****** Page 4 ****** 2 Introduction Welcome to AeroXLTM Thank you for purchasing a Fisher & Paykel AeroXLTM condenser dryer. Your new dryer gives you the convenience of tumble drying and your clothes the advantage of not being subjected to the harsh overdrying effects of the sun. Your clothes will feel softer, retain their shape better and require less ironing. Your AeroXLTM dryer has the benefit of not needing to be vented outside, instead it condenses the moisture from the clothes and collects this in a water tank, or can pump it directly into a drain. This dryer has been specifically designed to complement our front loading Fisher & Paykel WashSmartTM and QuickSmartTM washers. We are proud of this dryer and trust it will serve you well for many years. At Fisher & Paykel we aim to provide innovative products that are simple to use, ergonomic, energy efficient and kind to the environment. Thousands of tonnes of laundry and 75 years of laundry experience have been programmed into your dryer to help give you the best possible performance. Your condensing dryer has numerous cycles and options so you can perform every drying task (including flat drying) with ease, allowing you to spend less time in the laundry. With the ability to automatically sense when your clothes are dry, your dryer is more efficient, making it kinder on your wallet and the environment. Please take the time to read these instructions carefully before you begin using your dryer. Following the advice in this user guide will ensure you get the performance you expect from your dryer and that you get the best possible results. Keep these instructions for future reference and pass them on with your dryer, if it changes hands. We hope you enjoy your new dryer. We have certainly enjoyed designing it for you.

****** Page 5 ****** Safety and warnings A WARNING! Fire Hazard Only dry fabrics that have been washed with water. Do not use heat to dry articles containing foam rubber or similarly textured rubber—like materials, dry on AIR DRY. Do not stop a tumble clothes dryer before the end of the drying cycle unless all items are removed and spread out in order to dissipate the heat. A clothes dryer produces combustible lint; the lint filter must be cleaned before each drying cycle. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or personal injury. 3 Dryer use The tumble dryer is intended only for drying textile material washed in water. The dryer should not be used to dry unwashed items. Undergarments that contain metal reinforcements should not be placed in the dryer. Damage to the dryer can result if the metal reinforcements come loose during drying. If you wish to dry these items use a drying rack. Check and remove all objects from pockets, eg lighters and matches. The maximum mass of dry textile material is eight kilograms. Do not overload your dryer. Never dry rubber articles, fibreglass, or any plastic items or film, eg plastic lined tablecloths and baby bibs. Clothes should go through the cool down/airing phase in the final part of the cycle. This ensures items are left at a temperature where they will not be damaged. If for any reason the dryer is stopped before the cycle has finished, dry clothes should be removed immediately and not left in the dryer. Clothes should be quickly spread out flat to cool so heat can dissipate, not left bunched up, eg in a clothes basket. This dryer has been designed for domestic use only, not for commercial applications, such as massage/beauty clinics where there may be increased lint accumulation or flammable materials in the atmosphere or load. Do not operate this product without the lint filter in place or allow lint to accumulate in or around the dryer. This dryer is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the dryer by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the dryer. Unplug the machine from the power supply when it is not in use. Do not swing or put weight on the door.

