HINTS AND TIPS Respect the care labels of your laundry; make sure that it is appropriate for being treated in a dryer. CARE LABELS The dots indicate the temperature degree for drying the laundry.
EMPTY ALL POCKETS Objects like coins or keys can damage your laundry as well as the drum.
Normal temperature Reduced temperature Do not tumble dry
SAVING TIPS Always dry a full load; this optimizes the relative energy consumption. The maximum load sizes for the various programmes are indicated in the programme chart.
To reduce the drying time, make sure that the laundry is spun with the maximum possible spin speed of the wash programme. This reduces the moisture content in the laundry.
Data can differ in your home, mainly depending on the moisture content of the laundry load.

*Reference programmes for Energy Label / Regulation 392/2012 / EU Values are based on the default programme setting, with clean door and bottom filter. For consumer tests, the door filter and bottom filter need to be cleaned after each cycle.
The energy consumption and drying time may differ from the values above. They depend on the operation conditions in your home (such as voltage fluctuation, mixture of textiles, humidity of the textiles after spinning, load volume). The values are determined according to European Norm 61121 and refer to the default programme setting; changing the setting also impacts the consumption data.
