User Information
The room must be adequately ventilated to avoid the
backflow of gases into the room from appliances burning
gas or any other fuels. This includes open fires.
It is important to clean the lint filter after each drying cycle.
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.
Fabric softeners, or similar products, should be used as
specified by the fabric softener instructions.
Remove all objects from pockets such as lighters and
We recommend that the appliance is switched off each time
after use. It should be disconnected from the electricity
supply if it is to be unattended for long periods, ( i.e.
weekends or holiday etc).
Do not • Overload the dryer.
• Dry articles singly as they tend to roll up and so increase
drying time.
• Dry anything other than the recommended articles be
placed in the tumble dryer. These can cause fires.
• Place articles which have been in contact with dry
cleaning fluid, petrol, cooking oil, fat, hair lacquer or other
flammable substances in the tumble dryer.
• Attempt to dry dripping wet articles.
• Dry unwashed items in the tumble dryer.
• Dry wool or wool mixture articles unless the article is
labelled as suitable. This should avoid shrinkage.
• Dry items such as foam rubber (latex foam), shower caps,
waterproof textiles, rubber backed articles and clothes or
pillows fitted with foam rubber pads.
• Exhaust air must not be discharged into a flue which is
used for exhausting fumes from appliances burning gas or
other fuels.
• Allow the vent hose (where applicable) or filter to become
• Allow lint to accumulate around the tumble dryer.
• Use a two-way or multi-way adapter, or extension lead.
The dryer must be connected to its own individual socket.
• Use the tumble dryer if you suspect that it is damaged in
Never switch the dryer off and leave a hot load in the
drum – risk of fire.
WARNING: Never stop a tumble dryer before the end of
a drying cycle unless all items are quickly removed and
spread out so the heat is dissipated.

Programmes 1-7 can be operated on either full heat or half heat
setting and include a 12 minute cool-down period at the end of the
cycle, followed by the automatic anti-crease cycle.

30 minute timed ‘airing’ programme which is useful for freshening up clothing.
To Run a Programme
• Sort out the clothes into groups of similar fabrics and colours.
Check the care label inside the garment. We suggest that a fabric
conditioner be used to reduce static electricity. Delicate articles e.g.
tights should be placed inside a pillowcase. It is better to dry small
and large articles together.
• Open the door.
• Load clothes loosely into the drum.
• Load sheets first starting with one corner.
• Close the door.
• Dry your hands.
• Switch on the machine.
• Select correct heat position.
• Set the programme to the required dryness setting.
• Press the start button.
The standard cotton programme is suitable to dry normal wet
cotton laundry. It is the most efficient programme in terms of energy
consumption for drying wet cotton laundry.
Your appliance is a reversing, small door opening. A full load will
typically take 135 minutes and will use approximately 4.39kWh of
electricity. A half load will typically take 76 minutes and will use
approximately 2.38 kWh of electricity.
The power consumption of the off-mode and the left-on mode is zero.
• The drum will begin to turn, and will stop when the clothes are
dry. The drum will rotate clockwise and anticlockwise during the
programme alternately to reduce creasing.
• There is an automatic 12 minute cool down period at the end of the
cycle, during which the heater is switched off, to minimise creasing
and prevent damage to the clothing.
• After each programme, the dryer will run an anti-crease programme,
rotating the drum briefly every six minutes until the dryer is stopped
or the door is opened.
• Once the clothes are removed, clean the filter.
• Switch off the electricity supply.
Use and Controls
Should the clothes dry before the cycle has finished the thermostat
will automatically switch off the heater to prevent over drying and
save energy although the drum will still rotate.
When drying large items such as sheets, we suggest you stop the
dryer to redistribute the load.
To stop the machine during the middle of a programme, open the
door: the drum will stop rotating automatically and reset when you
close the door.
To restart the programme, press activate and then the start button.
The final part of the drying cycle occurs without heat (cool down cycle)
to ensure that the items will not be damaged.

Care and Maintenance
Cleaning The Filter
The filter is found, by opening the door
(fig.2.) and must always be in position
when drying items in the appliance.
To allow the dryer to operate efficiently
the filter should be cleaned after each
drying cycle.
Do not be alarmed by the amount of
lint deposited on the mesh. It is not due
to excessive wear caused by the dryer
but more an indication of its efficient
operation. All fabric loses lint when
drying but it goes unnoticed into the air.
In a tumble dryer it simply collects in the
After removing the dried clothes, clean
the filter as follows:
• Pull the filter upwards.
•Remove any threads or lint by hand or
with a soft brush.
• Slide the filter back.
•Wash the filter occasionally in
detergent solution and remove small
particles with a soft brush.
fig. 2
If the clothes are not dry after normal drying time:
- Check that the filter is clean.
- Check that you used the correct heat setting.
- Check that the vent hose is not blocked (sometimes a strong wind
may cause a back pressure).
- Check that you have not set the timer within a cool down period.
If your appliance does not work, check the following points before
contacting CDA Customer Care
• Check that there is power to the appliance.
• Check that the machine is switched on and the door properly
• This appliance has a resettable cut-out. Check this has not
operated. Press the red button on the right hand side at the
back of your dryer. If the cut-out has operated 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 restarting.
• Check the fuse in the moulded plug.

attachment provided.
The position of the hole (100mm
diameter) for the vent directly behind
the tumble dryer is shown in fig.3.
If the vent through the wall is to be
positioned anywhere other than behind
the dryer, the vent hose should be
positioned at floor level and through an
adjacent side panel to an appropriate
