• Under no circumstances should you attempt to repair
the machine yourself. Repairs carried out by inexper-
ienced persons may cause injury or serious malfunc-
tioning. Contact your local Service Centre. Always in-
sist on genuine spare parts.
• Items that have been soiled with substances such as
cooking oil acetone, petrol, kerosene, spot removers,
in hot water with an extra amount of detergent before
being dried in the tumble dryer.
• Danger of explosion: Never tumble dry items that have
been in contact with inflammable solvents (petrol, me-
thylated spirits, dry cleaning fluid and the like). As
these substance are volatile, they could cause an ex-
plosion. Only tumble dry items washed with water.
• Risk of fire: items that have been spotted or soaked
with vegetable or cooking oil constitute a fire hazard
and should not be placed in the tumble dryer.
• If you have washed your laundry with stain remover
you must execute an extra rinse cycle before loading
your tumble dryer.
• Please make sure that no gas lighters or matches have
accidentally been left in pockets of garments to be loa-
ded into appliance
Warning! Never stop a tumble dry before the end
of the drying cycle unless all items are quickly re-
moved and spread out so that the heat is dissipated. Risk

property if this is not adhered to. See relevant section
in the user manual.
• Any electrical work required to install this appliance
should be carried out by a qualified electrician or com-
petent person.
• Care must be taken to ensure that the appliance does
not stand on the electrical supply cable.
• If the machine is situated on a carpeted floor, please
adjust the feet in order to allow air to circulate freely.

in the dryer.
• Garments which have been in contact with volatile pe-
troleum products should not be machine dried. If vol-
atile cleaning fluids are used, care should be taken to
ensure that the fluid is removed from the garment be-
fore placing in the machine.

Appliance positioning
• It is recommended that, for your convenience, the ma-
chine is positioned close to your washing machine.
• The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean place,
where dirt does not build up.
• Air must be able to circulate freely all round the appli-
ance. Do not obstruct the front ventilation grille or the
air intake grilles at the back of the machine.
• To keep vibration and noise to a minimum when the
dryer is in use, it should be placed on a firm, level
• Once in its permanent operating position, check that
the dryeris absolutely levelwiththeaidof aspirit level.
If it is not, raise or lower the feet until it is.
• The feet must never be removed. Do not restrict the
floor clearance through deep pile carpets, strips of
wood or similar. This might cause heat built-up which
would interfere with the operation of the appliance.
Page: 25
• The hot air emitted by the tumble dryer can reach tem-
peratures of up to 60°C. The appliance must therefore
not be installed on floors which are not resistant to
high temperatures.
• When operating the tumble dryer, the room tempera-
ture must not be lower than +5°C and higher than
+35°C, as it may affect the performance of the appli-
• Should the appliance be moved, it must be transported
• The appliance must not be installed behind a lockable
side to that of the appliance in such a way that a full
opening of the dryer is restricted.
Removing transport safety packaging
Caution! Before use all parts of the transport
packaging must be removed.
1. Open loading door.
2. Pull off adhesive strips
from inside machine on
top of drum.
3. Remove foil hose and
polystyrene padding from
the machine.
Fitting the vent hose
To simplify the installation, there is a choice of vent out-
lets: one at the back, the others in the left and right-hand
side. Connect the hose to whichever is the more conven-
ient by pulling the ring nut (A) from the vent outlet at the
back, screwingitonto the hose and pushing itfirmly back
into place. The unused vents should now be sealed with
the special snap covers provided.
If the hose is long and the
room temperature low, the
moisture might condense to
water inside the hose. This
is an unavoidable natural
phenomenon. To prevent
this water from Iying in the
tumble dryer, it is advisable
to drill a small hole (via. 3 mm) in the lowest point of the
hose and to place a small container below it. (See picture,
point B).
Once connected to the dryer, run the vent hose to the
desired outlet point, ensuring that the run’s overall length
is less than 2 m, and that it contains no more than two
bends. As to the outlet itself, if you have decided on a
fixed wall/window grille, a good local builder’s merchant
should be able to supply you with the necessary fittings
and installation advice.
Itis importantnottoconnect
the vent hose to, for
example, a cooker hood, or
a chimney or flue pipe
designed to carry the
exhaust from a fuel burning
Note that to avoid conden-
sation problems, it is essential that the dryer be fitted with
the flexible hose to carry its “exhaust” at least beyond the
kitchen units; preferable outside the kitchen. In order to
prevent the appliance from overheating, it is important
that the steam exhaust is unobstructed. Therefore, in case
of a permanent hose fitted to an exterior wall or ceiling, it
must be ensured an exhaust capacity of at least 150 m3/
h. If the dryer is fitted next to kitchen units, make sure that
the vent hose is not squashed. If the hose is partially
squashed, drying efficiency will be reduced, resulting in
Page: 26
longer drying times and higher energy consumption. If
the hose is completely squashed, the safety cut-outs with
which the machine is fitted may operate. When operating
the tumble dryer, the room temperature must not be lower
than +5°C and higher than +35°C, as it may affect the
performance of the appliance.
Electrical connection
Details on mains voltage, type of current and the fuses
required should be taken from the rating plate. The rating
plate is fitted near the loading aperture (see “Product de-
scription” chapter).
Connect the machine to an earthed socket, in accordance
with current wiring regulations.
Warning! The manufacturer declines any
responsibility for damage or injury through failure
to comply with the above safety precautions.
Should the appliance power supply cable need to be
engineer or a qualified electrician. .
The appliance is supplied with a 13 amp plug fitted. In the
event of having to change the fuse in the plug supplied,
a 13 amp ASTA approved BS 1363/A fuse must be used.
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
1 Blue - Neutral
2 cord clamp
3 Brown - Live
4 Green and Yellow - Earth
The wire coloured green and yellow must be connected
to the terminal marked with the letter «E» or by the earth
symbol or coloured green and yellow.
The wire coloured blue must be connected to the terminal
«N» or coloured black.
The wire coloured brown must be connected to the ter-
minal marked «L» or coloured red.
Upon completion there must be no cut, or stray strands
of wire present and the cord clamp must be secure over
the outer sheath.
Warning! A cut off plug inserted into a 13 amp
socket is a serious safety (shock) hazard.
Ensure that the cut off plug is disposed of safely.
Warning! The plug must be accessible after
installing the machine.
Permanent connection
In the case of permanent connection it is necessary that
you install a double pole switch between the appliance
and the electricity supply (mains), with a minimum gap
for the required load in compliance with the current elec-
trical regulations.
The switch must not break the yellow and green earth
cable at any point.
Door reversal
To make it easier to load or unload the laundry, the door
can be reversed. The door must only be reversed by an
authorised service engineer. Please contact your local
Service Force Centre. The engineer will carry out the door
reversal at your cost.
Special accessories

A special stacking kit is
available through your deal-

community waste disposal facilities.
Warning! When disposing of old appliances,
the plug. Remove the doorhook and ensure it is no longer
lockable to prevent young children being trapped inside.
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 pro-
gramme overview;
– clean the filter after each drying cycle;
– spin the laundry well before drying. Example: Con-
sumption data – depending on spinning speed –
for 7kg of laundry, dried using the COTTONS CUP-
BOARD DRY programme.
