SELECTING A LOCATION
10 cm
5 cm
10 cm
You need a space at least 60 cm wide, with at least 10 cm of clearance on both sides and
above, and 5 cm of clearance behind the appliance. See the diagram above for an example.
Failure to heed the minimum clearance requirements may cause the dryer to overheat.
Ventilation slots and the opening on the front and rear should always be kept free.
Do not install the appliance in a room where frost may form.
The room in which the appliance is installed should be adequately ventilated, with
temperature between 10 °C and 25 °C. When the dryer is operated at a lower ambient
temperature, condensate can accumulate in the appliance interior. Frozen water in the
water container or pump may damage the dryer.
The ambient light level where the dryer is installed should be adequate to read the front
panel properly.

POSITIONING THE APPLIANCE
4X
The dryer can either be free standing on the floor or, using the vacuum feet, on a washing
machine of the same dimensions.
– minimum width 517 mm, minimum depth 476 mm. The surface on which the dryer is
placed should be clean and level.
Use the vacuum feet supplied; they are designed to prevent the dryer from sliding.
The washing machine on which you wish to install the dryer must be able to bear the
weight of the dryer (refer to the washing machine's operating instructions for further
information).
15

Children shall not play with the appliance.
Do not climb onto the appliance.
10:55:54
Make sure to ask a service person for installation. Do not
install by yourself.
If the installation, test run and inspection of the tumble
dryer are not carried out following this installation method,
Panasonic will not be liable for any accident or damage
caused.
Never block the cool air opening (see dryer description).
Do not attempt to lift the dryer on your own. Lifting should
only be attempted by at least two persons.
Do not place the dryer on a carpet with a deep pile as this
may impede air circulation.
Do not install the appliance with it in contact with a wall or
adjacent furniture, etc.

INSTALLATION
Level the dryer
front-back, and leftright, by rotating
the adjustable feet
which have a range
of +/- 1 cm. Use a
22 mm spanner and
a spirit level.
The appliance must stand level and stable on a solid, clean
dry level floor to prevent the unit sliding. Also ensure that the
adjustable feet are clean.
Vibrations, the appliance moving across the room, or loud
operation due to improperly adjusted feet are not covered by
the warranty.

510549
Sometimes, unusual or loud noises may appear during
operation; these are mostly the result of poor or improper
installation.
10:55:55
CONDENSATE DISCHARGE
The moisture from the laundry is extracted in the condenser unit
and accumulated in the water container.
During the drying process, an indicator light will warn you when
the water container is full and which has to be emptied.
Interruption of the drying cycle due to the water container being
full can be avoided by running the condensate discharge tube,
found at the back of the appliance, directly into a drain.
1
To remove the
tube from the
holder on the rear
of the appliance (on
the left hand side
under the cover),
use a flat-blade
screwdriver, and
carefully pull the
tube.
max 80 cm
2
Connect the
tube to a
drain, located at a
maximum height
of 80 cm from the
ground.
If the condensate discharge tube is connected to a drain,
ensure the tube is firmly secured to prevent any water spillage
which could result in unexpected damage.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
2h
The dryer should be left to stand still for at least two hours
before it is connected to the power mains to allow the system to
stabilise.
Plug the dryer's mains plug directly into a mains socket. Do not use
an extension lead due the possible danger of overheating and fire.
The nominal voltage and other information are given on the rating
plate located under the door frame.
To prevent from damage by excess voltage on the mains due
to lightning strike we recommend use of a class I over-voltage
protector between the machine and the mains.
19
NH-P8ER1_WGB_En.indd
19
2015/08/24
510549
After installation, the mains socket should be freely accessible.
The mains socket should be fitted with an earth contact (in
compliance with the relevant regulations).
10:55:55
MOVING AND TRANSPORT
If the dryer cannot be transported in the upright position, tilt it to the left side.
If the appliance was not transported in compliance with the
instructions, the dryer should be left to stand still at least two
hours before it is reconnected to the power mains. Failure
to do so may result in a heat pump failure which shall not be
covered by the warranty.
Be careful not to damage the cooling system.
SUBSEQUENT TRANSPORT
After each drying cycle, a small amount of condensed water
will remain in the pump section. Switch on the appliance and
choose one of the programmes, then let the appliance operate
for approximately half a minute. This will pump out the remaining
water and prevent damage to the dryer during transport.
After transport, the dryer should be left to stand still for at
least two hours before it is connected to the power mains to
allow the system to stabilise. We recommend that installation
and connection should be done by a qualified person.
The belt should only be replaced by a service engineer, using
an original spare part.

TIPS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
FOR DRYING AND ECONOMIC
USE OF YOUR DRYER
The most economical way of drying is to dry the recommended
amount of laundry in each batch (see Programme Table).
Drying laundry made of particularly delicate fabrics that may be
deformed is not recommended.
Use of conditioner in the washing cycle is not necessary as the
laundry is soft and smooth after drying in the dryer. Drying
time will be shorter and power consumption will be lower if the
garments are thoroughly wrung or spun before drying. By selecting
the appropriate drying programme, you will avoid over drying your
laundry and problems with ironing or shrinkage of fabric.
Regular cleaning of the filters will lead to optimum drying time and
minimum power consumption.
39
NH-P8ER1_WGB_En.indd

2015/08/24
510549
When drying smaller amounts of laundry or individual garments,
the sensor may not perceive the actual level of moisture in the
laundry. In such cases, it is recommended to dry smaller items or
amounts with programmes for dryer laundry or with the timed
programme.
10:55:58

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION (For UK and Republic of Ireland)
For your safety, please read the following
text carefully.
This appliance is supplied with a moulded
3-pin mains plug for your safety and
convenience.
A 13-ampere fuse is fitted in this plug.
Should the fuse need to be replaced, ensure
that the replacement fuse has a rating of 13
amperes and that it is approved by ASTA or
BSI to BS1362.Check for the ASTA mark
or the BSI mark
on the body of the fuse.
If the plug contains a removable fuse cover,
ensure that it is refitted when the fuse is
replaced.
If you lose the fuse cover, do not use until a
replacement fuse cover is purchased from
your local dealer.
How to replace the fuse
The location of the fuse differs depending
on the type of AC mains plug (Figures A
and B).
Confirm the AC mains plug is fitted and
follow the instructions below. Illustrations
may differ from the actual AC mains plug.
Open the fuse cover with a screwdriver and
replace the fuse and close or attach the
fuse cover.
--Figure A
WARNING
If the fitted moulded plug is unsuitable
for the mains socket in your home then
the fuse should be removed and the
plug cut off and disposed of safely.
There is a danger of severe electrical
shock if the cut off plug is inserted into
any 13-ampere socket.
