SAFETY ADVICES BEFORE USING THE
DRYER / CONNECTIONS
1. Removing the packaging and check
• After unpacking, make sure that the dryer is
undamaged. If in doubt, do not use the dryer.
Contact After-Sales Service or your local retailer.
• If the appliance was exposed to the cold prior to
delivery, keep it at room temperature for a few
hours before operating.
• Keep the packaging materials (plastic bags,
polystyrene parts, etc.) out of reach of children, as
they are potentially dangerous.
• Remove the protective foil from the control panel.
2. Electrical Connections
• Electrical connections must be carried out by a
qualified technician in compliance with the
manufacturer’s instructions and current standard
safety regulations.
• Electrical connection must comply with local
Electricity Board regulations.
• Voltage information, power consumption and the
required fuse protection is shown on the rating
plate mounted at the rear of the dryer.
• The manufacturer cannot accept any liability for
personal injury or damage to property resulting
from failure to adhere to these instructions.
• The dryer must be earthed as prescribed by law.
• Do not use extension leads or multiple adaptors.
• Before any maintenance on the dryer disconnect it
from the mains supply.
• Do not operate the dryer if it has been damaged
during transport. Contact one of our After-Sales
Service technicians.
• Mains cable replacement is only to be carried out by
After-Sales Service.
• After installation access to the mains plug has to be
guaranteed, or the all-pole disconnection has to be
possible with a switch.
3. Installation
• Do not install your dryer where it can be subject to
extreme conditions, such as: poor ventilation,
temperatures below 5°C or above 35°C.
• The appliance must not be installed behind a
lockable door, a sliding door or a door with a hinge
on the opposite side to that of the tumble dryer, in
such a way that a full opening of the tumble dryer
door is restricted.
• Before running the first cycle ensure the water
container and heat exchanger are correctly positioned.
• Only for water container top version: if possible use
a hose to drain the water directly into the domestic
plumbing system. This will avoid having to empty
the water container at the end of each drying cycle
since the condensation water can be directly
drained away. See also chapter “Drainage System”.
• Take care not to install the dryer on a deep-pile carpet.
• Take care not to trap the mains cable between the
dryer and the wall.
Stability:
When installing the dryer always carefully level the
dryer adjusting the four feet and check the correct
levelling with a spirit level.
To built in the dryer
Remove the work-top and replace it with the Built-
In kit (according to Eec Electrical Regulations),
available at your dealer. As prescribed by law, only
a qualified technician has to do the installation.
Stacking kit
Depending on the model, your dryer can be
stacked on top of your front loading washing
machine. Please contact your dealer or our
After-Sales Service.
Minimum housing dimensions:
Width: 600 mm
Height: 855 mm

SAFETY ADVICES AND GENERAL
RECOMMENDATIONS
1. Packing
The packing box may be fully recycled as
confirmed by the recycling symbol .
2. Energy saving tips
• Always dry a full load: depending on the type of
laundry and the programme/drying time.
• By preference use the maximum spin speed
allowed by your washing machine, since draining
the water mechanically requires less energy. You
will save time and energy when running your drying
cycle.
• Do not overdry the laundry.
• Clean the lint filter after every drying cycle.
• Place your dryer in a room with a temperature
between 15° C and 20° C. In case of higher
temperature ventilate the room.
• Always select the correct programme/drying time
for the load in order to obtain the desired drying
results.
• Select the gentle option only with small loads.
• When drying cotton, for example. dry iron dry and
cupboard dry loads together. Start with the iron dry
programme/drying time setting, remove the
laundry to be ironed at the end of that cycle and dry
the remainder of the load on the cupboard dry
setting.
3. Disposing of packaging and old Dryer:
The dryer is built from reusable materials. The
dryer must be disposed of in compliance with local
waste disposal regulations.
• Before scrapping, cut off the power cable so that
the dryer cannot be connected to the mains.
4. Child safety:
Children must not be allowed to play with the dryer.
5. General recommendations:
• Always set the programme/time selector knob to
the “0” position after use.This prevents the dryer
from being switched on accidentally.
• Before cleaning or carrying out maintenance,
switch off the dryer and disconnect it from the
mains supply.
• To clean the outside of the dryer, use a neutral
detergent and a damp cloth.
• Do not use abrasive detergents.
• Do not use inflammable cleansing agents.
• Do not use the tumble dryer if chemicals have been
used for cleaning.
• Garments treated or contaminated with flammable
cleaning sprays or liquids such as petrol, cooking oil
or aerosol sprays must not be put in this dryer.
• Lighters must not be left in pockets.
• Never use and store flammable materials nearby
the dryer.
• Wipe away lint from the door seal and the door
using a damp cloth.
• If the lint filter mesh is clogged, clean it with water
and a soft brush.
• Since lint can go through the filter it is necessary to
clean, from time to time, the complete filter area
(including below the filter) with a brush, a damp
cloth or with a vacuum cleaner.
• If necessary, the power cable may be replaced with
an identical one obtained from our After-Sales
Service. The power cable must only be replaced by
a qualified technician.
6. To minimize the risk of fire in tumble
dryer, the following should be observed:
• Oil-affected item can ignite spontanously, especially
when exposed to heat sources such as in a tumble
dryer. The items become warm, causing an
oxidation reaction in the oil. Oxidation creates
heat. If the heat cannot escape, the items can
become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or
storing oil-affected items can prevent heat from
escaping and so create a fire hazard.
• Do not tumble dry unwashed items in the tumble
dryer.
• If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable
or cooking oil or have been contaminated by hair
care products be placed in a tumble dryer they
should first be washed in hot water with extra
detergent - this will reduce, but not eliminate, the
hazard.
• Items that have been soiled with substances such as
cooking oil, acetone, alcohol, petrol, kerosene,
spot removers, turpentine, waxes and wax
removers should be washed in hot water with an
extra amount of detergent before being dried in the
tumble dryer.
• Items such as foam rubber (latex foam), shower
caps, waterproof textiles, rubber backed articles
and clothes or pillows fitted with foam rubber pads
should not be dried in the tumble dryer.
• Fabric softeners, or similar products, should be
used as specified by the fabric softener instructions.
