Question about Asko T711 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

When putting clothes in the dryer, we noticed that it does not spin to dry. The power is on, and we can feel the heat, but does not spin. When I took half the load out of the dryer, it worked liked it always had. The problem seems like it is a weight issue. We have had this dryer almost 5 years, and never had a problem with it before. Outside of washing and drying small loads, what would you suggest? Thank you.

SOURCE: Clothes dryer not getting hot enough to dry in a good time frame

I have the same issue with my DLG3788W dryer. It seem to have only one setting for heat, rather than multiple heat settings. What can I do or do I have to call someone to repair this.

SOURCE: Clothes are not getting dried.

Check your dryer ducting.  If you have not cleaned your dryer ducting recently, it may be time to do so.  In order for a dryer to work correctly, it needs proper air flow.  A lot of people don't realize that just seeing the heating element glowing and the air blower fan running isn't enough to get your clothes dry.  If the dryer does not have a proper exhaust the air has no where to go.  All that air that is normally exhausted out of the dryer vent carries all the moisture from your clothes with it.  If the exhaust is clogged, all that moisture stays in the dryer and the dryer works harder to try to heat.  Your clothes stay wet and, eventually, your thermal cut-out and/or heating element will blow.  You could also have a clog somewhere inside the air baffle in the dryer.  This is where the exhaust fan is.  Lint can get trapped in this area clog up your dryer.  Here's a simple test you can perform:

1. Remove the exhaust ducting from the back of the dryer and dry one load in this manner, letting the dryer exhaust freely into your laundry room or garage.  Feel the air leaving the exhaust port on the back of the dryer.  The air should eventually heat up and be rather forceful.  If your clothes dry faster, then you know you have a clog somewhere in the ducting.  You will need to trace it all the way to where it leaves your home at the exhaust vent outside.  If it is run in a crawl space, make sure it is suspened from the rafters and not on the ground.  Leaving it on the ground makes it susceptable to rodents wanting to chew through to get inside your dryer.  Dryers provide a great source of warmth and bedding material (lint) and mice love them.  Also ensure thre are no sags in the line that will create areas for lint to collect.  If you find that your clothes are drying better, take care of the problem immediately.  Running a dryer for extended periods of time exhausting in your home can add unwanted humidity, dust and potential mildew.

2.  If your dryer still is not drying sufficiently, or you have very weak air flow coming out of the rear exhaust port.  You will need to remove the air baffle housing and check for clogs.  I experienced a home where a dryer would not heat, but the ducting was clear all the way to the exterior vent.  The heating element was also heating properly.  When I removed the ducting, however, there was barely any air coming out of the dryer.  When I inspected the air baffle housing I found a mouse nest as big as a shoe box and compacted to the point that I had to disassemble the unit to get it out.  You will find that MOST insufficient drying problems are directly related to the cleanliness of your dryer interior and your dryer ducting.  Not to mention, the potential for house fires if you do not maintain a dryer properly.  I have also found situations where lint became so backed up in a dryer that there was evidence of multiple fires inside the dryer.  Take the time to double check your dryer venting and replace those old plastic worn out vent hoses with new semi-rigid metal hoses.  They resist crimping and crushing and will not clog as easily.

NOTE: It is normal for the heating element to cycle on and off.  This is actually a symptom of a "healthy drying cycle".

I hope this information is helpful to you.  If you find no obvious signs of clogs or obstructions, let me know.  You may have something else causing your problem.

SOURCE: Clothes do not get dry when using the sensor dry setting on GE dryer.

Ok, Jeff, I see you have a front loader, electric. On this model we have inlet thermistors, outlet thermistors, and the sensor bars are non serviceable, which means they are part of the blower housing. Not a big deal. Let's put it into a test mode and test the voltage drop of the sensors. They are on the inside of the drum just below the vent gate. 2 bars. Unplug the dryer for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and within 10 seconds press in this order: signal button, delay start, signal button again and delay start again. The consol should show t01. This is test 1. You want to turn the main dial clockwise until the test shows t09, this will be the sensor test. With the drum dry it should show around 5 volts DC. Now take a wet rag and place it over the bars, the display should show a voltage drop to around .5 or 1volt DC. If it does this the sensor is working properly. See if you can run this test successfully and post back. Catriver.

SOURCE: Drum is not turning. Heat works

Sounds like the belt has broken or come off. This is usually inexpensive to fix. You just need to get it out in the open to replace.

SOURCE: 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

Dryer does not heat correctly code F31


The thermostat which is a round 2 wire control on the blower box on the back of the dryer controls the heat on all dryers. always shut off power when checking any electrical appliance. Clothes dryers are wired with 2 voltages, The 240 volt supply is for the heating element only, while the 120 volt supply gives power to the timer and motor that spins the drum and powers any lights and switches. If the heating element is coming on, try replacing the thermostat. As always unplug the dryer first.

My dryer is Tcm570 it started leaking water on the floor while clothes are drying, then not drying after circulation. But if I try to put it on now it turns all the power in the house off. What's


There are a lot of parts to this problem: First don't plug it in again or try to restart it...yet, Make sure before you reset the circuit breaker that you unplug the dryer. So now your home should be fine! The dryer is another story... I have answered this problem for others and with other dryers... Please focus on your washer, there should be very little water that remains in your clothes after the wash cycle and the clothes should Definitely not be dripping. Check to see that your spin cycle is working and if necessary run it through the spin cycle again. You may be overloading the washer. Back to the dryer...NO water should EVER drip from a dryer! If you do not wish to call a service person I would wait about 1 1/2 weeks for the dryer to dry itself and give the dryer another try after that and set it for Air dry only (no heat) if you don't have a problem at that point then stop the dryer and set it for a low heat cycle and try again. I think at that point you should be OK? If you do have problems.. you will have to call in a service person. But please remember clothes should be quite dry coming from the washer before going into the dryer.

Whirlpool dryer is not drying properly. Have to go through a couple of cycles to dry clothes.


2 things are needed to dry clothes. 1 is good air flow. Check to make sure that the dryer vent is not clogged or partially clogged with lint. Also make sure there are no kinks in the vent hose. With the dryer running you should feel good air flow blowing out of the outside house vent. The 2nd thing a dryer needs heat. Check to see that the dryer feels warm to hot when you reach in to tough the clothes. It is possible that the heat element has partially failed. Another thing to investigate is how well the laundry machine is spinning out the water in the spin cycle. This spin cycle is used to get as much water out as possible prior to placing the clothes in the dryer. The wetter the clothes when they come out of the laundry, the longer it takes to dry them.

Whirlpool dryer won't dry


If your dryer spins and heats properly and the clothes don't dry, then very simply put, the moist air is not being taken away. If your drying temp is adequate, then the problem is with the exhaust. Go to where the air is being exhausted outside your home, if working properly, when you put your hand on the air coming out, it should get damp very quickly. And ALWAYS clean the lint trap after every load!!!!