****** Page 6 ****** • • 4 Safety and warnings Your dryer is designed to stop operating in the event of power outage. When power is resumed, the machine will remain off until the POWER button is pressed. To restart the dryer, press POWER, select your drying cycle and touch START/PAUSE. Never attempt to repair the dryer yourself. The only user-removable parts of the dryer are the drain hose, lint filter, drying rack, condenser and the water tank. No other parts are designed to be removed by anyone other than a Fisher & Paykel Authorised Repairer. For problems that cannot be solved from information in this User Guide, turn off and unplug your dryer and contact a Fisher & Paykel Authorised Repairer. When disposing of the dryer, it is recommended that the door is removed to avoid children getting trapped inside, and that the electrical cable is cut off close to the dryer. Important! If you are using an extension cord or portable electrical outlet device (eg mufti-socket outlet box) ensure that it is positioned so that it does not come into contact with water or moisture. Lint Accumulated lint in the dryer can become a fire hazard; it also reduces the efficiency of the dryer by causing longer drying times and increased power consumption. Clean the lint filter before every load. Ensure the area around the dryer is clear of lint. At regular intervals have the interior of the dryer cleaned of any accumulated lint. This must be done by a qualified person for electrical safety. Spontaneous combustion Important! To reduce the risk of fire in a tumble dryer the following should be observed: Items that have been spotted or soaked with vegetable oil or cooking oil are a fire hazard and should not be placed in a tumble dryer. Oil-affected items can ignite spontaneously, especially when exposed to heat sources such as a tumble dryer. The items become warm causing an oxidation reaction in the oil. This oxidation creates heat. Ifthe heat cannot escape the items can become hot enough to catch fire. Piling, stacking or storing oil-affected items can prevent heat from escaping creating a fire hazard. If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable oil, cooking oil or have been contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer, they should first be washed in hot water with extra detergent – this will reduce, but not eliminate the fire hazard. The cool down cycle of the dryer should be used to reduce the temperature of these items. They should not be removed from the tumble dryer and piled or stacked while hot. Items that have previously been cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with flammable liquids or solids, eg petrol/gasoline, kerosene, dry cleaning solvents, vegetable or cooking oil, acetone, denatured alcohol, some brands of spot removers, turpentine, waxes and wax removers or other flammable or explosive substances should not be placed in a tumble dryer. Do not dry unwashed items in the tumble dryer.

****** Page 7 ****** 5 • Safety and warnings The dryer is not to be used if industrial chemicals have been used for cleaning. Fabric Softeners or similar products should not be used in a tumble dryer to eliminate the effects of static electricity, unless this practice is specifically recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric softener product. Rubber backed articles, foam rubber (latex foam), clothes or pillows fitted with foam rubber pads, fibreglass, shoes containing rubber, shower caps, babies waterproof napkin covers and waterproof textiles should not be dried in the dryer. These materials can when heated produce fire by spontaneous combustion.

****** Page 8 ****** 1 2 3 6 Installation instructions Accessories Please check you received the following accessories with your Fisher & Paykel dryer. You will find them inside the drum: lx Drying rack lx Drain hose lx Installation instructions and user guide Unpacking To ensure the best performance from your new dryer please follow the instructions below. Removing the packaging Remove the outer packaging (including the polystyrene packer and plastic wrapping). All packaging must be removed prior to use. Tilt the machine backwards and ‘walk’ it off the base one foot at a time. Not doing so may cause damage to your floor and dryer. Remove all packaging and accessories from inside the drum. Important! Ensure packaging materials are kept out of reach of children. Please help protect the environment and dispose of the packaging from around the dryer in an environmentally friendly manner. Location Important! The dryer must be installed in a well-ventilated, dust-free environment. The dryer must not be installed on any textured floor coverings (eg carpet, rugs) to ensure that openings at the base of the machine are not obstructed. Do not install the dryer behind a lockable door, sliding door, or behind a door where the hinge is on the opposite side to that of the dryer in such a way that the full opening of the door is inhibited. Ensure the dryer door can always be opened fully. Note: this dryer CANNOT BE INVERTED AND MOUNTED ON THE WALL. -cot Fig.2 Free standing

****** Page 9 ****** 7 1 2 1 2 3 Installation instructions Free standing The dryer stands on the floor and can easily be moved into position. Stacking Your dryer has been designed to be able to be stacked on top of a Fisher & Paykel WashSmartTM or QuickSmartTM front loading washer. A stacking kit MUST BE USED between the products and fitted correctly to the washing machine. Stacking Kit White: Part No. 427976. Please read and follow the installation and safety instructions carefully before using your dryer! Move the machine into the desired position. Do not lift the dryer by the top panel. Have a minimum clearance on all sides of at least 20 mm. Install the machine on a stable and level floor. Do not install your dryer in such a way that the dryer door cannot be opened fully. Do not install the dryer outside, in a damp place, where there is a risk of freezing, where it may be rained on, in direct sunlight or close to a source of heat. Do not place your machine on top of its power cable. Levelling the machine It is IMPORTANT to level the machine to ensure the machine runs efficiently with minimal noise. The dryer should be levelled in as close to its final position as possible so it stands balanced evenly on all four feet. Ensure the dryer does not rock in any direction. The AeroXLTM dryer comes with four adjustable feet, wind all four feet up or down until the dryer is correctly level. A spirit level can assist with this process. The machine is considered level when the bubble sits in the centre (ie within the two lines or the circle), when the spirit level is placed flat on top of your dryer, in the directions from 1. left to right, 2. back to front and 3. corner to corner. Never unscrew the feet completely from their housings. Fig.3 Levelling the feet Note: after levelling, the corners of the dryer cabinet should be clear of the floor and the machine must not rock in any direction.

