I am having a similar problem...motor hums like it is trying to lift vent but doesn't. I removed entire vent today...should I start by replacing motor? When I plugged in unit after removal I can hear and see motor trying to move but it will not turn gear to actuate the lifing of the vent. Any suggestions? Tom

Dryer heats but doesn't completely dry clothes.

See if you could turn the machine and remove the vent hose on the back.
Then, after you are sure it is clear, try a load of clothes with the vent hose blowing out into the air, not hooked to a vent hose pipe through the wall.
Very often, a plugged pipe will cause this behaviour. The pipe could be plugged in the wall or somewhere else.
Be blessed.

Makes a humming noise but doesn't turn

Try this, open the dryer door and hold down the door light switch. Turn on the dryer and press start.When you hear the motor humming, turn the drum clockwise with your hand to see if it will turn. If itruns, you have a bad motor and will need to be replaced. If it doesn't turn, something is jammedinside and you will need to disassemble the unit to find the jam.
Hope this helps.

My front load dryer will not start. We just changed the fuse and it was squeaking. Now it won't start. The belt is not popped we checked. it just hums and it doesn't turn

hums and doesnt turn would be along the lines of bad motor try using your hand on the inside of the drum to push the drum around if it is hard to push you will most likely be looking at having to replace the motor if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

Driying fan does not stopps


I think what you are describing is the "turbo fan" assembly. This device is used to remove the condensation to insure dishes are dry at the end of a cycle. It actually vent`s out the bottom left side via a plastic housing but the vent motor assembly is located inside the door at the upper left corner under the circular cover



If it ( the fan) continues to run or "hums" because it`s trying to run, even when the dishwasher is idle or no program has been selected, it is likely a problem within` the control board unfortunately.

This is usually caused by the vent assembly getting clogged up so it cannot open correctly and the "wax motor" ( the small device which open`s and closes the vent ) burns up and short`s out the control board.

You can see the small wax motor in this image, the brown/red brick shaped device on top of the fan housing...



If you`re capable, you can visually inspect the control and look for burnt up path ways on the printed circuit side ( green side with lot`s of solder joints ). It may be pretty obvious as soon as you see the control as it was ith this one I attached here,



If so you`ll need to replace the control as well as the fan assembly, or clean the assembly really well,














Clean all the fan blade a vent thoroughly and reassemble with the new wax motor and control and you should be good to go.

You may opt to just replace the entire fan assembly, it is available and comes as complete,



Most asko control`s come with a new "wax motor"...or used to where I live. Unfortunately those control`s retail for about $400 and up, and most now are of the "rebuilt/refurbished" kind. The part number should be ( if the model number is correct ) # 8801201.

Hope this help`s move you forward. Let me know either way and I`ll try to assist you further.

Thank`s for visiting FixYa today for your repair solution`s and good luck moving forward. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided for you today and again good luck.

Remove the top cover, plu it back in and see if the hum goes away, if it
doesn`t look to see if the fan is stuck, if it is unplug and try to spin it
by hand, if it wont spin replace the fan motor
