4.11 Adjusting the level of conductivity (on some models)
The conductivity of the water used to wash the fabrics varies from zone to zone. The conductimetric sensor
is calibrated to a standard value: any major variations in the level of conductivity may affect the final drying
result (i.e. the washing may be too dry or too humid):
These variations are more noticeable in the "slightly damp" or "iron-ready" cycles; the "cupboard dry cycles
are almost entirely unaffected by variations in conductivity.
The sensitivity of the conductimetric sensor can be adjusted according to the conductivity of the water.
4.11.1 Procedure

5 Description of operation of the appliance
When the selector is turned from OFF position to a drying programme, the icons relative to the drying phases
light up and the START/PAUSE LED flashes with green light.
During this phase the various options can be entered, and the corresponding LEDs will light.
The lower right display shows the maximum time of drying cycle.
If an option that is incompatible with the selected cycle is entered, the Buzzer sounds, the Display shows Err
while the LEDs flash.
Selecting one or more options the Display shows an increase or decrease of the time.
If the position of the selector is changed after choosing the options, but before pressing START/PAUSE
button, the options will be cancelled.
5.1
Operation of a cycle
A drying cycle starts after a programme has been selected using the selector, one option (if necessary) has
been selected and the START/PAUSE pushbutton has been pressed.
The LED corresponding to the START/PAUSE button remains lit with green light and, at the same time, the LED
corresponding to the phase currently being performed lights and the display shows the maximum drying time.
The drying cycle consists of the following phases:
•
DRYING
If the cycle is automatic, its duration will be the time necessary to remove the humidity until the desired
degree of final humidity is reached (maximum cycle time 180 minutes at full power and 240 minutes at half
power).
If the cycle is timer-controlled, the duration will be the time selected by the user.
•
COOLING
For timer-controlled cycles, the maximum duration of the cooling phase is 10 minutes; for automatic cycles
the duration depends on the temperature inside the drum.
•
ANTI-CREASE
The duration of the anti-crease cycle is 30 minutes.
No modifications to the programmes can be entered after the drying programme has started.
If the position of the selector is changed, the green LED of the START / PAUSE button starts flashing, the
buzzer sounds to warn the user that an incorrect operation has been attempted and the display shows <<Err>>.
If any button is pressed, the green LED of the START / PAUSE button starts flashing, the buzzer sounds to warn
the user that an incorrect operation has been attempted and the display shows <<Err>>.
The options can be selected only after selecting a drying programme at the beginning of the cycle, or during a
cycle after pressing the START/PAUSE button.
To cancel a drying cycle, it is necessary to turn the programme selector to OFF.
5.2
Operation in PAUSE mode
If START/PAUSE is pressed while a drying cycle is being performed, the dryer interrupts the current cycle, the
green LED of the START / PAUSE button flashes and the display shows time to end.
If the selector is turned, the buzzer warns the user of the error.
In this situation, only certain options can be modified, see table of OPTIONS.
If the button relative to an option that cannot be selected is pressed, the buzzer sounds to warn the user of the
error and the display shows <<Err>>.
When START/PAUSE is pressed again, the drying cycle resumes from the point at which it was interrupted.

6 STRUCTURAL AND FUNCTIONAL CHARACTERISTICS
6.1
Drying circuit
Version with canister in upper section
Version with canister in lower section
There are two air circuits inside the dryer:
ƒ the first is a warm-air circuit, which is sealed within the appliance
ƒ the second is an open cold-air circuit, which circulates air from the ambient through certain sections of
the appliance.
In the sealed warm-air circuit, the air circulates inside the appliance:
The fan (1), ducts the air through a heat exchanger (5), and then to the heater unit (2). The heater unit heats
the air, which is then ducted into the drum through the perforations in the rear flange of the drum. The warm,
dry air passes through the wash load, which is agitated by the rotation of the drum, and removes the
humidity from the fabrics; the air, which is now warm and humid, passes then through the front aperture of
the drum via the fluff filter (3) and the lower filter (4), then the air is ducted by the fan (1) to the heat
exchanger (5), where the humidity is condensed.
The air coming from the heat exchanger is now dry and the cycle continues as described above.
The cold-air circuit (the air circulates in one side of the appliance) is not sealed.
The fan (6) draws in air through an air intake on the rear of the appliance, and ducts the air to the heat
exchanger (5), cooling it, after which the air is expelled on the opposite side of the heat exchanger
dissipating inside the appliance and exiting from the venting grille in the plinth.
The warm and cold air circuits cross inside the heat exchanger (5), which results in a thermal exchange
which condenses the humidity contained in the warm air.
The condensation water, which forms in the heat exchanger, is collected in a sump (7) which contains a float
(9):
¾ In versions with the canister in the upper section, a pump (11) ducts the water from the sump (7) to the
canister (8). When the canister is full, any overflow is collected in the canister support and returned
through a tube (not shown in the figure) into the sump (7). This causes the float (9) to rise, thus actioning
the microswitch (10).
¾ In versions with the canister in the lower section, the water flows by gravity from the sump (7) into the
canister (8); when the canister is full, the water level in the sump (7) rises. This causes the float (9) to
rise, thus actioning the microswitch (10).
The electronic control system detects the closure of the microswitch, cuts off the power to the appliance and
switches on a LED warning the user that the canister is full.
The tank capacity is about 4 lt., which is sufficient for one drying cycle.

