DETERGENT DISPENSER DRAWER
The cycle duration indicated on the display or instruction manual is an estimate based on
standard conditions. The actual duration may vary in relation to several factors, such as
the temperature and pressure of the incoming water, ambient temperature, amount of
detergent, load quantity and type, load balancing and any additional options selected.
1) Test wash cycle in compliance with regulation EN 50229 (Wash):
This cycle is designed for normally soiled cotton loads and is the most efficient in terms of
both electricity and water consumption; it should be used for garments washable at 60°C.
The actual washing temperature may differ from the indicated value.
Test wash cycle in compliance with regulation EN 50229 (Drying):
Select the 6 wash programme and set the drying level to
for both loads. The first drying
cycle must be carried out with the nominal load.
For all testing institutes:
2) Long cotton cycle: set cycle 2 at a temperature of 40°C.
* By selecting the cycle and excluding the spin cycle, the washer-dryer will drain only.

garments, for pre-washing, and for washing at temperatures over 60°C.
! Follow the instructions given on the detergent packaging.
! To remove the drawer, press lever C and pull the drawer outwards.
Bleach Cycle
If you wish to bleach the laundry, load the washing machine and set the
Rinse programme .
Start the machine and wait for it to complete the first water filling cycle
(roughly 2 minutes). Put the machine in pause mode by pressing the
START/PAUSE, open the detergent drawer and pour the bleach (observe
the recommended doses indicated on the package) into the wash
compartment where the partition was previously mounted. Restart the
cycle by pressing the START/PAUSE.
If desired, it is possible to add fabric softener into the appropriate
compartment of the detergent drawer.
WASH CYCLES
Follow the instructions on the symbols of the garment’s wash
care label. The value indicated in the symbol is the maximum
recommended temperature for washing the garment.
Mixed: for washing lightly to normally soiled resilient
garments in cotton, linen, synthetic fibres and mixed fibres.
Cotton: suitable for resistant linen and cotton that are heavily soiled.
Synthetic: suitable for washing moderately soiled garments made of
synthetic fibres (e.g. polyester, polyacrylic, viscose, etc.) or mixed
synthetic-cotton fibres.
White: suitable for resistant linen and cotton that are exceptionally soiled.
Coloured: a 40°C cycle that helps to preserve colours, suitable for cotton
or synthetic coloured garments. It allows for reducing electricity
consumption for heating the water while guaranteeing good washing
results. Suitable for lightly soiled garments.
Eco Cotton: suitable for washing moderately soiled cotton garments. At
60°C and 40°C it is the standard cycle for washing cotton garments, and is
the most efficient in terms of combined water and electricity
consumption.
Sport: a cycle designed for washing lightly soiled sports clothing
(tracksuits, shorts, etc.); for best results, we recommend not exceeding the
maximum load indicated in the “Wash Cycle Table”. We recommend using
liquid detergent and adding the amount suitable for a half-load.
Dark: use programme 8 to wash dark-coloured garments. This
programme is designed to maintain dark colours over time. We
recommend using a liquid detergent for the best results when washing
dark-coloured garments.
When you select the drying function, at the end of the washing cycle the
machine will automatically perform a delicate drying cycle that preserves the
colours of the garments. The display will show the level “ ”. Max. load: 3 kg.
Anti-odour: use programme 9 for washing garments with bad odours
(e.g. smoke, sweat, fried food). The programme is designed to remove bad
odours while preserving the fabric fibres. Synthetics fabrics or mixed
loads should be washed at 40°, and resistant cotton fabrics at 60°.
Delicate: use programme 10 to wash very delicate garments. It is
advisable to turn the garments inside out before washing them. For best
results, use liquid detergent on delicate garments.
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.
Wool - Woolmark Apparel Care - Blue:
The “Wool” wash cycle is approved by the Woolmark
Company for washing wool garments classified as
“hand-washable”, provided that the wash complies with
the instructions appearing on the garment’s label and
with those provided by the manufacturer of this washerdryer. (M1318)
Rapid 30’: this programme is designed to wash lightly soiled garments at
30° (excluding wool and silk) with a 3,5 kg maximum load in a short time:
it only lasts 30 minutes and allows for saving time and energy.
Wash&Dry 45’: select programme 13 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.
AirFresh: ideal cycle to refresh garments and remove bad odours, in
particular smoke, from cotton and synthetic items in 30’ (max. 1 kg)
without the washing phase.
Rinse/Bleach: designed for rinsing and bleaching.
Spin + Drain: designed to spin and drain the water.

the drying time, until the cycle is excluded completely (“OFF”).
Drying may be set as follows:
A- Based on the desired laundry dryness level:
Cupboard : suitable for laundry which can be put back in a cupboard
without being ironed.
Hanger : ideal for clothes which do not need to be dried fully.
Iron : suitable for clothes which will need ironing afterwards. the
remaining dampness softens creases, making them easier to remove.
B - Based on a set time period: between 210 and 30 minutes.
If your laundry load to be washed and dried is much greater than the
maximum stated load (see adjacent table of wash cycles), 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. Note: a cooling-down period is always
added to the end of each drying cycle.
Drying only
Press button

