Where to install the tumble dryer
This appliance gently dries laundry by taking in cold, clean
and relatively dry air, heating it and passing it through the
fabric. To facilitate the drying process, damp air is expelled at
the rear, through a ventilation hose. When the dryer is in use,
there has to be adequate ventilation to avoid a back flow
of gases into the room from appliances burning other fuels,
including open fires.
Mobile ventilation system
When using the tumble dryer with the mobile ventilation
system, a ventilation hose must be connected. The hose
should be securely fastened to the ventilation hole at the
rear of the appliance (see “Description of the tumble dryer”).
We recommend the hose is connected to an outlet near
the tumble dryer, if possible. If it cannot be installed in a
permanent spot, the tumble dryer will still function perfectly
well if the ventilation hose is passed through a partiallyopened window.
! Make sure you do not point the ventilation hose towards
the air inlet, which is located on the rear of the appliance.
! The ventilation hose should not exceed a maximum length
of 2.4 metres; it should also be shaken frequently to remove
any fluff, dust or water deposits inside it. Make sure you do
not crush the hose.
Fixed ventilation system
We recommend the ventilation hose is connected to a
ventilation system for windows or doors, available from the
retailer which originally sold you the appliance or from your
local spare parts stockist.
Wall ventilation hole
1. Leave an opening in the wall
to the left of the tumble dryer
installation site.
2. Make the hose as short and
straight as possible, in order
to prevent any moisture from
condensing and leaking back
into the appliance.
3. The hole in the wall must
also be straight and pointing
downwards, so that the flow of air coming out is not
Areas A and B should be checked frequently, to prevent
the accumulation of fluff or debris, particularly if the tumble
dryer is used very often. The hose adaptor must be fitted
correctly, in order to prevent damp air from coming back into
the room.
Window ventilation hole
The ventilation hole should
be directly behind the dryer in
order to keep the hose as short
as possible.
! Make sure you do not
push the tumble dryer too
far backwards, as this could
lead to the ventilation hose
being crushed, bent or even
! There should be no cuts, kinks or “U”-shaped bends
in the hose, as these could impede ventilation or trap
Ventilation through an open window
The end of the hose must be
facing downwards, in order to
prevent the hot, damp air from
forming condensation in the
room or the tumble dryer.
! Make sure that the tumble dryer is adequately ventilated,
and that the end of the ventilation hose is not pointing
towards the air inlet pipe on the rear of the appliance.
! The ventilation hose must always be fitted to ensure
optimum performance.
! Make sure that the ventilation hose and the air inlet vents
are not obstructed or blocked.
! Do not let the tumble dryer recirculate exhaust air.
! Improper use of the tumble dryer may result in fire hazards.
! The air emitted by the tumble dryer must not be expelled in
the same duct as used for the fumes produced by different
appliances which burn gas or other fuels.
! Do not discharge the exhaust air into an extraction system
or any duct with an extractor fan. This will affect the way the
thermal controls operate and can result in a fire hazard.
Electrical connections
Before plugging the appliance into the socket, check the following:
• Make sure your hands are dry.
• The socket must have an earth connection.
• The socket must be able to withstand the
machine’s maximum power output as indicated on the rating plate (see Description of the
tumble dryer).
• The power supply voltage must fall within
the values indicated on the rating plate (see
Description of the tumble dryer).
• The socket must be compatible with the
dryer’s plug. Should this not be the case,
replace the plug or the socket.
! The dryer must not be installed outdoors,
even if the space is sheltered. It can be very
dangerous if exposed to rain or storms.
! Once installed, the dryer’s electrical wire
and plug must be within reach.
! The power cord must not be bent or
! If the plug being replaced is a non-rewirable
type, then the cut-off plug must be disposed
of safely. DO NOT leave it where it can be
inserted into a socket and create a shock
! The electric cord must be regularly
checked. If the supply cord is damaged, it
must be replaced by the manufacturer, its
service agent or similarly qualified persons in
order to avoid a hazard. (see Service). New or
longer power cords are supplied at an extra
charge by authorized dealers.
