What do I need to know before setting up my tumble dryer

Important things to check before installingClick to Expand
  • Make sure the tumble dryer is fully installed before plugging the power cord into the socket.
  • Check the tumble dryer for any damage before installing.
  • If the product appears damaged, please contact your nearest Samsung Customer Service Centre.
  • Do not move the product by yourself, if possible.
  • Take care with the edges of the dryer as they can be sharp.
  • Do not install the dryer where it could be exposed to frost. Cold water may damage the product.
  • Use the product indoors only.
  • Do not place the dryer on one side when lifting it and do not move the dryer in such a way that the internal parts shake. This may result in damage to the internal parts of the product.
Before using your productClick to Expand
  • Check if there are any accessories remaining inside the drum.
  • Plug in the power cord just before operating the product.
  • Do not block the air inlet hole of the cooling grill at the front of the dryer.
  • Do not place inflammable objects near the dryer.
  • Keep the surroundings clean.
  • Keep the dryer level with the ground.
  • Do not remove the adjustable levelling feet of the dryer.
  • External ventilation is not required because the dryer has a condenser which condenses and processes air inside the dryer. Therefore the dryer can be installed and used in any location where the temperature is between 5 and 35 degrees centigrade, unlike a conventional dryer that requires an external exhaust system.
Location ConsiderationsClick to Expand

Because the dryer has a condenser, external ventilation is not required. Therefore, the dryer can be installed and used in any location where the temperature is between 5 and 35 degrees centigrade, unlike a conventional dryer that requires an external exhaust system.

 

However, to operate safely and properly, your new dryer requires minimum clearances of:

 

Sides – 25 mm

Rear – 51 mm

Top – 25 mm

Front – 470 mm

 

If both the washing machine and a dryer are installed together, the front of the alcove or closet must have at least 465 mm unobstructed air opening.

Electrical ConsiderationsClick to Expand

Electricity

 

The electrical requirements are AC 220~240 V / 50 Hz.

 

  • Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether your dryer is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with your dryer – if it doesn’t fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

 

  • To prevent unnecessary risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury, all wiring and grounding must be done in accordance with local codes, or in the absence of local codes. It is your responsibility to provide adequate electrical services for your dryer.

 

Grounding

 

Your dryer must be grounded. If your dryer malfunctions or breaks down, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for the electric current.

 

Your dryer comes with a power cord with a three-prong grounding plug for use in a properly installed and grounded outlet. 

Please note: Never connect the ground wire to plastic plumbing lines, gas lines, or hot water pipes. Improperly connecting the equipment-grounding conductor can result in electrical shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are unsure if the dryer is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the dryer. If it does not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. If the product is not grounded, there is a danger of fire or electric shock.
