Installation
10 mm
• Install the dryer far
from gas ranges, stoves,
radiators or hobs, as
flames may damage it.
If the dryer is installed
below a worktop, en15 mm
15 mm
sure there are 10 mm
between the upper panel of the dryer and any
objects above it, and 15
mm between the sides of the machine and
the walls or furniture units adjacent to it. This
ensures adequate air circulation.
The appliance must be installed with the rear
surface placed against a wall.
Ventilation
• The room must be adequately ventilated while the dryer is
running. Make sure that the dryer is installed in a room free
of humidity and with adequate air circulation. The flow of air
around the dryer is essential to allow water to condense during drying; the dryer will not function properly if it is placed
in an enclosed space or inside a cabinet.
! Some condensation may form if the dryer is used in a small
or cold room.
! We do not recommend that the dryer is
installed in a cupboard but 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.
Water drain
If your dryer is installed next to a drain the water can be
plumbed into this drain. This does away with the need to
empty the water container. If the dryer is stacked onto or
installed next to a washing machine it can share the same
drain. The height of the drain must be less than 3’ (1 m) from
the bottom of the dryer.
Remove existing hose from position shown in picture A and fit
a suitable length of hose and connect as shown in picture B.
! Make sure that the hose is not squashed or kinked
when the dryer is in its final location.

Electrical connections
Before plugging the appliance into the socket,
check the following:
• Make sure your hands are dry.
• The socket must have an earth connection.
• The socket must be able to withstand the
machine’s maximum power output as indicated on the rating plate (see Description
of the tumble dryer)
• The power supply voltage must fall within
the values indicated on the data plate (see
Description of the tumble dryer).
• The socket must be compatible with the
dryer’s plug. Should this not be the case,
replace the plug or the socket.
! DO NOT USE EXTENSION CORDS.
(MAIUSCOLO)
! The dryer must not be installed outdoors,
even if the space is sheltered. It can be very
dangerous if exposed to rain or storms.
! Once installed, the dryer’s electrical wire
and plug must be within reach.
! The power cord must not be bent or
squashed.
! If the plug being replaced is a non-rewirable
type, then the cut-off plug must be disposed of
safely. DO NOT leave it where it can be inserted
into a socket and create a shock hazard.
! The power must be regularly checked. If the
supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard. (see Assistance). New or longer electric
cords are supplied by authorised dealers at a
supplementary cost.
! The manufacturer denies any
responsibility should any of these rules
not be followed.
! If in doubt about any of the above
consult a qualified electrician.
Preliminary information
Once the tumble dryer is installed, clean the inside of the
drum before operating it and remove any dirt accumulated
during transportation.

Warnings
GB
! This appliance has been designed and built
according to international safety standards.
These warnings are given for safety reasons
and must be followed carefully.
General safety
• 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 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,
watercontainer and condenser are 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
4
temperatures.
• Do not turn off the dryer when there are still
warm items inside.
• Clean the filter after each use (see
Maintenance).
• Empty the water container after each use (see
Maintenance).
•● Clean the condenser unit at regular intervals (see
Maintenance).
•● Do not allow lint to collect around the dryer.
• Never climb on top of the dryer. It could
result in damage.
• Always follow electrical standards and
requirements (see Installation).
• Always buy original spare parts and
accessories (see Service).
To minimise the risk of fire in
your tumble dryer, the following
should be observed:
• 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 oil-effected 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. 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 combustion.
●• 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 such as
lighters and matches.
GB
! 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.
Save energy and respect the
environment
• Wring out all items to eliminate excess water
before tumble drying (if you use a washing
machine first, select a high spin cycle). Doing
this will save time and energy during drying.
• Always dry full loads - you save energy: single
items or small loads take longer to dry.
• Clean the filter after each use to contain energy
consumption costs (see Maintenance).

