Fitting the vent hose
A special stacking kit is available
throughTo simplify the installation, there
is a choice of vent outlets: one at the
back, the others in the left and right-
hand side.
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.
Advice: If the hose is long and the
room temperature low, the moisture
might condense to water inside the
hose. This is an unavoidable natural
phenomenon. To prevent this water
from Iying in the hose or flowing back
into the tumble dryer, it is advisable to
drill a small hole (dia. 3 mm) in the
lowest point of the hose and to place a
small container below it.(See picture,
point B).
Once connected to the dryer, run the
vent hose to the desired outlet point,
ensuring that the run's overall length is
less than 2 m, and that it contains no

more than two bends. As to the outlet
itself, if you have decided on a fixed
wall/window grille, a good local

supply you with the necessary fittings
and installation advice.
It is important not to connect the
vent hose to, for example, a cooker
hood, or a chimney or flue pipe
designed to carry the exhaust from
a fuel burning appliance.
Note that to avoid condensation
problems, it is essential that the dryer
be fitted with the flexible hose to carry
its "exhaust" at least beyond the
kitchen units; preferable outside the
In order to prevent the appliance from
overheating, it is important that the
steam exhaust is unobstructed.
Therefore, in case of a permanent hose
fitted to an exterior wall or ceiling, it
must be ensured an exhaust capacity
of at least 150 m3/h.
If the dryer is fitted next to kitchen
units, make sure that the vent hose is
not squashed. If the hose is partially
squashed, drying efficiency will be
reduced, resulting in longer drying
times and higher energy consumption.
If the hose is completely squashed, the
