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.
NOTE!
You can stop the tumble dryer by pressing the Stop
button for three seconds or by opening the door. In both
cases the programme is stopped and starts from the
beginning if restarted. If you do not want to restart the
programme then immediately remove all laundry and
spread it out to allow the heat to dissipate.
MATERIALS THAT CAN BE TUMBLEDRIED
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!
The tumble dryer does not cause any significant wear
on fabrics. The lint that collects in the lint filter consists
of dust and fibre residues 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 can 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.
• plastic foam.
• fibreglass material.
• wool must not be tumble-dried because of the risk of
felting.
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.
Customer Care Center, 1-800-898-1879, www.askona.com

TUMBLE DRYING
SORT YOUR FABRICS
WARNING!
You will achieve the most uniform drying results if the
items are made of the same type of material. Do up zips
and buttons, fasten belts, sort the items and adjust the
load and temperature.
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.
Press the main power switch until the display lights. Open
the door, load the items and then close the door.
SELECT THE PROGRAMME
Programme selector
Display window
Main power switch
Options buttons
Start
Stop
Select a programme by turning the programme selector. The selected programme is shown in the display window. Use the
option buttons to select any options.
Guidelines as to what specific programmes can be used for:
Auto Heavy
Program with the maximum temperature. This program is for
items that are particularly difficult to dry.
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.
Auto Normal and Auto Delicate
These programs end automatically when the load is dry. The
Auto Normal program leaves the laundry slightly more dry
than Auto Delicate.
Auto Iron Dry
This program shuts off the heat once the load is just damp
enough for ironing or pressing.
Jeans
Program for jeans and clothing with very thick seams.
Gentle program for synthetics.
Program intended for large and small loads of thick terry
cloth, such as towels and bathrobes.
8
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. 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.
NOTE!
When using the Timed Dry program with a program
time that is too long, the garments can become “overdry”. This can cause items to shrink or wrinkle and
feel rough to the touch. 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.
Synthetic
Terry cloth
Down
Select the program time by pressing the + and - buttons.
A program time between 15 minutes and 3 hours can be
selected and each button press changes the time by 15
minutes.

finished. If the Anti Wrinkle option has been selected, the
drum will rotate for three seconds every minute for two
hours after the program is finished.

INSTALLATION
How to assemble the stack:
WARNING !
Risk of fire.
Install the clothes dryer according to the manufacturer’s
instructions and local codes.
1. Undo the screw on the back of the ASKO washing
machine as shown in the figure.
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 that is UL approved 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.
To reduce the risk of of severe injury or death, follow all
installation instructions.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE
REFERENCE.
2. Secure the anti-tilt device using the screws as shown
in the picture.
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.
WARNING !
• Clothes dryer installation must be performed by a
qualified installer.
• For proper ventilation, the machine should not be
installed behind a door.
3. Take the other anti-tipping bracket from the bag and
attach it on the dryer with two screws as shown in the
figure.
• 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, the door
should be louvered. (please see door ventilation
requirements in the Built-in chapter). To improve
ventilation, the door where the tumble dryer is located
should be left open when the dryer is in use.
Freestanding
4. Place the two rubber feet on the front feet of the dryer.
The tumble dryer can be positioned beside the washing
machine.
Stacking
The tumble dryer can be placed on top of a ASKO
washing machine. In this case you use the stacking
attachments (foot cups and anti-tilt devices) that come
with the machine. Two rubber feet and two anti-tipping
brackets are supplied in the bag found in the drum of the
dryer.
