Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation!
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure that they
are offered for recycling.
Disposal of your old machine
Electrical and electronic machines
often contain materials which if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be
potentially hazardous to human health
and to the environment. They are,
however, essential for the correct
functioning of your machine. Please do
not therefore dispose of it with your
household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged or
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply by a competent person.

Energy saving tips
To avoid unnecessarily long drying
times and high consumption of energy:
– Make sure that your laundry is
thoroughly spun before drying.
The higher the spin, the greater the
savings that can be made in energy
and time during drying.
– Load according to the optimum
amount of laundry recommended for
the programme being used.
Underloading is uneconomical.
Overloading gives a poorer quality of
drying and may cause unnecessary
creasing.
– Make sure the room in which the
dryer is located is well ventilated.
– After every cycle remove the fluff
from the fluff filter in the door and in
the door opening (see "Cleaning and
Care").
– Check the condenser unit from time
to time and clean it when necessary.

It can cause health problems in both
people and animals.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the
following textiles must not be dried in
this tumble dryer:
~ To prevent the risk of fire, the
– items which have not been washed.
– fabrics which contain a large
proportion of rubber, foam rubber or
rubber-like materials. For example,
products made from latex foam
rubber, shower caps, waterproof
textiles, rubberised articles and items
of clothing and pillows with foam
rubber filling.
– items, such as workwear, which have
not been thoroughly cleaned and
which are still soiled with grease, oil
or other desposits (such as
cosmetics, lotions etc).
If items have not been thoroughly
cleaned there is a danger that these
might ignite when heated, even after
they have been removed from the
dryer at the end of the programme.
– items which have been treated with
inflamable cleaning agents or
contain residues of acetone, alcohol,
benzine, petrol, stain remover,
turpentine, wax, wax remover or
other chemicals (e.g. mops and floor
cloths).

items ensure that you use sufficient
detergent and select a high
temperature. If in doubt, wash the
items several times.
following textiles or products must not
be dried in this tumble dryer:
– which contain padding or fillings
(e.g. pillows, jackets). If these were
damaged the filling could get out
with the risk of igniting in the dryer.
~ In many programmes, the heating
phase is followed by a cooling down
phase to ensure that the items are not
too hot to handle when you remove
them (this also avoids the danger of the
laundry self-igniting). The programme is
not finished until the cooling down
phase is complete.
Ensure that you always wait until the
end of the programme before removing
the laundry.
~ Warning: Do not switch the tumble
dryer off before the end of the drying
programme. If this was done and the
laundry was then removed immediately
it could give off a great amount of heat.
~ Fabric conditioner and similar
products must be used according to
the instructions on the manufacturer's
packaging.

containing solvents to get into the
tumble dryer. Fire hazard.
~ For tumble dryers with stainless
steel surfaces:
The stainless steel surfaces must not
come into contact with liquid cleaning
and disinfecting agents which contain
chlorine or sodium hypochlorite. These
agents can have a corrosive effect on
stainless steel.
Aggressive vapours containing chlorine
can also be corrosive.
Do not store containers of these agents
near the machine.

Notes on laundry care
Care symbols
Before drying check the drying symbol
on the care label. If there are no
symbols, dry at your own risk!
q . . . . . . . . . Dry at normal temperature
r . . . . . . . . . . Dry at a low temperature
s . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Do not tumble dry
Tips on drying
– Always observe the maximum
recommended loads given in the
"Programme chart". Never overload
the drum.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry, give a
disappointing drying result and
cause more creasing.
– Do not put soaking wet items into the
tumble dryer. Spin them thoroughly
after washing using the appropriate
spin speed.
– For delicates and fabrics with the
following care label r select Low
temperature.
– Open jackets so that they can dry
evenly.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. They can, however,
be "fluffed up" using the Woollens
handcare programme.
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.
They can be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
– Pure linen should only be machine
dried if specified as suitable by the
manufacturer on the care label, as
the surface of the fabric may
otherwise become rough. They can
be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink depending
on their quality. Do not over-dry
these textiles. When purchasing
these garments it is advisable to take
their shrinkage properties into
account.
– Minimum iron fabrics and 100%
cotton shirts or blouses tend to
crease more, the larger the load,
particularly when the weave of the
fabric is very fine.
Reduce the load or use the Shirts
programme.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. To achieve the usual
finish, double the amount of starch
should be used.
– New dark coloured garments should
be washed and dried separately
from light coloured garments to avoid
the danger of colours running and
discolouring other garments or even
plastic components in the machine.
Dark coloured fibres can also settle
on light coloured garments and vice
versa.

A Sort the laundry
To ensure an even drying result
separate out the washed laundry and
sort it according to:
. . . the drying level required
. . . the type of fibre or weave
. . . size
. . . the moisture content after spinning.
Do not overload the drum. See the
"Programme chart" for
recommended loads for each
programme.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry and
give a disappointing drying result.
,Make sure that objects e.g.
detergent dispensing balls have
been removed from the laundry.
They could melt, and cause damage
to the dryer or the laundry.
– Check seams and stitching to ensure
that padding and linings are intact.
– Fasten duvet covers and pillow
cases to prevent small items from
being trapped inside them.
– Fasten zips, hooks and eyes etc.
– Tie fabric belts and apron strings.
– Sew in or remove underwiring from
bras.
Check the laundry is right inside the
drum so that it cannot get trapped or
damaged when the door is shut.
^ Shut the door either with a gentle
swing, or lean against it and push it
shut.

How to dry correctly
Estimated time remaining
At the end of a programme
When a programme is selected the
estimated drying time will appear in the
display. Please be aware that it is only
an estimate!
Anti-crease (if selected) and Finish will
appear in the display at the end of the
programme.
During the anti-crease phase (if
selected) the drum will turn at intervals
for an hour to help prevent creasing.
The following factors all affect the
estimated time remaining: residual
moisture content after spinning; type of
fabric; size of load; room temperature;
fluctuations in power supply.
The electronics continually assess
conditions in the machine and adjust
the estimated time remaining for a more
accurate reading. Because of this the
time displayed can alter during the
course of a programme.
In the same way, the Woollens
handcare and Smoothing programmes
can finish earlier than expected if a
certain temperature is reached. This
can happen with particularly fine
fabrics or if items were partly dry
beforehand.
Before the end of a programme
There is a cooling down phase at the
end of the drying sequence: Cooling
down will appear in the display. The
programme will not finish until the
cooling down phase has been
completed.
There is no cooling down phase at the
end of the following programmes:
Woollens hand care, Smoothing.

When moving the machine you can
hold it by the lid where it protrudes to
the rear of the dryer. To manoeuvre the
dryer out of its packing case to its
installation site you will also need to
hold it by the front feet.
Levelling the machine
^ The screw feet can be adjusted to
compensate for any unevenness in
the floor.
,The ventilation gaps in the plinth
and the front panel must not be
covered over as this would prevent
a sufficient intake of air.
This tumble dryer is not suitable for
building under.
Room in which the dryer is located
The machine must be perfectly level to
ensure safe and proper operation.
Air taken in for use in the drying
process will be warm when it is
expelled from underneath the dryer.
This expelled air heats up the air in the
room. It is therefore very important to
ensure that the room is adequately
ventilated, particularly if the dryer is
located in a small room. Otherwise
running times and energy consumption
could be increased.