The drum is rotated by a belt (4), which is driven by the pulley of the drum motor (1) fitted to the base; on the
bearing shield there is a belt tensioner (3), which has the function of increasing the winding angle of the belt
to the drum and works in conjunction with the belt tensioner spring (2).
Bidirectional operation of the drum rotation is determined by the electronic board which inverts the motor
power direction for brief periods. Reversal of the direction of rotation allows the clothes to unroll. During
these short periods, the heater unit is switched off.
The heat exchanger features a safety device which ensures that, if the panel is opened to check the heat
exchanger, a microswitch disconnects the dryer from the power supply).

This area of the memory contains the "firmware" code including the functionalities of the appliance:
Ö Control of electrical loads (motor, pump, heater)
Ö Control of the sensors (NTC, conductimetric sensor, door switch status)
Ö Control of the user interface
Ö Control of the serial port
Ö Control of power failures and alarms
Ö Execution of the drying programme
In standard-production appliances, this area is a Read-Only Memory, and thus cannot be modified.
RAM
This memory contains the variables, i.e. all the dynamic information used during execution of the
programme:
Ö Machine status
Ö Cycle selected
Ö Alarms
The contents of this memory are cancelled each time the appliance is disconnected (by switching off or in
the event of a power failure).
The contents can be read using a computer connected via a DAAS interface.
EEPROM
The EEPROM contains data of various types:
Ö Power failure and machine status, i.e. the information necessary to resume operation of the appliance
after a power failure.
Ö Configuration of the drying cycle: this file describes the various steps in the drying cycle for each
family of appliances (vented, condenser etc.).
Ö Machine configuration: the data contained in this area of memory define the configuration of the
individual appliance, and are interpreted by the functional software. These files define the following:
- Programmes
- Number of buttons and their functions
- Operation of the LEDs
- Operation of the buzzer
- Operational limits (voltage/frequency)
- Identification of the appliance (PNC + ELC + serial number)
- Heater unit power
- Preferential direction of motor rotation

Conductimetric sensor
The conductimetric sensor consists of an electronic circuit (positioned inside the power board) and a section
located externally to the board which consists of the wiring, two brushes (sensors positioned in contact with
the tub shells) and the two tub shells themselves.
The first brush positioned in contact with the front tub shell is
fitted to a hinged support on the duct, and is connected by the
wiring to the electronic circuit. The second brush is positioned
in contact with the drum spindle housed in the spindle casing.
This sensor is connected to the electronic circuit via the
cabinet, which represents the mass of the appliance's
electronic circuit.
The two halves of the drum are separated by an insulating
strip, and therefore the impedance between the front and rear
shells (to which the sensors are connected) is infinite when the
drum is empty. The impedance varies according to the wash
load, the type of fabric and the degree of humidity.
The impedance is between about 1MΩ and 25MΩ. This
value is converted into an oscillation of between about
260Hz and 0Hz; when processed by the electronic circuit
(fuzzy logic), this value determines the duration of the cycle
and the final humidity.

NTC sensor
The NTC sensor is fitted to the hot air fan duct. This sensor consists of a resistor contained in a metallic
capsule. Its resistance decreases as the temperature increases.
The electronic circuit reads the resistance (which varies with the temperature inside the dryer); when this
resistance falls below a certain value, the heater unit is switched off. As the air cools, the resistance
increases; when it reaches a given value, the electronic circuit re-connects the heater unit to the power
supply. This occurs each time the temperature inside the dryer exceeds a given value, which varies
according to the drying cycle that has been selected.

The motor group consists of a belt tensioner (2), two fan blades (1 and 4) for circulating cold and warm air
respectively, fitted to the motor shaft using bolts, and a single-phase asynchronous motor (3) featuring an
overheating safety cut-out.
Important: when assembling the fan blades to the motor, do not reverse their positions, as this would
cause incorrect air circulation inside the dryer.
The efficiency of the motor can be checked by
measuring the resistance across the windings:
Winding A
ohm 29 ~ (contacts 1-3)
Winding B
ohm 29 ~ (contacts 2-3)
The motor is powered by the electronic board via a relay (which determines the direction of rotation) and a
triac.

Canister filling pipe (models with canister in upper section)
The pump is actioned by a synchronous motor with a power of about 17W.
The function of the motor is to pump the condensation water from the sump
to the canister. The pump, too, is powered by a triac.
The resistance of the stator winding is approximately 750 Ω.

