Drying hints
Before loading the laundry
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.
• Avoid drying dark clothes with light
coloured fluffy items such as towels
as they could attract the fluff.
• The laundry must be thoroughly spun
before tumble drying.
• Easy-ccare items, too, e.g. shirts,
should be briefly pre-spun before
drying (depending on crease resistance approx. 30 seconds or using
the special brief spin programme of
your washing machine).
• Knitted textiles (knitted underwear)
may shrink a little during drying.
Please do not overdry items of this
type. It is advisable to allow for
shrinkage when choosing the size of
new purchases.
• You can also put starched items into
your dryer. However, to achieve the
desired starched effect, choose the
programme “iron dry”. To remove any
starch residues, wipe out the internal
drum after drying with a moist cloth
and then rub it dry.
• 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,
for at least 30 minutes. This will be
necessary particularly for multilayered
items (e.g. collars, pockets, etc.).
Make sure that no metal objects
are left in the laundry (e.g. hair
clips, safety pins, pins).
Button up pillowcases, close zip
fasteners, hooks and poppers. Tie any
belts or long tapes.
Remove persistent stains before
washing.
Rub particularly soiled areas with a
special detergent or detergent paste.
Treat curtains with special care. Remove
hooks or tie them up in a bag or net.

Objective
Adjusting the level
of conductivity
Implementation
Water contains, a variable quantity of limestone and mineral salts
of which quantities vary according to geographical locations thus
varying its conductivity values.
Relevant variations of the conductivity of the water compared to
those prefixed by the factory could slightly influence the residual
humidity of the laundry at the end of the cycle. Your dryer allows
you to regulate the sensitivity of the drying sensor based on
conductivity values of the water by using the following procedure.
To access adjustment mode:
1. Turn the programme selector dial to switch on the appliance.
2. In selection mode,press simultaneously the buttons
Buzzer and Delicate.
Press the buttons down until the pilot lights above each one
begin to flash and one of the pilot lights indicating the Drying,
cooling and End/Anticrease.
Adjusting the level of conductivity:
Press the Start/Pause button sequentially: the level of
conductivity is indicated by the lighting of the horizontal
hyphens.

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.
The light Filters is on to remind you of
this operation.
P1111
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.
After a while, a whitish patina due to
detergent residue on laundry forms on
the filters. When this occurs, clean the
filters with warm water using a brush.
Remove the filter in the door opening
as per picture (it can be positioned with
the tooth facing to the left or to the
right).

Do not use the appliance without filters.
Cleaning the drum
When your laundry does not reach the desired
degree of dryness, in other words, when it
turns out either too dry or too damp, we
advise you to clean the inside of the drum with
a cloth soaked with vinegar.
This will eliminate the slight patina that has
formed in the drum (due to residues of
detergent and softeners used in the washing, and to the lime contained in the water),
which prevents the probes from detecting
the correct degree of dryness.

Installation
Unpacking
All transit bolts and packing must be
removed before using the appliance.
Slide out the polythene bag with the
polystyrene stuffing before using the
appliance Pull off adhesive strips from
inside machine on top of drum.
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.). 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.
P0046
Should the appliance be moved, it must
be transported vertically.
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 feet must never be removed.
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.
Important
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.

Fitting the vent hose
Depending on the position of the tumble
dryer to an outside wall there is a choice
of 3 vent outlets: One at the back, the
others on the left or right hand side.
Connect the hose to which ever 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.
A
P1028
A
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.
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).
P1056
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.
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
P0055
Note that to avoid condensation
problems, it is essential that the dryer
is 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.
Stacking kit
A special stacking kit is available through
your dealer, to enable the mounting of
the dryer on top of a front loading
washing machine with cover’s depth
between 48 and 60 cm.
Read carefully the instructions supplied
with the kit.
Before switching on, make sure the
electricity supply voltage is the same as
that indicated on the appliance’s rating
plate. (See picture on page 5).
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 (BS1362) fuse must be used.
Should the plug need to be replaced for
any reason, proceed as described
below.

necessary that you install a double pole
switch between the appliance and the
electricity supply (mains), with a
minimum gap of 3mm 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

Ecological hints
To save water, energy and to help
protect the environment, we recommend
that you follow these tips:
• Normally soiled laundry may be
washed without prewashing in order to
save detergent, water and time (the
environment is protected too!).
• The machine works more
economically if it is fully loaded.
• With adequate pre-treatment, stains
and limited soiling can be removed;
the laundry can then be washed at a
lower temperature.
• Measure out detergent according to
the water hardness, the degree of
soiling and the quantity of laundry
being washed.
