Important Information
AUS
For your Condenser dryer to operate efficiently,
you must follow the regular maintenance
schedule shown below:
Fluff Filter – You MUST Clean the fluff filter
after every drying cycle.
Failure to clean the filter after every drying
cycle will affect the drying performance of your
machine – It will take longer to dry and as a
result will use more electricity during drying.
Water Container – You must empty the water
container after every drying cycle.
Step 1
Open the door of your dryer.
2
Step 2
Pull out the filter (using the two
finger grips).
Step 3
Open the filter by releasing the
clip.
Step 4
Clean any fluff deposits from the
inside surface of the filter mesh.
Step 1
Pull the water container
towards you and remove it fully
from the dryer.
Step 2
Empty the Water from the
Container.
Step 3
Refit the Water Container
ensuring that it is pushed fully
back into position...
Failure to empty the Water Container will result in:
- The machine will stop heating (so the load
may be wet at the end of the cycle).
- The ”Empty Water” light will flash to tell you
that the Container is full.
The water bottle/clean
Step 5
Refit the filter – Never run the
dryer without a filter.
filter light comes on when
you select a programme to
remind you to make sure
that the water bottle is
empty and that the filter is
clean before starting a new
cycle’
Priming the Water Collection System
When your dryer is new, the Water Container will
not collect Water until the system is primed, this
will take 1 or 2 drying cycles. Once primed it
will collect Water during every cycle.
2
Condenser unit - You must clean the fluff from
the condenser every month!
AUS
Step 1
Open the Condenser Cover
- hold the handle and pull
towards you.
Step 2
Remove the condenser by
rotating the 3 clips then pulling
the condenser towards you.
(There may be some water in the
tubes this is normal).
Step 3
Flush the condenser, from the
rear with water, to remove any
fluff deposits.
Step 4
Refit the condenser unit - ensure
that the unit is pushed in fully, all
3 clips are resecured and the
positioning arrows on the front of
the condenser are pointing
upwards.
Failure to clean the condenser could cause
premature failure of your dryer!

Installation
Before plugging the appliance into the socket, check the
following:
• Make sure your hands are dry.
• The socket must have an earth connection.
• The socket must be able to withstand the machine’s
maximum power output as indicated on the data plate (see
Description of the tumble dryer).
• The power supply voltage must fall within the values
indicated on the data plate (see Description of the tumble
dryer).
• The socket must be compatible with the machine’s plug. If
not, either the socket or the plug must be replaced.
Do not use extension cords.
The tumble dryer must not be installed in outdoor spaces,
even if sheltered. It may be very dangerous to expose this
appliance to rain and thunderstorms.
Once dryer installation is complete, the electric cord and
plug must be at hand.
The electric cord must not be bent or crushed.
If the plug is replaced is of the moulded type, it must be
disposed of in a safe way, DO NOT leave it where it can be
plugged into a scoket and cause electric shocks.
The electric cord must be regularuily checked and replaced
with a cord specifically designed for this dryer: it must then be
installed by an authorised technician only (see Assistance).
New or longer electric cords are supplied by authorised
delaers at a supplementary cost.
The manufacturer declines all reposnsibility for filaure to
observe these instructions.
CAUTION: If this appliance is supplied from an extension
cord or portable oulet device, the extension cord or portable
device must be positioned so that it is not subjected to
splashing or contact with moisture.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer, its servive agent or simlarily qulified persons in
order to avoid a hazard.
10 mm
Electrical connections
• Place your dryer at a distance
from gas ranges, stoves,
heaters, or cooktops because
flames can damage the
appliance.
If you are going to install the
appliance under a work counter,
15 mm
15 mm
be sure to leave a 10 mm
space between the top and any
other objects on or above the
machine and a 15 mm space
between the sides and lateral
furnishings or walls. This is to ensure proper air circulation.
Ventilation
• When the dryer is in use, there has to be adequate
ventilation. Make sure you put your dryer in an environment
that is not damp and has proper air circulation throughout.
Airflow around the dryer is essential to condense the water
produced during the washing, the dryer will not operate
efficiently in an enclosed space or cupboard.
If using the dryer in a small or cold room some
condensation will be experienced.
We do not recommend installing the dryer in a cupboard
because dangereous levels of heat can buildup! The dryer
must not be installed behind a loackable door, a sliding
door or a door with the hinge on the opposite side to that
of the tumble dryer in such a way that the full opening of
the tumble dryer door is restricted.
Water Drain
If your dryer is installed next to a drain the water can be
plumbed into this drain. This does away with the need to
empty the water container. If the dryer is stacked onto or
installed next to a washing machine it can share the same
drain. The dryer is supplied with a length of hose and this
must be used to drain the condensed water under certain
conditions.
If you are using a washing machine with a spin speed below
1100 rpm and drying loads of 7 kg or more and for energy
label test to AUS/NZS 2442 you must plumb out the water
or the container may fill before the clothes are dried. Follow
the instruction below. The height of the drain must be less
than 3’ (1 m) from the bottom of the dryer.
Remove existing hose from position shown in picture A
and fit the supplied length of hose to location shown in
picture B.
! Make sure that the hose is not squashed or kinked
when the dryer is in its final location. The length of the
hose can be reduced if necessary to avoid this.
If in doubt about any of the above consult a qualified electrician.
Before you start using your dryer
Once you’ve installed your dryer and before you use it,
clean the inside of the drum to remove any dust that could
have accumulated during transportation.

