Question about Asko T701 Electric Dryer
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.
**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 email@example.com.
Hope this helps move you forward. I will watch for your reply.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck.
