Question about Asko T761 Electric Dryer
The "power" button will light up when pushed but the menu screen will not turn on and the dryer won't start. I have checked the power cord and replaced the fuses. What next?
There is a little button on the back of the dryer that needs to be reset. It looks like a little black circle, just push the center and you should feel it click. Once you have the dryer running, go outside your house and check that air is flowing freely from the exit. If it is not, you have a clog in your venting or inside the machine itself, and that has caused it to overheat and trip that protection switch. Also, make sure your lint filter is VERY clean. this sounds dumb, but these askos are very picky about that. Take the screen and scrub it with a soft nylon brush with some soap and water. Also, don't use dryer sheets in these as they tend to clog up that screen with an oily residue. If you must use dryer sheets, at least clean that screen with soap and water on a regular basis. If the vent is not clogged and the screen is clean and the flap on the outside of your house is clear, then the machine needs to be disassembled and cleaned out internally if ti keeps tripping that switch. Hope This Helps!
