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-c
care 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.

Adjusting the level
of conductivity
Implementation
Water contains, a variable quantity of limestone and mineral salts
of which quantities vary according to geographical locations thus
varying its conductivity values.
Relevant variations of the conductivity of the water compared to
those prefixed by the factory could slightly influence the residual
humidity of the laundry at the end of the cycle. Your dryer allows
you to regulate the sensitivity of the drying sensor based on
conductivity values of the water by using the following procedure.
To access adjustment mode:
1. Turn the programme selector dial to switch on the appliance.
2. In selection mode,press simultaneously the buttons

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 of this
operation.
P1111
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).

Do not use the appliance without filters.
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 white vinegar.
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.

Installation
The appliance must not be installed behind a
lockable door, a sliding door a door with a
hinge on the opposite side to that of the
appliance.
It is dangerous to alter the specifications or
attempt to modify this product in any way.
Care must be taken to ensure that the
appliance does not stand on the electrical
supply cable.
Any electrical work required to install this
appliance should be carried out by a qualified electrician or competent person.
Important:
The appliance must not bulit-in.
Unpacking
All transit bolts and packing must be
removed before using the appliance.
Slide out the polythene bag with the
polystyrene stuffing before using the
appliance Pull off adhesive strips from
inside machine on top of drum.
Should the appliance be moved, it must
be transported vertically.
Positioning
It is recommended that, for your
convenience, the machine is positioned
close to your washing machine. Whilst
drying, the tumble dryer will expel a
certain amount of warm, very moist air,
and this should be removed from the
room as quickly as possible to prevent
condensation. In an extremely well
ventilated room or close to an open
window, this may occur naturally.
However, in general, it is better to carry
the dryer's exhaust outside via the 100
mm diameter flexible hose supplied
with the appliance; ending either
temporarily at an open window, or
permanently at a fixed ventilation grille,
fitted to an exterior wall or window.
The tumble dryer must be installed in a
clean place, where dirt does not build up.
Make sure there are no obstructing
items or material near the air-intake
louvres provided at the back (e.g. paper,
rags etc.). 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.
P0046
125986421_gb.qxp

installation electrolux 25
The feet must never be removed.
Do not restrict the floor clearance
through deep pile carpets, strips of
wood or similar. This might cause heat
build-up which would interfere with the
operation of the appliance.
Important
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.
Fitting the vent hose
A special stacking kit is available through
your local Service Force Centre. To
simplify the installation, there is a choice
of vent outlets: one at the back, the
others in the left and right-hand side.
Connect the hose to whichever is the
more convenient by pulling the ring nut
(A) from the vent outlet at the back,
screwing it on to the hose and pushing it
firmly back into place. The unused vents
should now be sealed with the special
snap covers provided.
room temperature low, the moisture
might condense inside the hose. This
is an unavoidable natural phenomenon.
To prevent this water from Iying in the
hose or flowing back into the tumble
dryer, it is advisable to drill a small hole
(dia. 3 mm) in the lowest point of the
hose and to place a small container
below it.(See picture, point B).
P1056
Once connected to the dryer, run the
vent hose to the desired outlet point,
ensuring that the run’s overall length is
less than 2 m, and that it contains no
more than two bends. As to the outlet
itself, if you have decided on a fixed
wall/window grille, a good local
builder’s merchant should be able to
supply you with the necessary fittings
and installation advice.
It is important not to connect the
vent hose to, for example, a cooker
hood, or a chimney or flue pipe
designed to carry the exhaust from
a fuel burning appliance.

Note that to avoid condensation
problems, it is essential that the dryer
be fitted with the flexible hose to carry
its “exhaust” at least beyond the
kitchen units; preferable outside the
kitchen.
In order to prevent the appliance from
overheating, it is important that the
steam exhaust is unobstructed.
Therefore, in case of a permanent hose
fitted to an exterior wall or ceiling, it
must be ensured an exhaust capacity
of at least 150 m3/h.
If the dryer is fitted next to kitchen
units, make sure that the vent hose is
not squashed. If the hose is partially
squashed, drying efficiency will be
reduced, resulting in longer drying
times and higher energy consumption.
If the hose is completely squashed, the
safety cut-outs with which the machine
is fitted may operate.
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.
Stacking kit
A special stacking kit is available through
your dealer, to enable the mounting of
the dryer on top of a front loading
washing machine with cover’s depth
between 48 and 60 cm.
Read carefully the instructions supplied
with the kit.
P1107
