detergent then well rinsed and spun.
NEVER ● Tumble dry articles that have had chemicals used for cleaning.
NEVER ● Dry articles that are contaminated with flammable substances such
as: petrol, oil, paint, hair lacquer, creams, cooking fat or oil.
NEVER ● Tumble dry: rubber, foam rubber, plastic, plastic foam, nappy pants
or liners, polythene or paper.
Large, very bulky items including duvets and sleeping bags.
NEVER ● Never attempt to stand on top of your dryer, it is not designed for
such use and you could injure yourself or damage the dryer by such
abuse.
NEVER ● Switch electricity On or Off with wet hands.
IMPORTANT
Using your Tumble Dryer is easy.
Nevertheless, for your own safety and to get the best results it is important to know your
Dryer by reading right through this handbook before using your dryer for the first time.
A CHILD COULD CLIMB INTO OR TAMPER WITH AN UNATTENDED
TUMBLE DRYER.
WHEN THE MACHINE IS NOT IN USE SWITCH OFF, REMOVE THE PLUG AND
CLOSE THE DOOR.
IMPORTANT
For your safety
ALWAYS ● When the dryer is not in use, switch off, remove plug, and
close the door.
ALWAYS ● Comply with the specified electrical requirements.
ALWAYS ● Ensure that your dryer is installed correctly and has adequate
ventilation. (see “Where to put and vent your dryer”)
ALWAYS ● Use the vent hose for optimum drying performance.
ALWAYS ● Finish every programme with the cool tumble cycle provided on
the control.
ALWAYS ● Clean the filter, it is essential that the filter is kept clear of fluff
at all times.
ALWAYS ● Observe the rules for drying garments:
In particular woollen articles should not be dried in a
tumble dryer unless they are labelled ‘Superwash’,
‘Machine washable’ or have the ‘May be tumble dried’
symbol:
If in any doubt do not dry wool in the machine.
Unlike other materials, the mechanism of wool
shrinkage is irreversible, i.e. it will not stretch back to
the original size and shape.
ALWAYS ● Buy genuine accessories and spares.
Electrical Requirements
REFER TO THE RATING PLATE FOR VOLTAGE AND CURRENT
REQUIREMENTS. (See diagram for location.)
The dryer should be connected to the mains supply via a suitable
socket which is accessible after installing your dryer.
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the
following:
GREEN/YELLOW - EARTH
BLUE - NEUTRAL
BROWN - LIVE
If a replacement plug is to be fitted, the appropriate wire must be
connected to the correct terminal,the cut-off plug must be disposed
of safely. DO NOT leave where it can be inserted into a socket and
create a shock hazard.
Should the mains lead ever require replacing at any time please
contact your nearest Service Centre. A charge will be made for the
replacement of the mains lead or if you require a longer lead.
The mains lead must only be replaced by a specially prepared
cable obtainable from your Spares Stockist and fitted by a
qualified electrician.
WARNING:This appliance must be earthed!

Where to put and vent your dryer
Your Tumble Dryer should NOT be located adjacent to a gas hob
cooker, heater, or eye level grill as flames from the burners could
cause damage to your machine. When the dryer is fitted under a
work surface allow space for air to enter the rear grille, 10mm above
the dryer minimum.
DO NOT use 2-way adaptors or extension leads.
The Dryer dries your washing by drawing in air that is cool, clean
and relatively dry, heating it and then blowing it through the clothes
as they are gently tumbled. The moisture laden air is then blown out
at the back of the dryer through the vent hose which is
recommended for optimum performance.
When operating the dryer, there has to be adequate ventilation to
avoid the back flow of gases into the room from appliances burning
other fuels, including open fires.
A vent hose must always be fitted when the dryer is used in
conjunction with Mobile Venting.
The hose must be fitted securely into the back of the dryer (see
diagram on previous page). If possible, it is always best to connect
the hose to a permanent outlet close to the dryer (see instructions
below).
Ensure that the end of the hose is not directed towards the air
intake grille at the rear of the dryer.
If permanent installation is not possible, the dryer will work just as
well with the hose passed through a partly-opened window.
NOTE: The vent hose should not exceed 2.4 metres in length
and should be kept free of any possible accumulation of fluff,
lint (and water) by frequently shaking it out. Always ensure that
the hose is not squashed.
See diagram on previous page.

