Before using your machine for the first time
Do not tumble-dry
Certain materials are sensitive to tumbledrying. Always check and follow an item’s
laundry label. You can read more on page 9,
“Before tumble-drying”.
Note!
When starting the tumble dryer for the first
time or after a long period without use, you
may notice a slight thumping sound. This is
completely normal and will stop after a few
loads.
See the Quick guide on the last page.

Safety instructions
General
• Read and keep the Use & Care Guide!
• Electrical installation, if required, should
be carried out by qualified professionals.
• The machine should only be used for
tumble-drying as described in these
instructions.
• Repairs and maintenance relating to
safety or performance must be carried out
by a qualified professional.
• Damaged mains cables must only be
replaced by a qualified professional.
• Sufficient ventilation is required to prevent smoke from open fires or fumes
from equipment burning other fuels being
sucked into the room.
Installation
See the “Installation” chapter.
Safety
The machine must not be used for drying
items that have been dry-cleaned at home
or fabrics that may contain residues of flammable liquids.
The tumble dryer is protected by an overheating cut-out. This shuts off the machine
if the temperature gets too high.
A float shuts off the machine in the event
of a blockage in the condensed water hose
or if there is a risk of the condensed water
container overflowing.

• or by pressing the main power switch.
• When you want to resume tumble-drying,
simply close the door and press the Start/
Stop button.
• You can also stop a programme by pressing the Start/Stop button for three seconds.
4
Transport/Winter storage
If you need to move your machine or store it
over the winter in unheated premises, then
make sure you drain the condensed water
container beforehand.
Packing material
Sort waste in accordance with local guidelines.
Disposal
When the machine has reached the end of
its service life and is to be disposed of, it
should immediately be made unusable.
Contact your local authority for information
about where your old machine should be
disposed of and recycled in the proper way.
The machine is manufactured and labelled
to facilitate recycling.
Caution
During operation, the back of the tumble
dryer will get very hot. Leave the machine to
cool completely before touching the back.
Child safety
General
Do not allow children to play with the
tumble dryer.
The tumble dryer has a magnetic catch,
allowing the door to be opened from the
inside. The door has a door-switch that automatically stops the tumble dryer when the
door is opened. The tumble dryer does not
start automatically when the door closes
(e.g. if a child closes the door from inside).

Advice and tips before you tumble-dry
Here are some tips that may help you before you begin tumble-drying.
Has it been spun?
Items to be tumble-dried should be spun at
1000 rpm or faster. Better spinning saves
both energy and drying time.
Laundry labels
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 fibres. Garments will be
softer and lighter when tumbled than when
hung out to dry.
Note!
Wear to fabrics in the tumble dryer is insignificant. The fluff that gets caught in the
fluff filter is dust and fibre remnants formed
when the items are used.
Materials that must not 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 lose
their shape or shrink.
And do not tumble-dry...
• materials labelled “Do not dry near heat”,
• garments that have been dry-cleaned at
home,
• foam plastic,
• fibreglass material,
• wool must not be tumble-dried due to the
risk of felting.
8
Tumble-drying
Below are step-by-step instructions to
help you achieve the best possible tumbledrying results.
1
Sort your fabrics
You will achieve the most uniform drying results if the items are the same
material.
Do up zips and buttons, fasten 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 programme
The choice of programme depends
on what you intend to do with the
items after tumbling. The programme
options are Extra Dry, Dry, Normal Dry, Iron
Dry, Timed programme and Airing.
Extra Dry
This programme is for items that are particularly difficult to dry, e.g. jeans with very
thick seams.
Note!
Knit fabrics in particular are prone to shrinkage. Use the Dry, Normal Dry or Iron Dry
programmes for such items. Stretch clothes
back into shape immediately after drying.
Dry, Normal Dry
These programmes shut off the heat once
the load is dry without being “bone-dry”.
The Dry programme shuts off the heat
slightly later than Normal Dry. Use trial and
error to find out what works best. Use these
programmes when you want items to be
completely dry.
Iron Dry
This programme shuts off the heat once
the load is just damp enough for ironing or
pressing.
Timed dry 60 min
The Timed dry programme has a fixed drying time and tumble-dries the load for 60
minutes.
Air fluff 60 min
Use the Air fluff programme when you just
want to refresh, air or soften up items.
5
Select options
By selecting options, you can tailor
drying programmes to suit your own
laundry requirements.
The machine remembers which settings
and options you choose for each programme and uses these
(with one exception
- Delayed start) the next
time you select the programme in question. You
can, of course, change
them again if you wish.
Low temperature
Select or deselect Low Temperature by
pressing the Temperature button.
Once Low Temperature has been selected,
the red field next to the button lights up.
Anti-crease
This option means that the drum will rotate
three seconds per minute for two hours
once the drying programme has finished.
This option prevents the items remaining in
the same position and becoming creased.
A useful feature if you are not able to remove the load as soon as tumble-drying
has finished.
A lighted red field by the button indicates
that the Anti-crease option has been activated.
9
Delayed Start
Select or deselect this option by pressing
the Delayed Start button. The machine will
start the programme 5 hours after you select this option + the Start/Stop button.
A lighted red field by the button indicates
that the option has been activated. If you
change your mind, press the Start/Stop button for three seconds. You can now start the
machine as usual
6
Press the Start button
Drying time remaining
An estimate of the remaining drying time
will be shown in the display within 2 minutes of the drying programme starting. For
example, 1:35 means that approximately 1
hour and 35 minutes remain until the load
achieves the selected level of dryness. If
the Anti-crease option has been selected,
the drum will rotate every minute for 2 hours
after cooling.
If you want to stop or change a
programme.
Press and hold the Start/Stop button for 3
seconds. The red field next to the button
goes out.
Note!
The programme is not affected if the programme selector is changed after the programme starts.
To load or remove washing
If you want to load or remove washing
once you have started the machine, open
the door and the machine will stop automatically. Load more washing, close the
door and press the Start/Stop button.
10
7
Drying programme finished
The text

