Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation.
Disposing of your old
appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your machine.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
with your general waste.
Energy saving tips
Energy and water consumption
– Water consumption and energy
usage are determined by the size of
the load.
To make the most out of your
appliance, load the maximum
amount for the washing or drying
programme you are using.
Detergent
– Do not exceed the amounts of
detergent recommended by the
manufacturer on the packaging.
– Reduce the amount of detergent for
smaller loads.
To avoid unnecessarily long drying
times and high consumption of energy:
– Make sure that your laundry is
thoroughly spun before drying.
The higher the spin, the greater the
savings that can be made in energy
and time during drying.
– Make sure the room in which the
dryer is located is well ventilated.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
– Remove the fluff from the filter when
necessary (see "Cleaning and Care").
– Check all parts of the ventilation
system on a regular basis, and
remove any build-up of fluff etc.
The vent ducting should be as short,
straight and smooth as possible to
minimise any resistance to the air
throughflow.

5
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before setting up the appliance
stack, check it for any externally visible
damage.
Do not install or use a damaged
appliance.
~ The electrical safety of this
appliance stack can only be
guaranteed when it is correctly earthed.
It is most important that this basic
safety requirement is observed and
regularly tested, and where there is any
doubt the on-site wiring system should
be inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
~ Unauthorised repairs could result in
unforeseen dangers for the user, for
which the manufacturer cannot accept
liability. Repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele approved service technician. If this is not done, any
resultant damage will not be covered
by the guarantee.
~ Do not make any alterations to the
appliance stack, unless authorised to
do so by Miele.
~ To ensure the correct performance
of the appliances and to prevent the
risk of faults and fire, it is important to
check it and carry out maintenance on
a regular basis.
~ In the event of a fault or for cleaning
purposes, the appliance is only
completely isolated from the electricity
supply when:
– the connection plugs on the
washer-extractor and on the tumble
dryer have been withdrawn, or
– the on-site fuse has been disabled for
both the washer-extractor and tumble
dryer, or
– the screw-out fuse has been disabled
for both the washer-extractor and the
tumble dryer (in countries where this
is applicable).
~ This washer-dryer and tumble dryer
stack must only be connected to the
on-site water supply using a hose that is
in good condition. Old hoses must not
be re-used. Check the hose regularly for
signs of wear. Change in good time to
avoid the risk of leaks and subsequent
damage.
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. Only when these parts are
fitted can the safety standards of the
appliance be guaranteed.
~ Do not use force to open the
washer-extractor drum door. The door
handle is fitted with a safety device to
ensure that the door lock functions
correctly.
6
Warning and Safety instructions
~ In areas which may be subject to
infestation by cockroaches or other
vermin, pay particular attention to keeping
the appliance stack in a clean condition at
all times. Any damage which may be
caused by cockroaches or other vermin
will not be covered by the guarantee.
~ If this appliance stack is being used in
a commercial environment please ensure
that all relevant health and safety
regulations are obeyed.
~ This appliance stack may only be used
in mobile installations such as ships, if a
risk assessment of the installation has
been carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
Correct use
~ Do not install the appliance stack in a
room where there is a risk of frost
occurring. Frozen hoses may burst or split.
The reliability of the control unit may be
impaired at temperatures below freezing
point.
The ambient room temperature should be
between +2°C and +50°C.
~ Always keep the area around the
appliance stack free of dust and fluff. Dust
drawn into the appliances can cause
blockages over time. Faults can then
occur as well as the risk of fire.
~ Before using the washer-extractor and
tumble dryer stack for the first time, check
that the transit bars at the rear of the
washer-extractor have been removed (see
section on "Installation and connection").
During spinning, a transit bar which is still
in place may result in damage to both the
appliance stack and adjacent furniture or
appliances.
~ Turn off the stopcock if the
appliance is to be left for any length of
time (e.g. holiday), especially if there is
no floor drain (gully) in the immediate
vicinity.
~ Flooding danger.
If hooking the drain hose into a wash
basin, check that the water can drain
off quickly enough to prevent the sink
from overflowing. Make sure the drain
hose is secure, so that the force of the
water flowing out of the hose does not
dislodge it.
~ Take care to ensure that foreign
objects (e.g. nails, pins, coins, paper
clips) do not find their way into the
washer-extractor with the laundry. It is
particularly important to ensure that
items are free of any metal filings which
may be hidden in them. These may
damage components of the
washer-extractor (e.g. suds container,
drum), which in turn can result in
damage to the laundry.