Care and maintenance
GB
Disconnecting the power supply
! Disconnect the dryer when not in use or
during cleaning and maintenance operations.
Cleaning the filter after each
cycle
The filter is a fundamental component of the
dryer: its function is to collect lint and fluff that
form during drying.
Clean the filter once
drying is completed,
by rinsing it under running water or cleaning it
with a vacuum cleaner.
Should the filter become
clogged, the flow of air
inside the dryer will be
seriously hampered: drying times becomes longer and more energy is consumed. Moreover,
the dryer may become
damaged.
The filter is located in
front of the dryer seal
(see Picture).
Removing the filter:
1. Pull the filter’s plastic
handle upwards (see
Picture).
2. Clean the fluff off the filter and replace it
correctly. Ensure that the filter is pushed fully
home.
! Do not use the dryer unless the filter has
been replaced in its holder.
Checking the drum after each cycle
Rotate the drum manually to remove smaller items (handkerchiefs) that could have been left inside the dryer.
Cleaning the drum
! Avoid using abrasives, steel wool or stainless steel cleaning
agents to clean the drum. A coloured film may appear on the
stainless steel drum surface: it may be caused by a combination of water and/or cleaning agents such as wash-softeners.
This coloured film does not affect the dryer’s performance.
6
Emptying the water container after
each cycle
2
Remove the water container and
empty it into a sink or other
suitable drain outlet, then
replace it correctly.
Always check the water container and empty it before starting
a new drying cycle.
-Failure to empty the water container may cause
the following:
- The dryer stops heating (thus the load may still be
damp at the end of the drying cycle).
- The “Empty water container” LED activates to
show that the water container is full.
Priming the Water Collection System
When your dryer is new, the Water Container will
not collect Water until the system is primed, this
will take 1 or 2 drying cycles. Once primed it will
collect Water during every cycle.
Cleaning the condenser unit.
•
Remove the condenser (see Picture
below) unit regularly (monthly) and clean off
any fluff deposits from the plates by rinsing it
with cold water running on the rear end of the
condenser.
Removing the condenser:
1.
Disconnect the dryer from the power
supply and open the
door.
2.
Open the condenser cover (see Picture
below), unlock the three
catches by turning them
90° anti-clockwise, then
pull on the grip to remove the condenser.
3.
Clean the surface
of the seals and replace
the unit with the arrows
pointing upwards, while
making sure that the
catches are securely
fixed.
Cleaning the tumble dryer
• The external metal, plastic and rubber parts can be cleaned with a damp cloth.
• Clean the front air intake grille regularly (every 6 months)
with a vacuum cleaner to remove any lint, fluff or dust
deposits. Furthermore, remove any lint deposits from the
front part of the condenser and from the filter area, using a
vacuum cleaner every so often.
! Do not use solvents or abrasives.
! Have the dryer checked regularly by authorised technical
personnel in order to ensure that the electrical and mechanical parts work safely (see Assistance).
Quick Tips
!Remember to clean your filter and Condenser unit after each load.
! Remember to empty your water container after each load.
! Doing this will keep your machine working at its BEST!

How to carry out
a drying cycle
GB
Starting and selecting a programme
1. Plug the dryer into the power supply socket.
2. Sort your laundry according to fabric type (see Laundry).
3. Open the door, ensure that the filter is clean and securely placed and that the water container is empty and correctly located (see
Care and maintenance).
4. Load the machine, making sure that no piece of laundry gets between the door and the relative seal. Close the door.
5. Turn on the dryer by moving the knob to a position other than OFF.
6. After consulting the programme chart and the indications for each type of fabric (see Laundry), turn the Programme selection
knob towards the programme corresponding to the type of laundry to be dried (see Programmes and options).
! Warning: If the position of the programme selection knob changes after pressing the START/PAUSE button, the selected programme will NOT be modified. To modify the programme, press the START/PAUSE button to put the programme in pause mode (the
indicator light flashes orange), then select a new programme and the relative options. Press the START/PAUSE button to start the
new programme.
7. If necessary, set the time of the delayed start and any other options (see Programmes and options).
8. Press the START/PAUSE button to start the drying cycle.
Laundry can be checked while the drying programme runs and any garments already dry can be removed, while drying continues
for the remaining items. After closing the door, press the START/PAUSE button to resume machine operation.
9. The final COOL TUMBLE phase (i.e. the fabrics are cooled) activates during the last few minutes of the drying programme; always
allow this phase to terminate.
10. When the END indicator light turns on, the programme has ended. The buzzer will beep 3 times to let you know that your
programme is complete. Open the door, remove the laundry then clean the filter and replace it. Empty the water container and put it
back in its slot (see Care and maintenance).
If the clothes are not removed at the end of the cycle the automatic ANTI CREASE action will, on those programmes with this
feature, continue to rotate the drum intermittently for up to 10 hours to minimise creasing. The phase is stopped when the door is
opened or when the knob is set to OFF
11. Set the program knob to OFF to switch off the machine.
12. Disconnect the dryer from the power supply.
Automatic Anti Crease
This is an automatic function which provides an anti crease treatment both before and after the drying programme. By periodically
rotating the drum before the start of the drying cycle, when a delayed start is selected, the formation of creases is prevented. On
certain programmes the drum also rotates periodically at the end of the drying cycle on. The phase is stopped when the door is
opened or when the knob is set to OFF
Stand-by mode
This tumble dryer, in compliance with new energy saving regulations, is fitted with an automatic standby system which is enabled
after about 30 minutes if no activity is detected.

