Instruction booklet
IS 41 V
The dryer must never be installed behind a
lockable door, a sliding door or a door with a hinge
on the opposite side to that of the dryer door.
The dyer should be placed where air can freely
circulate around it preferably near a window
that can be opened to reduce the possibility of
condensation occurring while the dryer is in use.
If the dryer is enclosed or fitted under a work
surface a gap of at least 50 mm (2”) must be
allowed above the top for the full width of the dryer
and at least 25 mm (1”) either side. This allows
air to enter into the rear air inlet. The dryer must
never be run in a cupboard with a closed door.
This symbol reminds you to read this booklet.
When the dryer is in use there has to be adequate
ventilation to avoid the back flow of gases into
the room from appliances burning other fuels,
including open fires.
The vent tube should not exceed 2.4 metres in length.
The tube should be kept clear of the air intake vent
and kinks or ‘U’ bends must be avoided as these
will obstruct the tube and trap condensation.
The socket must be grounded. The power supply cord should be checked periodically and, if required,
replaced by a cord specially prepared for this dryer.
You must clean the fluff filter after EVERY drying cycle.
To remove the filter
Step 1 - Open the door of your dryer, remove the filer.
Step 2 - Clean any fluff deposits from the filter mesh, and refit the filter.
Step 3 - Make sure the filter is pushed fully home - NEVER run the dryer
without the filter in position.
Failure to clean the filter after EVERY drying cycle will affect the drying
performance of your machine.
Do not load more than maximum capacity.
These numbers refer to dry weight:
Natural fibres: 4kg max
Synthetic fibre: 2kg max
Look at the labels on your garments, especially when tumble drying
for the first time. The following symbols are the most common:
May be tumble dried
Do NOT tumble dry
Tumble dry at high heat setting
Tumble dry at low heat setting
1. Articles that contain rubber or rubber-like materials or plastic
film, any flammable articles or objects that contain flammable
2. Glass fibres.
3. Items which have been dry cleaned.
4. Large bulky items (quilts, sleeping bags, etc). These expand
when drying and prevent airflow through the dryer.
! This appliance has been designed and built
according to international safety standards. These
warnings are given for safety reasons and must
be followed carefully.
•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.
•After using the dryer, turn it off and unplug it.
Keep the door closed to make sure that children
do not use it as a toy.
•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 at the front of the
dryer 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.
•Carefully check all instructions on clothing
labels (see Laundry).
•Do not tumble dry large, very bulky items.
•Do not tumble dry acrylic fibres at high temperatures.
•Complete each programme with its cool tumble
•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
•Always follow electrical standards and
requirements. (see Installation).
•Always buy original spare parts and accessories
(see Service).
•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 oileffected 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.
The cool tumble phase should be used to
reduce the temperature of the items. 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
•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 shoes.
•Remove all objects from pockets, especially
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.
