Question about Asko T780 Dryer

3 Answers

ASKO T780 dryer automatically shuts down after aprox. 20 minutes

Regardless the programm I choose, my dryer shuts down after aprox. 20 minutes apparently because of danger to overheating. I've checked the filter (clean), the condensor (clean), the rotor (clean), the waterreservoir (empty). I've tried with different loads (light and heavy) but that is no solution either. It keeps shutting down after some time; it is simply starting the programs but not finishing them. The button on the backsite does do it's job, but I cannot understand why. What can I about this? Could it be a fuse or maybe the thing that checks the temperature?

    Hi Crayzeetrayn,

    I've checked the dryer vent (I called it a rotor because I did'nt know how to call it) if you mean the thing in the front, left next to the condensor. It is clean.

    Hi, I'm not sure where to find the vent connected to the duckwork. If it is everything you can find at the front bottom of the machine, then I've checked it. Or is it something only to be reached by taking the topdeck of?

  • irma_nadorp Feb 13, 2009

    I did try the reset switch because this is the one that is interrupting the programs. The machine starts to work every time again. But after cooling down one night for exemple and then starting a new program, it still stops after aprox. 20 minutes again.

    Indeed the sensor was clotted with fluf. I did clean the vent, but never knew that is was a sensor behind the little safetycap. After I cleaned it with the toothpick as indicated, the machine works like sunshine again. So thank you very much!

    Where is the sensor behind the safetycap located?

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.

I had the exact same issue
spoke to an asko service guy
he told me it was a common issue of the lime in the water building up in the fine mesh filter inside the door
U need to take it out and gently rub it with ure fingers in warm soapy water
and the easiest way to see if this is ure issue
hold it up to the sunlight
u should see tiny tiny holes in the mesh if u don't it is blocked

    The vent I am speaking of is the one that the ductwork is connected to .. Be sure to check all of that ductwork and check inside that hole on the dryer

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 t702c stops working after about 5 minutes

If you continue to try to run the dryer after the automatic shut off kicks-in it will shut the cycle down with no flashing lights after the dryer reaches a critical and dangerous temperature. If the dryer is skipping immediately to this step without any flashing lights then call an Asko certified repairman as something may be wrong with the machine. If you have not tried cleaning the condensor, please do this as well. Remove the bottom housing of the dyer, move the two red handle to the right, and pull out the condensor unit. Wash it under warm/hot water using a bathtub or shower and you will see lint and dust come out by the heapful. Replace the condensor unit, wait about 30-45 minutes, and then try restarting your dry cycle.

Asko T780 Dryer Vibrating/Grinding noise

Sounds like a bad roller. You'll have to remove the drum to get at them. Even a free one may make noise at speed. Use high temp grease. Also check roundness. And don't forget the belt tensioner roller, just don't get any grease where the belt touches.

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

The display and programm buttons are dead

sounds like you need to push the reset button on the lower left rear of the machine, unless thats the button you are already talking about. There are also some fuses on the back of this dryer that tend to fail. You have to call an ASKO servicer to install a factory bypass kit to repair this problem. Replacing the fuses will not solve the problem, as its the fuse sockets that melt and fail. Hope this is helpful!

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!
