Drying cycle options
Timed programs (Time Dry, Rack Dry, Wool)
Timed programmes of 10 to 150 minutes can be selected using the ‘More’ and ‘Less’ buttons.
The machine dries for the selected time regardless of the level of moisture in your clothes. It is important to check the clothes throughout the timed programmes to avoid over drying.
All drying cycles default to the recommended options for that cycle based on
the average expected load to be dried using that cycle. You can vary the options (eg ‘Dryness Level’, ‘Dry Temp’) to create your desired cycle. Note: some options are not available on some cycles, for clothes care reasons, or because the option is not appropriate for the cycle.
To change a drying option or options you have selected after a cycle has started, touch and select your new setting, then touch again to resume the cycle with the new setting or settings.
Some options may not be available for selection under certain conditions and after particular stages of the drying cycle have passed.
Your dryer takes the guess work out of choosing drying times by sensing the dryness of the load. When your dryer senses that the clothes have dried to the dryness level you have selected, the dryer will automatically finish the cycle.
The dryer has five dryness levels from Damp through to Extra Dry. Choose the dryness level to suit your load depending on how dry you wish for your clothes to be. If you find the load is not dry enough, select the next dryness level up. The higher the level, the longer the drying time and the drier your clothes will become.
Airing/Cool down (Cool)
When the dryer has sensed that the load is dry it will automatically go into a 10 minute airing or cool down cycle. During ‘Cool’ the drum tumbles and cool air is blown through the clothes. This cools the load to reduce creasing if the clothes are left in the dryer.
Cool down mode
There are four drying temperatures you can choose from:
Touch the ‘Dry Temp’ button until the light next to your desired drying temperature is illuminated.
If you wish to minimise wrinkling, select one of the ‘Wrinkle Free’ options. At the end of the cycle, the drum will rotate periodically and cool air will be circulated through the load to minimise wrinkling and creasing. This is particularly useful if you cannot remove the items immediately after the cycle ends.
There are two wrinkle free options:
If you wish to stop the dryer at any stage during the ‘Wrinkle Free’ stage of the cycle, simply touch . You can then open the dryer door and remove your items. Press 'POWER' and turn the dryer off.
Wrinkle Free Option
The ‘Signal’ option automatically defaults to ‘On’ for all cycles. This means a series of beeps will sound at the end of a cycle, to alert you that the dryer has finished. You can turn the ‘Signal’ off by touching the ‘Signal’ button twice (no lights will then be illuminated).
When you select a dryness level above damp/dry and wish your dryer to alert you to remove items once your load reaches the damp/dry stage, touch the ‘Signal’ button once to select ‘Damp Dry’. Ensure ‘On’ is also selected. When your load reaches the damp/dry stage, the dryer will beep to alert you to remove your items, then continue drying until the remaining load reaches the dryness level you selected.
There are a number of indicators to alert you when you need to attend to your dryer, either to clean the lint filter, empty the water tank or to clean the condenser (refer to the ‘Caring for your dryer’ section for more information).
This option enables you to deactivate the buttons on the display panel, except for the 'POWER' and buttons. This option helps prevent accidental button presses.
To turn Keylock mode ON or OFF, at any time when the dryer is powered on:
Touch and hold the button for 2 seconds.
When activated, the light above the button is illuminated.
If Keylock mode is activated and the machine is powered off:
- To turn your dryer on, press the button, then touch and hold the button for two seconds to turn Keylock off. Select your drying cycle, any options and then touch to start the cycle.
The ‘Delay Start’ option enables you to delay the start of the drying cycle from between 5 minutes and 12 hours. Times you can select are 5 min, 15 min, 30 min, 1 hour, then hourly up to 12 hours. This can be useful to time your drying to finish when you arrive home from work, or to start when power rates are lower.
To program a ‘Delay Start’, simply touch the ‘More’ button to increase the delay time and ‘Less’ button to decrease the time or to turn ‘Delay Start’ off. Touch to confirm your selection and start the countdown. Once the ‘Delay Start’ has been started, the time will count down on the digital display in one minute increments, the ‘Delay Start’ light will flash and the light will stop flashing and turn on solid.
if you hold the ‘More’ button down, the time displayed on the screen will increase after every half a second (more convenient than touching the button repetitively). To remove a delay start time once it is counting down, simply touch , then touch the ‘Less’ button to decrease the time to zero. Touch to start the cycle immediately.
We suggest that you avoid using ‘Delay Start’ for damp, non-colourfast items as this may cause dye run to occur.
Customizing dryer cycles
After using your dryer a few times you may discover there are some drying options you prefer for some cycles.
You can program your dryer to remember the drying options you prefer for each drying cycle. For instance, you may want to set the ‘Easy Iron’ cycle to a lower drying temperature or set the ‘Everyday’ cycle so it automatically has the ‘Wrinkle Free’ option selected.
To customize a cycle:
- Press to turn the machine on.
- Turn the dial to select the cycle you wish to customs.
- Touch and hold any of the drying options buttons for 3 seconds. The lights will flash on and off to indicate that the machine is in cycle adjustment mode.
- Select the drying options you prefer by touching the relevant option button.
- Touch to save the selected settings. The dryer will then beep to indicate your customized cycle has been saved.
Touching before pressing ‘Keylock’ will exit the cycle adjustment mode and start the cycle using the settings shown on the display panel.
You can reset your dryer to the default settings it left the factory with:
- Turn the dial to select the ‘Freshen’ cycle.
- Touch and hold the ‘Delay Start’, ‘More’ , the ‘Delay Start’, ‘Less’ and ‘Signal’ buttons together for three seconds.
- Your dryer will now be reset to the default settings.
