Environmental tips
• In the dryer, laundry becomes fluffy and soft. Fabric softeners are not therefore needed
when washing.
• Filtered condensed water can be used for ProSteam programmes.
• 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 micro filter and fine filter after every drying or ProSteam programme;
– spin the laundry well before drying.
Energy consumption depends on spinning speed set in washing machine. Higher spinning
speed - lower energy consumption.
Packaging material
The packaging materials are environmentally friendly and can be recycled. The plastic components are identified by markings, e.g. >PE<, >PS<, etc. Please dispose of the packaging
materials in the appropriate container at the community waste disposal facilities.
WARNING!
When disposing of old appliances, remove the mains cable and dispose of together with
the plug. Remove the door hook and ensure it is no longer lockable to prevent young
children being trapped inside.

Sorting and preparing laundry
Sorting laundry
• Sort by fabric type:
– Cotton/linen for programmes in COTTONS pogramme group.
– Mixtures and synthetics for programmes in SYNTHETICS programme group.
• Sorting by care label. The care labels mean:
Drying in the tumble
dryer possible in principle
Dry at normal temperature
Dry at reduced temperature (chooseDELICATE option!)
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 DRY 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 respect to material, colour and
weight. Please dry heavy laundry items made of wool separately.
• The following textiles cannot be treated using a ProSteam programme:
leather, textiles with large metal, wooden or plastic parts, textiles with rusting metal
parts, oilskins or wax cotton garments.
• To smooth or freshen laundry with a ProSteam programme, sort laundry by size, weight,
material and colour.
Only smooth textiles together that are similar in terms of size, weight, material and
colour.
• Do not dry new, coloured textiles together with light-coloured laundry items. Colours
may fade (check colour fastness of fabric when damp in an inconspicuous area).
• Do not use dry cleaning sets in combination with ProSteam programmes.
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.
Special notes about ProSteam
• Before treating garments with a ProSteam programme, remove stains by washing or
using localized stain removal

Water recirculation system
This system allows you to use for a ProSteam cycle the condensed water automatically
collected in the condense water tank during a drying cycle.
The water in the condense water tank will never automatically fill the steam water tank.
The water recirculation system works only if it is supplied by water arising during standard
drying cycles.
To activate this system turn the valve to the ON position. When the valve is ON the steam
water tank will be filled during the next drying cycle. Water will be supplied by the water
circuit directly to the steam water tank filling it automatically.
To activate recirculation set valve to the ON position. To do that:
1. Pull drawer containing condensed water

All information on applications is for guidance only. Smoothing results may vary
depending on the selected programme and especially the fittings and material
properties of the textile. The results can be improved if necessary by using different
programmes and steam volumes. For example, some textiles containing more than
20% synthetic but with the right fittings may behave more like cotton textiles in a
ProSteam programme. You may therefore get better smoothing results by selecting
a cotton ProSteam programme.
Given the wide range of different textile grades and properties that can be manufactured today using different mechanical and chemical processes, we recommend
running the first few ProSteam programmes at low steam levels and with a small
number of garments that are as similar as possible. Later, you can carefully start
to vary the conditions of ProSteam programmes to learn from experience how to
get the best results from the volume of laundry loaded, the quality of the textiles
and the most suitable steam levels and ProSteam programmes. Please also note the
accompanying "Textile Guide".

1) exact programme times appear in the display once the machine has performed wet/dry recognition (approx. 2
min.)
All information provided on selecting the steam level and corresponding load are
suggestions only. In some cases, using a higher steam level or smaller load may give
better results. The refresh programmes are gentle ProSteam programmes for nonwashable textiles. Any distortion to the shape of a garment which might occur in
few cases, can be remedied by ironing.
ProSteam system

Selecting the programme
Use the programme selector to set the programme
you require. The estimated programme duration
(in hours and minutes) appears in the multi-display as well as cycle finish time.
Select STEAM LEVEL
To achieve the best results, different steam levels are required for different volumes
of laundry.
The STEAM LEVEL button is used to set the required steam quantity of: MIN, MED
or MAX.
All ProSteam programmes, apart from the REFRESH programmes, automatically recognize
the remaining dampness in clothes. When laundry is wet, a drying cycle is activated first if
required. The table shows the steam levels appropriate for the selected load, under STEAM
LEVEL.
Press the STEAM LEVEL button repeatedly until the desired steam level (MIN, MED or MAX)
is shown in the display.
If the STEAM LEVEL button is not pressed after a ProSteam programme is selected, the
medium steam level (MED) is selected automatically. If you select a REFRESH programme,
MIN is selected automatically.
If in doubt, always select a lower steam level first until you have more experience
with load volumes, fabric types and the corresponding optimum steam level. If too
high steam level is selected, garments may lose their shape. If too low steam level
is selected, creases may remain.
Selecting additional options
The additional options available for the ProSteam programmes are LONG ANTICREASE,
BUZZER, SPIN SPEED1) and the CHILD LOCK.

LONG ANTICREASE
A 90 minute anti-crease phase is set. The display now shows the long anti-crease icon.
If this additional option is selected, the anti-crease phase (30 min.) at the end of the ProSteam cycle is lengthened by 60 minutes. The laundry can be removed at any time during
the anti-crease phase.
BUZZER
The appliance is supplied with the BUZZER function deactivated. The button is used to
switch the function on or off. When the function is active, the BUZZER symbol appears in
the display.
The buzzer sounds or plays a tune during:
– cycle end
– anti-crease phase and when phase starts or ends
– cycle interruption by a warning

CHILD LOCK
The child lock can be set to prevent a programme being accidentally started or a programme
in operation being accidentally changed. The child safety device locks all buttons and the
programme knob. The child safety device can by deactivated by holding down the OPTION
and OK buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds.
– Before programme is started: appliance cannot be used
– After programme is started: programme in operation cannot be changed
The child lock icon appears in the display to indicate that the child lock is activated. The
child lock is not deactivated once the programme comes to an end. If you want to set a
new programme, you must first deactivate the child lock.
SPIN SPEED
If the washing in the washing machine was initially drained prior to the ProSteam cycle,
the dryer can be set according to the spin speed of the initial drainage procedure. The higher
the spin speed was, the shorter the programme length for the drying cycle.
Activate the SPIN SPEED option and then number of times press OPTION button until the
desired spin speed of the initial drainage is displayed. No value is shown if no spin speed is
selected.
In certain programmes the spin speed has not effect (time controlled cycles), its selection
can be not selectable and only three dashes are visualized. Available selections: from 800
to 1800 rpm's in 100 rpm's intervals.
The maximum value depends by selected program, the minimum is always 800 rpm
For those programs where the spin speed has no effect (time controlled cycles), the selection
is not allowed and three dashes “- - -” are displayed that has the meaning of not set or
unknown.
The user interface always remembers last spin selection, and proposes it as default for all
new selected programs. If memorized spin speed is greater than maximum allowed value
it will be automatically reduced to max spin speed available for the selected program.

Installation
• Energy consumption (corrected with final humidity) during the cupboard dry cotton
cycle with half load.
• Final humidity (during cupboard dry cotton, iron dry cotton and cupboard dry easy care)
• Condensation efficiency (corrected with final humidity) during cupboard dry cotton cycle
with nominal and half load (with valve/filter of the water recirculation system in OFF
position).
All the cycles have to be checked in accordance with EN 61121 (Tumble dryers for household
use – Methods for measuring the performance).
Installation
The appliance must be moved in vertical position for transport.
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.
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 or a door with
a hinge on the opposite side to that of the appliance.
