Important information
EN
To ensure that the condenser dryer functions
efficiently, the following routine maintenance
procedures must be carried out:
Fluff filter – CLEAN off any fluff build-up on the
filter after each drying cycle.
Failure to clean the filter after each drying cycle
can undermine drying performance as the machine
takes longer to dry and thus consumes more
energy.
Water container – empty the water container after
each drying cycle.
Step 1
Open the dryer door by pressing
it as shown in the picture.
2
Step 1
Pull the water container towards
you and remove it completely
from the dryer.
Step 2
Empty all the water in the water
container.
Step 2
Pull out the filter (using two
fingers).
Step 3
Clean off any fluff build-up on the
internal surface of the filter.
Step 3
Replace the water container
making sure that it is securely
fixed.
Failure to empty the water container may cause the
following:
- The dryer stops heating (thus the load may still be
damp at the end of the drying cycle).
- The “Empty water container” LED activates to
show that the water container is full.
Filling of the Water Container
Step 4
Replace the filter – never operate
the dryer without the filter in
place.
2
When the dryer is first used water will not
immediately enter the water container as the pump
needs to be primed. This is done automatically
and will take a few minutes, during this period the
efficiency of the drying process is not affected.
Heat Pump Filter Unit - You must clean the fluff
from the filter every five drying cycles to maintain
the correct functioning of your dryer !
However for optimum performance and to save
energy we recommend that it is cleaned before
each drying cycle.
EN
Step 1
Open the heat pump filter
Cover.
- hold the handle and pull
towards you.
Step 5
Refit the filter unit - ensure that the unit is pushed in fully,
then turn all 4 clips into the horizontal position to lock the
cover.
Step 2
Remove the filter unit by
rotating the 4 clips to the
vertical position then pulling
the filter unit towards you.
(There may be some water in
the filter this is normal).
Failure to clean Heat Pump Filter will reduce the
drying performance and could cause premature
failure of your dryer.
To maintain optimum drying performance we
recommend you clean this filter after every drying
cycle.
! Warning: The front of the heat pump is made from thin
metal plates.
Take care that you do not damage these or cut yourself
when cleaning, removing or replacing the filter unit.
Step 3
If there is any build up of
fluff on the plates Carefully
clean this off with a damp
cloth, sponge or vacuum
cleaner.
Never use your Fingers.
Step 4
Seperate the two parts of
the filter unit, clean any fluff
deposits from the inside
surface of the filter mesh.
Clean the seals.
Assemble the two parts.

Installation
10 mm
• Install the dryer far from gas ranges, stoves, radiators or hobs, as
flames may damage it. The dryer
should be installed in an ambient
room temperature of between 20
to 23°C for optimum performance. But will function if the room is
between 14 and 30°C.
If the dryer is installed below a
15 mm
15 mm
worktop, ensure there are 10 mm
between the upper panel of the
dryer and any objects above it,
and 15 mm between the sides of
the machine and the walls or furniture units adjacent to it. This
ensures adequate air circulation.
! The power cord must not be bent or squashed.
! The power cord is supplied fitted with a BS1363 plug and with
a 13 amp BS1362 fuse. If it is necessary to fit a replacement
fuse, it must be a 13 Amp ASTA approved to BS1362 type.
WARNING: The plug must not be used without a fuse cover. If a
replacement fuse holder/cover is required, it must be of the same
colour coding or wording as shown on the base of the plug.
Replacements are available from authorised dealers.
Moulded plug
Ventilation
• The room must be adequately ventilated while the dryer is
running. Make sure that the dryer is installed in a room free of
humidity and with adequate air circulation. The flow of air around
the dryer is essential to allow water to condense during drying;
the dryer will not function properly if it is placed in an enclosed
space or inside a cabinet.
! Some condensation may form if the dryer is used in a small or
cold room.
! We do not recommend that the dryer is installed in a cupboard
but the dryer must never be installed behind a lockable door, a
sliding door or a door with a hinge on the opposite side to that of
the dryer door.
Changing the plug
The wires in the power cord are coloured in accordance with the
following.
Green and Yellow (Earth)
wire to terminal marked “E”,
symbol x, or coloured green
and yellow.
If your dryer is installed next to a drain the water can be
plumbed into this drain. This does away with the need to
empty the water container. If the dryer is stacked onto or
installed next to a washing machine it can share the same
drain. The height of the drain must be less than 3’ (1 m)
from the bottom of the dryer. Remove existing hose from position
shown in picture A and fit a suitable length of hose and connect
as shown in picture B.
! Make sure that the hose is not squashed or kinked
when the dryer is in its final location.

