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

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.

INSTALLATION
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
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.
P1044

1 Water container
When the tumble dryer is being used,
condensation is collected in a special container.
To empty container, please refer to ‘Maintenance’
chapter.
Important: If the water container fills up
completely during the drying cycle, the relevant
light lights up indicating that the container has to
be emptied. The drying time selector dial
continues to turn towards the “0” position, but the
drying cycle is stopped, that means that the
laundry is not dried. After having emptied the
container, you have to select the drying
programme again for the time required to
complete drying.
Attention: After this operation, the dryer can stay
still for some minutes before starting the
programme and during this period the water
container light remains alight.
2 Programme Chart
This will help you to select the correct time for
drying.
3 Door opening button
To open door, press this button. Should the door
be opened while appliance is working, the tumble
dryer will stop functioning. Press start button to
resume drying after closing the door.
4 Low Temperature Button
Press this button to reduce the temperature when
drying particularly delicate cotton or linen items.
In this case you should select a longer drying
time.

ATTENTION! The door must be closed.
6 “Water container full” light
This light lights up when the water container is
full or when it has been inserted incorrectly.
7 Drying Time Selector Dial
The selector dial incorporates two drying cycles,
one of up to 150 minutes at a high temperature
for cotton and linen, and one of up to 100
minutes at a low temperature for synthetic
fabrics.
To set the machine to the selected time, turn the
dial clockwise until the time you want coincides
exactly with the pointer.
NEVER attempt to turn the dial in an
anticlockwise direction.
When selecting the drying time, you should
remember that it includes a 10 minute cooling
phase (position
on the dial).
This phase should not be shortened, stopped or
avoided, as this could cause skin burns or
damages to the laundry.
Additional drying
If at the end of the programme the laundry is still
too damp, set the dial for a further period of
drying (remembering to take into account the
cooling period).
8 Mains-On Light
This lights up when the machine starts operating
and goes out at the end of the programme or by
opening the door.

Never overfill the drum (do not load large quilts, for example).
The laundry must be suitably spin dried in your washing machine before being placed in the tumble
dryer (500rpm minimum).
Drying times vary according to:
- The type of laundry
- The size of the load
- The degree of spinning prior to drying
Drying times are given as a guide only. Experience will soon enable you to estimate the drying time
needed for your usual laundry loads.
Do not start by selecting a long drying time. It is better to determine the required degree of dryness by
gradually increasing the drying time.
For a mixed load (cotton and resistant synthetics, for example) select the time for the most delicate
fibres and increase it by 10 mins.

700 - 1000 g
Tablecloth
400 - 500 g
Kitchen towel
70 - 120 g
Table napkin
50 - 100 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.

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).
■
■
■
■
■
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
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.
P1026
11
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. Leave condenser to dry; when it is dry, place
in original position.
5. Remove the fluff from the seal of the
condenser in the lower part of the inner door.
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.
Important: When emptying the container during
the drying cycle, the machine stops drying, but
the drying time selector dial will continue to step
on.