****** Page 10 ****** 1 2 1 2 3 8 Installation instructions Draining The dryer is equipped with a condenser unit which accumulates water during the drying cycle. This water is collected in the removable water tank located at the top left of the dryer. The accumulated water must be emptied after each drying cycle. However you can also set up your dryer to drain automatically using the drain hose provided. Connecting the drain hose: Remove the black drain hose from the connection at the back of the dryer (A) and place it on the other connection to the left (B). Uncoil the white drain hose and connect it to the back of the dryer where the black drain hose was previously connected (C). Place the other end of the white drain hose into a tub or standpipe. The connection between the dryer and the white drain hose (C) must be secured to avoid a potential flood. Important! c Fig.4 Installing the drain hose If you connect the white drain hose onto your dryer and you do not secure the other end in a drain, your dryer will drain water onto your floor. Ensure the drain hose is securely fixed in place to an appropriate drain and is leak-free at the connection to the machine. Regularly check that your standpipe or tub is free from lint and other obstructions, which may affect drainage and cause flooding. The drain hose should be checked from time to time and replaced if any damage (eg wear, cuts, bulges, kinks, leaks, etc) are found. Do not bend the drain hose sharply, as this may cause it to split. The extended length of the provided drain hose is 1.3 m. In multi-storey apartments or any upper floor, the machine should be installed on a floor equipped with a drain. Draining must comply with local by-laws. Electrical connection This appliance must be connected to a 220 V — 240 V, 50 Hz, sinusoidal, 10 A electrical supply. Uncoil the power cord, remove and discard the plastic pin cover and plug into a power socket. Connect the appliance to an earthed outlet protected by a fuse of suitable capacity. Check the power cord for damage and make sure it is not squashed or twisted when installing the dryer. • Always remove the power cord from the power socket by the plug, not by the cord.

****** Page 11 ****** Installation instructions Important! If you are using an extension cord or a portable electrical outlet device (eg multi-socket outlet box), ensure that it is positioned so that it does not come into contact with water or moisture. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN DEATH OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK. Do not touch or operate the machine with wet hands or with bare-feet. A damaged power cord must be replaced by a Fisher & Paykel Authorised Repairer, its service agent or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard. The appliance must not be operated until it is repaired, as there is risk of electric shock. Do not operate this machine if it has been damaged during transport. Contact your Fisher & Paykel Dealer or Fisher & Paykel Authorised Repairer. 9

****** Page 12 ****** 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 5 6 10 Installation instructions Completing the installation Installation test cycle Important! Ensure the installation test cycle is completed before you dry any items in your dryer. This is to check that your dryer is installed correctly and that it is functioning properly prior to use. Turn your dryer on by pressing the POWER button. Select the TIME DRY 30 cycle. Ensure the drum is empty and the door is closed (you will hear it click shut). Touch the START/PAUSE button. The drum will start rotating. Observe the machine for any problems. The dryer will beep and display any faults on the screen if there are any problems. Refer to pages 24 and 25. At the completion of the cycle open the door and check that there is warmth inside the dryer. This indicates the dryer is operating normally. Important! If there are any problems, you must address these before proceeding with normal use. The dryer will automatically turn off at the end of the cycle if there are no problems. Before you start, it is a good idea to go through the following checklist: Has the packaging been removed? Is the machine correctly levelled, and the cabinet corners clear of the floor and walls? Are the water tank, condenser and lint filter correctly in place? Has the power cord been connected to an appropriate power supply and the power turned on? Have you performed the installation test cycle? If external draining is preferred, is the white drain hose attached to the correct outlet and hooked into a standpipe or tub?

