Install the dryer far from
gas ranges, stoves, radiators
or hobs as flames may
damage it. If the dryer is
installed below a worktop,
ensure there are 10 mm
15 mm
15 mm
between the upper panel of
the dryer and any objects
above it and 15 mm between
the sides of the machine
and the walls or furniture units adjacent to it. This
ensures adequate air circulation.The appliance
must be installed with the rear surface placed
against a wall.
! We do not recommend that the dryer is installed
in a cupboard but 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.
Priming the Water Collection System.
When your dryer is new, the water container will not collect water
until the system is primed. This will take 1 or 2 drying cycles. Once
primed it will collect water during every drying cycle.
Less than 1m
If the dryer is installed next to a drain the
water can be plumbed into this drain. This
does away with the need to empty the
water container. The height of the drain
must be less than 1m from the bottom of
the dryer. Remove the existing hose from
the dryer and connect it to the drain (if
required add an additional length of hose).
The socket must be grounded.
! The power cord must be regularly checked. 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 hazard.
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
You MUST clean the fluff from the condenser
EVERY month. Failure to clean the condenser
could cause premature failure of your dryer.
Remove the condenser unit regularly (at least
monthly) and clean off any fluff deposits.

Step 1
Open the condenser cover.
Step 2
Remove the condenser by turning
the 3 catches and
pulling the condenser
towards you. It is normal for some
residual water to be left in the
condenser unit.
Step 3
Flush the condenser
from the rear with water to remove
any fluff deposits.
Step 4
Replace the condenser unit and
make sure that all 3 catches are
closed and that the position arrows
on the front of the condenser are
pointing upwards.
You must clean the fluff filter after EVERY drying cycle.
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.
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
It will take longer to dry and as a result will use
more electricity during drying.
You MUST empty the water container after EVERY
drying cycle. Removing the water container:
Step 1 Pull the water container
towards you and remove it
completely from the dryer.
Step 2 Empty all the water in the
water container.
Step 3 Replace the water
container making sure that it is securely fixed.
! Failure to empty the water container will
cause the machine to stop heating and the
load may still be wet at the end of the drying
cycle. The ‘Empty Water’ light will tell you
that the water container needs to be emptied

To minimise the risk of fire in your
tumble dryer, the following should be
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
