Drying hints
Before loading the laundry
Never tumble dry the following:
Particularly delicate items such as
net curtains, woollen, silk, fabrics
with metal trim, nylon tights, bulky
materials such as anoraks, blankets,
eiderdowns, sleeping bags, feather
quilts and any items containing rubber foam or materials similar to rubber foam.
• Always follow the instructions on garment labels:
may be tumble dried
normal drying (high temperature)
delicate drying (low temperature)
do not tumble dry
• Close pillowcases and covers with
fasteners to prevent small laundry
items getting tangled inside them.
Close press studs, zips and hooks
and tie belts and apron strings.
• Sort laundry according to type and
degree of drying required.
• Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids
creasing and saves energy.
• Avoid drying dark clothes with light
coloured fluffy items such as towels
as they could attract the fluff.
• The laundry must be thoroughly spun
before tumble drying.
• Easy-ccare items, too, e.g. shirts,
should be briefly pre-spun before
drying (depending on crease resistance approx. 30 seconds or using
the special brief spin programme of
your washing machine).
• Knitted textiles (knitted underwear)
may shrink a little during drying.
Please do not overdry items of this
type. It is advisable to allow for
shrinkage when choosing the size of
new purchases.
• You can also put starched items into
your dryer. However, to achieve the
desired starched effect, choose the
programme “iron dry”. To remove any
starch residues, wipe out the internal
drum after drying with a moist cloth
and then rub it dry.
• To avoid a static charge when drying
is completed, use either a fabric softener when you are washing the
laundry or a fabric conditioner specifically for tumble dryers.
• Remove the laundry when the dryer
has finished drying.
• If individual items are still damp after
drying, set a brief post-drying time,
but at least 30 minutes. This will be
necessary particularly for multilayered
items (e.g. collars, pockets, etc.).
Make sure that no metal objects
are left in the laundry (e.g. hair
clips, safety pins, pins).
Button up pillowcases, close zip
fasteners, hooks and poppers. Tie any
belts or long tapes.
Remove persistent stains before
washing.
Rub particularly soiled areas with a
special detergent or detergent paste.
Treat curtains with special care. Remove
hooks or tie them up in a bag or net.

Care and cleaning
You must DISCONNECT the appliance
from the electricity supply, before you
can carry out any cleaning or
maintenance work.
External cleaning
The filter in the inner door must be
removed for cleaning.
Use only soap and water and then dry
thoroughly.
Important: do not use methylated spirit,
diluents or similar products..
Cleaning the door
Clean periodically the interior part of
the door to remove any fluff from the
seals around the filter. Accurate cleaning ensures correct drying.
Cleaning the filters
Your dryer will only function well if the filters are clean.
The filters collect all the fluff which
accumulates during drying and they
must therefore be cleaned at the end
of each programme, before removing
the laundry, with a damp cloth.
The light
is on to remind you this
operation.
Do not be alarmed by the amount of fluff. It
is not due to excessive wear caused by the
dryer.
All fabric loses fluff when drying but it
goes un-noticed in the air. In a tumble
dryer it simply collects in the filter.
After a while, a withish patina due to
detergent residue on laundry forms on
the filters. When this occurs, clean the
filters with warm water using a brush.
Remove the filter in the door opening
as per picture (it can be positioned with
the tooth facing to the left or to the
right).
125985630 gb.qxp

Page 18
18 electrolux care and cleaning
Do not use the appliance without filters.
Clean it with a brush and rinse it under the
shower if necessary.
Also clean the outside, removing all fluff.
Cleaning the condenser unit
Clean the condenser when light
on.
comes
The condenser is situated at the lower part
of the cabinet behind a small door. To open
the door, push the catch as per picture.
During the drying cycle or at the end, it is normal
for water to be present on the surface of the
condenser insertion.
Clean the rubber seal round the condenser
cabinet and in the inner part of the small
door with a damp cloth.
Important! Do not use pointed objects
or utensils to clean the spaces
between the plates, as this could damage the condenser and make it permeable.
Re-fit the condenser, turn the red stops
upwards and close the door.
To pull out the condenser, first turn the two
red stops downwards and then remove the
condenser unit holding it at the handle.
Do not use this appliance if the condenser
has not been fitted.
Emptying the water reservoir
Water extracted from the laundry condenses inside the machine and is collected in a
reservoir.
The reservoir must be emptied after each
drying cycle to ensure efficient operation
when the machine is next used. The pilot
light
reminds you this operation.
125985630 gb.qxp
2006-07-20

Page 19
care and cleaning electrolux 19
Proceed as follows:
• Open the small door at the lower part of
the cabinet
• Turn the yellow stop upwards
• Pull out the reservoir
• Open the small cover and let water flow
down
• Close the small cover and re-insert correctly the reservoir
• Push it until it clicks and turn the yellow
stop downwards to lock firmly it
Handy tip: The condensed water may be
used in a steam iron or to top up a battery,
etc. In this case it must be filtered (e.g.
through a coffee filter)).
Cleaning the air intake grille
Using a vacuum cleaner remove the fluff
from the air intake grille at the back of the
appliance.
• Close the small door and press the
START/PAUSE button again to allow the
programme to continue.
Cleaning the drum
When your laundry does not reach the desired
degree of dryness, in other words, when it
turns out either too dry or too damp, we
advise you to clean the inside of the drum with
a cloth soaked with vinegar.
The reservoir must be re-iinserted correctly.
If this is not done the pilot light
comes
on during next drying and the programme
stops, leaving the laundry damp. The
buzzer will sound for 1 minute.
After emptying and inserting the reservoir
the START-button
has to be depressed
again to allow the programme to continue.
This will eliminate the slight patina that has
formed in the drum (due to residues of
detergent and softeners used in the washing, and to the lime contained in the water),
which prevents the probes from detecting
the correct degree of dryness.

Positioning
It is recommended that, for your

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

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

which would interfere with the operation
of the appliance.

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
