Most dryers are 220 so they can produce the amount of heat required to properly dry clothes. I would Not recommend trying to convert the dryer to 110 voltage. This may cause you alot of unwanted problems. I would find a Qualified electrician to install a 220 outlet at the location of the dryer .

SOURCE: Using dryer in 220V country
There are two systems in use in the states
110v dryers are available that fit a standard 11v 15a socket
110/220v fit the oversize 'dryer' sockets, and they are two 110v phases 90 degreees apart
the motor runs of a single phase 110v.
there is 220v between the 'outside', the active lines of the two phases, at any time, but it is not useable to provide mechanical power as a single service, due to the complicated shape of the wave form when you add out of phase voltages together, but is ok to drive the heaters, they have no mechanical efficiency requirement
A 2 phase 110v heater it means 3kw can be supplied without a 30 amp circuit
but it becomes difficult to use a single phase 220-240v transformer to provide 2x110v 90degree 2 phase current unless you specially buy one in. .
High power applications in 220-240v are generally supplied by 415v 3 phase 60deg supplies,
Any transformer would be onsellable at the end of your posting, to your replacement, who would doubtless be in the same boat as you, with a heap of 'stuff' that needs to run.
UK Aus NZ may be sources of transformers, or dryers to suit.
check with Australian UK NZ suppliers as well as local Indian ones, as those countries are also nominal 240v single phase home suplies and they may have (1) the dryer, or (2)the transformer to suit the 110 2 phase dryer

Hello paulehni, welcome to Fixya.
First things first, have you checked the 15amp fuses which are located at the back of your Asko dryer ?
**Turn off your breaker at the home service panel, it should be a 30amp switch**
That is where I`d start and focus your attention. They are at the back as I said 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, amresupply.com, reliableparts.ca etc. 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.

Start by unplugging the machine and take it outside if possible.
get the screws out and remove the rear cover
Go ahead and get the front off next so you can remove the blower housing
Take the filter out and a couple screws then grab the back of the control with
your left hand and use a putty knife to release the top on each side
That smaller fuse at the top blows with a blocked vent
