DRYING

SETTING THE DRYING PROGRAMME

Independent Drying only Programme:

1. Remove the wet laundry and in the drum the dosing ball (if used) until the correct drying weight load is left in the drum.

2. Close the door until it clicks shut.

3. Turn the programme selector dial to Drying Programmes 11, 12 or 13.

4. Select Auto or time dry as required, by pressing the button advancing through the settings available.

5. When all selections have been made press the Start/Cancel button. A bleep will be heard followed by a 'CLUNK' from the door lock solenoid and the door will lock.

6. When the programme has finished the DOOR LOCKED indicator light will go out and a CLUNK will be heard as the door lock solenoid disengages. The door can now be opened.

Drying Options

You can select the length of drying time suitable for the load.

NOTE: The machine display shows hours, the selector knob indicates in minutes.

CONTROLS INFORMATION

A single control board located at the back of the machine contains all the circuitry to control the machine and interfaces with the programme selector, option buttons and LEDs located on the console panel. The control board has an access port to the rear of the machine.

Programmes are selected by turning the rotary switch to one of the 16 positions. Special options can be selected by pressing the appropriate buttons and the programme process followed by LEDs.

The machine is switched on using the On/Off button and selected programmes started by pressing the

Start/Cancel button.

Automatic Features

Auto Half Load

Auto half load adjusts the amount of water in the wash load depending on the absorbency of garments in the wash load.

Fabric Conditioner Dispensing

Dispensing of fabric conditioner is achieved by energising both the Pre-Wash and Main Wash cold valves.

Out of Balance Protection

The machine has an inbuilt feature to prevent spinning with an unbalanced load. A calculation via the motor tacho and control board detects the current drawn by the motor during distribution.

Before each spin, the controls senses the load within the drum and if the load is calculated to be out of balance the machine will not automatically spin to the full speed.

There are two levels of out of balance, level 1 @ 480 grammes and level 2 @ 1030 grammes.

If the out of balance is below level 1 the machine will spin at full speed, if between level 1 and level 2 the machine will spin at the reduced speed of 600 rpm and above level 2 spin at reduced speed of 400 rpm. There are 15 attempts at level 1 with 57 attempts in total, this being the same for both cotton and synthetic spins.

The wool spin has one level of out of balance @ 1.8 kg. The controls will make three attempts to achieve a balance, if after three attempts a balance is not achieved; the spin is reduced to a speed of

90 rpm.

THE CONDENSER TUMBLE DRYING PROCESS

The drying process is by means of a closed air system driven by a circulating fan. Air is drawn internally from the rear of the outer drum, passed over a heating element and returned to the front of the drum via an inlet through the door seal. The warm air travels through the wash load collecting moisture, the moist air then condenses on a stream of cold water running down the inner rear section of the outer drum. The relatively dry air is then drawn back over the element to repeat the process.

The circulating fan, one shot cut-out or thermal fuse cable along with a thermistor to control the air temperature are located in a heater box assembly attached to the top of the outer drum.

The airflow passes through a filter located within the air duct from the outer drum to the heater box assembly. At the start of every drying program the filter is automatically cleaned by flushing water through it by means of a fill valve wired in parallel with the hot fill valve for 5 seconds duration.

Flushing Valve Operation

During Rinse phase: 2 xs for 15 seconds

Drying Phase: 1 x before drying phase for 4 seconds

End cycle: After drying phase, during cool down phase

Valve Off for 118 seconds

Valve On for 2 seconds

Beginning of Drying Cycle

Wash valve: On for 1 second to put water into dispenser hose

Flushing valve: On for 4 seconds

Drain pump: On for 20 seconds

During Drying Cycle

Drain pump: On for 9 seconds and off for 21 seconds

Wash valve: On for 2 seconds and off for 510 seconds to put water into dispenser hose

Condenser valve: On continuously after thermo spin

The water supply for the condenser is by means of a direct feed from a cold inlet valve to the rear of the outer drum and is pumped out approximately every 30 seconds.

The closed air system is sealed by a 'P' trap located within the dispenser inlet hose.

The hose is topped up with cold water every 8 minutes for a duration of 1 second.

There are two heat settings, high and low heat. The default setting is low heat, High Heat is selected by means of a push button on the console. The drying time is selected by means of a rotary switch also located on the console. The drying times are followed by a 20 minute cool tumble.

Thermal Spin

A thermal spin on the High Heat setting is carried at the start of the of the drying process. The load is pre-heated to approximately 50°C by the dryer heater with normal tumble action and pump out. The thermistor located in the wash heater will sense the load temperature and when 50°C is achieved a 5 minute Spin profile will be carried out at full spin speed.

During thermal spin the out of Balance detection will operate and maximum speed will only be achieved depending on the out of balance condition.

On completion of the Thermal Spin, the tumble drying process will commence for the period of time selected.

Thermal spin is NOT available when low heat is selected.
