Do not buy this dryer!
Bought the dryer in late 2017 by early 2020 the dryer was having serious issues draining and shutting down all the time. Asko do not respond to calls or emails. The one time that an approved service technician came around they quoted 1800 + to attempt a repair and told us to buy a new dryer as it wasn't worth trying to fix. At $3000 I would expect a premium product that lasts, this dryer did not.
Purchased in August 2017 for $3,000.00.
Be very wary of buying Asko T884XlCHP
I was quite prepared to pay good money to get a large volume dryer for my ski lodge and was recommended the Asko by the retailer who was pushing the virtues of heat pump technology and did pay good money for what I was told was a good product....!
The reality is that this product needs to be sold with a MAJOR DISCLAIMER advising clients that a single load of dry of sheets for one bed or 5/6 towels takes 3.5+ hours to dry which is simply not usable for a larger household.
The length of time this machine takes mean I have no choice to be use a la...
Purchased in May 2016 at 2nds World Physical store.
Leaking cupboard wreaker.
Large dryer that cost $2500.
Bought with Asko pro series washing machine. Built in to cupboards to match in brand new house. Installed once we moved in and used daily.
Good for a while and now leaks water out the bottom of dryer .
All filters clean, pipes hooked up and all everything as it should be according to manual.
Every load all the water ends up running out bottom of cupboard as dryer won’t pump out water into drain as it’s supposed to.
Cupboards all wreaked not to mention the damage it has done internally to my washing machine which...
Purchased in October 2017 at RetraVision for $2,500.00.
Installed this morning and ONE load put in machine.
The machine stopped because the water tray was full and has not gone since it was emptied.
You have to hold the power button in to get machine to run.
Maybe I am missing something that is not in the instructions?

What a rip off!
You would expect a 10kg dryer that is worth $2299 to do the job more quickly and with a larger load. Well that was my expectations! To dry a load of 6 towels takes over 2.5 hours!! Average drying time for any load is between 2.5 hours and 4 hours. I researched this product online and nowhere was there anything saying that it takes this long!
Which means when I come home on the weekend I now cannot get 5 loads of washing dry ready for the next week..
I rang Asko who said "of course, it is a heat pump dryer". I did understand that, but nowhe...
Asko T884XL 10KG clothes dryer rolls sheets into a tight ball and doesn't dry them
More than one sheet at a time does not get dried by this dryer. They get twisted together into a tight ball (really, a cylinder) and only the outside layer dries. This was the case from day one, nearly two months ago. Two service calls and a return of the dryer to Asko have all found "nothing wrong".
For $3000, I got ripped off
I bought this $3000 / 10kg dryer 12 mths ago. I continue to have a door latch problem. The door pops open, then the machine stops during it,s cycle. This problem may happen every 2nd load or once a week. We have to stand at the machine holding the door, upto 20 minutes until the door latches. We had asko service out 4 times in the first 6 mths but all they did was to fiddle with the old latch. Since christmas my wife and I have prevailed with this machine until tonight were I stood holding the door for 40 minutes, until the door latch did catch. I understand why people buy cheap machines as they seam to have as many problems as a $3000 machine. Regards neil
Questions & Answers
Hi ive had this dryer for a few yrs and its been perfect until a few months ago it leaks water everytime i use it. The condenser is cleaned regularly. It is connected for water to go in container. Last night it said overflow and there was only a little bit of water in container. I use it every day and have a lot towels for my swimming dog. Is it possible the dryer has a hairball somewhere?
Mine did a similar thing and leaked water all throughout the cupboard.
Was fixed under warranty and ok since.
Was a faulty pump I think.
My asko dryer leaks water everywhere. All filters and condenser are clean but water leaks out bottom of machine and has now wreaked my cupboard it’s built in to.
Is your drain from the machine blocked/working?
After my first was replaced without working the present one does a great job....tip!...when the door starts opening and turning machine off try sticking it together with electrical insulation tape as no one seems to be able to fix it and it works!
Not blocked at all.
I have removed totally and still same problem. Tried to hook up back to water catching container and no good. No dramas with door, that’s spot on. Just leaking water and now won’t work.
