A slight odor or vapor may be found if you open the door during its first use, this is normal and should only last a few minutes. Make sure that the water tank is correctly inserted. Make sure that the drain hose on the back of the dryer is properly connected, either to the dryer’s water tank or to your domestic drainage system. The dryer must be installed in a room with a temperature ranging between 5°C and 35°C to ensure proper operation.

Doing this will keep your machine working at its BEST:

  • remember to empty your water tank after each drying cycle.
  • remember to clean your condenser unit regularly (monthly).
  • remember to clean your filter after each drying cycle.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
WARNING: Unplug the dryer during the cleaning and maintenance procedures.

Hotpoint H3 D91GS Freestanding Tumble Dryer - icon 9 Emptying the water tank after each cycle (see Fig. A).

Hotpoint H3 D91GS Freestanding Tumble Dryer - icon 10 Cleaning the door filter after each cycle (see Fig. B).
Pull the filter out and clean it by removing the lint from the filter surface under running water or using a vacuum cleaner. For optimal performance, dry up the filter before inserting it back in place.

Remove the door filter as described below:

  1. Open the door and pull the filter upwards.
  2. Open the filter and remove the lint from all its parts. Replace the filter correctly making sure it is fully seated.

The filter is an essential part of drying. It is intended to collect the lint formed during the drying process. If the filter is clogged, the air flow inside the dryer can become seriously affected: this will increase the drying time and energy consumption and could damage the dryer. If this procedure is not carried out properly, the dryer may not start.

Cleaning the condenser unit (see Fig. C).
Remove the condenser unit regularly (monthly) and clean off any fluff deposits from the plates by running cold water along its rear end. The light on after several cycles is just a  reminder to carry on this activity periodically.

Removing the condenser:

  1. Open the condenser cover, unlock the three catches by turning them 90° anticlockwise.
  2. Pull on the grip to remove the condenser.
  3. Clean the surface of the seals.
  4. Replace the unit with the arrows pointing upwards, while making sure that the catches are securely fixed.

Before using the appliance carefully read the Safety Instructions.

  • The external metal, plastic and rubber parts can be cleaned with a damp cloth.
  • Clean the front air intake grille regularly (every 6 months) with a vacuum cleaner to remove any lint, fluff or dust deposits. Furthermore, remove any lint deposits from the front part of the condenser and from the filter area, using a vacuum cleaner every so often.
  • Do not use solvents or abrasives.