.
(Not compatible with cycles 13 and 14).
Push & Wash + Dry
This function makes it possible to start an automatic wash and drying
cycle either when the machine is off without having to press the ON/OFF
button in advance, or after switching on the machine without having
activated any button and/or selector (otherwise the Push&Wash+Dry
function will be deactivated). To start the Push&Wash+Dry cycle press
and hold the button for 2 seconds. The indicator lights up to show
that the cycle has started. The wash and drying cycle is ideal for cotton
or synthetic fabrics, as it washes them at a temperature of 30° and a
maximum spin speed of 1000 rpm. During the drying cycle the maximum
temperature is 60°C. At the end of the cycle the residual humidity will be
the same as for the “ ” level. Max recommended load 3 kg.
The time displayed is the maximum time allowed by the Push&Wash+Dry
cycle. If the load is lower than the maximum load or most garment are
made of synthetic materials, the actual time of the cycle will be shorter.
How does it work?
1. Load the laundry (cotton and/or synthetic garments) and close the
door.
2. Pour the detergent and/or additives.
3. Start the cycle by pressing and holding the Push&Wash+Dry button for
2 seconds. The relevant indicator light will turn green and the door will
lock (the DOOR LOCKED symbol is lit).
NB: starting the cycle through the Push&Wash+Dry button activates an
automatic non-customisable wash and drying cycle recommended for
cotton and synthetic fabrics.
4. The automatic cycle can be used only for washing, excluding the drying
phase. Press the Push&Wash+Dry button and then the drying button
: the drying icon of the “ ” level will switch off. Maximum load for
washing-only is 4 kg. The cycle cannot be customised further.
To open the door while an automatic cycle is under way, press the START/
PAUSE button. If the DOOR LOCKED symbol is off, the door may be
opened only during the washing phase. Press the START/PAUSE button
again to restart the wash cycle from the point at which it was interrupted.
5. At the end of the wash cycle the word END will light up.
TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
Divide the laundry according to:
Type of fabric (cotton, mixed fibres, synthetics, wool, garments to be
hand-washed). Colour (separate coloured garments from whites, wash
new coloured garments separately). Delicates (small garments – such as
nylon stockings – and items with hooks – such as bras: insert them in a
fabric bag).
Empty the pockets:
Objects such as coins or lighters can damage the washer-dryer and the
drum. Check all buttons.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Before performing cleaning and maintenance, switch the washer-dryer off
and disconnect it from the mains power. Do not use flammable liquids to
clean the washer-dryer.
Disconnect the water and power supplies
Close the water tap after every wash. This will limit wear on the hydraulic
system inside the washer-dryer and help to prevent leaks. Unplug the
washer-dryer when cleaning it and during all maintenance work.
Clean the washer-dryer
The outer parts and rubber components of the appliance can be cleaned
using a soft cloth soaked in lukewarm soapy water. Do not use solvents or
abrasives. The washer-dryer has a “Auto-clean” cycle for its internal parts; it
must be run without any load in the drum.
To optimise this cycle, it is possible to use either detergent (10% of the
quantity specified for lightly soiled garments) or special additives to clean
the washer-dryer. We recommend running a cleaning cycle every 40 wash
cycles. To start the cycle press buttons
and
simultaneously for 5
seconds. The cycle will start automatically and will run for about 70
minutes. To stop the cycle, press the START/PAUSE
button.
Clean the detergent dispenser drawer
Wash it under running water; this operation should be repeated
frequently.
Care for the door and drum
Always leave the porthole door ajar in order to prevent unpleasant odours
from forming.
Clean the pump
The washer-dryer is fitted with a auto-cleaning pump that does not
require any maintenance. Small items (such as coins or buttons) may
sometimes fall into the protective pre-chamber situated at the base of the
pump.
! Make sure the wash cycle has ended and unplug the appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. remove the cover panel on the front of the machine by first pressing it
in the centre then pushing downwards on both sides to extract it;
2. loosen the drainage pump cover by turning it anti-clockwise: it is
normal for some water to leak out;
3. clean the inside thoroughly;
4. screw the cover back on;
5. put the panel back in place, making sure the hooks slot in place before
pushing the panel onto the appliance.
Check the water inlet hose
Check the water inlet hose at least once a year. If it is cracked or broken, it
must be replaced: during wash cycles, the high pressure of the water
could suddenly split the hose open.
! Never use hoses that have already been used.
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 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.
ACCESSORIES
Contact our Technical Assistance Service to check whether the following
accessories are available for this washer-dryer model.
Stacking kit
With this accessory you can secure the tumble dryer to the upper part of
your washer-dryer to save space and facilitate loading and unloading of
the tumble dryer.
TRANSPORT AND HANDLING
Do not lift the washer-dryer by gripping it from the upper section.
Unplug the appliance and close the water tap. Check that the door and
detergent dispenser drawer are tightly closed. Detach the filling hose
from the water tap then detach the drain hose. Empty all the water
remaining in the hoses and secure the latter so that they do not get
damaged during transport. Apply the transport bolts back on. Repeat, in
reverse order, the transport bolt removal procedure described in the
“Health & Safety and Installation Guides”.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Your machine could occasionally fail to work. Before contacting the Technical Assistance Service, make sure that the problem cannot be easily solved
