path of least resistance for electric current. This appliance
is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
DO NOT modify the plug provided with the appliance:
if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician or exchange the cord with an
appropriate one rated for the dryer.

Easy Iron Program
Easy Iron is a short 10 minute programme (8 minutes of heat followed by a 2 minute Air Fluff period) which fluffs
the fibers of clothing that have been left in the same position/location for an extended period of time. The cycle
relaxes the fibers and makes them easier to iron and fold.
! Easy Iron is not a drying program and should not be used for wet articles of clothing.
For best results:
1. Do not load more than the maximum capacity.
These numbers refer to the dry weight:
Fabric
Maximum load
Regular Cotton and Regular Cotton mix
5.5 lb / 2.5 kg
Permanent Press
4 lb / 2 kg
Denim
4 lb / 2 kg
2. Unload the dryer immediately after the end of the program, hang, fold or iron the articles and put them away.
Should this not be possible, repeat the program.
The Easy Iron effect varies from one fabric to the next. It works very well on traditional fabrics like Regular
Cottons or Regular Cotton mix, and less well on acrylic fibers.

EN
Special clothing items
Times are approximate and can vary depending
upon:
Blankets and Bedspreads: acrylic items (Acilan,
Courtelle, Orion, Dralon) must be dried with special
care on LOW heat setting. Avoid drying for a long
period of time.
●
Amount of water retained in clothes after spin
cycle: towels and delicates retain a lot of water.
●
Fabrics: items that are the same type of fabric but
different textures and thicknesses may not have
the same drying time.
●
Quantity of laundry: single items or small loads
may take longer to dry.
●
Dryness: If you are going to iron some of your
clothes, they can be taken out while still a bit
damp. Others can be left longer if you need them
to be completely dry.
●
Heat setting.
●
Room temperature: if the room where the dryer is
located is cold, it will take longer for the dryer to
dry your clothes.
●
Bulk: some bulky items can be tumble dried with
care. We suggest that you remove these items
several times, shake them out, and return them to
the dryer until finished.
Pleated or creased garments: read the manufacturer’s
drying instructions on the garment.
Starched articles: do not dry these with non-starched
items. Make sure that as much of the starch solution is
removed from the load as possible before placing it in
the dryer. Do not over-dry: the starch will become
powdery and leave your clothing limp, which defeats
the purpose of starch.

! Do not over-dry your clothes.
All fabrics contain a little natural moisture, which
keeps them soft and fluffy.
Maintenance and Care
When to switch off the electricity
Cleaning the condenser unit
! Unplug your dryer when not using it, when cleaning
it and during maintenance activities.
Periodically (every month) remove the condenser unit
and clean any build up of fluff from between the plates
by rinsing it under the tap with cold water.
This should be done with cold water from the rear of
the condenser.
To remove the condenser:
1. Unplug the dryer and open the door.
2. Pull open the condenser cover (see diagram).
Release the three catches by turning 90˚ counterclockwise then pull on the grip and remove from
the dryer.
3. Clean the surface of the seals and replace, making
sure that the catches have been secured.
Clean the filter after each cycle
The filter is an important part of your dryer:
it accumulates lint and fluff that is formed while drying.
When finished drying, clean the filter by rinsing it
under running water or with your vacuum cleaner.
Should the filter become clogged up, the airflow inside
the dryer will be seriously compromised: drying times
lengthen and you will consume more energy. It may
also damage your dryer.
The filter is found in front of the dryer trim (see diagram).
Removing the filter:
1. Pull the plastic grip of the filter upwards (see diagram).
2. Clean the filter and replace it correctly.
Ensure the filter is fully located flush into the tumble
dryer trim.
! Do not use the dryer without replacing the filter.
Check the drum after each cycle
Turn the drum manually in order to remove small items
(handkerchiefs) that could have been left behind.
Cleaning the dryer
External parts in metal or plastic and rubber parts
can be cleaned with a damp cloth.
●
Periodically (every 6 months) vacuum the front air
intake grille and vents at the rear of the dryer, to
remove any build up of fluff, lint or dust. Also to
remove accumulation of fluff from the front of the
condenser and filter areas, clean occasionally with
a vacuum cleaner.
! Do not use solvents or abrasives.
! Your dryer uses special bearing components which
do not need lubrication.
! Have your dryer checked regularly by authorized
technicians to ensure electrical and mechanical safety.
●
Cleaning the drum
! Do not use abrasives, steel wool or stainless steel
cleaning agents to clean the drum.
A coloured film may start to appear on the stainless
steel drum, this may be caused by a combination of
water and, or cleaning agents such as fabric conditioner
from the wash. This coloured film will not affect the
dryer performance.
