Lime in the water or cleaning agents may form a barely visible lining on the
inside of the drum. The degree to which the laundry has been dried is then
no longer detected reliably. The laundry is damper than expected when removed from the dryer.
Use a standard domestic cleaner (e.g. vinegar-based cleaner) to wipe down
the inside of the drum and drum ribs.
Clean operating screen and housing
Do not use furniture cleaners or aggressive cleaning agents to clean the
machine.
Use a damp cloth to wipe down the operating screen and housing.

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.
Should the appliance be moved, it must be transported vertically.

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 6 kg of laundry, dried using the COTTONS CUPBOARD
DRY Baumwolle Schranktrocken programme.
