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 [email protected] 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 whirlpool awo3761/s keeps tripping my electricity when water is inside the drum

I would turn off the machine and unplug from the wall. Water is conductive and if it is throwing your switch you need a professional to look at it. Ring your local washing machine mechanic. Electricity and water are just too dangerous. If you keep resetting your switch and trying to run it, just to have it reset again, you can burn out the switch in the board. My husband did that when the kettle kept tripping it. New switch in the board was about $300.00.

Error code fh on maytag front loader MFW9700SQ0 have checked flow value!, pressure valve, cleaned internal filter and keeps setting code

i figured it out with my washing machine, take off the top lid (7mm 3 screws in the back) there is a black and burgundy sensor on the top left side, take off the black hose, turn the sensor clock wise 1/4 turn, lift out and blow into the part where the hose was connected to, (I did this while it was running to test it) sure enough it started draining... (its a pressure sensor i guess) and it still works so i took off the back of the washing machine and found that the black hose had a split in it. i had a compressing coupling so i cut out the bad part of the hose and coupled it back together now it works :)
p.s. the hose is about a 1/4 inch line and i think its surgical hose, and wash it out mine was filled with junk... hope it helps

E4 error light comes on, dishwasher won't run, this apparently means water is on a sensor, have removed water from collection tray in bottom, tilted machine backward to dry out sensor, left for 24 hours,...

The problem is related to the floater assembly inside the dishwasher. It is filling up with gunk and stop working properly. I found out the hard way after a good spill. The solution is easy but takes a bit of time.
1. Unplug the power and water hoses.Unscrew the main cover ( both sides , pry off plastic caps first) back, and open door to remove the screws form the left and top attached to the main cover.
2. Remove the cover completely by lifting and slightly bending the bottom to unlatch.
3. On the right side, you can see the floater assembly. Remove the single screw on the lever and turn the lever 90 degrees to remove from the piston. Pry out the reservoir cover by pressing on the two latches(one is glued on, remove the glue).
4. You will see a very dirty mechanism which have to be cleaned up totally with sponges and paper towels. If possible ,you can try to insert a flexible wire inside the rubber hose at the bottom to ensure nothing is blocking it.
5. Replace the reservoir cover with its piston and re-install the lever.
6. At this stage, before installing the big cover, you can connect the hoses and power cord and try with setting P5 to start a small run. You should see the lever rising during water filling, when the spinner start turning, water filling stops for a moment then starts again for a brief period. This is a good check of the health of the float assembly when you run your washer. There should be a brief period of stop and start of water fill like you had when your machine was brand new.
7. Re-install the cover. ( the darker colored screws go in the front (behind door). Put back plastic caps . Reconnect power and water hoses.
8. Repeat from time to time when you don't hear the start and stop water fill.

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 !!

Tromm lg washing machine keeps having an OE error and the machine shuts down. We have cleaned the little filter on bottom front and also cleaned the little black drain hose, used a vac pump so **** out,...

The OE error is really a DE error. (Drain error) Drain all water out of machine as you have done before and remove the square recess around the filter by removing one screws and using a putty knife from the side of the recess. Now you will be able to remove the two more screws holding the pump to the front housing. Tip machine back (best to just lean it against an object like a wall that's about a foot and a half away) and reach under machine to remove pump. Pump is held by a plastic tab which should be depressed to release pump. If you take off wires to pump and the two bigger hoses you can pull the assemble completely out. Take the three screws out which are holding the pump motor on. Replace pump motor with a new one. Reinstall pump assembly.
If you list a model number I can look up a part number.
Not too sure how you got water to come out vent, as machine should not spin with water in drum. Possibly you may also have to clean out the water level hose. Remove four screws holding back cover, take off cover, remove and clean out thin black hose from bottom back of machine and the nipple it was pushed onto.

Maytag front load washer leaking water from detergent dispenser

The other end of the dispenser to outer drum hose only connects to the outer drum and if you remove the top cover of the machine, you will see it clearly. You can unclamp the hose from the bottom of the dispenser and feel inside the hose for any obstruction. Do not remove the hose from the outer drum. Pour some hot water down the hose and squeeze the hose from top to bottom to remove build up of detergent and softener on the inside walls of the hose.

Washer emitting burning smell and smoke on fast spin

Yes, the heating element is coming on when it shouldn't. A likely cause is the pressure pot (Level sensor sender unit) being blocked with sludge. You'll find this under the machine, either screwed to the RH side of the tub, near to the front of the machine secured by three Philips screws, or attached to the side of the big hose that goes from the tub to the pump,secured by a Jubilee clip, underneath the machine. disconnect the power and remove the pressure pot, in both cases it's a long rigid white plastic tube, from one end of which comes a narrow flexible plastic hose which goes up to the top of the cabinet and is attached to the pressure switch itself. This tube is likely to have a load of muck in it, as its bottom end. Clean this out, and if your element didn't burn out, then everything should now be fine.
