Question about Asko T701 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Hello. I have an Asko T761 dryer that is not working. We had someone housesitting last who told us the dryer was off (stopped mid-cycle?) when she came to get out a load of laundry. I suspect she may have had a heavy load of towels in there. Power LED will not come on and reset button in back does not seem to be tripped. I would like to change the fuses, but the screwdriver slots in the grey plastic fuse covers have been stripped. Any tricks to getting them open? Also would like advice on what type of fuses I need - do they have to be Asko? We paid over $800 just over a year ago to have the dryer belt and pulley changed and a new control board for both washer and dryer so you can imagine I am hoping to fix this myself for cheap! thanks!

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Indeed I would suggest it is a fuse as well, based on your description.

1st, If the fuse holders are stripped, that does pose a bit of a problem for changing only the fuse...but it may also be a blessing. Why ? Once the fuses start to go, in my experience with Asko ( and I have lots ) the metal contacts and spring inside the holder are fatigued which causes resistance, hence the fuses tend to blow quite often.

To change them you'll need to remove the entire fuse & holder assembly, but there is a kit which come complete for a relatively reasonable price at "repairclinic.com" for about $50, part # 1460992...no where near $800, ouch.

i.e.

Hello. I have an Asko - macmarkus_2.jpg


**To do this you'll first need to unplug the unit from the wall or turn off your breaker at your homes service panel...saferty first.**



2nd, No you don't have to replce the fuse with a genuine Asko fuse. It is simply a 15 amp 250v slow blow inline fuse.

Here's what you can do.

Sorry it is so small. Let me know if it is too small to understand and I can email you a copy, maybe you can zoom in on it.

You can reach me at macmarkus@live.ca.

Hope this helps move you forward. I will watch for your reply.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Macmarkus :)

ASko dryer T761 goes bump bump bump when starting. sometimes we can wiggle drum around and get it to stop. Help!


I believe asko says this is normal at start up and should stop after the drum has been spinning for a bit.

Hello Susan, Welcome to FixYa. Have you checked to see if perhaps one or both of the fuses may have blown at the back of the unit...I don't mean the hi-limit that you already referred to...I mean the in-line fuses the Asko machines are equipped with. Let me know and we can move forward from here. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Back. Takes some skill, but that is how it is done. The back comes off to do this.

Drum is not turning. Heat works


Sounds like the belt has broken or come off. This is usually inexpensive to fix. You just need to get it out in the open to replace.
