These warnings have been provided in the interest of safety. You MUST read them carefully before installing or using the appliance. INSTALLATION ■ ■ ■ Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried out by a qualified electrician or competent person. Make sure that the appliance does not stand on its electrical supply cable. If the machine is situated on a carpeted floor, please adjust the feet in order to allow air to circulate freely. ■ ■ SERVICE/REPAIR ■ USE ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Always unplug the appliance after use. Clothes which are dripping wet should not be placed in the dryer. Always load well spun laundry. The higher the spin speed, the lower the electricity consumption and the shorter the drying times. Never tumble dry items that have been in contact with chemicals such as dry cleaning fluid. These are of a volatile nature and could cause an explosion. As some bulky items such as duvets and eiderdowns should be dried in large commercial machines because of their bulk, check with the manufacturer of the item if it is suitable for drying in a domestic machine, even if the dry weight of the item is within the limit advised. Always check that no cigarette lighters have been left in pockets. Leave the door slightly ajar when not in use to preserve the door seal. The fluff filter must be cleaned after every use. Do not operate the appliance with a damaged filter or without filter as this may cause a fire. Do not overload the appliance. Do not allow fluff to accumulate around the dryer. Do not dry canvas shoes or sports shoes, as they could get stuck between the door and the drum, thus blocking the latter. Under no circumstances should you attempt to repair the machine yourself. Repairs carried out by inexperienced persons may cause injury or serious malfunctioning. Refer to your local Zanussi Service Centre. Always insist on genuine Zanussi spare parts.

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 deep-pile 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 to high temperatures. When operating the tumble dryer, the room temperature must not exceed 35°C, as it may affect the performance of the appliance. 5 Door reversal Stacking kit To make it easier to load or unload the laundry the door can be reversed. This operation must be carried out by qualified personnel. Please contact the nearest Zanussi Service Centre. A special stacking kit is available through your dealer, to enable the mounting of the dryer on top of your washing machine. 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.

For information, here is a list of the average weights of some common laundry items. Sheet 700 - 1000 g Tablecloth 400 - 500 g Kitchen towel 70 - 120 g Table napkin 50 - 100 g Towelling hand towel 150 - 250 g Bathrobe 1000 - 1500 g Man’s shirt 200 - 300 g Pillowcase 100 - 200 g Man’s pyjamas 400 - 500 g Ladies’ nightdress 200 - 250 g Never tumble dry the following: Particularly delicate items such as net curtains, woollen, silk, fabrics with metal trim, nylon tights, bulky materials such as anoraks, 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. ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ 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 20 minutes. This will be necessary particularly for multilayered items (e.g. collars, pockets, etc.). normal drying (high temperature) delicate drying (low temperature) do not tumble dry ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ 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. 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). 11 ENGLISH i 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. 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 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 with a damp cloth. Pull the filter upwards in order to remove it. 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. Important: Remove the fluff around the filter too. 12 P1026 ENGLISH Cleaning condenser Remove fluff from condenser on a regular basis to avoid prolonging drying times and increasing energy consumption. Proceed as follows: 1. Remove condenser by using the top handle. 2. Clean condenser with a hand-held shower or a soft brush. 3. Clean external part, too. 4. Remove the fluff from the seal of the condenser in the lower part of the inner door. 5. Leave condenser to dry; when it is dry, place in original position. P0636 P0639 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. Do not use this appliance if the condenser has not been fitted. Emptying water container Water extracted from the laundry being dried is collected in a special container. This container must be emptied after every cycle, but it can also be emptied during the drying cycle. Should you forget to empty the container, a light will light up on the panel and the drying cycle will stop automatically even if the laundry is not dry yet. Insert container correctly. After inserting the container the drying cycle will resume after 135 secondes max. C0031 P0827 Important: When emptying the container during the drying cycle, the machine stops drying, but the drying time selector dial will continue to step on. 13 SERVICING Before contacting your local Zanussi Service Centre, please make the following checks: PROBLEM ■ The dryer does not start up POSSIBLE CAUSE ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ The dryer does not dry properly ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ If, after the above checks, there is still a fault, call your local Zanussi Service Centre.
