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 7kg of laundry, dried using the
COTTONS STORAGE DRY programme.

Before the first drying cycle
In order to remove any residue which may have been produced during
production, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth or undertake a
brief drying cycle (20 MIN) with damp cloths.
Sorting and preparing laundry
Sorting laundry
• Sort by fabric type:
• Sort by fabric type:
– Cotton/linen for programmes in COTTONS programme
group.
– Mixtures and synthetics for programmes in EASY CARES programme
group.
• Sorting by care label. The care labels mean:
Basic drying in Drying at
tumble dryer
normal
possible
temperature
Drying at reduced temperature
(press SPECIAL CARE button!)
Drying in tumble
dryer not possible
• Do not dry new, coloured textiles together with light-coloured laundry
items. Textile colours may bleed.
• Do not dry tricot or knitted items with the EXTRA DRY programme. Items
may become stuck!
• Do not dry wool in the dryer. May become entangled! After air-drying,
wool may be dried with the WOOL CARE programme.
Preparing laundry
• To avoid laundry becoming tangled: Close zips, button up coverings and
tie loose bands or ribbons (e.g. of aprons).
• Empty pockets. Remove metallic items (paperclips, 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.

• Always load well spun laundry. The higher the spin speed the lower
the electricity consumption and the shorter the drying time.
• DO NOT load dripping wet laundry into the dryer. Roll the article in
a towel or spin to remove excess water.
• Close poppers and zips and fasten any buttons.
• Sort the laundry. Separate synthetics from cotton/linens, and dry
separately.
• Remove the laundry immediately after the programme has finished.
• Use a fabric conditioning sheet to reduce static. We recommend the
sheet is pinned to an article of laundry (using a safety pin).
• Mix the load i.e. large and small articles.
• When drying large items such as sheets, we recommend you periodically stop the dryer to redistribute the load.
DO NOT use the tumble dryer to dry the following:
• Articles contaminated with inflammable substances e.g. petrol, cleaning solvents, cooking oil, fats or hair lacquer.
• Woollen and synthetic/wool mixtures unless the item is labelled as
suitable for tumble drying.
• Very delicate articles such as silk.
• Very large and bulky items such as duvets or sleeping bags.

Emptying the water reservoir
Empty condensate tank after every drying cycle.
If the condensate tank is full, an active programme will break off automatically and the EMPTY WATER 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).

Cleaning heat exchanger
If the HEAT EXCHANGER display is illuminated, the heat exchanger needs to
be cleaned.
Caution! Operating when the heat exchanger is clogged with lint can damage the dryer. This also increases energy consumption.
1. Open loading door
2. Open base door. To do this, press the
release button on the bottom of the
loading opening and open the door to
the left.
3. Remove lint from the inside of the door
and the heat exchange chamber. Wipe
the door seal with a damp cloth.
4. Turn both lock washers inwards.
5. Use the handle to pull the heat exchanger
out of the base and carry it horizontally to
prevent any remaining water from spilling.
6. To empty the heat exchanger, hold
vertically over a washing-up bowl.
Caution! Do not use sharp objects to
clean. The heat exchanger could
develop leaks.
7. Clean heat exchanger.
It is best to use a brush or to rinse
thoroughly with a shower head.
8. Replace heat exchanger and lock into
place (turn both lock washers
outwards until they snap into place).
9. Close base door.
The dryer will not operate if the HEAT EXCHANGER indicator is still lit.
Caution! Never operate the dryer without the heat exchanger.

Cleaning the drum
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
Caution! Do not use furniture cleaners or aggressive cleaning agents to
clean the machine.
Use a damp cloth to wipe down the operating screen and housing.
