Rinse the fluff filter under running water a Page 4.
Empty the condensate container.
If necessary, clean the filter in the condensate container a Page 9.
Read these instructions and the separate Energy-saving
mode instructions before operating the dryer.
Observe the safety instructions on page 13.
Your dryer is designed to be particularly energy-saving and its technical features include
a refrigeration circuit that uses energy efficiently, in a similar way to a refrigerator.
The dryer's heat exchanger is cleaned automatically during drying.
The fluff filters and filter in the condensate container must be cleaned regularly.
Never operate the dryer without the fluff filters and without filter in condensate container.
During drying, fluff and hairs from the laundry are trapped in the fluff filter. A blocked fluff filter
may impair the heat exchange process.
The fluff filter should therefore be cleaned after every drying cycle.
Rinse the filter regularly under running water a Page 4.
Filter in the condensate container
The filter in the condensate container cleans the condensation. This condensation is required
for the automatic cleaning process. The filter must be cleaned regularly under running water.
Empty the condensate container before cleaning the filter a Page 9.
Do not dry any fabrics that have come into contact with solvents, oil, wax, grease or paint:
e.g. hair styling products, nail varnish remover, stain remover, cleaning solvent. etc.
Empty all pockets.
Do not dry airtight fabrics.
Avoid drying fabrics that produce a lot of fluff.
Woollens should be refreshed only using the woollens programme.
