programme. Also suitable for subsequent drying.
Environmental protection/energy-saving tips
– Before drying, spin the laundry thoroughly in the washing machine
speed, the shorter the drying time will be, thus less energy is consumed. Also spin easy-care

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.
Fluff filters
During drying, fluff and hair from the laundry is trapped by the fluff filter. Blocked fluff filters
may impair the heat exchange process.
The fluff filters must therefore be cleaned after every drying cycle. Rinse regularly under
running water
page 4.
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
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.
