VENTILATION
Installation of the Discharge Hose
It is essential to use a venting hose to carry the hot moist air away from the dryer unless the dryer is
situated in a open space with a good air flowaround it. Recirculation of the moist air will prevent the
efficient operation of the dryer.
The hose is assembled to the machine as shown. The hose may be fitted through a wall or through
an open door or window. The hose is 110mm in diameter and will extend 1.8 meters.
The following guidelines should be followed when installing the
discharge hose.
● Do not use two hoses joined together as the drying performance will
be reduced.
● Do not restrict the flow of air through the hose e.g. by kinking it or fitting
a smaller diameter connector to mount to a wall opening.
● Avoid the hose making U shaped curves as this will restrict the flow of
air and increase the chance that water will collect in the hose.
● Check the hose regularly to remove any build-up of fluff or water that
may have collected in it.
The following diagrams give examples of good and bad installations.

Energy Saving
Only put into the tumble dryer laundry which
has been thoroughly wrung or spin-dried. The
drier the laundry the shorter the drying time thus
saving electricity.

will save time and electricity.
● Check that the filter is clean before every
drying cycle.
NEVER
● Exceed the maximum weight, this will waste
time and electricity.
● Put dripping wet items into the tumble dryer,
this may damage the appliance.
Do not overload the drum, large items
when wet can exceed the maximum admissible
clothes load (for example: sleeping bags,
duvets).
If the item does not have a care label it must be
assumed that it is not suitable for tumble drying.
● By amount and thickness
Whenever the load is bigger than the dryer
capacity, separate clothes according to
thickness (e.g. towels from thin underwear).
● By type of fabric
Cottons/linen: Towels, cotton jersey, bed and
table linen.
Synthetics: Blouses, shirts, overalls, etc.
made of polyester or polyamid, as well as for cotton/synthetic mixes.

DESCRIPTION
Bone Dry
Extra Dry

Bone Dry cycle for bath towels and bathrobes, Extra Dry cycle
through for items that will be put away without ironing, to the
programme that leaves the laundry suitable for ironing.
Iron Dry
Wool Finish
A gentle programme specially created to get woollens softer after
air-drying.This delicate warm air cycle, lasting 12 minutes, can
also be used to get woollens 'refreshed' after being stored in the
wardrobe.
Relax 12
The programme provides a conditioning and anticrease function.
The dryer will heat the load for 9 minutes followed by a 3 minute
cool down period and is especially good for garments which may
have been left for some time prior to ironing, in a linen basket for
example. Garments may also become stiffened when dried
outside on a washing line or inside on radiators.
This programme relaxes the creases in the fabric making ironing
quicker and easier.
Rapid 40
The 40’ Rapid programme allows a drying cycle to be completed
quickly. This is an ideal programme for having dry, refreshed and
ready-to-wear clothes in less than 40'. This special programme
constantly monitors the dryness and temperature in the drum
thanks to the sensor using, using the exact time and energy you
need! The machine finishes the cycle when the cupboard dry level
is reached. The stated cycle length could vary according to fabric
types, load size and residual moisture in the garments.The
maximum load is 2kg and the programme is suitable for all types of
fabric where tumble drying is appropriate.
