2 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;
– ensure you have good ventilation in the installation room;
– clean the micro-fine filter and fine strainer after each drying cycle;
– spin the laundry well before drying. Example: Consumption data –
depending on spinning speed – for 6kg of laundry, dried using the
COTTONS STORAGE DRY (KATOEN KASTDROOG) programme.

Before the first drying cycle
1
If the appliance was not transported in an upright position, leave it to
stand for 12 hours before connecting it to the electricity supply and using it for the first time, so that the oil can flow back to the compressor.
Otherwise the compressor could be damaged.
1. In order to remove any residues which may have been produced during
production, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth or carry out a brief
drying cycle (30 MIN) with damp cloths in the machine.
Sorting and preparing laundry
Sorting laundry
• Sorting by fabric type:
– Cotton/linen for programmes in the COTTON (KATOEN) programme
group.
– Mixed fibres and synthetics for programmes in the EASY CARES
(MENGWEEFSELS) programme group.
• Sorting by care label. The care labels mean:

not possible
• Do not dry new, coloured textiles together with light-coloured laundry items. Textile colours may bleed.
• Do not dry cotton jersey and knitwear with the EXTRA DRY (EXTRADROOG) programme. Items may shrink!
• Wool and wool-like textiles can be dried using the WOOL (WOL) programme. Before the drying cycle spin the woollen textiles as well as
possible (max. 1200 rpm). Only dry woollen textiles together which
are similar or the same with repect to material, colour and weight.
Please dry heavy laundry items made of wool separately.
Preparing laundry
• To avoid laundry becoming tangled: close zips, button up duvet covers and tie loose ties or ribbons (e.g. of aprons).
• Empty pockets. Remove metal items (paper clips, safety pins, etc).
• Turn items with double-layered fabrics inside out (e.g. with cottonlined anoraks, the cotton layer should be outermost). These fabrics
will then dry better.

Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning fluff filter
1
To ensure that the dryer works perfectly, the fluff filters (micro-fine filter and fine strainer) must be cleaned after every drying cycle.
Caution! Never operate the dryer without fluff filters or with damaged
or blocked fluff filters.
1. Open loading door
2. Use a damp hand to clean the micro-fine filter, which is built into
the lower part of the loading aperture.
3. Push down unlock button on large
mesh filter.
Large mesh filter jumps up.
4. Take out fine strainer.
5. Remove fluff from fine strainer. It
is best to use a damp hand for this
purpose.
17
3
Clean the entire filter area
The strainer area does not have to be cleaned after every drying cycle,
but should be checked regularly and cleaned of fluff if necessary.
6. To do this, grip the top of the large
mesh filter and pull it forwards until it comes loose from the two
brackets.
7. Remove fluff from the entire filter
area. It is best to use a vacuum
cleaner for this purpose.
8. Press both journals of the large
mesh filter into the brackets on the
loading door until they snap into
place.
9. Re-insert fine strainer.
10. Press against the large mesh filter
until it locks into the interlock.
3
If the fine strainer is not fitted, the
large mesh filter will not snap into
place and the loading door cannot
be closed.
Cleaning the door seal
Wipe the door seal with a damp cloth immediately after the drying cycle has finished.
18
Emptying the condensate tank
1
Empty condensate tank after every drying cycle.
If the condensate tank is full, an active programme will break off automatically and the EMPTY WATER (RESERVOIR) display will light up. In
order to continue the programme, the condensate tank must first be
emptied.
Warning! The condensate is not suitable for drinking or for preparing
foodstuffs.
1. Take out drawer containing condensed water container
completely (1) and pull up the condensed water container’s drainage
pipe as far as it will go (2).
3
3
2. Pour condensed water out into a
basin or similar receptacle.
3. Slide outlet connections in and refit condensate tank.
If the programme has been interrupted as a result of the condensate tank being full:
Press the START/PAUSE (START/
PAUZE) button to continue the
drying cycle.
The condensate tank has a volume of approx. 4 litres. This is sufficient
for around 6kg of laundry which has previously been spun at 800 revolutions/minute.
The condensate can be used as distilled water, e.g. for steam ironing.
However first filter the condensate (e.g. with a coffee filter) to remove
any residue and small pieces of fluff.
19
Cleaning the fluff filter
If the indicator CLEAN BASE FILTER (REINIG SOKKELFILTER) lights up,
the fluff filter and the filter mat in the base of the appliance must be
cleaned.
3
1
To protect the heat pump from dirt, the dryer is fitted with a special filter mat, which is located in the filter housing. Here too large amounts
of fluff build up over time, which affect the function of the appliance.
Important
• Operating when the fluff filter is clogged with fluff can damage the
dryer. This also increases energy consumption.
• Never operate the dryer without the fluff filters.
• Do not use the dryer without the filter mat. A dirty heat pump requires more energy and can only be cleaned up by means of a costly
process.
1. Open door.
2. Open door in plinth: To do this,
press the release button on the
bottom of the door aperture and
open the door in the plinth to the
left.
3. Pull filter housing out of the base
by the handle.
4. Clean the inside of the door, the
fluff filter chamber and the rubber
seals of fluff.
5. Remove fluff from the fluff filter
on the floor of the base with a
damp hand.
20
6. To clean the filter mat:
Remove filter mat from filter housing. To do this, press the pressure
points on the sides and pull the filter mat and frame up and out of
the housing.
7. Take the filter mat out of the frame
and wash it by hand or use a vacuum cleaner, when it is has dried
out. Fluff, which has become stuck
in the filter mat and has not been
removed by washing, does not affect the function.
8. Insert the filter mat in the frame
and then insert with the frame into
the filter housing.
1
Important: The filter mat must engage tightly with the frame. Check

