Tips for drying and for economic use
of the dryer
• Drying is economically most effective if you dry
the recommended quantity of laundry per one
charge (see Program Chart).
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 tender.
Drying time is much shorter and consequently the
energy consumption lower if laundry is well spun
prior tumble dring (minimum 1000 spin RPM).
By selecting the most suitable drying program,
you will avoid over-drying and defficult ironing.
By cleaning the filter on regular basis drying time
is shorter and consumes less energy.
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning the filter
• 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.
Cleaning the
condensation dryer
Empty the container and occasionally
clean the water condensation device.
Emptying the water containere
Empty the container after every drying procedure:
pull the container out, pull out the draining nozzle,
pour out the water and replace the container.
Water from condenser tank is not
drinkable! If filtered it may be used for
Strictly switch the appliance off prior
cleaning (unplug the power cord from the
wall socket, or turn the selector jog to the
position “0”).
