When the machine is working, children should be carefully supervised and not be allowed to play with the appliance. • The packaging components (e.g. plastic film, polystyrene) can be dangerous to children - danger of suffocation! Keep them out of children’s reach. • Make sure that children or pets do not climb into the drum. Disposal • Packaging materials The materials marked with the symbol recyclable. • Machine are Use authorised disposal sites for your old appliance. Help to keep your country tidy! This means that they can be recycled by disposing of them properly in appropriate collection containers. Tips for environmental protection To save energy and to help protect the environment, we recommend that you follow these hints: • To utilize the maximum load, laundry which is to be dried ready to put away (store dry) can be dried together with items to be ironed. To do this, select the programme for iron-dry, remove the iron-dry items at the end of the programme and then finishdry the rest of the load. • Try to load the maximum capacity of the machine as small loads are uneconomical. • Always load well spun laundry. The higher the spin speed, the lower the electricity consumption and the shorter the drying times. • Clean the filter and condenser unit regularly to avoid excessive drying times and high electricity consumption. • Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids creasing and saves energy. Select the drying programme according to the type of laundry and the required degree of dryness. • Ventilate the room well. The room temperature should not exceed +35°C during drying. 5 ENGLISH 125994260•TCS603LT•gb 125994260•TCS603LT•gb 12-12-2000 8:38 Pagina 6 Your new tumble dryer This tumble dryer will give your wash that soft, relaxed feel whatever the weather.

The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean place, where dirt does not build up. A special stacking kit is available through your dealer, to enable the mounting of the dryer on top of your washing machine. Air must be able to circulate freely all round the appliance. Do not obstruct the front ventilation grille or the air intake grilles at the back of the machine. To keep vibration and noise to a minimum when the dryer is in use, it should be placed on a firm, level surface. Once in its permanent operating position, check that the dryer is absolutely level with the aid of a spirit level. If it is not, raise or lower the feet until it is. P1044 Connecting a drain hose If there is a sink or drain near the appliance, the condensed water can be discharged directly through a hose that is available on the market. The feet must never be removed. Do not restrict the floor clearance through deeppile carpets, strips of wood or similar. This might cause heat build-up which would interfere with the operation of the appliance. In order to connect the hose to the appliance proceed as follows: Important • Remove the clamp (A); The hot air emitted by the tumble dryer can reach temperatures of up to 60°C. The appliance must therefore not be installed on floors which are not resistant to high temperatures. • Pull out the plug (B); • Insert the drain hose (C); • Fasten the hose (C) to the appliance using the clamp (A). When operating the tumble dryer, the room temperature must not exceed 35°C, as it may affect the performance of the appliance. C A Electrical connection This machine is designed to operate on a 220-230 V, single-phase, 50 Hz supply. B A B Check that your domestic electrical installation can take the maximum load required (2.2 kW), also taking into account any other appliances in use. P1043 C P1046 If the appliance is stacked on the washing machine, the condensed water can be discharged through the hose as shown in figure, but take into account that the hose must be pointed downwards. Connect the machine to an earthed socket, in accordance with current wiring regulations. The manufacturer declines any responsibility for damage or injury through failure to comply with the above safety precaution. 7 ENGLISH Installation 125994260•TCS603LT•gb 12-12-2000 8:38 Pagina 8 Use The control panel 800 / 900 kg 5 kg 2,5 800 / 900 1000 / 1200 85' -105' 75' - 100' 45' - 60' 40' - 55' 1000 / 1200 110' - 130' 100' - 125' 60' - 75' 55' - 70' 650 kg 2.5 65' - 75' kg 1 30' - 40' 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 Programme Chart 6 Drying Time Selector Dial The programme chart provides a summary of all the programmes available and the corresponding drying times. The selector dial incorporates two drying cycles, one of up to 150 minutes at a high temperature for cotton and linen, and one of up to 100 minutes at a low temperature for synthetic fabrics. 