Sorting and preparing laundry
Sorting laundry
• Sort by fabric type:
– Cotton/linen for programmes in COTTONS programme group.
– Mixtures and synthetics for programmes in EASY CARE programme group.
• Sorting by care label. The care labels mean:
Drying in the tumble
dryer possible in principle
Drying at normal
temperature
Drying at reduced
temperature
Drying in the tumble
dryer not possible
Do not place in the appliance any wet laundry which is not specified on the care
label as being suitable for tumble-drying.
This appliance can be used for all wet laundry items which are labelled as suitable
for tumble-drying.
• Do not dry new, coloured textiles together with light-coloured laundry items.
Textile colours may bleed.
• Do not dry cotton jersey and knitwear with the EXTRA programme. Items may
shrink!
• Wool and wool-like textiles can be dried using the WOOL programme. Before
the drying cycle spin the woollen textiles as well as possible (max. 1200 rpm).
Only dry woollen textiles together which are similar or the same with repect to
material, colour and weight. Please dry heavy laundry items made of wool
separately.
Preparing laundry
• To avoid laundry becoming tangled: close zips, button up duvet covers and tie
loose ties or ribbons (e.g. of aprons).
• Empty pockets. Remove metal items (paper clips, safety pins, etc).
• Turn items with double-layered fabrics inside out (e.g. with cotton-lined anoraks,
the cotton layer should be outermost). These fabrics will then dry better.

3. Slide outlet connections in and refit
condensate tank.
If the programme has been interrupted as a result of the condensate tank
being full: Press the START PAUSE
button to continue the drying cycle.
The condensate tank has a volume of approx. 4 litres. This is sufficient for around
7kg of laundry which has previously been spun at 1000 revolutions/ minute.
The condensate can be used as distilled water, e.g. for steam ironing. However first
filter the condensate (e.g. with a coffee filter) to remove any residue and small
pieces of fluff.
Cleaning heat exchanger filter
If the indicator CLEAN BASE FILTER
lights up, the heat exchanger filter in the
base of the appliance must be cleaned.
To protect the heat pump from dirt, the dryer is fitted with fluff filter, which is
located in the filter housing. Here too large amounts of fluff build up over time,
which affect the function of the appliance.
IMPORTANT
• Operating when the fluff filter is clogged with fluff can damage the dryer. This
also increases energy consumption.
• Never operate the dryer without the fluff filters.
• Do not use the dryer without the fluff filter. A dirty heat pump requires more
energy and can only be cleaned up by means of a costly process.

Installation
Installation
Transporting the appliance
Only tip the appliance on its left side to transport (see illustration), if it cannot be transported in an upright position.
Appliance positioning
• It is recommended that, for your convenience, the machine is positioned close
to your washing machine.
• The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean place, where dirt does not build
up.
• Air must be able to circulate freely all round the appliance. Do not obstruct the
front ventilation grille or the air intake grilles at the back of the machine.
• To keep vibration and noise to a minimum when the dryer is in use, it should be
placed on a firm, level surface.
• Once in its permanent operating position, check that the dryer is absolutely level
with the aid of a spirit level. If it is not, raise or lower the feet until it is.
• The feet must never be removed. Do not restrict the floor clearance through
deeppile carpets, strips of wood or similar. This might cause heat built-up which
would interfere with the operation of the appliance.
Installation
35
The hot air emitted by the tumble dryer can reach temperatures of up to 60°C. The
appliance must therefore not be installed on floors which are not resistant to high
temperatures.
When operating the tumble dryer, the room temperature must not be lower than
+5°C and higher than +35°C, as it may affect the performance of the appliance.
WARNING!
Should the appliance be moved, it must be transported vertically.
WARNING!
The appliance must not be installed behind the lockable door, a sliding door a door
with a hinge on the opposite side to that of the appliance.
Removing transport safety packaging
CAUTION!
Before use all parts of the transport packaging must be removed.
1. Open loading door
2. Pull off adhesive strips from inside machine on top of drum.
3. Remove foil hose and polystyrene
padding from the machine.
WARNING!
If the appliance was not transported in
an upright position, leave it to stand for
12 hours before connecting it to the
electricity supply and using it for the first
time, so that the oil can flow back to the
compressor. Otherwise the compressor could be damaged.
36
Installation
Electrical connection
Details on mains voltage, type of current and the fuses required should be taken
from the type plate. The type plate is fitted near the loading aperture (see “Product
description” chapter).
Connect the machine to an earthed socket, in accordance with current wiring
regulations.
WARNING!
The manufacturer declines any responsibility for damage or injury through
failure to comply with the above safety precautions.
Should the appliance power supply cable need to be replaced, this must be
carried out by our Service Center.
The appliance is supplied with a 13 amp plug fitted. In the event of having to change
the fuse in the plug supplied, a 13 amp ASTA approved BS 1363/A fuse must be
used.
The wire coloured green and yellow must be
4
connected to the terminal marked with the
or colletter «E» or by the earth symbol
oured green and yellow.
The wire coloured blue must be connected to
the terminal «N» or coloured black.
The wire coloured brown must be connected
3
to the terminal marked «L» or coloured red.
1
Upon completion there must be no cut, or
2
stray strands of wire present and the cord
clamp must be secure over the outer sheath.
WARNING!
A cut off plug inserted into a 13 amp socket is a serious safety (shock)
hazard.
Ensure that the cut off plug is disposed of safely.
WARNING!
The power supply cable must be accessible after installing the machine.
Installation
37
Permanent connection
In the case of permanent connection it is necessary that you install a double pole
switch between the appliance and the electricity supply (mains), with a minimum
gap of 3mm between the switch contacts and of a type suitable for the required
load in compliance with the current electrical regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green earth cable at any point.
Changing door stop
WARNING!
The door stop may only be changed by a specialist. If necessary, please contact our
after-sales service or your specialist dealer.

Environmental tips
• In the dryer, laundry becomes fluffy and soft. Fabric softeners are not therefore
needed when washing.
• Your dryer will function most economically if you:
– always keep the ventilation slots on the base of the dryer unobstructed;
– use the loading volumes specified in the programme overview;
– ensure you have good ventilation in the installation room;
– clean the micro-fine filter and fine strainer after each drying cycle;
– spin the laundry well before drying. Example: Consumption data – depending
on spinning speed – for 7 kg of laundry, dried using the COTTONS STORAGE
DRY programme.
