Condensed Water Drain-out
Leveling the appliance
R
Normally, condensed water is pumped up to the
water container where water is collected until
manually emptied. Water can also be drained
out directly to a mains drain, especially when
the dryer is stacked on top of a washing
machine. With a connecting kit for the mains
drain hose, simply change the water path and
re-route to the drainage facility as below:
Leveling the appliance prevents unnecessary
noise and vibration. Place the appliance on a
solid, level floor.
If the appliance is not properly level, adjust the
front leveling feet as necessary.
Turn them clockwise to raise and counterclockwise to lower until the appliance no longer
wobbles, both front-to-back and side-to-side and
corner-to-corner.

Ensure the lint filter and water container are
clean.
• The lint filter is inside the door rim. It
needs to be cleaned before each drying
cycle.
• Open the door and ensure the lint filter is
clean. If it is not, please clean the lint
filter.
• Also check if the water container needs to
be emptied for optimum drying results.
WARNING
• Do not drink the condensed water.
NOTE
• In some instances, LED window may display
(Empty water symbol) and the appliance
may stop because the water container is full.
2
Place laundry into the drum after sorting.
• The clothes should be sorted by fabric
type and dryness level and all the strings
and belts of clothes should be well tied
and fixed before being put into the drum.

EN
CAUTION
••Be careful! The drum inside may still be hot.
••The appliance must not be used for purposes
other than those for which it was designed.
NOTE
••The final part of a tumble dryer cycle occurs
without heat (cool down cycle) to ensure that
laundry is left at a temperature that ensures
the laundry will not be damaged.
••A high atmospheric temperature and a small
room may both increase drying time as well
as energy consumption.
Sorting Laundry
Clothes have their own wash care labels, so
drying according to the wash care label is
recommended.
Not only that, the laundry must be sorted
according to size and type of fabric.
For the best drying performance and most
efficient energy usage, do not overload the
appliance.
Woollens
••Dry woollens on the Wool programme. Be
sure to follow fabric care label symbols first.
Wool may not be completely dried from the
cycle, so do not repeat drying. Pull woollens
to their original shape and dry them flat.

WARNING
••Open the second lint filter.
••Remove the power plug when you clean the
appliance. Not removing the plug may result in
electric shock.
Cleaning the Lint Filter
Clean the lint filter before each drying cycle. It
should also be cleaned if the
icon becomes
illuminated and the buzzer sounds while the
appliance is in operation.
Cleaning the lint filter will reduce drying time
and energy consumption.
1
Open the door.
2
Remove the first lint filter.
3
5
Rinse away the lint under warm, running
water.
6
Dry the lint filters completely, close them
and reinsert both lint filters.
Remove the second lint filter.
NOTE
4
30
Open both lint filters and remove all the lint.
••Open the first lint filter.
••Remove moisture from the mesh. Otherwise,
the lint filter may be clogged due to water film
and the appliance may not operate.
••If the lint filter is not in the appliance, you can
not operate the appliance.
EN
Emptying the Water Container
Condensed water is collected in the water
container.
Empty the water container after every use. Not
doing so will affect the drying performance.
If the water container is full, the
icon glows
and the buzzer sounds while the appliance is
operating. If this should occur, the water
container needs to be emptied within the next
hour.
1
Cleaning the Cool Air Inlet
Grill
Vacuum the Cool Air Inlet grill 3 – 4 times a
year to make sure there is no build up of lint or
dirt that may cause improper air flow.
Pull out the water container.
NOTE
2
Empty the water container in the sink.
••Warm air is exhausted through the ventilation
grill.
••Adequate ventilation should be provided to
avoid the back flow of gases into the room
from units burning other fuels, such as open
fires.
Wiping the Moisture Sensor
This device senses the moisture level of the
laundry during operation, which means it must
be cleaned regularly to remove any build up of
lime scale on the surface of the sensor.
Wipe the sensors inside the drum.

Press the Start/Pause button.
CAUTION
••Do not wipe the moisture sensor with abrasive