2 Door opening and programme interruption button To set the machine to the selected time, turn the dial clockwise until the time you want coincides exactly with the pointer. To open door, press this button: the programme in progress is interrupted. NEVER attempt to turn the dial in an anticlockwise direction. The drying time depends on: 3 Low Temperature button - the speed of the last spin Press this button to reduce the temperature when drying particularly delicate cotton or linen items. - the desired degree of drying 4 Start button - the size of the load. - the type of laundry After selecting the drying time, press start button: the appliance will start drying. If the door is opened during drying, the programme is interrupted. It will be resumed by pressing the button again. Cooling phase When selecting the drying time, it should be remembered that it includes a 10 minute cooling phase. The heating is automatically cut off and the laundry is cooled. 5 “Water container full” light The position on the dial can be selected to refresh jumpers, clothes, etc. This light lights up when the water container is full or when it has been inserted incorrectly. 7 Mains-On Light This lights up when the machine starts operating and goes out at the end of the programme or by opening the door. 8 125994260•TCS603LT•gb 12-12-2000 8:38 Pagina 9 ENGLISH Drying Times Cotton and Linen Selector dial: up to 150 minutes Degree of drying required Degree of spin given rpm Quantity kg Drying times mins 5 85 - 105 2.5 45 - 60 5 75 - 100 800/900 Iron dry 1000/1200 2.5 5 40 - 55 110 - 130 2.5 60 - 75 800/900 Store dry 5 100 - 125 1000/1200 2.5 55 - 70 Synthetics Selector dial: up to 100 minutes Degree of drying required Degree of spin given rpm Store dry 650 Iron dry Quantity kg Drying times mins 2.5 65-75 1 30-40 2.5 45-55 1 25-35 650 The laundry must be suitably spun in your washing machine before being placed in the tumble dryer (800 rpm minimum). If the washing machine spins at a lower speed than 800 rpm, it is advisable to buy a spin-dryer. Drying times are given as a guide only and vary according to the size of the load, the type of laundry, the degree of spinning prior to drying. Start by selecting a short drying time. If necessary, perform an additional drying cycle afterwards. Experience will soon enable you to estimate the drying time needed for your usual laundry loads. It is advisable to take note of them. Size of load It is not necessary to weigh the laundry, if these instructions are followed: ■ Cottons, linen: full drum, but not overloaded. ■ Synthetics: half drum. ■ Particularly delicate fabrics: do not fill the drum more than 1/3. For a mixed load (cotton and synthetics, for example) select the drying time suitable for the most delicate fabrics and then increase it by approx 10 mins. 9 125994260•TCS603LT•gb 12-12-2000 8:38 Pagina 10 Operating sequence Before using your tumble dryer for the first time, we recommend to place a few damp cloths inside the appliance and dry for about 20 minutes. There may be dust inside a brand new tumble dryer. 1. Connect the appliance. 2. Open the door by pressing the relevant button. 3. Load the items one at a time, shaking them out loosely. 4. Close the door. Please check the laundry does not get caught between the door and filter. 5. Select the desired drying time (in high or low temperature section, depending on the laundry). 6. In case, press button 7. Press button . : the programme starts. When the position on the dial is reached, the heating is automatically cut off and the laundry is cooled. After around 10 minutes, the programme is over. Important: It is not advisable to open the door during operation to check the degree of dryness. As the laundry is warm, when touched it gives the impression of still being damp, even if it is dry. Open the door after the programme has finished. If the programme has to be interrupted, it is advisable to perform the cooling phase to prevent the heat from building up inside the machine. After drying ■ Switch off the appliance. ■ Clean the filter and empty water container (see page 12). 10 12-12-2000 8:38 Pagina 11 • Easy-care items, too, e.g. shirts, should be briefly pre-spun before drying (depending on crease resistance approx. 