Unpacking and levelling

Unpacking
Before connecting the inlet hose to the cold water supply, allow the water to flow from the tap until it runs clear.
1. Connect the inlet hose to the machine, by screwing it into the cold water inlet on the upper right hand side of the back of the machine (see figure).
1. Once the washing machine has been removed from the packaging, check that it has not been damaged during transportation. If it has been damaged, contact the retailer and do not proceed any further with the installation process. 2. Remove the four transit bolts and the rubber bush with the respective spacer, situated on the rear of the appliance. 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. 3. Having removed the 4 bolts use the 4 plastic blanking plates to cover the 4 holes. 4. Keep all the pieces; if the washing machine is transported in future, the transit bolts and spacers will have to be replaced in order to avoid damaging the inside of the machine.
2. Place the seal A (provided in the bag) on the end of the inlet hose and screw it to a cold water tap with a 3/4 BSP threaded connection (see figure).
3. Make sure there are no kinks or bends in the inlet hose.
Packaging materials should not be used as toys by children.

The water pressure at the tap must fall within the
values indicated in the Technical data table (see next page). a specialist store or an authorised technician. with the machine.
1. Position the washing machine on a level and sturdy floor, without resting it against walls or cabinets. 2. If the floor is uneven, the feet of the appliance may be adjusted until it reaches a perfectly horizontal position (the angle of inclination must not exceed 2 degrees).

If the water inlet hose is not long enough, contact Always use the new water inlet hoses supplied

Drainage

Connection

65 - 100 cm

Connect the drain hose, without kinking it, to a draining duct or a stand pipe situated between 65 and 100 cm from the floor;
the supply voltage is included within the values i ndicated on the Technical details table (on the 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 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.
WARNING - THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED. THE FOLLOWING OPERATIONS SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN. 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 either: the plug is replaced by a fused 13 ampere rewearable plug bearing the BSI mark of approval. or: 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 appliance. 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 plug: Important: the wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code: Green & Yellow E a r t h Blue Neutral Brown Live
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 in the Technical details table (on the page 5);
As the colours of the wires in the lead may not correspond with the coloured markings identifyng the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows: Connect Green & Yellow wire to terminal marked E or coloured Green or Green & Yellow. or Connect Brown wire to terminal marked L or coloured Red. Connect Blue wire to terminal marked N or coloured Black. If a 13 amp plug (BS 1363) is used it must be fitted with a 13 amp fuse, either in the plug or adaptor or at the distribution board. If you are in any doubt the electrical supply to your machine, consult a qualified electrician before use. How to connect an alternative plug: The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code: BLUE NEUTRAL (N) BROWN LIVE (L) GREEN & YELLOW EARTH (E) Disposing of the appliance: When disposing of the appliance please remove the plug by cutting the mains cable as close as possible to the plug body and dispose of it as described above.

The following advice is provided for safety reasons and should be read carefully. 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.

General safety

This appliance was designed for domestic use inside the home and is not intended for commercial or industrial use. The washer-dryer must be used by adults only, in accordance with the instructions provided in this booklet. Do not touch the machine when barefoot or with wet or damp hands or feet. When unplugging the appliance, always pull the plug from the mains socket; do not pull on the cable. Do not touch the drained water as it may reach extremely high temperatures. Never force the porthole door: doing so may damage the safety lock mechanism designed to prevent the door being opened accidentally. If the appliance breaks down, under no circumatances must you attempt to carry out the repairs yourself. Keep children well away from the machine while it is in operation. If the machine must be moved, work in a group of two or three people and handle it very carefully. Never attempt to move the appliance without the help of another person, because it is extremely heavy. Make sure that the drum is empty before loading laundry into the appliance. 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. trichlorethylene). 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.
Opening the door manually
If it is not possible to open the porthole door due to a powercut and you wish to hang out the laundry, proceed as follows: 1. Remove the plug from the electricity socket; 2. Make sure that the water level inside the machine is lower than the door opening; if this is not the case remove excess water using the water outlet hose, collecting it in a bucket as shown in the figure;

3. Remove the covering panel on the front of the washer-dryer using a screwdriver (see figure);
4. Using the tab shown in the figure, pull outwards until the plastic brace comes away; pull it downwards until you hear a click, which indicates that the door is unlocked;

Disposal

When disposing of the packaging material: observe local legislation so that the packaging may be reused. The European Directive 2002/96/EC relating to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment 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 reusing 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
5. Open the door; if this is still not possible, repeat the process;
6. Replace the kick strip, making sure that the hooks are positioned in the right slots before pushing the panel towards the machine.

