Installation
GB
Where to put your dryer
Place your dryer at a distance from gas
ranges, stoves, heaters, or cook tops
because flames can damage the
appliance.
Minimum gap 10mm
If you are going to
install the appliance
under a work counter,
be sure to leave a
Minimum gaps
10mm space between
15mm
the top and any other
objects on or above
the machine and a
15mm space between
the sides and lateral furnishings or walls. This
is to ensure proper air circulation.
The appliance must be installed with the
rear surface placed against a wall.
●
●
Electrical connections
Make sure of the following before you
insert the plug into the the electrical socket:
Make sure your hands are dry.
The socket must have an earth connection.
The socket must be able to sustain the
machines maximum power, which is
indicated on the rating label (see Dryer
Description).
Power voltage must be within the values
indicated on the rating label (see Dryer
Description).
The socket must be compatible with the
dryers plug. Should this not be the case,
replace the plug or the socket.
●
●
●
●
●
! We do not recommend that the dryer is
installed in a cupboard but the dryer must
never be installed behind a lockable door,
a sliding door or a door with a hinge on
the opposite side to that of the dryer door.
! The dryer must not be installed outdoors,
even if the space is sheltered. It can be
very dangerous if it is exposed to rain or
storms.
! Once installed, the dryers electrical wire
and plug must be within easy reach.
! Do not use extension cords.
! The power cord must not be bent or
squashed.
! The power cord should be regularly
checked. If the supply cord is damaged, it
must be replaced by the manufacturer, its
service agent or similarly qualified
persons in order to avoid a hazard. New or
longer power cords are supplied at an extra
charge by authorised dealers.
! The manufacturer denies any responsibility
should any of these rules not be followed.
Water drain
! If in doubt about any of the above consult a
qualified electrician.
Ventilation
When the dryer is in use, there has to be adequate
ventilation. Make sure you put your dryer in an
environment that is not damp and has proper air
circulation throughout. Airflow around the dryer is
essential to condense the water produced during the
washing, the dryer will not operate efficiently in an
enclosed space or cupboard.
! If using the dryer in a small or cold room some
condensation could be experienced.
If your dryer is installed next to a drain the water can be
plumbed into this drain. This does away with the need to
empty the water container. If the dryer is stacked onto or
installed next to a washing machine it can share the same
drain.
The height of the drain must be less than 3' (1m) from the
bottom of the dryer.
Remove the existing hose from
position shown in picture A.
picture A
Then fit a suitable length of hose to
picture B
position shown in picture B.
! Make sure that the hose is not squashed or kinked when
the dryer is in its final location.

Before you start using your dryer
Once you have installed your dryer and before you
use it, clean the inside of the drum to remove any dust
that could have accumulated during transport.
Maximum load
Natural fibres : 8 kg

Warnings
GB
To minimise the risk of fire in your
tumble dryer, the following should be
observed:
Tumble dry items only if they have been
washed with detergent and water, rinsed
and been through the spin cycle. It is a
fire hazard to dry items that HAVE NOT
been washed with water.
Do not dry garments that have been
treated with chemical products.
Do not tumble dry items that have been
spotted or soaked with vegetable or
cooking oils, this constitutes a fire hazard.
Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously,
especially when exposed to heat sources
such as a tumble dryer. The items become
warm, causing an oxidisation reaction with
the oil, Oxidisation creates heat. If the heat
cannot escape, items can become hot
enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or
storing oil-effected items can prevent heat
from escaping and so create a fire hazard.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics containing
vegetable or cooking oil or those that have
been contaminated with hair care products
be placed in a tumble dryer they should
first be washed with extra detergent - this
will reduce, but not eliminate the hazard.
They should not be removed from the dryer
and piled or stacked while hot.
Do not tumble dry items that have
previously been cleaned in or washed in,
soaked in or soiled with petrol/gasoline,
dry cleaning solvents or other flammable
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
or explosive substances. Highly flammable
substances commonly used in domestic
environments including cooking oil,
acetone, denatured alcohol, kerosene,
spot removers, turpentine, waxes and
wax removers. Ensure these items have
been washed in hot water with an extra
amount of detergent before being dried
in the tumble dryer.
Do not tumble dry items containing foam
rubber (also known as latex foam), or
similarly textured rubber like materials.
Foam rubber materials can, when
heated, produce fire by spontaneous
combustion.
Fabric softener or similar products
should not be used in a tumble dryer to
eliminate the effects of static electricity
unless the practice is specifically
recommended by the manufacturer of
the fabric softener product.
Do not tumble dry undergarments that
contain metal reinforcements eg. bras
with metal reinforcing wires. Damage to
the tumble dryer can result if the metal
reinforcements come loose during drying.
Do not tumble dry rubber, plastic articles
such as shower caps or babies water
proof covers, polythene or paper.
Do not tumble dry rubber backed
articles, clothes fitted with foam rubber
pads, pillows, galoshes and rubber
coated tennis shoes.
Remove all objects from pockets, such
as lighters and matches.
! WARNING: Never stop the dryer before the end of the drying cycle unless all items are
quickly removed and spread out so that the heat is dissipated.

