Question about Asko Dryers

5 Answers

I have an Asko T731 dryer. From the serial number I can see that it was made in 2003 week 32. Since we purchased the dryer, in January of 2004 we have had problems with a blown line fuse -- every several weeks, and now with increasing reguality. The people at the Asko 800 number seem to be aware that there was a problem with this model, but they are holding the line that there is no service note regarding the problem. Their only suggustion was that the problem was caused by power outages. Well we don't get a power outage all that often. Any solutions? We are running through a fuse a week at this point. BTW the problem doesn't seem to be heat related, and the vent line is clear and fairly straight.

    As far as I can tell there is no problem with the 220V power line coming in. Line voltage is correct, and we've had no problems with breakers blowing.

    I've been using Bussmann ABC-15 (replaces 314015) 15 amp fuses. Theses are labled 15 amp fast acting. Should I be using something else? Maybe slow blow fuses of some sort?

    Thanks. Well, there isn't another 220 V outlet anywhere near the laundry (of course...) Please tell me more about the surge protector solution. I am familier with these for computers
    but I have never seen a 220 V high wattage version. Where would I find one? By the way, there was a series related (bad fuse on T731)questions posted back in 2005, but I can't find what the offered solution was beyond getting the dealer to replace the dryer. Do you have any access to this information?

  • pfitzr Oct 31, 2008

    Thanks for the hints. WRT to finding a surge protector at Best Buy -- no luck. What they have is for 110V devices. I'll check up with the appliance dealer where I bought the dryer to see if they have one. WRT to the suggestion to clean the fan -- I'll give it a shot and see. I'll be back with more questions, I'm sure.

You need a voltage regulator which will prevent the power fluctuation and will keep the unit running.

Try a different wall outlet. You can also try connecting it to a surge protector.

If this doesnt help can try using a Voltage stabilser. If you still have the same problem then its definitely some circuitory problem and the issue needs to be addressed by some technician.

But try a different outlet or use a voltage statbilier.

Thanks

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 :)

I have the T731 butterflying dryer. It appears to be locked in the 15 hour time delay. How can I get this to start drying now without the delay?


I believe you have to press down on the start button and hold it till the time it's set at appears. Then you can change the time. If that does not work, then unplug for a minute then plug back in. -Tom

Asko T731 Electric Dryer - where are the fuses on the back of the dryer?


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya.

Before starting...

**Turn off your breaker at the home service panel, it should be a 30amp switch or unplug it from the wall...safety first**

The fuses are at the back located next to where the power cord exit`s the unit. Look for 2 small round slotted caps ( these are the fuse holders/hubs ) either black or gray in color.

With a flat screwdriver fitted in the slot of the fuse hub, turn it a half turn counter clockwise an it should drop out...though it may need to be pulled out if it`s stuck in the holder part.

Replace with a 15amp "slow blow" ( the only difference is the slow blow are filled with sand and aren`t transparent glass tubes but rather gray or white in color ) if the fuse is blown.


You can find these fuses at most brick & mortar appliance part stores or on-line parts vendors such as repairclinic.com, reliableparts.ca etc.

Asko part number is #8058140 and you should replace both. The number may substitue to an in-store number, it really depends on the vendor, just provide your model number and you should have no trouble.

Hope that is helpful. If so please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know what you find or if you require further assitance.

Thank`s for visiting Fixya today and good luck.

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.
