Question about Asko T701 Electric Dryer
My Asko dryer stops running when you release the start button. Any ideas? How much am I looking at to get this repaired? Thank you!
It could be that the overheat protection kicked in. When this happens the dryer will start when you push the button but shuts off when you release it. There is also no heat.
There is a reset button on the back of the dryer covered by a rubber membrane. Push that in. If you hear a click, the dryer has reset and should run normally. If the dryer continues to shut off and need reset, there's probably a lint blockage somewhere.

Hi, this is a simple issue here. these switches will fail from time to time. the start switch is unable to hold the circuit, in return, opening it upon release of the button.
Simply replacing the switch will fix this issue. switch is 20 dollars tops.
