Question about Asko T701 Electric Dryer
Dryer does not run. Light turns on but pressing the start button does nothing (normally yo could hear the relay click and the dryer start - now nada.) Fuses are good, reset button at rear is not tripped.
Washer is getting power thru the build in outlet. Im stymied.
have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the
drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the
idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.
If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:
If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.
If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.
Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.OR you can use this link :

Test the wirings to control panel and the switch.
Try also a different outlet, and eventually check with a tester the power cord.
Also the switch must be tested.
If the wirings are ok then the whole control panel can be replaced.
