Question about Asko Dryers

1 Answer

Need to put a power cord back on my asko dryer and not sure colo

Not sure of the order the wires go on as there are not any colors on machine wires. (never when I took the cord off did I think I would have to hook it back up but the second used one I bought did not last hardly at all- my older one ran better anyway!) I can't find my manual -(my newer dryer does not look the same inside)

I need to get power to it as the newer one died and we have been out a dryer for months and out of work so I am determined to repair one of them myself as going to the laundry mat is getting old and silly with two dryers here need one too work!
Thanks for the help-
Determined able mom

Never heard of no color wiring,are you in another country?
Try all the combination's with the breaker off.Take a look at where the wires start in the dryer, one wire will be the ground it will lead to a screw for the ground.then you have a fifty fifty chance it will be right just reset the breaker if it is wrong then rewire.
hope this helps

Replacing electrical cord

if you buy a color coded cord and plug then red and black go on thee 2 outer terminals of the power terminal and the white wire goes between these as this is the neutral connection and if it has a green ground wire connect this anywhere to the metal case of the unit, if its a gray cord with no colors then the 2 outer wire on the cord go to the outer terminals on the units power terminal block and the center wire on this cord goes to the center terminal on the unit

Need to change the power corrd to a 4 prong from the 3 prong but the 3 prong cable isnt color coordinated, how do I hook up the new power cord?

The new cord has a green ground wire; two hot wires, which are black and red; and a white neutral wire. Attach the neutral to the middle connector and the two hot wires to either end of the terminal.
In order to safely ground the machine the green ground wire must be securely connected to the dryer frame. There may be a screw on the frame where you can attach the ground.

Asko T700 dryer won't run


Have you checked the 15amp fuses which are located at the back of your Asko dryer ?

That is where I`d start. 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.

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.

I need to change the power cord to my dryer to fit the outlet in my new residence. Is there any specific order to how the tabs hook to the dryer on the back? They aren't color coded.

Always disconnect electricity before beginning this process.

If you are using a 3 wire cord the wires go exactly as you see them. The middle wire goes onto the middle terminal and the outside wires go to the outside terminals which one goes on which side doesn't matter.

All the 4 wire cords I have seen are color-coded. The white wire goes to the middle, the green wire goes to any screw you can reach that goes into the metal case of the dyer. The red and black go to the outside of the terminal block and I usually follow the color code of the interior dryer wiring that already exists. Good Luck.

Wireing an a/c plug to a samsung DV316LES dryer I have Black, White, and Red wires coming out of the dryer. the plug I purchased came with Black, White, and Solid Green wires. I am sure it goes color to...

unless you have an a/c outlet close to your dryer the you wont be able to use an a/c cord. also the cord for an a/c i usually rated for 20 amps and your dryer needs to have a 30 amp circuit.
i would not suggest using this cord as it will overheat and probably cause a fire in your house.
if you think the cord can handle 30 amps, then you need to make sure you hook up red and black to the power sides, white to the neutral and green to ground.
seriously, just go back and get a dryer cord that will match the outlet that is close to your dryer.
draw a picture of what the outlet looks like, ie: the position and angle of the plug slots and go back to the hardware store and find the right cord.
it will work properly and be safe to use.
