Here's the answer:
The dryer has a thermo protection "fuse" that pops-out when the lint filter is not cleaned and air will not flow properly. When the airflow is restricted the dryer gets too hot and the "fuse" pops. Then it will not run unless you stand there and hold the start button in. As soon as you stop pressing the button the dyer stops running.
Clean the filter ESPECIALLY the "internal" filter. This one is behind the lower skirt of the machines face. There are two Torex head screws (T20) to be removed and the skirt comes right off.
Inside you see two red handles that you turn to open the filter door. Open the door and pull out the filter. It is a long metal finned box. Take it to your bathtub and run a ton of water through both ends to remove the lint inside. You'll be surprised at how much.
O K now let's "fix" the "fuse". Here it is likely you will need to pull the machine away from the wall. The fuse is a black plastic button about the size of a penny. It sits in the center of the machine's backside. It faces up a bit and if you have clearance you can reach your arm over the machines top and press it "in" with a finger. It clicks when you do so. This part is a no brainer. The dyer will now start properly.
The hard part to all of this is pulling the machine away from the wall since like me you probably have it sitting on top of an Asko washer. Take your time. You can do it.

It is quite common for lint to cover the blower on these units, making it impossible for the dryer to move any air.
1)remove the lower panel. you will need a T20 driver for this and may need to tip the dryer slightly to the rear
2)remove the left part of the blower plenum. this is held by 3 plastic tabs and a T15 screw
You will now see the blower wheel, it is a squirrel cage type. Check for lint buildup, broken vanes, or string/thread wrapped around the shaft.
if there is no problem with the blower then there is another reason you are not moving air. let me know if this helps

SOURCE: asko dryer blows fuse
Hi, there are a number of possibilties to why it blows a fuse, and since you've recently transported the unit that increases the number of things it usually may be, unfortunately making it harder to diagnos. I would start by checking the fuse holders themselves. The only way to really check them however is to replace the holder. The reason being this, even under normal use the fuse "hub" and "holder" wear due to metal fatigue. The holder has a small spring in it which doesn't apply enough force to allow the fuse to "seat" or contact properly in the "hub" and in turn creates added resistance ( heat ), greater resistance equals greater amperage and "poof" hence the fuse blows as soon as you try and start the unit. Of course other things may have been damaged during the move such as the heater. Try starting it on a "air dry" ( no heat ) cycle. If it doesn't blow a fuse you know it is related to the heater, contactor, ( what Asko refer's to as a relay switch ) or wiring to and from the heater. Hope this was helpful to move you forward. Let me know what you find and if I can assist you further I certainly will try. God knows I've seen alot of these Asko appliances ha ha ! **Sorry if this appears crampy writing and bunched together, I'm on my iphone and it's my only source to the internet at the moment.** Good luck, macmarkus :)

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!
I understand that you are having temperature issues within your Frigidaire laundry center. I see that you feel changing the thermal limiter may fix your issue. That could help or it could be a possible issue with your element, water valve, or in home water supply. You may want to check and make sure the dryer vent is not clogged or restricted that could cause long dry times. With the water supply you may be able to run the sink closest to your washer in order to help boost the amount of hot water that becomes accessible inside of your washer. I hope all this information is useful for you. -Matt