~ If the correct amount of detergent is
dispensed, the washer-extractor should
not need to be descaled. If, however,
you do wish to descale it, only use
proprietary non-corrosive descaling
agents and strictly observe the
instructions on the packaging. A
special descaling agent is available to
order from the Miele Spare Parts
Department or your Miele dealer. Follow
the instructions for use on the
packaging carefully.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Textiles which have been
pre-treated in solvent based cleaning
agents must be thoroughly rinsed in
clean water before being washed in the
washer-extractor.
~ Never use solvent based cleaning
agents (e.g. those containing benzine)
in the washer-extractor, as this may
result in damage to component parts
and create toxic fumes. Such agents
also pose a fire and explosion hazard.
~ Benzine, petrol, paraffin or any
easily flammable liquid must not be
stored or used near the appliance
stack. Fire and explosion risk.
~ Only use dyes specified by the
manufacturer as being suitable for use
in a washing machine. Always observe
the manufacturer's instructions
carefully.
~ Colour run and dye removers
contain sulphur compounds which can
cause damage such as corrosion. Do
not use these products in the
washer-extractor.
~ Avoid contact of stainless steel
surfaces (front, lid, casing) with liquid
cleaning and disinfecting agents which
contain chlorine or sodium
hypochlorite. These agents can have a
corrosive effect on stainless steel.
Aggressive vapours containing chlorine
bleach can also be corrosive. Do not
store open containers of these agents
near the appliance.
~ Do not use a pressure washer or
hose to clean the appliance stack.
~ It is particularly important to observe
manufacturer's instructions when using
a combination of cleaning agents and
special application products. Only use
the product for the application
described by the manufacturer to avoid
any material damage or the occurrence
of strong chemical reactions.
~ The tumble dryer must only be used
when it is connected to a suitable
ducting system. The installation site
must be adequately ventilated.
~ The ducting must not be connected
to
– a chimney or vent flue which is in
use,
– or to ducting which ventilates rooms
with fireplaces,
– or to chimneys being used by other
appliances.
Smoke or exhaust fumes can cause
poisoning.
~ Check all parts of the extraction
system on a regular basis (e.g. wall
vent, external grille, bends in the
ducting etc.) and make sure they are all
free of any hindrance. A build-up of fluff
will prevent a free flow of air through the
system. If the dryer is to be connected
to an existing ducting system, this must
be checked for suitability beforehand.
~ Adequate ventilation is essential to
avoid the danger of asphyxia and
toxic fumes where another appliance
which also uses the room air (e.g. gas,
oil or coal fired heater, continuous flow
8
Warning and Safety instructions
or other water heater) is installed in the
same or an adjacent room.
To ensure safe operation, and to
prevent gases given off by these
appliances being drawn back into the
room, an underpressure of 4 Pa is the
maximum permissible.
Ventilation can be maintained by:
– air inlets in the external wall which
cannot be closed or blocked, or
– by fitting a window contact switch
which ensures that the appliance
can only be operated when the
window is open.
If in doubt, the advice of a competent
builder must be sought.
~ If more than one tumble dryer is
being installed using a joint ducting
system, each dryer must have its own
non-return flap to the joint ducting
system.
Accessories
~ Accessory parts may only be fitted
when expressly approved by Miele. If
other parts are used, guarantee,
performance and product liability
claims will be invalidated.
Disposing of your old
appliance
~ Before disposing of an old
washer-dryer and tumble dryer stack,
disable the washer-extractor door lock.
This way you will prevent children from
accidentally locking themselves in and
endangering their lives.
Miele cannot be held liable for
damage caused by non-compliance
with these Warning and Safety
instructions.
Otherwise the dryers could be
damaged, endangering their electrical
safety.
~ The fluff filter must be cleaned
regularly.
~ The dryer must not be used without
the fluff filter in place or if the fluff filter
is damaged in any way. Damaged
filters can cause operational faults and
blockages in the airways, the heating
elements and in the ducting. Fire
hazard!
In the event of a damaged filter, switch
the dryer off and replace the filter with a
new one.

Notes and tips on laundry care
1. Sort the laundry for washing
Sorting laundry
^ Sort the laundry by colour and by
care label. Most garments have a
textile care label in the collar or side
seam.
Dark textiles often contain excess dye
and should be washed separately
several times before being included in
a mixed load. Always wash whites and
coloureds separately.
– Curtains: Remove lead weights first
or place in a laundry bag.
^ Empty all pockets.