****** Page 17 ****** Sorting and loading When preparing your load there are some important things to consider: Sorting It is best that you sort your garments before placing them into the dryer. Sort into loads of 15 similar items, and loads that will take similar times to dry. Heavier items (eg towels, t-shirts and flannelette sheets) are best dried separately from lightweight items (eg synthetics, polyester- cotton sheets and shirts). This prevents the possibility of some items becoming over-dried whilst others are still damp. It will also help to extend the life of your clothing and linen. Look for a care label on your clothes as this will tell you if they can be safely tumble dried. Drying your clothes as soon as you remove them from the washer will decrease the chance of wrinkles, and dye transfer from coloured items to white items from occurring. We recommend that articles of clothing with screen-printing are turned inside out to prevent damage to the print. Garments with hooks or zippers should be fastened and where possible, turned inside out. Specific item/drying requirements Towels Sheets, pillowcases, duvet/doona covers Bulky items doonas, duvets, sleeping bags, jackets Shirts, pants, other creasables Woollens, silks Delicates, fine fabrics Jeans Shoes, hats, soft toys or other odd shaped items Suggested cycle and options Everyday Everyday or Heavy Bulky Easy Iron Rack Dry Delicate or Rack Dry Heavy Rack Dry Suggested temperature High High Low Medium n/a Low High n/a Comments Towels produce a lot of lint and are best dried on their own. Ensure duvet/doona cover openings are buttoned/domed before placing in the dryer. Only dry one bulky item at a time and place a few knotted towels into the machine at the same time to ensure the bulky item moves around evenly. WRINKLE FREE is automatically selected to help minimise creasing once the drying cycle has finished. For items that could be damaged if they are tumbled, eg woollens. You can further reduce the dryness level to damp or use RACK DRY for very delicate items. Turn jeans inside out to help maintain their appearance. Dry separately from other items. Check on the item regularly throughout the drying cycle.

****** Page 18 ****** Sorting and loading Before you load Check pockets for items that could damage your clothes or get caught in the dryer. Close zippers, hooks and eyes, and other fastenings (ie fasten the openings of duvet/doona covers), and remove loose bra wires. These may damage both your dryer and your clothes. Check the lint filter is clean and the water tank is empty (if the dryer is not set up to automatically drain). To reduce creasing Shake clothes out and load individually to help items dry evenly. Launder permanent press garments separately, eg business shirts. Allow enough room in the dryer for clothes to tumble freely. Hang garments as soon as the dryer cycle is complete to reduce the need for ironing. Loading Garments need to be loaded correctly to minimise creasing and wrinkling, and to ensure the load is dried evenly. Make sure there is plenty of room for the garments to tumble freely while drying. Hint: load the dryer in terms of the space the garments take up when dry, rather than when they are wet. The general rule is that one wash load equals one dryer load. Do not overload your dryer, as it may damage your dryer and clothes. It is a good idea to dry “permanent press” type garments (eg business shirts) together on a separate cycle with the WRINKLE FREE option ON. This will help reduce wrinkling and the need for ironing. Important! Do not overload your dryer beyond its rated capacity (eight kilograms of dry clothes). Never put dripping wet clothes in or on top of the dryer as excess water may cause an electrical hazard. Do not under any circumstances dry an electric blanket or any other electrical, plastic or rubber items in your AeroXLTM dryer, unless the care label specifically states it is safe to do so. Never dry these items at high temperatures. Do not dry curtains in your dryer. Sunlight makes them brittle and they may disintegrate during drying.

****** Page 19 ****** Sorting and loading Drying times Drying very small loads is inefficient. Try to dry medium to large loads. Heavier items (towels, T-shirts, flannelette sheets) will take longer to dry than light items (synthetics and polyester cotton sheets and shirts). Spin clothes at the highest spin speed suitable for the load type. The more water you remove in the wash, the less drying time required. Care labels on garments provide valuable information about the fabric type and how the garment should be dried. Always follow the advice on the garment labels. Only dry items in this dryer that have a care label stating tumble drying is suitable. Separate coloured items from white/light items where possible, especially when new. Colour run may be an issue, especially if you intend to delay the start of the drying cycle. Lint Some items are lint givers, while others are lint collectors. Always dry lint givers and collectors separately. Lint givers Towels Flannelette sheets Nappies Lint collectors Synthetics, eg polar fleece Corduroy Polyester cottons Delicate or easily damaged items (eg woollen or silk garments, nylon stockings, fine fabrics, delicate embroidered fabrics, garments with metal accessories, sleeping bags and other down items) should be dried separately, using the DELICATE cycle or the RACK DRY cycle (if you do not want them tumbled). Drying rack There are many items that would benefit from being dried on a drying rack. For example items like sport shoes, soft toys, hats and woollen items that may be damaged if they are tumbled. A drying rack is installed in your dryer when it leaves the factory. To remove it, tilt the top of the rack towards you to detach the legs from the slots in the lint filter, and gently remove from the drum. When you are using the drying rack you must select the RACK DRY cycle. Fig. 12 Drying rack Rack Dry Fig. 13 Drying rack cycle

Timed programmes (Time Dry 30, 60, 90) The machine dries for the selected time regardless of the level of moisture in your clothes. It is important to check the clothes throughout the timed programmes to avoid over drying.

