Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

I don't know how far you've gone but I can tell you 2 of the most likely reason your Asko dryer will not start.

The first place I'd direct you, would be at the back of the dryer to check the fuses, there are two 15A - 240V slo-blow fuses. In fact both possibilities will be confirmed or dismissed at the back of the unit.

If you look at the back as I alluded to by the power cord you'll see two small gray disc/button looking items, these are the fuse holders.
i.e.
dryer will not turn on: is there a fuse that can - macmarkus_191.jpg

.
**Be sure to turn off the power to the dryer or unplug it from the wall before performing any service suggested here please...safety first**

( Alternately you can switch the fuse with a known good fuse to verify if it is blown )

it may require some giggling to get it out as they have been known to get "stuck" from heat.

Once out this is similar to what you should be presented with...

i.e.

If you remove this fuse from the holder and measure the continuity, you'll know if it is any good.

The other possibility I spoke of is the hi-limit cut out thermostat. It is also located at the back of the dryer.

...either way after-wards the dryer will either start or not. If not, that wasn't the problem or it will start and you're up and running.

Keep me posted how you make out, what you find or if in fact you require further assistance.

Thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided here today. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Is there any indication of power? Lit LEDs or light coming on inside the dryer chamber? If you have power and it's not the fuses, look at the door switch. If the door switch has broken off its mounts or is damaged, the dryer won't start.

Check to make sure that the outlet has voltage to it. it could also be a bad or tripped breaker at the fuse box.

How do i replace the thermal fuse


Hello there
Unplug your dryer from its electrical outlet. make sure that all electricity has been disconnected from your dryer before moving on

turn off the gas valve that supplies gas to your dryer. Remove the gas flex line at the shut-off valve using an adjustable wrench.


Remove your dryer's back panel. take out the screws on the back of the dryer and the panel will come free. set the panel and screws aside until you are ready to replace them.


locate the thermal fuse between the dryer's blower housing and exhaust. the thermal fuse looks like a white plastic strip with two connected wires.


unplug the wires connected to the thermal fuse.


remove the screw that secures the thermal fuse to your dryer. set the screw aside and discard the broken thermal fuse.


replace the thermal fuse screw to attach the new replacement thermal fuse to your dryer.


reconnect the wires to the thermal fuse.

My maytag pyet344ayw dryer will turn on but no heat comes out


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

Gas dryer does not turn on , first it would not heat. but it did turn on and blow air but no heat . know it doesnt turn on at all.


HI, check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).


**The most common issue here will be a defective Thermal fuse

Kenmore 70 series dryer wont heat up and wont stop running


For a gas dryer, check the following


1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.


For a electric dryer, check the following

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Kenmore dryer model 64602 wont turn on???


Check the thermal fuse on the rear of the dryer.
Remove the rear panel. The thermal fuse is 1 and 1/2 inches long by 1/2 inch wide. White in color and located just left of the dryer exhaust vent. 2 purple wires. Jump the wires together and start the dryer. If it runs, replace the thermal fuse.

Gorenje Tumble Dryer WT 881 - how do I replace heating element fuse?


I would start with house fuses or breakers, if breakers then turn breakers off then back on several times then try the dryer again. Then I would check the cord where it connects to the dryer. After that I would start checking elements, thermal overloads/cutoffs, etc. most dryers have several normally closed t'stat/ overloads and a thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse or cutoff is blown you also need to check your venting. these safety fuses are not resettable and are usually an indication that the vent may be clogged and/or obstructed.
