Question about Asko T781 Electric Dryer

3 Answers

The machines heat sensor keeps tripping, turning the machine off.

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!?!

I have the same heater reset issue on the T760 dryer (Guru, can you be more specific on the service kit for the 1 thermostat version email to please)? The heating element is really hard to get to - you have to remove the entire back cover (all screws) and maybe the top 3 screws. When you pull of the cover, some of the electrical connections get in the way of you removing the element completely. You have to disconnect a few of them. There are 2 screws holding the heating element in.

Look through the back of the drum with a tourch to see if there is one or two thermostats,if theres only one then you need to fit a service kit.but you need asko to fit it.this will fix your problem if theres two thermostats,then you need to dismantle and clean dryer.also wash door filter it must be see through.this may be the only problem .

My dryer turns on and everything appears fine except it is not heating, i already checked and there is no clogging of lint and the there is no hot air coming from the outside hose

First you have to determine whether you element is in the front or the back of the machine this is done easiest by looking at the front of the machine and seeingif its one complete piece or two. If its one, the element is in the back, if two its in the front. We'll start if its in the back first. Tools you'll need is: 1/4 nut driver or drill with 1/4 adapter and a multimeter with ability to check continuity. With the machine unplugged, remove the back cover of the dryer. Once done, the heating element will be located on the right hand side with two fuses on the housing of the element. Test the element and each fuse seperatly by removing the wires and checking for continuity on each component. All parts should show continuity, so if one doesn't its bad and needs to be replaced. Now if the element is the front everything is the same with the exception of you have to remove the lower portion, usually held on by 3-4 screws located underneath.

It looks like everything is working good except there is no heat at all.

The most common issue is 1/2 of the breaker trips, and is NOT obvious. To eliminate, forcefully turn the breaker off (FULLY OFF) and back on. If you just flip to off and back on, you rarely "catch" the tripped 1/2.
Then check to be certain you have unrestricted airflow to the outside of the building. Any restriction will trip thermal limiters, cutting heat and fire hazard. To test, pull hose from the back of the machine, turn on and form an opinion of air flow and volume, hook hose back up, turn machine on again, go outside and verify that you have very similar air flow....Typically a screen gets restricted at building exit...

When i start the Bosch WTE84107GB/02 is showing filter.

Having spent two nights trying to resolve the same issue with ours and having searched the internet for help. I would check the following,

Check lower filter and ensure its all clear.

Remove the back of the machine, the pear shaped steel cover part, held on by 10-12 torx/star bolts. Once removed you should see two sensor, one has a red reset button, press the centre and if it clicks you've reset it. Now you could be lucky and just refit the back and it will work o.k but the likelyhood from my experience is that the senors tripped out due to an overheating situation occuring. If it trips out after the reset, remove the cover again, the two sensors are mounted in what is the heater element. I removed this unit but to allow access you need to remove the lower steel duct below the heater element unit, held on my 4 torx/star bolts. Once the ducts removed you can remove the two torx/star bolts that hold the heater unit in position. Once the heater unit is removed, blow out any dust and dirt from the heater coils. With the heater unit removed you can see both the sensors from inside the heater element housing and both mine were caked in dirt so i cleaned the surfaces with a soft cloth and a drop of WD40 (not to much just enough to remove the dirt).

The next part of the machine i'd check is the air intake side. There's a grill area and the right lower side of the dryer to the right of the lower filter housing. Now you can probably remove this grill by resting the machine on it's side and releasing the clips from the underside of the machine but I took off the right hand side panel of the machine, you'll need to remove the top (two screws at the back of the machine slide back and lift off), then you need to remove the control panel, remove the water tank, and then remove the two screws on the left side, on the right side and on the right had side of the control panel, there's one screw, remove this and pully forward gently. You can then access the right side panel forward screws x 2, remove the rear screws, top screws and there one on the underside in the middle. The side panel pulls away backwards away for the front of the machine as it has three locating pegs at the front. Once the panels removed you'll no dout find the area around the motor and drive belt is covered in fluff, just hoover out. with the side panel remove you'll notice the motor unit drives two fans, one you'd have seen when you removed the rear cover and on my machine that was all clear, but the other fan is towards the front of the machine and is covered by a semi circular white plastic cover, which has 4 release clips on the outer egde and one at the rear towards the middle at the motor end and one at the front close to the middle and you won't get you hand into this, you need to release the clip form the underside of base of the machine.Once all clips are removed you can remove the cover, but it's a tight fit but it does come out. Once removed you'll see the fan unit, it's like a hamster wheel and on my machine this was fully choked up with fluff in the middle and in between the fan blades and this is what was stopping air circulation and hence why the machine overheated and cut out. You can hoover out the fan and in the intake system and refit in reverse order, making sure you get the screws back in the right order.

