!Read these instructions carefully: the following pages contain
important information on installation and useful suggestions for operating the appliance.
To ensure that the condenser dryer functions efficiently, the following routine maintenance procedures must be carried out: Fluff filter – CLEAN off any fluff build-up on the filter after each drying cycle. Step 1 Open the dryer door by pressing it as shown in the picture.
Failure to clean the filter after each drying cycle can undermine drying performance as the machine takes longer to dry and thus consumes more energy. [. . . ] Note: If you have a power cut, switch off the power or remove the plug. When power is restored, plug in the machine, press and hold the ON/OFF button until the dryer reactivates, then press Start/Pause button.
• Check the symbols on the care labels of the various garments to verify whether the garments can be safely tumble dried. • Close zips and hooks and fasten belts and strings without tightening them. • Wring out garments to remove the maximum amount of water possible. The following values indicate the weight of dry garments: Natural fibres: maximum 8 kg Synthetic fibres: maximum 3 kg !Do not overload the dryer as this may result is reduced drying performance. Typical weights Note: 1 kg = 1000 g

Always check the care labels, especially when placing garments in the tumble dryer for the first time. Below are the most commonly used symbols: May be tumble dried. Tumble dry – low heat.
Items not suitable for tumble drying: • Items containing rubber parts or similar materials, or plastic film covering (pillows, cushions or PVC sports jackets), any type of inflammable object or objects containing inflammable substances (used towels containing hairspray). • Items marked with the ITLC symbol (“Special garments”) , which may be washed using special household products. • Large bulky items (duvets, sleeping bags, pillows, cushions, large bedcovers, etc. ) that expand when dried and hamper air circulation inside the tumble dryer.
When mixing synthetic fibres with cotton garments, the latter may still be damp at the end of the drying cycle. If this happens, simply put them through a short drying cycle.
Blankets and bedcovers: acrylic items (Acilian, Courtelle, Orion, Dralon) must be dried with great care at low heat. Creased or pleated garments: read the drying instructions supplied by the manufacturer. Remove the maximum amount of starch solution possible before placing these items in the dryer. Do not over-dry: starch turns powdery leaving garments limp – this defeats its purpose.
• Amount of laundry: single items and small loads may take longer to dry. • Drying: if items are to be ironed, they can be removed from the dryer while still slightly damp. • Temperature of the room: the lower the temperature of the room, the longer it will take for the dryer to dry clothing. • Bulk: certain bulky items require special care during the drying process. We suggest removing these items and replacing them in the dryer once they have been shaken out: repeat this procedure several times during the course of the drying cycle. All fabrics contain natural dampness which helps to keep them soft and fluffy. The drying times provided refer to the automatic Cupboard dry programmes. The Timed drying settings are also indicated to enable you to select the most suitable timed option.