****** Page 21 ****** Drying cycle options 19 All drying cycles default to the recommended options for that cycle based on the average expected load to be dried using that cycle. You can vary the options (eg DRYNESS LEVEL, DRY TEMP) to create your desired cycle. Note: some options are not available on some cycles, for clothes care reasons, or because the option is not appropriate for the cycle. To change a drying option or options you have selected after a cycle has started, touch START/PAUSE and select your new setting, then touch START/PAUSE again to resume the cycle with the new setting or settings. Note: some options may not be available for selection under certain conditions and after • particular stages of the drying cycle have passed. Dryness level Your AeroXLTM dryer takes the guess work out of choosing drying times by sensing the dryness of the load. When your dryer senses that the clothes have dried to the dryness level you have selected, the dryer will automatically finish the cycle. The dryer has five dryness levels from DAMP through to EXTRA DRY. Choose the dryness level to suit your load depending on how dry you wish for your clothes to be. If you find the load is not dry enough, select the next dryness level up. The higher the level, the longer the drying time and the drier your clothes will become. Note: two lights are used to show some dryness levels. For example, to achieve the DAMP DRY setting both the DRY and the DAMP lights will be illuminated. Airing/Cool down (Cool) When the dryer has sensed that the load is dry it will automatically go into a 10 minute airing or cool down cycle. During COOL the drum tumbles and cool air is blown through the clothes. This cools the load to reduce creasing if the clothes are left in the dryer. Dry Temp There are four drying temperatures you can choose from: High: Hot air up to 800C is circulated through the clothes. Medium: Warm air limited to 700C, is circulated through the load. Low: Uses warm air up to 600C. No heat: Cool air is blown through the dryer for the period selected. Touch the DRY TEMP button until the light next to your desired drying temperature is illuminated.

****** Page 22 ****** Drying cycle options Wrinkle Free If you wish to minimise wrinkling, select one of the WRINKLE FREE options. At the end of the cycle, the drum will rotate periodically and cool air will be circulated through the load to minimise wrinkling and creasing. This is particularly useful ifyou cannot remove the items immediately after the cycle ends. There are two WRINKLE FREE options: ON provides WRINKLE FREE operation for 2 hours. EXTRA provides WRINKLE FREE operation for 24 hours. If you wish to stop the dryer at any stage during the WRINKLE FREE stage of the cycle, simply touch START/PAUSE. You can then open the dryer door and remove your items. Press POWER to stop the cycle and turn the dryer off. Signal The SIGNAL option automatically defaults to ON for all cycles. This means a series of beeps will sound at the end of a cycle, to alert you that the dryer has finished. You can turn the SIGNAL OFF by touching the SIGNAL button twice (no lights will then be illuminated). When you select a DRYNESS LEVEL above DAMP/DRY and wish your dryer to alert you to remove items once your load reaches the DAMP/DRY stage, touch the SIGNAL button once to select DAMP DRY. Ensure ON is also selected. When your load reaches the DAMP/DRY stage, the dryer will beep to alert you to remove your items, then continue drying until the remaining load reaches the dryness level you selected. Indicators There are a number of indicators to alert you when you need to attend to your machine, either to clean the lint filter, empty the water tank or to clean the condenser (refer to pages 23 and 24 for more information). Keylock Extra On Wrinkle Free Fig.17 Wrinkle free option Damp Dry On Signal Fig.18 Signal options Water Tank Condenser Lint Filter Fig. 19 Indicators This option enables you to deactivate the buttons on the display panel, except for the POWER and KEYLOCK buttons. This option helps prevent accidental button presses. To turn Keylock mode ON or OFF, at any time when the dryer is powered on: Touch and hold the KEYLOCK button for 2 seconds. Note: when activated, the light above the KEYLOCK button is illuminated. If Keylock mode is activated and the machine is powered off: To turn your dryer on, press the POWER button, then touch and hold the KEYLOCK button for two seconds to turn Keylock off. Select your drying cycle, any options and then touch START/PAUSE to start the cycle.

