Asko T701 stopped running.


Test the wirings to control panel and the switch.
Try also a different outlet, and eventually check with a tester the power cord.
Also the switch must be tested.
If the wirings are ok then the whole control panel can be replaced.


If you want to buy parts you find them here.

My dryer won't start. When i activate the start switch I hear a hum like the motor is bound up.. I opened the top and the drum is not stuck and the belt seems in good shape. The unit is about 4 years...


check the blower wheel sometimes objects get caught in it not allowing it to spin. If it is clean open the dryer door push and hold the door switch and push start while it is humming rotate the drum. if it starts to spin then you need a new motor it will run you probably 150 - 200 dollars

When I push the start button, the dryer does not come on, but it just hums.


Check to see if you can rotate the drum. if you cant then you need to check the blower wheel. If you can then hold the door switch in and start the dryer. if it starts to hum rotate the drum while holding the door switch in. if it runs on it own after you rotate it then you need a new motor

Dryer motor hums but does not turn when start button is pushed


If you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.

Too many rpms, how do i slow my dryer down? t731


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The first thing which comes to mind is this, have you brought this machine into north america from overseas ?

I ask because this is a problem which can manifest from the motor operating on 60hz cycle but designed for a 50hz cycle.

The drum will actually spins too fast hence the items don`t tumble but rather stay pushed to the perimeter of the drum...thus not drying.

If you open the door and run the dryer, the drum on an Asko T731 dryer should rotate at 52rpm. I use a piece of tape on the drum to keep count.

Let me know what you find and we`ll go from there.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Hi, The dryer drum does not start when the start button is pushed unless I rotate the drum to a specific position.


When we had this problem the solution was to replace the motor, the electric coil in the motor had a flat spot which would not make contact and let the motor start. By moving the drum you are advancing the motor away from the flat spot. Hope this helps.

Asko T700 loose belt, access from front?


I think you must replace the belt and the tensionarm. It MUST be done from the backside of the machine... Remove the backpanel, and the drum, change the tensionarm, and put the drum into the machine again. Put on the new belt, and mount it together again. Be careful for sharp edges! Hope this helps :-)
