Preparing the load

Before using the dryer for the first time wipe the inside of the drum and door with a damp cloth.

Make sure that the laundry you are going to dry is suitable for drying in a tumble dryer, as shown by the care symbols on each item.

Clothes preparation

Check that all fastenings are closed and that pockets are empty. Turn the articles inside out. Place clothes loosely in the drum to make sure that they don’t get tangled.

Do not overload the drum, particularly when drying large items, otherwise, the laundry may stick to the drum and not dry evenly.

Maximum drying weight

Cottons Max. 6 kg

Synthetics Max. 3 kg

D) By drying level

Sort into: Iron dry, cupboard dry, etc.

For delicate articles press the ‘DELICATES’ () button to select low drying temperature.

Do not tumble dry:

Woollens, silk, delicate fabrics, nylon stockings, delicate embroidery, fabrics with metallic decorations, garments with PVC or leather trimmings, training shoes, bulky items such as sleeping bags, etc.

IMPORTANT: Do not dry articles which have been treated with a dry cleaning fluid or rubber clothes (danger of fire or explosion).

Energy saving

Only put into the tumble dryer laundry which has been thoroughly wrung or spin-dried.The drier the laundry the shorter the drying time thus saving electricity.

Sort the load as follows:

A) By care symbols

On the collar or inside seam:

Suitable for tumble drying.

Tumble drying at high temperature.Tumble drying at low temperature only.

DO NOT tumble dry.

B)By amount and thickness

Whenever the load is bigger than the dryer capacity, separate clothes according to thickness (e.g. towels from thin underwear).

C)By type of fabric

Cottons/linen: Towels, cotton jersey, bed and table linen.

Synthetics: Blouses, shirts, overalls, etc. made of polyester or polyamid, as well as for cotton/synthetic mixes.

ALWAYS try to dry the maximum weight of laundry, this will save time and electricity.

ALWAYS check that the filter is clean before every drying cycle.

NEVER put dripping wet items into the tumble dryer, this may damage the appliance.

ALWAYS ensure that the covers are fitted to the two unused vent outlets, this will maintain maximum drying performance.

After 10 minutes of cooldown the drum will stop rotating automatically.

1.Open the door and load the drum with laundry. Ensure that garments do not hinder closure of the door.

2.Gently close the door pushing it slowly until you hear the door ‘click’ shut.

3.Press the ‘ON/OFF’ button to switch on the dryer. The indicator will light.

4.Turn the ‘PROGRAM’ dial to select the required drying program:

e.g. if you are drying cotton laundry and would like it suitable for ironing please select the iron dry option.

The PRE-IRONINGsetting shown by the symbolon the ‘PROGRAM’ dial provides a conditioning and anticrease function. The dryer will heat the load for 9 minutes followed by a 3 minute cool down period and is especially good for garments which may have been left for some time prior to ironing, in a linen basket for example. Garments may also become stiffened when dried outside on a washing line or inside on radiators. ThePRE-IRONINGprocess relaxes the creases in the fabric making ironing quicker and easier.

5.If drying delicate items on the ‘timed’ programs press the ‘DELICATES’ button to reduce the heat level. Press again on completion, to select high temperature.

HIGH Heat setting

LOW Heat setting

6.Press the ‘START’ button. The dryer will start automatically and the ‘HEATING’ indicator will light.


(i)The sensor may not detect a small load of small articles. For small loads and separate items or pre-driedfabrics with low moisture content, utilise the timed programs. Set the program between 30 and 75 minutes depending upon load size and dryness required and select high or low heat depending upon the fabric type. If this is not carried out the dryer will only operate for 10 minutes before going into cooldown.

(ii)If the sensor does not operate, for example when a load is too large or too wet to tumble dry, the dryer will automatically go into cooldown after 180 minutes.

The dryer can be set to start up to 9 hours after the program has been set.

To set the time delay option press and release the ‘START DELAY’ button until the required delay (shown in hours) appears on the display and then press the ‘START’ button. The display will flash.

As each hour passes the figure shown on the display will count down. When it gets to 0 the dryer will start.

The delay can be changed at any time simply by pressing the button until the new figure appears on the display.

If there is an interruption to the electricity supply the time delay will be lost and so will have to be re-setwhen the power is restored.

7.To switch off the buzzer, which sounds at the end of each cycle, press the ‘ALARM OFF’ button.

Drying sensor

A sensor will detect when the load is dry. The drying cycle will then go into the cooldown period and the ‘COOLING’ indicator will light.

8.The load is dried by tumbling in thermostatically controlled warm air. Cool air is used for the last 10 minutes to reduce creasing and cool the load

ready for handling. During this time the ‘COOLING’ indicator is lit.

9.When the program is fully completed the drum will stop rotating. The dial remains at the position of the selected program. The ‘COOLING’ indicator will flash and the buzzer will sound.

10.Open the door and remove the load.




If the load is not removed from the dryer at the end of the drying cycle, a ‘creaseguard’ function is activated. Every 15 minutes the dryer will tumble the load for 5 seconds and the buzzer will sound.

Cleaning the dryer

IMPORTANT: Always switch off and remove the plug from the electricity supply before cleaning this appliance.

Clean the filter after every drying cycle. After each period of use, wipe the inside of the drum and leave the door open for a while to allow circulation of air to dry it. Wipe the outside of the machine and the door with a soft cloth.

DO NOT use abrasive pads or cleaning agents.

To prevent the door sticking, periodically clean the door gasket with a ‘non-scratchcream cleaner.’

This process will be repeated until the ‘creaseguard’ function is cancelled by opening the door.

The ‘COOLING’ indicator will continue to flash while ‘creaseguard’ is activated.

11.Clean the filter after every drying cycle to ensure maximum dryer efficiency. (See ‘Filter’ section.)
