– Be careful to avoid sharp edges.
Wipe with a soft, damp cloth.
– Do not set up in a room that is susceptible to frost. Freezing water may cause damage.
Do not use harsh cleaning agents or solvents.
– If in doubt, have the appliance connected by a specialist.
Remove detergent and cleaning agent residue immediately.
– Do not lift the dryer by protruding parts (e.g. the door) - risk of breakage.
Some water may collect between the window and the seal during drying. This does not affect

Do not set up the dryer behind a door or sliding
door, as this may obstruct the dryer door or prevent
it from opening. This will prevent a potentially fatal
danger to children from locking themselves in.
Clean and level
Make sure that the air inlet
remains unobstructed
3. Clean the filter under running water or in the dishwasher.

The dryer is equipped with stainless steel moisture sensors. Moisture sensors measure how
damp the laundry is. A thin layer of limescale may build up on the moisture sensors after
prolonged use.
1. Open the door.
2. Clean the moisture sensors using a damp sponge with a rough surface.
– Prepare the dryer
see Frost protection.
– Transport the dryer in a vertical upright position.
Do not use steel wool or abrasive materials.
– Following transportation, do not use the dryer for two hours.
The dryer contains residual water;
this can flow out if the dryer is tilted.
Appliance must be switched off.

Optional accessories
(from after-sales service using order number, depending on model)
Washer-dryer stack connection set
The dryer can be placed on top of a suitable washing machine with the same width and depth to save
space. The dryer must be fastened to the washing machine using this connection set.
Same as WZ 11410, but with pull-out worktop.
Installation underneath the worktop
Instead of the appliance covering plate, you must have a metal cover fitted by a specialist.
For easier loading and unloading. The basket contained in the drawer can be used
to carry the laundry.
Normal noises
What to do if...
If you cannot rectify a fault yourself (e.g. switching off/on), please contact our after-sales service.
During drying, the compressor and the pump generate some noise which is entirely normal.
We will always find an appropriate solution and will avoid unnecessary visits by engineers. Trust
the expertise of the manufacturer and rest assured that the repair will be carried out by trained
service technicians using original spare parts. The contact details of your local after-sales service
can be found in the enclosed after-sales service directory, or by calling one of these numbers:
