If the clothes are
not dry after normal drying time:
Check that you used the correct heater setting.
Check that you have not set the timer within a cool
Check that the lint filter has been cleaned. A blocked
filter will restrict the airflow.
Check that your dryer is heating - below the door to the
right side, should feel warm to the touch after the first
10-15 minutes of its programme. Failure to heat may
indicate the safety cut-out has operated. To reset,
simply press the red button at the rear of the machine.
If it has operated, a sharp "click" will be heard. This cut-
out only operates if the airflow is severely restricted so
make sure the filter is clean, the air inlets and outlets at
the front and back are not blocked, and that all other
restrictions are removed before re-starting.
If the cut-out continues to operate after checking the
above points, you should contact your service agent.
If your machine
does not work check the following before
calling a service engineer:
Check that there is a supply of electricity.
Check that the door has been properly closed and the
machine is switched on.
Check the plug internal connections.
