Fluff Filter...
! You MUST clean the fluff filter after EVERY drying
Open the door of your
Pull out the filter (using
the two finger grips).
Clean any fluff deposits
from the filter mesh.
Refit the filter - NEVER
run the dryer without the
filter in position.
! Failure to clean the filter after EVERY drying cycle will affect the drying performance of your machine.
- It will take longer to dry and as a result will use more electricity during drying.
Water Container...
! You MUST empty the water container after EVERY
drying cycle.
Pull the water container
towards you and remove
it fully from the dryer.
Empty all the water
collected in the water
Refit the water container,
ensuring that it is pushed
fully back into position.
! The ‘Empty Water’ light
stays on - To remind you to
empty the water container
at the start and at the
end of each programme.
! Failure to empty the water container will result in:
- The machine will stop heating (so the load may still be wet at the end of the drying cycle).
- The ‘Empty Water’ light will flash to tell you that the water container is full.
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.
Important Information

! Keep this instruction booklet on hand in order to refer to it when necessary. Take it with you when you move, and
should you sell this appliance or pass it on to another party, make sure that this booklet is supplied along with the
dryer so that the new owner may be informed about warnings and suggestions on how the appliance works.
! Read these instructions carefully; the following pages contain important information on installation and suggestions
on how the appliance works.
Where to put your dryer
Electrical connections
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
10mm space between the
Minimum gaps
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.
! Make sure that the back vents are not obstructed.
Make sure of the following before you insert the plug
into the the electrical socket:
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.
! 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.
Door Reversal Instructions
Door catch
Door latch
Ensure your hands are dry.
The socket must be grounded.
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.
! Do not use extension cords.
! 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
! Once installed, the dryers electrical wire and plug must be
within easy reach.
! The power cord must not be bent or squashed.
! The power cord supplied is fitted with a BS1363 plug and a 13
amp BS1362 fuse. If you need to replace the fuse, use only
those rated at 13 amp (13A) and ASTA approved to BS1362.
Moulded plug
! The plug must not be used
without the fuse cover in place.
If a replacement fuse
holder/cover is required, it must
be of the same colour coding or
wording as shown on the base of
the plug.
Replacements are available from
authorised dealers.
Changing the plug
The wires in the power cord are coloured in accordance
with the following:
Green and Yellow
(Earth) wire to terminal
marked ‘E’, symbol
or coloured green and
Blue (Neutral) wire to
terminal marked ‘N’ or
coloured black.
13A ASTA approved
fuse to BS1362.
Brown (Live) wire to
terminal marked ‘L’ or
coloured red.
Cord clamp
The door of your dryer is reversible and can easily be
changed. Exchange diagonally hinge brackets and
blanking screws. Exchange door latch and catch with
their opposite blanking plates (see diagram above).
Water drain
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. (see Plumbing your Dryer).
! If the plug being replaced is a non-rewirable type,
then the cut-off plug must be disposed of safely. DO
NOT leave it where it can be inserted into a socket and
create a shock hazard.
! The power supply cord should be checked periodically
and replaced by a cord specially prepared for this dryer
and fitted only by authorised technicians (see Service).
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.
! If in doubt about any of the above consult a
qualified electrician.
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.

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:
Maximum load
Cotton and Cotton mixtures
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®.
Sport programme
Special shoes
This is a programme to dry one pair of sports shoes sized 37-46 (4-11).
The shoes must have been washed and spun at a minimum spin speed of 400rpm.
They must be used with the shoe rack provided. If you tumble shoes in the drum
you will damage your dryer.
Remove the filter from its position in the front of the dryer and fit the rack.
Tuck the laces inside the shoes and load shoes with toes down and soles facing you.
Drying times will vary dependant on the size and style of shoe. If shoes are not
completely dry at the end of the programme, run the programme again.
! Do not dry shoes with Gel inserts or flashing lights.
! Only dry shoes made from Synthetics or Canvas materials.
! When finished remove shoe rack and replace the filter.
Special sports
This is a programme for tumble dryer safe garments, such as Tracksuits and Shorts marked with the symbol
It can be used for load sizes up to 1.5kg
We recommend that garments are turned inside out before drying.
This programme will take up to 130 minutes. The actual time will vary depending on the size and density of the
load and the spin speed used in your washer.
Loads dried using this programme are usually ready to wear, but on some heavier garments the edges may be
slightly damp.

Wring out each item in order to eliminate as much
excess water as possible.
! Do not load dripping wet clothes into the dryer.
Look at the labels on your garments, especially when
tumble drying for the first time. The following symbols
are the most common:
Maximum load size
Do not load more than maximum capacity.
These numbers refer to dry weight:
Natural fibres: 7kg max (15lb)
Synthetic fibres: 3kg max (6.6lb)
May be tumble dried
Do not tumble dry

If this happens simply give them an additional short
period of drying.
Note: The last 10 minutes of any time set is the
Cool Tumble, so allow for this when setting the time,
as this period will not dry your laundry.
Articles that containing rubber or rubber-like
materials or plastic film (pillows, cushions, or PVC
rainwear), any other flammable articles or objects
that contain flammable substances (towels soiled
with hair spray).
Glass fibres (certain types of draperies)
Items which have been dry cleaned
Items with the ITCL Code
(see Special
clothing items). These can be cleaned with special
at-home dry cleaning products. Follow instructions
Large bulky items (quilts, sleeping bags, pillows,
cushions, large bedspreads etc). These expand
when drying and would prevent airflow through
the dryer.
Special clothing items
Times are approximate and can vary depending
Blankets and Bedspreads: acrylic items (Acilan,
Courtelle, Orion, Dralon) must be dried with special
care on LOW heat setting. Avoid drying for a long
period of time.
Pleated or creased garments: read the manufacturer’s
drying instructions on the garment.
Starched articles: do not dry these with non-starched
items. Make sure that as much of the starch solution is
removed from the load as possible before placing it in
the dryer. Do not over-dry: the starch will become
powdery and leave your clothing limp, which defeats
the purpose of starch.
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.

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 2002/96/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.
Saving energy and respecting the
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).
Maintenance and Care
Switching off the electricity
Cleaning the drum
! Unplug your dryer when not using it, when cleaning
it and during all maintenance operations.
! Do not use abrasives, steel wool or stainless steel
cleaning agents to clean the drum.
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).
Removing the filter:
1. Pull the plastic grip of the filter upwards (see diagram).
2. Clean the filter and replace it correctly.
Ensure the filter is fully located flush into the tumble
dryer trim.
! Do not use the dryer without replacing the filter.
Empty the water container after each
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.
Check the drum after each cycle
Turn the drum manually in order to remove small items
(handkerchiefs) that could have been left behind.
