Warning: Risk of fire/Flammable materials

Read the instructions


Fire Hazard

●●Only dry fabrics that have been washed with water.

●●Do not use heat to dry articles containing foam rubber or similarly textured rubber–like materials, dry on ‘Air Dry’.

●●Do not stop a tumble clothes dryer before the end of the drying

cycle unless all items are removed and spread out in order to dissipate the heat.

●●A clothes dryer produces combustible lint; the lint filter must be cleaned before each drying cycle.

●●Failure to follow the warnings outlined in these user instructions can cause a fire hazard.

●●Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or personal injury.






WARNING! When using this appliance always exercise basic safety precautions



including the following:



Dryer use



The tumble dryer is intended only for drying textile material washed in water.



Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be placed in the dryer.



Damage to the dryer can result if the metal reinforcements come loose during drying.



If you wish to dry these items use a drying rack or place in a garment bag.



Check and remove all objects from pockets, eg lighters and matches.



Never dry rubber articles, or any plastic items or film, eg plastic lined tablecloths



and baby bibs.



Clothes should go through the cool down/airing phase in the final part of the cycle.



This ensures items are left at a temperature where they will not be damaged. If for



any reason the dryer is stopped before the cycle has finished, dry clothes should be



removed immediately and not left in the dryer. Clothes should be quickly spread out



flat to cool so heat can dissipate, not left bunched up, eg in a clothes basket.



This dryer has been designed for domestic use only, not for commercial applications,



such as massage/beauty clinics where there may be increased lint accumulation or



flammable materials in the atmosphere or load.



Do not operate this product without the lint filter in place or allow lint to accumulate



in or around the dryer.



This dryer is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced



physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge,



unless given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the dryer by a person



responsible for their safety.




●●Children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the dryer.

●●Unplug the machine from the power supply when it is not in use.

●●Do not swing on or put weight on the door.

●●Your dryer is designed to stop operating in the event of power outage. When power is resumed, the machine will remain off until the ‘Power’ button is pressed. To restart the dryer, press ‘Power’, select your drying cycle and touch .

●●Never attempt to repair the dryer yourself.

●●The only user-removable parts of the dryer are the lint filter, drying rack and reversible console. No other parts are designed to be removed by anyone other than a Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician.

●●For problems that cannot be solved from information in this User Guide, turn off and unplug your dryer and contact a Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician.

●●When disposing of the dryer, it is recommended that the door is removed to avoid children getting trapped inside, and that the electrical cable is cut off close to the dryer.


We do not recommend the use of extension cords or portable electrical outlet devices for safety reasons.


●●Accumulated lint in the dryer can become a fire hazard; it also reduces the efficiency of the dryer by causing longer drying times and increased power consumption.

●●Clean the lint filter before every load.

●●Ensure the area around the dryer is clear of lint.

●●At regular intervals have the interior of the dryer cleaned of any accumulated lint. This must be done by a Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician. This must be done when the dryer installation is changed from free standing or inverted, or vice versa.

●●The dryer exhaust ducting should be inspected and cleaned periodically to remove accumulated lint.

Spontaneous combustion





To reduce the risk of fire in a tumble dryer the following should be observed:



Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable oil or cooking oil are a fire



hazard and should not be placed in a tumble dryer.



Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to heat sources



such as a tumble dryer. The items become warm causing an oxidation reaction in the



oil. This 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 creating a fire hazard.



If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable oil, 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 fire



hazard. The cool down cycle of the dryer should be used to reduce the temperature



of these items. They should not be removed from the tumble dryer and piled or



stacked while hot.



Items that have previously been cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with



flammable liquids or solids, eg petrol/gasoline, kerosene, dry cleaning solvents,



vegetable or cooking oil, acetone, denatured alcohol, some brands of spot removers,



turpentine, waxes and wax removers or other flammable or explosive substances



should not be placed in a tumble dryer.





●●Do not dry unwashed items in the tumble dryer.

●●The dryer is not to be used if industrial chemicals have been used for cleaning.

●●Fabric Softeners or similar products should not be used in a tumble dryer to eliminate the effects of static electricity, unless this practice is specifically recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener product.

●●Rubber backed articles, foam rubber (latex foam), clothes or pillows fitted with foam rubber pads, fibreglass, shoes containing rubber, shower caps, babies waterproof napkin covers and waterproof textiles should not be dried in the dryer. These materials can when heated produce fire by spontaneous combustion.

