Material thickness: whenever there is greater load than the dryer can handle,
separate laundry according to weight (e.g. dry towels and thin underwear separately).
Type of material: cotton (linen); synthetic textiles (easy care).
Degree of drying: cupboard dry, iron dry etc.
Do not tumble dry: nylon stockings, delicate embroidery, fabrics with metallic
decorations, bulky items such as sleeping bags or pillows.
Check that all fastenings are closed and that pockets are empty.
Please ensure that there are no cigarette lighters in the laundry.
Turn laundry inside out.
Place laundry loosely in the drum to achieve equal drying throughout.
Then close the door.
Select the drying programme required by turning the programme selector knob (for
information, refer to programme table).
Select the option required by pressing the corresponding button.
The indicator lamp above the relevant button lights up to confirm your selection.
A fast blinking lamp indicates a wrong selection is made (incompatible options).
Press the button again to cancel the option.
Starting dryer
The drying programme is started by pressing the “Start (Pause)” button.
The relevant indicator lamp lights up.
Changing programme selection: If the programme selected is changed during
drying, the dryer stops. The “Start (Pause)” indicator lamp flashes.
To operate the new programme, press the “Start (Pause)” button again.
Interrupting programme: To interrupt a drying cycle, press the “Start (Pause)”
button and open the door. Wait at least 5 minutes, to allow the laundry to cool down,
before you unload the dryer. For your safety the drying cycle stops automatically if
you open the door.To restart, after door opening, close the door and press the “Start
(Pause)” button again.
Warning: Never stop a tumble dryer before the end of the drying cycle, unless all
items are quickly removed and spread out so that the heat is dissipated.
Programme end –
unloading dryer
The final part of a drying cycle occurs without heat (cool down cycle) to ensure that
the items reach a lower temperature to avoid wrinkling.
Anticrease: If the laundry is not removed at the end of the drying cycle, an automatic
anti-crease cycle will operate for maximum 15 min (by choosing the option
“Anticrease” this time can be extended up to 12 hours).
The drum rotates to prevent the laundry from creasing.
End: Take the laundry out of the dryer.
The drying process is complete and the anti-crease phase has been reached (active).
Switching dryer off
Set the programme selector knob to “Off” (“O”).
Cleaning the lint filter after every cycle: open door, pull lint filter up and out of machine and open it. Brush lint using a soft
brush or your fingertips. Close door filter and push firmly back into place.
Emptying water container: pull container out by the handle and empty. Replace the container when empty by pushing it
completely back into place.
Please note: Only use additives/plastic items specified as dryer safe and rinse items that have been treated with stain remover
thoroughly in plenty of water before drying. Never dry rubber objects or objects stained with vegetable oils in the dryer.
The Manufacturer is not liable for any damage to laundry resulting from inadequate or incorrect fabric care instructions which

TRKA Koblenz 4590 – Quick Reference Guide
Indicator lamps and Options
Programme selector knob
“Remaining time” display
The drying programme is selected by turning
this knob.
The “Start (Pause)” indicator lamp flashes.
Depending on the programme selected a
default drying time is displayed.
After start of cycle the time displayed is
corrected depending on the volume, type and
moisture of the laundry.
The drying time specified is a calculated
value which will be updated during the
drying cycle.
The flashing lines indicate that the calculation
is running.
The remaining time will be updated.
“Start (Pause)” button
The drying programme is started by pressing
this button.
The indicator lamp lights up.
Door Filter
The indicator lamp lights up when the door
filter needs to be cleaned.
Clean the door filter at the end of every
drying cycle.
Eco Monitor
The “Eco monitor” gives you a rough
feedback about the energy consumption of
the selected programme.
This function will not work for a time based
programme.
As soon as you turn the programme selector
to any humidity steared programme, the
“Eco monitor” lamps will indicate the
expected energy consumption.
Bottom Filter
This indicator lamp lights up when the bottom
filter needs to be cleaned.
This indicator lamp is blinking, when the
bottom filter is not correctly positioned.
Please take care that the bottom filter is
correctly inserted and the handle is fully
engaged.
Water container
The indicator lamp lights up when the water
container needs to be emptied.
The drying cycle is automatically interrupted.
Empty the container and restart the drying
programme.
Empty the water container after every
drying cycle
The three indicators show the degree of
consumption: the less energy your
programme setting is forecasted to consume,
the less indicators will light up.
This depends on the programme, initial
moisture and options selected, and also on
the size of the load.
For that reason, the forecasted degree of
energy consumption may adapt when the
tumble dryer detects the load size.
End
The drying programme is finished.
Please unload the dryer.

Overdry protection
Anticrease
The indicator lights up when a humidity
controlled programme is selected, to indicate
the activated protection function.
This option can be chosen to reduce
wrinkling, when the laundry is not unloaded
directly after end of the cycle.
The drum turns from time to time for
maximum 12 hours.
It can be interrupted at any time by switching
off the dryer.
This option deactivates the “Buzzer”
function, if it is activated.
Dryness level
By selecting this option you can adjust the
dryness level of the laundry.
After the selection of the desired programme
you can choose the dryness level by pressing
the button.
Drum light

level.
The drum light can be switched on and off.
Finish in
With this function you can postpone your
programme to complete at a later time: press
the button to select in how many hours the
programme shall be finished.
• Thus, it allows you to have your laundry
ready at a particular time and to profit
from more favourable energy rates during
the night, for example.
• The “Finish in” function can be selected
in full hour time segments (1 to 24 h).
When you press the button, the shortest
possible time will be displayed; keep on
pressing the button to loop through all the
available times.
To remove it again, set the index of the
programme selector knob to the “Off”
position.
• When you have selected the desired
“Finish in” time, press “Start” – the
countdown will begin.
• During the countdown, you can still
modify the option setting (select or
deselect options).
• Sometimes the programme may finish
before the selected “Finish in” time has
expired (e.g. for small loads).
In this case, the dryer will tumble the
laundry regularly to keep it fresh, until the
selected “Finish in” time has expired.
During tumbling, the display will show an
animation.
The tumbling phase can be stopped at
any time either by pressing any button, by
rotating the programme selector or by
opening the door.
Reset
During the selection phase of the
programme, pressing this button will switch
off all settings of selected options.
During running drying cycle the pressing of
the button will stop the cycle and set the
dryer back in selection mode.
