Important safety information
These warnings have been provided in the interest of safety. You MUST read them carefully before installing or
using the appliance.
• Highly flammable substances commonly used in
domestic environments include acetone,
denatured alcohol, petrol/gasoline, kerosene, spot
removers (some brands), turpentine, waxes and
wax removers.
Installation
• Any electrical work required to install this
appliance should be carried out by a qualified
electrician or competent tradesman.
• Care must be taken to ensure that the appliance
does not stand on the electrical supply cable.
• Items containing foam rubber (also known as latex
foam) or a similar textured rubber, should not be
dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting.
• If the machine is situated on a carpeted floor,
please adjust the feet in order to allow air to
circulate freely.
• Foam rubber materials can, when heated, produce
fire by spontaneous combustion.
• Fabric softeners or similar products should not be
used in a tumble dryer to eliminate static
electricity unless this practice is specifically
recommended by the fabric softener or product
manufacturer.
Use
• This appliance is designed for domestic use only.
If the machine is used for any other purpose or is
not used correctly, the manufacturer accepts no
responsibility for any damage that might occur.
• Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements
should not be placed in the tumble dryer.
• Tumble dryer is intended only for drying textile
material, washed in water only.
• Damage to the tumble dryer can occur if metal
reinforcements come loose during drying. When
available a drying rack could be used for such
items.
• Always unplug the appliance after use.
• Clothes which are dripping wet should not be
placed in the dryer.
• Plastic articles such as shower caps or babies’
waterproof napkin covers should not be placed in
the tumble dryer.
• Risk of fire: items that have been spotted or
soaked with vegetable or cooking oil constitute a
fire hazard and should not be placed in the tumble
dryer.
• Rubber backed articles, clothes fitted with foam
rubber pads, pillows, gumboots and rubber
coated tennis shoes should not be placed in the
tumble dryer.
• Oil affected items can ignite spontaneously,
especially when exposed to heat sources such as
in the tumble dryer. Items become warm, causing
an oxidation reaction in the oil. Oxidisation creates
heat. If the heat can not escape garments become
hot and risk catching fire. Piling, stacking or
storing oil affected items can prevent heat from
escaping, creating a fire hazard.
• Danger of explosion: Never tumble dry items that
have been in contact with inflammable solvents
(petrol, methylated spirits, dry cleaning fluids etc).
These substances are volatile and can cause an
explosion. Only tumble dry items washed in water.
• Ensure no gas lighters have been accidentally left
in pockets of garments.
• If fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or
have been contaminated by hair care products are
placed in a tumble dryer, they should be washed
first in hot water with extra detergent. This will
reduce, but not eliminate the hazard. The cool
down cycle should be used to reduce the
temperature of the garment. Garments should not
be removed from the tumble dryer, piled or
stacked while hot.
• Do not dry canvas shoes or sport shoes, as they
could get stuck between the door and the drum.
• Leave the door slightly ajar when the tumble dryer
is not in use. This allows the seal to be preserved.
• Clean lint filters after use, to prevent the risk of
fire. Do not use the dryer if the lint filters are
damaged or missing.
• Items that have been previously cleaned, washed,
soaked or spotted with petrol/gasoline, drycleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive
substances should not be placed in the tumble
dryer.
• Do not allow lint to accumulate around the dryer.

General safety
Child safety
• It is dangerous to alter the specifications or
attempt to modify this product in any way.
• The appliance is not intended for use by young
children or infirm persons without supervision.
• Under no circumstances should you attempt to
repair the machine yourself. Repairs carried out by
inexperienced persons may cause injury or
serious malfunctioning. Contact your local
Electrolux Customer Service on 131349. Always
insist on genuine spare parts.
• Children are often not aware of how dangerous
electrical appliances can be. When the machine is
working, children should be carefully supervised
and not be allowed to play with the appliance.
• The packaging components (e.g. plastic film,
polystyrene) can cause suffocation and be
dangerous to children. Keep them out of
children's reach.
• Make sure children and pets do not climb into the
drum.
• When discarding the appliance, cut the electrical
supply cable and destroy the plug with the
remaining cable. Disable to door catch in order to
prevent young children from becoming trapped
inside the machine while playing.
Disposal
• Packaging materials
The materials marked with the symbol
recyclable.
• Machine
Use authorised disposal sites for your old appliance.
Help keep Australia tidy!
are
This means they be recycled properly by disposing
of them in appropriate collection containers.
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 programme 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 and load the machine to maximum capacity,
small loads are uneconomical.
• Always load well spun garments. The higher the
spin speed, the lower the electricity consumption
and shorter the drying times.
• Clean the filters regularly to avoid excessive drying
times and high electricity consumption.
• Do not over dry garments, this avoids creasing
and saves energy.
• Ventilate the room well. The room temperature
should not exceed +35°C during drying.

Useful hints
• Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured fluffy
items such as towels as they could attract the
fluff.
• 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
700 - 1000 g
Tablecloth
• Easy-care items e.g. shirts, should be briefly prespun before drying (depending on the crease
resistance approx 30 seconds).
400 - 500 g
Kitchen towel
70 - 120 g
Table napkin
50 - 100 g
Towelling hand towel
Bathrobe
• The laundry must be thoroughly spun before
tumble drying.
• 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 place starched items into your dryer.
However, to achieve the desired starch effect,
choose the program «iron dry».To remove any
starch residue, wipe out the internal drum after
drying with a moist cloth and 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
30 minute post drying time. This will be necessary
particularly for multilayered items (e.g. collars,
pockets, etc).
• Never tumble dry the following:
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.

clean the spaces between the plates, this could
damage the condenser.
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).
Re-fit the condenser, turn the red stops upwards
and close the door.
Cleaning the drum
Do not use this appliance if the condenser
has not been fitted.
When your garments do not reach the desired
degree of dryness, e.g. It turns out either too dry or
too damp, we advise you clean the inside of the
drum with a cloth soaked in vinegar.
Emptying the water reservoir
This will eliminate the pattern formed in the drum
(due to residues of detergent and softeners used in
the washing and lime contained in the water).
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 dryer is
in use.
If this is not done the safety devise trips: pilot light
full tank on the control panel comes on and the
program stops, leaving the laundry damp.
The reservoir can be emptied even in the middle of
a programme.
Proceed as follows:
• Open the small door at the lower part of the
cabinet
• Turn the yellow stop upwards
• Pull out the reservoir
• Open the small cover and let the water flow down
• Close the small cover and re-insert the reservoir.
