Dryer Quick Start Guide
T761/T781
We know you’re excited about owning an ASKO dryer and you’re anxious to get started, so here is a brief summary of the operating
procedures. To get the most of the features of your machine, we recommend that you read your Use and Care Guide.
THE CONTROL PANEL
Models T761 and T781 have ASKO’s state-of-the-art EasyControl™ panel, as illustrated below. To select a program, simply press one of the

Power Button
The Power button turns the power to the machine on and off. When the power is on, the power indicator light glows red. The power
must be on before you can set the programs or start the machine.
Start and Stop Buttons
Once you have selected a program (P1–P4), press this button to start the dryer. If you open the door during a program, the dryer
will stop tumbling automatically. The dryer will remember where in the program it stopped. To continue the program, close the
door and press Start.
You can interrupt a program by pressing Stop for three seconds. If you stop the dryer this way, it cancels the program in progress.
You will have to select a new program and press Start to restart the dryer.

With ASKO’s Sensidry™ system, you need never worry about overdrying your laundry. Just select the proper program for the type of fabric
you’re drying and Sensidry does the rest. Once you select a program, Sensidry monitors the temperature and measures the humidity level.
When it detects the appropriate measurements, it automatically shuts off the machine.

CLEANING THE LINT FILTER
Although the lint in your ASKO dryer will be minimal, the lint filter should be cleaned after each load
to ensure maximum air flow and prevent possible overheating. To clean the filter, follow the steps
below:
1. Grasp the handle and pull it toward you.
2. Remove the filter from the holder by pulling it up.
3. Open the filter and gently brush away any lint.
4. Fold the filter together and return it to the holder on the door.
5. Push the holder in until it snaps into place.
NOTE: We recommend that you clean the lint filter after every load.
EMPTYING THE CONDENSATION WATER CONTAINER (T781 only)
If Model T781 is not installed to pump out the condensed water into a drain or a sink, you should empty the
water container every three to five dryer loads, depending on the spin speed you use when you wash the
clothes. For example, clothes spun at 800 rpm will have more moisture when you take them out of the
washer than clothes spun at 1400 rpm. Therefore, the dryer will have to remove more water.
To empty the container, simply pull it out and pour out the water. This water is clean and can be used to water
plants.
If the container becomes too full, the machine will shut down. To restart the program, empty the container and
press Start. It may be a few minutes before the machine starts because it drains the excess water from the sump before it restarts.
NOTE: Do not remove the water container while the machine is running.
OVERHEATING PROTECTION
The dryer has a protection device that shuts the machine off if the temperature becomes too high. Overheating could occur if the lint filter is
clogged or if the fan or condenser unit (Model T781) needs to be cleaned. If the dryer shuts off during a program on Model T781, first, make
sure the condensation water container is empty. If that isn’t the problem, check the lint filter. Lastly, it could be the fan or condenser unit needs
to be cleaned. See your Use and Care Guide for instructions on how to clean these items.
