7 Energy-saving tips Energy-savi ng ti ps Spin the laundry before drying. The

drier the laundry, the shorter the programme will be, in turn reducing energy consumption.

Load the appliance with the maximum loads permitted for the programmes.

Note: If the maximum load is exceeded, this extends the programme duration and increases energy consumption.

Operate the appliance in a ventilated room and make sure that the air inlet on the appliance is unobstructed so that air exchange can take place unhindered.

Regularly remove the fluff from the appliance. If there is fluff in the appliance, this extends the programme duration and increases energy consumption.

If you do not perform any actions on the appliance for an extended period before the programme starts or once the programme has ended, the appliance will automatically switch to energy-saving mode. The display and indicator lights go out after a few minutes and A Start/Reload flashes. To end energy-saving mode, all you need to do is perform an action on the appliance, such as opening and closing the door.

If you do not perform any actions on the appliance for an extended period when it is in energy-saving mode, the appliance automatically switches itself off.

Note: If Wi-Fi is activated, the appliance will not switch itself off automatically.

Z Laundry LaundryPreparing laundry

:Warning Risk of explosions/fire! Certain objects may ignite when drying is in progress, or even cause the appliance to catch fire or explode. Remove any lighters or matches from pockets on items of clothing.

Caution! Risk of damage to the drum and laundry Leaving objects in the pockets of your clothing can cause damage to the drum and laundry when the appliance is in operation. Remove all objects (e.g. metal items) from clothing pockets.

Prepare the laundry as follows:

Tie cloth belts, apron strings, etc. together or use a laundry bag.

Close zips, hooks, eyelets and buttons. Button up large items of laundry, such as covers.

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

Use timed programmes for single items.

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

Do not overdry easy-care laundry. This leads to increased creasing of your laundry.

Some detergents and care products, e.g. starch or softeners, contain particles that may accumulate on the moisture sensor. This may impair the sensor's performance and, in turn, 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 60.

Sorting laundry

Note: Load the laundry item by item into the appliance. For more effective drying, do not stuff an entire bundle of laundry into the dryer at once.

Caution! Risk of material damage to the dryer or laundry Laundry that is unsuitable for tumble- drying may damage the appliance and the laundry when it is dried. Before you dry it, sort the laundry according to the information given on the care label:

c Suitable for tumble drying a Dry at normal temperature ` Dry at low temperature b Do not tumble-dry

32

Operating the appliance en

When sorting the laundry to be dried, take the following points into account:

To achieve an even drying result, only dry laundry of the same type of fabric and texture together. If you dry thin, thick and multi- layered fabrics together, they will dry to differing degrees.

Use the fabric descriptions given for the individual drying programmes to help you choose the most appropriate programme. ~ "Overview of programmes" on page 27 ~ "Drying with the basket for woollens" on page 48

Note: You can select a timed programme to add extra drying time for laundry that is still damp.

Caution! Risk of material damage to the appliance and laundry Do not tumble-dry the following items or fabrics in the appliance: Laundry contaminated with solvents,

wax or grease. Unwashed items. Items made from non-breathable

fabrics (e.g. rubber-coated). Items made from delicate fabrics,

such as silk and curtains made of synthetic material.