Care and maintenance

Turning off the water and electricity supplies
Turn off the water tap after every wash. This limits wear and tear on the machines water supply and prevents leaks. Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply before cleaning it and before performing any maintenance work on it.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. Remove the kick strip on the front of the machine using a screwdriver (see figure);

the supply voltage is included within the values i ndicated 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 spigot. If it is place over the edge of a basin or sink be sure the free end of the hose should not be underwater.
WARNING - THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED. THE FOLLOWING OPERATIONS SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN. 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 either: the plug is replaced by a fused 13 ampere rewearable plug bearing the BSI mark of approval. or: 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 appliance. 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 plug: Important: the wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code: Green & Yellow Earth Blue Neutral Brown Live

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.

Wash options

Super Wash This option guarantees a high-performance wash, thanks to the use of a greater quantity of water during the initial phase of the cycle and a longer overall duration of the programme.
It is not compatible with the Fast Wash, Silk,
Wool, Quilted Jacket and Partial programmes.
Extra Rinse This programme increases the efficiency of the rinse phase and ensures that a greater amount of detergent is removed. It is particularly recommended for skin types that are sensitive to detergents. We recommend this programme is used when the washing machine is full or when a large amount of detergent has been used. This option is not compatible with the Fast Wash, Durable Spin, Delicate Spin and Draining programmes. Time Saver Reduces the duration of the wash cycle, while making it possible to save water and electricity. It is not compatible with the "Super Wash" option and may not be enabled for the Fast Wash, Silk, Wool and Partial programmes.
Reduced Creases If this option is selected, the wash and spin phases will be adjusted accordingly so that fabric creasing is reduced. At the end of the cycle the drum of the washing machine will spin slowly; the Reduced Creases and START/PAUSE indicator lights will flash. To end the cycle, press the START/PAUSE button or the Reduced Creases button. When using the Silk programme, the machine will end the cycle while the laundry is soaking and the Reduced Creases indicator light will flash. To drain the water so that the laundry can be removed, press the START/ PAUSE button or the Reduced Creases button.
This option is not compatible with the Wool, Durable Spin, Delicate Spin and Draining programmes.

Detergents and laundry

Detergent
The type and quantity of detergent used depends on the type of fabric (cotton, wool, silk.), its colour, the temperature of the wash, the level of soiling and the hardness of the water in the area. Measuring out the detergent carefully will avoid accidental spills and help to protect the environment: although they may be biodegradable, detergents contain elements that alter the balance of nature. We recommend: the use of powder detergents for white cotton garments and for pre-wash phases; the use of liquid detergents for delicate cotton garments and for all programmes which run at a low temperature; the use of liquid detergents for wool and silk.

Do not use detergents when washing garments by hand, because they create too much foam.
The detergent must be measured out into the relevant compartment, or into the detergent dosing ball which will be placed directly into the drum of the machine. In this case the Cotton cycle with pre-wash phase may not be selected.
Wool: Hotpoint is the only washing machine to have obtained the prestigious Woolmark Platinum Care mark of recognition (M.0612) from The Woolmark Company, which certifies the machine washing of all woollen garments, even those whose label states (max. 1 kg). The Wool hand wash only programme therefore offers you complete peace of mind when washing all woollen garments, with great performance guaranteed every time. Quilted Jacket: to wash single duvets (the weight of which should not exceed 2 kg), cushions or clothes padded with goose down such as puffa jackets, use the special "Quilted Jacket" programme. We recommend that duvets are placed in the drum with their edges folded inwards (see figure) and that no more than of the total volume of the drum is used. To achieve the best results, we recommend that a liquid detergent is used in conjunction with the detergent dispenser drawer.

