Important information
Operating the machine
! To improve the life expectancy of your machine, it is recommended that you do not stop or cancel your
programme during the drying cycle.
! It is recommended that you allow the programme to complete its full cycle, which includes completing the
‘cool tumble’.
! A 20 minute ‘cool tumble’ is included at the end of drying, allowing fabrics to cool down, minimising
creasing - The load may still be warm when removed from the machine.
! If your machine is not permanently plumbed in, turn on the cold water supply and hook the drain hose over the
sink to enable the condensing action to work.
! The dryer is intended for use only where water is used for the cleaning process.
! Be careful not to touch the drum at the top, as this area does get hot during drying.
! On no account should liquid fabric conditioner be added during the drying process.
! Misuse of the dryer may create a fire hazard.
! Select HIGH heat by pressing the ‘Drying High Heat’ option button (
will show in Display, Aquarius
If this option is not selected the programme will automatically default to low heat (
will show in
Display, Aquarius
! A spin cycle may be carried out during the drying programme.
! Your machine is fitted with a revolutionary self-clean filter, which will flush with water during drying - therefore
you may hear water entering the machine during the drying cycle.
! The Drying Times dial (Aquarius only) DOES NOT rotate - Return the dial to the ‘Off’ position at the end of each
drying cycle.
