Help to keep your country tidy! 3 ENGLISH Important safety information 125993341.qxd 23/01/2003 14:17 Pagina 4 Tips for environmental protection • To utilize the maximum load, laundry which is to be dried ready to put away (store dry) can be dried together with items to be ironed. To do this, select the time for iron-dry, remove the iron-dry items at the end of the programme and then finish-dry the rest of the load. To save energy and to help protect the environment, we recommend that you follow these hints: • Try to load the maximum capacity of the machine as small loads are uneconomical. • Always load well spun laundry. The higher the spin speed, the lower the electricity consumption and the shorter the drying times. • Clean the filters regularly to avoid excessive drying times and high electricity consumption. • Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids creasing and saves energy. Select the drying time/section according to the type of laundry and the required degree of dryness. • Ventilate the room well. The room temperature should not exceed +35°C during drying.

Electrical connection This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 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. Unpacking Slide out the polythene bag with the polystyrene stuffing before using the appliance. The manufacturer declines any responsibility for damage or injury through failure to comply with the above safety precaution. Should the appliance power supply cable need to be replaced, this must be carried out by our Service Centre. P1106 Important! The power supply cable must be accessible after installing the machine. Should the appliance be moved, it must be transported vertically. Stacking kit Positioning A special stacking kit is available through your dealer, to enable the mounting of the dryer on top of a front loading washing machine with cover’s depth between 48 and 60 cm. Read carefully the instructions supplied with the kit before installing the dryer. 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. P1148 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. Door reversal 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 Service Centre. 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 be lower than +5°C and higher than +35°C, as it may affect the performance of the appliance. 5 ENGLISH Installation 125993341.qxd 23/01/2003 14:17 Pagina 6 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.

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. P1150 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. 650 800 / kg 5 kg 2,5 P1110 900 70' - 90' 35' - 50' 1000 / 1200 65' - 85' 30' - 45' 800 / 900 80' - 100' 70' 55' - 1000 / 1200 75' - 95' 50' - 65' kg 2,5 kg 1 50' - 60' 30' - 35' P1177 To pull out the condenser, first turn the two red stops downwards and then remove the condenser unit holding it at the handle. E R S V E R E T O A U P1151 The filter in the inner door must be removed for cleaning. P1159 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. 11 P1155 ENGLISH Maintenance and Cleaning 125993341.qxd 23/01/2003 14:17 Pagina 12 Clean it with a brush and rinse it under the shower if necessary. The reservoir must be re-inserted correctly. Push it until it clicks. The machine can remain unactive some seconds before starting the programme and during this period the water container light remains alight. 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 P0639 Also clean the outside, removing all fluff. Using a vacuum cleaner remove the fluff from the air intake grille at the back of the appliance. 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. P1162 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. If this is not done a safety device trips: pilot light on the control panel comes on and the programme stops, leaving the laundry damp. The reservoir can be emptied even in the middle of a programme.
