Go reset your circuit breaker. Even if it didn't pop out, reset it.

If a dryer is not working at all that's not good! But it doesn't mean you need to go appliance shopping just yet. It may be something very simple like a broken door latch, a bad door switch or even a broken door switch actuator, in a dryer there is a tab thats sticks out of a hole in the wall that allows the dryer to run only if the door is shut, other models may have button that protrudes out of the dryer and when the door is shut, this allows the dryer to run. These switches go out from time to time, also if a dryer is full of lint build-up over time this will cause the dryer high limit or fuse to blow. The fuse is located near where the blower is in most cases. When the air in the dryer gets way too hot the fuse/hi-limit will blow and the house wont burn down.

Hi There, Sounds like there is a relay switch that may be faulty, the power should latch on when you press the start button, I am unsure of this model type, but usually there is a small PCB inside the unit behind the facia, remove the top to expose it, and you can either replace the PCB or replace the relay the latter being cheaper but more work as you will have to reflow and solder the relay

SOURCE: asko 7005 dryer is making a strange sound while

All dryers have to have a way of allowing the tumbler (that's the thing you put the clothes in) to turn freely, not all of them are the same tho,some use bearings, some use slides,others use rollers. Over time these rollers will need to be oiled,the slides will get thin and start metal to metal contact causing a noise, The rear bearings will then start to make their way to china and cause the tumbler to rub into the heating element and OUCH! These things will cause the motor to prematurely DIE! Its best to examine the dryers, rollers, and slides when you first hear the noise, but who does?

SOURCE: I have a 7005 asko dryer and it is not drying

Hi, Sorry you have had to wait so long for an answer or possible solution. Hopefully it's not too late. There are two things to look for on an Asko dryer that is heating & tumbling but not drying ( since you've indicated the lint screen has been cleaned ) 1) a clogged vent...however this doesn't seem likely since you have heat & a poor vent usually trips the manual hi-limit reset on the heater housing in back. 2) a loose or broken exhaust blower wheel...this IS most likely and I've come across quite a few. The squirrel cage type blower has a "D" shaped shaft which fits to the shaft of the motor and is held there via a single nut. Over time or use, the blower will stripe the "D" shape shaft which enables it to not move the exhaust sufficiently, hence the items do not dry properly or as they once did. You can chrck this by pulling the access panel off followed by the plastic covering ( exhaust housing covers ) to expose the blower wheel. If it spins freely and independant of the motor, you'll need to tighten it or, more likely need to replace it. Hope this was helpful in solving your problem. Thanks for coming to "fixya" and let me know if I can assist you further. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

Why is an Asko 7304 dryer running hot, so much so it melted fuse holder?


GOD IS still GOOD !!!!
DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

My asko dryer 7005 works but there is no heat. Do you think the heating element needs to be replaced? Thank you


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermostat. When the thermostat 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, if thermostat reads continuity then please get back to me if you have any other questions.

7005 dryer will not start when i push the start button


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

I don't know how far you've gone since posting here four hours ago at FixYa but I can tell you 2 of the most likely reason your Asko 7005 dryer will not start.

The first place I'd direct you, would be at the back of the dryer to check the fuses, there are two 15A - 240V slo-blow fuses. In fact both possibilities will be confimed or dismissed at the back of the unit.

If you look at the back as I alluded to by the power cord you'll see two small gray disc/button looking items, these are the fuse holders. You should see this...

i.e.

.de6a143.jpg
**Be sure to turn off the power to the dryer or unplug it from the wall before performing any service suggested here please...safety first**

To access and check the fuses, you'll need to remove the holders. To do this requires only a flat screw driver, or even a butter knife and a multi-meter or "OHM" meter to check them.

(Alternately you can switch the fuse with a known good fuse to verify if it is blown )

Insert your tool of choice into the slot in the holder and turn it 1/4 turn counter-clockwise (right) and the holder should be in the position to remove...it may require some giggling to get it out as they have been known to get "stuck" from heat.

Once out this is what you should be presented with...

i.e.

e8b960b.jpg

If you remove this fuse from the holder and measure the continuity, you'll know if it is any good.

The other possibility I spoke of is the hi-limit cut out thermostat. It is also located at the back of the dryer.

This is what to look for...
