INDESIT Washer-Dryer Instruction Manual


! This instruction manual should be kept in a safe place for future reference. If the washer-dryer is sold, transferred or moved, make sure that the instruction manual remains with the machine so that the new owner is able to familiarise himself/herself with its operation and features.

! Read these instructions carefully: they contain vital information relating to the safe installation and operation of the appliance.

Unpacking and levelling
  1. Remove the washer-dryer from its packaging.
  2. Make sure that the washer-dryer has not been damaged during the transportation process. If it has been damaged, contact the retailer and do not proceed any further with the installation process.
  3. Remove the 4 protective screws (used during transportation) and the rubber washer with the corresponding spacer, located on the rear part of the appliance (see figure).
  4. Close off the holes using the plastic plugs provided.
  5. Keep all the parts in a safe place: you will need them again if the washer-dryer needs to be moved to another location.

! Packaging materials should not be used as toys for children.

  1. Install the washer-dryer on a flat sturdy floor, without resting it up against walls, furniture cabinets or anything else.
  2. If the floor is not perfectly level , compensate for any unevenness by tightening or loosening the adjustable front feet (see figure); the angle of inclination, measured in relation to the worktop, must not exceed 2°. Levelling the machine correctly will provide it with stability, help to avoid vibrations and excessive noise and prevent it from shifting while it is operating. 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 washer-dryer.
Connecting the electricity and water supplies
Connecting the water inlet hose
  1. Connect the supply pipe by screwing it to a cold water tap using a ¾ gas threaded connection (see figure). Before performing the connection, allow the water to run freely until it is perfectly clear.
  2. Connect the inlet hose to the washer-dryer by screwing it onto the corresponding water inlet of the appliance, which is situated on the top right-hand side of the rear part of the appliance (see figure).
  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 details table (see next page).

! If the inlet hose is not long enough, contact a specialised shop or an authorised technician.

! Never use second-hand hoses.

! Use the ones supplied with the machine.

Connecting the drain hose

Connect the drain hose, without bending it, to a drainage duct or a wall drain located at a height between 65 and 100 cm from the floor; alternatively, rest it 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.

Electrical connections

Before plugging the appliance into the electricity socket, make sure that:

  • the socket is earthed and complies with all applicable laws;
  • the socket is able to withstand the maximum power load of the appliance as indicated in the Technical data table (see opposite);
  • the power supply voltage falls within the values indicated in the Technical data table (see opposite);
  • the socket is compatible with the plug of the washer-dryer. If this is not the case, replace the socket or the plug.

! The washer-dryer must not be installed outdoors, even in covered areas. It is extremely dangerous to leave the appliance exposed to rain, storms and other weather conditions.

! When the washer-dryer has been installed, the electricity socket must be within easy reach.

! Do not use extension cords or multiple sockets.

! The cable should not be bent or compressed.

! The power supply cable must only be replaced by authorised technicians.

Warning! The company shall not be held responsible in the event that these regulations are not respected.

The first wash cycle

Once the appliance has been installed, and before you use it for the first time, run a wash cycle with detergent and no laundry, using the wash cycle “Auto Clean” (see “Cleaning the washer-dryer”).

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 abrasives.
  • The washer-dryer has a “Auto Clean” programme for its internal parts that must be run with no load in the drum.

For maximum performance you may want to use either the detergent (i.e. a quantity 10% the quantity specified for lightly-soiled garments) or special additives to clean the washer-dryer. We recommend running a cleaning programme every 40 wash cycles. To start the programme press buttons A and B simultaneously for 5 seconds (see figure). The programme will start automatically and will last approximately 70 minutes. To stop the cycle press the START/PAUSE button.

Cleaning the detergent dispenser drawer

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 protective pre-chamber at the base of the pump.

! Make sure the wash cycle has finished and unplug the appliance.

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. Unscrew the lid by rotating it anti- clockwise (see figure): a little water may trickle out. This is perfectly normal.
  3. Clean the inside thoroughly.
  4. Screw the lid back on.
  5. Reposition the panel, making sure the hooks are securely in place before you push it onto the appliance.
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.

