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. using a screwdriver, remove the cover panel on the
lower front part of the Washer-dryer (see figure).
4. pull outwards using the tab as indicated in the figure,
until the plastic tie-rod is freed from its stop position; pull
downwards and open the door at the same time.
5. reposition the panel, making sure the hooks are securely
in place before you push it onto the appliance.
