1 Programme Chart
5 Drying Time Selector Dial
This will help you to select the correct time for drying.
The selector dial incorporates two drying cycles, one of up
to 150 minutes at a high temperature for cotton and linen,
and one of up to 100 minutes at a low temperature for
synthetic fabrics.
To set the machine to the selected time, turn the dial
clockwise until the time you want coincides exactly with
the pointer.
NEVER attempt to turn the dial in an anticlockwise
direction.
When selecting the drying time, you should remember that
it includes a 10 minute cooling phase (position
) on the
dial).
This phase should not be shortened, stopped or avoided, as
this could cause skin burns or damages to the laundry.
2 Half Heat Button
Press this button to reduce the temperature when drying
particularly delicate cotton or linen items.
In this case you should select a longer drying time.
On the programmes for synthetics the temperature is
automatically reduced.
Therefore it is not necessary to depress this button.
3 Fresh & Cool Button
By depressing this button the heat is cut off. This is
particularly useful to freshen the laundry (e.g. to remove a
persistent odour of moth-balls).
Additional drying
If at the end of the programme the laundry is still too
damp, set the dial for a further period of drying
(remembering to take into account the cooling period).
4 Mains-On Light
This lights up when the machine starts operating and goes
out at the end of the programme.

(1) Never overfill the drum (do not load large quilts, for example).
The laundry must be suitably spun in your washing machine before being placed in the tumble dryer (500rpm minimum).
Drying times vary according to:
- The type of laundry
- The size of the load
- The degree of spinning prior to drying
Drying times are given as a guide only. Experience will soon enable you to estimate the drying time needed for your usual
laundry loads.
Do not start by selecting a long drying time. It is better to determine the required degree of dryness by gradually increasing
the drying time.
For a mixed load (cotton and synthetics, for example) select the time for the most delicate fibres and increase it by 10
mins.

4. When drying is completed
The machine stops automatically, the mains-on light goes
out.
If the laundry is still too damp, select a further brief
drying time, bearing in mind that during the last 10
minutes the dryer carries out the cooling and anti-crease
treatment phase.
When the programme has finished you are advised to
unplug the appliance.
Clean the filter after every drying programme. A clean
filter ensures correct functioning of the appliance.
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.
●
Remove the laundry when the dryer has finished
drying.
●
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.
Laundry Shrinkage
Certain fabrics such as woollens and silks are generally
not suitable for tumble drying. Due to the structure of
some woollen garments which are recommended for
tumble drying, shrinking could still occur, but once the
garment is worn again, it should regain its shape.
Useful hints
●
●
Starched Laundry
Starched laundry can also be dried in the tumble dryer.
Make sure that the time selected is for iron dry. After
completion of the programme wipe out the drum with a
damp cloth and dry to remove any traces of starch.
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.

Maintenance and Cleaning
Cleaning the filter
Important
You must disconnect the appliance from the electricity
supply, before you can carry out any cleaning or
maintenance work.
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 with a damp cloth.
The filter cannot be removed.
It is perfectly normal for fluff to accumulate in the filter
during drying. In fact, even fabrics dried in the open air
lose their fibres, but we do not notice it.
External cleaning
Use only soap and water and then dry thoroughly.
From time to time, apply a little wax furniture cream with
a soft cloth.
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.

