Contents
These warnings have been provided in the interest of safety. You MUST read them carefully before installing or
using the appliance.
Installation
General safety
• Any electrical work required to install this appliance
should be carried out by a qualified electrician or
competent person.
• It is dangerous to alter the specifications or attempt
to modify this product in any way.
• Under no circumstances should you attempt to
repair the machine yourself. Repairs carried out by
inexperienced persons may cause injury or serious
malfunctioning. Contact your local Electrolux
Service Centre. Always insist on genuine
Electrolux spare parts.
• Care must be taken to ensure that the appliance
does not stand on the electrical supply cable.
• If the machine is situated on a carpeted floor,
please adjust the feet in order to allow air to
circulate freely.
• This tumble dryer is designed to be vented through
to the open air. It should have its own ventilation
system which should not be joined with any other
ventilation system connected to any other
appliance.
Child safety
• Children are often not aware of how dangerous
electrical appliances can be. When the machine is
working, children should be carefully supervised
and not be allowed to play with the appliance.
Use
• The packaging components (e.g. plastic film,
polystyrene) can be dangerous to children - danger
of suffocation! Keep them out of children’s reach.
• This appliance is designed for domestic use only. If
the machine is used for any other purposes or is
not used correctly, the manufacturer accepts no
responsibility for any damage that might occur.
• Make sure that children or pets do not climb into
the drum.
• When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the
electrical supply cable and destroy the plug with
the remaining cable. Disable the door catch in
order to prevent children from becoming trapped
inside while playing.
• Always unplug the appliance after use.
• Clothes which are dripping wet should not be
placed in the dryer.
• Danger of explosion: Never tumble dry items that
have been in contact with inflammable solvents
(petrol, methylated spirits, dry cleaning fluid and
the like). As these substances are volatile, they
could cause an explosion. Tumble dry only items
washed with water.
• Please make sure that no gas lighters have
accidentally been left in pockets of garments to be
loaded into appliance.
• Do not dry canvas shoes or sports shoes, as they
could get stuck between the door and the drum,
thus blocking this latter.
• Leave the door slightly ajar when the appliance is
not being used. This will allow the seal to be
preserved.
• Clean fluff filters after using the tumble dryer. To
prevent fire risks, do not use the appliance if the
fluff filters are damaged or without filters.
• Do not allow fluff to accumulate around the dryer.

This means that they can be recycled by disposing of
them properly in appropriate collection containers.
Tips for environmental protection
To save energy and to help protect the environment,
we recommend that you follow these hints:
• To utilize the maximum load, laundry which is to be
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 finishdry the rest of the load.
• 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.
• Clean the filters regularly to avoid excessive drying
times and high electricity consumption.
• 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.
• Ventilate the room well. The room temperature
should not exceed +35°C during drying.

The feet must never be removed.
Warning!
Do not restrict the floor clearance through deeppile carpets, strips of wood or similar. This might
cause heat build-up which would interfere with
the operation of the appliance.
Unpacking
Slide out the polythene bag with the
polystyrene stuffing before using the appliance.
Important
When operating the tumble dryer, the room
temperature must not exceed 35°C, as it may affect
the performance of the appliance.
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.
P1106
Positioning
It is recommended that, for your convenience, the
machine is positioned close to your washing machine.
Whilst drying, the tumble dryer will expel a certain
amount of warm, very moist air, and this should be
removed from the room as quickly as possible to
prevent condensation. In an extremely well ventilated
room or close to an open window, this may occur
naturally.
However, in general, it is better to carry the dryer's
exhaust outside via the 100 mm diameter flexible
hose supplied with the appliance; ending either
temporarily at an open window, or permanently at a
fixed ventilation grille, fitted to an exterior wall or
window.
The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean place,
where dirt does not build up.
Make sure there are no obstructing items or material
near the air-intake louvres provided at
the back (e.g. paper, rags etc.).
A
P1028

P1027
Advice: 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 (dia.
3 mm) in the lowest point of the hose and to place a
small container below it.(See picture, point B).
To keep vibration and noise to a minimum when the
dryer is in use, it should be placed on a firm, level
surface.
Once in its permanent operating position, check that
the dryer is absolutely level with the aid of a spirit
level. If it is not, raise or lower the feet until it is.
P1056
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 2.5 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.

ENGLISH
Installation
Electrical connection
This machine is designed to operate on a 230-240 V,
single-phase, 50 Hz supply.
Check that your domestic electrical installation can
take the maximum load required (2.2 kW), also
taking into account any other appliances in use.
Connect the machine to an earthed socket, in
accordance with current wiring regulations.
The manufacturer declines any
responsibility for damage or injury through
failure to comply with the above safety
precaution.
P0055
The appliance is supplied with a 13amp plug fitted.
In the event of having to change the fuse in the plug
supplied, a 13amp ASTA approved (BS1363A) fuse
must be used.
Should the plug need to be replaced for any reason,
proceed as described below.
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in
accordance with the following code:
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.

Stacking kit
P1041
A special stacking kit is available through your
dealer, to enable the mounting of the dryer on top of
your washing machine.
CORD CLAMP
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.
P1107
WARNING:
Door reversal
A cut off plug inserted into a 13 amp
socket is a serious safety (shock) hazard.
Ensure that the cut off plug is disposed of
safely.
To make it easier to load or unload the laundry the
door can be reversed.
This operation must be carried out by qualified
personnel.
Please contact the nearest Electrolux Service
Centre.

• 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.).
• 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.

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.

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.