Maintenance and Care
Switching off the electricity
! Unplug your dryer when not using it,
when cleaning it and during all
maintenance operations.
! Failure to empty the water container may cause
the following:
- The dryer will stop heating (so the load may still
be damp at the end of the drying cycle).
●
Clean the filter after each cycle
The filter is an important
part of your dryer:
it accumulates lint and
fluff that is formed while
drying.
When finished drying, clean the filter by
rinsing it under running water or with your
vacuum cleaner. Should the filter become
clogged up, the airflow inside the dryer will
be seriously compromised: drying times
lengthen and you will consume more
energy. It may also damage your dryer.
The filter is found in front of the dryer trim
(see diagram on next page).
Removing the filter:
1. Pull the plastic grip of
the filter upwards.
2. Clean the filter and
replace it correctly.
Ensure the filter is fully
located flush into
the tumble dryer trim.
GB
Priming the water collection system
When your dryer is new, the water container will not
collect water until the system is primed.
This will take 1 or 2 drying cycles. Once primed it will
collect water during every drying cycle.
Cleaning the condenser unit
Periodically (every month) remove the
condenser unit and clean any build up of
fluff from between the plates by rinsing it
under the tap with cold water.
This should be done with cold water from
the rear of the condenser.
Removing the condenser:
1. Unplug the dryer and
open the door.
2. Pull open the
condenser cover (see
diagram).
Release the three
catches by turning 90˚
counter-clockwise
then pull on the grip and
remove from the dryer.
! Do not use the dryer without replacing
the filter.
Empty the water container after each
cycle
Clean the surface of the seals and replace,
with the arrows pointing upwards making
sure that the catches have been secured.
Pull the container out of the dryer
and empty it into a sink or other
suitable drain.
Replace the water container
securely.
! Always check and empty the container before you
start a new drying programme.

Remember to empty the water container
after each load.
Cleaning the drum
! Do not use abrasives, steel wool or stainless steel
cleaning agents to clean the drum.
A coloured film may start to appear on the stainless
steel drum, this may be caused by a combination of
water and, or cleaning agents such as fabric conditioner
from the wash. This coloured film will not affect the
dryer performance.
Cleaning the dryer
External parts in metal or plastic and rubber parts
can be cleaned with a damp cloth.
●
Periodically (every 6 months) vacuum the front air
intake grille, to remove any build up of fluff, lint or
dust. Also to remove accumulation of fluff from the
front of the condenser and filter areas, clean
occasionally with a vacuum cleaner.
! Do not use solvents or abrasives.
! Have your dryer checked regularly by authorised
technicians to ensure electrical and mechanical safety
(see Service).

Standard Cotton
This is a programme for cotton items.
The duration of this programme will depend on the size of the load, the dryness setting selected and the spin
speed used in your washer (see Laundry).
The Standard Cotton programme to EU Regulation 392/2012 is Programme 1 selection with High Heat and
Dryness Level Cupboard Dry (the standard/default configuration). This is the most efficient programme in terms of
energy consumption (EU 392/2012).

Easy Iron Programme
‘Easy Iron’ is a short 10 minute programme (8 minutes of heat followed by a 2 minute cool tumble period) which
fluffs the fibres of clothing that have been left in the same position/location for an extended period of time. The
cycle relaxes the fibres and makes them easier to iron and fold.
! ‘Easy Iron’ is not a drying programme and should not be used for wet articles of clothing.
For best results:
1. Do not load more than the maximum capacity.
These numbers refer to the dry weight:
Fabric
Maximum load
Cotton and Cotton mixtures
2.5kg
Synthetics
2kg
Denim
2kg
2. Unload the dryer immediately after the end of the programme, hang, fold or iron the articles and put
them away in the closet. Should this not be possible repeat the programme.
The ‘Easy Iron’ effect varies from one fabric to the next. It works well on traditional fabrics like Cotton or Cotton
mix, and less well on acrylic fibres and on materials such as Tencel®.

