SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE!

WARNING – To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using your appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following: 1. Read all instructions before using the appliance.

2. Do not dry articles that have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, dry-cleaning solvents, or other flammable or explosive substances, as they give off vapours that could ignite or explode.

3. Do not allow children to play on or in the appliance. Close supervision of children is necessary when the appliance is used near children.

4. Before the appliance is removed from service or discarded, remove the door to the drying compartment.

5. Do not reach into the appliance if the drum is moving.

6. Do not install or store this appliance where it will be exposed to the weather.

7. Do not tamper with controls.

8. Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance or attempt any servicing unless specifically recommended in the user-maintenance instructions or in published user-repair instructions that you understand and have the skills to carry out.

9. Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener or product.

10. Do not use heat to dry articles containing foam rubber or similarly textured rubber-like materials.

After installation, the dryer should stand still for two hours before it is connected to the power mains.

At least two persons are required to install the tumble dryer on top of a washing machine.

WARNING: The dryer may not be connected to the power mains using an extension cord.

Do not connect the tumble dryer to an electrical outlet intended for an electric shaver or a hair dryer.

Do not connect the dryer to power mains using an external switching device such as a programme timer, or connect it to power mains that is regularly switched on and off by the power supply provider.

WARNING: In case of a defect, only use approved spare parts by authorized manufacturers.

WARNING: In case of incorrect dryer connection, incorrect use, or servicing by an unauthorized person, the user shall bear the cost of any damage as such damage shall not be covered by warranty.

Always use the ducts or hoses supplied with the dryer.

Install the dryer in a room with adequate ventilation and a temperature between 50°F (10°C) and 77°F (25°C).

Place the dryer on a level and stable solid (concrete) base.

7

WARNING: Do not place the dryer behind lockable or sliding door, or door with a hinge on the opposite side of the dryer door hinge. Install the dryer in such way that the door can always be freely opened.

Never block the air exhaust (evacuation opening).

WARNING: Do not place the dryer on a carpet with long fibres as this may impede air circulation.

Air in the dryer environment should not contain dust particles. The air where the dryer is installed should be thoroughly ventilated

to prevent reverse flow of gases released from the gas appliances with open fire (e.g. a fireplace).

Make sure the fibres do not accumulate around the dryer.

The appliance may not be in contact with a wall or adjacent furniture.

After installation, let the dryer rest still for 24 hours before using it. If the dryer has to be laid down on one of the sides during transport or servicing, place it with its left side, viewing from the appliance front, downwards.

Do not use the dryer to dry any laundry that has not been washed.

8

Laundry stained with oil, acetone, alcohol, oil derivatives, stain removers, turpentine, wax, and wax removers should be washed in a washing machine with hot water and detergent before it is dried in the dryer.

Clothing that includes latex, rubber parts, shower and bathing caps, and laundry or covers with rubber foam may not be dried in the dryer.

Use laundry conditioners or similar products in compliance with manufacturer's instructions.

WARNING: Remove all objects such as lighters and matches from the pockets.

If the condensate tube is blocked or clogged, then tumble dryer operation is stopped (see chapter »PAUSING AND CHANGING THE PROGRAMME/Full condensate tank«).

Before moving the dryer or before storing it in a non-heated room during the winter, the condensate tank has to be emptied.

Clean the dryer filters after each drying cycle.

If you have removed the filters, replace them before the next drying cycle.

9

WARNING:

Do not use any solvents or cleaning agents that could damage the dryer

(please observe the recommendations and warnings provided by the manufacturers of the cleaning agents).

Never add chemicals or fragrances into the condensate tank

(see chapter »DESCRIPTION OF THE DRYER and EMPTYING THE CONDENSATE TANK«).

After the drying process, unplug the dryer power cord from the power outlet.

The dryer uses a heat pump system to heat the air.

The system consists of a compressor and a heat exchanger.

When the dryer is started, compressor operation (the sound of flowing liquid) or flow of refrigerant may be louder as long as the compressor operates. This is not a sign of malfunction and it will not affect useful life of the dryer. In time and with use of the dryer this noise will become quieter.

