Help to keep your country tidy! Tips for environmental protection • 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 finishdry the rest of the load. 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. • Clean the filters regularly to avoid excessive drying times and high electricity consumption. • 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. • Ventilate the room well. The room temperature should not exceed +35°C during drying. 5 ENGLISH Disposal 125980962 -gb.qxp 4/5/2006 1:26 PM Page 6 Description of the appliance 01 Control panel 02 Fluff filters 03 Rating Plate 04 Adjustable feet 1 2 3 2 4 05 Side vent outlets 06 Ring nut 07 Rear vent outlet 7 6 5 6 125980962 -gb.qxp 4/5/2006 1:26 PM Page 7 Warning! The feet must never be removed. Do not restrict the floor clearance through deeppile carpets, strips of wood or similar. This might cause heat build-up which would interfere with the operation of the appliance. Unpacking Slide out the polythene bag with the polystyrene stuffing before using the appliance Pull off adhesive strips from inside machine on top of drum. 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. P1106 Positioning A 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.). 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). 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. P1056 P0046 7 B ENGLISH Installation 125980962 -gb.qxp 4/5/2006 1:26 PM Page 8 Electrical connection 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. This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 V, single-phase, 50 Hz supply. Check that your domestic electrical installation can take the maximum load required, also taking into account any other appliances in use. Connect the machine to an earthed socket, in accordance with current wiring regulations. 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. The manufacturer declines any responsibility for damage or injury through failure to comply with the above safety precaution. The plug must still be accessible after the appliance has been installed. Stacking kit A special stacking kit is available through your dealer, to enable the mounting of the dryer on top of your washing machine. 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. P1107 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. Door reversal To make it easier to load or unload the laundry the door can be reversed. This operation must be carried out by qualified personnel. If the hose is completely squashed, the safety cut-outs with which the machine is fitted may operate. Please contact the nearest Electrolux Service Centre. 8 125980962 -gb.qxp 4/5/2006 1:26 PM Page 9 ENGLISH Use The control panel 1 Programme chart 6 Start button - “START” This will help you to select the correct programme for drying.

If you do not remove the laundry, the dryer will stop automatically at the end of the anti-creasing phase. Light flashes and the mains-ON light stays on. 12 4/5/2006 1:26 PM Page 13 • Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured fluffy items such as towels as they could attract the fluff. Useful hints • The laundry must be thoroughly spun before tumble drying. • Try to load to the maximum capacity of the machine as small loads are uneconomical. For information, here is a list of the average weights of some common laundry items. Sheet 700 - 1000 g Tablecloth • 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. 400 - 500 g Kitchen towel 70 - 120 g Table napkin 50 - 100 g Towelling hand towel Bathrobe • 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). • 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. 150 - 250 g 1000 - 1500 g • 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. Man’s shirt 200 - 300 g Pillowcase 100 - 200 g • Remove the laundry when the dryer has finished drying. Man’s pyjamas 400 - 500 g Ladies’ nightdress 200 - 250 g • If individual items are still damp after drying, set a brief post-drying time, but at least 30 minutes. This will be necessary particularly for multilayered items (e.g. collars, pockets, etc.). • Never tumble dry the following: Particularly delicate items such as net curtains, woollen, silk, fabrics with metal trim, nylon tights, bulky materials such as anoraks, blankets, eiderdowns, sleeping bags, feather quilts and any items containing rubber foam or materials similar to rubber foam. • Always follow the instructions on garment labels: may be tumble dried normal drying (high temperature) delicate drying (low temperature) do not tumble dry • 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. 13 ENGLISH 125980962 -gb.qxp 125980962 -gb.qxp 4/5/2006 1:26 PM Page 14 Maintenance and Cleaning You must disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply, before you can carry out any cleaning or maintenance work. If necessary the filters can be cleaned under running water using a brush. In this case remove the filter in the door opening as per picture (it can be positioned with the tooth facing to the left or to the right).