Sorting your laundry
Drying times
Check symbols on clothing labels to make sure
that the articles can be tumble dried.
●
Sort laundry by fabric type.
●
Empty pockets and check buttons.
●
Close zippers and hooks and tie loose belts and
strings.
●
Wring out each item in order to eliminate as much
excess water as possible.
! Do not load dripping wet clothes into the dryer.
The table (see below) presents APPROXIMATE drying
times in Minutes. Weights refer to dry garments.
●
Times are approximate and can vary depending
upon:
●
Amount of water retained in clothes after spin
cycle: towels and delicates retain a lot of water.
●
Fabrics: items that are the same type of fabric but
different textures and thicknesses may not have
the same drying time.
●
Quantity of laundry: single items or small loads
may take longer to dry.
●
Dryness: If you are going to iron some of your
clothes, they can be taken out while still a bit
damp. Others can be left longer if you need them
to be completely dry.
●
Heat setting.
●
Room temperature: if the room where the dryer is
located is cold, it will take longer for the dryer to
dry your clothes.
●
Bulk: some bulky items can be tumble dried with
care. We suggest that you remove these items
several times, shake them out, and return them to
the dryer until finished.
Maximum load size
Do not load more than maximum capacity.
These numbers refer to dry weight:
Natural fibres: 8kg max (18lb)
Synthetic fibres: 3kg max (6.6lb)
! DO NOT overload the dryer as this could result in
reduced drying performance.
Wash Care Labels
Look at the labels on your garments, especially when
tumble drying for the first time. The following symbols
are the most common:
May be tumble dried
Do not tumble dry
Tumble dry at high heat setting
! Do not over-dry your clothes.
All fabrics contain a little natural moisture, which
keeps them soft and fluffy.

Troubleshooting
One day your dryer seems not to be working. Before you call your Service Centre (see Service), go through the
following troubleshooting suggestions:
Problem:
Possible causes / Solution:
The tumble dryer won’t start.
●
●
The plug is not plugged into the socket, or not making contact.
There has been a power failure.
The fuse has blown. Try to plug another appliance into the socket.
You are using an extension cord? Try to plug the dryer’s power cord
directly into the socket.
The door is not closed securely?
The PROGRAMMES knob has not been set properly (see Start and
Programmes).
The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed (see Start and Programmes).
Drying cycle will not begin.
●
You have set a delayed time (see Start and Programmes).
Its taking a long time to dry.
●
The filter has not been cleaned (see Maintenance).
The water container needs emptying? The empty water light is flashing?
(see Maintenance).
The condenser needs cleaning? (see Maintenance).
The temperature setting is not ideal for the type of fabric you are drying
(see Start and Programmes, and see Laundry).
The correct drying time has not been selected for the load (see Laundry).
The air intake grille is obstructed (see Installation, and see
Maintenance).
The items were too wet (see Laundry).
The dryer was overloaded (see Laundry).

●
Empty water light is flashing
but the dryer has only been
running for a short period.
●
The water container was probably not emptied at the start of the
programme. Do not wait for the empty water signal, always check and
empty the container before starting a new drying programme (see
Maintenance).
Empty water light is on and
the water container is not full.
●
This is normal, the light flashes when the container is full. If the light is on
but not flashing it is just a reminder to empty the container (see Start and
Programmes).
The OPTION lights and the
START/PAUSE light Flash
amber.
●
If the Option lights and the START/PAUSE light flash together with other
lights on, then:
- Turn off and remove the plug. Clean the filter and the condenser
(see Maintenance). Then replace the plug, turn on and start another
programme. If the same combination of lights are on, note down the
lights and contact the Service Centre (see Service).
Programme finishes and
clothes are damper than
expected.
! For safety the dryer has a maximum programme time of 5 hours. If an
automatic programme has not sensed the required final moisture in this time
the dryer will complete the programme and stop. Check the above points
and run the programme again, if the results are still damp, contact the
Service Centre (see Service).
GB
Note: This tumble dryer, in compliance with new energy saving regulations, is fitted with an automatic standby
system which is enabled after about 30 minutes if no activity is detected. Press and hold the ON-OFF button until
the dryer reactivates.

Save energy and respect the environment
●
●
●
Wring out items to eliminate excess water before tumble drying (if you use a washing machine first, select a high spin
cycle). Doing this will save time and energy during drying.
Always dry full loads - you save energy: single items or small loads take longer to dry.
Clean the filter after each use to contain energy consumption costs (see Maintenance).
Recycling and Disposal Information
As part of our continued commitment to helping the environment, we reserve the right to use quality recycled components
to keep down customer costs and minimise material wastage.
●
Disposing of the packaging material: follow local regulations, so the packaging can be recycled.
●
To minimise risk of injury to children, remove the door and plug - then cut off mains cable, flush with the appliance.
Dispose of these parts separately to ensure that the appliance can no longer be plugged into a mains socket.
Disposal of old electrical appliances
The European Directive 2012/19/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), requires that old household
electrical appliances must not be disposed of in the normal unsorted municipal waste stream. Old appliances must
be collected separately in order to optimise the recovery and recycling of the materials they contain and reduce the
impact on human health and the environment.
The crossed out “wheeled bin” symbol on the product reminds you of your obligation, that when you dispose
of the appliance it must be separately collected.
Consumers should contact their local authority or retailer for information concerning the correct disposal of
their old appliance.