Caution! Do not use abrasives or steel wool to clean the drum.
Lime in the water or cleaning agents may form a barely visible lining on
the inside of the drum. The degree to which the laundry has been dried
is then no longer detected reliably. The laundry is damper than expected when removed from the dryer.
Use a standard domestic cleaner (e.g. vinegar-based cleaner) to wipe
down the inside of the drum and drum ribs.
Clean operating screen and housing
1
Caution! Do not use furniture cleaners or aggressive cleaning agents to
clean the machine.

Guarantee conditions
Belgium
DECLARATION OF GUARANTEE TERMS.
Our appliances are produced with the greatest of care. However, a defect may still occur. Our consumer services department will repair this upon request, either during or after the guarantee period. The service life of the appliance will not, however, be reduced as a result.
This declaration of guarantee terms is based on European Union Directive 99/44/EC and the provisions of the Civil Code. The statutory rights that the consumer has under this legislation are not
affected by this declaration of guarantee terms.
This declaration does not affect the vendor's statutory warranty to the end user. The appliance is
guaranteed within the context of and in adherence with the following terms:
1. In accordance with provisions laid down in paragraphs 2 to 15, we will remedy free of charge any
defect that occurs within 24 months from the date the appliance is delivered to the first end user.
These guarantee terms do not apply in the event of use for professional or equivalent purposes.
2. Performing the guarantee means that the appliance is returned to the condition it was in before
the defect occurred. Defective parts are replaced or repaired. Parts replaced free of charge become
our property.
3. So as to avoid more severe damage, the defect must be brought to our attention immediately.
4. Applying the guarantee is subject to the consumer providing proof of purchase showing the purchase and/or delivery date.
5. The guarantee will not apply if damage caused to delicate parts, such as glass (vitreous ceramic),
synthetic materials and rubber, is the result of inappropriate use.
6. The guarantee cannot be called on for minor faults that do not affect the value or the overall reliability of the appliance.
7. The statutory warranty does not apply when defects are caused by:
• a chemical or electrochemical reaction caused by water,
• abnormal environmental conditions in general,
• unsuitable operating conditions,
• contact with harsh substances.
8. The guarantee does not apply to defects due to transport which have occurred outside of our responsibility. Nor will the guarantee cover those caused by inadequate installation or assembly, lack
of maintenance or failure to respect the assembly instructions or directions for use.
9. Defects that result from repairs or measures carried out by people who are not qualified or expert
or defects that result from the addition of non-original accessories or spare parts are not covered
by the guarantee.
10. Appliances that are easy to transport may be delivered or sent to the consumer services department. Home repairs are only anticipated for bulky appliances or built-in appliances.
11. If the appliances are built-in, built-under, fixed or suspended in such a way that removing and replacing them in the place where they are fitted takes more than half an hour, the costs that result
therefrom will be charged for. Connected damage caused by these removal and replacement operations will be the responsibility of the user.
12. If, during the guarantee period, repairing the same defect repeatedly is not conclusive, or if the repair costs are considered disproportionate, in agreement with the consumer, the defective appliance may be replaced with another appliance of the same value.
In this event, we reserve the right to ask for a financial contribution calculated according to the
length of time it has been used.
13. A repair under guarantee does not mean that the normal guarantee period will be extended nor
that a new guarantee period begins.
14. We give a twelve month guarantee for repairs, limited to the same defect.
15. Except in the event where liability is legally imposed, this declaration of guarantee terms excludes
any compensation for damage outside the appliance for which the consumer wishes to assert his
rights. In the event of legally admitted liability, compensation will not exceed the purchase price
paid for the appliance.
These guarantee terms are only valid for appliances purchased and used in Belgium. For exported
appliances, the user must first make sure that they satisfy the technical conditions (e.g.: voltage,
frequency, installation instructions, type of gas, etc.) for the country concerned and that they can
33
withstand the local climatic and environmental conditions. For appliances purchased abroad, the
user must first ensure that they meet the qualifications required in Belgium. Non-essential or requested adjustments are not covered by the guarantee and are not possible in all cases.
Our consumer services department is always at your disposal, even after the guarantee period has
expired.