Special Programmes
Easy Iron Programme
Easy Iron is a short 10 minute programme (8 minutes of heat followed by a 2 minutes cool tumble period) which fluffs the
fibres of clothing that has been left in the same position/location for an extended period of time. The cycle relaxes the fibres
and makes them easier to iron and fold.
Easy Iron is not a drying programme and should not be used for wet articles of clothing.
For best results:
1. Do not load more than maximum capacity. These numbers refer to dry weight:
Fabric:
Max
Cotton and Cotton mix
2.5 kg
Synthetics
2
Denim
2
2. Unload the dryer immediately after the end of the drying cycle, hang, fold or iron the articles and put them away in the
closet. Should this not be possible, repeat the cycle.
The Easy Iron effect varies from one fabric to the next. It works very well on traditional fabrics like Cotton or Cotton mix, and
less well on acrylic fibres and on materials such as Tencel.®

Special clothing items
AUS
Blankets and bedspreads: acrylic items (Acilian, Courtelle,
Orion, Dralon) must be dried with special care on a low
heat setting. Avoid drying for a long period of time.
Pleated or creased garments: read manufacturer drying
instructions on the garment.
• 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.
Starched articles: do not dry these items with
nonstarched 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.
• 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.
Drying times
Times are approximate and can vary depending upon:
The table below presents APPROXIMATE drying times in
Hours: Minutes as you see them on the display the times
are also shown in Minutes only for reference.
The times given are for Cupboard Dry Automatic
programmes.

suitable time option.
Weights refer to dry garments.
• Amount of water retained in clothes after spin cycle:
towels and delicates retain a lot of water.
• Fabrics: items that have the same type of fabric but
different textures and thicknesses may not have the
same drying times.