! If the plug being replaced is a non-rewirable type, then the cut-
off plug must be disposed of safely. DO NOT leave it where it can
be inserted into a socket and create a shock hazard.
! The power cord should be checked periodically and replaced
by a cord specially prepared for this dryer and fitted only by
authorized technicians (see Service). New or longer power cords
are supplied at an extra charge by authorized dealers.
! The manufacturer denies any responsibility should any of these
rules not be followed.
! If in doubt about any of the above consult a qualified
electrician.
Levelling the tumble dryer
The dryer must be installed level for correct operation.
Picture B
Electrical connections
Before plugging the appliance into the socket, check the following:
• Make sure your hands are dry.
• The socket must have an earth connection.
• The socket must be able to withstand the machine’s maximum power output as indicated on the data plate (see Description of the tumble dryer).
• The power supply voltage must fall within the values indicated
on the data plate (see Description of the tumble dryer).
• The socket must be compatible with the dryer’s plug. Should
this not be the case, replace the plug or the socket.
! Do not use extension cords.
! The dryer must not be installed outdoors, even if the space is
sheltered. It can be very dangerous if exposed to rain or storms.
! Once installed, the dryer’s electrical wire and plug must be
within reach.

When you have installed your dryer in its final location check that
it is level first side-to-side, then front to back. If the dryer is not
level, adjust the two legs up or down until your dryer is level.
Preliminary information
Once the tumble dryer is installed, clean the inside of the drum
before operating it and remove any dirt accumulated during
transportation.
Warning ! Before you use your dryer ensure that its has
been in a upright position for at least 6 hours.

Energy Saver Cycles
The Energy Saver Cycles reduce energy consumption and so they not only help the environment, they also cut your energy bill!
Energy Saver Cycles are available for several different types of fabric. They have all been designed to give excellent drying performance for
small loads.
Energy Saver Cycles give the best drying results thanks to perfect temperature regulation and to accurate humidity detection which
is optimized to obtain the best result on small load.
! The duration of this program will depend on the size of the load and the spin speed used in your washer.
Delicates
• This is a programme for drying your Delicate Clothes i.e. Acrylics.
• It can be used for load sizes up to 2.0 kg.
• Loads dried using this programme are usually ready to use, but on some garments may be slightly damp. If this is found try
removing the load and open them out or turn inside out then run the programme again for a short period.
! The duration of this program will depend on the size of the load and the spin speed used in your washer.
Wool Programme
This programme is specific for items that withstand tumble drying and are labelled with the symbol. It is suitable for loads of up
to 1 kg (about 3 jerseys). We recommend turning the garments inside out before drying them. This programme lasts about 1:00
(hrs:mins), although it may last longer depending on the size and density of the load and on the spin speed used during the wash
cycle. Garments dried with this programme are usually ready to be worn, although the edges of heavier garments may be slightly
damp. Leave them to dry naturally, as an additional drying process may damage them.
Unlike other materials, the shrinking process in wool is irreversible, i.e. the garment does not resume its original dimension and shape.
This programme is not suited for acrylic items.
8
Jeans Programme
This programme is suited to washing cotton denim jeans. Turn the front pockets inside out before drying the jeans. It is suitable for
loads of up to 3 kg (about 4 pairs).
Garments dried using this programme are usually ready to be worn, though edges and seams may be slightly damp. In this occurs,
turn the jeans inside out and reactivate the programme for a short while.
! The duration of this program will depend on the size of the load and the spin speed used in your washer.
Use this cycle for 100% cotton garments only; do not mix dark and light colours and avoid using this programme for garments with
embroidery and accessories (elastic strings around the waist area, brooches, etc.); turn pockets inside out.
Special Shoes Programme
This programme is specific for drying sports shoes. The shoes must have been previously washed and spun at a minimum spin
speed of 400 revolutions.
A specific shoe rack is provided and must be used, otherwise the dryer will be damaged if shoes are dried in the drum. Remove the
filter from its holder on the front part of the dryer and position the shoe rack.
Place shoelaces inside the shoes then load with the tips of the shoes facing downwards and the soles frontwards.
Drying times vary according to the shape and type of the shoe. If the shoes are not completely dry at the end of the programme,
restart the programme.
Do not dry shoes that have gel or flashing lights inside them. Only dry shoes made of synthetic material or rope. Once the programme ends, remove the shoe rack and replace the filter into its holder.
Sportwear Programme
This programme is studied for safely drying garments such as tracksuits and shorts bearing the symbol. It is ideal for clothes
which do not need to be dried fully. Suitable for loads of up to 4 kg. We suggest turning garments inside out before drying them.
! The duration of this program will depend on the size of the load and the spin speed used in your washer.
Outwear Programme
This programme is specific for drying water-repellent fabrics and sports jackets (e.g. Gore-Tex, polyester, nylon). Drying the garment
after a wash cycle has a beneficial effect as it reactivates the garment’s water-repellent treatment.
It can be used for loads of up to 2 kg.
! The duration of this program will depend on the size of the load and the spin speed used in your washer.
Easy Iron
A short 10-minute programme that relaxes the garment’s fibres in order to facilitate ironing and folding.
This programme is particularly recommended for cotton or mixed cotton fabrics.
For optimal results, do not overload the drum (the following values refer to the weight of dry garments):
Fabric: maximum load
Cotton and mixed cotton: 2.5 kg
Synthetic garments: 2 kg
Jeans: 2 kg
Empty the dryer as soon as the programme ends; hang, fold or iron garments then place them in the wardrobe. If this is not possible, repeat the programme.
As this is not a drying programme, it is not to be used for garments that are still wet.
The effect produced by the programme varies according to the characteristics of the each fabric: fabrics such as acrylic fibres or
Tencel® do not give the same results as traditional fibres (e.g. cotton).
Refresh
A short programme suitable for refreshing fibres and garments. It lasts about 20 minutes.
! As this is not a drying programme, it is not to be used for garments that are still wet.

