INSTALLATION
APPLIANCE POSITIONING
• The tumble dryer must be installed in a
clean position, where dirt does not collect.
• Air must flow freely around the appliance. Make sure that the front airflow
slots in the bottom of the appliance are
not blocked .
• To keep vibration and noise at the minimum, when the tumble dryer operates,
it must be put on a stable and flat surface.
• When the appliance is put in its permanent position, check if is fully level with
the aid of a spirit level. If it is not, adjust
the feet until it is.
• Do not remove the feet. Do not decrease the floor clearance through thick
carpets, bar of wood or equivalent. This
can increase the heat which can cause
interference with the operation of the
appliance.
• The temperature of the hot air
which occurs in the tumble dryer can increase to 60 °C. The
appliance must not be installed
on the floor which is not resistant to high temperatures.
• When the tumble dryer operates, the room temperature
must not be lower than +5 °C
and higher than +35 °C. This
can cause unwanted effect on
the performance of the appliance.
• If it is necessary to move the appliance, it must be moved vertically.
• The appliance must not be installed behind a lockable door,
a sliding door, a door with a
hinge on the opposite side to
that of the appliance in such a
way that a full opening of the
tumble dryer is restricted.
It is possible to adjust the height of the
tumble dryer. To do that adjust the feet
(see picture).
