Drying hints
Before loading the laundry
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:
may be tumble dried
normal drying (high temperature)
delicate drying (low temperature)
do not tumble dry
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.
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 30 minutes. This will be
necessary particularly for multilayered
items (e.g. collars, pockets, etc.).
Make sure that no metal objects
are left in the laundry (e.g. hair
clips, safety pins, pins).
Button up pillowcases, close zip
fasteners, hooks and poppers. Tie any
belts or long tapes.
To avoid laundry becoming tangled:
close zips, button up duvet covers and
tie loose ties or ribbons (e.g. of aprons).
Turn items with double-layered fabrics
inside out (e.g. with cottonlined anoraks,
the cotton layer should be outermost).
These fabrics will then dry better.

Care and cleaning
You must DISCONNECT the appliance
from the electricity supply, before you
can carry out any cleaning or
maintenance work.
External cleaning
The filter in the inner door must be
removed for cleaning.
Use only soap and water and then dry
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 from the
seals around the filter. Accurate cleaning ensures correct drying.
Cleaning the filters
Your dryer will only function well if the filters are clean.
The filters collect all the fluff which
accumulates during drying and they
must therefore be cleaned at the end
of each programme, before removing
the laundry, with a damp cloth.
The light
is on to remind you this
Do not be alarmed by the amount of fluff. It
is not due to excessive wear caused by the
All fabric loses fluff when drying but it
goes un-noticed in the air. In a tumble
dryer it simply collects in the filter.
After a while, a withish patina due to
detergent residue on laundry forms on
the filters. When this occurs, clean the
filters with warm water using a brush.
Remove the filter in the door opening
as per picture (it can be positioned with

Do not use the appliance without filters.
Cleaning the condenser unit
Clean the condenser when light
The condenser is situated at the lower part
of the cabinet behind a small door. To open
the door, push the catch as per picture.
During the drying cycle or at the end, it is normal
for water to be present on the surface of the
condenser insertion.
Clean it with a brush and rinse it under the
shower if necessary.
Also clean the outside, removing all fluff.
Clean the rubber seal round the condenser
cabinet and in the inner part of the small
door with a damp cloth.
Important! Do not use pointed objects
or utensils to clean the spaces
between the plates, as this could damage the condenser and make it permeable.
Re-fit the condenser, turn the red stops
upwards and close the door.
To pull out the condenser, first turn the two
red stops downwards and then remove the
condenser unit holding it at the handle.
Do not use this appliance if the condenser
has not been fitted.
Emptying the water reservoir
Water extracted from the laundry condenses inside the machine and is collected in a
The reservoir must be emptied after each
drying cycle to ensure efficient operation
when the machine is next used. The pilot

Proceed as follows:
• Open the small door at the lower part of
the cabinet

used in a steam iron or to top up a battery,
etc. In this case it must be filtered (e.g.
through a coffee filter)).
• Turn the yellow stop upwards

• Close the small cover and re-insert correctly the reservoir
• Push it until it clicks and turn the yellow
stop downwards to lock firmly it
• Close the small door and press the
START/PAUSE button again to allow the
programme to continue.
Cleaning the drum
When your laundry does not reach the desired
degree of dryness, in other words, when it
turns out either too dry or too damp, we
advise you to clean the inside of the drum with
a cloth soaked with vinegar.
This will eliminate the slight patina that has
formed in the drum (due to residues of
detergent and softeners used in the washing, and to the lime contained in the water),
which prevents the probes from detecting
the correct degree of dryness.
The reservoir must be re-iinserted correctly.
After emptying and inserting the reservoir
the START-button has to be depressed
again to allow the programme to continue.

consumer services department will repair this
upon request, either during or after the guarantee
period. The service life of the appliance will not,
however, be reduced as a result.
This declaration of guarantee terms is based on
European Union Directive 99/44/EC and the
provisions of the Civil Code. The statutory rights that
the consumer has under this legislation are not
affected by this declaration of guarantee terms.
This declaration does not affect the vendor's
statutory warranty to the end user. The appliance
is guaranteed within the context of and in
adherence with the following terms:
1. In accordance with provisions laid down in
paragraphs 2 to 15, we will remedy free of charge
any defect that occurs within 24 months from the
date the appliance is delivered to the first end user.
These guarantee terms do not apply in the event of
use for professional or equivalent purposes.
2. Performing the guarantee means that the
appliance is returned to the condition it was in
before the defect occurred. Defective parts are
replaced or repaired. Parts replaced free of
charge become our property.
3. So as to avoid more severe damage, the defect
must be brought to our attention immediately.
4. Applying the guarantee is subject to the
consumer providing proof of purchase showing
the purchase and/or delivery date.
5. The guarantee will not apply if damage caused to
delicate parts, such as glass (vitreous ceramic),
synthetic materials and rubber, is the result of
inappropriate use.
6. The guarantee cannot be called on for minor
faults that do not affect the value or the overall
reliability of the appliance.
7. The statutory warranty does not apply when
defects are caused by:
– a chemical or electrochemical reaction
caused by water,

– unsuitable operating conditions,
– contact with harsh substances.
