Important information ...
Your dryer is designed to be particularly energy efficient. Its technical features include
a refrigeration circuit, which uses energy efficiently in a similar way to a refrigerator.
The dryer's heat exchanger is cleaned automatically during drying.
The fluff filters and filter in the condensate container must be cleaned regularly.
Never operate the dryer without the fluff filters and without filter in condensate container!
During drying, fluff and hair from the laundry is trapped by the fluff filter. Blocked fluff filters may impair the heat exchange
The fluff filters must therefore be cleaned after every drying cycle. Rinse regularly under running water a page 4/12.
Filter in the condensate container
The filter in the condensate container cleans the condensation. This condensation is required for the automatic cleaning
process. The filter should be cleaned regularly under running water. Empty the condensate container before cleaning the
filter a page 4,8/12.
Do not dry any fabrics that have come into contact with solvents, oil, wax, grease or paint: e.g. hair styling products, nail
varnish remover, stain remover, cleaning solvent etc.
Empty all pockets.
Do not dry non-breathable fabrics.
Avoid drying items that produce a lot of fluff.
Woollens should be refreshed only, using the woollens programme.