****** Page 23 ****** Drying cycle options Delay Start The DELAY START option enables you to delay the start of the drying cycle from between 21 1 2 3 4 5 2 3 5 minutes and 12 hours. Times you can select are 5 min, 15 min, 30 mint 1 hour, then hourly up to 12 hours. This can be useful to time your drying to finish when you arrive home from work, or to start when power rates are lower. To programme a DELAY START, simply touch the MORE o button to increase the delay time and LESS button to decrease the time or to turn DELAY START off. Touch START/PAUSE to confirm your selection and start the countdown. Once the DELAY START has been started, the time will count down on the digital display in one minute increments, the DELAY START light will flash and the START/PAUSE light will stop flashing and turn on solid. Note: if you hold the MORE O button down, the time displayed on the screen will increase after every half a second (more convenient than touching the button repetitively). To remove a delay start time once it is counting down, simply touch START/PAUSE, then touch the LESS e button to decrease the time to zero. Touch START/PAUSE to start the cycle immediately. Important! We suggest that you avoid using DELAY START for damp, non-colourfast items as this may cause dye run to occur. Customising dryer cycles After using your dryer a few times you may discover there are some drying options you prefer for some cycles. You can programme your dryer to remember the drying options you prefer for each drying cycle. For instance, you may want to set the EASY IRON cycle to a lower drying temperature or set the EVERYDAY cycle so it automatically has the WRINKLE FREE option selected.

****** Page 24 ****** 1 2 3 22 Caring for your dryer When you have finished using your dryer Unplug the machine from the power socket. Wipe around the door to remove any remaining condensation and foreign matter. Clear the lint filter and empty the water tank (if not set up to automatically drain). Cleaning your AeroXLTM Before you start cleaning your dryer, ensure that it is disconnected from the power (ie unplug the machine from the power socket). Cleaning the control panel and outer surfaces of the dryer Use a soft damp cloth to wipe all surfaces, then wipe dry. Avoid using chemical or scouring cleaners, as these will damage the paint and plastic surfaces of your dryer. Cleaning the inside of your dryer It is important that you occasionally clean the inside of your dryer. If the drum has any residual dirt or lint stuck to it, remove this and wipe it clean with a damp cloth. Do not leave any metal objects in the drum, as these may cause rust. Cleaning the lint filter Lint is generally formed during wearing and washing. Fibres (ie lint) released from the clothes during the drying cycle are collected in the lint filter. It is important to clean the lint filter after every load, as the lint produced in the drying process can become a fire hazard if it is allowed to accumulate in or around your dryer. The lint filter is located in the door opening (at the bottom). There is a warning light that will flash at the beginning of every cycle to remind you to clean the filter and will stop once the START/PAUSE button is touched. The warning light will also flash on and off during the cycle if the filter becomes blocked. The filter should be cleaned as soon as the LINT FILTER light starts flashing. Lint becomes a fire hazard if left to build up, and will reduce the efficiency of your dryer. To clean the filter: Open the dryer door. Remove the lint filter by pulling it up and out of the filter slot. Open it out and wipe the surface clean with your hand. Close the lint filter and place it back in the opening. Ensure the filter is fitted correctly back in place before operating the dryer. Fig.20 Lint filter Important! Ifthe lint filter becomes damaged, contact your Fisher & Paykel Authorised Repairer to arrange getting a new filter. Do not operate your dryer with a damaged lint filter or without the filter in place, as this will cause damage to your dryer.