Whilst you have the machine half apart, Once you've refitted the right hand side panel and before you refit the front control panel i'd remove the left hand panel, hoover out. At the bottom left side you'll see the pump unit. There's two pipes going to it, remove the cover retaining screws and remove the cover. Remove both pipes and the two electrical sensors (ones pump and ones the float level senor) Once removed, clean the float sensor and pump you can remove the end cover off the pump and you can also remove the float from the cylinder housing ), remove the filter unit/heat exchanger and clean any sludge etc from inside the pump sump area. Refit

We found that on completion of this the machine was a lot more efficient and made less noise and it's nearly 11 years old so it owes us nothing !!

I have a roper dryer. I took it apart today

Remove all duct work connected to this dryer. Clean thoroughly. You will find amass of lint inside of it causing your problem. If not the moister sensor is not working properly and needs to be replaced.
I do hope you will find a clogged vent tube for it is easier to clean the tube than to replace the sensor. The sensor is a fail safe part. It keeps the dryer from catching on fire when the lint tube is clogged up

I have a bosch WTE86304GB/03 tumble dryer red light says empty container, but container is empty, machine keeps stoping and flashing this light on ?

Hi the problems is not a sensor its the codenser unit. Above the water collector should be a panel on the front of your machine, open the panel and you will see the condeser.covered in fluff, simply remove the condeser and clean it under an outside tap after removing as much fluff as possible by hand. Push back into place when clean and hey presto back to new again.

Our dryer was not drying clothes all the way. My husband took off the front panel and the entire area is FULL of lint, money, etc. There was so much dust on the area above the heating elements!! Can you...

Probably not ... cleaning of the machine is the responsibility of the owner.

Please also clean your exhaust hose ... and since you are concerned about fire, replace your plastic hose with a flexible metal hose if not already so equipped.

Dont forget the outside vent ... clean it too.

Im glad you didnt have a serious incident. You should treat yourself to something special with the found money.

Thanks for visiting

I hope these comments help you ... Please keep your machine clean.

Dryer model DE27CW1 takes forever to dry a small to med loads. 3 hours for 6 towels on a manual high heat setting. The dryer vent has been cleaned and A&E Service has been here twice and said the dry...

I think you are clogged.

Pull the machine from the wall ... remove the hose and run the hose of a vacuum (shop vac if you have one) into the machine. When you are sure that is clean, turn around and clean the hose ... or better yet - replace it. Lastly, dont forget the outside vent.

With the drier empty, turn it on to air and see what kind of air movement you get out of the exhaust.

Another thing yhou might want to check is the sensor in the drum (this would apply if you have a sensor based drying system. ) The sensor may be covered with some material that prevents it from reading the dampness of the clothing.

and one more thing ... you do have heat ... right? Gas? - you should see flame in the burner - electric, does it heat up at all? It is not beyond the realm of possibilities that your heater is done ... but check the easy stuff first.

I hope this helps you

Let me know what happens

Dyer will not turn on. I have cleaned the heat sensors, the lights go on, it is not over loaded..any thoughts

check the angle on the vent hose on the back of the machine and the vent flap hoodie thing outside also the vent hose should not exceed 11 feet. I had this problem and replaced the springy plastic covered vent hose with a rigid aluminum one and still have to check from time to time to make shore the hose is clear where it attaches to the machine. The lint from the extreme spin on the axxis washer is very fine and slightly damp it binds like paper mache.

Dryer works only on high heat; will not respond to touch pad.

Replace the gas valve coils. They have gotten weak and do not open on the next call for heat.
