Question about Asko T721 Electric Dryer

Dryer wont turn on

I set the dryer to dry. Ran for less than 5 minutes and then it shut off. i fiddled with the breaker.....nothing. pulled the dryer out from the wall and made sure dryer was plugged in...was. So now i dont know what to go. please help! Dryer was working great.  Went to use it this morning, and the machine starts but stops as soon as I release the power button.  The manual says this is the overheating protection activating.  But the dryer sat unused overnight and it is still ice cold.  I clean the filter after each load.  I've only used the machine about 10 times.  I even checked the condenser and it, too, was clean.

Re: dryer wont turn on

The dryer has an overfill cutout if you start and hold in the start button you should hear the pump come on,and pump the water out. then the dryer will start.if it happens again you may have a blockage in the black drain hose take the top panel off and blow down it,or the pump itself could be faulty.(if the dryer is sitting on the floor you have to drain the water into the drawer, if its mounted ontop of a washing machine you can connect the long bkack hose to the sink.

My frigidair affinity dryer wont start it just beeps

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire Affinity dryer, model# FASE7073NW, will not start and just beeps. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dryer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

Dryer is a week old. ran a cycle and dryer turned off. didn't trip breaker. wouldnt turn back on. so turned breaker off for a while then turned it back on. now dryer powers on but for only like 10 seconds...

A week old dryer should have, in its warranty, a condition that you can get them to exchange this for an identical (hopefully working) model free. Do it now, that is a short time window. It's usually one month.

Dryer turns on heats up, shuts down, starts again runs for a bit, then kicks off again

This is the device that keeps the motor from over loading/heating. It's a bi/mwetal strip. Maybe a good cleaning of dryer will help but also you did not say if the motor ran and the heat stopped which could be another type problem. Try different setting on timer such at timed or less dry/more dry.

You vent is plugged very bad. Disconnect the vent tubing and thoroughly clean it out. It will heat and dry like new afterwards guaranteed. These dryers have sensors that shut the burner off if the exhaust is not venting properly. Once its cleared out it will run perfectly again

My Maytag dryer model number MDE5500AYW has lights on, but won't switch settings. It is stuck in time dry at 18 minutes. Yesterday it was on sensor dry 47 minutes. Do I need a new control board inside...

OK, your control board and LED are integrated, so you will need to just replace the control board. I would try a hard reset before replacing the board. Pull the plug or, shut down the appropriate breaker switch for 5 minutes. Re apply power after the 5 minutes are up. if you continue to experience this fault, replace the control board asap.

Whirlpool electric dryer not drying

If the drier drum is still turning I would suspect a separate fuse is open for the heating element. Checking this may require openning the back cover. It may also be a defective or open heating element.

Hello mdonettaYou said,
Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked okay. Any ideas.

yes, try unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker for 5 minutes. Either will due. Some times the system needs to be reset!
If this does not work there are internal fuses that can be replaced!

Let me know how it goes!

Dryer wont turn on

This is usually a symptom of a thermal fuse that has blown. A blown thermal fuse is a symptom of other problems (usually). That is to say that they generally blow for a reason. The most common cause is a dirty dryer and/or clogged vent duct. If it's been a while since you've cleaned your dryer and/or the vent duct, you might want to do so BEFORE you replace a thermal fuse. Or, the problem will persist. If your heating element is in the rear of the dryer, the thermal fuse will be located on the blower fan housing on the left hand side of the dryer. It is white in color. If the heating element is located inside the dryer under the drum, the thermal fuse will be located on the blower fan housing right under the drum in the front of the dryer. The fuse should read a short. If it does not, you need to replace it. It is not resettable. Let me know if you have any further questions. I hope this helps you.