,Foreign objects (e.g. nails,
coins, paper clips, etc.) can cause
damage to textiles and to
components in the washer-extractor.
Removing marks
^ Badly soiled areas, stains etc. should
be cleaned as soon as possible,
preferably whilst still fresh. Spillages
should be carefully dabbed off using
a soft, colourfast cloth. Do not rub.
Badly soiled areas can be pre-treated
with liquid detergent, stain removers
etc. first, following the manufacturer's
instructions. With particularly stubborn
stains ask your dry cleaner for advice.
,Do not use solvent-based
cleaning agents in the
washer-extractor.
16
– Underwiring and collar stiffeners:
Any loose wiring in bras, shirt collar
stiffeners, etc. should be removed or
sewn in.
– Knitted garments, trousers and
jeans, T-shirts and sweat shirts - turn
inside out, if recommended by the
manufacturer.
– Close any zips, fasten hooks and
eyes etc before washing.
– Fasten duvet covers, pillow cases
etc. to prevent small items from
being rolled up inside them.
– See "Programme chart" in separate
booklet supplied for further tips.
Do not wash any items in the
washer-extractor which are specified
by the manufacturer as not washable
on the care label (h symbol).
Notes and tips on laundry care
2. Load the washer-extractor
drum
^ Switch the washer-extractor on with
the On/Off button K.
^ To open the drum door pull on the
handle.
3. Select a programme
^ Select the most appropriate
programme for the load being
washed.
See "Programme chart" in the separate
booklet supplied for details of which
programmes are available.
Do not use force as it is fitted with a
safety device to prevent it being
opened by mistake. Forcing the door
handle can cause damage to the
locking mechanism (see "Problem
solving guide, The door will not
open").
^ Unfold the laundry and load loosely
into the drum. Mixing both large and
small items gives better wash results
and also helps distribute the load
evenly during spinning.
The most efficient use of energy and
water is achieved when a full load is
washed. However, do not overload as
this causes creases and reduces
cleaning efficiency.
^ Close the drum door. Press the door
firmly to shut it and then lock the
handle in position. Do not slam the
drum door.
,Make sure that no items are
caught between the door and the
drum.

Notes and tips on laundry care
1. Sort the laundry for drying
Before drying
– Wash heavily soiled items very
thoroughly, ensuring that you use
sufficient detergent and select a high
temperature. If in doubt, wash the
items several times.
– Do not put soaking wet items into the
tumble dryer Make sure that your
laundry is thoroughly spun before
drying.
The higher the spin, the greater the
savings that can be made in energy
and time during drying.
– Stitch in or remove loose underwiring
from bras.
– Leave jackets open and undo any
long zips so that textiles dry evenly.
– For an even drying result, it is
important to . . .
. . . spin,
. . . shake out,
. . . and sort items according to
fabric type, size, care label and the
drying level required.
– New dark-coloured garments should
be washed and dried separately
from light-coloured garments the first
few times, to avoid the risk of colours
running and discolouring other
garments or even the plastic
components in the dryer.
Dark-coloured fibres can also settle
on light-coloured garments and vice
versa.
– Starched laundry can be dried in the
tumble dryer. To achieve the usual
finish, double the amount of starch
should be used.
– Check the seams of padded or
down-filled items to prevent the risk
of fillings coming out. These could
catch fire in the tumble dryer.
– Tie together textile belts and apron
ties to stop them getting tangled.
– Fasten duvet covers etc. to prevent
small items from being trapped
inside them. Fasten hooks and eyes.
19
Notes and tips on laundry care
2. Load the tumble dryer
,Using the tumble dryer
incorrectly could cause a fire. Read
the "Warning and Safety instructions"
before using the dryer.
,Make sure that objects, e.g.
detergent dispensing balls, have
been removed from the laundry.
They could melt and cause damage
to the dryer or the laundry.
– Do not overload the drum.
Overloading can cause unnecessary
wear and tear to the laundry, give a
disappointing drying result and
cause more creasing.
– To save energy, always observe the
maximum load for each programme
(see the separate booklet
"Commissioning, Programme chart
and Settings").
– Minimum iron fabrics tend to crease
more the greater the load. This is
also the case for garments made
from very fine weave fabrics, such as
shirts or blouses.
If necessary, reduce the size of the
load for these types of fabrics.
3. Select a programme
– On many programmes, different
drying levels can be selected
depending on individual
requirements
. . e.g.Normal+ for laundry that you
want to fold and put away immediately after drying.
