Energy-saving tips

Spin the laundry before drying. The drier the laundry, the shorter the drying time will be, thus consuming less energy.

Load the dryer with the maximum load. Note: Do not exceed the maximum load for the programs, as this prolongs the drying time and increases energy consumption.

Ventilate the room and keep the air inlet on the dryer free to ensure air exchange.

Clean the fluff filter after each drying cycle. If the fluff filter is dirty, the drying time is prolonged and energy consumption is increased.

Energy saving mode: If the dryer is not operated for a prolonged period, it automatically switches off before the program starts and when the program has ended to save energy. The display panel and indicator lamps go off after a few minutes and the Start button flashes. To activate the lighting, press any button, open or close the dryer door or turn the program selector.

) Dispose of packaging in an environmentally-responsible manner. This appliance is labelled in accordance with European Directive 2012/19/EU concerning used electrical and electronic appliances (waste electrical and electronic equipment - WEEE). The guideline determines the framework for the return and recycling of used appliances as applicable throughout the EU.

Z Laundry LaundryPreparing the laundry

:Warning Risk of explosion/fire! Remove any cigarette lighters and matches from pockets.

Caution! The dryer drum and fabrics could be damaged. Remove all objects from pockets and observe the following information: Tie cloth belts, apron strings, etc.

together or use a laundry bag. Close zips, hooks and eyelets and

buttons. Button up large items of laundry, such as covers.

Remove any metal objects, such as paper clips, from pockets.

To ensure a consistent drying result, sort laundry by fabric type and drying programme.

Always dry very small items of laundry, e.g. babies' socks, together with large items such as towels.

Knitted fabrics such as T-shirts and jerseys often shrink the first time they are tumble-dried. Use a gentle programme.

Do not overdry easy-care laundry. This increases creasing of the laundry.

Use timed programmes for single garments.

Some detergents and care products, e.g. starch or softeners, contain particles which may be deposited on the moisture sensor. This may impair the sensor function and in consequence the drying result. Notes When washing laundry to be

tumble-dried, use the correct amount of detergent and care products as specified in the manufacturer's instructions.

Clean the moisture sensor regularly ~ Page 31.

Sorting washing according to: c Suitable for tumble drying a Dry at normal temperature ` Dry at low temperature b Do not tumble-dry

Note: Do not load laundry from the washing machine directly into the tumble dryer. Sort the spun laundry before placing it in the dryer drum.

If you dry thin, thick and multi-layer fabrics together, they will dry to differing degrees. To achieve an even drying result, you should therefore only dry together laundry of the same type of fabric and structure. If you feel that the laundry is still too damp, you can select a timed programme for subsequent drying ~ Page 23.

Caution! Possibility of material damage to the dryer or laundry.

Do not tumble-dry the following fabrics: Laundry contaminated with oil. Unwashed fabrics. Non-breathable fabrics (e.g. rubber-

coated). Easily damaged fabrics such as silk,

synthetic curtains.

Removing laundry and switching off the dryer

1. Remove the laundry. 2. Turn the programme selector to the

"off" position.

Emptying the condensate container By default, the condensation from the appliance runs into the condensation container. Alternatively, you have the option of discharging the condensation water* supplied depending on the model. If you choose to discharge the condensation water into the waste-water system, you will not need to empty the condensation container during the drying programme or after each time you use the dryer.

1. Pull out the condensate container horizontally.

* into the waste-water system via a drain hose

2. Pour out the condensation water.

Caution! Dirty condensation water may be harmful to your health and cause material damage. Condensation water is not suitable for drinking and may be contaminated with fluff. Do not drink the condensation water or reuse it.

3. Push in the condensate container until you feel it lock back into place in the dryer.

Clean the fluff filter

Note: During drying, fluff and hair from the laundry is trapped by the fluff filter. If the fluff filter is blocked or dirty, this reduces the flow of air, which prevents the dryer from achieving its maximum performance. Clean fluff filters also reduce energy consumption and the drying time.

Clean the fluff filter after each drying cycle:

1. Open the dryer door and remove all fluff from the door.

2. Pull out the two-part fluff filter.

3. Remove the fluff from the recess in the fluff filter.

Note: Ensure that no fluff falls into the open shaft.

4. Pull apart the two-part fluff filter.

> Noises Noi ses ote: During drying, particularly in the initial phase, operation of the appliance results in noise from the compressor and pump. This is perfectly normal and does not impair proper functioning of the appliance.

From time to time, the compressor in the dryer generates a humming noise. However, the volume may vary depending on the programme and progress of the drying process.

Every now and then, the compressor is ventilated. This creates a whirring noise.

The condensation is pumped into the condensate container by a pump. This generates pumping noises.

D Cleaning Cl eani ng leaning the dryer and the control panel

:Warning Risk of death! There is a risk of electric shock as the dryer is operated with electricity. Disconnect the dryer from the mains before cleaning.