Warnings and Suggestions
This appliance was designed and manufactured in
compliance with current international safety standards. The
following information is provided for safety reasons and
must be read carefully.
General safety
• The final part of a tumble dryer cycle occurs without
heat (cooling cycle) to ensure that the laundry is not
damaged due to excessive temperatures.
• This tumble dryer must not be used by persons (including
children) with physical, sensory or mental impairments or
with little experience and knowledge of the appliance,
unless they are supervised or have been adequately
instructed on its use by the person responsible for their
safety.
• This tumble dryer is designed for domestic and nonprofessional use.
• Do not touch the appliance while barefoot or with wet
hands or feet.
• Unplug the appliance by pulling on the plug, not the cord.
• Do not allow children near the appliance while it is in
function. After use, switch the appliance off and unplug it.
Keep the appliance door closed to prevent children using
it as a toy.
• Children must be supervised to ensure that they do not
play with the appliance.
• The appliance must be correctly installed and receive
adequate ventilation. The air intake on the front part of
the dryer and the air vents on the rear must never be
obstructed (see Installation).
• Never use the dryer on carpeting with high pile as this
may prevent air from entering the dryer from the base.
• Check whether the dryer is empty before loading it.
•
The rear part of the dryer may become very hot:
do not touch it while the appliance is in function.
• Do not use the dryer unless the filter, water container and
condenser are properly positioned (see Maintenance).
• Do not use liquid fabric softener in the dryer; add it to the
final rinse of the wash cycle.
• Do not overload the dryer (see Laundry for the maximum
load sizes).
• Do not add items that are dripping wet.
• Tumble dry items only if they have been washed with
water and detergent, and have been rinsed and put
through a spin cycle. Drying items that have NOT been
washed with water may cause the risk of fire.
• Always read the instructions on the care label carefully
(see Laundry).
• Do not tumble dry items that have been treated with
chemical products.
• Never tumble dry items that are contaminated with
inflammable substances (cooking oil, acetone, alcohol,
petrol, kerosene, stain removers, turpentine, waxes, wax
removers and hairspray), unless they have been washed
in hot water with an extra amount of detergent.
• Do not tumble dry rubber, rubber-backed articles and
garments, cushions with foam rubber padding, latex
foam, rubber, plastic, shower caps, water-resistant
fabrics, nappy pants or liners, polyethylene and paper.
• Remove all objects from pockets, particularly lighters
(risk of explosion).
• Do not tumble dry large, excessively bulky items.
• Do not tumble dry acrylic fibres at high temperatures.
• Complete each programme with the relative cold drying
phase.
• Do not switch the tumble dryer off if items that are still
warm are inside it.
• Clean the filter after each use (see Care and maintenance).
• Empty the water container and put it back in place after
each use (see Care and maintenance).
• Clean the condenser unit regularly (see Care and maintenance).
• Do not allow lint to build up around the tumble dryer.
• Avoid climbing on the top of the dryer as this may
damage the appliance.
• Always comply with electrical regulations and
requirements (see Installation).
• Always purchase original accessories and spare parts
(see Assistance).
To minimize the risk of fire in your tumble dryer,
the following should be observed:
• Tumble dry items only if they have been washed
with detergent and water, rinsed, and been through
the spin cycle. It is a fire hazard to dry items that
HAVE NOT been washed with water.
• Do not dry garments that have been treated with
chemical products
• Do not tumble dry items that have been spotted or
soaked with vegetable or cooking oil this constitute a
fire hazard. Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously,
especially when exposed to heat sources such as a
tumble dryer. The items become warm, causing an
oxidisation reaction with the oil, Oxidisation creates
heat. If the heat cannot escape, then items can become
hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oileffected items can prevent heat from escaping and so
create a fire hazard. If it is unavoidable that fabrics that
contain vegetable or cooking oil or have been
contaminated by hair care products be placed in a
tumble dryer they should first be washed with extra
detergent – this will reduce, but not eliminate, the
hazard. The cool tumble phase should be used to
reduce to reduce the temperature of the items. They
should not be removed from the dryer or piled or
stacked while hot
• Do not tumble dry items that have previously been cleaned
in or washed in, soaked in or soiled with petrol/gasoline,
dry-cleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive
substances. Highly flammable substances commonly used
in domestic environments included cooking oil, acetone,
denatured alcohol, kerosene, spot removers, turpentine,
waxes and wax removers. Ensure these items have been
washed in hot water with an extra amount of detergent
before being dried in the tumble dryer.
• Do not tumble dry items containing foam rubber (also
known as latex foam) or similarly textured rubber like
materials. Foam rubber materials can, when heated
produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
• Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used
in a tumble dryer to eliminate the effects of static
electricity unless the practice is specifically recommend
by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
15
AUS
• Do not tumble dry undergarments that contain metal
reinforcements. Damage to the tumble dryer can result if
the metal reinforcements come loose during drying.
• Do not tumble dry plastic articles such as shower caps,
waterproof textiles or babies’ waterproof covers,
polythene, or paper.
• Do not tumble dry rubber-backed articles, clothes or
pillows fitted with foam rubber pads, pillows, galoshes
and rubber-coated tennis shoes.
• Remove all objects from pockets, especially lighters
(risk of explosion).
WARNING: Never stop the dryer before the end of the
drying cycle unless all items have been quickly removed and
hung in order to dispel heat.
Information on recycling
and disposal
As part of our continual commitment towards environmental
protection, we reserve the right to use recycled quality
components to reduce costs for our customers and to
minimise materials wastage.
• Disposing of the packaging materials: follow local
regulations to allow for recycling of packaging materials.
• In order to minimise the risk of injury to children, remove
the door and plug, then cut the power supply cord flush
with the appliance. Dispose of these parts separately to
prevent the appliance from being connected to a power
supply socket.
Disposal of old household appliances
Owners should contact their local authorities or appliance
dealers for further information concerning the correct
disposal of household appliances.
Saving energy and respecting the
environment
• Wring out items before tumble drying them to remove
the maximum amount of water possible (if they are
previously washed in a washing machine, select a spin
cycle). This ensures that energy is saved during tumble
drying.
• Always use the tumble dryer at full load to save energy:
single items and small loads may take longer to dry.
• Clean the filter at the end of each cycle to reduce energy
consumption costs (see Maintenance).

Maintenance and Care
Switching off the electricity
Empty the Water Container after each cycle
Unplug the dryer when not using it, when cleaning it, and
during maintenance activities.
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.
When finished drying, 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).
Removing the filter:
1. Pull the plastic grip of the
filter upwards (see diagram).
2. Open the filter by
depressing the clip.
3. Clean the lint from the
inside of the filter, and
replace it correctly. Ensure
the filter is fully located flush
into the tumble dryer trim.
Do not use dryer without replacing the filter.
Check the drum after each cycle
Turn the drum manually in order to remove small items
(handkerchiefs) that could have been left behind.
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.
Pull the container out of the dryer and empty it into a sink
or other suitable drain. Replace container securely.
Always check and empty the container before you start a
new drying programme.
Cleaning the Condenser Unit
• Periodically (every month) remove Condenser unit and
clean any build up of fluff from between the plates by
rinsing it under the tap with cold water. This should be
done with cold water from the rear of the condenser.
To remove condenser :
1. Unplug the dryer and open the door.
2. Pull open the condenser cover (see diagram), release
the three catches by turning 90° counter clockwise
then pull on the grip and remove from dryer.
3. Clean the surface of the seals and replace with the
arrows pointing upwards making sure that the catches
have been secured.
Cleaning the dryer
• External parts in metal or plastic and rubber parts can
be cleaned with a damp cloth.
• Periodically (every 6 months) vacuum the front Air
intake grille and Vents at the rear of the dryer, to
remove any build up of fluff, lint or dust. Also to
remove accumulation of fluff from the front of
condenser and filter areas, clean occasionally with a
vacuum cleaner.
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
(see Service).
