Tips for environmental protection
Tips for environmental protection
To save energy and to help protect the environment, we recommend that you
follow these hints:
• Try to load the maximum capacity of the machine as small loads are
uneconomical.
• Always load well spun laundry. The higher the spin speed, the lower the
electricity consumption and the shorter the drying times.
• Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids creasing and saves energy.
Select the drying programme according to the type of laundry and the
required degree of dryness.
• To utilize the maximum load, laundry which is to be dried ready to put away
(store dry) can be dried together with items to be ironed. To do this, select
the programme for iron-dry, remove the iron-dry items at the end of the programme and then finish-dry the rest of the load.
• Clean the filter regularly to avoid excessive drying times and high electricity
consumption.
• Ventilate the room well. The room temperature should not exceed +35°C
during drying

Positioning
It is recommended that, for your convenience, the machine is positioned
close to your washing machine.
Whilst drying, the tumble dryer will expel a certain amount of warm, very
moist air, and this should be removed from the room as quickly as possible to
prevent condensation. In an extremely well ventilated room or close to an
open window, this may occur naturally.
However, in general, it is better to carry the dryer's exhaust outside via the
100 mm diameter flexible hose supplied with the appliance; ending either
temporarily at an open window, or permanently at a fixed ventilation grille, fitted to an exterior wall or window.
The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean place, where dirt does not build
up.
Make sure there are no obstructing items or material near the air-intake louvres provided at
the back (e.g. paper, rags etc.).
To keep vibration and noise to a minimum when the dryer is in use, it should
be placed on a firm, level surface.
Once in its permanent operating position,
check that the dryer is absolutely level with
the aid of a spirit level. If it is not, raise or
lower the feet until it is
P0046
The feet must never be removed.
Do not restrict the floor clearance through deep-pile carpets, strips of
wood or similar. This might cause heat build-up which would interfere
with the operation of the appliance.
Important
When operating the tumble dryer, the room temperature must not exceed
35°C, as it may affect the performance of the appliance.

Fitting the vent hose
To simplify the installation, there is a choice of vent outlets: one at the back,
the others in the left and right-hand side.
Connect the hose to whichever is the more convenient by pulling the ring nut
(A) from the vent outlet at the back, screwing it on to the hose and pushing it
firmly back into place.
The unused vents should now be sealed with the special snap covers provided.
A
P1028
A
P1027
Advice: If the hose is long and the room temperature low, the moisture might
condense to water inside the hose. This is an unavoidable natural phenomenon. To prevent this water from Iying in the hose or flowing back into
the tumble dryer, it is advisable to drill a small hole (dia.
3 mm) in the lowest point of the hose and to place a small container below
it.(See picture, point B).
P1056
B
Once connected to the dryer, run the vent hose to the desired outlet point,
ensuring that the run’s overall length is less than 2 m, and that it contains no
more than two bends. As to the outlet itself, if you have decided on a fixed
wall/window grille, a good local builder’s merchant should be able to supply
you with the necessary fittings and installation advice.

Installation
It is important not to connect the vent hose to, for example, a
cooker hood, or a chimney or flue pipe designed to carry the
exhaust from a fuel burning appliance.
P0055
Note that to avoid condensation problems, it is essential that the dryer be fitted with the flexible hose to carry its “exhaust” at least beyond the kitchen
units; preferable outside the kitchen.
In order to prevent the appliance from overheating, it is important that the
steam exhaust is unobstructed.
Therefore, in case of a permanent hose fitted to an exterior wall or ceiling, it
must be ensured an exhaust capacity of at least 150 m3/h.
If the dryer is fitted next to kitchen units, make sure that the vent hose
is not squashed. If the hose is partially squashed, drying efficiency will
be reduced, resulting in longer drying times and higher energy consumption.
If the hose is completely squashed, the safety cut-outs with which the
machine is fitted may operate.

Use
• Close pillowcases and covers with fasteners to prevent small laundry items
getting tangled inside them. Close press studs, zips and hooks and tie belts
and apron strings.
• Sort laundry according to type and degree of drying required.
• Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids creasing and saves energy.
• Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured fluffy items such as towels as
they could attract the fluff.
• The laundry must be thoroughly spun before tumble drying.
• Easy-care items, too, e.g. shirts, should be briefly pre-spun before drying
(depending on crease resistance approx. 30 seconds or using the special
brief spin programme of your washing machine).
• Knitted textiles (knitted underwear) may shrink a little during drying. Please
do not overdry items of this type. It is advisable to allow for shrinkage when
choosing the size of new purchases.
• You can also put starched items into your dryer. However, to achieve the
desired starched effect, choose the programme “iron dry”. To remove any
starch residues, wipe out the internal drum after drying with a moist cloth
and then rub it dry.
• To avoid a static charge when drying is completed, use either a fabric softener when you are washing the laundry or a fabric conditioner specifically
for tumble dryers.
• Remove the laundry when the dryer has finished drying.
• If individual items are still damp after drying, set a brief post-drying time, but
at least 20 minutes. This will be necessary particularly for multilayered
items (e.g. collars, pockets, etc.).

Maintenance and Cleaning
Maintenance and Cleaning
You must disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply, before you
can carry out any cleaning or maintenance work.
External cleaning
Use only soap and water and then dry thoroughly.
Important: do not use methylated spirit, diluents or similar products.
Cleaning the door
Clean periodically the interior part of the door to remove any fluff.
Accurate cleaning ensures correct drying.
P0328
Cleaning the filter
Your dryer will only function well if the filter is clean.
The filter collects all the fluff which accumulates during drying and it must
therefore be cleaned at the end of each programme before removing the
laundry with a damp cloth.
P0767
The filter cannot be removed.
Do not be alarmed by the amount of fluff. It is not due to excessive wear
caused by the dryer. All fabric loses fluff when drying but it goes un-noticed in
the air. In a tumble dryer it simply collects in the filter.