Precautions and tips

! This washer-dryer was designed and constructed in accordance with international safety regulations. The following information is provided for safety reasons and must therefore be read carefully.

General safety
  • This appliance was designed for domestic use only.

Detergents and laundry

Detergent dispenser drawer

Successful washing results also depend on the correct dose of detergent: adding too much detergent will not necessarily result in a more efficient wash, and may in fact cause build up on the inside of your appliance and contribute to environmental pollution.

! Do not use hand washing detergents because these create too much foam.

! Use powder detergent for white cotton garments, for pre-washing, and for washing at temperatures over 60°C.

! Follow the instructions given on the detergent packaging.

Open the detergent dispenser drawer and pour in the detergent or washing additive, as follows.

Compartment 1: Pre-wash detergent (powder)Before pouring in the detergent, make sure that extra compartment 4 has been removed.

Compartment 2: Washing detergent (powder or liquid)If liquid detergent is used, it is recommended that the removable plastic partition A (supplied) be used for proper dosage. If powder detergent is used, place the partition into slot B.

Compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)The fabric softener must not exceed the “max” level indicated on the central pin.

Extra compartment 4: Bleach

Bleach cycle

Insert the additional compartment 4 (provided) into compartment 1. In pouring the bleach do not exceed the “max” level indicated on the central pin.Perform bleaching by pouring the bleach into additional compartment 4 and set the programme .

! Traditional bleach should be used on resistant white fabrics, and delicate bleach for coloured and synthetics fabrics and for wool.

Preparing the laundry
  • Divide the laundry according to:– the type of fabric/the symbol on the label– the colours: separate coloured garments from whites.
  • Empty all garment 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 400-500 g1 pillow case 150-200 g1 tablecloth 400-500 g1 bathrobe 900-1.200 g1 towel 150-250 g

Special wash cycles

Sport (programme 1) is designed for washing lightly soiled sports clothing (tracksuits, shorts, etc.); for best results, we recommend not exceeding the maximum load indicated in the “Table of wash cycles”. We recommend using liquid detergent, and adding the amount suitable for a half-load.

Dark: use programme 2 to wash dark-coloured garments. This programme is designed to maintain dark colours over time. We recommend using a liquid detergent for the best results when washing dark-coloured garments. When you select the drying function, at the end of the washing cycle the machine will automatically perform a delicate drying cycle that preserves the colours of the garments. The display will show the level “ ”.Max. load: 3 kg.

Anti-odour: use programme 3 for washing garments with bad odours (e.g. smoke, sweat, fried food). The programme is designed to remove bad odours while preserving the fabric fibres. Synthetics fabrics or mixed loads should be washed at 40°, and resistant cotton fabrics at 60°.

Delicate: use programme 4 to wash very delicate garments. It is advisable to turn the garments inside out before washing them. For best results, use liquid detergent on delicate garments.

When selecting an exclusively time-based drying function, a drying cycle is performed at the end of the wash cycle that is particularly delicate, thanks to light handling and appropriate temperature control of the water jet.

The recommended durations are:1 kg of synthetic garments –> 150 min1 kg of synthetic and cotton garments –> 180 min1 kg of cotton garments –> 180 minThe degree of dryness depends on the load and fabric composition.

Wool: the wool wash programme of this machine has been tested and approved by The Woolmark Company for the washing of wool containing garments labelled as “hand wash” provided that the garments are washed according to the instructions on the garment label and those issued by the manufacturer of this washer-dryer.


In UK, Eire, Hong Kong and India the Woolmark trade mark is a Certification trade mark.

Rapid 30’ (programme 6) this programme is designed to wash lightly soiled garments at 30° (excluding wool and silk) with a 3 kg maximum load in a short time: it only lasts 30 minutes and allows for saving time and energy

Coloured: use this programme 10 to wash bright coloured clothes. The programme is designed to maintain bright colours over time.

