Question about Asko T701 Electric Dryer
Hello, welcome to Fixya. I think you`ve come to the right place...in my humble opinion.
First things first, have you checked the 15amp fuses which are located at the back of your Asko dryer ? **Turn off your breaker at the home service panel, it should be a 30amp switch**
That is where I`d start. They are at the back as I said located next to where the power cord exit`s the unit. Look for 2 small round slotted caps ( these are the fuse holders/hubs ) either black or gray in color.
With a flat screwdriver fitted in the slot of the fuse hub, turn it a half turn counter clockwise an it should drop out...though it may need to be pulled out if it`s stuck in the holder part.
Replace with a 15amp "slow blow" ( the only difference is the slow blow are filled with sand and aren`t transparent glass tubes but rather gray or white in color ) if the fuse is blown. You can find these fuses at most brick & mortar appliance part stores or on-line parts vendors such as repairclinic.com, amresupply.com, reliableparts.ca etc. Part number is #8058140 and you should replace both. The number may substitue to an in-store number, it really depends on the vendor, just provide your model number and you should have no trouble.
Hope that is helpful. If so please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know what you find or if you require further assitance.
Thank`s for visiting Fixya today and good luck.

Testimonial: "Thank you Macmarkus- your advice was spot on! It was a fuse issue. One note, neither fuse would pop out of the housing because both had melted and literally "fused" to fuses. As a result I went to the electronics store and purchased new compatible housings plus fuses. Finally, I did wait for a service repair person to install, but was advised that Asko has a complete replacement kit now for this washer-I was quite concerned about the melting issue, it didn't seem right; apparently there have been problems with this dryer-I assume this new kit that was installed will remedy the problem. There is also a sticker they placed on my machine advising not to replace the fuses again?"
