Sorting and preparing laundry
Sorting laundry
• Sort by fabric type:
– Cotton/linen for programmes in COTTONS BAUMWOLLE pogramme group.
– Mixtures and synthetics for programmes in SYNTHETICS MISCHGEWEBE programme group.
• Sorting by care label. The care labels mean:
Drying in the tumble
dryer possible in principle
Drying at normal
temperature
Drying at reduced
temperature
Drying in the tumble
dryer not possible
Do not place in the appliance any wet laundry which is not specified on the care
label as being suitable for tumble-drying.
This appliance can be used for all wet laundry items which are labelled as suitable
for tumble-drying.
• Do not dry new, coloured textiles together with light-coloured laundry items.
Textile colours may bleed.
• Do not dry cotton jersey and knitwear with the EXTRA programme. Items may
shrink!
• Wool and wool-like textiles can be dried using the WOOL WOLLE programme.
Before the drying cycle spin the woollen textiles as well as possible (max. 1200
rpm). Only dry woollen textiles together which are similar or the same with repect
to material, colour and weight. Please dry heavy laundry items made of wool
separately.
Preparing laundry
• To avoid laundry becoming tangled: close zips, button up duvet covers and tie
loose ties or ribbons (e.g. of aprons).
• Empty pockets. Remove metal items (paper clips, safety pins, etc).
• 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.

Emptying the condensate tank
Empty condensate tank after every drying cycle.
If the condensate tank is full, an active programme will break off automatically
and the EMPTY CONTAINER icon on the display will light up. In order to continue
the programme, the condensate tank must first be emptied.
WARNING!
The condensate is not suitable for drinking or for preparing foodstuffs.

2. Pour condensed water out into a basin or similar receptacle.
3. Slide outlet connections in and refit
condensate tank.
If the programme has been interrupted as a result of the condensate tank
being full: Press the START PAUSE
button to continue the drying cycle.
The condensate tank has a volume of approx. 4 litres. This is sufficient for around
7 kg of laundry which has previously been spun at 1000 revolutions/ minute.
The condensate can be used as distilled water, e.g. for steam ironing. However first
filter the condensate (e.g. with a coffee filter) to remove any residue and small
pieces of fluff.
Cleaning heat exchanger filter
If the indicator CLEAN BASE FILTER lights up, the heat exchanger filter in the
base of the appliance must be cleaned.
24
Care and cleaning
To protect the heat pump from dirt, the dryer is fitted with fluff filter, which is
located in the filter housing. Here too large amounts of fluff build up over time,
which affect the function of the appliance.
• Operating when the fluff filter is clogged with fluff can damage the dryer. This
also increases energy consumption.
• Never operate the dryer without the fluff filters.
• Do not use the dryer without the fluff filter. A dirty heat pump requires more
energy and can only be cleaned up by means of a costly process.

Care and cleaning
Cleaning the drum
CAUTION!
Do not use abrasives or steel wool to clean the drum.
Lime in the water or cleaning agents may form a barely visible lining on the inside
of the drum. The degree to which the laundry has been dried is then no longer
detected reliably. The laundry is damper than expected when removed from the
dryer.
Use a standard domestic cleaner (e.g. vinegar-based cleaner) to wipe down the
inside of the drum and drum ribs.
Clean operating screen and housing
CAUTION!
Do not use furniture cleaners or aggressive cleaning agents to clean the machine.

Changing the bulb for interior lighting
Only use a special bulb which is designed specially for dryers. The special bulb can
be obtained from the Customer Care Department, part no. 11255200.
When the appliance is switched on, the interior lighting switches itself off after 4
minutes when the door is open.
WARNING!
Do not use standard bulbs! These develop too much heat and may damage the
machine!
WARNING!
Before replacing the bulb, disconnect the mains plug; with a permanent connection: fully unscrew or deactivate the fuse.
1. Unscrew cover above the bulb (this can be found directly behind the loading
aperture, at the top; refer to “Description of machine” section.)
2. Replace defective bulb.
3. Screw cover back down.
Check the correct positioning of o-ring gasket before screwing back the door light
cover. Do not operate the dryer when missing o-ring gasket on door light cover.
WARNING!
For safety reasons, the cover must be screwed down tightly. If this is not done, the
dryer must not be operated.

cotton cycle with nominal load.
• Energy consumption (corrected with final humidity) during the cupboard dry
cotton cycle with half load.
• Final humidity (during Cupboard dry cotton, Iron dry cotton and Cupboard dry

• Condensation efficiency (corrected with final humidity) during cupboard dry
cotton cycle with nominal and half load
All the cycles have to be checked in accordance with IEC 61121 (Tumble dryers for
household use – Methods for measuring the performance).

Installation
Transporting the appliance
Only tip the appliance on its left side to transport (see illustration), if it cannot be transported in an upright position.
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 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.
• 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
deeppile carpets, strips of wood or similar. This might cause heat built-up which
would interfere with the operation of the appliance.
34
Installation
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.
WARNING!
Should the appliance be moved, it must be transported vertically.
WARNING!
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 appliance.
Removing transport safety packaging
CAUTION!
Before use all parts of the transport packaging must be removed.
1. Open loading door
2. Pull off adhesive strips from inside machine on top of drum.
3. Remove foil hose and polystyrene
padding from the machine.
Electrical connection
Details on mains voltage, type of current and the fuses required should be taken
from the type plate. The type plate is fitted near the loading aperture (see “Product
description” chapter).
Installation
35
Connect the machine to an earthed socket, in accordance with current wiring regulations.
WARNING!
The manufacturer declines any responsibility for damage or injury through
failure to comply with the above safety precautions.
Should the appliance power supply cable need to be replaced, this must be
carried out by our Service Center.
WARNING!
The power supply cable must be accessible after installing the machine.

Environment
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 you:
– 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. Example: Consumption data – depending
on spinning speed – for 7kg of laundry, dried using the COTTONS CUPBOARD
DRY programme.
