C
A
Preparation of the dryer's location
as well as the electrical and waste
water installations is under customer's
responsibility.
Prior to installation, visually check if the
dryer has any defects on it. If the drier
is damaged, do not have it installed.
Damaged products cause risks for your
safety.
3.2 Removing the transportation safety
assembly
A
Remove the transportation safety
assembly before using the dryer for the
first time.
A
Check that no part of the transportation
safety assembly remains inside the drum.

14 /32 EN
Hose connection should be made in a
safe manner. Your drain house will be
flooded if the hose comes out of its
housing during water discharge.
Unplug the dryer before transporting it.
Drain all water that has remained in the dryer.
If direct water drain connection is made, then remove the
hose connections.
We recommend carrying the dryer in
upright position. If it is not possible to
carry the machine in the upright position,
we recommend carrying it by tilting
towards the right side when looked from
the front.
A
Water drain hose should be attached to a
height of maximum 80 cm.
Make sure that the water drain hose
is not stepped on and it is not folded
between the drain and the machine.
Dryer / User Manual
4 Electrical Connection
Make sure that you have an earthed power outlet socket
rated at 13 amps (minimum).
4.1 Attention!
When installed, the socket must be reachable after
installation, or a separate switch (which can disconnect
the two poles) must be used in the installation. Check
for suitability.
For a permanent connection, a master switch with at
least 3mm contact clearance and minumum 13 A rating
must be used.
4.2 Electrical requirements
Before you insert the plug into the wall socket make
sure that the voltage and the frequency shown in the
rating label corresponds to your electricity supply.
We recommend that this appliance be connected to the
mains supply via a suitable switched and fused socket
in a readily accessible position.
Should the mains lead of the appliance become
damaged or need replacing at any time, it must be
replaced by a special purpose made mains lead which
can only be obtained from a Authorised Service Agent.
A Warning
This appliance must be earthed
If the fitted moulded plug is not suitable for your socket,
then the plug should be cut off and an appropriate plug
fitted.
The moulded plug on this appliance incorporates a 13A
fuse. Should the fuse need to be replaced an ASTA
approved BS1362 fuse of the same rating must be
used. Do not forget to refit the fuse cover. In the event
of losing the fuse cover, the plug must not be used until
a replacement fuse cover has been fitted. Colour of the
replacement fuse cover must be the same colour as
that visible on the pin face of the plug. Fuse covers are
available from any good electrical store.
In order to avoid hazards, damaged supply cord should
be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or
similarly qualified people.
Built-under installation
This appliance can be installed under a worktop.
A Do not operate without the top cover fitted. Risk of
injury.

4.3 Fitting a different plug
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this
appliance may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals on your plug, proceed
as follows:
1 Connect the green - yellow or green (earth) wire to the
terminal in the plug marked ‘E’ or with the symbol or
coloured green and yellow or green.
2 Connect the blue (neutral) wire to the terminal in the
plug marked ‘N’ or coloured black.
3 Connect the brown (live) wire to the terminal in the
plug marked ‘L’ or coloured red.
With the alternative plugs a 13A fuse must be fitted
either in the plug or adaptor or in the main fuse box. If in
doubt contact a qualified electrician.
4.4 Washer/dryer combination
Do not stack washing machine on top of the tumble
dryer. This would damage both appliances and
guarantees would become void. It is also unsafe to
stack an appliance on top of another without using a
suitable and approved stacking kit obtained from the
