Asko T700 Electric Commercial Dryer Problem

The dryer start button has to be held down for it to continue working... it is 2nd hand, and is about 4 yrs old and worked fine for about 8-10 loads and then stopped.

I have cleaned the in wall vent.

I have vacummed the back of the unit and the interior of the exhaust vent connected to the dryer.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Same problem here with and Asko T700 that I've had for seven years. If I hold down the button, the dryer will run, but it won't heat. Both problems started at the same time. Coincidence?

    I have the same problem where the Ask T700 dryer cuts-off after 10-15 minutes of use. It'll keep drying if I hold down the start button. I have so far replace all 4 thermostats, vacuumed it inside and out. The problem still persist. Any ideas any body ??
    Thanks

    My ASKO T700 internal fuse keeps tripping even after I have cleaned the filter, exhaust vent, fan hose and the hose is straight, it is frustrating I can not rely on the dryer.

There's a reset button on the back of the dryer. It's a small black kinda rubber button about half way down the back panel near the center. push that button to reset it. should do the trick.

My asko dryer 7005 works but there is no heat. Do you think the heating element needs to be replaced? Thank you


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermostat. When the thermostat goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair.It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing, if thermostat reads continuity then please get back to me if you have any other questions.

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.

Asko 700 dryer was overheating sometimes even on low, now not heating at all.Starts, runs for a couple of minutes and shuts off


1) check and or clean you vent..
2) check air coming out of the vent...
a) if no air coming out or little amout of air ... check blower wheel ( remove toe panel. then remove blower cover.) wheel should be clean and clear ...

PS. there is a reset button on the back panel... black button about center..

hope it helps if NOT let me know more about your problem...

I had the same problem. Turns out the reset button on the back of the dryer needs to be pushed; when you push the reset button you should hear a click. If you do not hear a click the problem was probably not the reset button. The button shuts down the dryer heating elements if they are getting too hot and also keeps the drum from turning unless the start button is held down.

If you push the reset button and the dryer starts to work again, I strongly recommend that you stop the dryer and investigate why the heater elements overheated. In my case there was lint/hair build up on the heater elements themselves. Extensive dryer disassembly is required to properly clean the heating elements but it is worth the prevention of a house fire. While you're at it, clean the rest of the machine and the duct work.

Hope this helps

Noisy dryer with long dry time


check to see if the fans are loose if so replace them this will also cause poor drying time.iI find its better to dismanttle these dryers and check the rollers,belt and jockey pulley at the same time.they look hard to work on but they are easy just take you time theres generally no wires to undo.

Seems like you need new drum rollers. If one(or both) is bad, the drum will rub in the plastic.
