Drying tips
– To ensure an even result, sort the laundry by fabric type and drying programme.
– Always dry very small fabrics (e.g. baby socks) together with
large items of laundry (e.g. towels).
Important Information
– Close zips, hooks and eyelets, and button up covers.
Tie fabric belts, apron strings, etc. together
– Do not over-dry easy-care laundry

– Knitted fabrics (e.g. T-shirts, jerseys) often shrink slightly the first time they are tumble-dried.
Never operate the dryer without the fluff filters and without filter in condensate container.
Do not use the Cupboard Dry Extra programme.
– The drying of starched laundry should be limited.
Starch leaves behind a coating that
impairs drying.
– When washing laundry that is to be tumble-dried afterwards, use the correct amount of fabric
softener as specified in the manufacturer's instructions.
Fluff filters
– For pre-dried, multi-layered fabrics or small, individual items of laundry, use the Timed
programme. Also suitable for subsequent drying.
During drying, fluff and hair from the laundry is trapped by the fluff filter. Blocked fluff filters
may impair the heat exchange process.
Environmental protection/energy-saving tips
The fluff filters must therefore be cleaned after every drying cycle. Rinse regularly under
