Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning the filter area
1
Important! When the CLEAN FILTER display lights, it is essential to
clean the fluff filter. Otherwise your dryer might suffer damage.
A small amount of fluff may reach the area around the filter in spite of
the fluff filter. Therefore you should clean the entire filter area from
time to time, or at least every three months.
0 Remove the fluff filter.
0 Hold the filter lid by the top and pull it forwards until it is released from both holders.
0 Remove the fluff from the entire filter area
– preferably with a vacuum cleaner.
0 Press both pins of the filter lid into the holders on the door until they click in.
0 Reinsert the fluff filter.
0 Press against the filter lid until it clicks into
the lock.
Cleaning the drum
1 Warning! Do not clean the stainless steel drum with abrasive deter-
gents or steel wool!
Fabric softeners or lime in the water can cause a scarcely visible deposit
to form on the drum. The dryer is then no longer reliably able to
recognise how dry the washing is. When the washing is removed from
the dryer it will be damper than you expect.
0 Wipe the inside of the drum and the drum fins with white vinegar to
avoid any residues/deposits effecting the sensors. This is particularly
important if you regulary use fabric conditioning sheets or dry starched
items in the dryer.
23
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning the panel and operating parts
1 Warning! Do not use household furniture polish or aggressive detergents.
0 Wipe over the panel and operating parts with a damp cloth.
Only use warm water.
Cleaning the door seal
0 Rub the door seal with a damp cloth immediately after the drying procedure.
Cleaning the heat exchanger
1
24
Important! When the HEAT EXCHANGER display lights, it is essential to
clean the heat exchanger. Otherwise your dryer might suffer damage.
In addition energy consumption will be increased if the heat exchanger
unit is covered with fluff.
See the section "Drying, cleaning the heat exchanger".
