Sorting and preparing laundry
Sorting laundry
• Sort by fabric type:
– Cotton/linen for programmes in COTTONS programme group.
– Mixtures and synthetics for programmes in SYNTHETICS programme group.
• Sort by care label: The care labels mean:
• Turn items with double-layered fabrics inside out (e.g.
with cotton-lined anoraks, the cotton layer should be
outermost). These fabrics will then dry better.
Important! Do not overload the appliance. Observe max.

The drying cycles are automatically followed by an
anti-crease phase which lasts around 30 minutes.
The drum rotates at intervals during this phase. This keeps
the laundry loose and free of creases. The laundry can be
removed at any time during the anti-crease phase. (The
laundry should be taken out towards the end of the anticrease phase at the latest to prevent creases from forming.)

Appliance positioning
• It is recommended that, for your convenience, the machine is positioned close to your washing machine.
• The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean place,
where dirt does not build up.
• 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
• 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.
• The feet must never be removed. Do not restrict the
floor clearance through deeppile carpets, strips of
wood or similar. This might cause heat built-up which
would interfere with the operation of the appliance.
Important! 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.
When operating the tumble dryer, the room temperature
must not be lower than +5°C and higher than +35°C, as
it may affect the performance of the appliance.
Warning! Should the appliance be moved, it must
be transported vertically.
Warning! The appliance must not be installed
behind the lockable door, a sliding door or a door
with a hinge on the opposite side to that of the appliance.
Removing transport safety packaging
Caution! Before use all parts of the transport
packaging must be removed.
1. Open loading door.
3. Remove foil hose and

top of drum.
Fitting the vent hose
To simplify the installation, there is a choice of vent outlets: one at the back, the others in the left and right-hand
side. Connect the hose to whichever is the more convenient by pulling the ring nut (A) from the vent outlet at the
back, screwing it on to the hose and pushing it firmly back
into place. The unused vents should now be sealed with
the special snap covers provided.
If the hose is long and the
room temperature low, the
moisture might condense to
water inside the hose. This
is an unavoidable natural
phenomenon. To prevent
this water from Iying in the
hose or flowing back into the
tumble dryer, it is advisable
to drill a small hole (via. 3 mm) in the lowest point of the
hose and to place a small container below it. (See picture,
point B).
Once connected to the dryer, run the vent hose to the
desired outlet point, ensuring that the run’s overall length
is less than 2 m, and that it contains no more than two
bends. As to the outlet itself, if you have decided on a
fixed wall/window grille, a good local builder’s merchant
should be able to supply you with the necessary fittings
and installation advice.
It is important not to connect
the vent hose to, for
example, a cooker hood, or
a chimney or flue pipe
designed to carry the
exhaust from a fuel burning
Note that to avoid condensation problems, it is essential that the dryer be fitted with
the flexible hose to carry its “exhaust” at least beyond the
kitchen units; preferable outside the kitchen. In order to
prevent the appliance from overheating, it is important
that the steam exhaust is unobstructed. Therefore, in case
of a permanent hose fitted to an exterior wall or ceiling, it
must be ensured an exhaust capacity of at least 150 m3/
h. If the dryer is fitted next to kitchen units, make sure that
the vent hose is not squashed. If the hose is partially
squashed, drying efficiency will be reduced, resulting in
longer drying times and higher energy consumption. If
the hose is completely squashed, the safety cut-outs with
which the machine is fitted may operate. When operating
the tumble dryer, the room temperature must not be lower
than +5°C and higher than +35°C, as it may affect the
performance of the appliance.
Electrical connection
Details on mains voltage, type of current and the fuses
required should be taken from the rating plate. The rating
plate is fitted near the loading aperture (see “Product description” chapter).
Connect the machine to an earthed socket, in accordance
with current wiring regulations.
Warning! The manufacturer declines any
responsibility for damage or injury through failure
to comply with the above safety precautions.
Should the appliance power supply cable need to be
replaced, this must be carried out by our Service Centre.
The appliance is supplied with a 13 amp plug fitted. In the
event of having to change the fuse in the plug supplied,
a 13 amp ASTA approved BS 1363/A fuse must be used.
The wire coloured green and yellow must be connected
to the terminal marked with the letter «E» or by the earth
or coloured green and yellow.
The wire coloured blue must be connected to the terminal
«N» or coloured black.
The wire coloured brown must be connected to the terminal marked «L» or coloured red.
Upon completion there must be no cut, or stray strands
of wire present and the cord clamp must be secure over
the outer sheath.
Warning! A cut off plug inserted into a 13 amp
socket is a serious safety (shock) hazard.
Ensure that the cut off plug is disposed of safely.
Warning! The plug must be accessible after
installing the machine.
Permanent connection
In the case of permanent connection it is necessary that
you install a double pole switch between the appliance
and the electricity supply (mains), with a minimum gap
of 3 mm between the switch contacts and of a type suitable
for the required load in compliance with the current electrical regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green earth
cable at any point.
Door reversal
To make it easier to load or unload the laundry, the door
can be reversed. The door must only be reversed by an
authorised service engineer. Please contact your local
Service Force Centre. The engineer will carry out the door
reversal at your cost.
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
1 Blue - Neutral
2 cord clamp
3 Brown - Live
4 Green and Yellow - Earth
Special accessories
Stacking kit
A special stacking kit is
available through your dealer, to enable the mounting of
the dyer on top of a front

with cover’s depth between
48 and 60 cm. Read carefully
the instructions supplied
with the kit.
The symbol
on the product or on its packaging
indicates that this product may not be treated as
household waste. Instead it should be taken to the
appropriate collection point for the recycling of electrical
and electronic equipment. By ensuring this product is
disposed of correctly, you will help prevent potential
negative consequences for the environment and human
health, which could otherwise be caused by inappropriate
waste handling of this product. For more detailed
information about recycling of this product, please
contact your local council, your household waste disposal
service or the shop where you purchased the product.
Packaging material
The packaging materials are environmentally friendly and
can be recycled. The plastic components are identified by
markings, e.g. >PE<, >PS<, etc. Please dispose of the
packaging materials in the appropriate container at the
community waste disposal facilities.
Warning! When disposing of old appliances,
remove the mains cable and dispose of together with
the plug. Remove the door hook and ensure it is no longer
lockable to prevent young children being trapped inside.
Environmental tips
• In the dryer, laundry becomes fluffy and soft. Fabric
softeners are not therefore needed when washing.
• Your dryer will function most economically if you:
– always keep the ventilation slots on the base of the
dryer unobstructed;
– use the loading volumes specified in the programme overview;
– clean the filter after each drying cycle;
– spin the laundry well before drying. Example: Consumption data – depending on spinning speed –
for 7 kg of laundry, dried using the COTTONS CUPBOARD programme.
