tried to use the dry only but the machine always fills with water What am I doing wrong?
Expert:  Daniel replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for that.

To select a dryer only setting on this then you need to tur the dial to either number 11 for full heat or 12 for low heat or 13 for a wool dry.

Then you need to turn the dryer knob which is the smaller one on the right and turn this to either a timed setting or a sensor setting.

Then press start.

Now the first thing it does is actually fill with water for a bit as this is used for the condenser so thats normal. It should only fill for a few seconds and then stops.

Then give it a few minuites and then the dryer should kick in from there.

Try that and that will get the dryer going from there.

Just wondering how you got on with the dryer as ive not heard back from you and the question is still open.

Do you still need help on this?
