Spin the laundry before drying.
The drier the laundry, the shorter
the drying time will be, thus
consuming less energy.
Load the dryer with the maximum
load.
Note: Do not exceed the maximum
load for the programs, as this
prolongs the drying time
and increases energy consumption.
Ventilate the room and keep the air
inlet on the dryer free to ensure air
exchange.
Clean the fluff filter after each drying
cycle. If the fluff filter is dirty,
the drying time is prolonged
and energy consumption is
increased.
Energy saving mode: If the dryer is
not operated for a prolonged period,
it automatically switches off before
the program starts and when
the program has ended to save
energy. The display panel
and indicator lamps go off after
a few minutes and the Start button
flashes. To activate the lighting,
press any button, open or close
the dryer door or turn the program
selector.

Preparing the laundry
Laundry
: Warning
Risk of explosion/fire!
Remove any cigarette lighters and
matches from pockets.
Caution!
The dryer drum and fabrics could be
damaged.
Remove all objects from pockets and
observe the following information:
■
Tie cloth belts, apron strings, etc.
together or use a laundry bag.
■
Close zips, hooks and eyelets and
buttons. Button up large items of
laundry, such as covers.
■
Remove any metal objects, such as
paper clips, from pockets.
■
To ensure a consistent drying result,
sort laundry by fabric type and
drying programme.
■
Always dry very small items of
laundry, e.g. babies' socks, together
with large items such as towels.
■
Knitted fabrics such as T-shirts and
jerseys often shrink the first time they
are tumble-dried. Use a gentle
programme.
■
Do not overdry easy-care laundry.
This increases creasing of the
laundry.
■
Use timed programmes for single
garments.
■
Some detergents and care products,
e.g. starch or softeners, contain
particles which may be deposited on
the moisture sensor. This may impair
the sensor function and in
consequence the drying result.
Notes
– When washing laundry to be
tumble-dried, use the correct
amount of detergent and care
products as specified in the
manufacturer's instructions.
– Clean the moisture sensor
regularly ~ Page 45.

Do not tumble-dry
Note: Do not load laundry from the
washing machine directly into the
tumble dryer. Sort the spun laundry
before placing it in the dryer drum.
If you dry thin, thick and multi-layer
fabrics together, they will dry to differing
degrees. To achieve an even drying
result, you should therefore only dry
together laundry of the same type of
fabric and structure. If you feel that the
laundry is still too damp, you can select
a timed programme for subsequent
drying ~ Page 30.
Caution!
Possibility of material damage to the
dryer or laundry.
Do not tumble-dry the following
fabrics:
■
Laundry contaminated with oil.

reduce energy consumption and the
drying time.

cycle:
5. Open both filters and remove all the
fluff.
6. Rinse away the fluff under warm,
running water.
1. Open the dryer door and remove all
fluff from the door.

Noises
> Noises
Note: During drying, particularly in the
initial phase, operation of the appliance
results in noise from the compressor
and pump. This is perfectly normal and
does not impair proper functioning of
the appliance.
Noise
From time to time, the compressor in
the dryer generates a humming noise.
However, the volume may vary
depending on the programme and
progress of the drying process.
Every now and then, the compressor is
ventilated. This creates a whirring noise.
The automatic cleaning of the dryer
causes a clicking sound.
44
The condensation is pumped into
the condensate container by a pump.
This generates pumping noises.

: Warning
Risk of death!
There is a risk of electric shock as the
dryer is operated with electricity.
Disconnect the dryer from the mains
before cleaning.
Clean the dryer using only water and a
soft, damp cloth.
Remove all detergent residue, spray
residue or other residues immediately.
Do not use cleaning agents or agents
for pre-treating laundry (e.g. prewash
sprays, stain removers). Do not use
high-pressure cleaners or steam jet
cleaners to clean your appliance.

Cleaning the moisture sensor
Note: The dryer is equipped with a
stainless-steel moisture sensor. The
moisture sensor measures how damp
the laundry is.
After long periods of usage the moisture
sensor may become covered by a fine
layer of limescale or residues of
detergents and care products. Such
residues must be removed regularly as
the sensor function and in consequence
the drying result may be impaired.
Open the door and clean the moisture
sensor with a coarse sponge.
Caution!
Moisture sensor may be damaged.
Do not clean moisture sensors with
abrasives and steel wool.

Cleaning
Cleaning the filter
in the condensate container
Note: The filter in the condensate
container cleans the condensation
water that is used during the dryer's
automatic cleaning cycle.
1. Pull out the condensate container
horizontally.
2. Pour out the condensation water.
3. Remove the filter.
4. Clean the filter under warm, running
water or in the dishwasher.
5. Push in the filter until you feel it lock
into place.
Caution!
The dryer may be contaminated
with fluff and thus become
damaged.
Only operate the dryer with the filter
inserted.
6. Push in the condensate container
until you feel it lock into place.

Faults and what to do about them
Faults
Laundry is not dried
properly or is still too
damp.
Drying time too long?
Cause/remedy
After the programme has ended, warm laundry feels damper than it actually is.Spread the laundry out and allow the heat to disperse.
■
Fine tune the dryness level – this extends the drying time but does not
increase the temperature. Your laundry will become drier ~ Page 32.
■
Select a programme with a longer drying time or increase the dryness
level.This does not increase the temperature.
■
Select a timed programme to add extra drying time for laundry that is still
damp ~ Page 30.
■
If you have exceeded the maximum load for the programme, the laundry
may not be dried properly.
■
Clean the moisture sensor in the drum. The sensor may become covered in
a fine layer of limescale or detergent and care product residue, which then
impairs its performance. This prevents your laundry from being dried properly ~ Page 45.
■
Drying has stopped as a result of a power cut, because the condensation
container is full or because the maximum drying time has been exceeded.
Note: See also the laundry tips ~ Page 29.
■
■
■
■
■
The fluff filter may be clogged, which will make the drying time
longer.Clean the fluff filter.
If the air inlet on the dryer is blocked or not freely accessible, this may
increase the drying time. Make sure that the air inlet remains unobstructed.
The optimum ambient temperature for drying is between 15 °C and 30
°C.Outside of this range, the drying time may increase.
Insufficient air circulation in the room may increase the drying time. Ventilate the room.
Display panel goes out Not a fault. Energy-saving mode is active ~ Page 13.

Residual water in the
condensation container
despite the dryer being
connected to the condensation drain*.
Not a fault. If the condensation drain is installed, residual water remains in the
condensation container due to the dryer's self-cleaning function.
Humidity in the room is
increasing.
Not a fault. Make sure the room is adequately ventilated.
Power cut.
The drying programme is stopped. Remove the laundry and spread it out or
restart the programme.
Unusual noises when
drying.
Not a fault. Noises are produced by the automatic cleaning of the heat
exchanger ~ Page 44.
The dryer feels cold
despite drying.
Not a fault. The dryer can dry effectively at low temperatures using a heat pump.

Note: If you cannot rectify the fault yourself by turning the dryer off and then on
again, please contact our after-sales service.
