Energy-saving tips
■
■
■
■
■
Spin the laundry before drying. The
drier the laundry, the shorter the
drying time will be, thus consuming
less energy.
Load the dryer with the maximum
load.
Note: Do not exceed the maximum
load for the programs, as this
prolongs the drying time and
increases energy consumption.
Ventilate the room and keep the air
inlet on the dryer free to ensure air
exchange.
Clean the fluff filter after each drying
cycle. If the fluff filter is dirty, the
drying time is prolonged and energy
consumption is increased.
Energy saving mode: If the dryer is
not operated for a prolonged period,
it automatically switches off before
the program starts and when the
program has ended to save energy.
The display panel and indicator
lamps go off after a few minutes and
the Start button flashes. To activate
the lighting, press any button, open
or close the dryer door or turn the
program selector.

Preparing the laundry
: Warning
Risk of explosion or fire!
Remove any cigarette lighters and
matches from pockets.
Caution!
The dryer drum and fabrics may be
damaged.
Remove all objects from pockets and
take note of the following information:
■
Tie cloth belts, apron strings, etc.
together or use a laundry bag.
■
Close zips, hooks and eyes, and do
up any buttons.
■
To ensure a consistent drying result,
sort the laundry by fabric type and
drying programme.
■
Remove any metal objects, such as
paper clips, from pockets.
■
Knitted fabrics, such as T-shirts and
jerseys, often shrink slightly the first
time they are tumble-dried. Use a
gentle programme.
■
Do not over-dry easy-care laundry.
This increases creasing of the
laundry.
■
When washing laundry that is to be
tumble-dried afterwards, use the
correct amount of fabric softener as
specified in the manufacturer's
instructions.
12
Sorting washing according to:
c Suitable for tumble drying
a Dry at normal temperature
` Dry at low temperature
b Do not tumble-dry
If you dry thin- or thick-layered fabrics or
fabrics with several layers together,
these will dry to differing degrees. To
achieve an even drying result, you
should therefore only dry laundry of the
same type of fabric and structure
together. If you feel that the laundry is
still too damp afterwards, you can select
a timed programme for subsequent
drying ~ Page 13.
Caution!
Possibility of material damage to the
dryer or laundry.
Do not dry non-breathable fabrics, such
as rubber-coated laundry.

After the end of the programme, warm laundry feels damper than it actually
is. Spread the laundry out and allow the heat to disperse.
■
Finely adjust the dryness level – this extends the drying time but does not
increase the temperature. Your laundry will become drier ~ Page 15.
■
Select a programme with a longer drying time or increase the drying level.
This does not increase the temperature.
■
Select a timed programme for subsequent drying of laundry that is still
damp ~ Page 13.
■
If you have exceeded the maximum load for the programme, the laundry
may not be dried properly.
■
Clean the moisture sensor in the drum. A fine layer of limescale may
adversely affect the performance of the sensors and your washing will not
dry properly ~ Page 22.
■
Drying has been interrupted as a result of a power cut, because the condensate container is full or because the maximum drying time has been
exceeded.
Note: See also the laundry tips ~ Page 12.

Risk of death!
There is a risk of electric shock as the
dryer is operated with electricity.
You should therefore observe the
following:
■
Check the dryer for visible damage.
You must not operate the dryer if it is
damaged.
■
Before connecting the dryer to the

Installation and connection
: Warning
Children may lock themselves in the
dryer, putting their lives at risk!
Do not set up the dryer behind a door
or sliding door, as this may obstruct the
dryer door or prevent it from opening.
Caution!
Risk of injury
■
Due to the heavy weight of the dryer,
you may injure yourself if you lift it.
Do not lift the dryer on your own.
■
You could cut your hands on the
sharp edges of the dryer. Do not
hold the dryer by the sharp edges.
■
Protruding parts on the dryer may
break off when it is lifted or pushed.
Do not move the dryer by holding
onto protruding parts.
Caution!
Risk of material damage to the dryer or

■
Check the dryer for damage caused
during transportation. Never operate
a dryer if it is damaged.
■
Any residual water in the dryer may
freeze and damage the dryer. Do not
install the dryer in rooms that are at
risk of frost.
During installation, ensure that:
■
The dryer is placed on a clean, level
and firm surface,
■
The mains plug can be accessed at
all times,
■
The air inlet on the dryer is kept clear
and there is sufficient ventilation,
■
The area around the dryer is kept
clean and

Changing the condensation
drain
Notes
■
The condensation from the dryer can
either be discharged into the
condensate container or drained off
via a connection to the waste-water
system. At the factory, the
condensation from the dryer is
discharged into the condensate
container.
■
If the condensation drain is installed,
residual water remains in the
condensate container because of
the dryer's self-cleaning function.
Change the condensation drain as
follows:
1. Remove the accessory from the
dryer drum.
2. Delivery status of the dryer. The hose
for discharging the condensation
into the condensate container is
secured to the connecting piece.
3. Disconnect the hose from the
connecting piece and move it into
the "parked" position.
Installation and connection
4. Remove the drain hose from the
accessory and secure it to the empty
connecting piece.
5. Depending on how you connect the
hose (A, B or C), secure the drain
hose with the remaining accessories
on the other side.
Caution!
Blocked water can be drawn back
into the dryer and may cause
material damage.
Check that the water can flow away
quickly out of the wash basin. The
drain must not be sealed or blocked.
Caution!
Material damage due to leaks or
draining water.
Secure the drain hose so that it
cannot slip out. Do not kink the drain
hose. Observe the height difference
between the installation surface and
the drain of max. 100 cm, and 80
cm for a drain in a siphon.

6. Pull out the condensate container
fully.
7. Turn the condensate container by
180° onto its underside and release
the stopper which is fitted there. Turn
the container back by 180° and
press the stopper into the opening
on the upper side of the condensate
container.
8. Pull the filter out of the notch and
place it into the recess on the
condensate container.
