Question about Asko Dryers
It was the reset switch at the back of the unit. Pushed it in, heard the “click”, and now the dryer works normally again. It must have recently overheat to trip the switch so I cleaned out the filters and made sure all was ok. Thanks for the help Cousin-Jeff and Kjetiledv! ??

Bad contact on the unit's relay would be my guess, but I don't have a schematic handy to confirm.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
