Question about Dryers

2 Answers

My Asko T781 dryer (more than 7 years in operation) started giving the Overflow Fault message and shutting down during operation. The condensation hose is properly leading to a sink (the in unit container never fills) and the hose is not blocked. However, the water level behind the condenser (lower right rear corner) does seem to be topping off (I drained this, restarted the load, got the message again after a while, and found this area to be full again). The manual advises to 'make sure the condensation pump is not blocked.' I'm guessing that this pump is the problem, but I don't know where to locate it or blockages leading to it. I do have access to the rear of the unit and am comfortable attempting some dis-assembly at least to inspect (am off warranty but do have local ASKO service).

    The manual verified that reaching the condenser pump requires a LOT of dis-assembly (w drum removal). luckily, however, after I blew backwards through the drain hose to get some bubbling at the pump base I verified that the pump was running and all SEEMS to be working again. Must have been just a bit of debris blocking that pump (or its water level sensor); I"ll just hope it doesn't block up again any worse.
    I do clean the condenser frequently which is a bit of a pain (trouble to access). This was otherwise a good purchase considering the years of operation and the tough application (a space from which no external vent could run).

    Actually I just ended up blowing back in from the drain hose end and that seemed to clear whatever was blocking the pump or its level sensor so all is fine again; this is overall such a reliable unit (except that a fuse housing tends to overheat and need replacing every couple of years), that I think I'll hold on to it yet.

You need to clean out the stuff in the pump AND wash out the condenser I know that much from reading about it.

Here is your ASKO SERVICE MANUAL

I been studying these dryers. I have the manual but no practical experience with these. Never even seen one yet. Let me know what you find out.

Hello. Yes, you are correct. Do get an estimate on the cost of that part and the installation if you won't be installing it yourself. NOW here is the dilemna. At age 7 your dryer is nearing the end. Do you put $$$ into a repair only to have another part fail soon? I recommend to my customers, once any appliance is out of warranty, that they put the money toward a new machine. The new ones are much better, more efficient, quieter, etc. Good luck . Joe

The display doesn't work


Asko are not very common in many areas and so not many people can mentally remember what this model looks like.
However, if the display doesn't not work: Try unplugging it for five minutes or just removing the power for that time. See if it resets.

Not sure what 'does not work' means...no light, no response to touch..respond but does not start..???
Give more info if you seriously nee people who are not at the machine to help you.

Asko dryers


Akso makes "condensing" dryers (Models T721 and T781) that condense the moisture wich then is directed to a drain. The T701 is a vented style dryer so I'm a little confused.

I just had this same problem, The fuses were not attached to anything. I stumbled upon a black button, that looks sort of like a gromet. Push that, it's a reset button. If it clicks, there you go. It could mean something else is wrong, but that should be a starting place.

Asko T781 dryer trips on over temperature


The problem is probably that it is much lint in the fan, and/or in the back of the drum, so the air is unable to cirkulate fast enough. OR it can be that you are overfilling it with laundry.

Asko T781 Electric Dryer Doesn't Turn On


Have you reset the cut out on the back? its a little black button that you push in until it clicks. If it does not click, then it probably wasnt the problem. The next most likely cause is a melted fuse holder inside the box on the rear where the power cord goes in. There is a bypass kit available to repair this problem from ASKO, as the fuses are not needed. If you are able to do some simple wiring, you can do this. Otherwise find an AUTHORIZED asko servicer and they will know what I'm talking about. Good luck!

Asko T780 Stopping after a few seconds.


It sounds like you have a condensing dryer. These condense the water into a pan in the back, and then the water is pumped down the drain. If you are getting an overflow, it means the pan is full of water and the controller is shutting it down to prevent it from leaking on the floor. Most likely cause is a bad drain pump, which is a bit of a bear to change as it is in the back behind the rear wall in the lower right hand corner. The other option is that the drain line could be pinched or clogged, especialy if the unit was moved just before the problem started. Hope this helps!