Special garments
• Amount of laundry: single items and small loads may take
longer to dry.
Blankets and bedcovers: acrylic items (Acilian, Courtelle,
Orion, Dralon) must be dried with great care at low heat.
Avoid drying for long periods.
• Drying: if items are to be ironed, they can be removed
from the dryer while still slightly damp. Items that require
complete drying can be left longer.
Creased or pleated garments: read the drying instructions
supplied by the manufacturer.
• Heat setting.
• Temperature of the room: the lower the temperature of the
room, the longer it will take for the dryer to dry clothing.
Starched garments: do not dry together with non-starched
items. Remove the maximum amount of starch solution possible before placing these items in the dryer. Do not over-dry:
starch turns powdery leaving garments limp – this defeats its
purpose.
• Bulk: certain bulky items require special care during the
drying process. We suggest removing these items and
replacing them in the dryer once they have been shaken
out: repeat this procedure several times during the course
of the drying cycle.
Drying times
! Do not over-dry items.
All fabrics contain natural dampness which helps to keep
them soft and fluffy.
Drying times are approximate and may vary depending on
the following:
• Amount of water retained by items after the spin cycle:
towels and delicate items retain a lot of water.
The drying times provided refer to the automatic Cupboard
dry programmes.
The Timed drying settings are also indicated to enable you
to select the most suitable timed option.
The weight refers to dry items.
• Fabrics: items of the same fabric, but with different texture
and thickness may have different drying times.

