CONDENSING TUMBLE DRYER

96A

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

GB

IMPORTANT

PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS THOROUGHLY BEFORE USING THIS APPLIANCE.

KEEP THEM IN A SAFE PLACE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

INSTALLATION

Position the tumble dryer so that the plug remains accessible after installation. Do not block the vent at the front or base of the dryer, as this will impair the working of the machine. This appliance must not be installed behind a lockable door, a sliding door or a door with hinges on the opposite side to that of the tumble dryer.

DRAINAGE OPTIONS

Your new tumble dryer is fitted with an internal drain pump, which gives you the option of being able to drain condensed water to its water bottle, or to your household waste pipe. Connecting your dryer to a household waste pipe will mean you will not need to periodically empty the water bottle. As supplied, the drier will drain the water to its bottle. If you wish to convert the dryer so that its water is diverted to a household waste pipe, follow the simple instructions below:-

1/ Pull the drain hose from the valve at the top of the unit.

2/ Fit the drain hose into your household waste pipe, ensuring a gap between the end of the hose and any water in the waste pipe.

To return your dryer back to taking the condensed water to the water bottle, simply fit the drain hose back to the valve at the top of your dryer.

If the drain hose is not long enough to reach your waste pipe, a drain extension kit can obtained from your retailer (part number

4213 089 8778).

The illustration shows the minimum space required by the dryer and the position of the waste-pipe within this space and behind the dryer. If a trap is fitted it must not obstruct the air inlet at the back of the dryer. The waste pipe can be positioned on either side of the dryer.

If the waste pipe is used by the dryer and a washing machine then its diameter must be large enough to contain both hoses - 1.5" bore (38mm) minimum.

FINAL INSTALLATION

Open the control panel door, remove the water bottle and then replace it in position ensuring that it is pushed in firmly. Push the filter into its operating position as shown in the diagram. If you wish to change the side on which your door opens, see the instructions on the back page.

Remove any dust by wiping the drum and door with a damp cloth. Any initial smell of burning will be caused by dust on the heater and will quickly disappear.

MOISTURE SENSING DRYER – FUNCTIONS

This sensing tumble dryer has a full moisture sensing system so you can choose the level of dryness required on your clothing/items. Alternatively you can select a timed drying cycle.

P1 – Extra dry: clothes are extra dry and can be put away

P2 – Cupboard dry: clothes are dry enough to be put away

P3 – Mid dry: depending upon fabric, clothes are generally dry enough to be put away

P4 – Extra iron dry: clothes are almost dry but can be easily ironed

P5 – Iron dry: clothes are slightly damp and ready to be ironed

P6 – Damp dry: clothes are damp and ready to be ironed

Programs 1-6 can be operated on the full heat, half heat or cool setting.

P7 – 30 minute fixed time drying program. This program can be operated on the full or half heat setting.

P8 – 30 minute fixed time ‘airing’ program; useful for freshening up clothing. This program operates without the heater, circulating air through the dryer at the ambient temperature.

P9 – Variable Time program – can be set from 10 min. to 180 min. drying time and can be operated on the full heat, half heat or cool setting. To return from a time program to the main menu, press the Reset button.

All programs can be used with the Delay Start feature. A maximum of 9 hours delay time is available in 1 hour increments.

The anti-crease function can be selected to minimize creasing by continuing to turn the drum periodically after the main drying cycle has finished.

PREPARATION

Check care labels inside the garments

.

CARE LABELS YOU MAY FIND ON YOUR FABRICS

Do not tumble dry woollen or wool mixture articles unless the article is labelled as being suitable .This should avoid shrinkage.

Place delicate articles e.g.tights, scarves, inside a pillowcase.

To avoid the need to iron easy-care polyester/cotton items it is .better to only dry small loads (i.e. half fill drum). It is better to dry small and large articles together.

Fabric softeners, or similar products, should be used as specified by the Fabric Softener instructions. Do not overload the dryer or dry large bulky items such as duvets or sleeping bags as it is important that the airflow through the dryer is not obstructed.

Items that have been soiled with substances such as cooking oil, acetone, alcohol, petrol, kerosene, spot removers, turpentine, waxes and wax removers should be washed in hot water with an extra amount of detergent before being dried in the tumble dryer.

Items such as foam rubber (latex foam), shower caps, waterproof textiles, rubber-backed articles and clothes or pillows fitted with foam rubber pads should not be dried in the tumble dryer.

OPERATION

Open the door.

Load clothes loosely into the drum. Load sheets first, starting with one corner.

Close the door.

Dry your hands.

Plug in the machine and press the Activate button. The Display Window will illuminate. If no further buttons are pressed, the display will go into sleep mode after 1 minute. To reactivate, press the Activate button.

