Question about Asko T712 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My T712C Butterfly Condensor dryer has a problem with the timing of drying. I can put two bath towels in the dryer and it will time at 3hr40min and not stop showing a 3 on the time indicator. The towels are still damp. What do I need to get fixed. Also It is necessary to use the anticrease feature as the dryer becomes too hot and has scorched a faux fur blanket. I love my dryer and want to get it back to normal.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. To start with check the vent is clean, if still not resolved then it seems that the Thermal fuse that has gone bad. The thermal fuse is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. When this fuse goes bad it should be replaced as it cannot be repaired. You can test it for continuity between its two pins, no continuity means bad fuse. If this is fine then you'll need to check the thermostat, igniter and coils. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Tip

Treat your skin gently


Limit bath time. Hot water and long showers or baths remove oils from your skin. Limit your bath or shower time, and use warm - rather than hot water.Avoid strong soaps. Strong soaps can strip oil from your skin. Instead, choose mild cleansers. Pat dry. After washing or bathing, gently pat or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on your skin. Moisturize dry skin. Find a moisturizer that fits your skin type and makes your skin look and feel soft.<br /><br />

I have a LG Electric Dryer DLE5932W. When I run it on any of the settings in sensor dry the dryer turns off before the clothes are dry and you have to run it multiple times to get a load dry. Then if you...


this could be operator error please hear me out...... when wash bath towels you also put in wash cloths and hand towels .... there is a sensor in dryer drum shroud in front of lint filter to metal silver strips when the clothes are tumbling they sweep across this sensor telling the dryer heat to stay on and continue to dry.... if th small wash cloth sweeps it first before the bath towel then u get the same results as your describing just like if you were waqshing colors load like cotton tshirt and blue jeans the tshirt is going to dry way faster than blue jeans so if the tshirt sweeps that sensor first the dryer going to shut off we have to sort our clothes to thickness ans same size articles just try it once i bet your clothes are dry when cycle completes

Dryer runs but clothes never dry. Water is not collecting in plastic tub


Same problem. You need to empty the condensor. Take the bottom panel off the front of the unit. Place a LARGE towel under the dryer to catch all the water that is going to spill out. Move the 2 red tabs to the right & SLOWLY open the panel. Allow the excess water to drain into the towel, then fully open the panel. Have a bucket handy to catch the water as you remove the condensor. Slide the condensor out & drop the back end into the bucket to catch as much water as possible. Then take the condensor to the laundry tub & rinse it out thoroughly. Re-assemble. Next time you switch the dryer on, just check that you get a short burst of water from the drain hose. You will probably have to do this every 5-10 loads.

I think your vent has lint in the line between the wall and the outside of your house not allowing the moisture to get out

FIX

1 when the dryer is running go outside and observe the vent to see if hot air is coming out



2 Turn dryer off, disconnect electric from wall

3 pull dryer out from wall

4 take a nut driver or screw and remove the clamp that attaches the flex vent pipe to the wall

4 Also remove the flex pipe from the dryer

5 Inspect inside vent connection inside dryer for any trapped lint

6 inspect inside flex line for any lint

7 Look inside wall vent for lint you can also reach in with your hand to feel for lint

8 If you have a leaf blower or can borrow one(electric is best) from your neighbor put the snout of the blower into the vent going into the wall seal the area between the snout and the vent pipe at the wall ( i use duct tape you can use wash clothes rags etc

9 start blower and blow any lint in the line out through outside THIS WILL CLEAR THE LINT

10 Reattach the flex to the wall vent and dryer , plug in. run a load and you should be back in business

Good Luck

Bad smell


washers and dryers dont make smells themselves its a problem with something u might be putting in it. if u tend to add alot more detergent then usual to your towels then they never completely rinse the water out and will have a mildew smell
