Preparing the unit for installation
Setting up the dryer
  • The appliance plug must always be accessible
  • Ensure that the appliance is installed on a clean, level and firm surface.
  • Keep the cooling grille at the front of the dryer clear.
  • Level the dryer using the threaded feet with the aid of a spirit level.

* Please note that this is applicable to both condenser and vented dryers.

Preparing the unit for installation
Main Connection
  • Connect to an AC socket.
  • The mains voltage and the voltage shown on the rating plate must be the same.
  • The connected load and necessary fuse protection are specified on the rating plate.

* Please note that this is applicable to both condenser and vented dryers.

Exhaust outlets on the dryer
Outlets for the exhaust air duct are located on the back and left side panels of the dryer.
Condensation outlet
If there is a high level of condensation in the exhaust air duct, it is advisable to fix a condensation collector (standard) or a drain hole with a diameter of approximately 3mm to the lowest part of the exhaust air duct.
Left side panel connection
  1. The exhaust port on the left side panel is sealed with a removable cover.
  2. Twist the cover on the side panel in an anti-clockwise direction to loosen and remove it.
  3. Twist the bayonet ring on the back panel in an anti-clockwise direction to loosen and remove it. Attach the ring to the side panel exhaust port by turning it in a clockwise direction.
  4. Attach the panel cover to the back panel and twist in a clockwise direction to seal the exhaust port.
Back panel connection
  • The exhaust port on the back panel is open when the dryer is delivered (bayonet ring).
*Please note that this is only applicable to vented dryers
Installation options for the exhaust air duct
NOTE1
  • Run the exhaust air duct in a way that ensures that the moist air expelled does not get drawn in by the dryer again.
  • The duct should spread out with a 90 degree bend to prevent air backflow, with the end part of the duct facing downwards to the floor.
  • The end section of the duct should not be more than 2.5m higher than the exhaust port on the appliance.
NOTE2
Example:
Pipe conneciton - inside diameter = 100mm, smooth
A = straight piece
B = curved pipe
C = straight piece
D = pipe elbow
E = telescopic wall box with grid
Directly into the window
Route the exhaust air drectly into the open air via an exhaust air pipe through an open window.

Example:
Pipe connection - inside diameter = 100 mm, fleible pipe, corrugated
A = curved pipe
B = straight piece
C = curved pipe
D = straight piece
NOTE1
  • Route the exhaust air duct in suck a way that the dryer cannot draw the moist, warm exhaust air back in again.
  • The outlet for the exhaust air must be designed or positioned in suck a way as to prevent any additional back pressure (e.g. from a direct ingress of wind) on the escaping exhaust air, e.g. by using a 90o bend, facing done
  • The outlet for the exhaust air duct must be no more than 2.5m higher than the exhaust air opening on the appliance.
Installation of stacking kit

*This is applicable to both condenser and vented dryers.

Step1
  • Locate the holes that need to be drilled into the washing machine for mounting the stacking kit.
Step2
  • Drill holes based on the markings made and secure the stacking kit on top of the washer with the screws.
Step1
  • Using the template provided, adjust the height of each foot of the dryer.
Step2
  • Remove the brackets on both sides of the stacking kit.
Step1
  • Place the dryer on top of the washing machine and slide in via the groove of the stacking kit.
Step2
  • Put the brackets back in place and secure it with the screws provided.
