Question about Ariston Technologies ASL75CXSNA 24" Ventless Dryer with Delay Timer in Platinum
1. The clothes weren't hot after a load
2. Panel blinked after each cycle-indicating a fault
I picked up the ol screwdrivers and decided to tear it apart.
Remove the top piece.You could skip this but the schematic is on the inside cover and will help you understand the machine. There are two screws on the upper-back that secure this on. Then you have to forcefully slide the piece from the front to the back. It may take a bit of persuading- but it will work (don't pry it up like me and break the plastic guide tabs).
Since this was a heat issue I went for the coils section. Ariston has a two feedback devices(NPT) and one safety cutoff (One Shot) in this machine. The NPT's and are located in the front above the tub and the back on the coil rack. The cutoff is located in the coil rack. Check the cutoff before anything else.
Take off the back cowl cover and duct (from the rear of the machine these are in the lower left hand area) about 10 screws. Leave the 2 tiny screws in the middle installed (be careful of the unfinished edges on the sheetmetal...pretty sharp).
Pry it out and remove the 2 screws from before. You will see the brass cutoff and the black NPT. Pull off the wires and test. The NPT should show some impedance (put your hand on it to warm it and observe it change). The cutoff should show 0ohms. This is what was broken. My pn was 36FX14. I think a company in Ohio makes it (TOD.com) but I just found a UK appliance store to ship an authorized spare overseas air (~20L)
Some websites mention that you can drill a small hole in the back and reset it with a pin..which you can...but you'd be a fool to trust the device. If you shelled out the bucks for this model-you can afford a new switch. Plus your neighbors won't appreciate the smoky fire smell when your place torches.
Causes: Repeatedly cycling wet heavy loads, dirty vents (fluff invasion), and most surprisingly, peeking into the machine mid-cycle (which disrupts airflow and can spike the temperature over the sensor). If you need to peek first set the dial to the fan (for a few minutes) to cool down the coils before opening the door.

This is a great article! I have an Ariston A33V dryer (which is different from the model discussed in the article) and whilst the text is a bit on the tech side for me, it did inspire me to open up the machine.
I took off the back cover (the somewhat oval bit that sticks out that is attached with about 10 screws around the rim - only take off the screws around the rim not the six on the elevated part of that bit of metal), and found a dark red reset switch on the side of the heating element (the set of "springs"). Pressing that switch reset the heater and the dryer was heating again.
So thank you tjboston for posting this excellent article which helped me fix my problem, even though my machine is a different model.
