making them easier to remove.
Knitwear, Pullovers, etc.
Hanger dry : ideal for clothes which do not need to
be dried fully.
Cupboard dry : suitable for laundry which can be put back in
a cupboard without being ironed.
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.
Drying only
Use the cycle selector knob to select a drying cycle (11-12-13) in accordance with the type of fabric. The desired
drying level or time may also be set using the DRYING button.
The various wash functions available with this waher-dryer will help to achieve the desired results, every time.
To activate the functions:
1. Press the button corresponding to the desired function;
2. the function is enabled when the corresponding indicator light is illuminated.
Note: If the indicator light flashes rapidly, this signals that this particular function may not be selected in
conjunction with the selected wash cycle.

Cool Wash
The Cool Wash function 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.
It cannot be used in conjunction with wash cycles 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, , , .

This function may not be used in conjunction with wash cycles 9, 11, 12, 13,
Detergents and laundry
Detergent dispenser drawer
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 cause build up on the inside of your appliance and
contribute to environmental pollution.
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 follows.
compartment A: Detergent for the wash cycle
(powder or liquid)
Liquid detergent should only be poured in immediately
prior to the start of the wash cycle.
compartment B: Additives (fabric softeners,
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 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
Silk: max. 1 kg
How much does your laundry weigh?
sheet 400-500 g
pillow case 150-200 g
tablecloth 400-500 g
bathrobe 900-1200 g
towel 150-250 g
Garments requiring special care
Jeans: turn the garments inside out before washing
and use liquid detergent. Use wash cycle 5.
Shirts: use special wash cycle 6 to wash shirts in
various fabrics and colours.
It guarantees maximum care is taken of the garments
and minimises the formation of creases.
Mix Cool 30’: this wash cycle was designed to wash
lightly soiled garments quickly: it lasts just 30 minutes
and therefore saves both energy and time. By selecting
wash cycle 7, it is possible to wash different fabrics
(except for wool and silk items) using a cold cycle, up to
a maximum load of 3 kg.
Wool: wash cycle 8 can be used to wash all woollen
garments in the machine, even those carrying the “hand
label. To achieve the best results, use a
wash only”
special detergent and do not exceed the maximum load
of 1,5 kg.
Delicates: use special wash cycle 9 to wash all silk
garments. We recommend the use of special detergent
which has been designed to wash delicate clothes.
Curtains:we recommend you fold the curtains and place
them in a pillow case or mesh bag. Use wash cycle 9.
Sport Shoes (wash cycle 10): is for washing sports
shoes; for best results, do not wash more than 2 pairs
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 waher-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.
Precautions and tips
This washer-dryer was designed and constructed in
accordance with international safety regulations. The
following information is provided for safety reasons and
must therefore be read carefully.
• Do not use the appliance to dry foam rubber or
similar elastomers.
• Make sure that the water tap is turned on during
the drying cycles.
General safety
• This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory
or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning use of the
appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they
do not play with the appliance.
• Do not dry unwashed items in the tumble dryer.
Items that have been soiled with substances such as
cooking oil, acetone, alcohol, petrol, kerosene, spot
removers, turpentine, waxes and wax removers
should be washed in hot water with an extra amount
of detergent before being dried in the tumble dryer.
Items such as foam rubber (latex foam), shower
caps, waterproof textiles, rubber backed articles
and clothes or pillows fitted with foam rubber pads
should not be dried in the tumble dryer.
Fabric softeners, or similar products, should be
used as specified by the fabric softener instructions.
The final part of a tumble dryer cycle occurs without
heat (cool down cycle) to ensure that the items are
left at a temperature that ensures that the items will
not be damaged.
WARNING: Never stop a tumble dryer before the end
of the drying cycle unless all items are quickly removed
and spread out so that the heat is dissipated.
• This appliance was designed for domestic use only.
• Do not touch the machine when barefoot or with wet
or damp hands or feet.
• Do not pull on the power supply cable when
unplugging the appliance from the electricity socket.
Hold the plug and pull.
• Do not open the detergent dispenser drawer while the
machine is in operation.
• Do not touch the drained water as it may reach
extremely high temperatures.
• Never force the porthole door. This could damage the safety
lock mechanism designed to prevent accidental opening.
• If the appliance breaks down, do not under any
circumstances access the internal mechanisms in an
attempt to repair it yourself.
• Always keep children well away from the appliance
while it is operating.
• The door can become quite hot during the wash cycle.
• If the appliance has to be moved, work in a group of
two or three people and handle it with the utmost
care. Never try to do this alone, because the
appliance is very heavy.
• Before loading laundry into the washer-dryer, make
sure the drum is empty.
• During the drying phase, the door tends to get quite hot.
• Do not use the appliance to dry clothes that have
been washed with flammable solvents (e.g.
• Disposing of the packaging materials:
observe local regulations so that the packaging may
be re-used.
• The European Directive 2002/96/EC relating to Waste
Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) states
that household appliances should not be disposed of
using the normal solid urban waste cycle. Exhausted
appliances should be collected separately in order to
optimise the cost of re-using and recycling the
materials inside the machine, while preventing
potential damage to the atmosphere and to public
health. The crossed-out dustbin is marked on all
products to remind the owner of their obligations
regarding separated waste collection.
For more information relating to the correct disposal of
household appliances, owners should contact their
local authorities or appliance dealer.
Opening the porthole door manually
In the event that it is not possible to open the porthole
door due to a powercut, and if you wish to remove the
laundry, proceed as follows:
1. Remove the plug from the
electrical socket..
2. Make sure the water level
inside the machine is lower
than the door opening; if it is
not, remove excess water
using the drain hose,
collecting it in a bucket as
indicated in the figure.
3. Remove the cover panel on the lower front part of the
washer-dryer (see overleaf).
4. Pull outwards using the tab as indicated in the figure,
until the plastic tie-rod is freed from its stop position; pull
downwards and open the door at the same time.
5. Reposition the panel, making sure the hooks are
securely in place before you push it onto the appliance.
