press the START/PAUSE button again to restart
the wash cycle from the point at which it was interrupted.
8. THE END OF THE WASH CYCLE. This will be indicated
by the text “END” on the display; when the DOOR LOCKED
symbol switches off the door may be opened. Open the
door, unload the laundry and switch off the machine.
! If you wish to cancel a cycle which has already begun, press
and hold the

Eco
The Eco option 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.
Delay Timer
To set a delayed start for the selected cycle, press the
corresponding button repeatedly until the required delay
period has been reached. When this option is enabled, the
corresponding indicator light will remain lit. To remove the
delayed start setting, press the button until the text “OFF”
appears on the display.

Detergents and laundry
GB
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; they create too
much foam.

Open the detergent
dispenser drawer and pour
in the detergent or washing
additive, as follows.
! Do not pour detergent into
the middle compartment (*).
Detergent should only be
poured into the compartment 1.
compartment 1: Detergent for the wash cycle
(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 2: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)
The fabric softener should not overflow the grid.
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
Anti Stain: the programme 1 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. Pretreatment with special additives is recommended if there are
obstinate stains.
Whites: use this cycle 2 to wash white clothes. The
programme is designed to maintain the brightness of white
clothes over time. Use powder detergent for best results.
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
12
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.
Anti Allergy: use programme 7 to remove major allergens
such as pollen, mites, cat’s and dog’s hair.
Wool: the wool wash cycle on this Hotpoint machine has
been tested and approved by The Woolmark Company for
washing wool garments labelled as hand washable provided
that the garments are washed according to the instructions
on the garment label and those issued by the manufacturer
of this washing machine. Hotpoint is the first washing
machine brand to be approved by The Woolmark Company
for Apparel Care- Platinum for its washing performance and
consumption of energy and water. (M1127)
Delicates: use programme 9 to wash very delicate garments
with decorative features, such as diamantes and sequins.
To wash silk garments and curtains select the
cycle 9 and set the “Delicate” level from option
.
We recommend turning the garments inside out before washing
and placing small items into the special bag for washing delicates.
Use liquid detergent on delicate garments for best results.
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.
Ready to Wear: select programme 11 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.
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 washerdryer 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 machine does not fill with
water or ‘H20’ flashes 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 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.
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.
The appliance door is not shut properly.
A DELAY TIMER has been set.
DRYING is in the OFF position.

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 90 degree 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.