●●The maximum mass of dry textiles depends on your model. DE7060P and DE7060G models are rated at 7kg. Do not overload your dryer.



Please read and follow the ‘Safety and warnings’ and ‘Installation instructions’ sections carefully before using your dryer!


Please check you received the following accessories with your Fisher & Paykel dryer. You will find them inside the drum:

●●1 x Drying rack

●●1 x Installation guide/User guide

●●1 x Wall mounting kit

●●1 x Duct adapter


To ensure the best performance from your new dryer please follow the instructions below.

Removing the packaging

1Remove the outer packaging (including the polystyrene packer and plastic wrapping). All packaging must be removed prior to use.


●●Ensure packaging materials are kept out of reach of children.

●●Please help protect the environment and dispose of the packaging from around the dryer in an environmentally friendly manner.

2Tilt the dryer backwards and ‘walk’ it off the base one foot at a time. Not doing so may cause damage to your floor and dryer.

3Remove all packaging and accessories from inside the drum and ensure you remove protective covers from the door and console.




The dryer must be installed in a well-ventilated, dust-



free environment.


The dryer must not be installed on any textured floor



coverings (eg carpet, rugs).


Do not install the dryer behind a lockable door, sliding



door, or behind a door where the hinge is on the


opposite side to that of the dryer in such a way that the


full opening of the door is inhibited. Ensure the dryer


door can always be opened fully.


Do not install the dryer outside, in a damp place, where



there is a risk of freezing, where it may be rained on, in


direct sunlight or close to a source of heat.

●●Do not place your dryer on top of its power cable.




Correct installation is very important for all dryers to ensure maximum efficiency and safety.


Never run the dryer unless the airflow system is free from obstruction.

There must be adequate ventilation to avoid the back flow of gases into the room from appliances burning fuels, including open fires, when operating the dryer.

Exhaust air must not be discharged into a flue which is used for exhausting fumes from appliances burning gas or other fuels.

External venting

Your dryer has been designed to be vented outside to provide the following advantages:

●●Ensures optimum efficiency by preventing recirculation of moist air.

●●Eliminates condensation on walls and ceilings.

●●Reduces the chance of lint being sucked into the dryer.

●●Prevents lint and other fine particles being blown into the room.

All external venting systems should be:

●●Made from 100mm diameter flexible foil sleeved with a galvanised metal pipe where the vent system goes through the wall, or 100mm diameter galvanised metal piping.

●●Exhausted outside and not into another confined space, eg the roof cavity of a house.

●●Fitted with a vent cap outside to stop rain water entering the dryer exhaust system.

●●Angled to avoid condensation running back into the dryer.

●●The vent system should be a maximum of 2 metres with no more than three 90 bends.

●●Vent systems over 2 metres long require special installation. Contact a Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician.

Internal venting

The dryer is set up in the factory for front venting. If front venting is used there must be adequate ventilation to avoid the build up of moisture in the room, which can affect the performance of the dryer. Venting must comply with local by-laws and regulations.



Installation options

There are two different ways your dryer can be positioned. Freestanding or inverted and mounted on a wall.

Free standing

The dryer stands on the floor and can easily be moved into position.

1Move the dryer into the desired position. Do not lift the dryer by the top panel.

2Have a minimum clearance on all sides of at least 20mm.

3Have a minimum clearance at the rear of 75mm. The spacers from the accessory wall mounting kit can be used to set this distance.

4Install the dryer on a stable and level floor.

Free standing venting options

Note: the vent system should be less than two metres long with no more than three 90 bends.

Before a rear venting option is installed the dryer must be changed from the front venting factory setup. Remove the outlet grille from the front left-hand side and replace with the outlet cover from the rear left-hand side. These covers should be gently pried at the sides to prevent damage.

External venting

The dryer is vented with a kit that can be positioned to remove air to the side.

The dryer is vented directly through the wall using a ducting kit in combination with the duct adaptor supplied with the dryer.

The dryer is vented through a window using a ducting kit in combination with the duct adaptor supplied with the dryer. This requires the dryer to be a minimum distance of 140mm from the wall to ensure the ducting is not restricted with tight bends or can be crushed.

Internal venting

Front venting is the only recommended option for venting into the room. The dryer is set up for front venting when it leaves the factory.

Note: where possible all efforts should be made to vent the dryer externally to avoid moisture build up around the dryer.
