Digital display screen

The digital display screen provides feedback on how long the drying cycle has to go. If you have programmed a ‘Delay Start’, the time remaining until the cycle will start will be displayed here, along with any messages to help you with the overall running of your dryer (eg user warnings).


Digital display screen

Time to go

Your dryer displays approximately how many minutes the cycle you are running has remaining if you have chosen one of the Time Dry cycles. If you have chosen an automatic cycle (ie not ‘Time Dry’) the word will appear on the screen until it reaches the cool down phase, at which time the dryer will display how long the cycle has left to go.

Please be aware that a number of factors can influence the overall cycle time, eg the fabric type of garments, load size, the wetness of the load, etc.


Time to go

Progress lights

The progress lights indicate what part of the cycle the dryer is currently on (‘Dry’, ‘Cool’ or ‘End’). All three lights are on at the beginning of the cycle. The light for the current part of the cycle flashes, and each one goes out when that part of the cycle is complete.


Progress lights

Keylock

Keylock can be used to lock the buttons on your dryer. This will avoid accidental button pushes. For more detail please refer to the 'Drying cycle options' section.