Programmes
Energy Saver
The Energy Saver Cycles reduce energy consumption and so they not only help the environment, they also cut your energy bill!
Energy Saver Cycles are available for several different types of fabric and they have been designed to give excellent drying performance for small loads.
Energy Saver Cycles give the best drying results thanks to perfect temperature regulation and to accurate humidity detection which
is optimized small loads.
Cottons
Standard Cotton: Dries your items to a dryness level that allows you to put your clothes away straight from the dryer.
Cotton Extra Dry: Dries your items to the maximum possible dryness level. Even drier than Standard Cotton dry.
Cotton Fast Iron: Dries your items to a dryness level that allows them to minimise ironing.
Synthetics
Recommended to delicately dry synthetic fabrics. This program can also used for delicates/acrylic fabrics (2kg) with LIGHT
DRYING option on
Easy Mix
This programme is ideal for drying cotton and synthetic fabrics together.

GB
Wool
This programme is specific for items that withstand tumble drying and are labelled with the symbol. It is suitable for loads of up to
1 kg (about 3 jerseys). We recommend turning the garments inside out before drying them. Garments dried with this programme are
usually ready to be worn, although the edges of heavier garments may be slightly damp. Leave them to dry naturally, as an additional drying process may damage them.
! Unlike other materials, the shrinking process in wool is irreversible, i.e. the garment does not resume its original dimension and
shape.
! This programme is not suited for acrylic items.
Fitness
This programme is studied for safely drying garments such as tracksuits and Fitness suits bearing the
up to 4 kg. We suggest turning garments inside out before drying them.
symbol. Suitable for loads of
Special Shoes Programme
This programme is specific for drying sports shoes. The shoes must have been previously washed and spun at a minimum spin
speed of 400 revolutions.
A specific shoe rack is provided and must be used, otherwise the dryer will be damaged if shoes are dried in the drum. Remove the
filter from its holder on the front part of the dryer and position the shoe rack.
Place shoelaces inside the shoes then load with the tips of the shoes facing downwards and the soles frontwards.
Drying times vary according to the shape and type of the shoe. If the shoes are not completely dry at the end of the programme,
restart the programme.
! Do not dry shoes that have gel or flashing lights inside them. Only dry shoes made of synthetic material or rope. Once the programme ends, remove the shoe rack and replace the filter into its holder.
Jeans
●This is a programme for jeans made from denim cotton. Before drying your jeans turn the front pockets inside out.
●Do not mix dark and light coloured items.
It can also be used on other garments made from the same material, such as jackets.
Loads dried using this programme are usually ready to wear, the edges or seams may be slightly damp. If this is the case, try turning
the jeans inside out and running the programme again for a short period.
! We do not recommend that you use this programme if your jeans have elastic waist bands, studs or embroidery.
My TiME (15’ - 35’ - 60’)
These programmes can be used if you want to set drying time and temperature.
The COOL TUMBLE cycle runs during the final minutes of the programme.
Damp to Dry 15’ timed programme is ideal to remove damp from tea towels and bath robe used once.
Xpress 35’: this is a quick timed programme, ideal for drying garments spun at high speed in the washing machine, for example
shirts used in a work week.
Daily 60’: a timed programme, ideal for drying garments spun at high speed in the washing machine, for example a change of
sheets.
Freshen Up
A short programme suitable for refreshing fibres and garments. It lasts about 20 minutes.
! As this is not a drying programme, it is not to be used for garments that are still wet.
● It can be used on any load size but is more effective on smaller loads

drum will rotate occasionally before the drying programme starts to prevent the formation of creases.
Child Lock
Prevents the program settings from being changed. After having selected the program and the available options, hold down the two
option buttons for 3 seconds (see “Dryer description”)
A prolonged beep will sound when the buttons are pressed and the LEDs on the options buttons will flash slowly twice. The LEDs
on the previously selected options will then remain lit but will no longer be modifiable.
If you attempt to change the settings with Child Lock activated, 3 short beeps will sound and 3 rapid flashes will warn you that it is
not possible to modify the program or the options underway.
Hold down the options buttons for three seconds to deactivate the Child Lock option. Child Lock can be selected with all
programs. The OFF position switches off the dryer.
Light Drying
Light Drying is a special option designed to gentle dry delicate clothes.
Press this button to select the low temperature setting; the light next to the button will switch on. Activating this option will increase
the duration of the cycles
! Not all options are available on all programmes (see Programmes and options).
Opening the door
If the door is opened (or the START/PAUSE button is pressed) while a programme is running, the dryer stops and the following may
occur:
• The START/PAUSE button flashes orange.
• When a delayed start is running, the delay countdown continues. It is necessary to press the START/PAUSE button to resume the
“Delay timer” programme. One of the “Delay timer” indicator light flashes to signal the delay time entered.
• It is necessary to press the START/PAUSE button to resume the programme. The progress indicator lights signal the running phase and the START/PAUSE indicator light stops flashing and turns green.
• When post care phase is active it means that drying programma is already ended. Pressing the START/PAUSE button reactivates
a new programme from the beginning.
• By turning the Programme selection knob, a new programme is selected and the START/PAUSE indicator light flashes green. This
procedure can be used to select the COOL TUMBLE programme to cool garments if they are judged to be dry enough.
Press the START/PAUSE button to start the new programme.
Note: If you have a power cut, switch off the power or remove the plug. When power is restored, plug in the machine. Turn the
knob to the desired program to restart dryer operation (to start the program press START/PAUSE). The OFF position switches off
the dryer.