30 seconds or using the special brief spin programme of your washing machine). Useful hints • Try to load to the maximum capacity of the machine as small loads are uneconomical. For information, here is a list of the average weights of some common laundry items. Sheet 700 - 1000 g Tablecloth • You can also put starched items into your dryer. However, to achieve the desired starched effect, choose the programme “iron dry”. To remove any starch residues, wipe out the internal drum after drying with a moist cloth and then rub it dry. 400 - 500 g Kitchen towel 70 - 120 g Table napkin 50 - 100 g Towelling hand towel Bathrobe • Knitted textiles (knitted underwear) may shrink a little during drying. Please do not overdry items of this type. It is advisable to allow for shrinkage when choosing the size of new purchases. • To avoid a static charge when drying is completed, use either a fabric softener when you are washing the laundry or a fabric conditioner specifically for tumble dryers. 150 - 250 g 1000 - 1500 g Man’s shirt 200 - 300 g Pillowcase 100 - 200 g Man’s pyjamas 400 - 500 g Ladies’ nightdress 200 - 250 g • Remove the laundry when the dryer has finished drying. • If individual items are still damp after drying, set a brief post-drying time, but at least 20 minutes. This will be necessary particularly for multilayered items (e.g. collars, pockets, etc.). • Never tumble dry the following: Particularly delicate items such as net curtains, woollen, silk, fabrics with metal trim, nylon tights, bulky materials such as anoraks, blankets, eiderdowns, sleeping bags, feather quilts and any items containing rubber foam or materials similar to rubber foam. • Always follow the instructions on garment labels: normal drying (high temperature) delicate drying (low temperature) do not tumble dry • Close pillowcases and covers with fasteners to prevent small laundry items getting tangled inside them. Close press studs, zips and hooks and tie belts and apron strings. • Sort laundry according to type and degree of drying required. • Do not over-dry laundry, this avoids creasing and saves energy. • Avoid drying dark clothes with light coloured fluffy items such as towels as they could attract the fluff. • The laundry must be thoroughly spun before tumble drying. 11 ENGLISH 125994260•TCS603LT•gb 125994260•TCS603LT•gb 12-12-2000 8:38 Pagina 12 Maintenance and Cleaning You must disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply, before you can carry out any cleaning or maintenance work. Also clean the outside, removing all fluff. Clean the rubber seal round the porthole door and the seal of the condenser in the inner door with a damp cloth. External cleaning Important! Do not use pointed objects or utensils to clean the spaces between the plates, as this could damage the condenser and make it permeable. Use only soap and water and then dry thoroughly. From time to time, apply a little wax furniture cream with a soft cloth. Important: do not use methylated spirit, diluents or similar products. Do not use this appliance if the condenser has not been fitted. Cleaning the filter Emptying the water reservoir The tumble dryer cannot operate efficiently with a clogged filter. The filter collects all the fluff which forms during drying and it is therefore essential to remove and clean this filter after each drying programme using a damp cloth. Pull the filter upwards in order to remove it. Water extracted from the laundry condenses inside the machine and is collected in a reservoir. The reservoir must be emptied after each drying cycle to ensure efficient operation when the machine is next used. Important: should the reservoir be filled during a drying programme, the light will light up on the panel to indicate that the reservoir has to be emptied. The time selector dial rotates to position “O”, but the drying cycle is not completed. In this case, after emptying out the reservoir, the remaining drying time has to be selected again. Insert reservoir correctly. P1026 Attention: After this procedure, before the dryer resumes the operation, for a few seconds it could remain still and the “water reservoir full” light could remain on. Important: Remove the fluff around the filter too. Do not use the appliance without filter. You should not be alarmed by the amount of fluff which collects on the filter; this is due to normal wearing of the fabrics dried and not to incorrect operation of your machine. Rubbing of the fibres during normal wear and washing forms fluff. If laundry is dried on a line, this fluff simply flies away, whereas inside the tumble dryer it collects together and swells considerably as a result of the drying action. Water reservoir Cleaning the condenser unit Handy tip: The condensed water may be used in a steam iron or to top up a battery, etc. In this case it must be filtered (e.g. through a coffee filter). Clean the air condenser periodically, 3 or 4 times a year depending on how frequently the dryer is used. Pull out the condenser, holding it at the top, and remove all fluff. Clean it with a brush and rinse it under the shower if necessary.
