Question about Asko T780 Dryer

1 Answer

Asko T780 Stopping after a few seconds.

So, my dryer has been messing up on me. Every time I start it will stop after about 15-30 seconds and I have to restart to make it dry again. The fault indication says "overflow." It was lasting longer than this before, as the other day it would go for a couple of minutes before I had to restart. This is a horrible problem for me and I would like a simple solution if there is one. Thanks.

Re: Asko T780 Stopping after a few seconds.

It sounds like you have a condensing dryer. These condense the water into a pan in the back, and then the water is pumped down the drain. If you are getting an overflow, it means the pan is full of water and the controller is shutting it down to prevent it from leaking on the floor. Most likely cause is a bad drain pump, which is a bit of a bear to change as it is in the back behind the rear wall in the lower right hand corner. The other option is that the drain line could be pinched or clogged, especialy if the unit was moved just before the problem started. Hope this helps!

Where is the reset button on my dryer

The only reset on a dryer that I know of is your house breaker.

Keeps blowing 15 amp fuses

your dryer element is shorted to the element housing which is the same as ground and this will blow the fuses,remove the elements electrical connections and isolate the connections, and now if the 15amp fuses don't blow then you know the element is the problem

I have an ASKO T760 Dryer that continually overheats and then shuts down. I have had a service tech out twice - once to clean the vent and element housing and a second time to clean the "thermister" but...

Check the sensor inside the condenser unit "cage". I read that you can clean inside the little cage with a toothpick. I'm having the same trouble, and plan on trying this before I throw in the towel and purchase a new dryer.

My asko T760 dryer shuts down after a few minutes. It starts again after hitting reset button on back. I read a similar problem was fixed by cleaning the sensor behind the safety cap fixed the problem, but...

Remove bottom panel. The condenser unit is on the left side. Open the section by undoing the clips, and look inside the little "cage". That's the sensor. Remove any lint using a toothpick and you should be good to go!

ASKO T780 dryer automatically shuts down after aprox. 20 minutes

Check sensor for fluff. We have asko tumble drier and have had to clear this of fluff many times. Take bottom panel off, as if removing filter to clean. Located on left hand side is a plastic cover, grey, secured by one security head screw. Once screw is out carefully remove circular cover uncliping clips. Inside is a sensor with a plastic cage around it, about size of one pence piece, clean fluff out with toothpick for example. This should do the trick. Good luck.

Disabled neighbor was given an ASKO T780 dryer, but it doesn't heat up. What could the problem be so I might be able to fix it for him?

most likely if the dryer does everything except heat up the heating element is bad if you take it apart it will be directly behind the holes inside the dryer
