Empty water tank - Clean door filter - Clean the condenser unit Refer to the troubleshooting section: Failure: Call after sales service.

FIRST TIME USE
Remove all the tapes used to hold items on the machine. Before you use it, clean the inside of the drum to remove any dust that could have accumulated during transport. Slight odour or vapour 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 dryers's water tank or to your domestic drainage system. The dryer must be installed in a room with a temperature ranging between 5C and 35C to ensure proper operation.

OPENING THE DOOR DURING THE CYCLE
Laundry can be checked while the drying cycle runs and any garments already dry can be removed, while drying continues for the remaining items. After closing the door, press the "Start/Pause" button to resume machine operation.

DAILY USE
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.
Refer to the Care & Maintenance section.
1. Plug the dryer into the power supply socket. 2. Open the door and load garments; always refer to instructions on
clothing labels and the max loads indicated in the programme section. Empty pockets. Make sure garments do not get caught between the door and/or the door filter. Do not load items that are dripping wet. Do not tumble dry large, very bulky items. 3. Close the door. 4. Press the "On/Off" button. 5. Select the most suitable programme for the type of fabric in that load. 6. Select the options, if necessary. 7. Press the "Start/Pause" button to begin drying. 8. At the end of the drying cycle, a buzzer will beep. An indicator on the control panel signals the end of the cycle. Pull the load out immediately to prevent the formation of creases on laundry. 9. Turn the machine off by pressing the "On/Off" button, open the door and pull the clothing out. If the machine is not switched off manually, after about a quarter of an hour from the end of the cycle , the appliance turns off automatically to save energy. Note that some programme/option accords with "Crease Care" system. This means that for some hours, after the end of the drying cycle, the drum rotates at regular intervals to prevent the formation of creases. In case of power failure, it is necessary to press the "Start/Pause" button to restart the cycle.

TRANSPORT AND HANDLING
Never lift the dryer by holding on to its top side. 1. Unplug the dryer 2. Remove the water from the water tank completely. 3. Make sure that door and water tank are properly closed. 4. If the drain hose is connected to your drainage system, re-connect
it to the back of the dryer (see "Installation" section in the Safety Instructions).
CARE LABEL

May be tumble dried.
Do not tumble dry.
Tumble dry  high heat.
Tumble dry  low heat.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
WARNING: unplug the dryer during the cleaning and maintenance procedures.
Emptying the water tank after each cycle (see Fig. A).
Pull the container out of the dryer and empty it into a sink or other suitable drain, then place it back properly. Do not use the dryer without having inserted the container back in place.
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.
Do not use the dryer without having reinserted the filter 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 for 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.

EN
Cleaning the tumble dryer
 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.
