Can I stack my Indesit tumble dryer onto my washing machine?

Indesit tumble dryers are designed to be fitted onto the top of some of our Indesit washing machines. This stacking process must only be completed using one of our genuine stacking kits.

To establish exactly which stacking kit you require or to purchase call our spare parts department on 0344 822 5225 or visit our store.

How do I clean the fluff filter?

To clean your Indesit dryer filter simply open the door of your appliance and look for the fluff filter (located in the bottom of your door opening).

Pull out the filter and clean the fluff build up. If there is a large quantity of fluff you may use a vacuum cleaner to remove this.

We recommend you clean this filter out each time you use your dryer to ensure your machine works efficiently.

For further advice we recommend checking your user manual – you can also download your user manual here.

How do I empty my water container?

Failure to empty the water container can result in your Indesit machine not heating (your clothes may still be wet at the end of the drying cycle).

To empty your water container, simply pull the container out towards you and remove it fully from the dryer.

Empty all the water collected, then refit the water container, ensuring that it is pushed fully back into position.
