Safety Information
In the interest of your safety and to ensure
the correct use, before installing and first
using the appliance, read this user manual
carefully, including its hints and warnings.
To avoid unnecessary mistakes and accidents,
it is important to ensure that all people using
the appliance are thoroughly familiar with
its operation and safety features. Save these
instructions and make sure that they remain
with the appliance if it is moved or sold, so
that everyone using it through its life will be
properly informed on appliance use and safety.
General safety
• It is dangerous to alter the specifications or
attempt to modify this product in any way.
• This appliance is not intended for use by
persons (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities,
or lack of experience and knowledge,
unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance
by a person responsible for their safety.
• Make sure that small pets do not climb into
the drum. To avoid this, please check into
the drum before using.
• Any objects such as coins, safety pins, nails,
screws, stones or any other hard, sharp
material can cause extensive damage and
must not be placed into the machine.
• In order to avoid danger of fires caused by
excessive drying, do not use appliance to
dry the following items: Cushions, quilts
and the like (these items accumulate heat).
• Items such as foam rubber (latex foam),
shower caps, waterproof textiles, rubber
backed articles and clothes or pillows fitted
with foam rubber pads should not be dried
in the tumble dryer.
• Always unplug the appliance after use,
cleaning and maintenance.
• Under no circumstances should you attempt
to repair the machine yourself. Repairs
carried out by inexperienced persons may
cause injury or serious malfunctioning.
Contact your local Service Centre.
Always insist on genuine spare parts.
EMAN_EDC4713OW_Feb09.indd 4
• O
il-affected items can ignite spontaneously,
especially when exposed to heat sources
such as in a tumble dryer. The items become
warm, causing an oxidation reaction in
the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat
can not escape, the items can become
hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking
or storing oil-affected items can prevent
heat from escaping and so create a fire
hazard. If it is unavoidable that fabrics that
contain vegetable or cooking oil or have
been contaminated by hair care products,
acetone, alcohol, petrol, kerosene, spot
removers, turpentine, waxes and wax
removers should be washed in hot water
with an extra amount of detergent before
being dried in the tumble dryer.
• Danger of explosion: Never tumble
dry items that have been in contact with
flammable solvents (petrol, methylated
spirits, dry cleaning fluid and the like),
as these substances are volatile and
could cause an explosion. Only tumble
dry items washed with water.
• Risk of fire: items that have been spotted
or soaked with vegetable or cooking oil
constitute a fire hazard and should not be
placed in the tumble dryer.
• If you have washed your laundry with stain
remover you must execute an extra rinse
cycle before loading your tumble dryer.
• Please make sure that no gas lighters or
matches have accidentally been left in pockets
of garments to be loaded into the appliance.
• The final part of a tumble dryer cycle occurs
without heat (cool down cycle) so that the
items are left at a temperature which ensures
they will not be damaged.
Never stop a tumble dryer before the end
of the drying cycle unless all items are
quickly removed and spread out so that
the heat is dissipated.

Drying hints
Before loading the laundry
Never tumble dry the following: Particularly
delicate items such as net curtains, woollens,
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
• C
lose 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 fluff.
• The laundry must be thoroughly spun before
tumble drying.
• Easy-care items, e.g. shirts, should be
briefly pre-spun before drying (depending
on crease resistance approx. 30 seconds
or using the special brief spin program 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.
• Remove the laundry when the dryer has
finished drying.
• If individual items are still damp after drying,
set a brief post-drying time, (at least 30
minutes). This will be necessary particularly for
multilayered items (e.g. collars, pockets, etc.).
EMAN_EDC4713OW_Feb09.indd 10
Make sure that no metal objects are left in
the laundry (e.g. hair clips, safety pins, pins).
Button up pillowcases, close zip fasteners,
and hooks. Tie any belts or long tapes.
To avoid laundry becoming tangled: close zips,
button up duvet covers and tie loose ties or
ribbons (e.g. of aprons).
Turn items with double-layered fabrics inside
out (e.g. with cotton lined anoraks, the cotton
layer should be outermost). These fabrics will
then dry better.
Maximum loads
Recommended loads are indicated in the
program charts.
General rules:
Cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed;
Synthetics: drum no more than half full;
Delicate fabrics and woollens: drum no
more than one third full.
Try to load to the maximum capacity of the
machine as small loads are uneconomical.

