APPLIANCE POSITIONING
• The temperature of the hot
air which occurs in the tumble
dryer can increase to 60 °C.
The appliance must not be installed on the floor which is
not resistant to high temperatures.
• When the tumble dryer operates, the room temperature
must not be lower than +5 °C
and higher than +35 °C. This
can cause unwanted effect on
the performance of the appliance.
• If it is necessary to move the
appliance, it must be moved
vertically.
• The appliance must not be installed behind a lockable
door, a sliding door, a door

a clean position, where dirt does not
collect.
• Air must flow freely around the appliance. Make sure that the front airflow
slots in the bottom of the appliance
are not blocked .
• To keep vibration and noise at the
minimum, when the tumble dryer operates, it must be put on a stable and
flat surface.
• When the appliance is put in its permanent position, check if is fully level
with the aid of a spirit level. If it is
not, adjust the feet until it is.
• Do not remove the feet. Do not decrease the floor clearance through
thick carpets, bar of wood or equivalent. This can increase the heat which
can cause interference with the operation of the appliance.
It is possible to adjust the height of the
tumble dryer. To do that adjust the feet
(see picture).
