Drying times vary according to:
- The type of laundry
- The size of the load
- The degree of spinning prior to drying.
Loading
It is often difficult to calculate the weight of the laundry to be dried. For this reason we recommend
that the drum be filled:
n
completely, but without compressing the laundry, for cotton, linen and mixed fabrics
n
half full for synthetics
n
no more than one third for very delicate items.

Drying sequence
Before starting up for the first time it is advisable
lo load a few moist cloths into the dryer and to let
it run for about 30 minutes. This ensures that no
dust and dirt is left in the drum. In order to do
this, switch the machine on by pressing the
ON/OFF button, set the programme selector dial
on “L”, then press the START button.
The programme will start and finish
automatically.
To dry your laundry:
1. Connect the tumble dryer.
2. Load the items one at a time, shaking them
out loosely and close the door.
3. Press the ON/OFF button

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.
n
n
n
n
n
Easy-care items, too, e.g. shirts, should be
briefly pre-spun before drying (depending on
crease resistance approx. 30 seconds or using
the special brief spin programme 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.
You can also put starched items into your
dryer. However, to achieve the desired
starched effect, choose the programme “iron
dry”. To remove any starch residues, wipe out
the internal drum after drying with a moist cloth
and then rub it dry.
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.
Remove the laundry when the dryer has
finished drying.
If individual items are still damp after drying,
set a brief drying time of at least 30 minutes
(programme L). This will be necessary
particularly for multilayered items (e.g. collars,
pockets, etc.).

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.
The laundry must be thoroughly spun before
tumble drying.

MAINTENANCE
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, diluents
or similar products.
Cleaning the door
Clean periodically the interior part of the door to
remove any fluff.
Accurate cleaning ensures correct drying.
P0328
22
Cleaning the filter
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,
before removing the laundry, with a damp
cloth.
The filter cannot be removed.
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.

FOR THE INSTALLER
Installation
Positioning
It is recommended that, for your convenience, the
machine is positioned close to your washing
machine.
Whilst drying, the tumble dryer will expel a certain
amount of warm, very moist air, and this should
be removed from the room as quickly as possible
to prevent condensation. In an extremely well
ventilated room or close to an open window, this
may occur naturally.
However, in general, it is better to carry the
dryer's exhaust outside via the 100 mm diameter
flexible hose supplied with the appliance; ending
either temporarily at an open window, or
permanently at a fixed ventilation grille, fitted to
an exterior wall or window.
The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean
place, where dirt does not build up.
Make sure there are no obstructing items or
material near the air-intake louvres provided at
the back (e.g. paper, rags etc.).
To keep vibration and noise to a minimum when
the dryer is in use, it should be placed on a firm,
level surface.
Fitting the vent hose
To simplify the installation, there is a choice of
vent outlets: one at the back, the others in the left
and right-hand side.
Connect the hose to whichever is the more
convenient by pulling the ring nut (A) from the
vent outlet at the back, screwing it on to the hose
and pushing it firmly back into place.
The unused vents should now be sealed with the
special snap covers provided.
A
P1028
A
P1027
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
Iying 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 B).
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 two
adjustable feet at the front of the machine until it is.
P1056
P0046
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.
Important
When operating the tumble dryer, the room
temperature must not exceed 35°C, as it may
affect the performance of the appliance.
24
B
Once connected to the dryer, run the vent hose to
the desired outlet point, ensuring that it contains
no more than two bends. As to the outlet itself, if
you have decided on a fixed wall/window grille, a
good local builder’s merchant should be able to
supply you with the necessary fittings and
installation advice.
Door reversal
P0055
Note that to avoid condensation problems, it is
essential that the dryer be fitted with the flexible
hose to carry its “exhaust” at least beyond the
kitchen units; preferable outside the kitchen.
To prevent wind or water flowing back into the
tumble dryer, you can also orientate the end of
the hose downwards.
In order to prevent the appliance from
overheating, it is important that the steam
exhaust is unobstructed.
Therefore, in case of a permanent hose fitted to
an exterior wall or ceiling, it must be ensured an
exhaust capacity of at least 150 m3/h.
To make it easier to load or unload the laundry
the door can be reversed.
This operation must be carried out by
qualified personnel.
Operate as follows:
n Remove the door by unscrewing the two
screws (1) fastening the hinge to the cabinet
(Fig. A).
n Remove the safety catch (2) and the plug (3)
by bending the two fastening tags (Fig. A).
n Refit the safety catch (2) and plug (3) on the
door by reversing their positions (Fig. B).
n Remove the plastic plate (4) by unscrewing
the two fastening screws (Fig. A).
n Refit the plastic plate (4) on the opposite side
(Fig. B).
n Refit the door by screwing in the two screws (1)
which fasten the door to the cabinet (Fig. B).

P0283
Installation in a room connected to a central
ventilation system may affect the correct machine
functioning. If you notice that the drying cycle is
unusually longer, switch the fan off or close the
fan grille.
2
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 will be reduced, resulting in longer
drying times and higher energy consumption.

B
If the hose is completely squashed, the safety
cut-outs with which the machine is fitted may
operate.
25
ENGLISH
It is important not to connect the
vent hose to, for example, a cooker
hood, or a chimney or flue pipe
designed to carry the exhaust from
a fuel burning appliance.
Electrical connection
This machine is designed to operate on a 220230 V, single-phase, 50 Hz supply.
Check that your domestic electrical installation
can take the maximum load required (2.2 kW),
also taking into account any other appliances in
use.
Connect the machine to an earthed socket, in
accordance with current wiring regulations.
The manufacturer declines any
responsibility for damage or injury
through failure to comply with the
above safety precaution.
Stacking kit
A special stacking kit is available through your
dealer, to enable the mounting of the dryer on
top of your washing machine.
The assembling instructions are included in the
kit.