20
. . . e.g. Machine iron or Hand iron if
the laundry needs to be ironed after
drying.
See separate booklet
"Commissioning, Programme chart
and Settlings".
– For delicate fabrics with the r care
label, select Low temperature as
well.
– Down-filled garments have linings
which have a tendency to shrink,
depending on the quality of the item.
They can be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
– Pure linen items should only be
machine dried if specified as suitable
by the manufacturer on the care
label, as the surface of the fabric
may otherwise become rough. They
can be partially dried using the
Smoothing programme.
– Woollens and wool blends tend to
become matted and shrink if dried in
a tumble dryer. Only dry these
fabrics in the Woollens handcare
programme.
– Loopknit garments (e.g. T-shirts and
underwear) tend to shrink depending
on their quality. Do not over-dry .
When purchasing these garments it
is advisable to take their shrinkage
properties into account.

Short washing instructions
D Add detergent
Take the level of soiling and water
hardness into account.
Too little detergent results in:
– Laundry not getting properly clean,
and with time may become grey and
hard to the touch.
– Greasy particles clinging to laundry.
– Limescale deposits on the heater
elements.
Too much detergent results in:
– Excessive foam which causes a low
level of agitation and poor wash,
rinse and spin results.
^ Pull out the detergent drawer and
add detergent to the compartments
as follows:
i = Detergent for the pre-wash
– A burden to the environment.
j = Detergent for the main wash
See "Detergent" for further information.
§
This machine is set up for
connection to an optional external
dispensing system for dispensing
liquid agents (see "Detergent External dispensing system").
= Fabric conditioner, liquid starch
or proofing agent
^ Close the detergent drawer.
The detergent drawer must not be
opened during a programme. It
must remain closed whilst the
machine is in use.
The § compartment is not used
during Disinfection programmes.
Do not put anything in the §
compartment.

E Remove the laundry when the
programme has finished
When a programme is selected, the
estimated duration will appear in the
display. Please be aware that it is only
an estimate.
Anti-crease (if selected) and Finish will
appear in the display to indicate that
the programme has finished.
The following factors all affect the
estimated time remaining: residual
moisture content after spinning; type of
fabric; size of load; room temperature;
fluctuations in power supply.
The electronics continually assess
conditions in the dryer and adjust the
estimated time remaining for a more
accurate reading. Because of this, the
time displayed can alter during the
course of a programme.
During the anti-crease phase the drum
will continue to turn at intervals until the
laundry is removed. This helps to
prevent laundry creasing.
It is advisable to remove laundry as
soon as the programme has
finished.
Before the end of a programme
In many programmes the heating
phase is followed by the cooling down
phase: Cooling down will appear in the
display. The programme is not finished
until the cooling down phase has been
completed.
Do not switch the tumble dryer off

Installation and connection
Installation surface
Removing the transit bars
,Do not install the appliance
stack near or directly above an open
gully or floor drain. Moisture from
these can penetrate the stack and
damage electrical components.
,Ensure that the feet of the
washer-extractor and the floor are
dry to prevent the washer-extractor
from slipping during the spin cycle.
A concrete floor is the most suitable
installation surface, being far less prone
to vibration during the spin cycle than
wooden floorboards or a carpeted
surface.
^ Release the catch on the
washer-extractor and turn the left
hand transit fitting clockwise by 90°.
^ The appliance stack must be level
and securely positioned.
^ To avoid vibrations during spinning, it
should not be installed on soft floor
coverings.
If installing on a wooden joist floor:
^ We recommend a plywood base (at
least 69 x 77 x 3 cm). The base
should span several joists and be
bolted to the joists and not only to the
floorboards. Check for the presence
of pipes and cables first.
^ Then withdraw the transit bar.
If possible, install the stack in a corner,
as this is usually the most stable part of
the floor.
69
Installation and connection
,To avoid the risk of injury the
holes for the transit bars must be
covered after they have been
removed.
^ Release the catch and turn the right
hand transit fitting anti-clockwise by
90°.
^ Plug the holes with the plastic caps
supplied.
,The appliance stack must not be
moved without the transit bars in
place.
Keep them in a safe place for future
use. They must be re-fitted if the
stack is to be moved again (e.g.
when moving house).
^ Then withdraw the transit bar.
,Ensure the stack is stable during
transportion.
Re-fitting the transit bars
Re-fitting is carried out by reversing the
procedure.

Levelling the washer-extractor
Ensure that the feet of the
washer-extractor and the floor are dry
to prevent the washer-extractor from
slipping during the spin cycle.
