Take out fine strainer.
Remove fluff from fine strainer. It
is best to use a damp hand for this
purpose.
Clean the entire filter area
The strainer area does not have to
be cleaned after every drying cycle,
but should be checked regularly
and cleaned of fluff if necessary.
7. To do this, grip the top of the large mesh filter and pull it forwards until it
comes loose from the two brackets.
8. Remove fluff from the entire filter
area. It is best to use a vacuum
cleaner for this purpose.
9. Press both journals of the large
mesh filter into the brackets on the
loading door until they snap into
place.
10. Re-insert fine strainer.
11. Press against the large mesh filter
until it locks into the interlock.
Care and cleaning

If the fine strainer is not fitted, the large mesh
filter will not snap into place and the loading
door cannot be closed.
Cleaning the door seal
Wipe the door seal with a damp cloth immediately after the drying cycle has
finished.
Emptying the condensate tank
Empty condensate tank after every drying cycle.
If the condensate tank is full, an active programme will break off automatically

Care and cleaning
2. Pour condensed water out into a basin or similar receptacle.
3. Slide outlet connections in and refit
condensate tank.
If the programme has been interrupted as a result of the condensate tank
being full: Press the START PAUSE
START PAUZE button to continue the
drying cycle.
The condensate tank has a volume of approx. 4 litres. This is sufficient for around
7 kg of laundry which has previously been spun at 1000 revolutions/ minute.
The condensate can be used as distilled water, e.g. for steam ironing. However first
filter the condensate (e.g. with a coffee filter) to remove any residue and small
pieces of fluff.
Cleaning heat exchanger
If the HEAT EXCHANGER
is displayed, the heat exchanger needs to be cleaned.
CAUTION!
Operating when the heat exchanger is blocked with fluff can damage the dryer.
This also increases energy consumption.
1. Open door.
2. Open door in plinth. To do this, press
the release button on the bottom of
the door aperture and open the door
in the plinth to the left.
3. Clean fluff from the inside of the
door and the heat exchanger front
chamber. Wipe the door seal with a
damp cloth.
Care and cleaning
29
4. Turn both lock washers inwards.
5. Use the handle to pull the heat
exchanger out of the base and carry
it horizontally to prevent any remaining water from spilling.
6. To empty the heat exchanger, hold
vertically over a washing-up bowl.
CAUTION!
Do not use sharp objects to clean. The
heat exchanger could develop leaks.
7. Clean heat exchanger.
It is best to use a brush or to rinse thoroughly with a hand-held shower.
8. Replace heat exchanger and lock into place (turn both lock washers outwards
until they snap into place).
9. Close door in plinth.
CAUTION!
Never operate the dryer without the heat exchanger.
Cleaning the drum
CAUTION!
Do not use abrasives or steel wool to clean the drum.
Lime in the water or cleaning agents may form a barely visible lining on the inside
of the drum. The degree to which the laundry has been dried is then no longer
detected reliably. The laundry is damper than expected when removed from the
dryer.
Use a standard domestic cleaner (e.g. vinegar-based cleaner) to wipe down the
inside of the drum and drum ribs.
30
Care and cleaning
Clean operating screen and housing
CAUTION!
Do not use furniture cleaners or aggressive cleaning agents to clean the machine.

Changing the bulb for interior lighting
Only use a special bulb which is designed specially for dryers. The special bulb can
be obtained from the Customer Care Department, ET no. 112 552 000-5.
When the appliance is switched on, the interior lighting switches itself off after 4
minutes when the door is open.
WARNING!
Do not use standard bulbs! These develop too much heat and may damage the
machine!
WARNING!
Before replacing the bulb, disconnect the mains plug.
1. Unscrew cover above the bulb (this can be found directly behind the loading
aperture, at the top; refer to “Description of machine” section.)
2. Replace defective bulb.
3. Screw cover back down.
Check the correct positioning of o-ring gasket before screwing back the door light
cover. Do not operate the dryer when missing o-ring gasket on door light cover.
WARNING!
For safety reasons, the cover must be screwed down tightly. If this is not done, the
dryer must not be operated.

Hints for test institutes
Parameters possible to checked by the Test Institutes:
• Energy consumption (corrected with final humidity) during the cupboard dry
cotton cycle with nominal load.
• Energy consumption (corrected with final humidity) during the cupboard dry
cotton cycle with half load.
• Final humidity (during Cupboard dry cotton, Iron dry cotton and Cupboard dry

• Condensation efficiency (corrected with final humidity) during cupboard dry
cotton cycle with nominal and half load
All the cycles have to be checked in accordance with IEC 61121 (Tumble dryers for
household use – Methods for measuring the performance).
Installation
Appliance positioning
• It is recommended that, for your convenience, the machine is positioned close
to your washing machine.
• The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean place, where dirt does not build
up.
• Air must be able to circulate freely all round the appliance. Do not obstruct the
front ventilation grille or the air intake grilles at the back of the machine.
• To keep vibration and noise to a minimum when the dryer is in use, it should be
placed on a firm, level surface.
• Once in its permanent operating position, check that the dryer is absolutely level
with the aid of a spirit level. If it is not, raise or lower the feet until it is.
• The feet must never be removed. Do not restrict the floor clearance through
deeppile carpets, strips of wood or similar. This might cause heat built-up which
would interfere with the operation of the appliance.
The hot air emitted by the tumble dryer can reach temperatures of up to 60°C. The
appliance must therefore not be installed on floors which are not resistant to high
temperatures.
When operating the tumble dryer, the room temperature must not be lower than
+5°C and higher than +35°C, as it may affect the performance of the appliance.

Environment
Environmental tips
• In the dryer, laundry becomes fluffy and soft. Fabric softeners are not therefore
needed when washing.
• Your dryer will function most economically if you:
– always keep the ventilation slots on the base of the dryer unobstructed;
– use the loading volumes specified in the programme overview;
– ensure you have good ventilation in the installation room;
– clean the micro-fine filter and fine strainer after each drying cycle;
– spin the laundry well before drying. Example: Consumption data – depending
on spinning speed – for 7kg of laundry, dried using the COTTONS CUPBOARD
DRY programme.
