Question about Asko T741 Dryers
My condenser tumble dryer has worked fine for 4 of the past five years then despite having an engineer around a couple of times, it keeps cutting out, often within ten minutes of starting the load.. I then have to pull the machine out, press the reset button and wait ages for it to cool.
I have tried all the usual things such as cleaning the filters and cutting the load size. It is located under a counter in the kitchen but is adequately vented as it's worked fine fo four years.
I have noted the following: When the drier turns off, the washing is usually steaming and very little water collects in the water collection tank. Is it possible that the condenser is broken or is there a pump that pumps the water up to the collection tank that could be broken ? If there are checks I could do for this, I'd like to know.
Further, as the next step is to chuck the machine out and start again as I am disillusioned with expensive repaimen who haven't fixed the problem, can anyone tell me where I can get a techical manual for this machine so that I can have a go myself, please ?
Ken from Mecheltec suggests removing condensate sump and pump assembly and servicing it. Clear condensate hoses from lint and debris then carefully reinstall assembly. You should be ok.

Check sensor for fluff. We have asko tumble drier and have had to clear this of fluff many times. Take bottom panel off, as if removing filter to clean. Located on left hand side is a plastic cover, grey, secured by one security head screw. Once screw is out carefully remove circular cover uncliping clips. Inside is a sensor with a plastic cage around it, about size of one pence piece, clean fluff out with toothpick for example. This should do the trick. Good luck.
P.S State the obvious, but make sure the pull out box filter is cleaned with a good wash through with water and not clogged!
