Your machine may make a considerable amount of
noise if the two front feet have not been adjusted
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°.
Levelling your appliance correctly will provide it with

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.
! Ensure that the supply taps are allowing water
through. Old taps may seize in the closed position
and thus prevent water reaching the machine.
Connecting the drain hose
65 - 100 cm
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 supply voltage is included within the values
indicated on the Technical details table
(see page 5);
_ the socket is compatible with the washing
machine's plug. If this is not the case, replace
the socket or the plug.

If your laundry load to be washed and dried is much greater than the maximum stated load (see adjacent
table), 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.
N.B.: when the drying is complete there is a cooling period, even though the DRYING button is in the 0 position.
Drying only
Turn the WASH CYCLE knob to one of the drying settings (11-12-13) according to the type of fabric, then
select the desired drying duration using the DRYING button.
The various wash functions available with this Washer-dryer will help to achieve the desired results, every time.
To activate the functions:

This option is enabled with all programmes.
Mini Load
This function is recommended for when the load of laundry is equal to half, or less than half, of the maximum
recommended load (see Table of wash cycles).
This function may not be used in conjunction with wash cycles 5, 8, 11, 12, 13, B, C.
Super Wash
Because a greater quantity of water is used in the initial phase of the cycle, and because of the increased
cycle duration, this function offers a high-performance wash.
This function may not be used in conjunction with wash cycles 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, A, B, C.
Slow Spin (1400-600)
By selecting this function, reduces the spin speed.
This function may not be used in conjunction with wash cycles 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, C.
Detergents and laundry
Detergent dispenser drawer
Garments requiring special care
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 a build up on the inside of your appliance
and contribute to environmental pollution.
Baby cycle: this wash cycle 6 can be used to
remove the soiling typically caused by babies, while
ensuring that all detergent is removed from
nappies in order to prevent the delicate skin of
babies from suffering allergies. The cycle has been
designed to reduce the amount of bacteria by using
a greater quantity of water and optimising the
effect of special disinfecting additives added to the
At the end of the wash cycle, the machine will slowly
rotate the drum to prevent the formation of
creases; to end the cycle press the START/PAUSE
Shirts: use special wash cycle 7 to wash shirts in
various fabrics and colours.
It guarantees maximum care is taken of the
garments and minimises the formation of creases.
Wool: Hotpoint is the only Washer-dryer
manufacturer to have been awarded the
prestigious Woolmark Platinum Care endorsement
(M.0508) by the Woolmark Company, which means
that all woollen garments may be washed in the
Washer-dryer, even those which state “hand wash
on the label. Wash cycle 9 therefore offers
complete peace of mind when washing woollen
garments in the Washer-dryer (max. load 1,5 kg) and
guarantees optimal performance.
Silk: use special wash cycle 10 to wash all silk
garments. We recommend the use of special detergent
which has been designed to wash delicate clothes.
Curtains: fold curtains and place them in a pillow
case or mesh bag. Use wash cycle 10.
! Do not use hand washing detergents because
these create too much foam.
Open the detergent
dispenser drawer and
pour in the detergent or
washing additive, as
! Do not pour detergent into the middle compartment (*).
Detergent should only be poured into the compartment 1.
compar tment 1: Detergent for the wash
cycle (powder or liquid)
For best results liquid detergent should be poured
in the dispenser immediately before the start of
the programme.
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
• Empty all garment pockets and check the buttons.
• Do not exceed the listed values, which refer to
the weight of the laundry when dry:
Durable fabrics: max. 7 kg
Synthetic fabrics: max. 3 kg
Delicate fabrics: max. 2 kg
Wool: max. 1,5 kg
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
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.
This function interrupts the wash programme, and
the washing is left to soak in water before the
appliance is drained. It can only be used with
programme 10 (Silk/Curtains) and helps to prevent
the formation of creases.
To complete the cycle press the START/PAUSE

Recycling & Disposal Information
As part of Hotpoint's continued commitment to helping the environment, Hotpoint reserves the right
to use quality, recycled components to keep down customer costs and minimise material wastage.
Please dispose of packaging and old appliances carefully. To minimise the risk of injury to children,
remove the door, plug and cut the mains cable off flush with the appliance. Dispose of these parts
separately to ensure that the appliance can no longer be plugged into a mains socket, and the door
cannot be locked shut.
