Remove the laundry and rearrange where necessary. Do not leave it in the drum too long after the programme ends, because it may be seriously creased. When you dry items with long fibers, such as bath mats, a lot of lint may be generated, and the lint balls may adhere to the other clothing.


Required Time
Times depend on the programmes, Drying Level settings and other settings that have been selected.

  • Since the displayed times change automatically according to the sizes and moisture levels of the loads and the ambient temperatures of the appliance, the times might not decrease for a while or might suddenly decrease.
  • For the programmes which automatically weigh the loads (see the “Load weighed,“ column on page 14), 3 minutes after drying starts the remaining required times might suddenly be shortened.
  • Actual times may differ from those shown.

Fault Checklist

Problem Cause
Appliance does not work. –  The fuse may have blown out or breaker may have tripped.

–  The mains plug may not be connected firmly to the mains socket.

–  The On button may have not been pressed.

–  The Start button may have not been pressed.

–  The door may not be closed properly.

Buttons do not work –  Settings cannot be changed while drying is in progress. To change settings, switch the appliance off and on again. Then, set the settings again.

–  Child Lock may be activated. (See page 9.)

Drying repeatedly starts and stops. – This is not a malfunction; the drum slowly rotates and stops repeatedly when the “Anti-crease” function has been set.
Laundry is not sufficiently dried. (Some portions are damp.) –  The laundry might have been added to the drum during drying.

–  The laundry may have become tangled.

–  The laundry may be too heavy.

–  Try using the Warm Timed programme (Timed Prog. Warm) for small synthetic fibre loads, or dry them together with large items of clothing.

–  The moisture sensors may be dirty. (See page 18.)

Problem Cause
Drying takes too long. –  The laundry may be too wet.

–  The laundry may have become tangled.

–  The laundry may be too heavy.

–  Clothes which dry quickly and clothes which dry slowly may have been dried together.

–  The ambient air temperature may be too low.

Items made of synthetic fibres are charged with static electricity after drying. – Reduce static electricity charges by adding fabric conditioners to wash loads during the final rinse cycles.
A small item, for example, a button, has dropped through the filter frame hole. – Bring the item out by opening the panel in front of the heat exchanger unit just the same as when cleaning the fine filter.
The clogged filter warning indicator is flashing although none of the filters are clogged. – This is not a malfunction; the clogged filter warning indicator flashes to alert users to clean the filters after every 10th drying programme (twice a month). The indicator may flash even if the filters have been cleaned.
The displayed remaining time changes. – The remaining time is estimated and corrected continually. Thus, the time displayed may change.
The operating sound changes. – This is normal; the change is caused by the on-off conditions of the compressor and draining pump.
‘0’ display remains after the programme has finished. – This is not a malfunction; without the Anti-crease function being set, the appliance automatically switches itself off 2 hours after the programme finishes.
The lamp inside the drum has gone out. – The lamp lights up for 10 minutes when the door is opened after the programme finishes. To activate the lamp again, switch on the appliance, and then open the door again.
The lamp inside the drum does not light up. – If 2 hours have elapsed after a programme is completed, the lamp will not light up since the appliance automatically switches itself off.
Drying has finished with the Anti-crease set to OFF, however, the Anti-crease indicator is flashing. – For safety, the dryer cools down inside the drum. The Anti-crease indicator flashes during this time.
