! 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
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 Washerdryer.
Electric and water connections
Connecting the water inlet hose
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).
NB:The plastic spacers
may fall down inside the
machine once the bolt
has been removed, and will not interfere with the
operation of the machine.
4. Do not remove external bar.
5. Seal the gaps using the plastic plugs provided.
6. Keep all the parts: you will need them again if
the Washer-dryer needs to be moved to another
! Packaging materials are not children's toys.
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°.
1. Insert seal A into the
end of the inlet hose and
screw the latter onto a
cold water tap with a 3/4
gas threaded mouth
(see figure).
Before making 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 Washer-dryer,
screwing it onto the
appliance's cold water
inlet, situated on the top
right-hand side on the
rear of the appliance (see
3. Make sure there are no kinks or bends in the
! 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.
Your appliance is now supplied with a 13 amp fused
plug it can be plugged into a 13 amp socket for
immediate use. Before using the appliance please
read the instructions below.
The drain hose may be
connected to an undersink trap. Before
connecting the drain
hose from the machine
ensure that any blanks
or removable ends have
been taken off the
If it is place 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.
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 in the Technical
details table (see page 5);
Replacing the fuse:
When replacing a faulty fuse, a 13 amp ASTA
approved fuse to BS 1362 should always be used,
and the fuse cover re-fitted. If the fuse cover is
lost, the plug must not be used until a replacement
is obtained.
Replacement fuse covers:
If a replacement fuse cover is fitted, it must be of
the correct colour as indicated by the coloured
marking or the colour that is embossed in words on
the base of the plug. Replacements can be obtained
directly from your nearest Service Depot.
Removing the plug:
If your appliance has a non-rewireable moulded plug
and you should wish to re-route the mains cable
through partitions, units etc., please ensure that
the plug is replaced by a fused 13 ampere rewearable plug bearing the BSI mark of approval.
the mains cable is wired directly into a 13 amp cable
outlet, controlled by a switch, (in compliance with
BS 5733) which is accessible without moving the
Disposing of the plug:
Ensure that before disposing of the plug itself, you
make the pins unusable so that it cannot be
accidentally inserted into a socket.
Instructions for connecting cable to an alternative
Important: the wires in the mains lead are coloured
in accordance with the following code:

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.
Curtains: fold curtains and place them in a pillow
case or mesh bag. Use wash cycle
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
offers complete peace of mind when washing
woollen garments in the washer dryer (max. load 1.5
kg) and guarantees optimal performance.
! Do not use hand washing detergents because
these create too much foam.
Open the detergent
dispenser drawer and

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
• 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?
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.
