It is recommended that, for your convenience, the
machine is positioned close to your washing
Whilst drying, the tumble dryer will expel a certain
amount of warm, very moist air, and this should be
removed from the room as quickly as possible to
prevent condensation. In an extremely well ventilated
room or close to an open window, this may occur
However, in general, it is better to carry the dryer's
exhaust outside via a 100 mm diameter flexible hose
(supplied with the machine); ending either
temporarily at an open window, or permanently at a
fixed ventilation grille, fitted to an exterior wall or
The tumble dryer must be installed in a clean place,
where dirt does not build up.
Make sure there are no obstructing items or material
near the air-intake louvres provided at the back (e.g.
paper, rags etc.).
To keep vibration and noise to a minimum when the
dryer is in use, it should be placed on a firm, level
Once in its permanent operating position, check that
the dryer is absolutely level with the aid of a spirit
level. If it is not, raise or lower the two adjustable
feet at the front of the machine until it is.
The feet must never be removed.
Do not restrict the floor clearance through deep-
pile carpets, strips of wood or similar. This might
cause heat build-up which would interfere with
the operation of the appliance.
When operating the tumble dryer, the room
temperature must not exceed 35°C, as it may affect
the performance of the appliance.
Fitting the vent hose
To simplify the installation, there is a choice of vent
outlets: one at the back, the others in the left and
Connect the hose to whichever is the more
convenient by pulling the ring nut (A) from the vent
outlet at the back, screwing it on to the hose and
pushing it firmly back into place.
The unused vents should now be sealed with the
special snap covers provided.
