Appliance positioning
• It is recommended that, for your convenience,
the appliance is positioned close to your
washing machine.
• The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean
place, where dirt does not build up.
• Air must be able to circulate freely all round
the appliance. Do not obstruct the front ventilation grille or the air intake grilles at the back
of the appliance.
• To keep vibration and noise to a minimum
when the tumble dryer is in use, it should be
placed on a firm, level surface.
• Once in its permanent operating position,
check that the tumble dryer is absolutely level
with the aid of a spirit level. If it is not, raise or
lower the feet until it is.
• The feet must never be removed. Do not restrict the floor clearance through deep pile
carpets, strips of wood or similar. This might
cause heat built-up which would interfere
with the operation of the appliance.
• The hot air emitted by the tumble dryer can
reach temperatures of up to 60°C. The appliance must therefore not be installed on floors
which are not resistant to high temperatures.
• When operating the tumble dryer, the room
temperature must not be lower than +5°C
and higher than +35°C, as it may affect the
performance of the appliance.
• Should the appliance be moved, it must be
transported vertically.
• The appliance must not be installed behind a
lockable door, a sliding door a door with a
hinge on the opposite side to that of the appliance in such a way that a full opening of
the tumble dryer is restricted.
Removing transport safety packaging
Caution! Before use all parts of the
transport packaging must be removed.
1. Open loading door.
2. Pull off adhesive
strips from inside machine on top of drum.
3. Remove foil hose
and polystyrene padding from the machine.
Fitting the vent hose
To simplify the installation, there is a choice of
vent outlets: one at the back, the others in the
left and right-hand side. Connect the hose to
whichever is the more convenient by pulling the
ring nut (A) from the vent outlet at the back,
screwing it on to the hose and pushing it firmly
back into place. The unused vents should now
be sealed with the special snap covers provided.
If the hose is long and
the room temperature
low, the moisture might
condense to water
inside the hose. This is
an unavoidable natural
phenomenon. To
prevent this water from
Iying in the hose or
flowing back into the tumble dryer, it is
advisable to drill a small hole (via. 3 mm) in the
lowest point of the hose and to place a small
container below it. (See picture, point B).
Once connected to the dryer, run the vent hose
to the desired outlet point, ensuring that the
run’s overall length is less than 2 m, and that it
contains no more than two bends. As to the
outlet itself, if you have decided on a fixed wall/
window grille, a good local builder’s merchant
should be able to supply you with the necessary
fittings and installation advice.
It is important not to
connect the vent hose
to, for example, a
cooker hood, or a
chimney or flue pipe
designed to carry the
exhaust from a fuel
burning appliance.
Note that to avoid condensation problems, it is
essential that the dryer be fitted with the flexible
hose to carry its “exhaust” at least beyond the
kitchen units; preferable outside the kitchen. In
order to prevent the appliance from overheating,
it is important that the steam exhaust is unobstructed. Therefore, in case of a permanent
hose fitted to an exterior wall or ceiling, it must
be ensured an exhaust capacity of at least 150
m3/h. If the dryer is fitted next to kitchen units,
make sure that the vent hose is not squashed. If
the hose is partially squashed, drying efficiency
will be reduced, resulting in longer drying times
and higher energy consumption. If the hose is
completely squashed, the safety cut-outs with
which the machine is fitted may operate. When
operating the tumble dryer, the room temperature must not be lower than +5°C and higher
than +35°C, as it may affect the performance of
the appliance.
Electrical connection
Details on mains voltage, type of current and the
fuses required should be taken from the rating
plate. The rating plate is fitted near the loading
aperture (see “Product description” chapter).
Connect the machine to an earthed socket, in
accordance with current wiring regulations.
Warning! The manufacturer declines
any responsibility for damage or
injury through failure to comply with the
above safety precautions.
Should the appliance power supply cable
need to be replaced, this must be carried
out by an authorised service engineer or a
qualified electrician. .
The appliance is supplied with a 13 amp plug
fitted. In the event of having to change the fuse
in the plug supplied, a 13 amp ASTA approved
BS 1363/A fuse must be used.
Ensure that the cut off plug is disposed of
Warning! The plug must be accessible
after installing the machine.
Permanent connection
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
1 Blue - Neutral
2 cord clamp
3 Brown - Live
4 Green and Yellow - Earth
The wire coloured green and yellow must be
connected to the terminal marked with the letter
«E» or by the earth symbol
or coloured green
and yellow.
The wire coloured blue must be connected to
the terminal «N» or coloured black.
The wire coloured brown must be connected to
the terminal marked «L» or coloured red.
Upon completion there must be no cut, or stray
strands of wire present and the cord clamp
must be secure over the outer sheath.
Warning! A cut off plug inserted into a
13 amp socket is a serious safety
(shock) hazard.
In the case of permanent connection it is necessary that you install a double pole switch between the appliance and the electricity supply
(mains), with a minimum gap of 3 mm between
the switch contacts and of a type suitable for
the required load in compliance with the current
electrical regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green
earth cable at any point.
Door reversal
To make it easier to load or unload the laundry,
the door can be reversed. The door must only
be reversed by an authorised service engineer.
Please contact your local Service Force Centre.
The engineer will carry out the door reversal at
your cost.

Environmental tips
• In the dryer, laundry becomes fluffy and soft.
Fabric softeners are not therefore needed
when washing.
• Your dryer will function most economically if
– always keep the ventilation slots on the
base of the dryer unobstructed;
– use the loading volumes specified in the
programme overview;
– clean the filter after each drying cycle;
– spin the laundry well before drying.
In the event of technical faults, please first
check whether you can remedy the problem
yourself with the help of the operating instructions (Chapter “What to do if…”).
If you were not able to remedy the problem
yourself, please contact your local service centre.
