INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS APPLIANCE IMPORTANT USER INFORMATION These notes are provided in the interest of safety. You must read them before installing or using the appliance. – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – This tumble dryer is intended for NORMAL DOMESTIC USE ONLY. Please note it is not recommended that the dryer be placed directly next to ovens or cookers, as the performance of the dryer may be affected. Any electrical work required to install the appliance should be carried out by a qualified person. It is important to clean the lint filter after each drying cycle and the condenser every three or four months or the restrictions to airflow will extend drying times and could cause the safety cut-out to trip. Do not stack the tumble dryer on top of any other appliances without the correct stacking kit. Under no circumstances should anything other than the recommended articles be placed in the tumble dryer. The tumble dryer should be serviced by an appointed service organisation and only genuine parts used. It is dangerous to alter or modify the product in any way other than fitting authorised accessories. We recommend that the appliance is unplugged each time after use. It should always be disconnected from the electricity supply if it is to be left unattended for long periods (i.e. weekends, holidays etc.) The rear of the dryer gets quite hot during use. Position the dryer so that the back is not accessible while in operation, but the sides have a space available to allow air flow. It is important to clean fluff from the window of the dryer and around the door seal after each drying cycle. Failure to do so could result in water leaking. DO NOT use a two-way adaptor, or extension lead. The dryer must be connected to its own socket. DO NOT block the air inlets at the front and back of your dryer. DO NOT allow fluff to accumulate around the tumble dryer. DO NOT exceed the recommended maximum load. DO NOT allow children to tamper with the controls and keep them away from the dryer when it is in operation. DO NOT place articles in the dryer if anything other than a water solution has been used in the cleaning process. DO NOT attempt to dry dripping wet articles or items containing foam rubber or rubberlike materials. DO NOT use the tumble dryer if you suspect that it is damaged in any way. Under no circumstances should you attempt to repair the appliance yourself. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause serious injury. Consult your local appointed service engineer and insist on genuine spare parts. THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED INSTALLATION Connecting the Drain Kit 1.

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 from the heater should disappear after the first period of heating. THE CONTROLS A. THE TIMER Select the required dryer time based on the recommendations on the control panel. B. HEAT SWITCH(ES) Select the required heat setting based on the recommendations on the control panel. B A PREPARATION Check care labels inside the garments. CARE LABELS YOU MAY FIND ON YOUR FABRICS Suitable for tumble drying Tumble dry using full heat Tumble dry using half heat Do not tumble dry Do not tumble dry woollen or wool mixture articles unless the article is labelled to be suitable due to a possibility of shrinkage. Roll dripping wet articles in a towel to remove excess water. 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. We suggest a fabric conditioner to be used to reduce static electricity. 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. Do not place items contaminated with inflammable substances in the dryer, such as petrol, cleaning solvents, cooking oil, fat, or hair lacquer. These can cause fires. For the same reason, do not dry rubber, foam rubber, plastic or paper. OPERATION Open the door. Load clothes loosely into the drum. Load sheets first, starting with one corner. Close the door. Dry your hands. Check that the timer is in the ‘0’ position. Plug in the machine. Select correct heat position (see programme chart on control panel for recommendations). Set the timer to the required time setting (see programme chart on control panel for recommendations). The drum will begin rotating. Reversing drum models will stop every few minutes to rotate in the reverse direction for a short time. Should the clothes become dry before the cycle has finished, or if an excessive programme time has been selected, the drum will continue to rotate while the thermostat will automatically switch the heater off to prevent over-drying and save energy. 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. NEVER SWITCH THE DRYER OFF AND LEAVE A HOT LOAD IN THE DRUM. When drying large items such as sheets, we suggest you periodically stop the dryer to redistribute the load. To stop the machine during the middle of the programme simply open the door; the drum will stop rotating automatically and restart when you close the door. To lengthen or shorten a timed programme, reset the timer knob. AFTER REMOVING THE DRIED CLOTHES: ALWAYS CLEAN THE FILTER. 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. THE CONDENSER The condenser and ducting should be cleaned 3 or 4 times a year or more frequently if the dryer is in constant use. See “CLEANING THE CONDENSER” opposite. NOTE: The condenser will discolour through use. REMOVING THE CONDENSER – – Slide the condenser grille catch to the left. 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. Ensure all lint and fluff is removed from around the grille seal before closing or water may leak. IMPORTANT: 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 aluminium 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 opposite). – 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 opposite). REVERSING THE DOOR OPENING Your dryer is supplied with a reversible door. To change the direction of opening proceed as follows for your type of door. Dryers fitted with hinge cover:- Open the door. Undo screw (A) remove switch strike (B) and replace screw. Undo screw (J) and remove buffer. Remove screws (C) and latch plate (D). Remove hinge cover screw (E). Close the door. Pull the hinge cover (F) forwards to remove it. Remove two outer screws (G). Remove door. Fit latch plate (D) with screws (C). Reverse door and fit to dryer in closed position. Refit screws (G) and hinge cover (F). Open the door. Fit screw (E) to secure hinge cover. Remove screw (H) at top of door and refit switch strike (B) as shown. Refit buffer (J). Dryers fitted without hinge cover:- Open the door. Undo screw (A) remove switch strike (B) and replace screw. Undo screw (J) and remove buffer. Remove screws (C) and latch plate (D). Remove hinge block screws (E). Remove door from hinge blocks. Remove hinge screws (F) and hinge (G) and refit to opposite side as shown. Refit latch plate (D) with screws (C). Remove screw (H) at top of door and refit switch strike (B) as shown. Refit buffer (J). Fit door to hinge blocks and secure with screws (E). ADDITIONAL INFORMATION 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. 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. – Check that the condenser has been pushed back into the machine. – Check the plug internal connections.
