•Use the dryer to dry only laundry washed with water. Do not attempt to dry
laundry, washed or cleaned with flammable detergents or solutions (gasoline,
trichloroethylene etc.), as it may cause an explosion.
•Do not let the children play with the appliance. Prevent your children or pets
entering the dryer drum.
•When discarding the old appliance, remove the power cord and break the
lock, so that the door can not be locked (safety precautions for children).
•Clean the filter after each drying. If the filter hasbeen removed, always
reinsert it before the nextdrying operation.
•After use always turn the appliance off (the program selection jog should be
in position “0”) and unplug the power cord.
•Leave all repairs to a qualified technician. Tampering with the appliance or
damage by an unqualified person may cause accidents or failures. Call your
nearest authorised servicecentre on 1300 652 100.
•Name plate with technical information about the appliance is located under

•The room must be well aired, surrounding air must not contain dusty
•Room where the appliance is located must be well aired to prevent back flow
of gasses, released by open fire gas appliances (fireplace).
•The warranty shall not apply to consumables (bulbs), minor discoloration or

which does not affect appliance functionality, and aesthetical deficiencies
which do not affect appliance functionality or safety.
To minimize the risk of fire in a tumble dryer, the following should be
•Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable or cooking oil constitute
a fire hazard and should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to
heat sources such as in a tumble dryer. The items become warm, causing
an oxidation reaction in the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat cannot
escape, the items can become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or
storing oilaffected items can prevent heat from escaping and so create a fire
If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or have
been contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer they
should first be washed in hot water with extra detergent - this will reduce, but
not eliminate, the hazard. The ‘cool down’ cycle of tumble dryers should be
used to reduce the temperature of the items. They should not be removed
from the tumble dryer or piled or stacked while hot.
•Items that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted
with petrol/gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive
substances should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Highly flammable substances commonly used in domestic environments
include acetone, denatured alcohol, petrol/gasoline, kerosene, spot removers
(some brands), turpentine, waxes and wax removers.
•Items containing foam rubber (also known as latex foam) or similarly textured
rubber. like materials should not be dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting.
Foam rubber materials can, when heated, produce fire by spontaneous
•Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used in a tumble dryer
to eliminate the effects of static electricity unless this practice is specifically
recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
•Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be placed in a
tumble dryer.
Damage to the tumble dryer can result if metal reinforcements come loose
during drying. When available a drying rack could be used for such items.
•Plastic articles such as shower caps or babies’ waterproof napkin covers
should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
•Rubber-backed articles, clothes fitted with foam rubber pads, pillows,
galoshes and rubber-coated tennis shoes should not be placed in a tumble
The belt can be replaced by a servicing
engineer only, who incorporates an original
spare part with the marking OPTIBELT EPH

Tips for drying and for the economic
use of the dryer
•The most economical drying is if the quantity
of laundry for drying in a single lot corresponds
to the recommended load for particular type of
laundry (see Page 19 program chart).
•Do not dry too much laundry at the same time, as
the laundry will be creased and unevenly dried
(max 6.5 kg of dry, non-delicate laundry).
•Do not dry the laundry made of especially
sensitive fibers (wool, silk), which may shrink or
lose shape.
•It is not necessary to use a fabric conditioner
when washing the laundry, since drying makes it
soft and fluffy.
•If the laundry is thoroughly spun before drying,
drying time is shorter and consumes less power
(1000 rpm).
•By selecting the most suitable drying program,
you will avoid over-drying and difficult ironing.
•By cleaning the filter on regular basis drying time
is shorter and consumes less energy.
Cleaning and maintenance
Strictly switch the appliance off prior
cleaning (unplug the power cord from the
wall socket, or turn the selector jog to the
position “0”).
•Clean the casing and drum interior with soft cloth
Cleaning the filter
and mild detergent.
•After every drying clean the filter, located in the
inner part of the door.
•Lift the filter lid (Fig.).
•Pull your fingers over the filter to remove fibers
and threads lining. Replace the filter cover.
•If necessary, also clean the filter housing and door
Cleaning of the filter on the lower side of the
door opening (only with some models)
Before removing clothes from the drum, clean the
filter on the lower side of the door opening with a
damp cloth or wet hand.
If the filter is clogged in such way that it needs
washing, pull it out from its bed (Fig.), wash it under
hot water and dry. Be sure that the replaced filter
snaps safely to its position, and only then close the
filter lid.
If the filter is not regularly cleaned, the
airflow is obstructed, which causes longer
drying time and danger of overheating.
•Periodically clean (vacuum) the interior of air
evacuation opening and evacuation tube.
Cleaning of evacuation
Replacing the bulb
(only with some models)
•Before replacing the bulb disconnect the power
cord from the wall socket.
•Open the door.
•Unscrew the cover of the bulb (inside the door
•Replace the bulb. Maximum bulb power is 10W.
Bulb must be of the same type and the maximum
power as indicated on the bulb and the bulb
•Replace the bulb cover, fastening it firmly. Be
careful to perfectly fit the cover over the sealing
gasket, or moisture could enter the inside and
cause short circuit.
Interferences from the ambient (for example
electrical wiring) could induce signalization of
different faults. In such cases:
- switch the appliance off, and wait for a few
- switch the appliance back on and repeat the
drying program.
If the fault repeats, call authorized service shop.

• If the laundry loaded in the drum has not been spun
enough or if appropriate drying time has been set.
Unevenly dried
• If the amount of laundry to be dried is not too big.
• If there are only large pieces of laundry (large and
small pieces should be dried together).
• If different fabrics are dried together (group the
laundry according to the type of fabrics).
The machine signals errors or failures in operation by flashing signal LED's.
Record number of flashes representing the failure, shut the machine off and
call nearest authorised service centre on 1300 652 100.
If a failure occurs due to incorrect installation or inappropriate use of the
appliance, the warranty is void, and the repair bill shall be settled by the user.
