Question about Asko T701 Electric Dryer

1 Answer


The vent for the dryer is situated in a patio roof at the same level as the dryer. We llive in a cold climate with alot of snow. Can this be a problem when using the dryer, as the dryer is not working well. Could the vent be blocked with ice? Often I find water on the floor. It take many hours to dry a load of clothes. It there any solutions that you can suggest?

It is possible that water is leaking back into the vent and finding a low spot in the tube. This can partly block the vent and cause the puddle. You'll have to investigate this. Then, go to the hardware store and get a dryer vent cover that matches your line (should be 4 inch) and install it. These covers open when the dryer exhaust pressure pushes on them...Make sure its installed vertically and kept free of ice.

No matter what settin the dryer is on my clothes will only get a little warm, but won't dry. It won't heat up as usual.Had a load in there for a few hours yesterday. They are still damp. When dry clothes...

You vent could be the problem. Snow blocking the vent can cause the dryer heat to shut down rapidly. Make sure your vent is open to the outside. Get some windex and clean them moisture sensors inside the machine. If a film developes on them then moisture cannot be detected by the control. It might think the clothes are dry and shut her down.

Water under dryer after use. cleaned exhaust lint in it was wet. should i insulate exhaust tubing.


Dryer would be either leaking from vent or due to condensation. The vent may either be blocked. The water is coming from the clothes you have dried in the dryer and it has no where to go.
You need to dismantle the vent and clean it, replace it with new vent. The dryer may now be consuming more time to dry the same load of clothes. By correcting the venting problem you will solve the water problem and shorten your wash day and save on electricity as well.

Another issue is condensation which usually appears on the dryer vent pipe colder climates. As the warm air from the dryer is vented to the outside, it must be protected from the cold temperatures outside. If your dryer vent pipe is not properly insulated, the air that is being vented out will turn into water when it comes into contact with the cold pipe outside. This results in condensation and dripping water. To resolve this, you must insulate your dryer vent pipe along its entire length. This will ensure that the hot air from the dryer does not undergo temperature fluctuations, and no water will leak into the vent pipe. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Dryer not drying due to no heat. We just had recent heavy snow and i have roof vent so i thought that may have been the problem. After checking further, the problem is due to no heat coming out. It tumbles...

since this is a gas dryer turn it on and listen for 30 seconds for a clicking noise. That will be for the burners ignitor. If no clicks are heard the ignitor is at fault

My LG Tromm dryer is taking two cycles to dry clothes. They are just not drying completely with one cycle.

make sure that the vent system is clear all the way to the outside. I've seen bird nest in these vents as well as just plain lint build up.
You should feel alot of air coming out when the dryer is running.

GE Profile dpsr473ewoww timer doesn't work and heat level is low

We should address the heat problem first. If your dryer complaint is "heat seems low" or taking "too long to heat", this is commonly confused for other problems. When in fact, you may really have a "ventillation problem". Do you feel (with hand) alot of hot air pressure coming out the back of the dryer or house vent-line (for dryer)?

I would disconnect and clean the dryer exhaust vent/duct (at wall and machine). Then, while leaving the vent-line disconnected temporaily, test and run your dryer. You may see an signficant improvement.

Does it heat up better?
Do you feel alot of hot air and pressure coming out the back of the dryer?
When connected; do you feel alot of hot air pressure coming out of your house dryer vent?

Dryer is not drying clothes

chances are not na problem with dryer, runs for a bout a min and shuts off sounds normal for an empty dryer, the problem is probably where the exhaust leaves the roof, .roof vents have installed from factory a screen to prevent things from entering when not in use. problem is that screen clogs with moist lint and prevents proper air flow. go up and check that vent remove screen you should be fine