Where to put and vent your dryer
In conjunction with the vent hose we recommend the use of a
Wall/Window Vent Kit. These are available from your retailer or
nearest Spares Centre.
Fitting instructions are supplied with the kits, which can be mounted
through a wall or window. Details of positioning for wall mounting
are as follows:- Break a hole through the wall to the left of the
proposed position for the dryer. Keep the hose as short and straight
as possible to prevent condensed moisture running back into the
dryer. Similarly the duct inserted into the wall should slope
downwards to the outside. For window venting with stacked dryer,
the hole in the window should ideally be made below the outlet and
the hose should be kept as short as possible.
Depending on the frequency of use, it is essential that the areas
A and B in the illustrations are checked periodically and any fluff
or debris removed.
It is particularly important that the vent hose adaptor is fitted
securely thus preventing any moisture laden air from being
emitted back into the room.
NOTE: The dryer should not be pushed so far back that the
hose adaptor is pulled out of position or the hose squashed.
The hose should be kept clear of the air intake grille and kinks
or ‘U’ bends avoided as these will obstruct the hose or trap
condensation.
For open window venting it must be possible for the end of the hose
to be directed downwards to prevent warm, moist air condensing in
the room or in the dryer.

The ‘Cool Tumble’
phase
About 10 minutes before the programme is completed, the heating
elements will be switched off and the programme enters the final
‘Cool Tumble’ phase. During this phase the fabric is cooled. You
should always allow the dryer to complete this phase.
By opening the door you can check the dryness of the load as often
as you wish and if you want to remove some items before they are
fully dry. (This is particularly useful for a mixed load where you want
to iron some items, but others are to be fully dried.)
Never switch the dryer off with a hot load in the drum.
You must terminate every programme with the Cool Tumble Phase.

This is a short programme of approximately 10 minutes to condition previously
dried clothes. See section ‘Easy Iron Programme’.
It consists of a period of heating followed by a short cool tumble period (as
detailed below).
Select HIGH heat for this programme.
It should not be used on damp loads, as it is NOT a drying programme.
To set the required time, all you have to do is turn the Timer Control clockwise
until the required time appears in line with the indicator.
Never turn the Timer Control anti-clockwise.
The chart in the section ‘Guide to Drying Times’ will tell you how much time you
will need for various loads.
This programme is particularly useful in cases where a damp load is required
for ironing or LOW heat drying is required and also for small loads.
About 10 minutes before the programme is completed, the heating elements
are switched off, and the programme enters the final ‘Cool Tumble’ phase.
During this phase, the fabric is cooled. You should always allow the dryer to
complete this phase.
By opening the door, the dryer will stop and you can check the dryness of the
load as often as you wish and if you want to remove (or add) some items before
they are fully dry. (This is particularly useful for a mixed load where you want
to Iron some items, but others to be fully dried).
We recommend that the clothes are removed immediately this programme ends
to minimise creasing.
This light will glow when Auto drying is selected. It will stop glowing when the
load is dry and the programme advances to the cool tumble phase.
This light glows during any drying programme and goes out at the start of the
cool tumble phase.
The button is OUT for ‘LOW’ heat and IN for ‘HIGH’ heat.
The choice of HIGH or LOW heat depends upon the fabric you wish to dry (see
section ‘Sorting your Laundry’).
NEVER SWITCH THE DRYER ‘OFF’WITH A HOT LOAD IN THE
DRUM. YOU MUST TERMINATE EVERY PROGRAMME WITH THE
COOL TUMBLE PHASE.

Sorting your laundry
1. Always separate laundry into the correct fabric groups before
washing and drying.
2. See that all zips are closed, hooks and eyes are fastened and
belt, strings etc. are tied loosely in bows, you will normally have
done this for each item before the washing stage.
3. It is important to extract as much water as possible from each
item before drying. This saves you time and money.
4. Make sure that the items to be dried are suitable for tumble
drying, or are not of a type requiring ‘special attention’ (see“Wash
Care Labels” section).
Your dryer will hold a load of 6kg (13lb) dry weight of natural fabrics.
if you are drying items of man-made fibres (synthetic or acrylics), the
maximum load should not exceed 3kg (6.6lb) dry weight.
This difference is that man-made fibres require more space to tumble-
dry without creasing.
To help you estimate how many items it takes to make up a drying
load, the charts below show the approximate weights of some every-
day washing items.
If you group small cotton or terry-towelling items with a synthetic
fabric load they could be damp at the end of the drying cycle. If this
happens simply give them an additional short period of drying to
finish them off.

