INSTALLATION
Positioning
It is recommended that, for your convenience, the
machine is positioned close to your washing
machine.
Whilst drying, the tumble dryer will expel a certain
amount of warm, very moist air, and this should
be removed from the room as quickly as possible
to prevent condensation. In an extremely well
ventilated room or close to an open window, this
may occur naturally.
However, in general, it is better to carry the
dryer's exhaust outside via a 100 mm diameter
flexible hose (available through your dealer);
ending either temporarily at an open window, or
permanently at a fixed ventilation grille, fitted to
an exterior wall or window.
The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean
place, where dirt does not build up.
Make sure there are no obstructing items or
material near the air-intake louvres provided at
the back (e.g. paper, rags etc.).
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 two
adjustable feet at the front of the machine until it
is.
The feet must never be removed.
Do not restrict the floor clearance through
deep-pile carpets, strips of wood or similar.
This might cause heat build-up which would
interfere with the operation of the appliance.
P0046
Important
When operating the tumble dryer, the room
temperature must not exceed 35°C, as it may
affect the performance of the appliance.
Fitting the vent hose
To simplify the installation, there is a choice of
vent outlets: one at the back, the others in the left
and right-hand side.
Connect the hose to whichever is the more
convenient by pulling the ring nut (A) from the
vent outlet at the back, screwing it on to the hose
and pushing it firmly back into place.
The unused vents should now be sealed with the
special snap covers provided.
A
P1028

P1027

Advice: If the hose is long and the room
temperature low, the moisture might condense to
water inside the hose. This is an unavoidable
natural phenomenon. To prevent this water from
Iying in the hose or flowing back into the tumble
dryer, it is advisable to drill a small hole (dia.
3 mm) in the lowest point of the hose and to
place a small container below it.(See picture,
point A).
A
P0279
Once connected to the dryer, run the vent hose to
the desired outlet point, ensuring that the run’s
overall length is less than 2 m, and that it
contains no more than two bends. As to the outlet
itself, if you have decided on a fixed wall/window
grille, a good local builder’s merchant should be
able to supply you with the necessary fittings and
installation advice.
It is important not to connect the
vent hose to, for example, a cooker
hood, or a chimney or flue pipe
designed to carry the exhaust from
a fuel burning appliance.
P0055
Note that to avoid condensation problems, it is
essential that the dryer be fitted with the flexible
hose to carry its “exhaust” at least beyond the
kitchen units; preferable outside the kitchen.
In order to prevent the appliance from
overheating, it is important that the steam
exhaust is unobstructed.
Therefore, in case of a permanent hose fitted to
an exterior wall or ceiling, it must be ensured an
exhaust capacity of at least 150 m3/h.
If the dryer is fitted next to kitchen units,
make sure that the vent hose is not squashed.
If the hose is partially squashed, drying
efficiency will be reduced, resulting in longer
drying times and higher energy consumption.
If the hose is completely squashed, the safety
cut-outs with which the machine is fitted may
operate.

ENGLISH
Door reversal
To make it easier to load or unload the laundry
the door can be reversed.
This operation must be carried out by
qualified personnel.
Operate as follows:
- Remove the door by unscrewing the two screws
(1) fastening the hinge to the cabinet (Fig. A).
- Remove the safety catch (2) and the plug (3) by
bending the two fastening tags (Fig. A).
- Refit the safety catch (2) and plug (3) on the
door by reversing their positions (Fig. B).

This will help you to select the correct time for
drying.
This lights up when the machine starts operating
and goes out at the end of the programme.
2 Low Temperature Button
5 Drying Time Selector Dial
Press this button to reduce the temperature when
drying particularly delicate cotton or linen items.
In this case you should select a longer drying
time.
On the programmes for synthetics the
temperature is automatically reduced.
Therefore it is not necessary to depress this
button.
The selector dial incorporates two drying cycles,
one of up to 120 minutes at a high temperature
for cotton and linen, and one of up to 80 minutes
at a low temperature for synthetic fabrics.
To set the machine to the selected time, turn the
dial clockwise until the time you want coincides
exactly with the pointer.
NEVER attempt to turn the dial in an
anticlockwise direction.
When selecting the drying time, you should
remember that it includes a 8 minute cooling
phase (position
on the dial).
This phase should not be shortened, stopped or
avoided, as this could cause skin burns or
damages to the laundry.
3 Cool Tumbling Button
By depressing this button the heat is cut off. This
is particularly useful to freshen the laundry (e.g.
to remove a persistent odour of moth-balls).
Additional drying
If at the end of the programme the laundry is still
too damp, set the dial for a further period of
drying (remembering to take into account the
cooling period).

