For safety, replace both plastic covers over the holes
left by removing the two bolts.
! Packaging materials are not childrens toys.
Levelling
1. Install the washing machine on a flat sturdy floor,
without resting it up against walls, cabinets etc.
2. Compensate for any unevenness by tightening or
loosening the adjustable front feet. The angle of
inclination, measured according to the worktop
must not exceed 2˚.
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 washing
machine.
Water connection
Connecting the water inlet hose.
Remember that this is a cold-fill machine.
! Check that seal is in place
inside the hose end cap.
Before making the water connections to gas 3/4
thread, allow the water to run freely from the supply
tap until it is perfectly clear.
Screw the inlet end with the blue
cap onto the cold water supply
tap.
Turn the taps on and check for leaks:
tighten if necessary.
! Make sure there are no kinks or bends in the hose.
! The water pressure at the tap must be within the values
indicated in the Technical details table (next page).
! If the water inlet hose is not long enough, contact a
specialist store or an authorised serviceman.
! Always use new hoses.
! Check the water hose at least once a year, replace
any that are cracked as worn hoses could split under
water pressure.

! 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 washing machine 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
1. Unpack the washing machine.
2. Check whether the washing machine has been
damaged during transport. If this is the case, do
not install it and contact your retailer.
Remove the transit fixings
IMPORTANT: Follow these instructions to remove the
TWO transit fixings.
Situated one either side of the
rear panel, BOTH transit bolts
MUST be removed before use.
! Failure to do so may cause
damage to your machine.
It is important the transit bolt and
spacer come out intact (see pic).
1. Use a crosshead screwdriver
to remove the plastic cover.
2. Unscrew the bolt using a
13mm spanner.
3. STOP when 3 threads can be
seen.
4. Hold, slide and pull to
remove.

exceed 150cm in length.
Electrical connections
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 appliances
maximum power load indicated in the Technical
Details table (on the right).
● the supply voltage is included within the values
indicated in the Technical Details table (on the
right).
● the socket is compatible with the washing
machines plug. If this is not the case, replace the
socket or the plug.
! The washing machine should not be installed in an
outdoor environment, not even when the area is
sheltered, because it may be very dangerous to leave
it exposed to rain and thunderstorms.
! When the washing machine is installed, the mains
socket must be within easy reach and should be
connected to a suitable electrical supply.
! Do not use extensions or multiple sockets.
! The power supply cable must never be bent or

! The washing machine was designed and built in
compliance with the applicable international safety
regulations. The following information is provided for
your safety and should consequently be read
carefully.
General safety
● This washing machine should only be used by
adults and in accordance with the instructions
provided in this manual.
● Never touch the washing machine when barefoot
or with wet or damp hands or feet.
● Do not pull on the power supply cable to unplug
the appliance from the electricity socket. Pull the
plug out.
● Do not open the detergent dispenser while the
appliance is in operation.
● Do not touch the drain water as it could reach very
high temperatures.
● Never force the washing machine door: this could
damage the safety lock mechanism designed to
prevent any accidental opening.
● In the event of a malfunction, do not under any
circumstances touch internal parts in order to
attempt repairs.
● Always keep children well away from the
appliance while in operation.
● The appliance door tends to get quite hot during
the wash cycle.
● Should it have to 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 your laundry into the washing
machine, make sure the drum is empty.
Disposal
● Disposing of the packaging material:
observe local regulations, so the packaging can
be re-used.
● Disposing of an old washing machine:
before scrapping your appliance, cut the power
supply cable and remove the appliance door.

