The proper location
For drying the appliance requires a sufficient supply of clean,
cool room air.
Do not operate the appliance together with furnaces
(gas-, oil-, coal-fired) or fireplaces. The airflow may
aspirate their exhaust fumes, withdraw oxygen and
extinguish flames Poisoning hazard!
Operate the appliance only in well ventilated, low dust
rooms. Do not block or cover the appliance’s vent slots.
The floor must have a sufficient loadbearing capacity!
If, for example, you are stacking a washer and the

Anti-crease
If the textiles cannot be removed from the dryer
after completion of the drying cycle, this anticreasing cycle will automatically start, separating and
smoothing your clothing to reduce creasing.
Throughout this anti-crease stage the drum
rotates briefly every 60 seconds for 2 hours; at
the same time a buzzer sounds.
The machine will not run in the following
conditions:
1. When the loaded clothing is fully dry,
2. When the dryer is empty
requiring regular ironing
* only for White/coloured cottons
Select drying level only as high as absolutely
necessary. This will treat the textiles with care
and limits the energy consumption.
When the laundry is dry at the beginning phase of
the cycle, the sensor thinks that either the tumble is
empty or laundry is fully dry. In this case anti-crease
cycle will be aborted.
Special programmes
A number of special programmes are also available:
–
Delicate Program
Extra gentle drying at a reduced temperature
and limited programme duration of approx. 20
minutes. Textiles such as fine textiles, delicate
underwear and accessories like a scarf can be

Care & maintenance
Fluff filter
Fluff balls are generated during the wearing of the clothes - not by drying. When drying, these fluff balls are trapped
in the fluff filter. Normally, laundry are worn out by everyday usage and washing compared to drying.
It is important to clean the fluff filter after every drying cycle
To clean the fluff filter:
1.
2.
Open the door.
Pull out the fluff filter.
4.
Open out the fluff filter
5. Carefully remove the fluff by hand or with
a soft, dry cloth.
3. Open the filter by pushing the handle.
Check regularly that inside the filter,
there is no accumulation of fibre and dust.
Clean using a vacuum cleaner.
Once a month, wash the filter very gently under
clean and cold tap water to get rid of the dust. Place
it in a dry place until the filter is dry and re-fit before
next using your tumble dryer.
