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. • Easy-ccare 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 post-drying time, but at least 30 minutes. This will be necessary particularly for multilayered items (e.g. collars, pockets, etc.). Do not dry wool in the dryer. May become entangled! After air-drying, wool may be dried with the WOOL CARE programme. Make sure that no metal objects are left in the laundry (e.g. hair clips, safety pins, pins). Button up pillowcases, close zip fasteners, hooks and poppers. Tie any belts or long tapes. Remove persistent stains before washing. Rub particularly soiled areas with a special detergent or detergent paste. Treat curtains with special care. Remove hooks or tie them up in a bag or net. GB 125983780_gb.qxp 2006-10-06 11:44 Page 14 14 electrolux drying hints Maximum loads Recommended loads are indicated in the programme 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. Load It is often difficult to estimate the weight of items to be dried. We therefore recommend that you adopt the following guidelines: • cotton, linen: drum full but not too tightly packed; • synthetics: drum no more than half full; • delicate fabrics: drum no more than one third full.

Relevant variations of the conductivity of the water compared to those prefixed by the factory could slightly influence the residual humidity of the laundry at the end of the cycle. Your dryer allows you to regulate the sensitivity of the drying sensor based on conductivity values of the water by using the following procedure. To access adjustment mode: 1. Turn the programme selector dial to switch on the appliance. 2. In selection mode,press simultaneously the buttons DRYNESS and START. Press the buttons down until until «C0» appears on the digits.

External cleaning The filter in the inner door must be removed for 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 from the seals around the filter. Accurate cleaning ensures correct drying. 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 programme, before removing the laundry, with a damp cloth. The light is on to remind you this operation. 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 un-noticed in the air. In a tumble dryer it simply collects in the filter. After a while, a withish patina 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 (it can be positioned with the tooth facing to the left or to the right). 125983780_gb.qxp 2006-10-06 11:45 Page 19 care and cleaning electrolux 19 GB Do not use the appliance without filters. Cleaning the condenser unit Clean the condenser when light on. comes 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. During the drying cycle or at the end, it is normal for water to be present on the surface of the condenser insertion. 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. To pull out the condenser, first turn the two red stops downwards and then remove the condenser unit holding it at the handle. Do not use this appliance if the condenser has not been fitted. Emptying the water reservoir Water extracted from the laundry condenses inside the machine and is collected in a reservoir. The reservoir must be emptied after each drying cycle to ensure efficient operation when the machine is next used. The pilot light reminds you this operation. 125983780_gb.qxp 2006-10-06 11:45 Page 20 20 electrolux care and cleaning Proceed as follows: • Open the small door at the lower part of the cabinet • Turn the yellow stop upwards • Pull out the reservoir • Open the small cover and let water flow down • Close the small cover and re-insert correctly the reservoir • Push it until it clicks and turn the yellow stop downwards to lock firmly it 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. • Close the small door and press the START/PAUSE button again to allow the programme to continue. 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. The reservoir must be re-iinserted correctly. If this is not done the pilot light comes on during next drying and the programme stops, leaving the laundry damp. The buzzer will sound for 1 minute. After emptying and inserting the reservoir the START-button has to be depressed again to allow the programme to continue. This will eliminate the slight patina that has formed in the drum (due to residues of detergent and softeners used in the washing, and to the lime contained in the water), which prevents the probes from detecting the correct degree of dryness. 125983780_gb.qxp 2006-10-06 11:45 Page 21 something not working electrolux 21 Something not working Certain problems are due to lack of simple maintenance or oversights, which can be solved easily without calling out an engineer.

Slide out the polythene bag with the polystyrene stuffing before using the appliance Pull off adhesive strips from inside machine on top of drum. Should the appliance be moved, it must be transported vertically. Do not install the appliance behind – a door that locks – a sliding door – a door with a hinge that lies opposite the hinge of the appliance. Remove the rack The drying rack offers the possibility of drying washable woollen fabrics and sports shoes. The drying rack does not turn with the clothes-dryer drum. This allows the drying of woollen garments or sports shoes. When wet, the wool must be moved as little as possible because it tends to become matted. Sports shoes could damage the drum due to their weight. 1. Lift the rack out of the polystyrene protection used for transport and remove it from the clothes-dryer drum. 2. Remove the pieces of polystyrene from the drum one at a time. 3. Remove the elastic band from the rack and the rack containe. 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 build-up which would interfere with the operation of the appliance. Important 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 125983780_gb.qxp 2006-10-06 11:45 Page 27 installation electrolux 27 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. 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 with cover’s depth between 48 and 60 cm.

This declaration does not affect the vendor's statutory warranty to the end user. The appliance is guaranteed within the context of and in adherence with the following terms: 1.

Performing the guarantee means that the appliance is returned to the condition it was in before the defect occurred. Defective parts are replaced or repaired. Parts replaced free of charge become our property. 3. So as to avoid more severe damage, the defect must be brought to our attention immediately. 4. Applying the guarantee is subject to the consumer providing proof of purchase showing the purchase and/or delivery date. 5. The guarantee will not apply if damage caused to delicate parts, such as glass (vitreous ceramic), synthetic materials and rubber, is the result of inappropriate use. 6.
