    Did you check to make sure the side vent had it's lid on it. This machine needs both vents closed.

    This machine has 2 vent holes on it. One on the side and one on the back. Make sure the panel you aren't using is closed. If this isn't the case, I'm pretty sure this unit doesn't have moisture sensors, so it has to be one of the thermal fuses on the top telling it not to heat. Also there is a button on the back you can push if it's popped out. It's black, it's like a little circuit breaker for the unit.

    there isnt a side vent. i dont have the reset button with the red button any more, i have an autmatic thermostat unit button that resets itself. once the dryer resets, tjen i can press tyhe start button. i hsvr to wait about 12 mins. before it cools, then i start all over again.

You probably have a clogged exhaust vent.

SOURCE: What may be the cause of excessive vibration in my

Hi,

One of the most common causes of what you`re describing on an Asko dryer is lint build up or static sheets getting into and on the blower wheel or the blower wheel has been busted some how. To check you`ll need to remove the lower panel so first things first...**Unplug the unit from the source or shut off the power at the breaker panel**

With the power now off, remove the 2 philips (star) or torx head screws at the bottom on either side of the panel. Once that is removed you`ll see a white plastic housing which is the vent/exhaust duct.

On this duct there is a small round cover to the left which provides access to the blower, but you may need to remove a sensor/thermistor held in place (and can be hidden in fact) with black puddy, so you`ll need to observe and handle it carefully. The small round cover will be held in place with clips molded into the plastic, a small flat/spaded screw driver will be required to remove the cover.

Once the cover is removed you`ll know almost immediately if the blower is full of lint (or anything else) and causing an unbalanced or excessive vibrating scenario.

Also check the blower nut/fastener to insure it hasn`t come loose or the blower shaft isn`t cracked or become rounded because it should be in the shape of a D where it slides onto the motor shaft.

That is the most common occurrence with the Asko dryer`s when it comes to vibrating. It can manifest from any number of thing`s though really, such as...worn drum rollers or roller shaft`s. Worn rear drum bearing or belt, and even belt tensioner (idler pulley).

I`ve just explained the likeliest cause with the blower wheel, so try that and let me know how it goes.

Hope that help`s you out. Good luck.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa


If you have already cleaned the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair. It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

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


Hello,

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.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

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.
