Asko T701 Dryer - Dryer Start Button

This has happend once before and for a 5 min job/service call it cost $80.00. When we push the start button the dryer starts but once we release the button the dryer stops. th last time I believe it was a reset somewhere in the dryer but not 100% sure. The user manual is not very helpfull with these kinds of issues. Your assistance would be appreciated.

There is a reset (overheat) button in the back of the dryer. My manual states that this switches off the tumbler if the temperature is too high... need to clean the filter and reset the switch by pressing the rubber disc on the back of the machine.

However, this issue was just the beginning of my problems with the T7005... have had the switch replaced, rollers replaced and now being advised that the motor needs replaced too. Although the Asko marketing quotes a "20 year" lifespan, mine is at 10 years now. Probably will choose another Asko as my cabinetry is built around these machines. Good luck!

This would have to be your door latch, in my opinion. The door simply is not holding in the button.

Asko t701 dryer won't start

If yourdryer is not starting then it is your motor. To determine this there is a trick you can try. First, put a piece a tape over the safetyswitch on the dryer. Take one hand andspin your drum of your dryer as your press the start button. If it takes off, then there is a bad spot onthe motor. Another thing is to try checkto see if you are getting 220 Volts to you outlet by taking a volt meter set at250 volts. Take the red leg of the voltmeter to the one side and the black leg to the other side. If the volt reader reads 220 then you aregetting the proper voltage. Finally, ifyou are getting 220 volts then it is your dryer heating elements. On a 220 volt for the dryer one leg is forthe motor and leg is for the element.

Runs for 2 mins. then stops, push reset button & will run for 2 minutes & stops again

How long have you had the dryer? It sounds like it is overheating, and the most likely cause is accumulated lint. You can check this by removing the round plastic covers on either side panel. Just rotate them and they will pop out. Clean out any lint you see in the air channels and replace the covers.

Also check your ducting - it may be partially or fully blocked by something. You could test this by disconnecting the ducting, then running the dryer to see if it still shuts off. (Prepare for some loose lint flying out in this event.)

Asko Dryer stops running when you release the start button.

Hi, this is a simple issue here. these switches will fail from time to time. the start switch is unable to hold the circuit, in return, opening it upon release of the button.

Simply replacing the switch will fix this issue. switch is 20 dollars tops.

Check the two fuses on the back. I had one burn out on me. Also there is a reset button on the back in the very centre (it is a rubber button).
