Satarting a drying program
o Open the tumble dryer door.
o Load the clothes loosely into the drum. Items such as sheets should
be loaded corner-first.
o Close the door and dry your hands thoroughly.
o Press the start button (3) and the drum will begin rotating.
o The tumble dryer will stop when the drying program has completed.
14
Drying program guidance
o Check the wash care labels of the garments that you want to dry, to
make sure that they are suitable for drying in a tumble dryer.
o The maximum amount of clothing that can be dried in your appliance
in a single drying cycle is 6kg. If the tumble dryer is overloaded, then
the drying performance will be affected and clothing may come out
creased.
o If you have taken the clothes you want to dry out of a washing
machine with an inadequate spin cycle, roll the clothes in a towel to
remove the excess water.
o IMPORTANT: Do not dry clothes that are dripping wet.
o Only dry garments of the same fabric type in a single drying program.
If heavy and light fabrics are dried in the same drying cycle, then you
will get uneven drying performance.
o When drying larger garments such as sheets, it is advisable not to
place more than two garments in the appliance at once. You should
stop the dryer before the completion of a program to redistribute the
load.
o Delicate items such as tights and stockings should be placed inside a
pillowcase before drying.
o DO NOT dry clothes containing foam rubber (latex foam), shower caps,
waterproof textiles, rubber backed articles and clothes or pillows fitted
with foam rubber pads in the appliance.
o DO NOT dry one item at a time as the garment will roll up and
increase the drying time.
o Close pillowcases and covers with fasteners to prevent smaller items
getting tangled inside them.
o Fasten press studs, zips, hooks, tie belts, apron strings, etc.
o Avoid drying dark and light coloured fluffy items together as the fluff
could transfer.
IMPORTANT: If the clothes become dry before the cycle has
finished, the thermostat will automatically switch off the heater to
prevent over-drying the garments. This will save energy although
the drum will still rotate.
IMPORTANT: remove all metal objects such as hair clips, pins, coins, etc.

Maintenance and cleaning
In daily use
o The filter should be cleaned after each drying cycle.
o Leave the porthole door ajar for a short while after a drying cycle
has completed. This should help to prevent stagnant smells and to
protect the door seal.
o We suggest that you disconnect the appliance from your mains
supply when it is not in use.
Control panel and tumble dryer cabinet.
IMPORTANT: Do not use any abrasive cleaner or household polish on
either the control panel or operating parts.
o Wipe over the control panel and the external surface of the machine
using a brand new damp cloth with warm water.
The tumble dryer drum
The drum of your tumble dryer is constructed from galvanized steel.
However if there are objects that can rust placed inside the drum, then it
is possible for the drum to become stained.
IMPORTANT: Do not use a descaling agent, iron/steel wool or scouring
agents to clean the drum of your appliance.
Door
o You should regularly check to see if any deposits have formed
around the door, or there are any foreign bodies in the rubber door
gasket. This sits inside the opening of the porthole door.
17
The filter
o It is important to remove fluff from the filter after each drying
cycle.
o You should disconnect the appliance from the mains supply before
cleaning the filter.
o The filter is located inside the doorway rim at the bottom, as shown
in the below diagram.
o To remove
upwards.
the
filter,
pull
it
o Remove any thread or fluff by hand
or with a soft brush.
o Slide the filter back into position.
o Wash the filter occasionally in a detergent solution and with a soft
bush to remove all small particles. Do not use an abrasive cleaning
product on the filter.
18
Installation
IMPORTANT:
THIS
INSTALLATION
MUST
BE
COMPLETED BY A SUITABLY QUALIFIED PERSON.
BAUMATIC ONLY SANCTION THE INSTALLATION GIVEN
IN THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL. YOU SHOULD KEEP
THE TRANSIT PACKAGING, IN CASE YOU NEED TO
TRANSPORT THE MACHINE IN THE FUTURE.
Installing the appliance
o Your dryer is provided with a vent hose which will extend to
approximately 1.8 metres. It is strongly recommended that this is
vented through a wall or window with the attachment provided.
o This appliance is NOT designed to be built-in, however, if required
you should cut a hole for the vent hose (100 mm diameter) directly
behind the appliance opposite the vent exhaust hole in order to lay
the extraction hose without kinking it.
IMPORTANT: THIS APPLIANCE MUST NOT BE BUILT-IN.
o If the vent through the wall is to be positioned anywhere else other
than behind the dryer, the vent hose should be located at floor level
and through an adjacent side panel to a suitable position.
o IMPORTANT: The air vents at the back of the appliance must
never be covered or blocked in any way as this will cause the
dryer to overheat. You MUST leave a gap of at least 2cm at
the back of the appliance.
19
Positioning
The appliance should be positioned on a solid and flat surface. This will
reduce vibration and noise. Large amounts of vibration can damage the
appliance.
If required, you can use the adjustable feet to help level the appliance
o Loosen the locking nut
o Turn the feet right to increase
the height.
o Turn the feet left to decrease
the height.
o Tighten the locking nut when
you are happy that the dryer is
level.
Installing the vent hose
It is very important that the hot moist air which is expelled from this
appliance is extracted properly. Failing to do so could result in
condensation in the area surrounding your appliance.
Generally, the best way to extract the dryers exhaust is to funnel the air
outside using the vent hose provided. The hose can be positioned
temporarily, for example, out of an open window; or it can be installed
permanently through a fixed ventilation grille.
o Attach the ventilation hose to the back of the appliance by inserting
the hose into the exhaust-hole ring (A).
o There are two exhaust outlet points, one at the rear and one at the
side. Connect the hose to whichever is the more convenient. The
unused exhaust hole should be sealed closed with the snap cover (D)
which is provided.
o Align the arrows of the hose (B) to the exhaust ring (A), insert the
hose, and then turn the hose clockwise, locking it into position (B).
20
o Once connected to the dryer, you should then run the hose to your
chosen outlet point.
o The hose should not contain more than two bends, and you should
not allow the hose to become blocked or kinked.
IMPORTANT: If outlet is far away from your appliance, thus
making the hose long in length, then you should take steps to
prevent water condensation from interfering with the appliance.
See below for preventative steps.
o If the hose is long and the room temperature is low, then the moisture
might condense inside the hose. This is an unavoidable natural
phenomenon.
o To prevent this water from lying in the hose or
flowing back into the tumble dryer, it is advisable
to drill a small hole in the lowest point of the hose
to drain the excess water (C).
o The drilled hole should be approximately 3mm in
diameter, and you should place a small container
to catch the excess water.
Power supply
o IMPORTANT: The electrical socket or mains switch must still
be accessible once the appliance is installed.
o Consult the rating plate, located on the back of the appliance
BEFORE making the electrical connections. Ensure that the voltage
reaching the plug is the same as that on the rating plate.
21
o DO NOT REMOVE THE RATING PLATE AS THE INFORMATION
ON IT IS IMPORTANT.
o The moulded plug that is supplied with the appliance must be
placed into an earthed and insulated socket.
o The special mains cable and plug assembly must only be replaced
with a genuine part from the Baumatic Spares department or our
appointed service agent.
o IMPORTANT: We do not recommend that this appliance is
connected to an extension lead.
Troubleshooting
o If your tumble dryer appears to have a fault, please check the table
below before calling the Baumatic Customer Care Helpline.
