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?"

    Hello again,



    Sorry I have been unavailable for a while to reply. The kit which is available is virtually the same with the exception of the fuses fitting the hub and holder more securely, hence the fuse is less likely to heat up due to resistance. Worst case scenario is the fuse will "blow" again, that is what they where designed to do after all.



    On another note regarding the actual kit, I have not heard of such "warning" label`s being attached to the machines after-wards though. Was this service company you had perform the update an authorized Asko dealer or warranty provider ?



    I don`t want to suggest this label is nothing more than a deterrent from you servicing the fuses on your own placed by this service company as it would be in their best interest for you to phone them, however I am completely un-aware of any such warning from Asko themselves...but I am in Canada.



    That may indeed be the difference and I certainly claim no authority in the matter nor do I speak on behalf of Asko. You may want to phone Asko customer service in the U.S. 1-800-898-1879 just to verify the legitimacy of this label and the service company ( assuming the United States is where you reside ).



    I want to stress I`m not discounting this service company, that isn`t my place. I`m just encouraging you to check into matter`s that directly affect you.



    I`m glad you where able to get your Asko repaired and I`m happy to have been able to help you in that regard. Good luck moving forward.



    I would be interested in learning what you find out if you wouldn`t mind posting back here.



    Thanks for coming to "fixya" once again.



    regards.

Asko t701 dryer won't start


If yourdryer is not starting then it is your motor. To determine this there is a trick you can try. First, put a piece a tape over the safetyswitch on the dryer. Take one hand andspin your drum of your dryer as your press the start button. If it takes off, then there is a bad spot onthe motor. Another thing is to try checkto see if you are getting 220 Volts to you outlet by taking a volt meter set at250 volts. Take the red leg of the voltmeter to the one side and the black leg to the other side. If the volt reader reads 220 then you aregetting the proper voltage. Finally, ifyou are getting 220 volts then it is your dryer heating elements. On a 220 volt for the dryer one leg is forthe motor and leg is for the element.

My Asko dryer shut off and my clothes are still wet. It won't start and the light on the pannel will not come on. I know I probably have lint in the system that escaped the lint trap or maybe something...


YOUR DRYER Has a fuse in it look for it probably somewhere close to where the main power comes in at. if it's good check the heat relay contactor assembly. www.repairclinic.com has the model you have and it may even be as simple as the door switch

Check the two fuses on the back. I had one burn out on me. Also there is a reset button on the back in the very centre (it is a rubber button).
