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
CAUTION!
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.

Installation
All the cycles have to be checked in accordance with EN 61121 (Tumble dryers for household
use – Methods for measuring the performance).
Installation
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.

Environment
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 3 mm
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.

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.