! The manufacturer denies any responsibility
should any of these rules not be followed.
! If in doubt about any of the above
consult a qualified electrician.
Before you start your dryer
Once the tumble dryer is installed, clean the inside of the
drum before operating it and remove any dirt accumulated
during transportation.
Levelling the tumble dryer
The tumble dryer should be installed level in order to
operate correctly.
After installing the tumble dryer in its permanent position,
make sure it is level; check its side-to-side levelling first,
followed by front-to-back.
If the tumble dryer is not perfectly level, use a wooden
block to support it while you adjust the two front feet, up
or down as necessary.
! This appliance has been designed and built according to
international safety standards. These warnings are given for
safety reasons and must be followed carefully.
General safety
•This appliance can be used by children
aged from 8 years and above and
persons with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities or lack of experience
and knowledge if they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning use of
the appliance in a safe way and understand
the hazards involved.
• This tumble dryer has been designed for
home, and not professional, use.
• Do not touch the appliance while barefoot
or with wet hands or feet.
• Unplug the machine by pulling on the plug,
not the cord.
•Children should be supervised to ensure
that they do not play with the dryer.
•Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be
made by children without supervision.
•Children of less than 3 years should be
kept away from the appliance unless
continuously supervised.
• The appliance must be installed correctly
and have proper ventilation. The air intake
vents behind the machine, the outlet
vents and the vent tube should never be
obstructed (see Installation).
• Never direct the vent tube outlet towards
the air intake at the back of the machine.
• Never allow the tumble dryer to recycle
exhaust air.
• Never use the dryer on carpeting where the
pile height would prevent air from entering
the dryer from the base.
• Check to see if the dryer is empty before
loading it.
The back of the dryer could become very
hot. Never touch it while in use.
• Do not use the dryer unless the filter, is
securely in place (see Maintenance).
• Do not overload the dryer (see Laundry for
maximum loads).
• Do not load items that are dripping wet.
● arefully check all instructions on clothing
labels (see Laundry).
• Do not tumble dry large, very bulky items.
• Do not tumble dry acrylic fibres at high
• Do not turn off the dryer when there are still
warm items inside.
• Clean the filter after each use (see
• Do not allow lint to collect around the dryer.
• Never climb on top of the dryer. It could
result in damage.
• Always follow electrical standards and
requirements (see Installation).
• Always buy original spare parts and
accessories (see Service).
To minimise the risk of fire in your tumble
dryer, the following should be observed:
• Tumble dry items only if they have been
washed with detergent and water, rinsed
and been through the spin cycle. It is a fire
hazard to dry items that HAVE NOT been
washed with water.
• ●Do not dry garments that have been treated
with chemical products.
• Do not tumble dry items that have
been spotted or soaked with vegetable
or cooking oils, this constitutes a fire
hazard. Oil-affected items can ignite
spontaneously,especially when exposed to
heat sources such as a tumble dryer. The
items become warm, causing an oxidisation
reaction with the oil, Oxidisation creates
heat. If the heat cannot escape, items can
become hot enough to catch fire. Piling,
stacking or storing oil-effected items can
prevent heat from escaping and so create
a fire hazard.If it is unavoidable that fabrics
containing vegetable or cooking oil or those
that have been contaminated with hair care
products be placed in a tumble dryer they
should first be washed with extra detergent
- this will reduce, but not eliminate the
hazard. They should not be removed from
the dryer and piled or stacked while hot.
• Do not tumble dry items that have
previously been cleaned in or washed in,
soaked in or soiled with petrol/gasoline,
dry cleaning solvents or other flammable
or explosive substances. Highly flammable
substances commonly used in domestic
environments including cooking oil,
acetone, denatured alcohol, kerosene,
spot removers, turpentine, waxes and wax
removers. Ensure these items have been
washed in hot water with an extra amount
of detergent before being dried in the
tumble dryer.
