If the tumble dryer is put on top of a
washing machine, use the stacking kit.
The stacking kit, available from your authorized vendor, can be used only with
the appliance specified in the instructions, supplied with the accessory.
Read it carefully before installation (Refer to the Installation leaflet).
Ensure you have good ventilation in the
installation room to avoid the back flow
of gases into the room from appliances
burning other fuels, including open fires.
The appliance can be installed as freestanding or below the kitchen counter
with correct space (Refer to the Installation leaflet).
When the appliance is put in its permanent position, check if it is fully level

1.3 Use
WARNING!
Risk of fire, explosion, electric
shock or damage to the appliance
• Use this appliance in a household only.
• Do not change the specification of this
appliance.
• The final part of the drying cycle occurs
without heat (cool down cycle) to ensure that the items will not be damaged.
If you stop the appliance before the end
of the drying cycle, immediately remove
and spread out all items, so that the
heat can dissipate.
• If you use fabric softener or similar
products, obey the instructions on the
packaging.
• Do not run the appliance without a filter.
Clean the lint filter before or after each
use.
• Wipe away lint that has accumulated
around the appliance.
• Do not dry the damaged items which
contain padding or fillings.
• Do not dry items such as foam rubber
(latex foam), shower caps, waterproof
textiles, rubber backed articles and
clothes or pillows fitted with foam rubber pads..
• Before drying items that have been in
contact with substances such as cooking oil, acetone, alcohol , petrol, kerosene, spot removers, turpentine, waxes
and wax removers, wash them in hot
•

water with an extra amount of detergent.
Do not dry items in the appliance if industrial chemicals have been used for
cleaning.
Make sure that no gas lighters or
matches have been left in the pockets
of the clothing.
Only dry fabrics which are applicable to
dry in the tumble dryer. Follow the instructions on the fabric label.
Do not dry not washed items in the appliance.
If you have washed your laundry with a
stain remover start an extra rinse cycle
before you start the dryer.
Do not drink or prepare food with the
condensed water. It can cause health
problems to people and pets.
Do not sit or stand on the open door.
Obey the maximum load volume of 8 kg
(refer to the “Programme chart” chapter).
Do not dry dripping wet clothes in the
tumble dryer.
Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to heat
sources such as in a tumble dryer. The
items become warm, causing an oxidation reaction in the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat cannot escape,
the items can become hot enough to
catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oilaffected items can prevent heat from
escaping and create a fire hazard.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or have
been contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer they
should first be washed in hot water with
extra detergent -this will reduce, but not
eliminate, the hazard.
1.4 Care and Cleaning

Risk of injury or damage to the
appliance.
• Before maintenance, deactivate the appliance and disconnect the mains plug
from the mains socket.
• Do not use water spray and steam to
clean the appliance.
ENGLISH
• Clean the appliance with a moist soft
cloth. Only use neutral detergents. Do
not use abrasive products, abrasive
cleaning pads, solvents or metal objects.

Compressor
WARNING!
Risk of damage of the appliance.

tight. The damage of the system can
cause a leakage.
• Disconnect the appliance from the
mains supply.
