Do not let children play with the appliance and keep pets away from it.

— Keep young children away from the appliance when it is operating.

— Keep the packaging materials out of children’s reach (e.g.: plastic bags, polystyrene, etc.) because they can be dangerous for children : risk of suffocation.

— This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they are supervised or instructed concerning use of the appliance by the person responsible for their safety.

Installation

— When you receive the appliance, unpack it or have it unpacked immediately. Check that it has not suffered any damage during transport. Express any reservations in writing on the delivery slip and keep a copy.

Never connect a damaged appliance.

If your appliance is damaged, please contact your dealer.

— Before connecting your appliance, please refer to the installation instructions.

— Your tumble dryer must be kept disconnected from the mains supply throughout the whole installation process.

— The electrical connection details shown on your appliance’s information plate must match those of the local mains supply.

— Once your appliance has been installed, the electrical plug must remain accessible.

— Do not alter or try to alter the appliance’s characteristics. This could be dangerous.

— If your installation requires alteration, only entrust the electrical and plumbing work to qualified electricians and plumbers.

— The appliance must not be installed behind a locking or sliding door, preventing the complete opening of the dryer.

— Your appliance is designed for normal domestic use. Do not use it for commercial or industrial purposes or for any purpose other than the one for which it has been designed

Use

Important :

Your tumble dryer is designed for domestic use only, for drying textiles suitable for tumble drying.

Important :

You must observe the following instructions. We decline any responsibility and rescind the guarantee if these recommendations are ignored : failure to observe them can result in material damage and physical injury.

— Use your appliance in accordance with its method of use, thereby avoiding injury to yourself and damage to your items. Do not use solvents in the appliance (risk of fire and explosion).

— Strictly comply with the care instructions on your laundry.

— If you have to open the door of the drum during the drying cycle, ensure that you do not touch the drum immediately, as it is very hot.

63

EN

1 / FOR THE USER’S ATTENTION

— Substances contained in soiling such as oil, acetone, alcohol, petrol, kerosene, stain removers, turpentine or wax must be removed before drying in your machine (by using an adapted warm water washing programme with additional detergent for example).

— Precautions for using stain-removing products : any preliminary treatment by solvent, stain-remover, aerosol, such as acetone, alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, térébentine is prohibited because these products are very inflammable. If your laundry requires this type of treatment, this must be done before washing. Similarly, we recommend that you do not use these products near to your dryer or, in general, near any electrical appliance in a poorly ventilated room in order to avoid any risk of an explosion.

— If any incidents occur, which you cannot resolve using the troubleshooting advice we provide (see

“TROUBLESHOOTING”), contact our Technical Service Center.

— Before disposing of your worn-out appliance, make it unusable. Unplug and cut off the power cable flush with the appliance and make the door lock inoperable.

— For your safety’s sake, if you wish to change your appliance’s power cable, contact a qualified electrician.

— If any operating anomalies occur, disconnect your appliance and call our Technical Service

Center.

• ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

The appliance’s packaging material is recyclable. Help recycle it and protect the environment by dropping it off in the municipal receptacles provided for this purpose.

Your appliance also contains a great amount of recyclable material. It is marked with this label to indicate that in countries that are a members of the European Union the used appliances should not be mixed with other waste. This way, the appliance recycling organised by your manufacturer will be done under the best possible conditions, in compliance with European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment.

Contact your town hall or your retailer for the used appliance collection points closest to your home.

We thank you for doing your part to protect the environment.

• ENERGY SAVINGS

— Spin your textiles at high speeds ; the residual dampness will be low, as will your energy consumption. Even synthetic textiles must be spun before drying.

— Place the maximum load in your machine ; this will optimize the energy used. When doing so, comply with the indications on volume provided in this instruction manual.

— The drying time and the energy consumption are both increased by a high ambient temperature and too small a room.

— Clean the filter after each drying cycle.

— Clean the condenser twice a month.

— Swich off your tumble dryer at the cycle ends.

3 / INSTALLING YOUR TUMBLE DRYER

• THE APPLIANCE’S SURROUNDINGS

Advice :

Your tumble dryer releases heat. If you place it next to another appliance or a unit, we advise you always to leave a space in-between to assist in air circulation (Fig. 02).

Important :

We strongly advise against :

— Installing your appliance on a carpeted floor.

If you cannot avoid this, take all possible measures not to obstruct the circulation of air at its base.

— Installing your dryer in a location where it can be subject to being splashed with water.

— Installing your dryer in a small closed room

(if this is the case, open the door or the window during drying).

— Installing your dryer in a poorly ventilated room. The temperature in the room must remain below 30°C during drying.

Fig. 02

• LEVELLING

Important :

Use a level to check that the appliance is horizontal :

Your dryer is fitted with 4 adjustable feet

(Fig.03). To adjust the stability and levelness :

— Tip it slightly backwards.

— Screw one or more of the feet in or out using a spanner or a screwdriver to adjust their height to suit the shape of the floor (Fig.03).

— Set your dryer back on its feet and check that it is stable.

EN 7 / TROUBLESHOOTING check.

Advice :

Some incidents may arise when you are using your dryer. Here are the points you should

Fault :

The dryer does not start :

The drying times are too long :

The laundry is too damp :

Check whether :

- the plug is in the socket

- the door is properly closed

- the condenser is correctly locked in place.

- the “Start” key was pressed (if the appliance was not in pause).

- the filter in the drum is clogged with fluff

- the laundry has been spun enough beforehand

(500rpm minimum, but spinning at 850rpm provides better drying times)

- The room temperature is not too high, particularly if the room is small : if necessary, open the door or window.

- the condenser is not clogged.

- the air inlets and outlets are unobstructed enough to ensure correct air circulation.

- the drying program selected matches the type of items in the drum.

- the filter in the drum is clogged with fluff

- the type of drying has been selected correctly (too low) : switch to the next programme up or increase the drying time.

- the condenser is not blocked by fluff.

The laundry is too dry, too creased :

- the drying program selected matches the type of items in the drum.

The items are unevenly dried : - the types of textiles in the load are too different (e.g.

sheets together with jeans)

- the laundry has been laid correctly ‘unfolded’ in the dryer

- the drum is not overloaded.

The synthetic items are loaded with static electricity :

- the laundry has been dried too much

- you have used softener during washing. By using this product, you can reduce most of the problems with static electricity.

The “Tank Full” indicator light is lit :

- the condensate container is full: once you have emptied it, re-insert it correctly, pushing it completely into its housing

The “Tank Full” indicator light illuminates although the tank is empty :

- the container has been properly inserted: push it in completely.

- the condenser is tightly locked on the two sides.
