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?
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.
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 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.
And do not tumble dry
•
•
•
•
•
materials labeled "Do not dry near heat".
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!
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.
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.
Backlighting
Two minutes after the drying program finishes the
backlighting on the display and option buttons
enters energy saving mode.

Operating instructions
Warning!
To reduce the risk of electric shock or injury to
persons, read the "Important Safety Instructions"
section before operating this appliance.
Below are step-by-step instructions to help you
achieve the best possible tumble drying results.
1
Sort your fabrics
Auto Normal and Auto Delicate
These programs shut off the heat once the load
is dry but before it is "bone-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.
Auto Iron Dry
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.
2
3
4
Turn on the main power switch.
Open the door, load the items,
and then close the door
Select the program
You select a program by turning the program selector. The name of the selected
program is shown on the display. Select the desired options and press the Start button to start
the tumble dryer.
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.
This program shuts off the heat once the load is
just damp enough for ironing or pressing.
Timed Dry
The program length you choose depends on what
you intend to do with the items after drying them.
Use trial and error to find out what works best.
When you use Timed Dry to tumble dry a load of
mixed fabrics, some of the garments may remain
damp. Tumble dry any damp garments for a further 30 minutes or so using the Timed Dry program.
Specify the program time by pressing the + button.
You can choose a program time between 30
minutes and 3 hours. Press the - button to reduce
the program time in 15-minute intervals. The
symbol for time lights beside the selected time.
Note!
When using the Timed Dry program, garments
can become "over-dry" if you have selected too
long a drying time. This can cause the items to
shrink or wrinkle and become rough. Synthetic
materials can also become charged with static
electricity.
Air Fluff
Use the Air Fluff program when you just want to
refresh, air out,, or soften up items.
Specify the program time by pressing the + button.
You can choose a program time between 30
minutes and 3 hours. Press the - button to reduce
the program time in 15-minute intervals. The
symbol for time lights beside the selected time.

Delayed Start
Selecting Options
By selecting options, you can tailor a drying
program to suit your requirements. The
machine remembers which options you choose
for each program and uses them (with one exception – Delayed Start) the next time you select the
same program. You can, of course, change this
if you want.
Temperature
You can choose Temperature Low with all programs except Air Fluff.
• Select Temperature Low by pressing the button
under the symbol.
• The lamp above the symbol lights when Temperature Low is selected.
First select which program you want to use and
then select Delayed Start by pressing the + button.
The display shows Delayed Start in whole hours.
Press the + / - button to select a delayed start of
1 to 24 hours. The symbol for Delayed Start lights
beside the number of hours. Press the Start button. The machine counts down 1 hour at a time
and starts after the selected delay. This option
cannot be used with the Timed Dry and Air Fluff
programs.
Time Saver
You can choose Time Saver with all programs
except Air Fluff. The program is shortened by
about 12 minutes.
• Press the button under the symbol.
• The lamp above the symbol lights when Time
Saver is selected.
Anti Wrinkle
This option means that the drum will rotate for
three seconds per minute for two hours after the
drying program has finished. This option prevents
the clothes from lying in the same position and
getting wrinkled. This is a useful feature if you
cannot take the laundry out as soon as the tumble
dryer finishes. Cannot be selected with the Air
Fluff program.
• Select Anti Wrinkle by pressing the button under the symbol.
• The lamp above the symbol lights when Anti
Wrinkle is selected.

Drying program finished
Remaining drying time
An estimate of the remaining drying time
will be shown on the display a few minutes after
the drying program starts. For example, 1:35
means it will take approximately 1 hour and 35
minutes for the load to dry. If the Anti Wrinkle option has been selected, the drum will rotate for 3
seconds every minute for 2 hours after the program is finished.
The actual remaining time may be longer than the
estimated time shown on the display. The remaining time is then shown as "0:15" until the laundry
is sufficiently dry. If you selected Time Saver, the
display will show "0:05" instead.
Stopping or changing a program
Press and hold the Stop button for three seconds.
The text "END" appears on the display
when the program is finished. If the Anti
Wrinkle option has been selected, the drum will
rotate for 3 seconds every minute for 2 hours after
the program is finished.
Important!
• Clean the lint filter after each load.
Caution!
If the lint filter becomes clogged, the machine’s
automatic overheating cut-off may be triggered.
In order to be able to restart the machine, you
must clean the filter and allow the machine to cool
down for around 30 minutes.
Cleaning the lint filter
Note!
1. Grasp the filter handle and pull it toward you.
The program will not be affected if you change
the program selector after the program has started.

You can stop the tumble dryer after starting a
program by opening the door. Load more laundry
or take out the items you want, close the door,
and press the Start button. A new estimate of the
remaining program time will be displayed after a
few minutes.
3. Open the filter and remove the lint by hand.

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 the machine is not programmed to start at
a specific time (e.g., 13.30)
• 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 and the condenser are
not blocked. See the "Care and maintenance"
chapter.
• Prolonged drying times may also be due to the
tumble dryer being located in a confined space
or room that is too small, causing the air to
become too hot.
• Make sure that the tumble dryer has access
to more cold air, by opening doors and/or windows, for example.
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 filter.
• Check that the condenser is clean. Clean it if
necessary. See the "Care and cleaning"
chapter.
• The overheating cut-off will reset automatically
once the machine has cooled down.
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.
Error messages
• If "Max Program Time" appears on the display,
the maximum program time has been reached.
Read "Drying takes too long" in the "Troubleshooting" chapter to find out what to do.
• If "Clean lint filter" appears on the display,
clean the lint filter.
• If "Clean condenser" appears on the display.
See the "Cleaning the condenser" section of
the "Care and cleaning" chapter for remedy
• If "Thermistor Fault" is shown on the display.
Call the Customer Care Center.

Installation instructions
A. Freestanding
WARNING!
The tumble dryer can be positioned beside the
washing machine.
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.
B. Stacked
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-tip
devices) that come with the machine: You will find
2 foot cups in a bag in the drum and 2 anti-tip devices attached to the bottom left corner at the back
of the machine. Extension plates can be ordered
from your local retailer.
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.
Caution!
For proper ventilation, the machine should not be
installed behind a door.
Caution!
The tumble dryer's toe kick ventilation must not
be blocked by a rug or the like.
Tip!
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.
Caution!
Clothes dryer installation must be performed by
a qualified installer.

Installation instructions
C. Built-in
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).
Notes
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.

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.
How to assemble the stacking kit:
1. Undo the anti-tip device.
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" (10mm) to 0,8" (20mm).
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.

Grounding through the neutral conductor is prohibited for new branch-circuit installations, mobile
homes, recreational vehicles, and areas where
local codes prohibit grounding through the neutral
condutors. The grounding link on the dryer must
be removed for all 4-wire installations.
These Electrical Connection instructions provide
for installing the dryer in the following situations:
3-wire connection where local codes permit
grounding through the neutral. 3-wire connection
plus separate grounding connector where local
codes do not permit grounding through the neutral.