Never overfill the drum (do not load large quilts, for example).
The laundry must be suitably spin dried in your washing machine before being placed in the tumble
dryer (500rpm minimum).
Drying times vary according to:
- The type of laundry
- The size of the load
- The degree of spinning prior to drying
Drying times are given as a guide only. Experience will soon enable you to estimate the drying time
needed for your usual laundry loads.
Do not start by selecting a long drying time. It is better to determine the required degree of dryness by
gradually increasing the drying time.
For a mixed load (cotton and resistant synthetics, for example) select the time for the most delicate
fibres and increase it by 10 mins.

ENGLISH
i Drying sequence
Before starting up for the first time it is advisable
lo load a few moist cloths into the dryer and to let
it run for about 20 minutes. This ensures that no
dust and dirt is left in the drum.
1. Load the laundry
Open the door by pulling the catch forwards.
Load the items one at a time, shaking them out
loosely and close the door.
Please check the laundry does not get caught
between the door and filter.
P0305
2. Select the required option
Depress Cool Tumbling or Low Temp. Buttton, if
desired.
60
3. Select the drying time
Turn the selector dial clockwise to the desired
time, in the high or low temperature section,
depending on the laundry: the mains-on light
illuminates and the machine starts operating.
P0550
4. When drying is completed
The machine stops automatically, the mains-on
light goes out.
If the laundry is still too damp, select a further
brief drying time, bearing in mind that during the
last 8 minutes the dryer carries out the cooling
and anti-crease treatment phase.
Clean the filter after every drying programme.
A clean filter ensures correct functioning of
the appliance.

Close pillowcases and covers with fasteners to
prevent small laundry items getting tangled
inside them. Close press studs, zips and hooks
and tie belts and apron strings.
Sort laundry according to type and degree of
drying required.
Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids creasing
and saves energy.
Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured
fluffy items such as towels as they could attract
the fluff.
The laundry must be thoroughly spun before
tumble drying.
Easy-care items, too, e.g. shirts, should be
briefly pre-spun before drying (depending on
crease resistance approx. 30 seconds or using
the special brief spin programme of your
washing machine).
■
■
■
■
■
Knitted textiles (knitted underwear) may shrink
a little during drying. Please do not overdry
items of this type. It is advisable to allow for
shrinkage when choosing the size of new
purchases.
You can also put starched items into your
dryer. However, to achieve the desired
starched effect, choose the programme “iron
dry”. To remove any starch residues, wipe out
the internal drum after drying with a moist cloth
and then rub it dry.
To avoid a static charge when drying is
completed, use either a fabric softener when
you are washing the laundry or a fabric
conditioner specifically for tumble dryers.
Remove the laundry when the dryer has
finished drying.
If individual items are still damp after drying,
set a brief post-drying time, but at least 20
minutes. This will be necessary particularly for
multilayered items (e.g. collars, pockets, etc.).
ENGLISH
MAINTENANCE
You must disconnect the appliance from the
electricity supply, before you can carry out any
cleaning or maintenance work.
External cleaning
Use only soap and water and then dry
thoroughly.
From time to time, apply a little wax furniture
cream with a soft cloth.
Important: do not use methylated spirit, diluents
or similar products.
Cleaning the door
Clean periodically the interior part of the door to
remove any fluff.
Accurate cleaning ensures correct drying.
P0328
Cleaning the filter
Your dryer will only function well if the filter is
clean.
The filter collects all the «fluff» which
accumulates during drying and it must therefore
be cleaned at the end of each programme with a
damp cloth.
The filter cannot be removed.
Do not be alarmed by the amount of fluff. It is not
due to excessive wear caused by the dryer. All
fabric loses fluff when drying but it goes unnoticed in the air. In a tumble dryer it simply
collects in the filter.