12 care and cleaning electrolux
Care 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, dilutents
or similar products.
Cleaning the door
Periodically clean the interior part of the door to
remove any fluff from the seals around the filter.
Accurate cleaning ensures correct drying.
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
unnoticed in the air. In a tumble dryer it simply
collects in the filter.
After a while, a whitish film due to detergent
residue on laundry forms on the filters. When
this occurs, clean the filters with warm water
using a brush. Remove the filter in the door
opening as per picture below (it can be
positioned with the tooth facing to the left
or to the right).
Cleaning the filters
Your dryer will only function well if the filters
are clean. The filters collect all the fluff which
accumulates during drying and they must therefore
be cleaned at the end of each program, before
removing the laundry, with a damp cloth. The light
Filter is on to remind you of this operation.
The filter in the inner door must be
removed for cleaning.
EMAN_EDC4713OW_Feb09.indd 12
16/3/09 11:26:47 AM
electrolux care and cleaning 13
Do not use the appliance without filters.
Cleaning the condenser unit
Clean the condenser when the light
Condenser comes on.
The condenser is situated at the lower part of
the cabinet behind a small door. To open the
door, push the catch as per picture above.
During the drying cycle or at the end, it is
normal for water to be present on the surface
of the condenser unit.
To pull out the condenser, first turn the two
red stops downwards and then remove the
condenser unit holding it at the handle.
Clean it with a brush and rinse it under the
shower if necessary.
Also clean the outside, removing all fluff.
Clean the rubber seal round the condenser
cabinet and in the inner part of the small door
with a damp cloth.
Important! Do not use pointed objects
or utensils to clean the spaces between
the plates, as this could damage the
condenser and make it permeable.
Re-fit the condenser, turn the red stops
upwards and close the door.
Do not use this appliance if the condenser
has not been fitted.

14 care and cleaning electrolux
Care and cleaning
Emptying the water tank
Water extracted from the laundry condenses
inside the machine and is collected in a tank.
The tank must be emptied after each drying
cycle to ensure efficient operation when the
machine is next used. The light Water Tank
reminds you of this operation.
Proceed as follows:
• Open the small door at the lower part
of the cabinet
• Turn the yellow stops upwards
• Pull out the tank
• Open the small cover and empty the water
out of the container
• Close the small cover and correctly re-insert
the tank
• Push the container in until it clicks, then turn
the yellow stops downwards to lock it firmly
into place
• Close the small door and press the START/
PAUSE button again to allow the program
to continue.
The tank must be re-inserted correctly.
After emptying and inserting the tank the Start/
Pause button has to be depressed again to
allow the program to continue.
Handy tip: The condensed water may be used
in a steam iron or to top up a battery, etc. In this
case it must be filtered (e.g. through a coffee filter).
Cleaning the air intake grille
Using a vacuum cleaner remove the fluff from
the air intake grille at the back of the appliance.
Cleaning the drum
When your laundry does not reach the desired
degree of dryness, in other words, when it turns
out either too dry or too damp, we advise you
to clean the inside of the drum with a cloth
soaked with vinegar.
This will eliminate the slight film that has formed
in the drum (due to residues of detergent and
softeners used in the washing, and from the
lime contained in the water), which prevents
the probes from detecting the correct degree
of dryness.

Pull off the adhesive strips from the top of drum
inside the machine.
Please Note: If this appliance is supplied
from a cord extension set or electrical
portable outlet device it must be positioned
so that it is not subject to splashing or
ingress of moisture.
Technical data
The tumble dryer must not be installed
behind a lockable door, a sliding door or a
door with a hinge on the opposite side to that
of the tumble dryer in such a way that a full
opening of a tumble dryer door is restricted.
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 around
the appliance. Do not obstruct the front
ventilation 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.
16/3/09 11:26:51 AM
electrolux installation 17
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 through deep pile carpets,
strips of wood or similar. This might cause
heat build-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.
The manufacturer declines any responsibility
for damage or injury through failure to
comply with the above safety precaution.
Should the appliance power supply cable
need to be replaced, this must be carried
out by our Service Centre.
The power supply cable must be
accessible after installing the machine.
Stacking kit
A special stacking kit is available through your
dealer, to enable the mounting of the dyer on
top of a front loading washing machine which
cover’s a depth between 48 and 60cm.
Read carefully the instructions supplied with the kit.
Electrical connection
This machine is designed to operate on a
230-240V, single-phase, 50Hz supply. Check
that your domestic electrical installation can
take the maximum load required, also taking
into account any other appliances in use.

Ecological hints
The materials marked with the symbol
are recyclable.
This means that they can be recycled by
disposing of them properly in appropriate
collection containers.
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 program
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 program for iron-dry,
remove the iron-dry items at the end of the
program and then finish-dry the rest of the load.
• Clean the filters regularly to avoid excessive
drying times and high electricity consumption.
• Ventilate the room well. The room temperature
should not exceed +35°C during drying.
• Regularly clean the air intake.

The Thoughtful Design Innovator.
Do you remember the last time you opened a gift that made you say
“Oh! How did you know? That’s exactly what I wanted!” That’s the kind of
feeling that the designers at Electrolux seek to evoke in everyone who chooses
or uses one of our products. We devote time, knowledge, and a great deal of
thought to anticipating and creating the kind of appliances that our customers
really need and want.
This kind of thoughtful care means innovating with insight. Not design for
design’s sake, but design for the user’s sake. For us, thoughtful design means
making appliances easier to use and tasks more enjoyable to perform, freeing
our customers to experience the ultimate 21st century luxury: ease of mind.
Our aim is to make this ease of mind more available to more people in more
parts of their everyday lives, all over the world. The “Thinking of you” promise from Electrolux goes beyond meeting the needs
of today’s consumers. It also means we’re committed to making appliances
safe for the environment—now and for future generations.
Electrolux. Thinking of you.
