Electrical requirements
WARNING!
ELECTRICITY CAN BE
EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
EARTHED.
This appliance is fitted with a moulded-on
non-rewireable plug (in the UK fitted with
a 13 Amp fuse).
The plug should be accessible for
disconnection after the appliance has been
installed.

CORD
AIR INLET
VENTS
HOT AIR OUTLET
IMPORTANT: This dryer must be
installed such that the air inlets and
outlet are not restricted (fig. 1).
There should be a gap of at least 12mm
(0.5 inches) between the sides and rear of
the machine and the surrounding walls and
cabinets.
To ensure adequate ventilation the space
between the bottom of the machine and the
floor must not be obstructed.
NEVER install the dryer up against
curtains.
Prevent items from falling or collecting
behind the dryer as these may obstruct the
air inlet and outlet.
A venting hose is supplied with this
tumble dryer.
The use of the venting hose to exhaust hot
air to the external atmosphere is strongly
recommended to ensure maximum drying
efficiency. Protect the external outlet from
prevailing winds to ensure back-draughts
do not reduce the drying performance.
4
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 may be fitted through a wall or
through an open door or window (fig.2).
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
Preparing the load
Before using the dryer for the first time
wipe the inside of the drum and door with a
damp cloth.
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.
Clothes preparation
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.
Warning:
Do not overload the drum, large items
when wet can exceed the maximum
admissible clothes load (for example:
sleeping bags, duvets).
Maximum drying weight
● Cottons Max. 6 kg
● Synthetics Max. 3 kg
Sort the load as follows:
A) By care symbols
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.
B) By amount and thickness
Whenever the load is bigger than the
dryer capacity, separate clothes
according to thickness (e.g. towels from
thin underwear).
C) 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.
D) By drying level
● Sort into: Iron dry, cupboard dry, etc.
● For delicate articles press the ‘HEAT
SETTING’ button to select low drying
temperature.
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).
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.
NEVER exceed the maximum weight,
this will waste time and electricity.
ALWAYS check that the filter is clean
before every drying cycle.
NEVER put dripping wet items into
the tumble dryer, this may damage the
appliance.
