Advice and tips before you tumble dry
Here are some tips that may help you before you
begin tumble drying.
Have the clothes been spun?
Items to be tumble dried should be spun at 1000
rpm or faster. Higher spin speeds save energy
and reduce drying time.
Materials that can be tumble dried
Static electricity
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!
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.
You can stop the tumble dryer by pressing the
Stop button for three seconds or by opening the
door. In both cases the program is stopped and
starts from the beginning if restarted.
NOTE!
If you do not want to restart the program,
immediately remove all laundry and spread it out
to allow the heat to dissipate.
The tumble dryer does not cause any significant
wear on fabrics. The lint trapped in the lint filter
consists of dust and fiber residues formed when
the items are used.
Materials that should 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 can lose their shape or shrink.
And do not tumble dry

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
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.

Start
Stop
Select a program by turning the program selector. The selected program is shown in the display window.
Use the option buttons to select any options.
Guidelines as to what specific programs
can be used for:
Auto Heavy
This program is for items that are particularly
difficult to dry.
NOTE!
Knitted fabrics in particular are prone to
shrinkage. Use the Auto Heavy, 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 end automatically when the load
is dry. The Auto Normal program gives slightly
drier laundry than Auto Delicate.
Program intended for large and small loads of
thick terry cloth, such as towels and bathrobes.
Down
Gentle program that dries down items completely.
Can be used to dry up to three pillows or one quilt.
Timed Dry
The most suitable program time depends on what
you intend to do with the items after tumble 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.
This program shuts off the heat once the load is
just damp enough for ironing or pressing.
Select the program time by pressing the + and buttons. A program time between 30 minutes and
3 hours can be selected and each button press
changes the time by 15 minutes.
Jeans
NOTE!
Program for jeans and clothing with very thick
seams. Delayed Start can be selected as an
option.
When using the Timed Dry program with a
program time that is too long, the garments can
become "over-dry". This can cause items to
shrink or wrinkle and feel rough to the touch.
Synthetic materials can also become charged
with static electricity.
Auto Iron Dry
Synthetic
Gentle program for synthetics. Delayed Start can
be selected as an option.

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. Use the two foot cups found in
the document bag included with the machine and
the two tip guards attached to the bottom left
corner of the back of the machine.
How to assemble the stacking kit:
1. Undo the anti-tip device.
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.
2. Remove the two screws indicated on the back
of the washing machine.
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.

cups can you be sure that the tumble 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.
6. Push out the knock-out hole on the back of the
tumble 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 a screwdriver.
7. Push the tumble dryer in under the metal
brackets. While doing this, keep the front edge
raised by 0,4" (10 mm) to 0,8" (20 mm).

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).
