Your New Tumble Dryer
This tumble dryer will give your wash that soft, relaxed feel whatever the weather.
Extremely high quality standards both during development and
manufacturing guarantee a long service life for your appliance.
Maximum economy in the operation of your dryer is achieved through
very frugal electricity consumption and short drying times.
Energy saving tips
• When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the power
To save energy we recommend that you follow these hints:
• Try to load the maximum capacity of the machine
as small loads are uneconomical.
• Always load well spun laundry. The higher the spin
speed, the lower the electricity consumption and
the shorter the drying times.
• Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids creasing and
saves energy.
• Clean the filters regularly to avoid excessive drying
times and high electricity consumption.
• Ventilate the room well. The room temperature
should not exceed +35°C during drying.
•
supply cable and make the door closing device unusable
to prevent young children from being trapped inside.

Hints & Tips on Drying
Before placing articles of laundry in your tumble
dryer, check the care labels to ensure they are
recommended for tumble drying.
• Always load well spun laundry. The higher the spin
speed the lower the electricity consumption and the
shorter the drying time.
• DO NOT load dripping wet laundry into the dryer.
Roll the article in a towel or spin to remove excess
water.
• Close poppers and zips and fasten any buttons.
• Sort the laundry. Separate synthetics from
cotton/linens, and dry separately.
• Remove the laundry immediately after the
programme has finished.
• Use a fabric conditioning sheet to reduce static. We
recommend the sheet is pinned to an article of
laundry (using a safety pin).
• Mix the load i.e. large and small articles.
• When drying large items such as sheets, we
recommend you periodically stop the dryer to
redistribute the load.
Care Labels you may find on your laundry

After a while, a whitish patina due to detergent
residue on laundry forms on the filters. When this
occurs, clean the filters (specially the filter in the
door opening) with warm water using a brush.
Remove it as per picture (it can be positioned with
the tooth facing to the left or to the right).

Do not use the appliance without filters.
Cleaning the condenser unit
Clean the air condenser periodically, 3 or 4 times a
year depending on how frequently the dryer is used.
The condenser is situated at the lower part of the
cabinet behind a small door. To open the door, push
the catch as shown in the picture.
P1150
Cleaning the filters
Your dryer will only function well if the filters are
clean.
The filters collect all the fluff which accumulates
during drying and they must therefore be cleaned at
the end of each programme, before removing the
laundry, with a damp cloth.

unit holding it at the handle.

The filter in the inner door must be removed for
cleaning.
Do not be alarmed by the amount of fluff. It is not
due to excessive wear caused by the dryer. All fabric
looses fluff when drying but it goes un-noticed in the
air. In a tumble dryer it simply collects in the filter.

The reservoir must be re-inserted correctly.
Push it until it clicks.
After inserting the reservoir the programme will
continue after about 20 seconds.
Handy tip: The condensed water may be used in a
steam iron or to top up a battery, etc. In this case it
must be filtered (e.g. through a coffee filter)
Also clean the outside, removing all fluff.
Clean the rubber seal round the condenser cabinet
and in the inner part of the small door with a damp
cloth.
Important! Do not use pointed objects or utensils to
clean the spaces between the plates, as this could
damage the condenser and make it permeable.
Re-fit the condenser, turn the red stops upwards and
close the door.
Cleaning the air intake grille
Using a vacuum cleaner remove the fluff from the air
intake grille at the back of the appliance.
Do not use this appliance if the condenser
has not been fitted.
Emptying the water reservoir
Water extracted from the laundry condenses inside
the machine and is collected in a reservoir.
The reservoir must be emptied after each drying
cycle to ensure efficient operation when the machine
is next used.
If this is not done a safety device trips: pilot light
“Empty Tank” on the control panel comes on and the
programme stops, leaving the laundry damp.
The reservoir can be emptied even in the middle of a
programme.
Proceed as follows:
• Open the small door at the lower part of the
cabinet
• Turn the yellow stop upwards
• Pull out the reservoir
• Open the small cover and let water flow down
• Close the small cover and re-insert correctly the
reservoir
• Push it until it clicks and turn the yellow stop
downwards to lock it firmly.
• Close the small door and press the
START/PAUSE button again to allow the
programme to continue.

Positioning
Door reversal
It is recommended that, for your convenience, the
machine is positioned close to your washing
machine.
The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean place,
where dirt does not build up.
Air must be able to circulate freely all round the
appliance. Do not obstruct the front ventilation grille
or the air intake grille at the back of the machine.
To keep vibration and noise to a minimum when the
dryer is in use, it should be placed on a firm, level
surface.
Once in its permanent operating position, check that
the dryer is absolutely level with the aid of a spirit
level. If it is not, raise or lower the feet until it is.
The feet must never be removed.
Do not restrict the floor clearance through deeppile carpets, strips of wood or similar. This might
cause heat build-up which would interfere with
the operation of the appliance.
The appliance must not be installed behind the
lockable door, a sliding door or a door
with a hinge on the opposite side to that of the
appliance.
To make it easier to load or unload the laundry the
door can be reversed.
This operation must be carried out by qualified
personnel.
Please contact the nearest Service Force Centre.
This will be a chargeable option.