****** Page 25 ****** Caring for your dryer 23 Emptying the water collection tank: During the drying cycle steam condenses into water and is collected in the water tank, located at the top left of the dryer. It is important to empty the water tank after every load. There is an indicator light that will illuminate when the water tank needs emptying. A user warning will also be displayed on the screen (refer to page 24). If the water tank becomes full during operation, the dryer will go into COOL mode for several minutes, then pause and beep to alert you. Empty the tank and touch START/PAUSE to resume the cycle. Note: you do not need to empty the water tank if you have set up the drain hose to drain the water automatically. To empty the water tank: Remove the water tank by holding onto the handle and pulling outwards gently to remove it. Ensure that you keep the tank level when it is being removed to prevent the water collected from spilling. Pour the water down the sink or into a bucket, and then put the tank back in place. Important! Fig21 Removing the water collection tank Fig.22 Tipping out the water condensing tank 1 2 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 Do not use the water collected in the water tank for drinking or food processing. Never run the dryer without the water tank in place. If the water tank becomes full, the tumble dryer will pause drying and will sound an alarm. You must empty the water tank before the dryer can continue drying. Empty the tank, replace it back in the housing then touch START/PAUSE to resume the cycle. Cleaning the condenser: If the CONDENSER indicator light starts to flash this indicates that the condenser needs to be cleaned. The condenser should be cleaned after every 100 drying hours. The light illuminates when you first turn the machine on, then turns off once the START/PAUSE button has been touched. To clean the condenser: Switch off the power supply and remove the power plug before cleaning the condenser. Open the condenser cover. Turn the two condenser lock levers 90 degrees then pull out the condenser. Clean the condenser with pressurised water and wait until the water drains. Replace the condenser. Turn the two condenser lock levers to lock the condenser back in place again. Make sure that these locks are engaged securely. Close the condenser cover. Cleaning the sensors: There are humidity sensors in your machine that detect whether the laundry is dry or not. These sensors need to be cleaned periodically (we recommend approximately four times a year). To clean the sensors: Open the door of your machine. Allow the machine to cool if drying has been carried out. Locate the metal sensors just behind the lint filter. Wipe the sensors with a soft cloth, dampened with vinegar. Dry the sensors with a dry cloth. Fig.23 Turning the condenser locking levers Fig.24 Pulling out the condenser Fig.25 Location of the humidity sensors

****** Page 26 ****** 24 Before you call for service User warnings Your dryer is capable of diagnosing a number of its own problems. It will sound a continuous series of beeps and display a code when it has a problem that you can correct yourself. All control panel lights will turn off and a code will be displayed to inform you what the problem is. To stop the beeps sounding, press any button on the control panel. Do not try to continue your drying cycle once you stop the noise. You must address the problem the dryer is alerting you to. Check this chart before you call for service.

****** Page 28 ****** Solving operating problems The following is a list of problems you may encounter when using this appliance and some suggestions that may help to correct the problem. If you still have problems, please contact your Fisher & Paykel Authorised Repairer. Pressing POWER does not turn on the dryer Is the electrical cord plugged into a power socket? If not plug the cord in. If there is a power switch, is it switched on? Could your household power supply be at fault? If your plug is suitable, try plugging another electrical appliance into the same outlet. Turn off the power at the power point. Unplug the dryer from the power socket. Wait 60 seconds, plug it back in, turn it on and try again. Check your house circuit breakers and fuses. If they are at fault contact an electrician. Is the power cord damaged? Dryer does not heat Is the dryer set to the AIR DRY cycle? Is the water tank full? Has the dryer cycle progressed to COOL? Check the Progress lights, are the COOL and END lights illuminated? If the problem persists call for service. Pressing START/PAUSE does not start the drying cycle Did you touch START/PAUSE firmly enough? Is the dryer paused? (the START/PAUSE light will be flashing). Is the dryer door closed properly? Is there a user warning or fault code displayed on the display panel? Refer to pages 24 and 25 for help. Is the dryer making a beeping noise? Is the water tank full? Is the water tank properly in place? Has the lint filter been cleaned? Is the lint filter in place? Has the dryer been overloaded? Is DELAY START set? Dryer keeps stopping and starting Has WRINKLE FREE been selected? Refer to page 20. Dryer stops working mid-cycle Has there been a power failure? If so, press POWER and restart the desired cycle. Has the dryer been paused? Is the door open?

