ASKO T731 Dryer

We have had several service calls on this dryer to solve the following problem, none have been sucessful however.
Dryer just does not dry towels etc., you need to run it 3 times to get them dry. I'm told that if the dryer is disconnected from the vent, it works fine. But the vent has been triple checkd, is only about 6 feet long and works perfectly? We have checked the different modes like "enegry save" etc. and have it properly programmed for the highest heat setting. Any suggestions?

The heating element , the vent and the thermic switches must all be tested to see if any of them is defective.

    i am already thinking of a defective thermal cut off.

    one pc is a high limit which cuts off at around 400 degrees Fahrenheit ( small one ) and the other one is a limiting switch ( big one ) which operates around 350 degrees fahrenheit. this could be the problem. it switches off right away even though it is not yet 350 degrees F.

    tnx again,

Too many rpms, how do i slow my dryer down? t731


Welcome to FixYa.

The first thing which comes to mind is this, have you brought this machine into north america from overseas ?

I ask because this is a problem which can manifest from the motor operating on 60hz cycle but designed for a 50hz cycle.

The drum will actually spins too fast hence the items don`t tumble but rather stay pushed to the perimeter of the drum...thus not drying.

If you open the door and run the dryer, the drum on an Asko T731 dryer should rotate at 52rpm. I use a piece of tape on the drum to keep count.

Let me know what you find and we`ll go from there.

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

Dryer overheats and shuts off- vents have been cleaned and button on back has not reset

Common problem.
You probably need to clean
your dryer vent. Dryer vents
should be cleaned every couple of years to
prevent them from being clogged with lint. You can check the air-flow by going outside where the vents terminate. What's probably happening is on sensor dry, there's a moister sensor that tells the machine to shut off when there's no moister. The hot is is being pushed back into the dryer and confusing the sensor. That's why it's working on timer dryer because that option bypasses the moisture sensor.

I'm pretty sure that's it. Good luck.
