This instruction manual should be kept in a safe place for future reference. If the washing machine is sold, given away or moved, please ensure the manual is kept with the machine, so that the new owner may benefit from the advice contained within it. Read these instructions carefully: they contain vital information relating to the safe installation and operation of the appliance. Inside the pack containing this manual, you will also find the guarantee and all the details necessary for installation. If the appliance is levelled correctly, it will be more stable and much less likely to cause vibrations and noise while it is operating, particularly during the spin cycle. If it is placed on carpet or a rug, adjust the feet in such a way as to allow a sufficient ventilation space underneath the washing machine.

Connecting the electricity and water supplies
Connecting the water inlet hose
Before connecting the inlet hose to the water supply, run the water until it is perfectly clear. 1. Connect the inlet hose to the machine by screwing it onto the cold water inlet of the appliance, which is situated on the top righthand side of the rear part of the appliance (see figure).

Unpacking and levelling
1. Once you have removed all the packaging from the washing machine, make sure 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 4 protective screws (used during transportation) and the corresponding spacer, located on the rear part of the appliance (see figure).

2. Connect the inlet hose by screwing it to a cold water tab using a 3/4 gas threaded connection (see figure).

3. Close off the holes using the plastic plugs supplied in the pack. 4. Keep all the parts in a safe place; they will be needed again if the washing machine is moved to another location, to prevent the inside of the appliance being damaged. Packaging materials should not be used as toys for children.

3. Make sure that the hose is not folded over or bent. The water pressure at the tap must fall within the values indicated in the Technical data table (see next page). If the inlet hose is not long enough, contact a specialised shop or an authorised technician. Never use second-hand or old inlet hoses; use the products supplied with the machine.

1. Place the washing machine on a flat sturdy floor, without resting it up against walls or cabinets. 2. If the floor is uneven, the front feet of the machine may be adjusted until it reaches a horizontal position (the angle of inclination must not exceed 2 degrees).



Connecting the drain hose
Connect the drain hose to drain duct piping or a wall drain located between 65 and 100 cm above the floor, making sure it is not bent at all.

Do not use extension cords or multiple sockets. The cable should not be bent or compressed. The power supply cable and plug must only be replaced by authorised technicians. Warning! The company shall not be held responsible in the event that these regulations are not respected.


65 - 100 cm

Alternatively, rest the drain hose on the side of a washbasin or bathtub, fastening the duct supplied to the tap (see figure). The free end of the hose should not be underwater.

We advise against the use of hose extensions; if it is absolutely necessary, the extension must have the same diameter as the original hose and must not exceed 150 cm in length.

Technical data

Wash options
Steam Hygiene This option enhances washing performance by generating steam during the wash cycle that eliminates any bacteria from fibres while treating them at the same time. Place the laundry in the drum, choose a compatible programme and select option " ". The steam generated during washing machine operation may cause the porthole door to become hazy. It cannot be used in conjunction with , (90C), , , , , , , , , , . Easy Iron By selecting this option, the wash and spin cycles will be modified in order to reduce the formation of creases. At the end of the cycle the washing machine drum will rotate slowly ; the Easy Iron and START/ PAUSE indicator lights will flash. To end the cycle press the START/PAUSE button or the Easy Iron button. For the Silk wash cycle, the machine will end the cycle while the laundry is soaking and the Easy Iron indicator light will flash. To drain the water so that the laundry may be removed, press the START/PAUSE button or the Easy Iron button. It cannot be used in conjunction with , , , , , .

Time Saver If you select this option, the wash cycle duration will be reduced by 30%-50%, depending on the selected cycle, thereby guaranteeing simultaneous water and energy saving. Use this cycle for lightly soiled garments. It cannot be used in conjunction with , , , ,
, , , , , .

Extra rinse By selecting this option, the efficiency of the rinse is increased and optimal residual detergent removal is guaranteed. It is particularly useful for skin which is sensitive to detergents. We recommend this option is used with a full load of washing, or when a large amount of detergent is required. It cannot be used in conjunction with , , , .



Detergents and laundry


The type and quantity of detergent required depend on the type of fabric you are washing (cotton, wool, silk, etc.), as well as its colour, the washing temperature, the level of soiling and the hardness of the water in the area. Measuring out the detergent carefully will avoid wastage and help to protect the environment: although they are biodegradable, detergents still contain ingredients which alter the balance of nature. We recommend the following: use powder detergents for white cotton garments and pre-washing. use liquid detergents for delicate cotton garments and for all low-temperature wash cycles. use gentle liquid detergents for wool and silk garments. The detergent should be poured into the relevant compartment - or the dispenser placed directly inside the drum - before the wash cycle begins. In the latter case, it will not be possible to select the Cottons with pre-wash cycle. Do not use hand washing detergents because these create too much foam.

