INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
TUMBLE DRYER
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 side 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.
TUMBLE DRYER VENTING
Your tumble dryer may be supplied with a vent hose (If not, one is
available as an accessory).
A vent hose allows you to direct the warm, damp air expelled from the rear
of the dryer to an open door or window.
One end of the vent hose is fitted with an adaptor which can be pushed into
the exhaust outlet at the bottom left hand corner at the rear of the tumble
dryer (see fig.)The free end should be led to a suitable outlet. It may be
simply hung through an open window or a more permanent connection
made using the four holes in the adaptor flanges.
The best solution is to make a permanent connection through either a wall
or a window. This is particularly recommended for small, cool rooms and a
kit for this purpose is available as an accessory.
When using a vent hose, remember the following points:
The vent hose must be at least 10cm (4 ins) in diameter.
No more than three right-angled bends should be allowed when positioning the vent hose.
Do not distort or constrict the vent hose as this will reduce the airflow.
When drying, the vent hose must always be extended to an open door or window.
The vent hose must not be shared with other appliances, for example, a cooker hood outlet.
Note: Do not obstruct or add a mesh to the vent hose outlet during use and ensure that it cannot be
blocked or bent sharply which may obstruct the airflow.
It is recommended that the interior of the hose be periodically inspected and cleaned if necessary.
FINAL INSTALLATION
Push the filter into its operating position as shown in
the diagram. 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.
THE CONTROLS
A. THE TIMER Select the required drying time based on the recommendations on the control panel.
B. HEAT SWITCH Select the required heat setting based on the recommendations on the control
panel.
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 easycare 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.
Check that the timer is in the ‘0’position.
Plug in the machine.
Select correct heat position, (see programme chart on control panel for recommendations).
Turn the timer knob fully clockwise, then turn to the required time setting (see programme chart on
control panel for recommendations).
The drum will begin rotating. Reversing drum models will stop periodically to rotate in the reverse
direction for a short time.
Should the clothes become dry before the cycle has finished, or if an excessive programme time has been
selected, the drum will continue to rotate while the thermostat will automatically switch the heater off to
reduce the risk of over drying and save energy.
If the door is opened during a cycle the dryer will stop. To restart your machine, close the door .When
drying large items such as sheets, we suggest you periodically stop the dryer to redistribute the load.
To lengthen or shorten a timed programme, reset the timer knob.
There is an automatic 12 minute cool down period at the end of every cycle, during which the heater is
switched off. This helps to minimize creasing, and must always be used fully to avoid the risk of fire.
NEVER SWITCH THE DRYER OFF AND LEAVE A HOT LOAD IN THE DRUM. RISK OF
FIRE.
ALWAYS CLEAN THE FILTER AFTER EACH USE. Failure to do so could cause the safety cut-out
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.
ANY PROBLEMS
If the clothes are not dry after normal drying time:
–Check that you used the correct heat setting.
–Check that you have not set the timer within a cool down period.
–Check that the lint filter has been cleaned. A blocked filter will restrict the airflow.
–Check that your dryer is heating - below the door to the left side, should feel warm to the touch after the
first 10-15 minutes of its programme.
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, the air inlets
and outlets at the side and back are not blocked, and that all other restrictions are removed before restarting.
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 door has been properly closed and the machine is switched on.
- Check the fuse in the moulded plug.