The dryer is not intended for use by persons (including children) with physical or mental impairments, or persons with lacking experience and knowledge. These persons should be instructed about the use of the dryer by a person responsible for their safety.

The warranty does not cover

consumables, minor deviations in colour, increased noise that results from appliance age and which does not affect the functionality of the dryer, and aesthetic defects on components, which do not affect the dryer's functionality and safety.

10

CHILD SAFETY Do not allow children to play with the dryer.

SELECTING THE ROOM

4" (10 cm) 2" (5 cm) 4" (10 cm) The dryer may not be in contact with a wall or adjacent furniture. For optimum dryer operation, we recommend observing the clearance from the walls as indicated in the figure. In case of failure to heed the required minimum clearance, the dryer may overheat.

Vents on the back wall and the air exhaust opening on the front side of the dryer should never be obstructed. The room in which you will install the dryer should be sufficiently ventilated, with a temperature between 50°F (10°C) and 77°F (25°C). Dryer operation at a lower environment temperature may result in condensate accumulation in the dryer interior. Do not place the dryer into a place where there is danger of freezing. Frozen water in the condensate tank and pump may damage the dryer.

The dryer emits heat. Therefore, do not place it in a very small room, as the drying process may take longer due to limited amount of available air.

Lighting in the room should be sufficient to allow reading the information on the display unit on the control panel.

WARNING: Appliances are not intended to be installed in a 19

DRYER PLACEMENT

If you also have a Gorenje dryer of corresponding (same) dimensions, it can be placed on top of the Gorenje washing machine; in this case, vacuum feet must be used. Alternatively, the dryer can be placed next to the washing machine (figures 1 and 3).

If your Gorenje washing machine is smaller (minimum depth 21½" (545 mm)) than your Gorenje dryer, then the dryer support has to be purchased extra (figure 2). The supplied vacuum feet must be used; they are designed to prevent the dryer from slipping.

Additional equipment (dryer support (a) and vacuum feet (b) if they are not supplied) are available for purchase at the service units.

The surface on which the appliance is placed should be clean and level. Gorenje washing machine onto which you intend to place the Gorenje dryer should be able to hold the weight of the Gorenje dryer (see chapter »DESCRIPTION OF THE DRYER/Technical information«).

21

ADJUSTING THE DRYER FEET

Level the dryer in longitudinal and traverse direction by rotating the adjustable feet which allow levelling by +/- ½" (+/- 1 cm). Use a spirit level and spanner No. 22.

Floor on which the dryer is placed must have a concrete base. It should be clean and dry; otherwise, the dryer may slide. Also clean the adjustable feet.

The dryer must stand level and stable on a solid base.

Incorrect levelling of the dryer with the adjustable legs may cause vibration, appliance sliding across the room, and loud operation. Incorrect levelling of the dryer shall not be subject to warranty.

Sometimes, unusual or louder noise may appear during appliance operation; these are mostly the result of improper installation.

22

DRAINING THE CONDENSATE

The moisture from the laundry is extracted in the condenser unit and accumulated in the condensate tank.

During the drying process, an indicator light (symbol (7) is lit on the display unit) warns when the condensate tank is full and needs to be emptied.

To avoid emptying the condensate tank, run the condensate discharge hose located at the back of the appliance directly into a drain.

1

Release the hose from the holder on the back wall of the dryer (left hand side, below the top cover).

2

Run the hose into a drain at a height of no more than 31" (80 cm) from the floor.

If you decide to run the condensate drain hose into a drain, make sure the hose is securely fastened. This will prevent any water spillage which could result in unexpected damage.

Always use the hoses supplied with the dryer. 23

CONNECTING TO THE POWER MAINS

2 h After installation, the dryer should stand still for two hours before it is connected to the power mains; this allows the dryer to stabilize.

This appliance must be grounded. In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric current. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance: if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Connect the dryer to a grounded power outlet. After installation, the wall outlet should be freely accessible. The outlet should be fitted with an earth contact (in compliance with the relevant regulations).