• ●Do not tumble dry items containing foam
rubber (also known as latex foam), or
similarly textured rubber like materials.
Foam rubber materials can, when heated,
produce fire by spontaneous combustion.
• ●Fabric softener or similar products should
not be used in a tumble dryer to eliminate
the effects of static electricity unless the
practice is specifically recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener product.
• Do not tumble dry undergarments that
contain metal reinforcements eg. bras
with metal reinforcing wires. Damage to
the tumble dryer can result if the metal
reinforcements come loose during drying.
• ●Do not tumble dry rubber, plastic articles
such as shower caps or babies waterproof
covers, polythene or paper.
• Do not tumble dry rubber backed articles,
clothes fitted with foam rubber pads,
pillows, galoshes and rubber coated tennis
• Remove all objects from pockets such as
lighters and matches.
WARNING: Never stop the dryer before the
end of the drying cycle unless all items are
quickly removed and spread out so that the
heat is dissipated.
Save energy and respect the environment
• Wring out all items to eliminate excess water before
tumble drying (if you use a washing machine first, select
a high spin cycle). Doing this will save time and energy
during drying.
• Always dry full loads - you save energy: single items or
small loads take longer to dry.
• Clean the filter after each use to contain energy
consumption costs (see Maintenance).

Care and maintenance
Disconnecting the power supply
! Disconnect the dryer when not in use or
during cleaning and maintenance operations.
Cleaning the filter after each cycle
The filter is a fundamental component of the
dryer: its function is to collect lint and fluff that
form during drying.
Clean the filter once drying is completed, by
rinsing it under running water or cleaning it
with a vacuum cleaner. Should the filter become clogged, the flow of air inside the dryer
will be seriously hampered: drying times becomes longer and more energy is consumed.
Moreover, the dryer may become damaged.
The filter is located
behind of the dryer seal
(see Picture).
Removing the filter:
1. Pull the filter’s plastic
handle upwards (see
2. Clean the fluff off
the filter and replace it
correctly. Ensure that
the filter is pushed fully
! Do not use the dryer unless
the filter has been replaced in
its holder.
Checking the drum after each cycle
Rotate the drum manually to remove smaller items (handkerchiefs) that could have been left inside the dryer.
Cleaning the drum
! Avoid using abrasives, steel wool or stainless steel cleaning
agents to clean the drum.
A coloured film may appear on the stainless steel drum
surface: it may be caused by a combination of water and/or
cleaning agents such as fabric conditioners. This coloured
film does not affect the dryer’s performance.
Cleaning the tumble dryer
• The external metal and plastic parts and the rubber parts
can be cleaned with the aid of a damp cloth.
• Periodically check the vent hose and all other parts of the
venting system and remove any accumulations of fluff and
! Do not use solvents or abrasives.
! Have the dryer checked regularly by authorised technical
personnel in order to ensure that the electrical and mechanical parts work safely (see Assistance).

Sorting laundry
Drying times
• Check the symbols on the care labels of the various garments to verify whether the garments can be safely tumble
• Sort laundry according to the type of fabric.
• Empty all pockets and check for loose buttons.
• Close zips and hooks and fasten belts and strings without
tightening them.
• Wring out garments to remove the maximum amount of
water possible.
• Amount of water retained by items after the spin cycle:
towels and delicate items retain a lot of water.
• Fabrics: items of the same fabric, but with different texture
and thickness may have different drying times.
• Amount of laundry: single items and small loads may take
longer to dry.
• Drying: if items are to be ironed, they can be removed
from the dryer while still slightly damp. Items that require
complete drying can be left longer.
• Heat setting.
• Temperature of the room: the lower the temperature of the
room, the longer it will take for the dryer to dry clothing.
• Bulk: certain bulky items require special care during the
drying process. We suggest removing these items and
replacing them in the dryer once they have been shaken
out: repeat this procedure several times during the course
of the drying cycle.
