environment
1.1.2 Product safety
•Superheating of the clothes inside of the dryer can
occur if you cancel the programme or in the event
of a power failure whilst the dryer is running, this
concentration of heat can cause self-combustion
and fire so always activate the ventilation
programme to cool down or quickly remove all
laundry from the dryer in order to hang them up
and dissipate the heat.
Points to be taken into consideration for fire
hazard:
Below specified laundry or items must not be dried
in the dryer because of fire hazard.
•Unwashed laundry items
•Items soiled with oil, acetone, alcohol, fuel oil,
kerosene, stain removers, turpentine, paraffin or
solvents must be washed in hot water with plenty
of detergent before being dried in the dryer.

Items such as lighters, matches, coins, metal parts,
needle etc. may damage the drum set or may lead
to functional problems. Therefore check pockets off
the laundry that you will load into your dryer.
Never stop your dryer before the programme
completes. If you must do this, remove all laundry
quickly and lay them out to dissipate the heat.
Clothes that are washed inadequately may ignite on
their own and even may ignite after drying ends.
•You must provide enough ventilation in order to prevent
gases exiting from devices operating with other types of
fuels including the naked flame from accumulating in the
room due to the back fire effect.
