Ventilation
For your safety, this
dryer must be correctly
installed.
If there is any doubt
about installation, call
the national GIAS
Service number for
advice.
08705 400 600
(Eire 018301 666)
Adequate ventilation must be provided in the room where the
tumble dryer is located to prevent gases from appliances
burning other fuels, including open fires, being drawn into the
room during operation of the tumble dryer.
● Exhaust air must not be discharged into a flue which is
used for exhausting fumes from appliances burning gas or
other fuels.
●
Check regularly that the air flowing through the dryer is
not restricted.
●
Check the fluff filter after use, and clean, if necessary.
●
The inlet and outlets should be kept free from
obstructions. To ensure adequate ventilation the space
between the bottom of the machine and the floor must
not be obstructed. There should be a gap of at least
12mm between the machine and any obstructions.
●
Prevent items from falling or collecting behind the dryer
as these may obstruct the air inlet and outlet.
●
NEVER install the dryer up against curtains.
If the dryer is installed under a worktop or built-in, it is
essential to use the venting hose to carry the hot moist air
away from the dryer otherwise re-circulation of the moist air
will prevent the dryer from working efficiently.
The hose is assembled and fitted to the machine as shown.
The hose may be fitted through a wall or through an open
door or window (Fig. 1). The hose is 95mm (3.75 inches) in
diameter and will extend up to 1.8 metres (6 feet).
Venting hoses longer than 1.8 metres (6 feet) are not
recommended as the dryer performance will be reduced.
Ensure that the venting hose is not kinked as this will prevent
the dryer from working efficiently.

Preparing the load
Before using the tumble dryer for the first time:
●
Please read this instruction book thoroughly.
●
Remove all items packed inside drum.
●
Wipe the inside of the drum and door with a damp cloth
to remove any dust which may have settled in transit.
Clothes preparation
Make sure that the laundry you are going to dry is suitable for
drying in a tumble dryer, as shown by the care symbols on each
item.
Check that all fastenings are closed and that pockets are
empty. Turn the articles inside out. Place clothes loosely in the
drum to make sure that they don’t get tangled.
Maximum drying weight
●
Cottons Max. 6 kg
●
Synthetics Max. 3 kg
Do not overload the
drum, large items when
wet can exceed the
maximum admissible
clothes load
(for example: sleeping
bags, duvets).
Sort the load as follows:
●
By care symbols
These can be found on the collar or inside seam:
Suitable for tumble drying.
Tumble drying at high temperature.
Tumble drying at low temperature only.
Do not tumble dry.
If the item does not have a care label it must be
assumed that it is not suitable for tumble drying.
●
By amount and thickness
Whenever the load is bigger than the dryer capacity,
separate clothes according to thickness (e.g. towels from
thin underwear).
●
By type of fabric
Cottons/linen: Towels, cotton jersey, bed and table linen.
Synthetics: Blouses, shirts, overalls, etc. made of polyester
or polyamid, as well as for cotton/synthetic mixes.
●
By drying level
Sort into: iron dry, cupboard dry, etc. For delicate articles
press the ‘ACRYLICS/SYNTHETICS’ button to select low
drying temperature.

Drying advice
IMPORTANT: Do not dry
articles which have been
treated with a dry
cleaning fluid or rubber
clothes (danger of fire
or explosion).
Do not tumble dry:
Woollens, silk, delicate fabrics, nylon stockings, delicate
embroidery, fabrics with metallic decorations, garments with
PVC or leather trimmings, training shoes, bulky items such as
sleeping bags, etc.
Energy saving
Only put into the tumble dryer laundry which has been
thoroughly wrung or spin-dried. The drier the laundry the
shorter the drying time thus saving electricity.
ALWAYS
●
Try to dry the maximum weight of laundry, this will save
time and electricity.
●
Check that the filter is clean before every drying cycle.
NEVER
●
Exceed the maximum weight, this will waste time and
electricity.
●
Put dripping wet items into the tumble dryer, this may
damage the appliance.

Operation
Refer to the Drying guide table or the fabric labels to select
the most suitable programme.
●
Open the door and load the drum with laundry. Ensure
that garments do not hinder closure of the door.
●
If drying delicate items press the ‘ACRYLICS/SYNTHETICS’
button to reduce the heat level. Press again on
completion, to select high temperature.
HIGH heat setting
LOW heat setting
●
Turn the ‘DRYING TIME’ Selector until the required drying
time aligns with the dial.
●
The Fast Iron programme provides a conditioning and
anti-crease function. The dryer will heat the load for 8
minutes followed by a 2 minute cool down period and is
especially good for garments which may have been left
for some time prior to ironing, in a linen basket for
example. Garments may also become stiffened when
dried outside on a washing line or inside on radiators. The
Fast Iron process relaxes the creases in the fabric making
ironing quicker and easier.
●
Gently close the door pushing it slowly until you hear the
door ‘click’ shut.
●
Press the ‘ON’ button. The indicator will light and the
drying cycle begins.
●
The load is dried by tumbling in thermostatically
controlled warm air. Cool air is used for the last 15
minutes to reduce creasing and cool the load ready for
handling.
●
When the program is fully completed the drum will stop
rotating and the dial will point to 0.
●
Open the door and remove the load.
●
Clean the filter after every drying cycle to ensure
maximum dryer efficiency.
WARNING!
The drum, door and
load may be very hot.
