Care and cleaning
You must DISCONNECT the appliance from the
electricity supply, before you can carry out any
cleaning or maintenance work.
Use only soap and water and then dry thoroughly.
Important: do not use methylated spirit, dilutents
or similar products.
Cleaning the door
Periodically clean the interior part of the door to
remove any fluff from the seals around the filter.
Accurate cleaning ensures correct drying.
Cleaning the filters
Your dryer will only function well if the filters
are clean. The filters collect all the fluff which
accumulates during drying and they must therefore
be cleaned at the end of each program, before
removing the laundry, with a damp cloth. The light
is on to remind you of this operation.
The filter in the inner door must be
removed for cleaning.
Do not be alarmed by the amount of fluff. It is
not due to excessive wear caused by the dryer.
All fabric loses fluff when drying but it goes
unnoticed in the air. In a tumble dryer it simply
collects in the filter.
After a while, a whitish film due to detergent
residue on laundry forms on the filters. When
this occurs, clean the filters with warm water
using a brush. Remove the filter in the door
opening as per picture below (it can be
positioned with the tooth facing to the left
or to the right).