,The appliance stack must stand
perfectly level on all four feet to
ensure safe and proper operation.
Incorrect installation may increase
electricity and water consumption and
may cause the laundry stack to move
about.
Screwing out and adjusting the feet
The four adjustable feet underneath the
washer-extractor are used to level the
appliance stack. All four feet are
screwed in when the appliance stack is
delivered.
First align and level the washerextractor.
^ Use a spirit level to check that the
washer-extractor is standing level.
^ Hold foot 1 securely with a pipe
wrench. Turn counter nut 2 again
using the spanner supplied until it
sits firmly up against the housing.
,All four counter nuts must sit
firmly up against the housing. Please
also check this for the feet which did
not need adjustment. Otherwise
there is the danger of the appliance
stack moving during use.
^ Using the spanner supplied, turn
counter nut 2 in a clockwise
direction. Then turn counter nut 2
together with foot 1 to unscrew.

Installation and connection
Plumbing
Cold water connection
The stack should be connected to a
mains water supply in accordance with
local and national safety regulations.
The cold water inlet hose (blue
stripes) must be connected to the
on-site cold water supply via a 3/4"
threaded union. It is is not suitable
for connection to a hot water supply.
Water regulations UK only
This washer-extractor and tumble dryer
stack is approved for all UK
applications as suitable for category 5.
The product is listed in the WRAS
regulations advisory scheme directory
and is suitable for direct connection to
mains drinking water. No special
plumbing arrangements e.g. break
tanks are required.
Three Water Council approved double
check valves are supplied in the
accessories pack provided with the
washer-extractor. They should be fitted
in between the stopcocks and the water
inlet hoses.
The water-extractor and tumble dryer
stack is designed to operate with a flow
pressure of between 1 and 10 bar
(100 kPa and 1,000 kPa). At higher
water pressures it is essential to fit a
reducer valve.
Connection to the water supply should
be carried out by a qualified plumber
and should incorporate a stopcock with
a 3/4" thread. The stopcock should be
fitted by an authorised plumber.
,The connection point is subject
to mains water pressure. Turn on the
stopcock slowly and check for leaks.
Correct the position of the washer
and union if appropriate.
Maintenance and care
Only use a genuine Miele hose should
you ever need a replacement. Miele
hoses are tested to withstand pressure
of at least 70 bar (7,000 kPa).
In order to protect the water inlet
valve, the two dirt filters - one in the
open end of the inlet hose, one at
the inlet point in the
washer-extractor must not be
removed.
Extension hose
Longer hoses 2.5 or 4.0 m in length are
available from your Miele dealer or the
Miele Spare Parts Department as
optional extras.
The washer-extractor is supplied with
two hoses for connection to a hot and
cold water supply.
75
Installation and connection
Hot water connection
To keep electricity consumption costs
down this washer-extractor and tumble
dryer stack can be connected to a
(ring) piped hot water supply, max.
temperature 70°C. It is not economical
to run it from an individual hot water
supply if it is not in continuous use, as
the water in the supply pipes cools
down and more energy would be
required to reheat the water. For hot
water connection the same conditions
apply as for cold water connection.
The inlet hose with the red stripes (hot
water hose) is connected to the
stopcock.
For operational reasons the
washer-extractor must not be
connected to hot water only.
The programme durations may be
longer.
^ Unscrew the inlet hose (hot water red stripes).
^ Plug the inlet connection with the
blanking cap supplied.
Grey water connection
The washer-extractor can be
connected to a grey water supply.
^ Unscrew the blanking cap from the
grey water valve.
^ Connect the additional inlet hose to
this valve.
The main wash and rinses water
settings must then be set as
appropriate.
If the washer-extractor is not connected
to the hot water connection, the Main
wash water setting must be set
accordingly and the hot water inlet
hose must be detached:
^ Go to Settings menu/Supervisor level
menu and select the Grey water
option.
^ Go to the Settings/Supervisor
level/Main wash water and select the
Cold option.
It is possible to connect the
washer-extractor and tumble dryer
stack to a hot water supply, 70°C to a
maximum of 85°C. A special inlet hose
is required for this option. The machine
must also be reprogrammed by a Miele
service technician or Miele authorised
service dealer.
76
Hot water supply
Installation and connection
Water drainage
Drain pump
The washer-extractor drains via a drain
pump with a delivery head of 1 metre*.
The drain hose must not be kinked as
this restricts drainage. The swivel elbow
at the end of the hose can be turned in
either direction, or can be detached if
required, with a sharp twist and pull.
