Advice and tips before you tumble dry
Here are some tips that may help you before you
begin tumble drying.
Materials that should not be tumble
dried
Have the clothes been spun?
Items to be tumble dried should be spun at 1000
rpm or faster. Higher spin speeds save both
energy and drying time.
Materials that can be tumble dried
This symbol means that the material is not
suitable for tumble drying. Certain materials may
melt or become a fire hazard if exposed to heat
and others can lose their shape or shrink.
And do not tumble dry
This symbol means that the material is suitable
for tumble drying. Fabrics best suited to tumble
drying are cotton fabrics, terry cloth, and synthetic
fibers. Garments will be softer and lighter when
tumbled than when hung out to dry.
•
•
•
•
•
NOTE!
Static electricity
The tumble dryer does not cause any significant
wear to fabrics. The lint trapped in the lint filter
consists of dust and fiber residues which gather
when the items are used.
To reduce the risk of static electricity in the laundry
after tumble drying, you can:
• Use fabric softener when washing.
• Wait five minutes after the drying program ends
before opening the door and removing the
laundry from the dryer.

garments that have been dry-cleaned at home.
plastic foam.
fiberglass material.
wool must not be tumble dried due to the risk
of piling.
NOTE!
If the door is opened during the program, the
program will be interrupted and will return to the
start. The clothes may be too damp or too dry
as a result.

Auto Iron Dry
WARNING!
To reduce the risk of electric shock or injury to
persons, read the "Important Safety Instructions"
section before operating this appliance.
This program shuts off the heat once the load is
just damp enough for ironing or pressing.
Below are step-by-step instructions to help you
achieve the best possible tumble drying results.
1
Sort your fabrics
You will achieve the most uniform drying
results if the items are made of the same
type of material. Close zippers and fasten buttons
or belts; sort the items and adjust load and
temperature.

Turn on the main power switch.
Open the door, load the items,
and then close the door
Select the program
Guidelines as to what specific
programs can be used for.
Auto Heavy
This program is for items that are particularly
difficult to dry, such as jeans with very thick
seams.
NOTE!
Knitted fabrics in particular are prone to
shrinkage. Use the Auto Normal, Auto Delicate,
or Auto Iron Dry programs for these items.
Stretch clothes back into shape immediately
after drying.
Auto Normal and Auto Delicate
These programs shut off the heat once the load
is dry but before it is "over dry". The Auto Normal
program shuts off the heat slightly later than Auto
Delicate. Use trial and error to find out what works
best. Use these programs when you want items
to be completely dry.

Care and maintenance instructions
Cleaning the lint filter
Cleaning the outside of the machine
The lint filter must be cleaned after each load. If
you have very hard water, this can cause
limescale deposits in the lint filter. Check for any
limescale deposits when cleaning the lint filter
and, if necessary, wash the filter by hand.
Additionally, the filter should be cleaned with hot
water, detergent, and a soft brush quarterly.
1. Grasp the filter handle and pull it toward you.
2. Pull the filter out of its holder.
Clean the outside of the machine and the program
panel with a mild cleaner. Do not use solvents,
as these can damage the machine. Do not hose
down or spray the machine with water.
NOTE!
Do not allow dust to accumulate around the
machine. Keep the area around the tumble dryer
clean and cool; dust, heat, and moisture prolong
drying times.
3. Open the filter and remove the lint from all
sides of it by hand. Use a soft, dry cloth to
remove any deposits.
4. Replace the filter in its holder.
NOTE!
If you have hard water, the filter should be
washed with water to remove any limescale
deposits. Use a sponge and a little dishwashing
detergent if necessary. Dry the filter carefully
with a towel. If you cannot remove the limescale,
you can buy a new filter from the retailer where
you bought the tumble dryer.

Troubleshooting
The machine will not start
Drying takes too long
Check
• that the door is properly closed.
• that the main power switch is on.
• that any plug is connected.
• that the fuses (circuit breakers) in your house
are intact. Flip the dryer breaker off and then
back on to make sure. You can not always tell
from the outside if the circuit breaker has
tripped.
• that the overheating cut-off has not been
triggered (see below).
• Check that the lint filter is not clogged (see the
"Care and maintenance" chapter).
Overheating cut-off
The overheating cut-off shuts off the tumble dryer
if the temperature is too high, caused by lint
clogging the lint filter, for instance.
• Clean the lint filter.
• The overheating cut-off will reset automatically
once the machine has cooled down.
14
The laundry does not dry, or is too
dry
• The door has been opened while the program
is running, which disrupts the moisture
monitoring function.

