Grounding instructions (see installation)
WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE GROUNDED.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check
with a qualified electrician or service representative or
personnel if you are in doubt as to whether the
appliance is properly grounded!
In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding
will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a
path of least resistance for electric current. This appliance
is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
DO NOT modify the plug provided with the appliance:
if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician or exchange the cord with an
appropriate one rated for the dryer.
REFER TO THE RATING PLATE FOR VOLTAGE AND
CURRENT REQUIREMENTS (see diagram for location).
The dryer should be connected to the mains supply
via a suitable socket which is accessible after
installing your dryer. This dryer must be connected to
30A INDIVIDUAL BRANCH CIRCUIT.

are not in the way of the door seal. Close the door.
5. If the On/Off light is not lit: Press the ON/OFF
button.
6. Choose a program by checking the Programs guide
(see Programs) as well as the indications for each
type of fabric (see Laundry).
- Select a program by rotating the PROGRAMS
knob.
7. Set a delay time and other options if necessary.
8. If you wish to select the buzzer to sound, at the
end of the program, press the ALARM Option button.
9. Press the START button to begin. The display will
show the estimated time to end.
During the drying program, you can check on
your laundry and take out the items that are dry
while others continue drying. When you close
the door again, press the START button in order
to resume drying.
10. During the last few minutes of Drying Programs,
before the program is completed, the final AIR
FLUFF phase is entered (fabrics are cooled), this
phase should always be allowed to complete.
11. The buzzer (if Alarm Option was selected) will
warn you when the program is complete.
Open the door, take your laundry out, clean the filter
and replace it (see Maintenance).
If the Post Creasecare Option has been selected
and you do not take the clothes out immediately,
the clothes will tumble occasionally for 10 hours
or until you open the door.
12. Unplug the dryer.
Easy Iron Program
Easy Iron is a short 10 minute programme (8 minutes of heat followed by a 2 minute Air Fluff period) which fluffs
the fibers of clothing that have been left in the same position/location for an extended period of time. The cycle
relaxes the fibers and makes them easier to iron and fold.
! Easy Iron is not a drying program and should not be used for wet articles of clothing.
For best results:
1. Do not load more than the maximum capacity.
These numbers refer to the dry weight:
Fabric
Maximum load
Regular Cotton and Regular Cotton mix
5.5 lb / 2.5 kg
Permanent Press
4 lb / 2 kg
Denim
4 lb / 2 kg
2. Unload the dryer immediately after the end of the program, hang, fold or iron the articles and put them away.
Should this not be possible, repeat the program.
The Easy Iron effect varies from one fabric to the next. It works very well on traditional fabrics like Regular
Cottons or Regular Cotton mix, and less well on acrylic fibers.
Wool Program
�
�
�
�
�
This is a program for tumble dryer safe garments marked with the symbol
.
It can be used for load sizes up to 2 lb / 1 kg (approximately 3 sweaters).
We recommend that garments are turned inside out before drying.
This program will take about 20 to 40 minutes, but may take longer depending on the size and density of the
load and the spin speed used in your washer.
Loads dried using this program are usually ready to wear, but on some heavier garments the edges may be
slightly damp. Allow these to dry naturally as over-drying could damage garments.
! Unlike other materials, the mechanism of wool shrinkage is irreversible; i.e. it will not stretch back to
original size and shape.
! This programme is not suitable for Acrylic garments.

Special clothing items
Times are approximate and can vary depending
upon:
Blankets and Bedspreads: acrylic items (Acilan,
Courtelle, Orion, Dralon) must be dried with special
care on LOW heat setting. Avoid drying for a long
period of time.
�
�
Pleated or creased garments: read the manufacturer’s
drying instructions on the garment.
Starched articles: do not dry these with non-starched
items. Make sure that as much of the starch solution is
removed from the load as possible before placing it in
the dryer. Do not over-dry: the starch will become
powdery and leave your clothing limp, which defeats
the purpose of starch.

Amount of water retained in clothes after spin
cycle: towels and delicates retain a lot of water.
Fabrics: items that are the same type of fabric but
different textures and thicknesses may not have
the same drying time.
Quantity of laundry: single items or small loads
may take longer to dry.
Dryness: If you are going to iron some of your
clothes, they can be taken out while still a bit
damp. Others can be left longer if you need them
to be completely dry.
Heat setting.
Room temperature: if the room where the dryer is
located is cold, it will take longer for the dryer to
dry your clothes.
Bulk: some bulky items can be tumble dried with
care. We suggest that you remove these items
several times, shake them out, and return them to
the dryer until finished.
! Do not over-dry your clothes.
All fabrics contain a little natural moisture, which
keeps them soft and fluffy.
Maintenance and Care
When you should switch off the electricity
Check the drum after each cycle
Unplug the dryer when not using it, when cleaning it
and during maintenance activities.
Turn the drum manually in order to remove small items
(handkerchiefs) that could have been left behind.
Clean the filter after each cycle
The filter is an important part of your dryer:
it accumulates lint and fluff that is formed while drying.
Small items could also become trapped in the filter.
When finished drying, therefore, clean the filter by
rinsing it under running water or with your vacuum
cleaner. Should the filter become clogged up, the airflow
inside the dryer will be seriously compromised: drying
times lengthen and you will consume more energy. It
may also damage your dryer.
The filter is found in front
of the dryer trim
(see diagram).
Cleaning the drum
! Do not use abrasives, steel wool or stainless steel
cleaning agents to clean the drum.
A coloured film may start to appear on the stainless
steel drum, this may be caused by a combination of
water and, or cleaning agents such as fabric conditioner
from the wash. This coloured film will not affect the
dryer performance.
Cleaning the dryer
�
�
�
Removing the filter:
1. Pull the plastic grip of
the filter upwards (see
diagram).
2. Clean the filter and
replace it correctly.
Ensure the filter is fully
located flush into the
tumble dryer trim.
EN
External parts in metal or plastic and rubber parts
can be cleaned with a damp cloth.
Periodically check the vent tube and any
permanent venting fixture to make sure that there
has been no accumulation of fluff or lint, and
remove it.
Remove lint that collects around the filter and the
outlet vents.
! Do not use solvents or abrasives.
! Your dryer uses special bearing components which
do not need lubrication.
! Have your dryer checked regularly by authorized
technicians to ensure electrical and mechanical safety.
! Do not use the dryer without replacing the filter..
