Synthetics Max. 4 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.

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.
During the last 15 minutes the load
is always tumbled in cool air.

Water Container
The water removed from the laundry during the drying cycle is
collected in a container at the bottom of the dryer.
When the container is full the ‘EMPTY WATER’ indicator on the
control panel will light, and the container MUST be emptied.
However, we recommend that the container is emptied after
each drying cycle.
NOTE: Very little water will collect during the first few cycles
of a new machine as an internal reservoir is filled first.
To remove the container
1.
Gently pull out the tray until it is completely removed.
Support the tray with both hands. When it is full the
water container will weigh about 4kg.
2.
Empty the water from the outlet in the rear of the
container. Slide the water container back into position.
PUSH FIRMLY INTO PLACE.
NOTE: If you have the option of drainage near the dryer it is
possible to use the discharge kit to provide a permanent drain
for the water collected by the dryer. This will remove the need
to empty the water tray. All the information for assembly of
the kit is contained in the kit envelope.

Selecting the Programme
The Hoover Sensor Dry machine gives many options for drying
the laundry to suit all circumstances.
The table below lists the programmes and the function of each
programme.
Note: 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. Set the
programme between 30 and 75 minutes depending on the
load size and dryness required, and select high or low heat
depending upon the fabric type.
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 185 minutes.
Programme
Description
Bone Dry
Select the degree of dryness that you require.
Extra Dry
This ranges from Bone Dry for bath towels and bathrobes, through
Cupboard Dry for items that will be put away without ironing, to the
programmes that leave the laundry suitable for ironing.
Cupboard Dry
Iron Dry
Wool Finish
A gentle programme specially created to get woollens softer after airdrying.
This delicate warm air cycle, lasting 12 minutes, can also be used to get
woollens 'refreshed' after being stored in the wardrobe.
Fast Iron
The Fast Iron 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. The Fast Iron process relaxes the creases in the
fabric making ironing quicker and easier.

11. Following the completion of the cycle the drum will
rotate intermittently to minimise creasing. This will
continue until the machine is reset or switched OFF.
Cancelling and resetting the
programme
To cancel a programme switch the machine off and on again.
The machine will indicate that it has been reset by the START
indicator flashing.
