Important Safety Instructions
DRYER SAFETY
FIRE HAZARDS
Failure to follow these safety instructions could damage the
dryer or your clothes.
You may then not be covered by warranty for this
damage.
Some fabrics are not suitable for tumble drying. The following
MUST NOT be placed in your dryer due to the risk of a fire or
an explosion:
!
Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable
oil, cooking oil, suntan oil, linseed oil, salad oil,
lubrication oil or grease. Oil 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 heat cannot escape, the items can become hot
enough to ignite. Piling, stacking, or storing oil-affected
items can prevent heat from escaping and create a fire
hazard. If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain
vegetable or cooking oil, or have been contaminated by
hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer, they
should first be washed in hot water with extra detergent this will reduce, but not eliminate the hazard. The ‘cool
down’ cycle of tumble dryers should be used to reduce
the temperature of the items. They should not be
removed from the tumble dryer or piled while hot.
!
Items that have previously been cleaned in, washed in, or
spotted with petrol/gasoline, industrial chemicals
used only for cleaning, dry-cleaning solvents or other
flammable or explosive substances. Highly
flammable substances commonly found around the
house include acetone, (nail polish remover)
denatured alcohol, petrol/gasoline, kerosene, some
spot removers, turpentine, waxes and wax removers.
Items containing foam rubber (also known as latex
foam) or similarly textured rubber-like materials.
Foam rubber materials can produce fire by
spontaneous combustion when heated.
!
Rubber-backed articles, clothes fitted with foam rubber
pads, pillows, rubber boots and rubber-coated sports
shoes.
Only plug this appliance directly into an AC power supply,
which is properly earthed and has the correct voltage. See
the serial number sticker located on the top of the door
opening for voltage information.
CAUTION: If this appliance is supplied from a cord extension
set or electrical portable outlet device, the cord extension set
or electrical portable outlet device must be positioned so that
it is not subject to splashing or ingress of moisture. For safety
reasons we strongly advise against the use of double
adaptors, extension cords or power boards.
This tumble dryer is not intended for use by young children or
infirm persons without supervision. Young children should be
supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
IMPORTANT: If the electrical cord of this appliance is
damaged, it must be replaced by the Manufacturer,
Authorised Service Agent or similarly qualified person in
order to avoid a hazard.
These dryers are for drying clothes, towels and linen at
home. Do not use them for any other purpose.
For your safety, and to reduce the risk of fire or an explosion,
DO NOT store or use petrol or other inflammable vapours
and liquids near your dryer.

Important Safety Instructions
LINT BUILD-UP IS A FIRE HAZARD
DRYING GUIDE
A clean lint filter reduces drying times, saves energy and
avoids overheating. Overheating may also damage your
clothes.
Your load, when dry must not exceed the rated capacity.
! 4kg for the 4kg Machine
! 5kg for the 5kg Machine
! 6kg for the 6kg Machine
(See page 6 for a table of average weights of laundry items)
What happens if I forget to clean the lint filter?
Drying Time
Always check your labels for the drying symbols which the
International Care Labelling Code now uses.

Number of usages with an unclean lint filter
(based on laboratory tests using a load of new towels)
The lint filter is located
at the front of your
dryer at the bottom
of the door opening.
Delicate drying (low temperature)
!
Woollen articles - not recommended. Pull them to their
original shape, then dry them flat.
!
Woven and loop knit materials - may shrink, by varying
amounts, depending on their quality. Do not use the ‘hot’
setting for these fabrics. Always stretch them out
immediately after drying.
!
Fibre or leather materials - always check the
manufacturer’s instructions.
!
Baby clothes and night gowns - acrylic clothing or
sleepwear use only on the ‘warm’ setting.
!
Rubber and plastics - Do not dry any items made from
or containing rubber or plastics, such as aprons, bibs,
babies’ waterproof napkins, curtains, tablecloths,
shower caps, clothes fitted with foam rubber pads,
pillows, galoshes, or rubber coated tennis shoes.
!
Fibreglass - not recommended. Glass particles left in the
dryer could be picked up by your clothes the next time
you use the dryer, and irritate your skin.
During the drying cycle, if you want to
! add or take out clothes, or
! check the dryness of the load,
turn down the timer to ‘Airing’ for at least one minute before
opening the door. This is to prevent scorching or possible self
combustion of the fabric.
Open apart the lint filter and
wipe or peel off the lint.
Ensure the lint filter ‘clicks’ when replacing. It can be inserted
into the pocket either way.
!
Do Not Tumble Dry
Permanent press and synthetics - take out as soon as
the dryer stops to reduce wrinkles.
You must clean this lint filter after every load.