Troubleshooting
If you feel that the dryer is not working properly, consult the following troubleshooting suggestions before contacting the Technical
Assistance Centre (see Assistance).
Problem:
Possible causes / Solutions:
The dryer does not start.
• The plug has not been inserted far enough into the socket to make contact.
• There has been a power cut.
• The fuse has burned out. Try connecting another appliance to the same socket.
• If an extension cord is used, try connecting the dryer plug directly into the socket.
• The door has not been closed properly.
• The programme has not been set correctly (see How to carry out a drying cycle).
• The START/PAUSE button has not been pressed (see How to carry out a drying
cycle).
The drying cycle does not start.
• A delayed start time has been set (see Programmes and options).
• The START/PAUSE button has been pressed; a short delay follows before the dryer
starts running. Wait for the drying cycle to start; do not press the START/PAUSE
button otherwise the dryer switches to the pause mode and the drying cycle will not
start.
Drying times are too long.
• The filter has not been cleaned (see Care and maintenance).
• The water container must be emptied? The “Empty water container” indicator light
flashes (see Care and maintenance).
• The condenser needs to be cleaned (see Care and maintenance).
• The heat setting is not suited to the type of fabric to be dried (see Programmes and
options).
• An incorrect drying time was selected for the type of load (see Laundry).
• The air intake grille or the rear air vents are clogged up (see Installation, and Care
and maintenance).
• The items are too wet (see Laundry).
• The dryer is overloaded (see Laundry).
The “Empty water container” indicator light flashes.
The programme is finished but the
items are damper than expected.
• The water bottle was not emptied before starting the programme. Always empty
it before starting a new drying programme (see Description of the tumble dryer) do not wait for the bottle full signal (buzzer beeps once every 5 seconds and the
indicator light flashes) before emptying the water container.
! For safety reasons, the dryer programmes last a maximum of 5 hours. If an
automatic programme has not detected the final dampness level required in this
interval, the dryer completes the programme and stops. Check the above points and
repeat the programme; if the items are still damp, contact the Technical Assistance
Centre (see Assistance).
The dryer is noisy during the first
few minutes of operation.
• This is normal, especially if the dryer has not been used for a long time. If the noise
persists during the entire cycle, contact the Technical Assistance Centre.
The lights on the dryer control
panel are off although the dryer is
switched on.
The dryer has gone into standby mode to save power. This occurs if you have left the
dryer on or have had a power cut. It occurs after 30 minutes:
- if you leave the dryer without starting a programme;
- after your drying programme has finished.
Turn the knob to the desired program to restart dryer operation (to start the program
press START/PAUSE). The OFF position switches off the dryer.

Information on recycling and disposal
As part of our continual commitment towards environmental protection, we reserve the right to use recycled quality components to
reduce costs for our customers and to minimise materials wastage.
• Disposing of the packaging materials: follow local regulations to allow for recycling of packaging materials.
• In order to minimise the risk of injury to children, remove the door and plug, then cut the power supply cord flush with the appliance. Dispose of these parts separately to prevent the appliance from being connected to a power supply socket.
Disposal of old household appliances
European Directive 2012/19/EC concerning Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) states that household
appliances should not be disposed of using the normal solid urban waste cycle. Exhausted appliances should be collected
separately in order to optimise the cost of re-using and recycling materials comprising the machine, while preventing
potential damage to public health and the environment. The crossed-out wheeled bin symbol appears on all products to
remind owners of the obligations regarding separate waste collection.
Owners should contact their local authorities or appliance dealers for further information concerning the correct disposal of household appliances.
This appliance conforms to the following EU directives:
- 2006/95/EC (Low Voltage Directive)
- 2004/108/EC (Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive).
