Question about Asko T741 Dryers

Asko Drier T741, Panel powers up, Press start Trips House Circuit

Hi,

We have Asko T741 Tumble drier, which has served us well for 7.5 years. I have had to take it apart more times than I care to remember to sort various things.

Recently we returned home to find drier had stopped, with control panel lights on as normal, but cloths not fully dried. When we press the start button which is lit as normal, we here the click as normal, as if the motor for the drum is about to start, but then the house circuit breaker trips.

It sounds like either an open circuit or a wire shorting against something like the chassis. Is it possible that the heating element might be loose or broken and be shorting against the bodywork.

Any experience or first hand knowledge would be most helpful.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,



    Problem sorted ! Three wire spades attached to pump near air vent at back. Earth spade had become bent down towards one of the grey wire spades which was causing a shorting out. Bent spade back up and insulated with tape to make double sure.



    All working fine now.

SOURCE: Drier does not tumble but it still heats.

Hi,

Sound like the belt being broken or slipping badly, burn out motor, or worn support parts.

  • Dryer have a belt that rotate the drum, If the belt worn out or broken, it can not move the drum then you just need to replace it.
  • You can check motor by hearing buzzing sound, if the belt has the problem. If you do not hear any sound from the motor then you may have to replace it.
  • Try to move drum manually (by hand), if it is hard to turn then problem with the idler pulley, glides, or drum rollers.
I hope this will solve you problem

Good luck and have a nice day

Zanussi TC485W condenser tumble drier trips fuse when switched on


I had the same problem when I moved into my new house and upgraded the dryer. Its most likely the ground wire. Best to get a multimeter and test everything. If your not able to do that. You should call an electrician and have him check the wiring. Where he may need to run a new ground to your fuse box.
thanks,
Nathan

Hoover HDV 7 FM tumble drier. The drum is not turning (its making a loud buzzing noise like its trying to get going) and the filter light is on, although that is free from fluff. Is it time for a new drier...


sumanth m 's answer may well be correct because I have the same dryer and it has the same problem. I got a massive electric shock off mine and so I think the buzzing is a protection measure against a short circuit

Hi, I have the Asko dryer T721. It's about 6 years old and is starting to emit a gas smell when it is on. It also seems to be taking a lot longer to dry. I have followed the manual to clean it and it works...


Umm, i think its time to say goodbye to your drier, i had a drier, when it got past the 4 year mark, it made a weird smell, then it kind of set itself on fire, call asko if you can, ask them....

Asko T741 - Thermostat keeps cutting out


Ken from Mecheltec suggests removing condensate sump and pump assembly and servicing it. Clear condensate hoses from lint and debris then carefully reinstall assembly. You should be ok.

White knight 767 tumble drier


If the rug was very heavy you could have burnt up the motor. If it will restart after it cools off, replace the motor and clean out the vent system.

Good luck.
