Question about Asko T701 Electric Dryer

Asko T701 Runs for full cycle but does not dry

Dryer only heats up to around 100degrees F no matter which heat setting it is on. Clothes run for over 90minutes and still come out wet (especially towels). Vent hose is clean and has good air flow.

    My ASKO dryer gets barely warm which results in very long drying times. It is my understanding there are termostats that may go wrong. If that is the case, where are they and how do I get to them?

Thermal cuttouts(thermal fuse or half a dozen other names for the same thing) on the exhaust duct look like this Asko T701 Runs for full cycle but does not dry - 088c0f1.jpg or this 89f91e6.jpg, the high temp one is blown.
locate and test with ohmmeter or bulb and battery

replace, not a repairable item, but inexpensive,
there are very few cutouts common to many dryer models
the local parts guy will have one to suit even if marked frigidaire or ge

while the dryer is open is a good time to de-lint the fan and exhaust ducting to the outside wall to prevent recurrence

    Sorry for the delayed response

    60degree thermostat has failed

    40degreeC is 100F 40degree thermostat is working

    remove wall plug, 220v is not fun

    remove one wire from the thermostat under test

    with ohmmeter, zero (or nearly) ohms good, hi ohms fail replace

    with battery and bulb: light on good, no light fail replace

Dryer stops when clothes still wet

Check and make sure that the hose leading out of the dryer is clean and clear. Clogs will make the dryer not work to its full potential. Also make sure that the heating element is not going out on the dryer.

Asko T701 dryer not heating up during drying cycle. Have already checked thermostats which are ok. Where do I find the heating element? Is a diagram available?


Welcome to FixYa.

I hope to clarify the thermostat's you refer to. Attached below is the location of the cycling thermostat`s ( I suspect these are the ones you checked ? correct me if I'm wrong ) but there is one many people miss and are unaware of also shown below, that is the hi-limit safety.
The location of the reset-able safety thermostat in the second image, It is on the back wall under the black rubber cap I`m pointing at in the 2nd photo.

Cycling in front blower

Hi-limit reset-able thermostat.

There is a possibility the heating element is at fault of course, but I'd like to clarify you've ruled out the hi-limit before proceeding to the heater check/repair.
Thanks for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to leave a testimony and rate the info I provided.

Good luck.

My admiral dryer runs but has stopped drying the clothes to where I have to run the load five or six times and when I take out the clothes they are cool instead of warm. It does this with every drying...

either your heat cycling switch,hi-limit switch,thermistor or part of your element is defective or you don't have full 240 volts to operate your dryer i.e. only 1 leg of 120 volts it will run in some cases but will heat poorly

Asko t701 dryer makes exsessive noise and drum rotates slowly

Mine was very noisy. Then I found the impeller clogged with lint. I cleaned it and now the noise is gone.

Remove the lower panel (2 Torx T20 screws).
Remove the impeller cover (1 Torx T10 screw and 4 snaps).
Clean impeller.
Reinstall covers. Don't overtighten screws.

Dryer air heats up but does not dry the clothes. Just replaced the timer but did not fix the problem. Air vents are cleared.

One of two possiblities:

1. Dryer vent is blocked - check the air coming through the outside vent
2. Blower Fan is clogged - remove the lower front panel and clean out the fan wheel

Asko Washer/Dryer (WCAM 1812); Dryer not working.

Update: The dry cycle is now working! Apparently the automatic overload/shut off on the heating element got tripped. We had a technician out this morning. He unplugged the machine, removed the top of the unit, and simply pushed a little red/orange button that was on top of the heating element. When we plugged it back in the heating element worked again. The technician was able to troubleshoot this by checking the amps while running the dry cycle. But the proof was really when we did a load and the machine heated up (just like it used to) during the dry cycle. This was actually a relatively simply fix - though could be dangerous as you have to open up the electrical area. The reset button is rather inconspicuous and located on top of the heating element, which is long (runs front to back in the center part of the top of the machine - which you can get to by removing the lid/top outer housing) and silver - wrapped in insulation. It's pretty obvious. The button is in a little metal fixture on top of the heating element. The technician told us that the rest can get tripped when the unit overheats. (We think this happened when the laundry tub overfilled and the hose was totally submerged - the machine was working overtime to pump out the water.) The technician also warned that this can happen if the machine gets turned off suddenly mid-cycle - especially during the drying cycle. He said that the heating element gets so hot, it needs to have a gentle cool down period, which is marked on the dryer dial for the last 20 minutes of the cycle. I hope this helps others!

Not getting any heat @ all in dryer.

You aren't giving me much to work with to help you. If possible, can you provide the Brand and Model number of your dryers so that I can assist? I can't tell from your post if they are gas or electric and that would dictate the repair tactic for them.. Please provide those kinds of details.
