If you have a condensate tank that fills up too much the float inside the pump housing will shut the dryer off also.

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...

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.

Macmarkus :)

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.

My asko T721 dryer won't start. If I hold the start button down it will work, but the second I let go of it the dryer stops. It was running fine yesterday and then it stopped and now I can't get it...


the start button is bad. you will have to get it replaced take the model and serial# and go to your local appliance part store and they should have one.

Asko T721 dryer. Support rollers started to fall to bits (dryer making bumping sound as it rotated) so I bought a new set and replaced them. Not a single electrical connection was removed bar the door...


  • If you took the drum out and took the belt off you may have put the belt on wrong as there is a switch under the drive or idler pulley that must be pushed on from the pressure of the belt on the pulley. Also go and make sure both breakers are ok in the breaker box as it runs on a 220 volt sys. and if one is tripped this type of thing can occur.
  • Good luck and please rate me if this helped! thanks again for choosing fixya
