SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT TO BE READ AND OBSERVED
Before using the dryer carefully
read, Health and Safety and
Use and Care guides.
Keep these instructions close
at hand for future reference.
YOUR SAFETY AND SAFETY
OF OTHERS IS VERY
IMPORTANT.
This manual and the dryer
itself provide important safety
warnings, to be read and
observed at all times.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to
potential hazards that can kill
or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow
the safety alert symbol or the
word DANGER or WARNING.
These words mean:
DANGER
Indicates a hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, will
cause serious injury.
WARNING
Indicates a hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, could
cause serious injury.
All safety warnings give
specific details of the potential
risk presented and indicate
how to reduce risk of injury,
damage and electric shock
resulting from improper use of
the dryer. Carefully observe the
following instructions.
Failure to observe these
instructions may lead to risks.
The Manufacturer declines any
liability for injury to persons
or animals or damage to
property if these advices and
precautions are not respected.
Very young (0-3 years) and
young children (3-8 years)
shall be kept away unless
continuously supervised.
Children from 8 years old
and above and persons with
reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities or lack of
experience and knowledge
can use this dryer only if
they are supervised or have
been given instructions on
safe appliance use and if
they understand the hazards
involved. Children shall not
play with the dryer. Cleaning
and user maintenance shall not
be made by children without
supervision.
Items that have been soiled
with substances such as
cooking oil, acetone, alcohol,
petrol, kerosene, spot
removers, turpentine, waxes
and wax removers should be
washed in hot water with an
extra amount of detergent
before being dried in the
tumble dryer.
Items such as foam rubber
(latex foam), shower caps,
waterproof textiles, rubber
backed articles and clothes or
pillows fitted with foam rubber
pads should not be dried in the
tumble dryer.
Remove all objects from
pockets such as lighters and
matches.
Do not use the tumble dryer if
chemicals have been used for
cleaning.
Oil-soaked items ignite
spontaneously, especially
when exposed to heat sources
such as in a tumble dryer. The
items become warm, causing
an oxidation reaction in the
oil. Oxidation creates heat. If
the heat cannot escape, the
item can become hot enough
to catch fire. Piling, stacking or
storing oil-soaked items can
prevent heat from escaping
and so create a fire hazard.
WARNING
Never stop a tumble dryer
before the end of the drying
cycle unless all items are
quickly removed and spread
5
out so that the heat is
dissipated.
The last phase of the drying
cycle is done without heat
(cool down phase), to assure
that the laundry stays at a
temperature level which is not
leading to a damaging of the
laundry.
If you want to stack the dryer
on a washing machine, first
contact our After-Sales Service
to verify if this is possible.
Stacking of a dryer is only
admitted if the dryer is safely
fixed on the washing machine
by using an appropriate
stacking kit.
INTENDED USE OF THE
PRODUCT
This dryer is designed solely
for domestic usage. To aim
the dryer as professional use is
forbidden. The manufacturer
declines all responsibility for
inappropriate use or incorrect
setting of the controls.
CAUTION: The dryer is not
intended to be operated by
means of an external timer
or separate remote control
system.
Do not use the dryer outdoors.
Do not store explosive or
flammable substances such
as aerosol cans and do not
place or use gasoline or other
flammable materials in or near
the dryer: a fire may break out
if the dryer is inadvertently
switched on.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS
Always dry a full load,
depending on the type of
laundry and the programme/
drying time. For more
detailed information, see the
programme chart.
By preference use the
maximum spin speed allowed
by your washing machine,
since draining the water
mechanically requires less
energy. You will save time and
energy when running your
drying cycle.
Always select the correct
programme/drying time for
the load in order to obtain the
desired drying results.
Select the ‘Gentle’ option only
in case of drying small loads.
When drying cotton, for
example, dry Iron Dry and
Cupboard Dry loads together.
Start with the Iron Dry
programme/drying time
setting, remove the laundry
to be ironed at the end of that
cycle and dry the remainder of
the load on the Cupboard Dry
setting.

ENERGY SAVING
AUTOMATIC SWITCH-OFF FUNCTION
The dryer is designed to save energy. After the
programme has finished, it therefore switches off
automatically after about a quarter of an hour.
ENERGY SAVING TIPS
• To reduce the drying time, make sure that the
laundry is spun with the maximum possible spin
speed of the wash programme. This reduces the
moisture content in the laundry.
• Preferably dry a full load, as indicated in the
Programmes table. This optimizes the relative
energy consumption.
• Do not over dry the laundry.
The period from programme end to automatic
switching off (= Eco mode) can be prolonged, or the
automatic switch-off function can even be disabled.
Refer to section FUNCTIONS / SETTINGS
• The optimum ambience temperature for the
dryer is between 15 and 20 °C. In case of a higher
temperature, air the room.
• Use Gentle option only with small loads.
• When drying cotton or synthetics laundry, run
Iron dry and Cupboard dry loads together. Start
the programme with dryness level Iron dry. At the
end of the programme, remove the laundry to be
ironed. Finish the drying process for the remaining
load with dryness level Cupboard dry.
• Clean the door filter after every drying cycle.
• Clean the bottom filter after every fifth drying
cycle.
