Question about Asko Dryers

Hi: I have an Asko Dryer and it stopped working. The power light doesn't come on . It's a few years old but hasn't been used more than 50 times. Is there a fuse that needs/can be reset?

    Your response dealt with a dishwasher. This is an Asko Dryer (clothes dryer) that is not working. The breaker in the breaker box is in the proper position. I was wondering if there was an additional fuse or reset button on the dryer itself.



    Would appreciate any direction on this.

    Thanks

    I have an Asko T701 clothes dryer that just stopped working. The power light is very dim and it won't start. Is there a reset button somewhere that I can push or is there something else that I can do to make this work?
    Thanks

    Thanks for the email. I'll get on that today. The model number is T701. Are those fuses easy to find?



    If the wires are fried do the kits contain a full set of replacements?

    Hello again: I can't make out the text that goes with the diagrams. Is there another way to get that info to me?

    Thanks very much for the additional information. I can't access the link for some reason. My dryer is, of course, stacked on the washer. My question about the fuses being easy to find was more directed toward the issue of being able to find them for purchase. Sorry about the confusion there. Are they readily available to buy?

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

There are indeed 2 fuses on the dryer next to the power cord, ( depending on the model, some are actually inside a cover...you`ll have to provide a model number if your Asko doesn`t look like the image below ) left side of back as illustrated below...facing from the back.



Hi:  I have an - c3bf34a.jpg


Further to this, if they both check out as o.k. I'd suggest you remove the top and check the wiring going to and from the fuse hubs/holders as they can and do become burnt and worn due to metal fatigue over time.

**Unplug the unit from the wall before servicing though...safety first**

The top is easy to remove, just three screws at the back along the top ( # 25 torx heads ) and slide the top back an inch or two and up, it will come off.

You should then see similar to this ( this is an Asko dryer model 7005, but the fuse and connectors will be similar )

i.e.




The fuse assembly subs to a complete kit now, like shown below.

This hopefully will move you forward. Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Let me know if you require further assistance or if indeed this solved your problem. Please keep me informed either way


Regards,

Macmarkus :)

    Hi again,



    Here's an Asko post of the fuse location and procedure to change them.






    Hopefully you can make it out, I know it's small. If it isn't readable let me know and I can try something else.



    Good luck,

    Hi Gary,



    I did actually see your previous post regarding the model number "The model number is T701. Are those fuses easy to find?" thanks for providing that.



    They are relatively easy to find in my opinion, yes. Much easier if the dryer isn't stacked on top of the washer, unfortunately in my experience it usually is.



    I'm going to attach a link below to my macmarkus "live" account that will take you directly to a "pdf" of the T700 series Asko dryer and hopefully the service manual can provide a better visual for you than I can post here. ( you shouldn't need to "save" it, I think I have the permission locked but if I list you as a friend I may be able to allow you to save it...just select "open" to view it and it will go to your "temporary internet folder" once opened refer to page 30 )



    https://cid-674627ce75316bb3.office.live...



    If the wires are fried do the kits contain a full set of replacements?



    As for the wire connectors, if they are in poor condition I would replace them, but no they don't come in the fuse kit. I typically purchase wire connectors at places such as "reliableparts.ca" or "thesource.ca"...most electronic retailers will carry them, likely even Lowe's or Home depot for that matter.



    Let me know how you make out and please keep me posted. Good luck.



    Regards,



    Macmarkus :)

    Hello Gary,



    When you said "My question about the fuses being easy to find was more directed toward the issue of being able to find them for purchase."



    Yes they are available to buy readily, I should have realized that, sorry. They are indeed available on-line at "repairclinic.com", as for a local brick & mortar retailer I can't say. I purchase mine locally at "reliableparts.ca"



    Also if you go to most electronic stores such as Radioshack/the source/circuit city, and ask for a 15amp-240v slow blow inline fuse you can likely get just the fuse itself.



    i.e.






    If you'd still like that service manual you can email me at [email protected] and I can allow you to view it...sorry about that, it's a safetry feature one must have on-line unfortunately.



    Once again good luck.



    Regards,



    Macmarkus :)

    By the way, the kit part is Fuse kit #1460992. I don't know the individual fuse number as Asko substitutes it to the complete kit.

    As I said though, if you go to most electronic stores such as Radioshack/the source/circuit city, and ask for a 15amp-240v slow blow inline fuse you can likely get just the fuse itself.

Hi.
Yes there is a fuse or circuit breaker in the electrical panel for your home that sends power to the dishwasher. Go to the panel and see if it is labeled. If it is not labeled, turn each breaker full on and then full off and then full on again. Then check the dishwasher. If you have fuses, check each fuse to see if it good or blown. If blown, be sure to replace it with one of the same amperage.

That said, and assuming that there is power going to the dishwasher check these items

1. Door switch
The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it. 2. Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors. 3. Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

Fuse on asko dryer 7305 blows after a few minutes on


I assume you are talking about the reset under the little rubber plug on the back of the dryer? The most common cause for this is the very fine lint filter on these Asko's getting dirty and restricting airflow. It may LOOK clean, but unfold it, scrub the screen with a soft brush and dish soap, on all 4 surfaces then let it dry before using it. If this doesn't solve the problem, unhook the dryer vent and try running the dryer with the vent hose removed from the wall. If it doesn't trip then, you need to have your house vent cleaned out because it is restricting airflow. if THAT doesn't fix it, try removing the lower panel at the bottom, then remove the fan cover (kinda round and all the way to the left behind the panel) and checking to see if the blower wheel is clogged with lint, or if it has come loose and is not spinning at all. One of these is almost certainly your problem, unless this is a condensing style dryer. If that's the case then you probably just need to pull the condenser out and clean it.

Asko dryer takes forever to dry clothes lately -- only 5 years old.


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.

My asko t721 dryer is one week old and i do not have a manual.it stopped in the middle of a cycle. it had 3 bath towels in it.. it starts when i push the button but will not stay on for more than a few...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description I`d direct you to first check the hi-temp cut out at the back...if you haven`t already.

It will look like this on the Asko dryers...

7995fe6.jpg

If you push this to reset and the unit works, great. I would keep an eye on it though since the hi-limit typically trips for a reason such as a excessive long vent or flex vent being used ( stay away from flex venting ) plugged lint filter, plugged vent ot partially plugged etc.

If it doesn`t run after-wards or it`s not tripped, you`ll need to investigate further...if necessary.

Keep me posted on your progress or what you find and I'll help in whatever manner I can. Good luck.

My dryer stopped working this morning. The light to the on switch is "on," meaning it's red. But everything else looks dead: The start button doesn't have a light. And, the display panel is...


If it there is power in the system (red light on power swithch),yet the dryer does not run - with a totally blank LED screen (no error message), the controller board may be out. You can snap in a new one (remove the top of the dryer, take picture to make sure you know where the wires go) remove from clips n replace. Only thing, it'll cost you $220 to buy a new one. Try repairclinic.com - if it doesn't work you can return for full refund.

Power off


Howdy. I suspect a power surge went through your machine and fried its itsy bitsy brain.Its time for a new one unless you have a good supplier and serviceman who will replace the control unit. Get an estimate with a closed top cost before you agree.

Hi, I have the Asko dryer T721. It's about 6 years old and is starting to emit a gas smell when it is on. It also seems to be taking a lot longer to dry. I have followed the manual to clean it and it works...


Umm, i think its time to say goodbye to your drier, i had a drier, when it got past the 4 year mark, it made a weird smell, then it kind of set itself on fire, call asko if you can, ask them....