Wash Care Labels
Most of today’s fabrics can be tumble dried in your Dryer with no
trouble at all, but there are certain fabric finishes which should be
dried away from direct heat.
The majority of garments now have wash-care labels on them, giving
full washing and drying instructions. These should always be followed
carefully especially when you are drying something for the first time.
Typical symbols are:
May be tumble dried
Do not tumble dry
Or:
Tumble dry at high heat setting
Tumble dry at low heat setting
• Those containing foam rubber or rubber-like materials or plastic
film (e.g. pillows, cushions, PVC rainwear), or any other articles
which are inflammable or contain inflammable substances (e.g.
towels contaminated with hair lacquer
• Fibreglass (e.g. some types of curtains)
• Items which have been dry cleaned
• Woollens. Woollen items need as much care in drying as they do
in washing. The movement of the tumble-drying action causes the
woollen fibre to shrink and distort.
• Garments with the ITCL Code (see ‘Items Requiring Special
Attention’).
Do not tumble dry.
• Large bulky items e.g. continental quilts, sleeping bags, pillows,
cushions, double blankets and large bedspreads. These expand
when drying and would prevent airflow through the Dryer.
WARNING: THE DRYER IS INTENDED FOR USE ONLY
WHERE WATER SOLUTION IS USED FOR THE CLEANING
PROCESS. MISUSE OF A TUMBLE DRYER MAY CREATE A
FIRE HAZARD.
Items not suitable for tumble drying
Page: 7
Items requiring special attention
The drying requirements of blankets and bedspreads will, of course,
vary tremendously according to size and weight. Some, however are
simply too big. if you have difficulty getting them into the Dryer, the
machine will have difficulty drying them properly. Blankets (and
Garments) made from Acrylic fibres (e.g. Acilan, Courtelle, Orion and
Dralon) must be dried with special care on Low heat setting.
Overdrying should be avoided to ensure heat creasing does not
occur.
Your dryer will cope with such clothes very well, but you should
always read the manufacturer’s drying instructions attached to the
garment before you begin.
Starched articles should be dried together in the same load to avoid
the distribution of starch to non-starched items. You should use a
slightly heavier starch solution than you would when drying the items
on the washing line. Make sure that as much of the solution is
removed from the load as possible before placing it in the Dryer.
Remove the items from the dryer as soon as they reach ironing
dampness. If they are overdried the starch will powder, leaving the
fabric limp - which rather defeats the purpose of the exercise!
To make sure all your tumble dried clothes come out really fresh and
soft we recommend you use a liquid fabric conditioner in the final
rinse of your wash. A liquid fabric conditioner restores bounce and
softness and helps eliminate static cling.
Garments with the ITCL code may be cleaned using one of the
Home Dry Cleaning Kits available.
The instructions supplied with the Home Dry Cleaning Kit must be
strictly followed.

How to remove and clean the fluff filter
Position of filter
To remove the filter
A very important part of your dryer is the fluff filter at
the front edge of the drum. It’s there to trap the parti-
cles of lint and fluff which are normally blown away
when clothes are dried on the washing-line.
if the filter is allowed to become blocked, the passage
of warm air through the drum will be severely restrict-
ed. This means your clothes will take much longer than
normal to dry and the cost of drying them will be
increased. it may also damage your dryer.
Small items, e.g. babies socks, may fall onto the filter.
These should be removed so that the filter is not
restricted.
Grip the centre rib and pull the filter upwards and for-
wards through the door seal (see diagram).
Open the filter, and remove the fluff that has collected
on the inside.
Wash or vacuum clean the filter occasionally.
Don’t be alarmed by the amount of fluff you may find on
the filter. It’s part of the wearing, washing and drying
process.
It is essential that the filter is replaced correctly. It must
be fitted so that the symbols, shown on the filter above,
face towards the front of the dryer. Ensure the filter is
fully located into the tumble dryer duct.
WARNING: NEVER USE SHEET FAB-
RIC CONDITIONER. IT MAY FALL INTO
THE FILTER AND RESTRICT THE AIR-
FLOW THROUGH THE DRYER
WARNING: DO NOT OPERATE THE DRYER
WITHOUT CLEANING THE FILTER AFTER
EACH DRYING CYCLE. FAILURE TO CLEAN
THE FILTER MAY RESULT IN A FIRE HAZARD.
WARNING: DO NOT OPERATE THE DRYER
WITHOUT THE FILTER IN POSITION.

