Safety Warnings
● Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable or cooking oil constitule a fire hazard and
shoul no be placed in a tumble dryer. Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when
exposed to heat sources such as in a tumble dryer.The items become warm, causing an oxidation
reaction in the oil. Oxidation creates heat. If the heat can not escape, the item s can become hot
enough to catch fire. Pilling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can prevent heat from escaping
and so create a fire hazard. If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or
have been contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer they should first be
washed in hot water with extra degergent- this will reduce but not eliminate , the hazard. The « cool
down » cycle of the tumble dryers should be used to reduce the temprature of the items. They
should not be removed from the tumble dryer or piled or stacked while hot.
● Items that have been previously clean in, washed in, soaked in or spotted wth petrol/gasoline, dry
cleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive substances should not be placed in a tumble
dryer. Highly flammable substances commonly used in demosetic environments include acetone,
denatured alcohol, perol/gasoline, kerosene, spot removers (some brands), turpentine, waxes
and wax removers.
● Items containing foam rubber ( also known as latex foam) or similarly textured rubber, like
materials should not be dried in a tumble dryer on a heat setting.
● Fabric softeners or similar products should not be used in a tumble dryer to eleminate the effects
of static electricity unless this practce is specifically recommended by the manufacturer of the
fabric softener or product.
● Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
Damage tot he tumble dryer can result if the metal reinforcements come loose during drying. When
available a drying rack could be used for such items.
● Plastic articles such as shower caps or babies waterproof napkin covers should not be placed in
a tumble dryer.
● Rubber-backed articles, closthes fitted with foam rubber pads, pillows, galoshes and rubbercoated tennis shoes should not be placed in a tumble dryer.
● Check that the product has no visible signs of damage before use. If damaged do not use and
please call Customer Care.
● Do not use adapters, multiple connectors and/or extensions.
● Never install the dryer against curtains and be sure to prevent items from falling or collecting behind
the dryer.
● The appliance must not be installed behind a lockable door, a sliding door or a door with a hinge on
the opposite side to that of the tumble dryer.

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.
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.
IMPORTANT: Do not dry articles which
have been treated with a dry cleaning fluid or
rubber clothes (danger of fire or explosion).
During the last 15 minutes (roughly) the
load is always tumbled in cool air
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.
● Try to dry the maximum weight of laundry, this
will save time and electricity.
● Check that the filter is clean before every
drying cycle.
● Exceed the maximum weight, this will waste
time and electricity.
● Put dripping wet items into the tumble dryer,
this may damage the appliance.
Maximum Drying Weight
● Cottons
● Synthetics
Max. 7 kg
Max. 3.5 kg
Do not overload the drum, large items
when wet can exceed the maximum admissible
clothes load (for example: sleeping bags,
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.

The Sensor Dry machine gives many options for drying the laundry
to suit all circumstances. The table on the next page lists the
programmes and the function of each programme.
The sensor may not detect a small load of small articles. For small
loads and separate items or pre-dried fabrics with low moisture
content, use the timed programmes.
If the sensor does not detect the item the dryer will only operate for
10 minutes before going into cooldown.
If the load is too large or too wet to tumble dry the dryer will
automatically go into cooldown after approximately 3 hours.
In these cases we advise to use a time cycles between 30 and
75minutes depending on the load size and dryness required, and
select high or low heat depending upon the fabric type.
Bone Dry
Store Dry
Hang Dry
Iron Dry
Select the degree of dryness that you require. This range from
for bath towels and bathrobes, through
for items that will be
put away without ironing, to the programme that leaves the laundry
suitable for ironing.
The programme provides a conditioning and anticrease function.
The dryer will heat the load for 9 minutes followed by a 3 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.
This programme relaxes the creases in the fabric making ironing
quicker and easier.

Rapid 40'
The Rapid 40' programme allows a drying cycle to be completed
quickly. This is an ideal programme for having dry, refreshed and
ready-to-wear clothes in less than 40'. This special programme
constantly monitors the temperature in the drum. The maximum load
is 2 kg and the programme is suitable for all types of fabrics where
tumble drying is appropriate.
