Preparing the load

Do not overload the drum, large items when wet can exceed the maximum admissible clothes load

(for example: sleeping bags, duvets).

Before using the tumble dryer for the first time:

Please read this instruction book thoroughly.

Remove all items packed inside drum.

Wipe the inside of the drum and door with a damp cloth to remove any dust which may have settled in transit.

Clothes preparation

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.

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.

Synthetics Max. 3.5 kg

8

40002067.qxd 03/09/2004 14:08 Page 9

Sort the load as follows:

By care symbols

These can be found 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.

If the item does not have a care label it must be assumed that it is not suitable for tumble drying.

By amount and thickness

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

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.

By drying level

40002067.qxd 03/09/2004 14:08 Page 10

Drying advice

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

During the last 15 minutes the load is always tumbled in cool air.

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.

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.

ALWAYS

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

Check that the filter is clean before every drying cycle.

NEVER

Exceed the maximum weight, this will waste time and electricity.

Put dripping wet items into the tumble dryer, this may damage the appliance.

Water Container

The water removed from the laundry during the drying cycle is collected in a container at the bottom of the dryer.

When the container is full the indicator on the control panel will light, and the container MUST be emptied. However, we recommend that the container is emptied after each drying cycle.

NOTE: Very little water will collect during the first few cycles of a new machine as an internal reservoir is filled first.

To remove the container

1.Gently pull out the tray until it is completely removed. Support the tray with both hands. When it is full the water container will weigh about 4kg.

2.Open the the lid located on the top of the container and empty the water out. Refit the lid and slide the water container back into position. PUSH FIRMLY INTO PLACE.

NOTE: If you have the option of drainage near the dryer it is possible to use the discharge kit to provide a permanent drain for the water collected by the dryer. This will remove the need to empty the water tray. All the information for assembly of the kit is contained in the kit envelope.

13

40002067.qxd 03/09/2004 14:08 Page 14

Selecting the Programme

The Sensor Dry machine gives many options for drying the laundry to suit all circumstances.

The table below lists the programmes and the function of each programme.

Programme

Description

 

 

Bone Dry

Select the degree of dryness that you require.

 

 

Extra Dry

This ranges from Bone Dry for bath towels and

Cupboard Dry

bathrobes, through Cupboard Dry for items that will

be put away without ironing, to the programmes

 

Iron Dry

that leave the laundry suitable for ironing.

Medium Dry

 

 

 

Damp Dry

 

 

 

Fast Iron

The Fast Iron programme 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. The Fast Iron process

 

relaxes the creases in the fabric making ironing

 

quicker and easier.

Note: The sensor may not detect a small load of small articles. For small loads and separate items or pre-dried fabrics with low moisture content, use the timed programmes. Set the programme between 30 and 75 minutes depending on the load size and dryness required, and select high or low heat depending upon the fabric type.

If the sensor does not detect the item the dryer will only operate for 10 minutes before going into cooldown.

If the load is too large or too wet to tumble dry the dryer will automatically go into cooldown after 180 minutes.
