Clean the fluff filter Note: During drying, fluff and hair from the laundry is trapped by the fluff filter. If the fluff filter is blocked or dirty, this reduces the flow of air, which prevents the dryer from achieving its maximum performance. Clean fluff filters also reduce energy consumption and the drying time. Clean the fluff filter after each drying cycle: 1. Open the dryer door and remove all fluff from the door. 2. Remove the fluff filter. 3. Remove the fluff from the recess in the fluff filter. Note: Ensure that no fluff falls into the open shaft. 4. Open the fluff filter and remove all the fluff. Operating the appliance en5. Rinse away the fluff under running water or clean the fluff filter in the dishwasher. 6. Dry the fluff filter, close it and reinsert the fluff filter. Caution! The dryer may be damaged. Do not operate the dryer without a fluff filter or if the fluff filter is defective. 31
en Operating the appliance 32Emptying the condensate container Condensation will form in the appliance as it dries the laundry. If there is no drain hose connected to the appliance, the condensation water from the appliance will run into the condensation container. In this case, you will need to empty the condensation container each time the dryer finishes drying the laundry, and also if it becomes full before drying is complete. 1. Pull out the condensate container horizontally. 2. Pour out the condensation water. Caution! Dirty condensation water may be harmful to your health and cause material damage. Condensation water is not suitable for drinking and may be contaminated with fluff. Do not drink the condensation water or reuse it. 3. Push in the condensate container until you feel it lock back into place in the dryer.
M Setting the signal and current Setting the signal and cur rentYou can change the following settings: ■ The spin speed that was used for spinning in the washing machine; used exclusively to more accurately display the anticipated drying time, ■ the volume of the audible signal at the end of the programme, ■ the volume of the audible button signals, ■ the current rating for your dryer's fuse (10 A or 13 A). Note: The values for the energy label are determined using a circuit breaker/fuse rating of 13 A. If the circuit breaker/fuse rating is changed to 10 A, the drying time and energy consumption will be higher. You can find details on this in the consumption values table. ~ Page 40 You will need to activate setting mode before you can change these settings. Activating setting mode 1. Switch the dryer on. 2.

D Cleaning CleaningCleaning the dryer and the control panel :Warning Risk of death! There is a risk of electric shock as the dryer is operated with electricity. Disconnect the dryer from the mains before cleaning. Clean the dryer using only water and a soft, damp cloth. Remove all detergent residue, spray residue or other residues immediately. Do not use cleaning agents or agents for pre-treating laundry (e.g. prewash sprays, stain removers). Do not use high-pressure cleaners or steam jet cleaners to clean your appliance.
Cleaning the heat exchanger Notes ■ Clean the heat exchanger several times a month if you use the dryer more than twice a week. ■ If there is debris in the heat exchanger, this will increase the amount of time required for drying and will compromise the drying results. 1. Allow the dryer to cool down and place an absorbent cloth beneath the maintenance flap. Note: Residual water may leak out. 2. Open the maintenance flap fully. 3. Turn both locking levers towards each other. 4. Remove the top cap from the heat exchanger. 5. Remove the heat exchanger. 6. Flush water through the heat exchanger from all sides to completely remove all fluff. Caution! There is a risk of damage to the heat exchanger. Only use water to clean the heat exchanger, and do not use any hard objects or objects with sharp edges to remove the fluff. 7. Remove all fluff from the seals on the dryer and on the heat exchanger. 8. Allow all the water to drip off. Cleaning en35 en Cleaning 369. First insert the heat exchanger, and then fit the heat exchanger's top cap in place. 10.Turn both locking levers back and close the maintenance flap until it locks into place. 11.Close the maintenance flap and press on it until you feel it click in place. Cleaning the moisture sensor Note: The dryer is equipped with a stainless-steel moisture sensor. The moisture sensor measures how damp the laundry is. After long periods of usage the moisture sensor may become covered by a fine layer of limescale or residues of detergents and care products. Such residues must be removed regularly as the sensor function and in consequence the drying result may be impaired. Open the door and clean the moisture sensor with a coarse sponge. Caution! Moisture sensor may be damaged. Do not clean moisture sensors with abrasives and steel wool.
