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 inside
the Washer-dryer and help to prevent leaks.
Unplug the Washer-dryer when cleaning it and
during all maintenance work.
Cleaning 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
Cleaning the detergent dispenser
Remove the dispenser
by raising it and pulling
it out (see figure).
Wash it under running
water; this operation
should be repeated
Caring for the door and drum of
your appliance
Always leave the porthole door ajar in order to
prevent unpleasant odours from forming.
Cleaning the pump
The Washer-dryer 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 pre-chamber which
protects the pump, situated in its bottom part.
! Make sure the wash cycle has finished and
unplug the appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. unscrew the lid by
rotating it anti-
clockwise (see figure): a
little water may trickle
out. This is perfectly
2. clean the inside thoroughly;
3. screw the lid back on.
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.
Never use second-hand hoses.