To minimise the risk of fire in your tumble dryer, the
following should be observed:
• Tumble dry items only if they have been washed with
detergent and water, rinsed and been through the spin cycle.
It is a fire hazard to dry items that HAVE NOT been washed
with water.
• ●Do not dry garments that have been treated with chemical
products.
• Do not tumble dry items that have been spotted or soaked
with vegetable or cooking oils, this constitutes a fire hazard.
Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously,especially when
exposed to heat sources such as a tumble dryer. The items
become warm, causing an oxidisation reaction with the oil,
Oxidisation creates heat. If the heat cannot escape, items
can become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or
storing oil-effected items can prevent heat from escaping
and so create a fire hazard.If it is unavoidable that fabrics
containing vegetable or cooking oil or those that have been
contaminated with hair care products be placed in a tumble
dryer they should first be washed with extra detergent - this
will reduce, but not eliminate the hazard. The cool tumble
phase should be used to reduce the temperature of the
items. They should not be removed from the dryer and piled
or stacked while hot.
• Do not tumble dry items that have previously been cleaned
in or washed in, soaked in or soiled with petrol/gasoline,
dry cleaning solvents or other flammable or explosive
substances. Highly flammable substances commonly used
in domestic environments including cooking oil, acetone,
denatured alcohol, kerosene, spot removers, turpentine,
waxes and wax removers. Ensure these items have been
washed in hot water with an extra amount of detergent
before being dried in the tumble dryer.
• ●Do not tumble dry items containing foam rubber (also known
as latex foam), or similarly textured rubber like materials.
Foam rubber materials can, when heated, produce fire by
spontaneous combustion.
• ●Fabric softener or similar products should not be used in a
tumble dryer to eliminate the effects of static electricity unless
the practice is specifically recommended by the manufacturer
of the fabric softener product.
• Do not tumble dry undergarments that contain metal
reinforcements eg. bras with metal reinforcing wires. Damage
to the tumble dryer can result if the metal reinforcements
come loose during drying.
• ●Do not tumble dry rubber, plastic articles such as shower
caps or babies waterproof covers, polythene or paper.
• Do not tumble dry rubber backed articles, clothes fitted with
foam rubber pads, pillows, galoshes and rubber coated
tennis shoes.
• Remove all objects from pockets, especially lighters.
! WARNING: Never stop the dryer before the end of the drying
cycle unless all items are quickly removed and spread out so
that the heat is dissipated.
Save energy and respect the environment
• Wring out all items to eliminate excess water before
tumble drying (if you use a washing machine first, select
a high spin cycle). Doing this will save time and energy
during drying.
• Always dry full loads - you save energy: single items or
small loads take longer to dry.
• Clean the filter after each use to contain energy
consumption costs (see Maintenance).

Disconnecting the power supply
! Disconnect the dryer when not in use or during cleaning
and maintenance operations.
Cleaning the filter after each cycle
The filter is a fundamental component of the dryer: its function
is to collect lint and fluff that form during drying.
Clean the filter once drying is completed, by rinsing it under running water or cleaning it with a vacuum cleaner. Should the filter
become clogged, the flow of air inside the dryer will be seriously
hampered: drying times becomes longer and more energy is
consumed. Moreover, the dryer may become damaged.
The filter is located in front of the dryer seal (see Picture).
Removing the filter:
1. Pull the filter’s plastic handle upwards (see Picture).
2. Clean the fluff off the filter
and replace it correctly. Ensure that the filter is pushed
fully home.
! Do not use the dryer unless
the filter has been replaced in
its holder.
Checking the drum after each cycle
Rotate the drum manually to remove smaller items (handkerchiefs) that could have been left inside the dryer.
Cleaning the drum
! Avoid using abrasives, steel wool or stainless steel cleaning
agents to clean the drum. A coloured film may appear on the
stainless steel drum surface: it may be caused by a combination of water and/or cleaning agents such as wash-softeners.
This coloured film does not affect the dryer’s performance.
Emptying the water container after
each cycle
Cleaning the Heat Pump Filter Unit
• Periodically (every 5 drying cycles) remove Heat pump filter
unit and clean any build up of fluff from the surface of the
filter by rinsing it under running water or with your vacuum
cleaner.
We however recommend that you clean this filter after
every drying cycle to optimize the dryers performance.
To remove Heat pump filter unit:
1. Unplug the dryer and open the door.
2. Remove the filter unit by rotating the 4 clips to the vertical
position then pulling the filter unit towards you.
3. Separate the two parts of the filter
unit and clean the surface of the filter.
! Warning: The front of the heat
pump is made from thin metal
plates.
Take care that you do not damage
these or cut yourself when cleaning,
removing or replacing the filter unit.
4. If there is any build up of fluff on
the plates Carefully clean this off with a damp cloth,sponge
or vacuum cleaner. Never use your Fingers.
5. Assemble the two parts of the filter clean the surface of
the seals and replace with the 4 clips into the horizontal
position, sure that the catches have been secured.
Cleaning the tumble dryer
• The external metal, plastic and rubber parts can be cleaned with a damp cloth.
• Clean the front air intake grille regularly (every 6 months)
with a vacuum cleaner to remove any lint, fluff or dust
deposits. Furthermore, remove any lint deposits from the
front part of the condenser and from the filter area, using a
vacuum cleaner every so often.
! Do not use solvents or abrasives.
! Have the dryer checked regularly by authorised technical
personnel in order to ensure that the electrical and mechanical parts work safely (see Assistance).
Remove the water container and empty it into a sink or other
suitable drain outlet, then replace it correctly.
Always check the water container and empty it before starting a new drying cycle.
