Indesit IWDE 126 Washer/Dryer User Manual

Care and maintenance
Cutting off the water or electricity supply
Turn off the water tap after every wash. This will
limit the wear of your appliance's water system
and also prevent leaks.
Unplug your appliance when cleaning it and
during all maintenance operations.
Cleaning your appliance
The exterior and rubber parts of your appliance can
be cleaned with a soft cloth soaked in lukewarm
soapy water. Do not use solvents or abrasives.
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 your appliance door and drum
Always leave the appliance door ajar to prevent
unpleasant odours from forming.
Cleaning the pump
The Washer-dryer is fitted with a self-cleaning pump
that does not require any maintenance. Sometimes,
small items (such as coins or buttons) may fall into
the pre-chamber that protects the pump, situated in
the lower part of the same.
Make sure the wash cycle has ended and unplug
the appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. unscrew the lid
rotating it anti-
clockwise (see figure): a
little water may trickle
out. This is perfectly
2. clean the interior thoroughly;
3. screw the lid back on.
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, water pressure is very strong and
a cracked hose could easily split open.
Never use hoses that have already been used.