Door interlock
The door interlock is an electromechanical device which powers the electrical loads only when the door is
correctly closed and the programme selector knob is turned (ON/OFF - closed).
The interlock features a child safety device so that, in case of necessity, the door can be opened by pressing
from inside the appliance.
Opened door:
the lever holds down the button
of deviator “A”; in this position
contacts 1-2 are closed. In some
models they power the drum
light when the main switch is off.
Closing the door:
the latch (1) rotates cam (2): this
movement releases lever (3)
and the button on the deviator
“A” changes position, thus
closing contacts 1-3 and
powering all components of the
appliance (cutting power out to
the drum light)
Position of connectors
Pushing the door opening
button:
the main electronic board
powers the coil; the core (1),
moves the anchor (2), releasing

The alarms remain active during component diagnostics testing. If an alarm should be displayed, turn
the programme selector to the first position to exit the alarm situation, and then continue the testing cycle
(if the alarm is not repeated).
¾
In order to check for correct operation of the floating switch and the pump, the sump is filled with
approximately 0.7 litres of water.
¾
For correct control of the conductimetric sensor in a condition of short-circuit (position 7), remove the
cover and create a short-circuit between the two half-shells of the drum or between the front shell and
ground. After entering this phase, the time available for creation of the short circuit is just one second;
therefore, prepare the short circuit before turning the programme selector knob to position eight
(it is advisable to do this in a position in which the drum is stationary, then pass quickly to this position).
If the short circuit is not performed correctly, the electronic board will display alarm E32 (sensor
frequency too low). To exit the alarm condition, turn the programme selector knob to the first position.
¾
Open the condenser access panel and check that the switch operates correctly. The buzzer will emit
four "beeps" (in different tonalities), repeated every 7 seconds.

ALARMS
10.1
Displaying the alarms to the user
Operation of the alarms is configurable according to the model. Some or all of the alarms may be
displayed to the user.
Normally, all alarms except E61, E97, EB2 are displayed to the user.
When an alarm condition occurs, the drying cycle may be interrupted or paused; in some cases, for the sake
of safety, a forced cooling cycle is performed. In this case, the electronic board, if possible, disconnects the
power relay from the heater unit and powers the motor of the drum cooling fan. The cycle remains active
until the user switches off the appliance.
10.1.1 Alarm display during normal operation
On models with styling TC2 – TC3 the system displays the
family of the current alarm to the user.
If for example we consider E53 alarm (problems with the
motor TRIAC) the display will show as follows:
•
•
First digit: letter “E” (error)
Second-third digit: the no. “5 0“, i.e. the family of alarm
E53)
The same number is displayed by a repeated flashing sequence of START LED of RED colour with a cycle
(0,4 seconds on, 0,4 seconds off with a 2,5 second pause between the sequences); in case of E53, the
series of five flashes indicates the first of the two E53 alarm digits (the alarms relative to the same function
are grouped in families).
The buzzer emits some “beeps” synchronized with the flashing of the LEDs.
10.2
Reading the alarm codes
To read the last alarm code memorized in the EEPROM of the electronic board:
Ö Access diagnostics mode (see paragraph).
Ö Turn the programme selector knob clockwise to the tenth position on models TC2 TC3 TC4 and to
the eighth position on models TC6, paying attention not to stop in other positions, because error 32
could occur).
10.2.1 Displaying the alarm code on models TC2 – TC3
•
•
•
First digit: letter “E”
Second digit: the family of the alarm
Third digit: the alarm number
10.2.2 Displaying the alarm code on models TC4 – TC6
The alarm code is displayed by a repeated sequence of flashing of the LED START (0.4 seconds on, 0.4
seconds off, with a pause of 2.5 seconds between sequences).
The buzzer emits a series of "beeps" in synchronization with the flashing of the LED.
START LED with RED light: indicates the first digit of the alarm code (family)
START LED with GREEN light: indicates the second digit of the alarm code (number inside the family).
Displaying other alarm codes
Pressing START button, all alarms in the appliance will be displayed.
The configuration errors E93 are displayed through the flashing of all LEDs and it is not possible to
access the diagnostics system.

10.3 Cancelling the last alarm memorized
It is good practise to cancel the alarm code from memory:
• After reading the alarm, to check whether it is repeated during the diagnostics cycle.
ƒ After effecting repairs to the appliance, to check whether it is repeated during testing.
1. Turn the programme selector knob to the clockwise to the tenth position on models TC2 TC3 TC4
and to the eighth position on models TC6.
2. Hold down buttons 6 and 5 (about 5 seconds).
3. Once the alarm has been cancelled, E00 is displayed.
10.4 Notes concerning certain alarm codes
ƒ
Configuration alarm E93: When configuration alarms are displayed (when the
appliance is switched on), the appliance is inoperative and all the LEDs light. It is not
possible to access diagnostics mode; the only possible operation is that of switching
off the appliance (selector knob on position "0").
ƒ
Alarms EB1-EB2-EB3: In the event of problems with the power supply, the appliance
remains in alarm mode until the voltage and frequency are restored to within the normal
limits or the appliance is switched off (selector knob on position "0"). Alarm family "B" is
displayed and it is not possible to access diagnostics mode nor to use the "rapid alarm
display" function. The complete alarm can be read only when the abnormal condition has
terminated.
