SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT TO BE READ AND OBSERVED
This dryer is suitable for
domestic use, not suitable for
the outdoor use.
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.
4
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.
If it is unavoidable that fabrics
that contain vegetable or
cooking oil or have been
contaminated by hair care
products be placed in a tumble
dryer they should first be
washed in hot water with extra
EN
detergent - this will reduce, but
not eliminate, the hazard.
WARNING
Never stop a 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 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.
or use gasoline or other
flammable materials in or near
the dryer: a fire may break out
if the dryer is inadvertently
switched on.

starting it, to acclimatize to the
environmental conditions of
the room.
Do not install your dryer where
it may be exposed to extreme
conditions, such as: poor
ventilation, high temperature
or below 5°C or above 35°C.
The dryer must not be installed
behind a lockable door, a
sliding door or a door with a
hinge on the opposite side to
that of the tumble dryer, in
such a way that a full opening
of the tumble dryer door is
restricted.
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 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).
When installing the dryer make
sure that the four feet are
stable and resting on the floor,
adjusting them as required,
and check that the dryer is
perfectly level using a spirit
level.
If possible use a hose to drain
the water directly into the
domestic plumbing system.
This will avoid having to empty
the water container at the end
5
of each drying cycle, since the
condensation water can be
directly drained away.
Take care not to install the
dryer on a deep-pile carpet.
A carpet must not obstruct the
openings in the base.
If, due to lack of space, the
dryer must be installed directly
next to a gas or coal stove, a
heat insulating plate (85 x 57 cm)
must be installed in between
and the side of the plate facing
the stove must be covered
with aluminium foil.
The dryer is not designed for
built-in installation.
The dryer can be installed
under a worktop, provided
that adequate ventilation of
the dryer is assured. Install a
ventilation grid (minimum 45
cm x 8 cm), in the rear part of
the worktop under which the
dryer is installed.

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.
