WARNINGS
■
These warnings have been provided in the
interest of safety. You MUST read them
carefully before installing or using the
appliance.
■
■
■
Service/Repair
■
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.
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
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.
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 Service Centre. Always insist on genuine
spare parts.
General Safety
■
■
■
Use
■

INSTALLATION
Positioning
Stacking kit
The machine must be installed in a wellventilated room.
To obtain the best performance, it is important
that the dryer is perfectly horizontal. Check this
by using a spirit level and make any necessary
adjustments to appliance’s adjustable feet.
To ensure the correct functioning of the machine,
the incoming air must be free from dust and the
discharge air must flow through the front
ventilation grid.
Do not remove the appliance’s adjustable feet.
It is essential to provide a certain amount of
space between the floor and the appliance for
ventilation purposes. Do not place it on deep
pile carpet or rugs.
Blocking ventilation would inevitably lead to a
build up of heat which would affect the
appliance’s efficiency.
This tumble dryer may be stacked on a front-loading
washing machine. However, the tumble dryer will
have to be fixed to the washing machine. For this to
be carried out, the special stacking kit (available from
all authorised dealers) will be required. The
assembling instructions are included in the kit.
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.
Make sure that air circulates freely at the back of
the appliance and that intake grilles are not
obstructed.
Connecting a drain hose
If there is a sink or drain near the appliance, the
condensed water can be discharged directly
through a hose that is available on the market.
In order to connect the hose to the appliance
proceed as follows:
■ Remove the clamp (A)
■ Pull out the plug (B)
■ Insert the drain hose (C)
■ Fasten the hose (C) to the appliance using the
clamp (A).
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 (2.6 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.

Automatic drying (electronic
programmes)
The appliance operates in these programmes by
means of dampness sensors. All you have to do
is to set the selector dial to the programme
required (A, B, C or D), according to the type of
laundry and the degree of drying required (see
programme table).
ENGLISH
Time controlled drying
You can select a time up to 90 mins. to finish off
drying, if necessary, or to use your tumble dryer
independently of the electronic control system.
When selecting a short drying time, remember
that during the last 9 mins. of operation, the heat
is cut off in order to carry out a cooling phase.
To cancel a programme in operation, turn the
selector dial to “0”.
When drying is completed, switch off the
appliance by turning the dial to “0” before

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:
■
completely, but without compressing the laundry, for cotton, linen and mixed fabrics
■
half full for synthetics
■
not more than one third for very delicate items.
56
■
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.

Tablecloth
Kitchen towel
Table napkin
Towelling hand towel
Bathrobe
Man’s shirt
Pillowcase

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.
■
■
■
■
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.).
ENGLISH
i Useful hints
Always follow the instructions on garment
labels.
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).
57
i 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 20 minutes. This ensures that no
dust and dirt is left in the drum.
Drying
1. Connect the tumble dryer
2. Load the items one at a time, shaking them
out loosely.
3. Close the door
4. Select the drying programme or time: the
mains-on light illuminates.
5. If necessary, press button
or
.
B
M0028
6. Press START-button: the drying cycle starts
and light
illuminates.
All drying programmes end with a 9-minute
cooling phase (light
is on).
If you do not remove the laundry at the end of the
programme, the machine will perform the anticrease phase which lasts 30 mins. max.
If you have not depressed button
, the buzzer
will sound every 10 seconds, the lights
and
will flash alternatively. To remove
the laundry at this stage, turn the selector dial to
“0”, the mains-on light goes out.
If you do not remove the laundry during the anticrease phase, the appliance will stop
automatically at the end of this phase: the mainson light will remain lighted and the control lights
and
will continue to flash.
After each drying cycle
■
■
58
Turn the programme selector dial to “0” to
switch the dryer off
Empty the water container and clean the filter
(see following pages)
P0885
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 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.
P1026
ENGLISH
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
and in the inner door in the recess of the
condenser unit with a damp cloth.
Cleaning the condenser
Remove fluff from the condenser unit regularly
according to how frequently the machine is used
and to the type of laundry being dried. However it
should always be cleaned when deposits of fluff
can be seen.
Extract the condenser using the top handle;
remove fluff with a hand-held shower head or a
soft brush.
P0636
P0639
Important: never use the tumble dryer without
the condenser.
59
Emptying the 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.
Note:
The water collected in the container can be used
in a steam iron provided it is filtered (for example
with a coffee filter).
