Bad contact on the unit's relay would be my guess, but I don't have a schematic handy to confirm. AmanStino 3 USB ports Car charger with 1 Type port AmanStino

SOURCE: Asko T700 dryer won't run

Hello,

Have you checked the 15amp fuses which are located at the back of your Asko dryer ?

That is where I`d start. They are at the back as I said located next to where the power cord exit`s the unit. Look for 2 small round slotted caps ( these are the fuse holders/hubs ) either black or gray in color.

With a flat screwdriver fitted in the slot of the fuse hub, turn it a half turn counter clockwise an it should drop out...though it may need to be pulled out if it`s stuck in the holder part.

Replace with a 15amp "slow blow" ( the only difference is the slow blow are filled with sand and aren`t transparent glass tubes but rather gray or white in color ) if the fuse is blown.


Hope that is helpful. If so please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know what you find or if you require further assitance.

Thank`s for visiting fixya today and good luck.

SOURCE: Asko Dryer stops running when you release the start button.

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.

SOURCE: start button does not work on our Asko t720 dryer

if you get a light on the main power switch, then it might be overheat cut-off switch wich has been activated. This is located outside on the back of the machine. a rubber button aprox in the middle, you must push this, and hear a 'click'. it might be a solution.

bjsouth Most likely the problem with your dryer is bad motor. It is not repairable and has to be replaced. If you feel you can do it yourself, let me know and I'll help to buy new motor and provide you with instructions how to replace it. Gendos...post back

SOURCE: Asko T720 clothes dryer -

hi
The drum of the dryer is usually turned by a motor-and-belt assembly. There are two very clear signs that the belt is malfunctioning: You can easily spin the drum by hand when the dryer is off, or you hear a heavy thumping sound coming from the drum when the dryer is running. Here's how to test and replace the drum belt:

Step 1: Locate the belt by removing the back or front service panel. Depending on the type of dryer you own, you may have to prop up the drum to keep it from sagging. Don't let the drum hang; the bolts that hold it in the cabinet could be damaged. Don't remove any more parts than necessary.

Step 2: Identify the belt. The old belt may be threaded around the idler pulley and motor drive shaft. Draw a diagram showing how the pulley is installed so you'll be able to replace it properly. If the old belt is worn or frayed, but not broken, leave it around the drum as a pattern for positioning the new belt; cut the old belt and remove it when the new belt is in position.

Step 3: Remove the old belt from the pulleys and stretch the replacement belt into place. The new belt must extend around the dryer drum and the pulleys. The trick is to align the belt on the drum with the pulleys -- the ribs on the new belt go against the drum.

Step 4: Once the belt is aligned, turn the drum by hand, if possible, to make sure the belt is tracking. You may have to reassemble part of the cabinet to do this.

My asko t721 dryer is one week old and i do not have a manual.it stopped in the middle of a cycle. it had 3 bath towels in it.. it starts when i push the button but will not stay on for more than a few...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description I`d direct you to first check the hi-temp cut out at the back...if you haven`t already.

It will look like this on the Asko dryers...

7995fe6.jpg

If you push this to reset and the unit works, great. I would keep an eye on it though since the hi-limit typically trips for a reason such as a excessive long vent or flex vent being used ( stay away from flex venting ) plugged lint filter, plugged vent ot partially plugged etc.

If it doesn`t run after-wards or it`s not tripped, you`ll need to investigate further...if necessary.

Keep me posted on your progress or what you find and I'll help in whatever manner I can. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

T700 asko dryer runs if you hold the start button but cuts off when you let the button go, any suggestions?

Take the lint filter and clean it under some warm water and soap as they do become plugged with wax over time due to fabric softener and static sheets...when present/used regularly

If it doesn`t run after-wards or it`s not tripped, you`ll need to investigate for a faulty heater element. This is quite involved, so we`ll cross that bridge when you get there...if necessary.

The dryer will not stay on the hot setting for very long, it will shut itself off after about 5 mins. it will stay on for the other 2 heat setting but not the hot setting. please help


You need to check your high limit switch with it located on the vent pipe on the back of the system. The limit switch is saying that your Dryer is getting to hot when it may be or may not be. Most of the time it is not getting to hot. Just when it notices heat it will shut itself off. The other thing that i recommend is that you clean your lint trap and vent pipe all the way to outside.

Asko dryer model#7005 when i start the dryer i push the start button and let it go it does not stay on. If i hold the start button down the dryer will stay running.


Hi There, Sounds like there is a relay switch that may be faulty, the power should latch on when you press the start button, I am unsure of this model type, but usually there is a small PCB inside the unit behind the facia, remove the top to expose it, and you can either replace the PCB or replace the relay the latter being cheaper but more work as you will have to reflow and solder the relay

Asko Dryer stops running when you release the start button.


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.

Our Asko dryer (T720) has begun to make a heavy thumping noise, even if empty. (Sounds like a single wet & heavy object is in dryer)


Usually the drum rollers wear on that model making a thumping noise. The asko is a tough machine to work on. You may need a technician to service it.
