Important safety information
These warnings have been provided in the interest of safety. You MUST read them carefully before installing or
using the appliance.
Installation
General safety
• Any electrical work required to install this appliance
should be carried out by a qualified electrician or
competent person.
• It is dangerous to alter the specifications or attempt
to modify this product in any way.
• 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 Zanussi Service
Centre. Always insist on genuine Zanussi spare
parts.
• Care must be taken to ensure that the appliance
does not stand on the electrical supply cable.
• If the machine is situated on a carpeted floor,
please adjust the feet in order to allow air to
circulate freely.
Use
• This appliance is designed for domestic use only. If
the machine is used for any other purposes or is
not used correctly, the manufacturer accepts no
responsibility for any damage that might occur.
• Always unplug the appliance after use.
• Clothes which are dripping wet should not be
placed in the dryer.
• Danger of explosion: Never tumble dry items that
have been in contact with inflammable solvents
(petrol, methylated spirits, dry cleaning fluid and
the like). As these substances are volatile, they
could cause an explosion. Tumble dry only items
washed with water.
• Please make sure that no gas lighters have
accidentally been left in pockets of garments to be
loaded into appliance.
• Do not dry canvas shoes or sports shoes, as they
could get stuck between the door and the drum,
thus blocking this latter.
• Leave the door slightly ajar when the appliance is
not being used. This will allow the seal to be
preserved.
• Clean fluff filter after using tumble dryer. To
prevent fire risks, do not use the appliance if the
fluff filter is damaged or without filter.

• When the appliance is to be scrapped, cut off the
electrical supply cable and destroy the plug with
the remaining cable. Disable the door catch in
order to prevent children from becoming trapped
inside while playing.
Child safety
• 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 be dangerous to children - danger
of suffocation! Keep them out of children’s reach.
• Make sure that children or pets do not climb into
the drum.
Disposal
• Packaging materials
The materials marked with the symbol
recyclable.
• Machine
are
Use authorised disposal sites for your old appliance.
Help to keep your country tidy!
This means that they can be recycled by disposing of
them properly in appropriate collection containers.
Tips for environmental protection
To save energy and to help protect the environment,
we recommend that you follow these hints:
• 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 finishdry the rest of the load.
• 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 filter and condenser unit regularly to
avoid excessive drying times and high electricity
consumption.
• Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids creasing and
saves energy.
Select the drying programme 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.

Positioning
Stacking kit
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.
A special stacking kit is available through your
dealer, to enable the mounting of the dryer on top of
your washing machine.
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.
P1044
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 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.
In order to connect the hose to the appliance
proceed as follows:
Important
• Remove the clamp (A);
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.
• Pull out the plug (B);
• Insert the drain hose (C);
• Fasten the hose (C) to the appliance using the
clamp (A).
When operating the tumble dryer, the room
temperature must not exceed 35°C, as it may affect
the performance of the appliance.

• 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).
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
700 - 1000 g
Tablecloth
• 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.
400 - 500 g
Kitchen towel
70 - 120 g
Table napkin
50 - 100 g
Towelling hand towel
Bathrobe
• 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.
• 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 30 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:
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.

You must disconnect the appliance from the
electricity supply, before you can carry out any
cleaning or maintenance work.
Also clean the outside, removing all fluff.
Clean the rubber seal round the porthole door and
the seal of the condenser in the inner door with a
damp cloth.
External cleaning
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.
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.
Do not use this appliance if the condenser
has not been fitted.
Cleaning the filter
Emptying the water reservoir
The tumble dryer cannot operate efficiently with a
clogged filter. The filter collects all the fluff which
forms during drying and it is therefore essential to
remove and clean this filter after each drying
programme using a damp cloth.
Pull the filter upwards in order to remove it.
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 buzzer will
sound for 1 minute.
The reservoir can be emptied even in the middle of a
programme.
P1026
Important: Remove the fluff around the filter too.
Water
reservoir
Do not use the appliance without filter.
You should not be alarmed by the amount of fluff
which collects on the filter; this is due to normal
wearing of the fabrics dried and not to incorrect
operation of your machine. Rubbing of the fibres
during normal wear and washing forms fluff. If
laundry is dried on a line, this fluff simply flies away,
whereas inside the tumble dryer it collects together
and swells considerably as a result of the drying
action.
The reservoir must be re-inserted correctly.
After inserting the reservoir the START-button
has to be depressed again to allow the programme
to continue.
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 condenser unit
Clean the air condenser periodically, 3 or 4 times a
year depending on how frequently the dryer is used.
Pull out the condenser, holding it at the top, and
remove all fluff. Clean it with a brush and rinse it
under the shower if necessary.
