    re Asko Dryer T712W
    My dryer is drying. It just dries too long, According to Asko manual, the dryer should sense when to stop drying. It does not. It cooks my clothes if I dont open the door manually (which defeats the purpose of the sensor) Both thermostat and motherboard have been changed according to ASKO procedures. Still drying too long. For ex. a damp dishtowel shows 45 minutes to dry!
    Dryer vent is only 12 in long to outside wall and installations was done by professionnal electrician.

Its probably neither of those, its the timmer, Does it have one of those Turn Dials that you use to set it, or is it all electronic with buttons?

If its the later, then never mind.

On the turn style the timmer breaks and wont shut off and you can still hear the " TIC TIC TIC" even after opening the door.

If its electric display then its probably the temperature sensor. If its new, its under warranty and they need to come out and fix it, or get you a new one at no charge.

    Or it could be like the other guy said, It could be a blocked lint/ heat vent, but usually this results in moist clothes and eventually pops a heating coil, but check anyways.



    I would think the technician that worked on it would check for something that simple but hey, no ones perfect.

Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
- If the vent doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat orpocket thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 120 degrees and 160 degrees ( without clothes ). Check that the drum seals are not worn out.
if it over heats
t overheats Usually when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat (read about cycling thermostats in "Drying is too slow," above).

f your clothes get marked or torn in your dryer, check these:

Rollers
Rear seal
Front glides
Front seal
Rollers Your dryer may use rollers, or wheels, to support the rear of the clothes drum. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rollers wear out, you need to replace the whole set.

Rear seal Your dryer may have a felt-like seal at the rear of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, clothes can get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the rear of the dryer interior. When the rear seal wears out, you need to replace it.

Front glides Your dryer probably uses nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn out, they may cause the clothes drum to drop down slightly, which can pinch the clothes between the top of the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the glides wear out, you need to replace them as a set.

Front seal Many dryers have a felt-like seal at the front of the drum. If this seal is worn, torn, or missing, the clothes in the dryer may get caught and torn in the space between the clothes drum and the front of the dryer interior. When the seal wears out, you need to replace it.
if the clothes smell to be burning out If you don't clean out the lint trap frequently, your dryer may have small lint fires inside the cabinet. The smell from these fires can leave a strong odor in the clothes drum.

Also, if there are any solvents, paints, lacquers, etc. in use in the house, your dryer may alter and/or amplify the fumes to an odor unlike the natural fumes given by the solvent, paint, etc.

Here's what to do:

  • First, clean all of the lint from the inside cabinet and ductwork of your dryer.


  • Have a qualified appliance repair technician inspect the dryer for damage caused by any lint fire.


  • Move all containers of flammable liquids at least 50 feet away from the dryer. Gas dryers have a large flame when operating properly and can ignite the fumes of any flammable liquid or gas.


  • Then, try to clear the odor, by running a couple of loads of old rags or towels.

The sensor is not that accurate in distributing heat. It needs to be replaced. It might have been cooked as well.

Unfortunately in the service world there are both unskilled and dishonest people. However, I would first call the service company and complain of the poor service, second call the #800 for service and complain about the service company they sent out. Third, the problem may originally been something as simple as a clogged vent. Did the dryer run feel warm/humid when you opened the door, buy clothes were still wet?

Hello - Since you have previously replaced the control board and confirmed that the high temp sensor is working fine, unit may possibly have a defective sensor, heating element, power supply or a communication problem with the control board. I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. The technician usually warranties their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem.

GLEQ21512ES1 overheating fast


Hello Anne Truhlar - Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately 30 seconds and turn on the fuse for the dryer. Turn on the dryer and select a normal cycle. If the dryer continues to overheat then I suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose and repair the dryer. The unit could possibly have a defective control board, power supply (240V), heating element, sensor or high limit thermostat.

I would think that it would be the lint filter or filter screen... Either way, unfortunately, most manufacturers regard this as a consumable ( non warrantable) part as its life depends on how often you use the machine and how often you clean the filter.. Im not really conversant with US sold F and P product but perhaps on the internet , there may be further info on the model you have. I beleive that F and P ( Fisher and Paykel) New Zealand, joined Whirlpool in USA ??? Perhaps, the machine you have may actually be a Whirlpool...

My gas dryer heats up for 10-15 seconds and then shuts off. I've cleaned out the lint hoping that it would work again but it continues to shut off after 10 - 15 seconds. I did read a post about moisure...


Feel your pain. Unplug wait a minute then plug in. Hopefully it will help. This is what I had to do. Don't know why this works at times...or at least buy us some time. I will never buy another LG product. No one wants to work on them or knows how. I'm on the 3rd mother board of my dryer, purchased dryer in 2006. First mother board it came with....shot...called LG, they sent me with some yahoos that replaced it with a refurbished mother board. Was under warranty until it expired, and guess what. That one needed replaced. Got a new mother board(3rd one in it now)....same problem is starting again. Worked great since 2007 after #3 was put in until now. If it needs #4 mother board eventually.....may just need to buy a whole new dryer and it won't be an LG. Got to get something that repairmen know what to do with. I hope unplugging it solves your problem, otherwise, I'm so sorry. I have the DLE2514W......(the W represents the color, white)

My dryer is flashing "E68" and beeping on the


E68 means a button is stuck on the control board, you can lightly press all buttons and see if that clears the problem. Next slam the door shut as it may be the sensor door latch, then unplug the dryer as it maybe lint built up on the lint trap: remove your lint filter.remove the waffled plastic that covers the lint filter slot. , its inside the dryer, and there's two screws holding it in. Be careful, because there's two wires connected to the metal strip on the bottom edge of it. That metal strip is sensor. Don't drop the screws into the lint filter slot. you might find that a lot of lint has built up around the contacts for those two wires. Carefully clean all the lint and if you have an attachment for you vacuum you may want to use it just be careful and plug back in , and reinstall. Might want to check the vent tube since we are cleaning as it may be restricted. unplug dryer and the last thing is to take the back off and see if the control board itself is damaged or dirty, if it is dusty/dirty with a brush lightly brush it off. If none of the above worked then I would call the company at 1-800- 444-4944. Good Luck and let me know Tim

Dryer will sometimes start to heat, then stops heating altogether.


There are always more parts to replace. From the sounds of it though, it sounds like one of your gas coils are going out. Normal gas dryer opperation is your unit will heat up, cool down, heat up, cool down, etc thorugh the course of the cycle. Usually when one of your coils are going out, it sticks after the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd cycle and the gas will no longer come out. So the cycle will continue just without heat. Another less likely possibility is that you have a restriction in your ventalation causing one of your heat safeties to open and not let the machine heat for most of the cycle. This can generally be checked just by placing your hand under the vent hood outside where your dryer vents to. You should feel air pressure on your hand while the unit is running. If there is not pressure or you are hearinf some whisling noise, it might be restricted in which case you'll need to have your vents cleaned/ repaired. Now since you are going through an extended warranty company, here's a couple other thoughts. They contract companies to provide service to thier customers. Do they have another authorized company in your area that can look at it? Do they have any kind of lemon or excessive repair policy? Many companies will replace a unit after so many repairs in a given time frame.