Installation
Positioning
Problems can be encountered in rooms fitted with a very
powerful central extractor fan. If you find that drying
times are too long, switch off the extractor or close its
grille whilst the tumble dryer is in use.
The appliance may be placed in any room, provided the
following precautions are taken.
The appliance expels hot, very moist air. The rest of the
house must be able to easily absorb this moisture.
Normally, absorption is only possible in houses where
there is very little humidity. Otherwise, the room must
have ventilation towards the outside; generally, an open
door or window is enough.
A highly effective solution is to simply poke the vent hose
through a window or skylight. This might however cause
problems in winter because the dryer will draw in very
cold (and often also very damp) air through the open
window, so increasing drying times and leading to very
high energy consumption.
The capacity of the venting circuit must be at least 150
m3/hour. Check that the air inlet and outlet vents are
unobstructed.
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 wlll be reduced,
resulting in longer drying times and higher energy
consumption.
The best way of evacuating the moisture is through a vent
hose to the outside of the building. Use the special 100
mm diameter flexible hose supplied with the appliance
connected to one of the air outlet vents with the collar
supplied.
The unused outlets must be covered.
Never connect the air vent hose into an existing discharge
pipe or duct, as this could be dangerous, might disturb
neighbours and could cause the dryer to malfunction.
If the hose is completely squashed, the safety cut-outs
with which the machine is fitted may operate.
Condensation discharge through
the vent hose
Condensation may be discharged either through a vent
outlet provided at the back or through the left or right side
outlet.
This product is supplied with a 2.50 metre vent hose,
although the maximum length of the vent hose may be:
4 metres with no bends, or 2 metres with 2 bends.
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 lying 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 A).
P0330
The vent hose collar is
placed in the rear vent outlet.
Remove the collar by pulling
it out of the vent outlet.
Screw the collar to the vent
hose.
Fit the hose into the required
vent outlet, and place vent
covers provided over the
unused outlets.
The vent hose must not
contain more than two bends
when it is placed in position
for operation.
A
P0751
Connect the other end of the hose to an opening in a door
or window. Fit a suitable shield or point the hose
downwards to prevent any rain water and wind from
getting in.
Rain and wind shields for placing over openings usually
consist of valves or movable flaps. Periodically check the
shield since strong winds and other factors (rust, dirt) can
sometimes prevent it from opening, so causing problems
with air venting.
P0279S
You should NOT connect
the flexible vent hose to, for
example, a chimney or flue
pipe designed to carry the
exhaust from a fuel burning
heating appliance.
If you use a rain shield, check that the openings in it are
large enough to allow air to escape. Openings which are
too small restrict the flow of air.

Door reversal
The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean place, where
dirt does not build up.
To make it easier to load or unload the laundry the door
can be reversed.
This operation must be carried out by qualified
personnel.
Make sure there are no
obstructing items or
material near the air-intake
louvres provided at the back
(e.g. paper, rags etc.).
Operate as follows:
- Remove the door by unscrewing the two screws (1)
fastening the hinge to the cabinet (Fig. A).
- Remove the safety catch (2) and the plug (3) by bending
the two fastening tags (Fig. A).
- Refit the safety catch (2) and plug (3) on the door by
reversing their positions (Fig. B).
- Remove the plastic plate (4) by unscrewing the two
fastening screws (Fig. A).
- Refit the the plastic plate (4) on the opposite side (Fig.
B).
- Refit the door by screwing in the two screws (1) which
fasten the door to the cabinet (Fig. B).
P0281
Important
When operating the tumble dryer, the room temperature
must not exceed 35°C, as it may affect the performance of
the appliance.
To save energy, the room temperature should not be lower
than +15°C.
Levelling
Level the tumble dryer into place by screwing or
unscrewing the front feet as required.
2
Accurate levelling will keep vibration and noise to a
minimum when the dryer is in use.

The cover/carrier is indicated by the coloured insert at the
base of the plug.
A replacement cover/carrier must be obtained from your
local Bendix Service Centre (see page 10).
Avoid connecting the tumble dryer to the same socket as
your washing machine (or any other appliance) by means
of an adaptor. Have an extra socket installed if necessary,
by a qualified electrician.
Any electrical work required to install this appliance
should be carried out by a qualified electrician or
competent person.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
EARTHED.
The manufacturer declines any liability should
this safety measure not be observed.
Note
Installation, and, in particular, connection to the electric
mains and to the discharge vent must be carried out by a
competent person or qualified electricians.
Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it is
easily accessible for the engineer, in the event of a
breakdown.
If the plug that is fitted to your appliance is not suitable
for your socket outlet, it must be cut off, and the

appropriate plug fitted.
Remove the fuse from the cut off plug. The cut off plug
should then be disposed of to prevent the hazard of
electric shocks, in case it should be plugged into a 13
Amp socket in another part of your home.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
Green and Yellow - Earth
Blue - Neutral
Brown - Live
If you fit your own plug, the colours of the wires in the
mains lead of your appliance may not correspond with the
markings identifying the terminals in your plug.
To fit the plug, proceed as follows:
Connect the green and yellow (earth) wire to the terminal
in the plug which is marked with the letter «E» or the
earth symbol
, or coloured green and yellow.
Connect the blue (neutral) wire to the terminal in the plug
which is marked with the letter «N» or coloured black.
Connect the brown (live) wire to the terminal in the plug
which is marked with the letter «L» or coloured red.
The plug moulded on to the lead incorporates a fuse. For
replacement, use a 13 Amp BS1363 fuse. Only ASTA or
BSI approved fuses should be used.