Guide to drying times
Please note that the drying times stated below and on appliance
control panel; are a GUIDE only and drying times are affected by:-
Items such as towelling retain a lot of water after spinning, also the
suggested wash programme for small items such as T-Shirts may
sometimes incorporate a low spin speed which has the same effect.
Your drying load may contain the same type of fabric but of different
thicknesses. Thinner items will take less time to dry. Some fabrics,
such as those used for jeans are of closer texture than others and
although light when dry will be heavy after washing and spinning.
Single items of clothes or small loads may take disproportionally
longer to dry. It is more energy efficient to dry larger loads.
As it takes longer to fully dry clothes than to have them ready for
ironing, you may wish to remove some clothes when they are slightly
damp, ready for ironing and then continue to dry the remainder until
they are fully dry.
The label on the garment should tell you the correct heat setting to
select. See ‘Wash Care Labels’.
If the room in which the dryer is situated is cold, your clothes will take
longer to dry than if the room is warm.
Some bulky items such as padded jackets can be dried, with care,
and we do advise that you remove these items several times, shake
them and return them to the dryer.
THERE ARE HOWEVER SOME ITEMS THAT WE DO NOT ADVISE
YOU TO DRY. SEE ‘ITEMS NOT SUITABLE FOR TUMBLE
DRYING’
All fabrics contain a little natural moisture even when ‘dry’ and this nat-
ural moisture should not be lost if the clothes are to remain soft and
fluffy.
Clothes that are dried for too long tend to wrinkle and will need more
ironing than usual, giving you extra work that the Dryer was designed
to remove.

Easy Iron Programme
When to use
‘Easy Iron’
Important!
‘Easy Iron’ provides a short programme consisting of approximately 8
minutes of heat with an approximately 2 minutes cool tumble period. It
is a short conditioning programme that softens the fibres allowing them
to relax making handling and ironing easier and less time consuming.
However garments are dried, outside on the line, inside on a radiator,
hung around the home or using a tumble dryer, once dry they usually
get left in the same position/place for a long period of time. This tends
to cause garment fibre stiffness which can make the handling of
garments difficult and therefore the ironing time longer. Garments
dried in any of the ways described above and left will benefit from the
‘Easy Iron’ programme.
● The ‘Easy Iron’ cycle is not a drying programme. It has been
designed to condition/soften garments that have already been
dried and left unattended in this state for a period of time.
● All materials do not behave in exactly the same way when heated.
For instance, our testing has shown that materials such as
Tencel® and Acrylics are not relaxed quite as effectively by
applying the ‘Easy Iron’ cycle as we found on the more traditional
Cottons and Polycottons.
● To obtain the best results from ‘Easy Iron’ it is important that the
weights recommended below are not exceeded and HIGH heat is
selected. (Heat switch IN).
● For best results We recommend garments should be
removed from the dryer immediately after the ‘Easy Iron’
programme to be hung, folded neatly or ironed.
When this is not possible the ‘Easy Iron’ programme should
be repeated.

Lubrication
Caring for your Dryer
Your tumble dryer needs very little attention. The following simple
steps will keep it performing well.
Switch off electricity and remove plug.
Always clean the filter and turn the drum by hand to check that small
items like handkerchiefs do not get missed.
Clean exterior metal and plastic surfaces with a damp cloth or silicon
polish only. Regularly check and clean if necessary, the vent hose and
any permanent venting fixture to ensure that there has been no accu-
mulation of fluff or lint during the drying process.
Clean fluff from the area below the fluff filter and the rear vent tube.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, scouring agents, acids, chlorine
bleach or metal polish to clean any part of the machine. These could
damage the machine.
Your tumble dryer uses special bearing components. Lubrication by
the user is not necessary and must not be attempted.
We strongly recommend that all appliances are regularly checked for
electrical and mechanical safety.

If something goes wrong
First, don’t panic! There may be nothing wrong at all. Look for your
problem below, then check the things we suggest. More often than
not, this will give you the answer to your problem, and you’ll be able
to carry on without having to telephone your Service Office.
If after this you still cannot get your machine to work, follow the
advice given on the next page.
Check these things first
1. Is the machine plugged in and switched on at the socket?
2. Is the timer control set to required time?
3. Is the door securely closed?
4. Has the fuse blown? (Try plugging in another appliance to check)
5. Is the Timer Delay control set to zero?
6. Have you used an extension lead? Many are not suitable. Try
plugging the dryer directly into a socket to check.
1. Have you forgotten to clean the filter? Check it.
2. Have you selected the correct Heat setting for the type of fabric
you are drying?
3. Is the flexible Vent Hose blocked or kinked? Check it for foreign
objects or condensate (water).
4. Is the air inlet obstructed in any way?
5. Permanent venting - is flap on the storm cover obstructed?
6. Were the clothes ‘excessively wet’ when they were put in?
7. Was the correct time selected?
8. Have you overloaded the dryer?
1. Has the correct programme been selected for the load?
3 - 6kg programme (large)
1 - 3kg programme (small)
Less than 1kg, use timed dry programme.
2. Has HIGH heat been selected?
The auto programmes will not operate on low heat, if low heat is
required use timed dry.
Have you re-read this instruction book?
