IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Warning - To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or personal
injuries, the following basic precautions should be followed:
1 Read all instructions before using this dryer.
2 The interior of the dryer should be cleaned periodically by qualified service
personnel. An excessive amount of lint build up in the interior of the dryer could
result in inefficient drying and pose a possible fire hazard.
3 The appliance must not be installed behind a lockable door, a sliding door or a door with
a hinge on the opposite side to that of the tumble dryer in such a way that a full opening
of the tumble dryer is restricted.
4 Attention - rear panel can be hot.
5 The tumble dryer should not be used if industrial chemicals have been used to
clean the dryer.
6 The dryer must only be used for its intended purpose.
7 Clean lint screen before or after each load.
8 This appliance is not intended for use by people (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge,
unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the
appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Young children should be
supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
9 Do not operate the dryer if any parts are missing or broken.
10 To avoid fire hazard or electrical shock do not use an adaptor plug or extension
cord or remove grounding prong from electrical power cord. Failure to follow this
warning can cause serious injury, fire or death.
11 To avoid fire hazard or electrical shock do not reach into the drum while the drum is
moving. Wait until the dryer has stopped completely before reaching into the drum.
12 Do not attempt to modify or repair the controls.
13 The final part of a tumble dryer cycle occurs without heat (cool down cycle) to cool
items to a temperature that ensures that they will not be damaged. Never stop a
tumble dryer before the end of the drying cycle unless all items are quickly removed
and spread out so that the heat is dissipated.
14 Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or
spotted with substances such as cooking oil, acetone, alcohol, petrol, kerosene, spot
removers, turpentine,waxes and wax removers, etc. Do not store or use these items
on or in the vicinity of the dryer. Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your
dryer. Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to a chemical reaction that
could cause a load to catch fire. Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially
when exposed to heat sources such as in a tumble dryer. The items become warm,
causing an oxidation reaction in the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat cannot
escape, the items can become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing
oil-affected items can prevent heat from escaping and create a fire hazard. If it is
unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or have been

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer they should first be
washed in hot water with extra detergent - this will reduce, but not eliminate, the
hazard.
15 Do not dry unwashed items in the tumble dryer.
16 Fabric softeners, or similar products, should be used as specified by the fabric
softener instructions.
17 To To prevent fire, do not use heat to dry items containing plastic, foam rubber or
similarly textured rubber-like materials, or items containing feathers or down. Items
such as foam rubber (latex foam), shower caps, waterproof textiles, rubber backed
articles and clothes or pillows fitted with foam rubber pads should not be dried in the
tumble dryer.
18 This dryer must be properly installed in accordance with the installation instructions
before it is used.
19 Do not install or store this dryer where it will be exposed to water
and /or the weather. Keep surrounding areas free from the accumulation of lint, dust
and dirt.
20 To prevent shock hazard and assure stability during operation, the dryer must be
installed and electrically grounded by a qualified service person in accordance with
local codes.
21 Do not sit on top of the dryer.
22 If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent
or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.
23 Always disconnect dryer from electrical supply before attempting any service.
24 Disconnect power cord by grasping the plug, not the cord. Do not repair or replace any
part of the dryer or attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended in the
user-maintenance instructions.
25 Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded, remove the dryer door to
prevent accidental entrapment.
26 Remove all objects from pockets such as lighters and matches.
Caution, risk of fire - this is a safety symbol. Failure to follow the warnings
outlined in these user instructions can cause a fire hazard.

Free standing
The dryer stands on the floor and can easily be moved into position. Ensure
that it is placed on a level floor. Also ensure there is at least 50 mm air
clearance between the back of the dryer and the wall to allow fresh air flow
for efficient operation even using the front venting option.
Attention:
Please don’t put a heavy
load on the dryer’s top panel,
such as a basketry full of
wet laundry.
Inverted wall mounting
The dryer can be mounted on the wall in the inverted position only by following
these instructions.
Invert the dryer so that the control panel is at the bottom (see figure 4) this
allows easier access to the controls.
1. Determine the location of the dryer on the wall and mark the bracket
position.
A minimum 50 mm is needed between the top of the dryer and the ceiling
for ease of installation;
If mounting above a washing machine, allow sufficient room to open the lid
of the washer.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Change the venting mode
There are three venting options:
Front venting
The exhaust grill has a range of positions, which allows you to select the optimum
exhaust air angle. Simply hold the grill and rotate it until you reach the desired position.
Note: If the dryer is mounted on the wall you must use the front venting option.
Rear venting
If you want to choose the rear venting mode, the exhaust grill at the front of the dryer
needs to be replaced with the outlet cover from the back panel of the dryer. Gently
open the grill, using a thin tool such as a key. Next, remove the cover from the
back panel and clip it into the grill space at the front panel. The exhaust grill is not
required when using a flexible hose.
Note: If the dryer used rear venting option without the flexible hose, it must be keeped
away from the wall not less than 50cm.
