the slots will also be covered if the drum is overfilled. Observe the
maximum load of 5 kg. There is a risk of overheating which could
cause a fire!
• Only dry washing that does not contain any explosive objects (fire
lighters, spray cans). There is a risk of fire or an explosion!
• In the case of washer / dryer tower combinations, do not place any
objects on the dryer during use as they could drop down.
Child Safety

conditioning sheet is pinned (using a safety pin) to an article of
laundry and placed in the tumble dryer.
• When using fabric conditioning sheets or drying starched washing in
the tumble dryer, it is important to clean the drum to prevent a build
up of any residues/deposits on the sensors. See maintenance and
cleaning section.

Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning the filter area
1
Important! When the FILTER display lights, it is essential to clean the
fluff filter. Otherwise your dryer might suffer damage.

0 Reinsert the fluff filter.
0 Press against the filter lid until it clicks into
the lock.
Cleaning the drum
1 Warning! Do not clean the stainless steel drum with abrasive deter-
gents or steel wool!
0 Wipe the inside of the drum and the drum fins with white vinegar to
avoid any residues/deposits effecting the sensors. This is particularly
important if you regulary use fabric conditioning sheets or dry starched
items in the dryer.
Cleaning the panel and operating parts
1 Warning! Do not use household furniture polish or aggressive detergents.
0 Wipe over the panel and operating parts with a damp cloth.
Only use warm water.
23
Cleaning the condenser
1
Important! When the CONDENSER display lights, it is essential to clean
the condenser. Otherwise your dryer might suffer damage. In addition
energy consumption will be increased if the condenser unit is covered
with fluff.
0 Open the door.
0 Press on the two tabs to unlatch and
take off the removable plinth.
0 Turn the two securing disks through a
quarter turn each outwards.
0 Pull the CONDENSER out of the base by
the handle.
0 Clean the CONDENSER, best with a
hand-held brush or by rinsing with a
hand-held shower head. The water
removal slits on the rear of the condenser must be free too.
1
Important! Do not use any sharply pointed objects to clean the CONDENSER. They could make it leak.
0 Reinsert and push in and turn each one of the two securing disks
through a quarter turn inwards. The words "top – oben – en haut" must
be at the top.
