Environmental tips
• In the dryer, laundry becomes fluffy and soft.
Fabric softeners are not therefore needed
when washing.
• Your dryer will function most economically if
– Always keep the ventilation slots on the
base of the dryer unobstructed;
– Use the loading volumes specified in the
programme overview;
– Ensure you have good ventilation in the installation room;
– Clean the micro-fine filter and fine strainer
after each drying cycle;
– Spin the laundry well before drying.
Energy consumption depends on spinning
speed set in washing machine. Higher
spinning speed - lower energy consumption.
Environmental information
The packaging materials are environmentally
friendly and can be recycled. The plastic components are identified by markings, e.g. >PE<,
>PS<, etc. Please dispose of the packaging
materials in the appropriate container at the
community waste disposal facilities.
Warning! When the unit is no longer
being used:
• Pull the plug out of the socket.
• Cut off the cable and plug and dispose of
• Dispose of the door catch. This prevents
children from trapping themselves inside and
endangering their lives.
Important! The appliance must be moved in
vertical position for transport.
Appliance positioning
• It is recommended that, for your convenience, the machine is positioned close to
your washing machine.
• The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean
place, where dirt does not build up.
• Air must be able to circulate freely all round
the appliance. Do not obstruct the front ven-
tilation grille or the air intake grilles at the
back of the machine.
• 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.
• The feet must never be removed. Do not restrict the floor clearance by using deep pile
carpets, strips of wood or similar. This might
cause heat built-up which would interfere
with the operation of the appliance.
• The hot air emitted by the tumble dryer can
reach temperatures of up to 60°C. The appliance must therefore not be installed on
floors which are not resistant to high temperatures.
• When operating the tumble dryer, the room
temperature must not be lower than +5°C
and higher than +35°C, as it may affect the
performance of the appliance.
• Should the appliance be moved, it must be
transported vertically.
• The appliance must not be installed behind
the lockable door, a sliding door a door with
a hinge on the opposite side to that of the