Preparing the laundry

Unfold all items of laundry before placing them in the
machine. Divide the laundry according to type of material (the symbol on the garment label) and colour, making sure that whites are separated from coloured garments. Empty all pockets and check for loose buttons. Do not exceed the values indicated in the Table of Programmes, which refer to the weight of the laundry items when they are dry.
How much does your laundry weigh?
Quilts: to wash quilts with a synthetic outer layer, use the bag provided and set the programme to "Quilted Jacket". Stubborn stains: stubborn stains should be treated with solid soap before the garment is washed (use the Cotton programme with pre-wash phase).
sheet pillowcase tablecloth bathrobe towel pair of jeans shirt
500 g 200 g 500 g 1200 g 250 g 500 g 200 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 faster than the normal washing speed. If, after several attempts, the load is still not evenly distributed, the machine spins at a lower speed than the set frequency. If the load is excessively unbalanced, the washing machine continues at distribution speed only instead of the full spin speed. In order to achieve better load distribution and balance, we recommend that large and small garments are mixed when placing the laundry in the machine.

Washing advice

Shirts: use a suitable programme to wash shirts made from different fabrics and in different colours. This will guarantee that these garments are looked after properly. Silk: use the relevant programme designed for all silk garments. We recommend the use of a special detergent for delicate garments. Curtains: these should be folded and placed inside the bag provided. Use the "Silk" programme.

Precautions and tips

This machine was designed and manufactured in compliance with cuurent international safety standards. The following advice is provided for safety reasons and should be read carefully.
Opening the door manually
If it is not possible to open the porthole door due to a powercut and you wish to hang out the laundry, proceed as follows: 1. Remove the plug from the electricity socket; 2. Make sure that the water level inside the machine is lower than the door opening; if this is not the case remove excess water using the water outlet hose, collecting it in a bucket as shown in the figure; 3. Remove the covering panel on the front of the washing machine using a screwdriver (see figure);

General safety

This appliance was designed for domestic use inside the home and is not intended for commercial or industrial use. The washing machine must be used by adults only, in accordance with the instructions provided in this booklet. Do not touch the machine when barefoot or with wet or damp hands or feet. When unplugging the appliance, always pull the plug from the mains socket; do not pull on the cable. Do not touch the drained water as it may reach extremely high temperatures. Never force the porthole door: doing so may damage the safety lock mechanism designed to prevent the door being opened accidentally. If the appliance breaks down, under no circumatances must you attempt to carry out the repairs yourself. Keep children well away from the machine while it is in operation. If the machine must be moved, work in a group of two or three people and handle it very carefully. Never attempt to move the appliance without the help of another person, because it is extremely heavy. Make sure that the drum is empty before loading laundry into the appliance.

Disposal

When disposing of the packaging material: observe local legislation so that the packaging may be reused. The European Directive 2002/96/EC relating to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment 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.

4. Using the tab shown in the figure, pull outwards until the plastic brace comes away; pull it downwards until you hear a click, which indicates that the door is unlocked;
5. Open the door; if this is still not possible, repeat the process;
6. Replace the kick strip, making sure that the hooks are positioned in the right slots before pushing the panel towards the machine.

Care and maintenance

Turning off the water and electricity supplies
Turn off the water tap after every wash. This limits wear and tear on the machines water supply and prevents leaks. Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply before cleaning it and before performing any maintenance work on it.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. Remove the kick strip on the front of the machine using a screwdriver (see figure);

Cleaning the machine

The exterior of the appliance and all rubber parts may be cleaned using a cloth soaked in warm soapy water. Do not use solvents or abrasive products.
Cleaning the detergent dispenser drawer
To remove the drawer, press the lever (1) and pull it outwards (2) (see figure). Wash the drawer under running water; this should be done regularly.
2. Position a container collecting the drained water (approximately 1.5 l) correctly (see figure); 3. Unscrew the cover, turning it in an anticlockwise direction (see figure);
4. Clean the inside thoroughly; 5. Screw the cover back on; 6. Replace the kick strip, making sure that the hooks are positioned in the right slots before pushing the panel towards the machine.
Checking the water inlet hose Drum maintenance
Always leave the porthole door ajar to prevent unpleasant odours from forming. Check the water inlet hose at least once a year. If there are any cracks, replace it immediately: the high water pressure used by the wash cycles could cause a cracked hose to split open.

Cleaning the pump

The washing machine is fitted with a self-cleaning pump which does not require regular maintenance. However, it may be that small objects (coins, buttons, etc.) fall into the pre-chamber that protects the pump (the pump is located in the lower part of this prechamber).
Make sure that the wash cycle has finished and
remove the plug from the socket.
