• Sorting by fabric type:
– Cotton/linen for programmes in
the COTTON programme
group.
– Mixed fibres and synthetics for
programmes in the
SYNTHETICS programme
group.
• Sorting by care label. The care labels
mean:
n
Drying in the tumble dryer
possible in principle
m
Dry at normal
temperature
l
k
Dry at
reduced temperature (press
SPECIAL CARE button!)
Drying in the
tumble dryer not
possible
Important: Do not place in the appliance any wet laundry which is not
specified on the care label as being
suitable for tumble-drying.
This appliance can be used for all wet
laundry items which are labelled as suitable for tumble-drying.
• Do not dry new, coloured textiles together with light-coloured laundry
items. Textile colours may bleed.
• Do not dry cotton jersey and knitwear with the
EXTRA programme. Items may shrink!
• Wool and wool-like textiles can be
dried using the WOOL programme.
Before the drying cycle spin the
woollen textiles as well as possible
(max. 1200 rpm). Only dry woollen
textiles together which are similar or
the same with respect to material,
colour and weight. Please dry heavy
laundry items made of wool separately.
starting up for the first time electrolux 13
Special notes about Iron Aid
• The following textiles cannot be
treated using an Iron Aid programme:
woollen knitwear, leather, textiles
with large metal, wooden or plastic
parts, textiles with rusting metal
parts, oilskins or wax cotton garments.
• To smooth or freshen laundry with an
Iron Aid programme, sort laundry by
size, weight, material and colour.
Only smooth textiles together that
are similar in terms of size, weight,
material and colour.
Preparing laundry - general
• To avoid laundry becoming tangled:
close zips, button up duvet covers
and tie loose ties or ribbons (e.g. of
aprons).
• Empty pockets. Remove metal items
(paper clips, safety pins, etc).
• Turn items with double-layered fabrics inside out (e.g. with cotton-lined
anoraks, the cotton layer should be
outermost). These fabrics will then
dry better.
Special notes about Iron Aid
• Before treating garments with an Iron
Aid programme, remove stains by
washing or using localised stain removal.
Starting up for the first time
Switching appliance on / switching light on
• Do not dry new, coloured textiles together with light-coloured laundry
items. Colours may fade (check colour fastness of fabric when damp in
an inconspicuous area).

Fill water tank
You must fill up the water tank before
using an Iron Aid programme for the first
time. Use the distilled water provided if
there is not yet any condensed water
from previous drying programmes (see
chapter on ‘Cleaning and Maintenance,
Emptying condensed water container’).
If, after an Iron Aid programme is selected, the
water tank indicator on the
display lights up, you will need to fill up
the water tank with distilled water. Otherwise, you will not be able to start any
Iron Aid programme.
Important Only fill the water tank
with distilled or fully desalinated
water. Do not use tap water or additives! You can also use the condensed water from the tank, as long
as you filter it first (use the canister
supplied with the filter fitted: see
figure opposite).
1. Pull drawer containing condensed
water container out a little (1), then
pull out the water tank’s filler neck
(2).
iron aidTM - steam-system electrolux 15

All information on applications is for
guidance only. Smoothing results
may vary depending on the selected
programme and especially the fittings and material properties of the
textile. The results can be improved
if necessary by using different programmes and steam volumes. For
example, some textiles containing
more than 20% synthetics but with
the right fittings may behave more
like cotton textiles in an Iron Aid
programme. You may therefore get
better smoothing results by selecting a cotton Iron Aid programme.
Given the wide range of different
textile grades and properties that
can be manufactured today using
different mechanical and chemical
processes, we recommend running
the first few Iron Aid programmes at
low steam levels and with a small
number of garments that are as similar as possible. Later, you can carefully start to vary the conditions of
Iron Aid programmes to learn from
experience how to get the best results from the volume of laundry
loaded, the quality of the textiles
and the most suitable steam levels
and Iron Aid programmes.
Please also note the accompanying
‘Textile Guide’.

Selecting the programme
Use the programme selector to set the
programme you require. The estimated
programme duration (in minutes) appears in the
multi-display.
Select steam level (LOAD)
To achieve the best results, different steam levels are required for different volumes of laundry.
The LOAD button is used to set the
required steam level: MIN, MED or
MAX.
All Iron Aid programmes, apart from the
REFRESH programme, automatically
recognise the remaining dampness in
clothes. When laundry is wet, a drying
cycle is activated first if required.
The table shows the steam levels appropriate for the selected load, under
LOAD.
1. Press the LOAD button repeatedly
until the desired steam level (MIN,
MED or MAX) is shown in the display.
If the LOAD button is not pressed after
an Iron Aid programme is selected, the
medium steam level (MED) is selected
automatically. If you select the
REFRESH programme, MIN is selected automatically.
overview of iron aidtm programmes electrolux 19
Important: If in doubt, always select
a lower steam level first until you
have more experience with load volumes, fabric types and the corresponding optimum steam level.
If too high a steam level is selected,
garments may lose their shape. If
too low a steam level is selected,
creases may remain.
Selecting additional functions
The additional functions available for the
Iron Aid programmes are BUZZER,
TIME DELAY and the CHILD LOCK.
BUZZER
The appliance is supplied with the
BUZZER function activated.
When the drying cycle has finished, an

an audible signal sounds at regular intervals.
The Iron Aid programme is automatically followed by an anti-crease
phase, including brief steam phases, which lasts around 90 minutes.
The drum rotates during the anti-crease
phase. This keeps the laundry loose and
free of creases. It can be removed at any
point during the anti-crease phase, except during steam phases (look for
steam animation in the display!). Laundry should be removed as quickly as
possible.
1. Open the loading door to remove the
laundry.
2. Before removing the laundry, remove
fluff from the micro-fine filter. It is best
to use a damp hand for this purpose.

time.
To retain the effects of the Iron Aid
treatment, clothes must be removed
one garment at a time during the
anti-crease phase and hung immediately on a clothes hanger to dry
(for at least 5-15 mins, depending on
fabric and selected steam level). Do
up the buttons and tug the garment
into shape, paying particular attention to cuffs and seams.
4. Turn the programme knob to O OFF.
Important! After each drying cycle
– Clean the micro-fine filter and fine filter
– Drain the condensed water container