Information on your dryer is indicated on the rating plate (see chapter »DESCRIPTION OF THE DRYER/Technical information«).

We recommend using over-voltage protection to protect the appliance in case of a lightning strike.

The dryer may not be connected to the power mains using an extension cord.

Do not connect the tumble dryer to an electrical outlet intended for an electric shaver or a hair dryer.

Any repair and maintenance pertaining to safety or performance should be done by trained experts.

A damaged power cord may only be replaced by a person authorized by the manufacturer.

24

MOVING AND TRANSPORT AFTER INSTALLATION

After every drying cycle, a small amount of condensed water will remain in the dryer. Switch on the dryer and choose one of the programmes, then let the appliance operate for approximately half a minute. This will pump out the remaining water and prevent damage to the dryer during transport.

If the dryer cannot be transported in the upright position, tilt it to the left side.

After transport, the dryer should be left to stand still for at least two hours before it is connected to the power mains. The appliance should be installed and connected by a trained technician.

If the appliance was not transported in compliance with the instructions, the dryer should be left to stand still at least 24 hours before it is reconnected to the power mains. Failure to do so may result in a heat pump failure which shall not be covered by the warranty.

Be careful not to damage the cooling system (see chapter »INSTALLATION AND CONNECTION/ Dryer placement«).

Carefully read the instructions for use before connecting the dryer. Repair or any warranty claim resulting from incorrect connection or use of the dryer shall not be covered by the warranty.

The belt may only be replaced by a service technician authorized by the manufacturer, who can supply the original spare part with the code OPTIBELT EPH 1906, code 104265; OPTIBELT 8 EPH 1941, code 160165; POLY-V 7PH 1956 HUTCHINSON, code 562038; HUTCHINSON 8 PHE 1942, šifra 270313 (depending on the model). 25

BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE FOR THE FIRST TIME

STEP 2: PREPARING FOR THE LAUNDRY DRYING PROCESS

1. 2. 3. Sort the laundry by type and thickness of the fabric (see PROGRAMME TABLE).

Close the buttons and zips, tie any ribbons, and turn the pockets inside out.

Place very sensitive clothes in a special-purpose laundry bag.

(The special-purpose laundry bag is available as an optional accessory.)

Drying laundry made of particularly delicate fabrics that may be deformed is not recommended. The following types of laundry may not be dried in the dryer as this may cause your garments to deform: • • • • • leather garments and other leather products; garments that are waxed or treated in any other way; garments with major wooden, plastic, or metal parts; garments with spangles; garments with metal parts subject to rusting.

28

DRYING IN A BASKET

(DEPENDING ON THE MODEL)

Before the first drying cycle, remove the basket and all packaging from the drum.

Laundry may only be dried in the basket when using the timed drying programme. (The basket is available for purchase as an optional accessory at the service centre.)

1

Open the dryer door and insert the laundry.

2

Insert the drying basket by securing it to the door gasket (as shown in the figure).

3

The basket can be used for drying of sports shoes, slippers, or any other item you do not wish tumbled around the dryer drum during the drying process (max. load: 5,5 lb (2,5 kg)).

4

After the drying process, remove the drying basket and close the dryer door.

Only dry clean sports shoes or slippers that have been wrung just enough to prevent water from dripping from them. As the drum rotates, the laundry basket will be still. Therefore, make sure the items you are drying in the basket are not in contact with the drum, as this could result in damage to the item and the dryer.

MAINTENANCE & CLEANING

Before cleaning, make sure to switch off the dryer and disconnect it from the power mains (unplug the power cord from the outlet).

The dryer is fitted with a

filtering system

consisting of several filters that prevent any impurities from entering the heat exchanger system.

1

Net filter

2

Heat pump filter

3

Condensate tank

3 2 1

The dryer may never be operated without the filters in place or with damaged filters, as excessive amount of accumulated fibres from the fabric could cause malfunction or failure of the dryer.

43

CLEANING THE NET FILTER IN THE DOOR

Clean the net filter after each drying cycle.