Eco Cotton 20° (programme 11) ideal for lightly soiled cotton loads. The effective performance levels achieved at cold temperatures, which are comparable to washing at 40°, are guaranteed by a mechanical action which operates at varying speed, with repeated and frequent peaks.

Eco Synthetic (programme 12) ideal for mixed loads (cotton and synthetics) with a normal soil level. The effective performance levels achieved at cold temperatures are guaranteed by a mechanical action which operates at varying speed, across set average intervals.

Wash&Dry 45’ select programme 13 for washing and drying lightly soiled garments (Cotton and Synthetic) in a short time. This cycle may be used to wash and dry a laundry load of up to 1 kg in just 45 minutes. To achieve optimum results, use liquid detergent and pre-treat cuffs, collars and stains.

AirFresh (programme 14 ) ideal cycle to refresh garments and remove bad odours, in particular smoke, from cotton and synthetic items in 30’ (max 1.5kg) without the washing phase.

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 washer-dryer 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.


Your washer-dryer could occasionally fail to work. Before contacting the Technical Assistance Service (see “ Service”), make sure that the problem cannot be solved easily using the following list.


Before contacting the Technical Assistance Service:

  • Check whether you can solve the problem alone (see “Troubleshooting”).
  • Restart the wash cycle to check whether the problem has been solved.
  • If this is not the case, contact an authorised Technical Assistance Centre.

! Always request the assistance of authorised technicians.

Have the following information to hand:

  • the type of problem;
  • the appliance model (Mod.);
  • the serial number (S/N).

This information can be found on the data plate applied to the rear of the washer-dryer, and can also be found on the front of the appliance by opening the door.

You can wash or dry independently, so you can use it as a normal washer with the peace of mind of a dryer for emergencies. Purchase and running costs are roughly equivalent to a separate front loading washer and condenser dryer.

Are Indesit Washing Machines safe?

Whirlpool announced this week that it is preparing to recall up to 519,000 Hotpoint and Indesit washing machines. The machines are being recalled owing to a fault with the door lock, which results in them posing a fire risk. The recall covers models manufactured between October 2014 and February 2018.

Do washer dryer combos use a lot of electricity?

When it comes to overall efficiency, over the last 10 years, washers have become more efficient while dryer technology hasn’t changed significantly [source: Consumer Reports]. This means that some combo units can be more energy-efficient than two separate standard machines.

How do you stop Indesit Washer dryer mid cycle?

Press the “Start/Pause” button on the front of your washing machine and wait a few minutes for the washer to safely drain away water in the drum before it unlocks the door. Once this is done, you’ll be able to open the door and add/remove items or make chances to the cycle.

How long does it take to dry clothes in dryer?

Typically, a gas or electric dryer should take about 30 to 45 minutes to dry a full load of clothes. Dense fabrics—like a quilt or a load of thick bath towels—may take up to an hour to dry. If your dryer’s taking too long to dry your laundry, it’s important to figure out what’s wrong instead of ignoring it.

Why are my clothes too wet after the spin cycle?

Overloading can lead to an imbalance that reduces the washer’s spin speed, leaving clothes too wet after spin cycle completes. If the washer leaves clothes soaked after a large load, remove some items, redistribute others and run another rinse and spin cycle.

What setting should my tumble dryer be on?

use the tumble dryer on a high heat setting. This is also the best option for those occasions when time is not on your side, and you suddenly end up with a muddy sports kit that must be cleaned for that morning’s football match.

Why does my dryer take 2 hours to dry clothes?

Lint in debris buildup inside exhaust vents is a common cause of a dryer taking too long to dry. Clogged dryer vents can also restrict airflow in the dryer and lengthen drying times, not to mention cause dangerous dryer fires.

How do you make clothes dry faster in the dryer?

Clean the dryer vent and exhaust duct. Periodic cleaning prevents lint buildup, which would otherwise impede the airflow and increase dry time.Shorten the dryer hose.Remove lint from the filter screen.Shake water from your wardrobe.Don’t overload the dryer.Resist opening the door.Throw in the towel—literally.

How long should it take to dry a load of towels?
