Drying hints
Before loading the laundry
Never tumble dry the following:
Particularly delicate items such as
net curtains, woollen, silk, fabrics
with metal trim, nylon tights, bulky
materials such as anoraks, blankets,
eiderdowns, sleeping bags, feather
quilts and any items containing rubber foam or materials similar to rubber foam.
• Always follow the instructions on garment labels:
•
•
•
may be tumble dried
normal drying (high temperature)
•
delicate drying (low temperature)
do not tumble dry
• Close pillowcases and covers with
fasteners to prevent small laundry
items getting tangled inside them.
Close press studs, zips and hooks
and tie belts and apron strings.
• Sort laundry according to type and
degree of drying required.
• Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids
creasing and saves energy.
• Avoid drying dark clothes with light
coloured fluffy items such as towels
as they could attract the fluff.
• The laundry must be thoroughly spun
before tumble drying.
• Easy-care items, too, e.g. shirts,
should be briefly pre-spun before
•
drying (depending on crease resistance approx. 30 seconds or using
the special brief spin programme of
your washing machine).
Knitted textiles (knitted underwear)
may shrink a little during drying.
Please do not overdry items of this
type. It is advisable to allow for
shrinkage when choosing the size of
new purchases.
You can also put starched items into
your dryer. However, to achieve the
desired starched effect, choose the
programme “iron dry”. To remove any
starch residues, wipe out the internal
drum after drying with a moist cloth
and then rub it dry.
To avoid a static charge when drying
is completed, use either a fabric softener when you are washing the
laundry or a fabric conditioner specifically for tumble dryers.
Remove the laundry when the dryer
has finished drying.
If individual items are still damp after
drying, set a brief post-drying time,
but at least 30 minutes. This will be
necessary particularly for multilayered
items (e.g. collars, pockets, etc.).
Make sure that no metal objects are
left in the laundry (e.g. hair clips, safety
pins, pins).
Button up pillowcases, close zip
fasteners, hooks and poppers. Tie any
belts or long tapes.
To avoid laundry becoming tangled:
close zips, button up duvet covers and
tie loose ties or ribbons (e.g. of aprons).
Turn items with double-layered fabrics
inside out (e.g. with cottonlined anoraks,
the cotton layer should be outermost).
These fabrics will then dry better.

Programme information
Objective
Implementation
Water contains, a variable quantity of limestone and mineral salts of which
quantities vary according to geographical locations thus varying its
conductivity values. Relevant variations of the conductivity of the water
compared to those prefixed by the factory could slightly influence the
residual humidity of the laundry at the end of the cycle. Your dryer allows
you to regulate the sensitivity of the drying sensor based on conductivity
values of the water by using the following procedure.
To access adjustment mode:
1. Turn the programme selector dial to switch on the appliance.
2. In selection mode,press simultaneously the buttons DRYNESS
and START.
Press the buttons down until the pilot lights above each ones begin
to flash and one of the pilot lights indicating the drying phase lights
Empty Tank, Filter and Condenser remains it.
Adjusting
Adjusting the level of conductivity:

Care and cleaning
GB
You must DISCONNECT the appliance
from the electricity supply, before you
can carry out any cleaning or
maintenance work.
External cleaning
The filter in the inner door must be
removed for cleaning.
Use only soap and water and then dry
thoroughly.
Important: do not use methylated
spi`rit, diluents or similar products..
Cleaning the door
Clean periodically the interior part of
the door to remove any fluff from the
seals around the filter. Regular cleaning ensures effective drying.
Cleaning the filters
Your dryer will only function well if the filters are clean.
The filters collect all the fluff which
accumulates during drying and they
must therefore be cleaned at the end
of each programme, before removing
the laundry, with a damp cloth.
The Filter light is on to remind you this
operation.
Do not be alarmed by the amount of fluff. It
is not due to excessive wear caused by the
dryer.
All fabric loses fluff when drying but it
goes un-noticed in the air. In a tumble
dryer it simply collects in the filter.
After a while, a withish patina due to
detergent residue on laundry forms on
the filters. When this occurs, clean the
filters with warm water using a brush.
Remove the filter in the door opening
as per picture (it can be positioned with
the tooth facing to the left or to the
right).
125987350.qxp
2007-01-09
15:02
Page 18
18 electrolux care and cleaning
Do not use the appliance without filters.
Cleaning the condenser unit
Clean the condenser when the
Condenser light comes on.
The condenser is situated at the lower
part of the cabinet behind a small door.
To open the door, push the catch as
per picture.
During the drying cycle or at the end, it
is normal for water to be present on
the surface of the condenser insertion.
To pull out the condenser, first turn the
two red stops downwards and then
remove the condenser unit holding it at
the handle.
Clean it with a brush and rinse it under
the shower if necessary. Also clean the
outside, removing all fluff. Clean the
rubber seal round the condenser cabinet and in the inner part of the small
door with a damp cloth..
Important!
Do not use pointed
objects or utensils to clean the spaces
between the plates, as this could damage the condenser and make it permeable. Re-fit the condenser, turn the red
stops upwards and close the door.
Do
not use this appliance if the condenser
has not been fitted.
Emptying the water reservoir
Water extracted from the laundry condenses inside the machine and is collected in a reservoir. The reservoir must
be emptied after each drying cycle to
ensure efficient operation when the
machine is next used. The pilot light
Empty Tank reminds you of this operation.
125987350.qxp
2007-01-09
15:02
Page 19
care and cleaning electrolux 19
Proceed as follows:
• Open the small door at the lower part
of the cabinet
• Turn the yellow stop upwards
• Pull out the reservoir
• Open the small cover and let the water
flow down
Handy tip: The condensed water may
be used in a steam iron or to top up a
battery, etc. In this case it must be filtered (e.g. through a coffee filter)).
Cleaning the air intake grille
Using a vacuum cleaner remove the
fluff from the air intake grille at the back
of the appliance.
• Close the small cover and re-insertthe
reservoir correctly.
• Push it until it clicks and turn the yellow stop downwards to lock it firmly.
• Close the small door and press the
START/PAUSE button again to allow
the programme to continue.
Cleaning the drum
When your laundry does not reach the
desired degree of dryness, in other
words, when it turns out either too dry
or too damp, we advise you to clean
the inside of the drum with a cloth
soaked with white vinegar.
This will eliminate the slight patina that
has formed in the drum (due to
residues of detergent and softeners
used in the washing, and to the lime
contained in the water), which prevents
the probes from detecting the correct
degree of dryness.
The reservoir must be re-inserted correctly. If this is not done the Empty Tank
pilot light Empty Tank comes on during
the next drying cycle and the programme
stops, leaving the laundry damp.
The buzzer will sound for 1 minute.
After emptying and inserting the reservoir the START-button has to be
depressed again to allow the programme to continue.

To save energy and to help protect the
environment,we recommend that you
follow these hints:
• Try to load the maximum capacity of
the machine as small loads are
uneconomical.
• Always load well spun laundry. The
higher the spin speed, the lower the
electricity consumption and the shorter
the drying times.
• Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids
creasing and saves energy.
Select the drying programme
according to the type of laundry and
the required degree of dryness.
• To utilize the maximum load, laundry
which is tobe dried ready to put away
(store dry) can be dried together with
items to be ironed. To do this,
select the programme for iron-dry,
remove the iron-dry items at the end of
the programme and then finish-dry the
rest of the load.
• Clean the filters regularly to avoid
excessive drying times and high
electricity consumption.
• Ventilate the room well. The room
temperature should not exceed +35°C
during drying.