Clean the dryer using only water and a soft, damp cloth. Remove all detergent residue, spray residue or other residues immediately. Do not use cleaning agents or agents for pre-treating laundry (e.g. prewash sprays, stain removers). Do not use high-pressure cleaners or steam jet cleaners to clean your appliance.

Cleaning the moisture sensor

Note: The dryer is equipped with a stainless-steel moisture sensor. The moisture sensor measures how damp the laundry is. After long periods of usage the moisture sensor may become covered by a fine layer of limescale or residues of detergents and care products. Such residues must be removed regularly as the sensor function and in consequence the drying result may be impaired.

Open the door and clean the moisture sensor with a coarse sponge.

Caution! Moisture sensor may be damaged. Do not clean moisture sensors with abrasives and steel wool.

Cleaning the EasyClean filter When appears in the display panel, clean the EasyClean filter as follows:

1. First clean the fluff filter ~ Page 28. 2. Close the door of the dryer. 3. Open the maintenance flap on the

heat exchanger. 4. Release the levers on the EasyClean

filter. 5. Use the grip handle to pull the

EasyClean filter out.

6. Now take off the filter mat. 7. Wash out the filter mat by hand

using clean water. Notes If the filter mat is covered with

stubborn dirt, you can also remove this carefully using a vacuum cleaner.

Do not use cleaning agents.

8. Dry the filter mat by squeezing the water out. Note: Only use the filter mat if it is clean and dry.

en Cleaning

9. Put the filter mat back on.

Note: Ensure that the filter mat is not misshapen, torn or clogged. Position the filter mat as shown above.

10.Check how dirty the dryer's heat exchanger is before putting the EasyClean filter back in. If it is very dirty, use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to clean it carefully from top to bottom.

Note: Take care not to bend or damage the fins on the heat exchanger when cleaning it. Caution! Risk of injury. You could cut yourself on the fins of the heat exchanger. Do not touch these with your hands.

11.Slide the EasyClean filter in and make sure it clicks into place.

12.Close the maintenance flap.

13.Switch the dryer off. You have now cleaned the EasyClean filter.

Note: If your filter mat is damaged, you can order a new one from the after- sales service using part number: 12007650. Contact information for all countries can be found on the enclosed after-sales service list.

The dryer will not start. Start button selected? Mains plug plugged in or fuse/circuit breaker checked? Programme selected? Select a programme. Dryer door open? Close the door. Childproof lock activated? Deactivate the childproof lock. "Ready in" time selected? Programme starts after a delay.

Creasing. Creasing occurs when you have exceeded the maximum load or selected the wrong programme for the type of fabric. All the required information can be found in the programme table.

Remove clothes immediately after drying; creasing may occur if they are left in the drum.

Water is leaking out. Not a fault; the dryer may be positioned on an incline. Level the dryer.

Programme duration dis- played changes during drying.

Not a fault. The moisture sensors detect the remaining moisture in the load and adjust the programme length accordingly (except timed programmes).

Laundry is not dried cor- rectly or is still too damp.

After the end of the programme, warm laundry feels damper than it actually is. Spread the laundry out and allow the heat to disperse.

Fine tune the dryness level. This extends the drying time but does not increase the temperature. Your laundry will become drier ~ Page 25.

Select a programme with a longer drying time or increase the dryness level. This does not increase the temperature.

Select a timed programme to add extra drying time for laundry that is still damp ~ Page 23.

Select timed program for a small load and individual items of laundry. If you have exceeded the maximum load for the programme, the laundry

may not be dried properly. Clean the moisture sensor in the drum. The sensor may become covered in

a fine layer of limescale or detergent and care product residue, which then impairs its performance. This prevents your laundry from being dried prop- erly ~ Page 31.

Drying has stopped as a result of a power cut, because the condensation container is full or because the maximum drying time has been exceeded.

Note: See also the laundry tips ~ Page 22.

en Faults and what to do about them

Note: If you cannot rectify the fault yourself by turning the dryer off and then on again, please contact our after-sales service.

Drying time too long? The fluff filter or the EasyClean filter may be dirty, which will make the dry- ing time longer. Clean the fluff filter or the EasyClean filter.

If the air inlet on the dryer is blocked or not freely accessible, this may increase the drying time. Make sure that the air inlet remains unobstructed.

The optimum ambient temperature for drying is between 15 C and 30 C. Outside of this range, the drying time may increase.

Insufficient air circulation in the room may increase the drying time. Venti- late the room.

Display panel goes out and Start button flashes.

Not a fault. Energy saving mode is active ~ Page 12.

Humidity in the room is increasing.

Not a fault. Make sure the room is adequately ventilated.

Power failure. The drying programme is stopped. Remove the laundry and spread it out, or restart the programme.

Unusual noises when dry- ing.

Not a fault; see also ~ Page 30.

The dryer feels cold despite drying.
