INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
TUMBLE DRYERS
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 front 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.
DRAINAGE OPTIONS
Your new tumble dryer is fitted with an internal drain pump, which gives you the option of being able to
drain condensed water to its water bottle, or to your household waste pipe. Connecting your dryer to a
household waste pipe will mean you will not need to periodically empty the water bottle. As supplied, the
drier will drain the water to its bottle. If you wish to convert the dryer so that its water is diverted to a
household waste pipe, follow the simple instructions below:1/ Pull the drain hose from the valve at the top of the unit.
2/ Fit the drain hose into your household waste pipe, ensuring a gap between the end of the hose and any
water in the waste pipe.
To return your drier back to taking the condensed water to the water
bottle, simply fit the drain hose back to the valve at the top of your
drier.
If the drain hose is not long enough to reach your waste pipe, a
drain extension kit can obtained from your retailer (part number
4213 089 8778).
The illustration shows the minimum space required by the dryer and the
position of the waste-pipe within this space and behind the dryer. If a trap
is fitted it must not obstruct the air inlet at the back of the dryer. The
waste pipe can be positioned on either side of the dryer.
If the waste pipe is used by the dryer and a washing machine then its
diameter must be large enough to contain both hoses - 1.5" bore (38mm)
minimum.
FINAL INSTALLATION
Push the filter into its operating position as shown in
the diagram. If you wish to change the side on which
your door opens, see the instructions on the back
page. 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. PROGRAMME SELECTOR: Turn the programme selector to the desired level of dryness. You
have various degrees of dryness as well as a timed option and an airing cycle.
B.START BUTTON: To start the drying cycle.
C.HI/LO HEAT BUTTON: High heat for cotton and linen fabrics and low heat for synthetic or delicate
fabrics.
D.BOTTLE FULL LIGHT: This will light up and the machine will stop if the water bottle is full or if it
has not been pushed fully back into the correct position.
E.THE WATERBOTTLE: (Behind the pull-down door): Must be emptied after every cycle (except
when a drain hose kit is fitted).
F.ANTI-CREASE ACTIVE NEON (If fitted): When lit constantly, the neon indicates that the drying
cycle is completed and clothes can be removed. To reduce creasing of clothes, anti-crease will
automatically start once the drying cycle is complete.
Program 1 – Extra dry: clothes are dry enough to be put away
Program 2 – Cupboard dry: clothes are dry enough to be put away
Program 3 – Mid dry: depending upon fabric, clothes are generally dry enough to be put away
Program 4 – Extra iron dry: clothes are almost dry but can be easily ironed
Program 5 – Iron dry: clothes are slightly damp and ready to be ironed
Program 6 – Damp dry: clothes are damp and ready to be ironed
Program 7 – 30 minute timed drying program
Program 8 – 30 minute timed ‘airing’ program; useful for freshening up clothing.
Programs 1-7 can be operated on either full heat or half heat setting and have a 12 minute cool-down
period at the end of the cycle
Program 8 operates without the heater (regardless of the heat switch setting), circulating air through the
dryer at the ambient temperature.
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.
Plug in the machine.
Select the programme and the heat setting required.
Press the start button.
The drum will initially rotate in an anticlockwise direction.
The drum will now begin to rotate and will stop automatically when your clothes are dry. The drum will
stop and turn in the other direction for a short while every few minutes.
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 minimise creasing.
At the end of the drying cycle the drum will rotate periodically until you open the door or disconnect from
the mains to stop it. This helps to minimise creasing.
If the door is opened during a cycle the dryer will stop. If a load is checked mid cycle restart the appliance
by, closing the door and pressing the start button. When drying large items such as sheets, we suggest you
periodically stop the dryer to redistribute the load.
NEVER SWITCH THE DRYER OFF AND LEAVE A HOT LOAD IN THE DRUM. RISK OF
FIRE.
AFTER REMOVING THE DRIED CLOTHES
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.
ALWAYS EMPTY THE WATER BOTTLE
- Open the door, pull out and empty the bottle.
- Replace the bottle ensuring that it is pushed all the way in - if it is not, the
dryer will not operate.
- If the dryer is connected to a drain there is no need to empty the bottle but it
must be correctly fitted to the machine.
THE CONDENSER
The condenser and ducting should be cleaned monthly or more frequently if the dryer is in constant use.
See “CLEANING THE CONDENSER” below.
NOTE: The condenser will discolour through use.
REMOVING THE CONDENSER
–Firmly pull the condenser out.
RE-INSTALLING THE CONDENSER
–Carefully push the condenser back into the machine, until it is pushed fully home and a “click” is heard.
IMPORTANT:
–Ensure all lint and fluff is removed from around the grille seal before closing or water may leak.
- The dryer may leak if the condenser is not correctly re-installed
CLEANING THE CONDENSER
CAUTION: For maximum efficiency, the plates are made from very thin aluminum and are easily
damaged. Do not try to poke anything between the plates or use a hard object or tool for cleaning. At all
times, handle the condenser carefully and avoid crushing the plates.
–Remove the condenser (see above).
–Flush the fluff from between the plates under running water and carefully shake off excess water.
Whilst the condenser is removed, clean as much fluff as
possible from inside the ducting by reaching a hand into the
machine. In particular, keep the passage from the fan clear (on
the right hand side of the condenser duct).
After cleaning, re-install the condenser (see above).
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 the condenser unit and associated duct work are clean. If blocked, these 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 and that all
other restrictions are removed before re-starting.
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 stating 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 (start button pressed, if
fitted).
- Check that the water bottle has been withdrawn from, and–replaced into the machine. The bottle full
warning light should be off.
- Check the fuse in the moulded plug.