May be tumble dried
Never operate your dryer without the lint filter.
Do not allow lint to build up around your dryer.
A torn or damaged lint filter must be replaced
immediately.
Overloading can increase lint build-up because the
airflow is reduced.
Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used in a
tumble dryer to eliminate the effects of static electricity
unless this practice is specifically recommended by the
manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.
Note: We strongly advise against the use of fabric
conditioners of the sheet type that are added to the
clothes in the drum. These products may lead to rapid
blockage of the lint filter and inefficient operation of your
dryer.
To avoid potential fire hazards, we recommend that you
pay a qualified service technician to periodically clean
your dryer. You must do this also when you change your
mounting from upright to inverted, or vice versa.

Installation Instructions
Do not install your dryer in a cupboard or small un-vented
laundry unless you are using a venting kit.
You can choose to put your dryer:! on the floor.
! on a work bench.
! on a wall, upside down or upright, using the included
mounting kit.
! on top of a front load washing machine (using a stacking
kit available as an optional extra).
There are 2 VENTING OPTIONS
! front
! rear - using a venting kit (optional extra)
Venting Kit
DVK005 - Through the wall
DVK006 - Universal flexible hose
Important: Use only kits approved by Electrolux Home
Products Pty Ltd with your dryer. Contact the Electrolux
Home Products Pty. Ltd. Spare Parts Centre for the list
of approved kits. The exhaust duct must not exceed 2
metres in length and 100mm in diameter.
If connecting the dryer to a common ducting system,
safety advice should be requested from the
manufacturer.
The appliance 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 the
tumble dryer door is restricted.
Stacking Kit
You can use a stacking kit if you want to mount your dryer
on top of a Simpson front load washing machine. Use the
kit part number DKSK03. Refer to the kit instructions on
how to install.
NAME
BADGE
If you choose to use an optional vent kit, the exhaust grille at
the front of the dryer will need to be replaced with the outlet
cover from the back of the dryer. Gently prise open the grille,
using a thin bladed tool. Next, remove the cover from the
back and clip it into the grille space at the front. The exhaust
grille is not required when using a vent kit.

The exhaust grille has a range of positions, which allows you
to select the optimum exhaust air angle. Simply hold the grille
and rotate it until it hits the built-in stop.

Inlet and outlet points need clear airflow to prevent
overheating, so ensure there is adequate ventilation. (i.e.
open window or external door.)
removable exhaust grille
If a venting kit is used and the exhaust is discharged out of the
room, there must be adequate ventilation to avoid the back
flow of gases into the room from appliances burning other
fuels, including open fires, when operating the tumble dryer.
This is not applicable where a venting hose is directed to an
open window. The exhaust air must not be discharged into a
flue which is used for exhausting fumes from appliances
burning gas or other fuels.
Name Badge
You can invert the name badge when you want to mount your
dryer upside down on the wall.
Use a suitable tool (such as a thin bladed tool). Unclip the
badge from the panel, invert and clip back.

