Question about Asko Dryers

1 Answer

I have an asko dryer model t760 that overheated the other day. it did finally trip the overheat protection switch on the back, but it did get hot enough to distort a few plastic pieces and put flat spots in the drum rollers. the dryer is about 8 years old, lint filters are cleaned after each load, duct work is clear-also has booster fan in duct work that is working fine. could the problem be somthing like a stuck heater coil relay?

    thanks for the input.

    I did end up replacing the overheat protection swithch and the heater coil relay and everything has been working fine since. The parts were pretty cheap coming straight from asko.

    I also have started washing the lint filter monthly.

Try taking the lint filter out and gently washing it with a soft scrubber. The screening is very fine and it might look clean to sight but might still need a more thorough cleaning.

I have an Asko T700 dryer which is working fine except tripping after half or less of drying time. I can reset and it dries for a while longer, usually tripping again. I have cleaned out the lint and...

Well, if the vents are perfectly clean and unobstructed the only thing I can think of is that the thermal switch designed to turn off unit when overheating is opening prematurely.
Might have to be replaced.

I have an ASKO T760 Dryer that continually overheats and then shuts down. I have had a service tech out twice - once to clean the vent and element housing and a second time to clean the "thermister" but...

Check the sensor inside the condenser unit "cage". I read that you can clean inside the little cage with a toothpick. I'm having the same trouble, and plan on trying this before I throw in the towel and purchase a new dryer.

Asko t760 display panel

My Asko T761 had the same problem, power button lights up but the LCD panel if off. This is not the fuse becuase I replaced with "new fuse replacement kit" provide by Asko but this did not solve my problem. All I needed to do was press the "reset button".

Dryer Won't Run

There is a little button on the back of the dryer that needs to be reset. It looks like a little black circle, just push the center and you should feel it click. Once you have the dryer running, go outside your house and check that air is flowing freely from the exit. If it is not, you have a clog in your venting or inside the machine itself, and that has caused it to overheat and trip that protection switch. Also, make sure your lint filter is VERY clean. this sounds dumb, but these askos are very picky about that. Take the screen and scrub it with a soft nylon brush with some soap and water. Also, don't use dryer sheets in these as they tend to clog up that screen with an oily residue. If you must use dryer sheets, at least clean that screen with soap and water on a regular basis. If the vent is not clogged and the screen is clean and the flap on the outside of your house is clear, then the machine needs to be disassembled and cleaned out internally if ti keeps tripping that switch. Hope This Helps!