Drain hose connection:
1. Connected securely to a plastic
drain pipe with a rubber nipple.
There is no need to use a non-return
valve.
2. Connected securely to a standpipe.
3. Connected securely to a floor gully.
If required, the drain hose can be
extended to a length of 5 m. The
necessary parts can purchased from
the Miele Spare Parts Department or
your Miele dealer.
* For a delivery head of more than 1 m
(up to a max. of 1.6 m) a second
duo-drain pump is available with the
corresponding kit from the Miele Spare
Parts Department or your Miele Dealer.
77
Installation and connection
Electrical connection
The appliance stack is supplied with
two connection cables without plugs.
,The voltage, rated load and fuse
rating are given on the data plate.
Please ensure these match the
on-site mains supply.
This appliance stack must be
connected to the electrical supply in
accordance with local and national
safety regulations (BS 7671 in the UK).
Connection to the electrical supply,
electrical safety checks including
checking of the fuse rating, and any
changes to on-site electrical installation
must only be carried out by a suitably
qualified, competent and authorised
person.
Connection should be made via
suitable plugs and sockets or isolator
switches.
If the appliance stack is connected via
sockets, both sockets must be located
immediately next to each other.
Plug and socket connections will also
make it easier to carry out mandatory
safety checks.
Socket connections or isolator switches
should be accessible at any time for
disconnecting the machines from the
electrical supply.
Provision should be made on-site for
all-pole simultaneous disconnection of
both machines, either for hard-wired or
plug top connected machines.
78
Isolator switches used for the
connection of the machines should
have a contact gap of 3 mm or more in
the “open” position.
,If the machines are isolated from
the electrical supply adequate
measures must be taken to ensure
that the machines cannot be
reconnected to the electrical supply
until all work has been carried out.
For extra safety, it is advisable to
protect the machines with suitable
residual current devices (RCD) with a
trip current of 30 mA. The RCDs should
be type B (sensitive to all types of
current).
WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE
MUST BE EARTHED
Installation - extraction ducting
General
Ventilation can be maintained by:
,Before operating the appliance
– an open window.
stack, a suitable ducting system
must be installed to carry the moist
air from the dryer to the outside.
– a window contact switch.
This prevents the dryer being used
when a window is shut.
The appliance stack must be
completely disconnected from the
mains electricity supply whilst the
ducting system is installed.
The venting outlet (e.g. in a wall) should
be installed in such a way that the moist
expelled air: .
. . . cannot be drawn back into the room
in which the appliance is installed;
. . . cannot cause any damage to the
building or other nuisance.
The dryer uses the room air. It is
therefore essential to ensure adequate
ventilation to avoid the danger of
asphyxia and toxic fumes caused by
gases given off by other appliances
being drawn back into the room.
. . . Insufficient ventilation will also
cause drying times to be considerably
longer.
– air inlets in the external wall which
cannot be closed or blocked (min.
237 cm 2).
Avoid:
– very long ducting systems.
– too many tight bends or corners.
Otherwise the drying result will be less
effective, and it will take longer and use
more energy.
Suitable materials
– for the ventilation ducting:
flexible ducting* or plastic piping
with a diameter of at least 100 mm.
– for venting to the outside:
a wall pipe kit* or a window vent kit*.
* optional accessory
Where ducting is laid at a gradient, it is
advisable to provide drainage for
condensate at the lowest point, e.g. into
a container or if possible an
appropriately located floor gully.
79
Installation - extraction ducting
To calculate the total duct
length
Friction against the inner walls of the
vent ducting will slow down the
expelled air as it passes through the
ducting. An elbow, bend, non-return
flap or wall vent creates more friction
than a straight duct. The friction
created by each of these is expressed
as an additional duct length factor.
The additional duct length factors are
calculated by comparing the friction
created by, for example, an elbow to
that created by 1 metre of straight
plastic piping (see Table 1).
The additional duct length factor for
each item needs to be added together
to ascertain the total length which will
be needed for the venting system. The
total duct length is a means of
calculating the friction created by the
venting system as a whole.
A larger internal duct diameter also
helps reduce friction. If the total duct
length is more than 20 m, the duct
diameter should be increased (see
Table II).
Procedure
1. First measure the distance requiring
straight ducting. Multiply this amount
by the corresponding additional
length factor in Table I.
2. Establish the number of angles,
bends etc., and add their additional
length factors together with the help
of Table I.
3. Add all the additional length factors
to give the total duct length.
