Important Information - Siemens WT46Y729EE Instruction Manual


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. A blocked fluff filter
may impair the heat exchange process.
The fluff filters must therefore be cleaned after every drying cycle.
Rinse regularly under running water
When cleaning the fluff filter, make sure that no foreign material (down, filling material) enters
the air duct opening. If necessary, clean the drum beforehand with a vacuum cleaner.
If foreign material should still enter the air duct
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
and maintenance instructions, Page 3.
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 laundry items that produce a lot of fluff.
Woollens should be refreshed or dried using the woollens programme only.

The following "standard cottons programme" (identified with
cotton laundry and is most efficient in terms of its combined energy consumption for drying wet
cotton laundry.
