MACHINE OPERATION Additional information (including troubleshooting and service) can be found in the individual chapters of the Instructions for use. Sort laundry according to care symbols Do not tumble dry Suitable for tumble drying – at low temperatures
Sort laundry by: Material thickness: whenever there is greater load than the dryer can handle, separate laundry according to weight (e.g. dry towels and thin underwear separately). Type of material: cotton (linen); synthetic textiles (easy care). Degree of drying: cupboard dry, iron dry etc. Do not tumble dry: nylon stockings, delicate embroidery, fabrics with metallic decorations.
Suitable for tumble drying
Selecting options (if available)
Check that all fastenings are closed and that pockets are empty. Please ensure that there are no cigarette lighters in the laundry. Turn laundry inside out.
Place laundry loosely in the drum to achieve equal drying throughout. Then close the door.
Select the drying programme required by turning the programme selector knob (for information, refer to programme table). If you do not start the programme soon after having made your choice, the dryer will switch off after a few minutes. To switch the dryer on again turn the programme selector knob to “Off” (“0”) and afterwards to the desired programme. Select the option required by pressing the corresponding button. The indicator lamp above the relevant button lights up to confirm your selection. A fast blinking lamp indicates a wrong selection is made (incompatible options). Press the button again to cancel the option. The drying programme is started by pressing the “Start (Pause)” button. The relevant indicator lamp lights up. Changing programme selection: If the programme selected is changed during drying, the dryer stops. The “Start (Pause)” indicator lamp flashes. To operate the new programme, press the “Start (Pause)” button again. Interrupting programme: To interrupt a drying cycle, press the “Start (Pause)” button and open the door. Wait at least 5 minutes, to allow the laundry to cool down, before you unload the dryer. For your safety the drying cycle stops automatically if you open the door. To restart, after door opening, close the door and press the “Start (Pause)” button again. Warning: Never stop a tumble dryer before the end of the drying cycle, unless all items are quickly removed and spread out so that the heat is dissipated.
Programme end – unloading dryer
The final part of a drying cycle occurs without heat (cool down cycle) to ensure that the items reach a lower temperature to avoid wrinkling. End: Take the laundry out of the dryer. The drying process is complete. Anticrease: If the laundry is not removed at the end of the drying cycle, an automatic anticrease cycle will operate for maximum 15 min (by choosing the option “Anticrease” this time can be extended up to 12 hours). The drum rotates to prevent the laundry from creasing. After the end of the “Anticrease” the dryer will switch off after a short time, to save energy.
Switching dryer off
Set the programme selector knob to “Off” (“0”).
Cleaning the lint filter after every cycle: open door, pull lint filter up and out of machine and open it. Brush lint using a soft brush or your fingertips. Close door filter and push firmly back into place. Emptying water container: pull container out by the handle and empty. Replace the container when empty by pushing it completely back into place. Please note: Only use additives/plastic items specified as dryer safe and rinse items that have been treated with stain remover thoroughly in plenty of water before drying. Never dry rubber objects or objects stained with vegetable oils in the dryer. The Manufacturer is not liable for any damage to laundry resulting from inadequate or incorrect fabric care instructions which have been provided with the garment or article. Power consumption: in off-mode 0.065 W / in left on-mode 0.065 W.

Quick Reference Guide
Indicator lamps and Options Programme selector knob
The drying programme is selected by turning this knob. The “Start (Pause)” indicator lamp flashes.
The “Eco monitor” gives you a rough feedback about the energy consumption of the selected programme. This function will no work for a time based programme. As soon as you turn the programme selector to any humidity steared programme, the “Eco monitor” lamps will indicate the expected energy consumption.
“Start (Pause)” button The drying programme is started by pressing this button. The indicator lamp lights up.
Filter The indicator lamp lights up when the filter and/or heat exchanger including housing needs to be cleaned. Clean the filter at the end of every drying cycle.
The three indicators show the degree of consumption: the less energy your programme setting is forecasted to consume, the less indicators will light up. This depends on the programme, initial moisture and options selected, and also on the size of the load. For that reason, the forecasted degree of energy consumption may adapt when the tumble dryer detects the load size.
Water container The indicator lamp lights up when the water container needs to be emptied. The drying cycle is automatically interrupted. Empty the container and restart the drying programme. Empty the water container after every drying cycle
End The drying programme is finished.
Clean heat exchanger
Please unload the dryer.
The Led lights up after 30 cycles when the heat exchanger needs to be cleaned. Clean the heat exchanger.
Overdry protection / 6th Sense The indicator lights up when a humidity controlled programme is selected, to indicate the activated protection function.
“Remaining time” display Depending on the programme selected a default drying time is displayed. After start of cycle the time displayed is corrected depending on the volume, type and moisture of the laundry. The drying time specified is a calculated value which will be updated during the drying cycle. The flashing lines indicate that the calculation is running. The remaining time will be updated.
By selecting this option you can adjust the dryness level of the laundry. After the selection of the desired programme you can choose the dryness level by pressing the button. Pressing 1 time you select a more dry level or Pressing 2 times you select a less dry level or Pressing 3 times you select again normal dry level.
This option can be chosen to reduce wrinkling, when the laundry is not unloaded directly after end of the cycle. The drum turns from time to time for maximum 12 hours. It can be interrupted at any time by switching off the dryer. This option deactivates the “Buzzer” function, if it is activated.
Finish in With this function you can postpone your programme to complete at a later time: press the button to select in how many hours the programme shall be finished. · Thus, it allows you to have your laundry ready at a particular time and to profit from more favorable energy rates during the night, for example. · The “Finish in” function can be selected in full hour time segments (1 to 24 h). When you press the button, the shortest possible time will be displayed; keep on pressing the button to loop through all the available times. To remove it again, keep on pressing the button until you see the value “off” “0” position. · When you have selected the desired “Finish in” time, press “Start” – the countdown will begin. · During the countdown, you can still modify the option setting (select or deselect options).

Key lock For child protection reasons, this option can be used to lock all functions of the user interface. To activate this option, the button needs to be pressed for 3 seconds, until the “key” symbol at the display appears. To deactivate this option, press the button until the “key” symbol disappears. The key lock function is still active even when the selector knob is turned to “off” “0” position or the door is opened. The function has to be deactivated.
· Sometimes the programme may finish before the selected “Finish in” time has expired (e.g. for small loads). In this case, the dryer will tumble the laundry regularly to keep it fresh, until the selected “Finish in” time has expired. During tumbling, the display will show an animation. The tumbling phase can be stopped at any time either by pressing any button, by rotating the programme selector or by opening the door.
Dry time adjustment Turn the programme selector knob to “Drying Time” position. Press the button “Drying time” to select the duration of cycle in ten minutes steps up to 120 minutes.
Gentle Selecting this option will reduce the drying temperature. This option cannot be selected when the option “Rapid” is selected.
Rapid Selecting this 9option reduces the drying time. This option should only be selected for cotton programmes, with a maximum load of 3.5 kg. The garments shall have similar size and thickness.
