If you are going to install the
appliance under a work
counter be sure to leave a
10 mm space between the
top and any other objects on
or above the machine and a
15 mm
15 mm
15 mm space between the
sides and any kitchen units
or walls to ensure proper air circulation. The
dryer must never be installed behind a lockable
door, a sliding door or a door with a hinge on the
opposite side to that of the dryer door.
The appliance must be installed with the rear
surface placed against a wall.
When the dryer is in use there has to be adequate
ventilation to avoid the back flow of gases into
the room from appliances burning other fuels,
including open fires. The vent tube should not exceed 2.4
metres in length. The tube should be kept clear of the air intake
vent and kinks or ‘U’ bends must be avoided as these will obstruct
the tube and trap condensation.
Air intake vent
Do not block or obstruct
Caution: Hot!
Vent Tube fitted here
Wall mounting
Keep the tube as short and as straight
as possible to prevent condensation
forming in the vent pipe.
The duct in the wall should slope
slightly downwards.
Window mounting
The hole in the window should be as
low down as possible and the tube should be kept as short as
possible.Depending on how often you use your tumble dryer, it is
essential that areas A and B are checked periodically to remove
lint or debris.
Open window venting
The end of the tube should be
directed downwards, to prevent
warm moist air from condensing in
the room or dryer.
Do not discharge exhaust
air into a flue which is used
for exhaust fumes from
other appliances that burn gas or other fuels.
Do not discharge exhaust air into an extraction system or any duct
with an extractor fan. This will affect the way the thermal controls
operate and can result in a fire hazard.
The socket must be grounded. The power supply
cord should be checked periodically. If the
supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by
the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly
qualified persons in order to avoid a hazar
The dryer must be installed level for
correct operation. When you have
installed your dryer in its final location
check that it is first level side to side and
then back to front.
If the dryer is not level use a wooden
block to support it while adjusting the
two front legs up or down until your dryer is level.
Once you have installed your dryer and before you
use it clean the inside of the drum to remove any
dust that could have accumulated during transport.
Step 1
Open the door of your dryer
Step 2
Pull out the filter (using the
two finger grips)
Step 3
Clean the fluff off the filter
and replace it correctly.
Ensure that the filter is
pushed fully home.
Step 4
Make sure the filter is pushed fully home
NEVER run the dryer without the filter in position
Failure to clean the filter after EVERY drying
cycle will affect the drying performance of your
machine. It will take longer to dry and as a result
will use more electricity during drying.
At least every two or three months you MUST
clean fluff build up around the filter housing and
the vent tube.
Check the vent tube and any permanent venting fixture to make sure that there has been no
accumulation of fluff or lint. Remove lint that collects around the filter and the outlet vents.

To minimise the risk of fire in your tumble
dryer, the following should be observed:
Tumble dry items only if they have been washed
with detergent and water, rinsed and been
through the spin cycle. It is a fire hazard to dry
items that HAVE NOT been washed with water.
Do not dry garments that have been treated with
chemical products.
Do not tumble dry items that have been spotted
or soaked with vegetable or cooking oils, this
constitutes a fire hazard. Oil-affected items can
ignite spontaneously,especially when exposed to
heat sources such as a tumble dryer. The items
become warm, causing an oxidisation reaction
with the oil, Oxidisation creates heat. If the heat
cannot escape, items can become hot enough to
catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil-effected
items can prevent heat from escaping and so
create a fire hazard.If it is unavoidable that fabrics
containing vegetable or cooking oil or those that
have been contaminated with hair care products
be placed in a tumble dryer they should first be
washed with extra detergent - this will reduce,
but not eliminate the hazard. They should not
be removed from the dryer and piled or stacked
while hot.
Do not tumble dry items that have previously
been cleaned in or washed in, soaked in or
soiled with petrol/gasoline, dry cleaning solvents
or other flammable or explosive substances.
Highly flammable substances commonly used
in domestic environments including cooking
oil, acetone, denatured alcohol, kerosene, spot
removers, turpentine, waxes and wax removers.
Ensure these items have been washed in hot
water with an extra amount of detergent before
being dried in the tumble dryer.
Do not tumble dry items containing foam rubber
(also known as latex foam), or similarly textured
rubber like materials. Foam rubber materials
can, when heated, produce fire by spontaneous
Fabric softener or similar products should not be
used in a tumble dryer to eliminate the effects of
static electricity unless the practice is specifically
recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric
softener product.
Do not tumble dry undergarments that contain
metal reinforcements eg. bras with metal
reinforcing wires. Damage to the tumble dryer
can result if the metal reinforcements come loose
during drying.
Do not tumble dry rubber, plastic articles such
as shower caps or babies waterproof covers,
polythene or paper.
Do not tumble dry rubber backed articles, clothes
fitted with foam rubber pads, pillows, galoshes
and rubber coated tennis shoes.
Remove all objects from pockets such as lighters
and matches.
WARNING: Never stop the dryer before the end
of the drying cycle unless all items are quickly
removed and spread out so that the heat is

As part of our continual commitment towards environmental
protection, we reserve the right to use recycled quality
components to reduce costs for our customers and to minimise
materials wastage.
• Disposing of the packaging materials: follow local regulations to
allow for recycling of packaging materials.
• In order to minimise the risk of injury to children, remove the
door and plug, then cut the power supply cord flush with the
appliance. Dispose of these parts separately to prevent the
appliance from being connected to a power supply socket.
Wring out all items to eliminate excess water before tumble
drying (if you use a washing machine first, select a high spin
cycle). Doing this will save time and energy during drying.
Always dry full loads - you save energy: single items or small
loads take longer to dry. Clean the filter after each use to contain
energy consumption costs