Installation instructions
Stacking
WARNING!
WARNING - Risk of fire.
Install the clothes dryer according to the
manufacturer's instructions and local codes.
Do not install a clothes dryer with flexible plastic
venting materials. If flexible metal (foil type) duct
is installed, it must be of a specific type identified
by the applience manufacturer as suitable for
use with clothes dryers. Flexible venting materials
are known to collapse, be easily crushed, and
trap lint. These conditions will obstruct clothes
dryer airflow and increase the risk of fire.
The tumble dryer can be placed on top of a ASKO
washing machine. To stack the dryer, you need
the stacking attachments (foot cups and anti-tilt
brackets) supplied with the machine. You will find
two foot cups in a bag in the drum and two anti-tilt
brackets attached to the bottom left corner at the
back of the machine.
To reduce the risk of of severe injury or death,
follow all installation instructions.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE
REFERENCE.
Positioning the tumble dryer
The tumble dryer can be freestanding or stacked.
Remember that the tumble dryer produces heat
and should therefore not be located in a room that
is too small. If the room is very small, drying will
take longer due to the limited quantity of air.
WARNING!
• Clothes dryer installation must be performed
by a qualified installer.
• For proper ventilation, the machine should not
be installed behind a door.
• The tumble dryer's toe kick ventilation must
not be blocked by a rug or the like.
NOTE!
If the unit must be installed behind a door should
be louvered. To improve ventilation, the door
where the tumble dryer is located should be left
open when the dryer is in use.
Freestanding
The tumble dryer can be positioned beside the
washing machine.

Installation instructions
Built-in
Install in a closet
ASKO's front panel controls make it possible to
install the washers and dryers in a closet. Make
sure there is a ½” (12mm) minimum clearance
between units and cabinet or wall. To ensure
proper ventilation, we recommend louvered doors,
particularly for condenser dryers. Otherwise there
must be ventilation openings in the door. See
illustration for minimum ventilation openings:
ASKO dryers can be installed beneath a cabinet
or worktop with a minimum height of 34” (864
mm). There must be a gap of about 1/2” (12 mm)
all around the machine, including between the
rear edge of the machine top panel and the back
wall. The opening width must be at least 24-1/2”
(622 mm). The condensing models work best
when they have good air circulation. Install the
dryer so the condensed water will continuously
flow into a drain or sink, you will need a drain
outlet behind the unit. The maximum drain height
is 40” (1016 mm).
The height adjustment for the dryer is 33-1/2” to
34-1/2” (850 mm to 876 mm). Do not raise it
higher than 34-1/2” (876 mm). Hole
measurements are from center of hole.
How to assemble the stacking kit:
1. Undo the anti-tip device.

Installation instructions
2. Remove the two screws indicated on the back
of the washing machine.
6. Push out the knock-out hole on the back of the
dryer (you don't have to completely remove
the knockout, just fold it up far enough for the
stacking bracket to fit inside the slot) using a
hammer and screwdriver.
3. Secure the anti-tip device using the screws as
shown in the picture.
7. Push the tumble dryer in under the metal
brackets. At the same time, keep the front edge
raised by 0,4" (10 mm) to 0,8" (20 mm).
4. Attach the plastic cups for mounting the tumble
dryer’s front feet to the washing machine’s top
cover. This is essential, as only when the
tumble dryer’s feet are resting in the plastic
cups can you be sure that the dryer is correctly
positioned on the washing machine.
Break off tab A on the cup fitted on the right
side and tab B on the cup fitted on the left side.
Then remove the paper from the self-adhesive
surface under the plastic cups.
8. Lower the tumble dryer’s front feet into the
plastic cups and adjust the dryer to ensure that
it is balanced.

5. Fit the plastic cups so that the "tags" marked
with arrows are against the front edge or side
edge of the cover and press them firmly onto
the cover. Then break off the remaining tabs.
Adjusting the feet
Screw the feet in or out so that the tumble dryer
is steady and balanced on the floor or on the
washing machine if stacking. Then tighten the
lock nuts.

Connecting to a ventilation duct
You will need a UL-CSA-approved, 4-inch ridged
metal exhaust duct. If a flexible duct is used, it
must comply with the Outline for Clothes Dryer
Transition Duct. Subject 2158A and maximum
length of 2.4 m (8 feet).
The more bends and the longer the duct, the
less air will circulate through the machine, which
will impede drying performance. We recommend
that you cut off any excess exhaust duct and run
the duct with as few bends as possible. And
make any necessary bends as gentle as
possible.
To connect the exhaust duct to a
ventilation outlet, follow the steps below:
1. Connect the exhaust duct to a ventilation
exhaust fitting or to a discharge through the
wall.
2. Secure the duct joint to the outlet stub on the
machine.
3. Run the duct with as few bends as possible to
the point of discharge.