Quick 5 Step Operating Guide
Select the drying time.
Loa d your dryer loosely until it is no more than T WO T HIR DS
FULL . Clothes must tumble freely in a dryer. Don’t cram
them in. Wet clothes fluff up when dry.
Turn the knob control in the direction of the arrow only
(clockwise). Turning the knob in opposite direction (counterclockwise) will damage the timer.
This damage will not be covered by product warranty.
Switch On
The dryer will not operate unless the safety button on the
door is fully pressed in.
Overloading will:
Reduce efficiency
Increase drying time
Increase the risk of creasing

SAFETY
SWITCH
BUTTON
Do not load clothes or other articles which are dripping
wet into your dryer.
Clean Lint Filter
After every load clean the lint filter located at the front of your
dryer to reduce drying times and avoid overheating.
Select one of the two (2) temperature settings.
TEMPERATURE
CONTROL
STANDARD FEATURES
Reversing Action
The drum is designed to turn one minute in each direction,
clockwise and anti-clockwise. This reduces tangling and gives
more even drying in a shorter time.
TIME
CONTROL
‘Warm’ for delicate items which can shrink, such as
synthetics, underwear, etc.
‘Hot’ for heavy, durable items such as towels and
flannelette sheets.
Cooling Down
At the end of the drying cycle, there is automatically a time of
no heat, to cool down the load and minimise creasing.
Useful Hints
Never tumble dry the following: Delicate items such as net
curtains, woollen, silk, fabric with metal trim, nylon tights,
bulky materials such as anoraks, blankets, eiderdown
sleeping bags, feather quilts and any item containing
rubber foam or materials similar to foam rubber.
Do not place in your dryer undergarments such as bras
and corsets that contain metal reinforcements. Your
dryer may be damaged if metal parts were to come
loose from the garment. Place such items in a bag
designed for this purpose.
Drying time will also be affected by voltage
fluctuations, room temperature and humidity. Clothes
will dry more slowly on a cool or humid day.
For best results, sort the load according to fabric types.
Such as heavy items which may take longer to dry, eg
towels, flannelette sheets etc, than ones which dry
quickly, eg poly/cotton shirts and sheets.
Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured items such
as towels as lint will show on the dark clothes.
For nylon socks and other small light items, place them
in a bag designed for this purpose. This will stop these
items being caught in the lint filter cavity.
Note: Some fabrics will collect lint from other clothes
and items. Separate the lint ‘givers’ and the lint
‘collectors’ to minimise this problem.
Clothes that give lint include towels, nappies, chenille.
Clothes that collect lint include corduroy, synthetics and
permanent press garments.
Check and empty pockets. Clips, pens, nails and pins
can damage both the dryer and your clothes. Other items
such as matches or cigarette lighters will cause a fire.
If individual items are still damp after drying, set a 30
minute post drying time. This will be necessary
particularly for multilayered items (eg collars, pockets,
etc).
Close all press studs, hooks, eyes and zips that may
catch on something else. Tie all belts and apron strings
to prevent tangling.
Drying time will depend on fabric type and construction,
load size and wetness. Save time and money and always
spin the load as dry as possible in your washing machine.
Always clean the lint filter - this will reduce drying time
and save you money.

Useful Hints, Troubleshooting & Accessories
USEFUL HINTS
TROUBLESHOOTING
(continued)
Check the points listed here befor e you call for help, and
make sure that you have followed the Important Safety
Information on pages 2 & 3.
The laundry must be thoroughly spun before tumble
drying.
Easy-care items eg shirts, should be briefly pre-spun
before drying (depending on the crease resistance
approximately 30 seconds)
I f you can’t start your dryer, check these probable
causes.
Plug is not firmly in socket, or power not turned on.
You have blown a fuse. Check that power point with
another appliance.
You have not closed the dryer door or pushed in the door
safety switch button.
You have not turned the control knob to the setting you
want.
To avoid 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.
Remove the laundry when the dryer has finished
drying.
If your clothes are still wet:
The selected drying time was insufficient. Turn the
control knob to a longer time setting.
Longer time may be needed when the room
temperatures is 10 0 C or less.
Check that the lint filter is not blocked.
