Question about Asko Dryers
My asko dryer model 7005 runs but is not heating the drum. I alresady checked the two fuses in the rear. Thanks
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.

Testimonial: "It was the fuse."
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

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?

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 :)

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly.
