Care and cleaning
Emptying the water tank
Water extracted from the laundry condenses
inside the machine and is collected in a tank.
The tank must be emptied after each drying
cycle to ensure efficient operation when the
machine is next used. The light
reminds you of this operation.
Proceed as follows:
• O pen the small door at the lower part
of the cabinet
• T urn the yellow stops upwards
• P ull out the tank
• O pen the small cover and empty the water
out of the container
• C lose the small cover and correctly re-insert
• P ush the container in until it clicks, then turn
the yellow stops downwards to lock it firmly
• C lose the small door and press the START/
PAUSE button again to allow the program
The tank must be re-inserted correctly.
After emptying and inserting the tank the Start/
Pause button has to be depressed again to
allow the program to continue.
Handy tip: The condensed water may be used
in a steam iron or to top up a battery, etc. In this
case it must be filtered (e.g. through a coffee filter).

lime contained in the water), which prevents
the probes from detecting the correct degree
