TROUBLESHOOTING

MACHINE WILL NOT START

Check
• that the door is closed properly.
• if the child lock is activated. To start the tum-
ble dryer when the child lock is activated, hold
in the
-button for 3 seconds. See Chang-
ing settings.
• that the power switch is pressed in.
• that the plug (if fitted) is plugged in.
• that the fuse in the fuse box has not blown.
Try switching two fuses with the same rating.
• that the thermal cut-out has not tripped, see
below.
OVERHEATING PROTECTION
The dryer is designed with an overheat protec-
tion switch that will automatically turn the
machine off if the temperature gets too high.
The machine will not start until it has cooled
down sufficiently.
If the unit shuts down because of overheating,
check that the lint filter exhaust hose, vent duct,
and the condenser unit are free of lint. These
components need to be cleaned on a regular
basis. Additionally, the lint filter may need to
be cleaned with warm, soapy water and a soft
brush a few times a year to ensure the filter
screen is not blocked. Using dryer sheets (not
recommended) can also cause this problem.
Should the machine turn itself off because of
overheating, it will not be possible to restart
the unit until it has cooled down sufficiently.
This could possibly take up to thirty minutes.
To restart the unit once it has cooled down,
press the "Start" button.
TROUBLESHOOTING
NOTE:
If your dryer overheats frequently, it may not be
vented properly or the room in which it is loca-
ted may not have sufficient air circulation. Con-
tact your installer to have these issues checked
out.

DRYING TAKES TOO LONG

Check that the lint filter and condenser are not
clogged, see the Maintenance chapter. The dry-
ing time may also be long if a condenser dryer is
placed in too small a room or if the air in the
room is too warm. Make sure the dryer has
access to more cool air, for example by opening
doors and/or windows.

ERROR MESSAGES

The character display shows whether a fault has
occurred during the programme. To cancel an
error message after the fault has been corrected
as described below, switch off the machine or
change the programme.
You can check and fix some faults yourself:
Over flow. Indicating that the condensation
water tank is full or that the lower water maga-
zine is full, due to the pump or hoses being
clogged or malfunctioning. Empty the tank and
check to ensure there are no kinks or blockage
in the hose. If this does not help, phone for
service.
