1 Important safety information
This section includes safety information that will
help protection from risks of personal injuries
or materialistic damages. Failure to follow
these instructions shall cause any warranty and
reliability commitment to become void.
General safety
•	 Never place the machine on a carpet-
covered floor, otherwise, lack of airflow
beneath the machine may cause electrical
parts to overheat. This will cause problems
with your machine.
•	 If the power cable or mains plug is
damaged, you must call Authorised Service
Agent for repair.
•	 The product should not be plugged in
during installation, maintenance and repair
works. Such works should always be made
by the technical service. Manufacturer shall
not be held responsible for damages arising
from processes carried out by unauthorised
persons.
•	 Connect the product to a grounded outlet
protected by a fuse of suitable capacity as
stated in the technical specifications table.
•	 Operate your product at temperatures
between +5°C and +35°C.
•	 Do not use electrical devices in the product.
•	 Do not connect the air exit of the product
to the chimney holes which are used for the
exhaust fumes of the devices operating with
gas or other types of fuel.
•	 You must provide enough ventilation in
order to prevent gases exiting from devices
operating with other types of fuels including
the naked flame from accumulating in the
room due to the back fire effect.
•	 Always clean the lint filter before or after
each loading.
•	 Never operate your dryer without the lint
filter installed.
•	 Do not allow fibre, dust and dirt
accumulation around the exhaust exit and
at adjacent areas.
•	 Power cable plug must be within easy
reach after installation.
•	 Do not use extension cords, multi-plugs
or adaptors to connect the dryer to power
supply in order to decrease the risk of
electric shock.
•	 Do not make any changes on the plug
supplied with the product. If it is not
compatible with the socket, have a qualified
electrician change the socket with a
suitable one.
•	 Items cleaned or washed with gasoil/fuel oil,
dry-laundry solvents and other combustible
or explosive materials as well as the items
that are contaminated or spotted with such
materials should not be dried in the product

not be dried in the dryer.
•	 Do not use fabric softeners and anti-static
products unless they are recommended by
the manufacturers of the fabric softener or
the product.
•	 This product must be grounded. Grounding
installation decreases the risk of electric
shock by opening a path with low
resistance for the electricity flow in case of
a malfunction or failure. Power cable of this
product is equipped with a conductor and
a grounding plug that allows for grounding
the product. This plug must be installed
appropriately and inserted into a socket

possible when washing them. Thus,
the drying time is shortened and energy
consumption is decreased.
•	 Pay attention to dry same types of laundry
together.
•	 Follow the instructions in the user manual
for programme selection.
•	 Make sure that sufficient clearance is
provided at the front and rear side of the
dryer for air circulation. Do not block the
grill at the front side of the product.

during drying unless necessary. If you must
certainly open the door, pay attention not to
keep it open for a long time.
•	 Do not add new (wet) laundry during drying.
•	 Lint and fibres released from the laundry to
the air during the drying cycle are collected
in the “Lint Filter”. Make sure that you clean
the filters before or after each drying.
•	 In models with condenser, make sure that
you clean the condenser regularly at least
once every month or after every 30 drying
cycles.
•	 In vented models, follow the chimney
connection rules in the user manual and

Page: 26
27 EN
alcohol, fuel oil, kerosene, stain remover,
turpentine, paraffin and paraffin removers
must be washed in hot water with plenty of
detergent before being dried in the dryer.
•	 Garments or pillows bolstered with rubber
foam (latex foam), shower bonnets, water
resistant textiles, materials with rubber
reinforcement and rubber foam pads should
not be dried in the dryer.
•	 Do not use fabric softeners and anti-static
products unless they are recommended by
the manufacturers of the fabric softener or
the product.
•	 Do not dry the underwear reinforced with
metal parts in the dryer. If these metal
reinforcements loosen and break during
drying, they will damage your dryer.
Preparing laundry for drying
•	 Check all laundry items before loading them
into the product to make sure that there are
no lighters, coins, metal items, needles and
etc. in their pockets or on any part of them.
•	 Fabric softeners and similar products must
be used in accordance with the instructions
of the manufacturer of the relevant products.
•	 All laundry must be spun at the highest spin
speed that your washing machine allows for
the laundry type.
•	 Laundry may be tangled after washing.
Separate your laundry before placing them
into your dryer.
•	 Sort your laundry according to their types
and thicknesses. Dry the same type of
laundry together. E.g.: fine kitchen towels
and table cloths dry faster than the thick
bath towels.
Correct load capacity
A	 Consider the information in the "Programme
Selection Table". Always start the
programme in accordance with the
maximum load capacity.
C	 Adding laundry to the machine more
than the level shown in the figure is not
recommended. Drying performance will
degrade when the machine is overloaded.
Furthermore, your dryer and your laundry
can be damaged.
C	 Place your laundry into the drum loosely so
that they will not get tangled.
CLarge pieces (E.g.: bed sheets, quilt covers,
large tablecloths) may bunch-up. Stop the
dryer 1-2 times during drying process to
separate bunched-up laundry.
