Whirlpool AZB 8575 Instruction for Use | Manualzz
To avoid injuries, damages on the dryer and its surrounding area or even a fire,
you must observe the instructions below.
Packaging, damages, handling
• Keep the packaging foil away from children; danger of suffocation.
• Do not operate the dryer if it has been damaged during transport or later.
Inform the After-Sales Service.
• If the dryer was exposed to the cold before delivery, keep it at room
temperature for a few hours before installation. Cold temperatures can affect
the proper functioning of electronic parts.
• Never lift your dryer by holding it on extruding parts (e.g. door) or on the
worktop; parts might loosen or break and persons might get injured.
• For lifting the dryer, at least 2 persons are necessary, to avoid accidents.
Location and surrounding area
• The dryer is appropriate for indoor use only.
• Do not install the dryer in rooms with poor ventilation. If you want to install it in a
small storage room, toilet, bathroom or similar, assure a good ventilation (open
door, ventilation grid or slot larger than 500 cm²).
• Do not install the dryer where it will be exposed to extreme temperatures below
5°C or over 35°C, to avoid malfunction, damages to dryer parts or fire.
The dryer must be placed with the back towards a wall, to avoid injuries by
touching the rear panel, which can become hot during the drying process.
• Do not store flammable fluids near the dryer, to prevent fires.
• Do not install the dryer behind a lockable door, a sliding door or a door with a
hinge on the opposite side to the tumble dryer's door, in a way that a full opening
of the dryer door is restricted.
• Do not install the dryer on a deep pile carpet, to avoid that the ventilation
openings are clogged.
• Do not store flammable fluids near the dryer, to prevent fires.
• If you must install the dryer next to a gas or coal stove, you must fix a heat
insulating plate (85 x 57 cm) between dryer and stove; the plate's side pointing
towards the oven must be covered with aluminium foil, to protect the dryer
against high temperatures.
• Built-in installation of the tumble dryer is not permitted.
• If you want to install the dryer under a worktop, make sure that a ventilation grid
(minimum 45 x 8 cm) is inserted in the rear part of the worktop where the dryer
will be installed, to assure sufficient ventilation.
Stacking on a washing machine
• If you want to place the dryer on top of your washing
machine, first contact our After-Sales Service or your specialist
dealer to verify if this is possible. Stacking of a dryer is only
admitted if the dryer and your washing machine are
compatible, and if an appropriate stacking kit is available
through our After-Sales Service or your specialist dealer by
which the dryer can be safely fixed on the washing machine.
Electrical connection
• The dryer must only be connected to an earthed socket
which is in compliance with the current safety regulations
and which is appropriate for the values regarding
voltage, power consumption and protection
requirements as they are indicated on the rating plate on
the rear of the dryer.
• Do not use extension leads, extension leads with multiple sockets, or
adapters; they might cause a fire by overheating. If you need a longer mains
cable, contact our After-Sales Service.
• After installation, access to the mains plug or to disconnection from mains
supply by a double-pole switch must be ensured at all times, to make sure
the dryer can be separated immediately from the mains supply.
• For unplugging the dryer, do not pull the mains cable, to avoid damaging it.
Never touch the mains plug with wet hands, to avoid an electrical shock.
• Do not trap the mains cable between the dryer and the wall, to prevent
damages on the cable.
• Do not operate the dryer if the mains cable or plug shows damages.
• Before doing any maintenance on the dryer, disconnect it from the mains
supply, to avoid dangers.
• If necessary, the mains cable can be replaced; the replacement must only be
done by our After-Sales Service or by a qualified technician, to avoid
• When using a residual current circuit breaker (RCCB), only use a model
marked with
Children and handicapped people
• Children must not play with the dryer
• Children younger than 3 years should be kept away from the dryer, unless
they are continuously supervised.
• The dryer can be operated by children from the age of 8 years up, as well as
by people with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of
experience and knowledge, provided they are supervised or instructed
regarding the safe use of the dryer and they understand the dangers
resulting from the use.
• Care and maintenance works on the dryer must not be done by children
without being supervised.
• Ensure that children and small animals cannot get into the drum.
Safe operation/minimizing the risk of a fire
Do not tumble dry laundry containing oil, to prevent a fire. Oil-bearing items
can ignite spontaneously, especially when they are exposed to heat sources
as in a tumble dryer. The items would 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.
Do not tumble dry unwashed laundry in the tumble dryer.
Laundry items that have been soiled with substances such as cooking oil,
acetone, alcohol, benzene, petroleum, kerosene, stain removers, turpentine,
wax or wax removers must 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
must not be dried in the tumble dryer.
Remove all objects from pockets such as lighters and matches.
Do not use flammable cleaning agents.
Do not use the tumble dryer if chemicals have been used for cleaning.
Fabric softeners or similar products must be used as specified by the fabric
softener instructions.
Never stop the tumble dryer before the end of the drying cycle, unless all
items are quickly removed and spread out so that the heat is dissipated. The
final phase of a drying cycle always occurs without heat (cool down phase),
to ensure that the laundry items are left at a temperature which does not
cause damage to the laundry.
Clean the door filter after each drying cycle (see paragraph CLEANING THE
Keep the surrounding area of the dryer free from lint.
Always set the programme knob to the Off-position “O” after programme
end, to reduce the risk that the dryer might be started accidentally.
Drying clothes with buckles or using dryer balls may impact the surface of
the drum.
• Before doing any maintenance, switch off the dryer and disconnect it from
the mains supply.
• Never use flammable fluids for cleaning the dryer.
• Do not use detergents containing solvents, scouring powder, glass or
general purpose cleaners. They might harm the surfaces.
Repairs and spare parts
• Repairs must only be done by our After-Sales service. Improper repairing can
lead to unpredictable dangers for the user and to damages on the dryer and
will moreover cause the loss of the guarantee.
• For repairs, only original spare parts are admitted, to assure proper
functioning of the dryer.
• For dryer models with drum light: Replacing the light bulb must only be
carried out by our After-Sales Service.
This appliance is destined to dry laundry which is marked to be appropriate for
being treated in a dryer, in quantities which are usual for private households.
• Observe the instructions given in these Instructions for Use and in the Quick
Reference Guide when using the dryer.
• Keep these Instructions for Use and the Quick Reference Guide; if you pass
on the dryer to another person, also give him/her Instructions for Use and
Quick Reference Guide.
For installing your dryer, you must observe the instructions of chapter SAFE INSTALLATION AND USE.
• Carefully level the dryer by adjusting the four feet; check the correct leveling with a level.
• Before running the first drying cycle, ensure that the water container is fully pushed inside and that
the bottom filter is correctly positioned (see chapter DESCRIPTION OF THE DRYER).
• Also make sure that all hoses of the drainage system are connected as shown in the picture below.
If possible you can drain the water directly into the domestic plumbing system. This will avoid having to
empty the water container at the end of each drying cycle since the condensation water can be directly
drained away (see chapter DRAINAGE SYSTEM).

Energy saving tips
The programme which is the most energy-efficient for drying normal wet cotton laundry is
specified in the separate Quick Reference Guide; it is the reference programme for the Energy Label.
Your dryer is designed to save energy. After the end of a programme the dryer will therefore switch
off after a short time. When a programme is selected but not yet started, the dryer will switch off
after a few minutes.
Always dry a full load: depending on the type of laundry and the programme/drying time. For
detailed information, refer to the separate Quick Reference Guide.
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.
Do not overdry the laundry.
