Environmental tips
• In the dryer, laundry becomes fluffy and soft. Fabric
softeners are not therefore needed when washing.
• Your dryer will function most economically if you:
– Always keep the ventilation slots on the base of the
dryer unobstructed;
– Use the loading volumes specified in the programme overview;
– Ensure you have good ventilation in the installation
– Clean the micro-fine filter and fine strainer after each
drying cycle;
– Spin the laundry well before drying.
Energy consumption depends on spinning speed
set in washing machine. Higher spinning speed lower energy consumption.
Environmental information
The packaging materials are environmentally friendly and
can be recycled. The plastic components are identified by
markings, e.g. >PE<, >PS<, etc. Please dispose of the
packaging materials in the appropriate container at the
community waste disposal facilities.
Warning! When the unit is no longer being used:
• Pull the plug out of the socket.
• Cut off the cable and plug and dispose of them.

position for transport.
Appliance positioning
• 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 grilles 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
• 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 by using deep pile carpets, strips of
wood or similar. This might cause heat built-up which
would interfere with the operation of the appliance.
• The hot air emitted by the tumble dryer can reach temperatures of up to 60°C. The appliance must therefore
not be installed on floors which are not resistant to
high temperatures.
• When operating the tumble dryer, the room temperature must not be lower than +5°C and higher than
+35°C, as it may affect the performance of the appliance.

Sorting laundry
• Sort by fabric type:
– Cotton/linen for programmes in COTTONS programme group.
– Mixtures and synthetics for programmes in SYNTHETICS programme group.
• Sort by care label: The care labels mean:
Drying in the tumble dryer possible in principle
Drying at normal temperature
Drying at reduced temperature
Drying in the tumble dryer not possible
• Turn items with double-layered fabrics inside out (e.g.
with cotton-lined anoraks, the cotton layer should be
outermost). These fabrics will then dry better.

Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning fluff filters
The filters collect all the fluff which accumulates during
drying. To ensure that the dryer works perfectly, the fluff
filters (fine filters and fluff filters) must be cleaned after
each drying cycle.
Caution! Never operate the dryer without fluff filters
or with damaged or blocked fluff filters.
Clean the door seal
Wipe the door seal with a damp cloth immediately after
the drying cycle has finished.
Emptying the water reservoir
Empty the water reservoir after every drying cycle.
• Never operate the dryer without condenser.
• Clogged condenser cause higher energy consumption
(drying cycle elongation) and dryer damage.
• Do not use sharp objects to clean.
Cleaning the drum
Caution! Do not use abrasives or steel wool to clean
the drum.
Caution! The condensed water is not suitable for
drinking or for preparing foodstuffs.
If the programme has been interrupted as a result
of the water reservoir being full: Press the Start/
Pause button to continue the drying cycle.
Cleaning condenser
Lime in the water or cleaning agents may form a
barely visible lining on the inside of the drum. The
degree to which the laundry has been dried is then no
longer detected reliably. The laundry is damper than expected when removed from the appliance.
Use a standard domestic cleaner (e.g. vinegar-based
cleaner) to wipe down the inside of the drum and drum
