Question about Asko T701 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

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?

There are two thermal switches on the duct; 40 and 60 degree. How do I tell which is which?

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.

Asko dryer running but no heat after changing drive belt


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

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

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.
