YOUR NEW TUMBLE DRYER
With your new tumble dryer you will have soft dry
laundry with any weather conditions.
It is fitted with a condensing device that
condenses the moist air drawn from the laundry
which is then collected in a water container. The
water container can be discharged directly by
means of a suitable drain hose.
The appliance has been developed meeting all
top quality requirements in order to guarantee its
long life.
Low energy consumption and short drying time
make the operation of your tumble dryer
extremely economical.
Ecological hints
In order to obtain energy savings, it is advisable
to follow these instructions:
■ Whenever possible, dry the maximum load for
the selected programme, as described in the
programme tables. Small loads are
uneconomical.
■ The laundry should be well spun before being
loaded into the dryer. The higher the spin
speed, the shorter the drying time and
therefore the lower the energy consumption.
■ Avoid overdrying the laundry by selecting the
suitable time according to the degree of
dryness required. Overdried laundry is not
easily ironed.
■ To take advantage of the maximum load
capacity, laundry that has to be store dried
can be dried with laundry that has to be iron
■
■
dried. Select the iron dry programme; when
this is over, remove the laundry to be ironed
and dry the remaining items.
If the filter and the condenser are regularly
cleaned, short drying time and low energy
consumption are guaranteed.
The room should be well ventilated. The
room temperature must not exceed +35°C
during drying.

Always unplug the appliance after use.
Clothes which are dripping wet should not be
placed in the dryer.
Always load well spun laundry. The higher the
spin speed, the lower the electricity
consumption and the shorter the drying times.
Never tumble dry items that have been in
contact with chemicals such as dry cleaning
fluid. These are of a volatile nature and could
cause an explosion.
As some bulky items such as duvets and
eiderdowns should be dried in large
commercial machines because of their bulk,
check with the manufacturer of the item if it is
suitable for drying in a domestic machine,
even if the dry weight of the item is within the
limit advised.
Always check that no cigarette lighters have
been left in pockets.
Leave the door slightly ajar when not in use to
preserve the door seal.
The fluff filter must be cleaned after every
use.
Do not operate the appliance with a damaged
filter or without filter as this may cause a fire.
Do not overload the appliance.
Do not allow fluff to accumulate around the
dryer.
Do not dry canvas shoes or sports shoes, as
they could get stuck between the door and
the drum, thus blocking the latter.
Under no circumstances should you attempt
to repair the machine yourself. Repairs
carried out by inexperienced persons may
cause injury or serious malfunctioning. Refer
to your local Zanussi Service Centre. Always
insist on genuine Zanussi spare parts.

6 Drying Time Selector Dial
The selector dial incorporates two drying cycles,
one of up to 150 minutes at a high temperature
for cotton and linen, and one of up to 100
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.

anticlockwise direction.
The drying time depends on:
- the speed of the last spin
- the desired degree of drying
- the type of laundry
- the size of the load.
Cooling phase
When selecting the drying time, it should be
remembered that it includes a 10 minute cooling
phase. The heating is automatically cut off and
the laundry is cooled.
The position
on the dial can be selected to
refresh jumpers, clothes, etc.

The laundry must be suitably spun in your washing machine before being placed in the tumble dryer
(800 rpm minimum). If the washing machine spins at a lower speed than 800 rpm, it is advisable to
buy a spin-dryer.
Drying times are given as a guide only and vary according to the size of the load, the type of laundry,
the degree of spinning prior to drying.
Start by selecting a short drying time. If necessary, perform an additional drying cycle afterwards.
Experience will soon enable you to estimate the drying time needed for your usual laundry loads. It is
advisable to take note of them.
Size of load
It is not necessary to weigh the laundry, if these instructions are followed:
Cottons, linen: full drum, but not overloaded.
Synthetics: half drum.
■ Particularly delicate fabrics: do not fill the drum more than 1/3.
For a mixed load (cotton and synthetics, for example) select the drying time suitable for the most
delicate fabrics and then increase it by approx 10 mins.

Never tumble dry the following:
Particularly delicate items such as net curtains,
woollen, silk, fabrics with metal trim, nylon
tights, bulky materials such as anoraks,
blankets, eiderdowns, sleeping bags, feather
quilts and any items containing rubber foam or
materials similar to rubber foam.
Always follow the instructions on garment
labels.

■
■
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.).

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).

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.
Operation
1. Connect the appliance.
2. Load the laundry.
3. Close the door.
4. Select the desired drying time (in high or low
temperature section, depending on the
laundry).
5. In case, press button
.
40
P0555
6. Press button
: the programme starts.
If the position
on the dial is reached, the
heating is automatically cut off and the laundry is
cooled.
After around 10 minutes, the programme is over.
Important: It is not advisable to open the door
during operation to check the degree of dryness.
As the laundry is warm, when touched it gives
the impression of still being damp, even if it is
dry. Open the door after the programme has
finished.
If the programme has to be interrupted, it is
advisable to perform the cooling phase to
prevent the heat from building up inside the
machine.
After drying

Switch off the appliance.
Clean the filter and empty water container
(see pages 11 and 12).

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.
Important: do not use methylated spirit, diluents
or similar products.
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.
Pull the filter upwards to extract it and remove
the fluff. Then refit the filter.
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.
Remove the fluff around the filter and around
the seat of the condenser in the inner door
using a damp cloth.
P1026
Cleaning condenser
Remove fluff from the condenser regularly
according to how frequently the machine is used
and to the type of laundry being dried. However it
should always be cleaned when deposits of fluff
can be seen.
Extract the condenser using the top handle;
remove fluff with a hand-held shower head or a
soft brush.
P0636
P0639
Attention: never use the tumble dryer without
the condenser.
11
Emptying water container
Water extracted from the laundry being dried is
collected in a special container.
This container must be emptied after every
cycle.
Important: should the container be filled during a
drying programme, the corresponding light will
light up on the panel to indicate that the container
has to be emptied. The time selector dial rotates
to position “O”, but the drying cycle is not
completed. In this case, after emptying out the
container, the remaining drying time has to be
selected again.
Insert container correctly.
Attention: After this procedure, before the dryer
resumes the operation, for a few seconds it could
remain still and the “water container full” light
could remain on.
Note:
The water collected in the container can be used
in a steam iron provided it is filtered (for example
with a strainer or a coffee filter).