1

Open the filter housing.

2

Pull out the net filter.

3

Gently scrape the filter to remove the lint, i.e. the lining of fibres and threads, with your hand or with a cloth.

4

If necessary, clean the filter housing and door gasket as well.

5

Insert the net filter and close the filter housing.

44 Make sure you do not pinch your fingers with the filter cover.

CLEANING THE HEAT PUMP FILTER

During cleaning, some water may be spilled. It is therefore recommended to place an absorbent cloth on the floor.

1

Open the outer cover. Hold the levers on the inside cover and rotate them upwards. Remove the inside cover.

2

Use the handle to pull out the heat pump filter.

3

Push the foam part of the filter from the housing. Use a damp cloth to clean the heat pump filter housing.

4

Wash the foam filter under running water and dry it before replacing it in the filter housing.

Insert the heat pump foam filter into the housing and close the outer cover (push it upwards toward the machine until it latches into place).

The heat pump filter has to be correctly inserted into its slot. Otherwise, the heat exchanger installed inside the dryer may be clogged or damaged.

Clean the foam filter at least after every five drying cycles. 45

CLEANING OF THE HEAT EXCHANGER

Do not touch the inner metal parts of the heat exchanger with bare hands. Danger of injury on sharp parts. Use appropriate protection gloves when cleaning the heat exchanger.

Incorrect cleaning of the metal fins of the heat exchanger can permanently damage the tumble dryer. Do not press on the metal fins with hard objects like for example the plastic tube of a vacuum cleaner.

The dust and dirt in the metal fins of the heat exchanger can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner and a soft brush attachment.

Access to the heat exchanger is possible, when the heat pump filter is removed as is described in the chapter »cleaning of heat pump filter«.

Without pressing, gently move the brush attachment only in the direction of the metal fins from top to bottom. Too much pressure can damage or bend the metal fins of the heat exchanger.

We recommend you clean the heat exchanger at least every twelve months.

46

EMPTYING THE CONDENSATE TANK

Empty the condensate tank after each drying cycle.

If the condensate tank is full, the drying programme will be paused automatically.

Symbol (7) will light up on the display unit, indicating that the condensate tank should be emptied.

1

Pull out the condensate tank from the dryer (using both hands as shown in the figure), then turn it upside down over a washbasin, sink, or any suitable vessel.

2,3

Empty the condensate tank. Pull out the spout at the opening for easier emptying.

Replace the condensate tank.

Water from the condensate tank is not potable. If thoroughly filtered, it can be used for ironing.

Never add chemicals or fragrances into the condensate tank.

It is not necessary to empty the condensate tank if the drain hose is connected directly to a drain (see chapter »INSTALLATION AND CONNECTION/Draining the condensate«).

47

CLEANING THE DRYER

Always disconnect the dryer from the power mains before cleaning.

Clean the dryer exterior using a soft damp cotton cloth.

Do not use any solvents or cleaning agents that could damage the dryer (please observe the recommendations and warnings provided by the manufacturers of the cleaning agents).

Wipe all parts of the dryer with a soft cloth until dry.

Do not clean the dryer with a jet of water!

48

TIPS FOR DRYING AND ECONOMIC USE YOUR DRYER

The most economical way of drying is to dry the recommended amount of laundry in each batch (see PROGRAMME TABLE).

Drying laundry made of particularly delicate fabrics that may be deformed is not recommended.

Use of conditioner in the washing cycle is not necessary as the laundry is soft and smooth after drying in the dryer. Drying time will be shorter and power consumption will be lower if the garments are thoroughly wrung or spun before drying. By selecting the appropriate drying programme, you will avoid over-drying your laundry and problems with ironing or shrinkage of fabric.

Regular cleaning of the filters will lead to optimum drying time and minimum power consumption.

When drying smaller amounts of laundry or individual garments, the sensor may not perceive the actual level of moisture in the laundry. In such cases, it is recommended to dry smaller items or amounts with programmes for dryer laundry or with the timed programme.

54