Saving energy and respecting the
environment
Environmentally-friendly technology
If you only see a little water through your appliance
door, this is because thanks to the latest Ariston
technology, your washing machine only needs less
than half the amount of water to get the best results:
an objective reached to respect the environment.
Saving on detergent, water, energy and time
● To avoid wasting resources, the washing machine
should be used with a full load. A full load instead
of two half loads allows you to save up to 50% on
energy.
● The pre-wash cycle is only necessary on
extremely soiled garments. Avoiding it will save
on detergent, time, water and between 5 and
15% energy.
● Treating stains with a stain remover or leaving
them to soak before washing will cut down the
need to wash them at high temperatures.
A programme at 60˚C instead of 90˚C or one at
40˚C instead of 60˚C will save up to 50% on
energy.
● Use the correct quantity of detergent, depending
on the water hardness, how soiled the garments
are and the amount of laundry you have, to avoid
wastage and to protect the environment: despite
being biodegradable, detergents do contain
ingredients that alter the natural balance of the
environment. In addition, avoid using fabric
softener as much as possible.
● If you use your washing machine between late in
the afternoon and the early hours of the morning,
you will help reduce the electricity board’s peak
load.
● If your laundry has to be dried in a tumble dryer,
select a high spin speed. Having the least water
possible in your laundry will save you time and
energy in the drying process.
Precautions and advice
Page: 9
Caring for your appliance door and
drum
● Always leave the appliance door ajar to prevent
unpleasant odours from forming.
Checking the water inlet hose
Check the water inlet hose at least once a year. If you
see any cracks, replace it immediately: during the
wash cycles, high water pressure could cause a
cracked hose to split open.
! Never use hoses that have already been used.
Fuses
Your appliance comes fitted with a plug and a 13 amp
(13A) fuse. If you need to replace the fuse, use only
those rated at 13 amp (13A) and ASTA approved to
BS1362. To change the fuse, insert the fuse and push
the fuse holder down into the locked position. Correct
replacement is identified by colour coding or the
marking on base of the plug.
! DO NOT use the plug unless the fuse holder is in the
locked position and the top cover firmly replaced.
Care and maintenance
10
GB
Switching off the electricity
● Turn off the water tap after every wash. This will
limit the wear of your appliances water system
and also prevent leaks.
● Unplug your appliance when cleaning it and
during all maintenance operations.
Cleaning
Cleaning the exterior
Use a damp cloth or silicon polish to clean the exterior
surfaces of the appliance.
Cleaning the door bowl
Clean the internal surface of the door bowl regularly
with a soft cloth. A build up of soap powder and water
hardness residue may result in water leaking from the
door.
Cleaning the dispenser drawer and compartments
It is advisable to clean the dispenser drawer regularly.
! Do not try to clean any part of the dispenser drawer
while the machine is running.
1. Pull out the drawer until it reaches its stop.
2. Press the drawer release button
to remoce the dispenser drawer
(see figure).
3. Clean and dry the dispenser
drawer, syphons, grate and
fabric conditioner exit channel
(A). Also regularly clean the outlet
pipe area (B).
4. Relocate the dispenser drawer and push it firmly
back into place.
! Do not clean any part of the machine with abrasive
cleaners, scouring agents, acids, any bleach or metal
polish as they may cause damage.

Troubleshooting
Problem:
The washing machine won’t
start?
The wash cycle won’t start?
The washing machine fails to
fill with water?
The washing machine
continuously fills with water
and drains?
The washing machine does
not drain or spin?
The washing machine vibrates
too much during the spin
cycle?
The washing machine leaks?
The ON-OFF/DOOR LOCKED
LED flashes rapidly at the
same time as at least one
other LED?
There is too much foam?
Possible causes / Solution:
● The appliance is not fully plugged into the socket.
● There has been a power failure.
● The appliance door is not shut properly.
● The ON/OFF button has not been pressed, for at least 2 seconds.
● The START/RESET button has not been pressed, for at least 2 seconds.
● The water tap is not turned on.
● The water inlet hose is not connected to the tap.
● The hose is kinked.
● The water tap is not turned on.
● There is a water shortage.
● The water pressure is insufficient.
● The START/RESET button has not been pressed, for at least 2 seconds.
● The drain hose is not fitted between 65 and 100cm from the floor (see
Installation).
● The free end of the hose is underwater (see Installation).
● The wall drainage system doesn’t have a breather pipe.
If the problem persists even after these checks, turn off the water tap,
switch the appliance off and call for assistance. If the dwelling is on one of
the upper floors of a building, there may be drain trap problems
causing the washing machine to load and unload water continuously. In
order to avoid such an inconvenience, special anti-drain trap valves are
available in shops.
● If the machine was unable to balance the load it will use a slow spin
rather than risk machine damage; the clothes might appear wetter
than expected.
● The Rinse Hold option is enabled: to complete the programme, press
the Rinse Hold button (see Starting and Programmes).
● The drain hose is bent (see Installation).
● The drain duct is clogged.
● The transit fixings were not removed correctly (see Installation).
● The washing machine is not level (see Installation).
● The washing machine is closed in, between furniture cabinets and the
wall (see Installation).
● The water inlet hose is not screwed on correctly (see Installation).
● The detergent dispenser is obstructed, clean it (see Care and
maintenance).
● The drain hose is not secured properly (see Installation).
● Call for assistance because this means there is an error.
● The detergent is not suitable for machine washing (it should bear the
definition “for washing machines” or “hand and machine wash”, etc.)
● You used too much detergent.
One day your washing machine seems not to be working. Before you call your Service Centre (see Service), go
