and options you choose for each pro-

Select programme

The choice of programme depends

on what you intend to do with the

items after tumbling. The programme

options are Extra Dry, Dry, Normal Dry, Iron

Dry, Timed programme and Airing.

Extra Dry

This programme is for items that are par-

ticularly difficult to dry, e.g. jeans with very

thick seams.


Knit fabrics in particular are prone to shrink-

age. Use the Dry, Normal Dry or Iron Dry

programmes for such items. Stretch clothes

back into shape immediately after drying.

Dry, Normal Dry

These programmes shut off the heat once

the load is dry without being “bone-dry”.

The Dry programme shuts off the heat

slightly later than Normal Dry. Use trial and

error to find out what works best. Use these

programmes when you want items to be

completely dry.
