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.

Warning!
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.

• Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured fluffy
items such as towels as they could attract the fluff.
Useful hints
• 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.
Sheet
• 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).
700 - 1000 g

• 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.).
• 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:
may be tumble dried
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.

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.

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.
