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;
– ensure you have good ventilation in the installation
– clean the micro-fine filter and fine strainer after each
drying cycle;
– spin the laundry well before drying.
Energy consumption depends on spinning speed
set in washing machine. Higher spinning speed -
lower energy consumption.
Important! The appliance must be moved in vertical
position for transport.
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 sur-
• Once in its permanent operating position, check that
the dryer is absolutely level with the aid of a spirit lev-
el. 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 deeppile carpets, strips of
wood or similar. This might cause heat built-up which
would interfere with the operation of the appliance.
Page: 18
• 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 the locka-
ble door, a sliding door a door with a hinge on the op-
posite side to that of the appliance in such a way that a
full opening of the dryer is restricted.

Electrical connection
Details on mains voltage, type of current and the fuses re-
quired should be taken from the type plate. The type plate
is fitted near the loading aperture (see “Product descrip-
tion” chapter).
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
replaced, this must be carried out by our Service Center.
Warning! The power supply cable must be
accessible after installing the machine.
