Question about Asko T700 Electric Commercial Dryer

Aslo T700 Dryer Heats but won't dry.

My Asko T700 dryer, ever since I have had it, has not done a good job of drying clothes. A serviceman said there was nothing wrong with it, that "...that was the 'European way'"... Clothes were to come out dampi. After reading complaints about Asko dryers on the Web I think he just did not know how to fix it.

A handy-man friend looked at it and found that the heat is working but it appears that the drum is rotating too fast as the centrifugal force keeps the clothes against the drum...they don't tumble. He suggested possibly a smaller drive pulley would correct the problem but admits he's just guessing.

The heat works, the filter is clean, the exhaust and vent is clean; I've used smaller loads; I've increased the spin cycle on my washer; all to no avail.

Could he be right? It seems that Asko would have corrected such an obvious problem before putting the dryer on the market.

    I'm having a similar problem with very long dry times. The unit seems to be heating properly, but may not be coming to full temp. what is the typical exhaust temp when the unit is in high heat? I have replaced the temp sensors in the back of the machine near the heating coil, but there are also two sensors in the front just downstream of the fan. Could these be goign bad and not allowing the machine to high temp?

The main on/off is bad. If you have reset the breakre, clean the lint filter.

Dryer heats but won't dry clothes completely

Inspect and clean the dryer is what I would do. most times it is a faulty blower wheel causes your symptoms.

I have an Asko T700 dryer which is working fine except tripping after half or less of drying time. I can reset and it dries for a while longer, usually tripping again. I have cleaned out the lint and...

Well, if the vents are perfectly clean and unobstructed the only thing I can think of is that the thermal switch designed to turn off unit when overheating is opening prematurely.
Might have to be replaced.

My Asko dryer does not dry clothes. It shuts off

It is quite common for lint to cover the blower on these units, making it impossible for the dryer to move any air.

1)remove the lower panel. you will need a T20 driver for this and may need to tip the dryer slightly to the rear

2)remove the left part of the blower plenum. this is held by 3 plastic tabs and a T15 screw

You will now see the blower wheel, it is a squirrel cage type. Check for lint buildup, broken vanes, or string/thread wrapped around the shaft.

if there is no problem with the blower then there is another reason you are not moving air. let me know if this helps

Our model medt5870tw0 maytag dryer does not dry properly

First , remove the vent hose from the dryer to see if good air flow is coming out the dryer vent . If not , could have a bad blower wheel . If so , then check the vent hose AND vent to outside to see if blocked . A dryer will either heat or not heat . Since your dryer heats , try drying a load without the vent hose connected to the dryer and see if it heats fine (telling you , a vent problem is apparent . Sometimes a dryer is pushed too far back , kinking the vent hose also .

Dryer air heats up but does not dry the clothes. Just replaced the timer but did not fix the problem. Air vents are cleared.

One of two possiblities:

1. Dryer vent is blocked - check the air coming through the outside vent
2. Blower Fan is clogged - remove the lower front panel and clean out the fan wheel

The drum is spinning, the heats working, not drying

Try washing both lint screens with soap and water and letting them dry.

Noisy dryer with long dry time

check to see if the fans are loose if so replace them this will also cause poor drying time.iI find its better to dismanttle these dryers and check the rollers,belt and jockey pulley at the same time.they look hard to work on but they are easy just take you time theres generally no wires to undo.
