Navigation

You can navigate directly using the links on the home page (eg. clicking on "Contact us" will get you there directly). Or you can use the drop-down menus on the grey bar at the top of the page.

Once inside a section, the button for that section in the grey navigation bar at the top will stay lit (blue). The section menu is duplicated to the right, in an area for ease of navigation.

In each section there's an area, on the right hand side, called "Tools". This provides links to other pages or sections of the site relevant to what you're looking at.

Another navigation aid is the site map button over the navigation bar at the top of every page. Click on this and you go to a page that lists all the pages in the site, section by section, so you can go straight to wherever you want.

How to fill out a form

Some areas of the site contain "forms" that can be filled out, for example, to send a message to Indesit Company.

A form is made up of a series of boxes that must be filled out, just as you would fill out a paper form.

The boxes marked by a red asterisk must be filled out and failure to do so generates an error message asking you to comply.

Once all boxes are filled out, the form can be sent by clicking on the "Send" button at the bottom.

How to gain access to restricted areas

Certain areas of the site are restricted even though the links accessing them are visible in ordinary navigation.

To consult these areas you need a login and a password, which can be obtained freely by registering (follow the instructions).

When you try to consult a page in a restricted area, you'll be prompted to enter a login and password. If you have them, enter them in the appropriate boxes, hit "Send" and you can proceed. Up to the end of the current work session (or more precisely as long as the browser is active), the system keeps your login and password in its memory so you don't have to re-enter them to access other restricted areas.

If you're not registered and therefore don't have a login and password, go to the registration page (via the link "If you're not registered, click here").

On the registration page you're asked to indicate any two words at your own discretion (login and password) and enter your personal data.

Registration doesn't involve any commitment on your part and your rights are protected under Law 675 (privacy).

Once you hit "Send", the registration is immediately operative. You won't have to enter your login and password again until you start another navigation session.