The dryer will automatically remember the program and heat setting last used. To change the program use the (-) or (+) buttons on either side of the display window. Change the heat setting if required.

If P9 (variable time program) has been selected press the coloured Start button. A default of 120 minutes will appear in the display window. Use the (-) or (+) buttons to adjust the drying time for your laundry from 10 minutes up to 180 minutes. Holding the button down will rapidly change the time selected.

Select anti-crease function if required.

Press the coloured Start button to commence the drying cycle. The drum will begin rotating and will stop automatically when your clothes are dry or the timed cycle has finished. An audible alert will sound to indicate that the drying cycle has finished.

If you have selected the anti-crease function, the drum will continue to turn periodically for up to 8 hours or until the dryer is stopped by opening the dryer door or by disconnecting the dryer from the mains.

If the door is opened during a cycle the dryer will stop. To restart, close the door and press the Activate button then press the coloured Start button.

There is an automatic 12 minute cool down period at the end of each cycle, during which the heater is switched off and the green cool indicator is on. This helps to minimize creasing, and must always be used fully to avoid the risk of fire.

DELAY START

To use the Delay Start feature press the Delay Start button before pressing the Start button. The Delay

Start display will show 1 hour of delay time. Repeated pressing, or holding down, of the Delay Start button will increase the amount of delay time to a maximum of 9 hours. To cancel Delay Start, press the

Reset button. To start the delay period press Start. The delay time will start to count down in the Display

Window. To cancel Delay Start once the countdown has started, de-power the machine by opening the dryer door.

NEVER SWITCH THE DRYER OFF AND LEAVE A HOT LOAD IN THE DRUM DUE TO THE

RISK OF FIRE.

ALWAYS CLEAN THE FILTER AFTER EACH USE. Failure to do so could cause the safety cutout to operate.

- Pull the filter upwards and away from the appliance.

- Remove any threads or fluff by hand or with a soft brush.

- Slide the filter back.

- Wash the filter occasionally in detergent solution using a soft brush to remove small particles.

- If your filter becomes damaged, replace it to ensure no damage is caused to the dryer.

ALWAYS EMPTY THE WATER BOTTLE

- Open the control panel door, pull out and empty the bottle.

- Replace the bottle ensuring that it is pushed all the way in - if it is not, the dryer will turn but the heat will not operate.

- If the dryer is connected to a drain there is no need to empty the bottle but it must be correctly fitted to the machine.

THE CONDENSER

The condenser and ducting should be cleaned monthly or more frequently if the dryer is in constant use.

See “CLEANING THE CONDENSER” below.

NOTE: The condenser will discolour through use.

REMOVING THE CONDENSER

- Firmly pull the condenser out.

RE-INSTALLING THE CONDENSER

- Carefully push the condenser back into the machine, until it is pushed fully home and a “click” is heard.

IMPORTANT:

- Ensure all lint and fluff is removed from around the seals before closing or water may leak.

- The dryer may leak if the condenser is not correctly re-installed.

CLEANING THE CONDENSER

CAUTION: For maximum efficiency, the plates are made from very thin aluminum and are easily damaged. Do not try to poke anything between the plates or use a hard object or tool for cleaning. At all times, handle the condenser carefully and avoid crushing the plates.

–Remove the condenser (see above).

–Flush the fluff from between the plates under running water and carefully shake off excess water.

Whilst the condenser is removed, clean as much fluff as possible from inside the ducting by reaching a hand into the machine. In particular, keep the passage from the fan clear (on the right hand side of the condenser duct).

After cleaning, re-install the condenser (see above).

ANY PROBLEMS

If the clothes are not dry after normal drying time:

- Check that you used the correct heat setting.

- Check that the lint filter has been cleaned. A blocked filter will restrict the airflow.

- Check that the condenser unit and associated duct work are clean. If blocked, these will restrict the airflow.

- Check that your dryer is heating – the area below the door should feel warm to the touch after the first

10-15 minutes of its programme.

- Check that the bottle full warning light is off. If it is on then the bottle may be full or incorrectly fitted.

Failure to heat may indicate the safety cut-out has operated. To reset, simply press the red button at the rear of the machine. If it has operated then a sharp “click” will be heard.

This cut-out only operates if the airflow is severely restricted so make sure the filter is clean and that all other restrictions are removed before re-starting.

If the cut-out continues to operate after checking the above points, you should contact your service agent.

Check that the machine has the correct weight load in the drum before starting the appliance.

If your machine does not work check the following before calling a service engineer:-

- Check that there is a supply of electricity.

- Check that the Activate button has been pressed and that the Display is illuminated.

- Check that the door has been properly closed.

- Check that the water bottle has been withdrawn from, and replaced into the machine. The bottle full warning light should be off.

- Check the fuse in the moulded plug.