Preparing the laundry

Shake out the garments before loading them into the machine. Divide the laundry according fabric type (symbol on the washing instruction label) and colour, making sure you separate the coloured garments from the white ones; Empty all pockets and check the buttons; Do not exceed the values listed in the Table of wash cycles, which refer to the weight of the laundry when dry.

How much does your laundry weigh?
1 sheet 1 pillowcase 1 tablecloth 1 bathrobe 1 towel 1 pair of jeans 1 shirt 400-500 g 150-200 g 400-500 g 900-1200 g 150-250 g 400-500 g 150-200 g

Washing recommendations
* Steam Refresh This programme refreshes garments by removing bad odours and relaxing the fibres (1.5 kg, roughly 3 items). Insert dry items only (that are not dirty) and select programme " ". The garments will be damp once the cycle is completed, so we recommend hanging them to dry. The " " programme makes ironing easier. Moreover, with the "Steam Perfume" laundry balls, your favourite perfume can be added to your laundry. Place a few drops of perfume on the sponge contained inside the laundry ball, close it and insert it into the drum together with the laundry. Then launch the specific programme " ". At the end of the cycle, garments will be relaxed and fragrant. Not recommended for wool or silk garments. Do not add too much perfume to the sponge in order to avoid it dripping. Do not add softeners or detergents.

Shirts: use the special Shirts wash cycle to wash shirts in different fabrics and colours to guarantee they receive the best possible care. Jeans: use the special Jeans wash cycle for all denim garments; turn inside out before washing and use a liquid detergent. Baby: use the special Baby wash cycle to remove the remove the soiling typically caused by babies, while removing all traces of detergent from nappies in order to prevent the delicate skin of babies from suffering allergic reactions. 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 detergent. At the end of the wash cycle, the machine will slowly rotate the drum; to end the cycle press the START/PAUSE button. Silk: use the special Silk wash cycle to wash all silk garments. We recommend the use of special detergent which has been designed to wash delicate clothes. Curtains: use the Silk wash cycle. These should be folded and placed inside the bag provided. Wool: Hotpoint/Ariston is the only washing machine brand 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 washing machine, even those which state hand wash only on the label. The Wool wash cycle can be used to wash all woollen garments in the washing machine while guaranteeing optimum performance. Duvets: to wash double or single duvets (the weight of which should not exceed 3,5 kg), cushions or clothes padded with goose down such as puffa jackets, use the special Duvets wash cycle. 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 and placed inside the detergent dispenser drawer.

Quilts: to wash quilts with a synthetic outer layer, use the bag provided and set the wash cycle to Duvets . Bedlinen and towels: use the Bed & Bath cycle to wash laundry from all over the house; this optimises fabric softener performance and helps you save time and energy. We recommend the use of powder detergent. Stubborn stains: it is wise to treat stubborn stains with solid soap before washing, and to use the Cottons with pre-wash cycle.


Precautions and tips
The machine was designed and constructed in accordance with international safety regulations. The following information is provided for safety reasons and must therefore be read carefully. 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.


General safety

This appliance was designed for domestic use only. 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 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 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. If it must be moved, proceed with the help 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 washing machine, make sure the drum is empty.

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 washing machine (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 until you hear a click, which indicates that the door is now unlocked.

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 washing machine 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.

5. open the door; if this is still not possible repeat the procedure.


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

6. reposition the panel, making sure the hooks are securely in place before you push it onto the appliance.



Care and maintenance

Cutting off the water and electricity supplies
Turn off the water tap after every wash cycle. This will limit wear on the hydraulic system in the machine and help to prevent leaks. Unplug the appliance when cleaning it and during all maintenance work.

To access the pre-chamber:


1. take off the cover panel on the front of the machine by first pressing it in the centre and then pushing downwards on both sides until you can remove it (see figures); 2. position a container so that it will collect the water which flows out (approximately 1.5 l) (see figure); 3. unscrew the lid by rotating it in an anticlockwise direction (see figure); 4. clean the inside thoroughly; 5. screw the lid back on; 6. reposition the panel, making sure the hooks are securely in place before you push it onto the appliance.

Cleaning the machine
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.

Cleaning the detergent dispenser drawer
To remove the drawer, press lever (1) and pull the drawer outwards (2) (see figure). Wash it under running water; this procedure should be repeated frequently.


Caring for your appliance drum
Always leave the door ajar to prevent unpleasant odours from forming.

Checking the water inlet hose
Check the inlet hose at least once a year. If there are any cracks, it should be replaced immediately: during the wash cycles, water pressure is very strong and a cracked hose could easily split open.

Cleaning the pump
The washing machine is fitted with a self-cleaning pump which does not require any maintenance. Sometimes, small items (such as coins or buttons) may fall into the protective pre-chamber at the base of the pump. Make sure the wash cycle has finished and unplug the appliance.