****** Page 29 ****** Solving operating problems Drying is taking too long/results were not satisfactory Have you selected an appropriate cycle for the load? What DRYNESS LEVEL did you select? If appropriate, select a higher DRYNESS LEVEL setting. Try selecting a higher DRY TEMP. 27 Is the dryer overloaded for the cycle? Remember some cycles have a lower max load size. Refer to page 18. Try dividing the load in half and dry half at a time. Is the lint filter blocked? Check this does not need to be cleaned. Is the condenser blocked? Check this does not need to be cleaned. Refer to page 23. Does the water tank need to be emptied? Check this does not need to be emptied. What environmental conditions are you using the dryer in? In hot, humid conditions the dryer will take longer to dry a load and be less efficient. How wet was the load when you put it in? It might require more water being removed before drying, eg select a faster spin speed on your washer, if appropriate for your load. Is the dryer draining water out properly? Did items get wrapped up inside other items? Separate items and dry similar items together. Open items out when you place them in the dryer. Do not fold them up. Untangle items, eg pull long sleeves out so they are not stuck/trapped on the inside of the garment. Dryer is not draining Has the drain hose been connected to the water tank? Is the water tank in place correctly? Is the drain hose or drain blocked or damaged? Clothes got too hot or damaged Did you select the appropriate cycle and options for the garments that were in the load? Did you remove the items before the end of cycle cool down? Removing items before cool down may damage clothing if it is not spread out and exposed to air to cool once removed from the dryer. Dryer is beeping, displaying unfamiliar light patterns and/or a message on the digital display See the ‘User warnings’ and ‘Fault codes’ sections, pages 24 and 25. Try turning the dryer off and waiting 30 seconds before turning it back on.

****** Page 30 ****** Solving operating problems Small puddle of water coming from under machine Ensure the water tank is correctly in place. Has the water tank been emptied? Are there any signs of damage to the water tank? If you are using the drain hose: Is the drain hose attached properly at the machine end? Has the drain hose sustained any damage? Is the drain hose still located in the drain? Sometimes drain hoses can move or get displaced, which may lead to water draining onto the floor. Is the drain blocked? Ensure the dryer door is closed properly and there is nothing obstructing the door opening which could affect the seal. Cycle time longer than usual Cycle time is approximate and may be affected by the composition and size of the load, how wet/ dry the load was to begin with, environmental conditions, cycle and options selected, sensing while drying and any interruptions during the cycle. Refer to page 14. Small amount of water in the drum at end of cycle Does the water tank require emptying? What environmental conditions are present? If conditions are particularly hot and humid, it is possible vaporised water may re-condense in the drum or on the inside of the door. Noises Have you overloaded the machine? Continuous beeping or a musical series of beeps with a message displayed on digital display (refer to pages 24 and 25). Beeps signalling the end of a drying cycle – these can be turned off (refer to page 20). Vibrating What kind of surface have you installed the dryer on? Is it stable? Have you overloaded the machine? Is the dryer correctly level? Refer to page 7. Creasing Selecting the EASY IRON cycle will minimise creasing. Have you overloaded the machine? Try selecting a lower DRY TEMP and DRYNESS LEVEL. Select the WRINKLE FREE option. Try not to leave wet clothes sitting in the dryer for a long period before starting it.

****** Page 31 ****** Solving operating problems Linting Has the lint filter been cleaned and replaced correctly? Was the dryer overloaded? Dry lint givers separately from lint receivers. Refer to page 17. 29 Dry similar colours together (eg light-coloured items with light-coloured items, dark items with dark items). Over drying clothes in the dryer can cause them to attract lint. Were new items (eg towels, flannelette sheets) dried in your dryer recently? Fabric damage Were delicate items dried separately on DELICATE or RACK DRY? Were there metal parts on the items, or in the load? Were zips and other clasps fastened? Were items separated and dried on an appropriate cycle for the fabric type? If using RACK DRY, did items fall off the rack? Was an appropriate DRY TEMP and DRYNESS LEVEL selected for the fabric type? Did you monitor the dryness of clothes on a cycle for a set period of time? Did you follow the instructions for tumble drying on the care label? Dye transfer Remember to separate whites and colours. Do not leave wet items sitting in the dryer for long periods of time before drying, if they are prone to colour run. If you do intend to leave them for long periods before drying, then separate the load and put items that may cause colour run aside. Tangling Try separating out larger items from smaller items. Load items individually into the dryer and not folded. Try using the EASY IRON cycle to dry shirts. Try drying smaller load sizes. Dry pantyhose, bras and any other delicate items prone to tangling on the RACK DRY cycle. Dry sheets and duvet/doona covers separately from other laundry. Ensure duvet/doona covers are buttoned or domed closed before drying.
