Asko T781 dryer trips on over temperature

I just moved into a home with a Asko dryer in it. The problem is it trips on over temp and I need to pull the unit out to reset it. I called the previous owner and he said to check the condensate bin, the ventless basket and internal lint screen, all were clean and the condensate reservoir was not full. I had a service tech cone in yesterday and he honestly said he was sure what the problem was but he was going to investigate it. Do you have any clue? Thanks

    I have the same problem. I took the front off and removed all covers and hoses to clean everything out. The air flow through the exhaust is still minimal.
    The only area I didn't get to, because I don't know how, is the heating element. There does not appear to be a removable cover on the inside of the drum and the back of the machine has a lot of nuts and screws that I don't want to remove for fear of not being able to replace it all.
    The repairman wanted $300 to replace belt and clean the machine!?!

    Just moved in and the washer and dryer came with the house. I'm stumped. It trips after just a few moments and when I open it up, steam comes pouring out! It's the first load I've tried to dry and it consists of about 6 towels. We have the owners booklet for the washer (in 4 languages!) but no booklet for the dryer. Water tray is empty and lint trap is free. Any ideas?

The problem is probably that it is much lint in the fan, and/or in the back of the drum, so the air is unable to cirkulate fast enough. OR it can be that you are overfilling it with laundry.

Asko dryers

Akso makes "condensing" dryers (Models T721 and T781) that condense the moisture wich then is directed to a drain. The T701 is a vented style dryer so I'm a little confused.

I have an ASKO T781 Dryer that suddenly will not power up. Any ideas? Someone told me to pull the fuse panel? I do not have the manual available. Any ideas or what tool to use to pull the fuse panel. Also,...

I just had this same problem, The fuses were not attached to anything. I stumbled upon a black button, that looks sort of like a gromet. Push that, it's a reset button. If it clicks, there you go. It could mean something else is wrong, but that should be a starting place.

Asko T780 Dryer Vibrating/Grinding noise

Sounds like a bad roller. You'll have to remove the drum to get at them. Even a free one may make noise at speed. Use high temp grease. Also check roundness. And don't forget the belt tensioner roller, just don't get any grease where the belt touches.

Disabled neighbor was given an ASKO T780 dryer, but it doesn't heat up. What could the problem be so I might be able to fix it for him?

most likely if the dryer does everything except heat up the heating element is bad if you take it apart it will be directly behind the holes inside the dryer

Asko T781 Electric Dryer Doesn't Turn On

Have you reset the cut out on the back? its a little black button that you push in until it clicks. If it does not click, then it probably wasnt the problem. The next most likely cause is a melted fuse holder inside the box on the rear where the power cord goes in. There is a bypass kit available to repair this problem from ASKO, as the fuses are not needed. If you are able to do some simple wiring, you can do this. Otherwise find an AUTHORIZED asko servicer and they will know what I'm talking about. Good luck!
