Question about Asko T780 Dryer

1 Answer

I was using the "dry" cycle and noticed the dryer stopped after 10 minutes. When I opened the door, very light smoky/steamy stuff was coming out the door and there was a slight burning smell. Now, it won't restart. What do you think happened?

My lg Dle5977w cooling light stays on with the dryer light flashing when it's runing. Is that normal? Also it stops befour the clothing is dry having to run it a few times?


Check your vents. Make sure they are clean and not kinked.
When you open the door, is the air steamy? If so dryer vent is clogged.
Re the flashing lights, you may have to pull your customers owners manual for that answer.

Lg dryer dle7177 cutting off during cycle


I had a tumble dryer that stopped working and after much investigation it turned out to be an internal thermostatic switch and lots of fluff around the internal filters. ( Mine had 2 of them 1 would cut the heat and kick back in when the temperature dropped and the other one would completely cut all power rendering the drier non usable until cicuit breaker thermostat was replaced. The reason they cut out is to prevent overheating and possible fire. When the thermostat gets to certain temperature it breaks the circuit. Apparently you shouldn't stop the drier until it has completely cooled down as there will be too much heat which could cause a fire, which is why most drier cycles have 10 minutes of cool/ non heated air at the end. So in conclusion I would take all the filters out and give them a good clean and try to avoid opening the door while there is still a lot of heat in the drier. I'm not sure if this will help but its a starting point.

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Drying Cabinet above emits a smoky scent but there is no smoke


These cabinets seem like such a good concept.
While I have never worked on one, I would first take the back off (having disconnected the power) and look for a build-up of lint on the heat exchanger/heating coil assembly. Check that ducts are free of built-up lint and fans turn freely.
Lightly lubricate the motor shafts with a drop of machine oil. reassemble and run a test cycle monitoring carefully (keep a fire extinguisher at hand and a clear path to exit the building, have ready access to a telephone, know how to turn off the main power in your home). You will likely need none of these precautions but it's best to be safe and prepared.
Most dryer failures are related to lint build-up leading to excess heat. Clear vent ducts frequently, clean out the inside every few years, lubricate lightly at the same time.

General Electric Heavy Duty Dryer willnot start when start button


WARNING: High Voltage may bzzt you... careful.

Your dryer thinks that it is at the end of a dry cycle.

First thing to do is disconect the dryer from the 220v mains and let it sit for about 10 min.

then, spin the timer four or five times around and then stop it at a TIMED dry cycle, not an automatic cycle. (example: 60 minutes).

Plug unit back into the wall.

SLAM door on unit and press button again...

Dryer works for few minutes then stops


clothes can open the door if door latch is weak, causing door opening and stopping the cycle, or a bad automatic sensor

Whirlpool Dryer stopped mid cycle and won't start again


This sounds as if the internal fuse has blown. I am assuming you have checked the breakers as well. The starter switch might be bad.