that the programme has finished.
If the Anti-crease option has been
selected, the drum will rotate every minute
for 2 hours after cooling.
Important!
• Clean the fluff filter after each load.
• Drain the condensed water container after
each load.
Caution!
If the fluff filter becomes clogged, the machine’s automatic overheating cut-out may
be triggered. To enable the machine to be
restarted, the filter must be cleaned and
the machine allowed to cool for around 30
minutes.
Cleaning the fluff filter
1. Grasp the filter handle and pull it towards
you.
2. Pull the filter out of its holder.
3. Open the filter and remove the fluff by
hand.
4. Fold the filter up and re-insert it into its

full to overflowing, the programme is interrupted and
is shown in the display. Empty the container and press the Start/Stop
button to restart the programme. See also
Error Messages on page 16 in the “Troubleshooting” chapter.
Note!
Do not remove the condensed water container while the machine is switched on.
Advice!
As the condensed water is decalcified, it
can be used in steam irons. Pour through a
coffee filter.

Cleaning the outside of the
machine
3. Open the filter and remove the fluff from
all sides by hand. Use a soft dry cloth to
remove any coating.
4. Replace the filter in its holder.
Note!
If you have hard water, the filter should be
washed down with water to get rid of any
limescale deposits.
Dry the filter carefully with a towel.
Clean the outside of the machine and the
programme panel with a mild cleaner. Do
not use any 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.
13
Cleaning the condenser
The condenser should be cleaned at least
three times a year. If you have pets, the
condenser must be cleaned more frequently.
5. Replace the condenser. When reinstalling the condenser, check that it is replaced
in the correct way. The top of the condenser
is labelled “upp”, “up” and “oben”.
1. Switch off the main power switch.

4. Remove the condenser and rinse the
lamellas clean using a hand shower, for
example. Do not poke around in the lamella
springs, as you may damage the condenser. Do not use pointed metal objects during
cleaning.
Note!
Do not put the condenser in a dishwasher.

Troubleshooting
The machine will not start
Check
• that the outer door is properly closed
• that the main power switch is pressed
• that you have set the programme correctly
• that the Delayed Start option has not been
selected. If so, the time remaining until start
will be shown in full hours in the display
(e.g. 5, 4, 3h). To cancel the programme,
see page 10
• that any plug is connected
• that your home’s fuses (circuit breakers)
are intact, swap two circuit breakers. You
cannot always tell from outside if a circuit
breaker is broken
• that the overheating cut-out has not been
triggered (see below).
Error messages
• If F1 flashes in the display, the condensed
water container is full.
Empty the container and restart.
• If F2 flashes in the display, the maximum permitted programme time has been
reached. For remedial action, read “Drying
takes too long” in the “Troubleshooting” section.
Overheating cut-out
The overheating cut-out shuts off the tumble dryer if the temperature is too high, e.g.
because dust is clogging the fluff filter.
• Clean the filter.
• Check also that the condensed water
container is not full and, if necessary, clean
the condenser. See “Care and cleaning” on
page 14.
• The overheating cut-out will reset automatically once the machine has cooled.
Drying takes too long
• Empty the condensed water container
and check that neither the fluff filter nor
the condenser is clogged. See “Care and
cleaning” on page 14.
• Prolonged drying times may also be due
to the condenser dryer being placed in a
room that is too small and the air in the
room (cooling air) being too hot.
• Make sure that the tumble dryer has access to more cold air, e.g. by opening doors
and/or windows.

Installation
Positioning the tumble dryer
The tumble dryer can be positioned as
freestanding or in a stack. 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!
The machine must not be installed behind a
lockable door, a sliding door or a door with
hinges on the opposite side to those of the
tumble dryer.
How to fit the stacker
1. Undo the two screws indicated on the
back of the washing machine.
2. Secure the anti-tilt device using the
screws as shown in the picture.
Advice!
To improve ventilation, leave the door to
the room where the tumble dryer is located
open.
Caution!
Any electrical installation must be carried
out by qualified professionals.
A. Freestanding
The tumble dryer can be positioned beside
the washing machine.
B. Stacking
The tumble dryer can be placed on top of
an Asko washing machine. In this case you
use the stacking attachments that come
with the machine:
2 foot cups. These can be found in a bag in
the drum.
2 anti-tilt devices. These come attached to
the bottom left corner on the back of the
machine.
Extending plates can be ordered from your
local retailer.
18
3. Attach the plastic cups that will hold the
tumble dryer’s front feet to the washing machine’s top cover. This is essential, as once
the tumble dryer’s feet are resting in the
plastic cups you know the dryer is correctly
positioned on the washing machine.
Break off tag A on the cup fitted on the right
side and tag B on the cup fitted on the left
side. Then remove the paper from the selfadhesive surface under the plastic cups.
A
Adjusting the feet
