Important safety instructions
Grounding instructions
A) Grounding instructions for a grounded,
cord-connected appliance
In the event of malfunction or breakdown,
grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by
providing a path of least resistance for electric
current. This appliance (Canadian market only)
is equipped with a cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The
plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet
that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Warning!
B) Grounding instructions for a
permanently connected appliance:
This appliance must be connected to a grounded
metal, permanent wiring system, or an equipmentgrounding conductor must be run with the circuit
conductors and connected to the equipmentgrounding terminal or lead on the appliance.
Note
This manual does not cover every possible condition and situation that may occur. Use common
sense and caution when installing, operating, and
maintaining any appliance.
Interrupting a program
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative or personnel if you are in doubt as to
whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do
not modify the plug provided with the appliance
(Canadian market only). If it will not fit the outlet,
have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
You can stop a drying program by:
• Opening the door. The drum will then stop automatically.
• Pressing the main power switch.
• Press the Start/Stop button for three seconds.
To reduce the risk of fire, this appliance must be
exhausted outdoors or the equivalent. Do not exhaust into a chimney, wall, ceiling or concealed
space in a building.
Please sort waste materials in accordance with
local guidelines.
When you want to resume tumble drying, simply
close the door and press the Start/Stop button.

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.

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.
This program shuts off the heat once the load is
just damp enough for ironing or pressing.
2

4
Turn on the main power switch.
Open the door, load the items,
and then close the door
Select the program
The choice of program depends on what
you intend to do with the items after drying
them.
Guidelines as to what specific programs
can be used for.
Auto Heavy
Auto Delicate
Auto Normal
Auto Iron Dry
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.

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.
2
1
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 filter.
• 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 the lights to the right of the Start/Stop button
are flashing, the maximum permitted program
time has been reached. Read "Drying takes
too long" in the "Troubleshooting" chapter to
find out what to do.

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.

Installation instructions
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.

Connecting the exhaust duct to the dryer
Note
You will need to purchase a UL-CSA-approved
4-inch ridged metal exhaust duct. The dryer is
delivered with the stub pipeattached to the rear
exhaust outlet, but the exhaust duct can be attached to either the right or left exhaust outlet.
Asko dryers have a
“T-stile” exhaust vent that

To connect the exhaust duct to the rear
outlet
To connect the exhaust duct to the rear outlet,
follow the steps below:.
1. Push the duct onto the stub pipe and secure it
with a clamp
2. With the duct attached, insert the stub pipe into
the hole. It should snap into place.
3. After you push the dryer into place, check for
kinks in the duct.
Note
Excessive duct length and too many bends can
impede drying performance. We recommend that
you cut off any excess exhaust duct and run the
duct with as few bends as possible. Make any
necessary bends as gentle as possible.
Note
Maximum duct length of 60 feet and 4 elbows is
allowed. Subtract 4 feet of duct for each 90° elbow.

To connect the exhaust duct to the left or right
side outlet, follow the steps below:
1. Using a flathead screw-driver, turn the exhaust
outlet cover you plan to use to the right or left
to align the tabs holding the cover in place.
2. Remove the exhaust outlet cover.
3. Remove the stub pipe from the rear exhaust
outlet and place it in the outlet you plan to use.
4. Push the duct onto the stub pipe and secure it
with a clamp.
5. With the duct attached, insert the stub pipe into
the hole. It should snap into place.
6. After you push the dryer into place, check for
kinks in the duct.
7. Use the exhaust outlet cover you removed from
the to cover the rear exhaust outlet.
Warning!
To reduce the risk of fire, this appliance must be
exhausted OUTDOORS or the equivalent. Never
cover the end of the dryer stub or exhaust duct
with anything to catch lint, except for UL approved
vent basket.
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).
Note
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.
Note
Maximum duct length of 60 feet and 4 elbows is
allowed. Subtract 4 feet of duct for each 90° elbow. If more than 20 feet of duct is needed, the
diameter must be increased to 6” or 8” (152 mm
or 203 mm).
Note
When installing in warm climates (77° F and
above) with high humidity levels, do not route the
air exhaust duct upwards.
