20 Most Recent Asko T721 Electric Dryer Questions & Answers

If you have a condensate tank that fills up too much the float inside the pump housing will shut the dryer off also.

You may have an open thermostat or burned out heater element. The easiest and safest way to diagnose the problem is to unplug the dryer, open the control panel, and use an ohmmeter to check for resistance between the temperature selector switch and the opposite leg of the 240 V plug. If it's open at both the medium and low heat terminals, check the thermostats. You'll probably need a wiring diagram to identify the connections - they're color-coded to make it easier.

Same problem. You need to empty the condensor. Take the bottom panel off the front of the unit. Place a LARGE towel under the dryer to catch all the water that is going to spill out. Move the 2 red tabs to the right & SLOWLY open the panel. Allow the excess water to drain into the towel, then fully open the panel. Have a bucket handy to catch the water as you remove the condensor. Slide the condensor out & drop the back end into the bucket to catch as much water as possible. Then take the condensor to the laundry tub & rinse it out thoroughly. Re-assemble. Next time you switch the dryer on, just check that you get a short burst of water from the drain hose. You will probably have to do this every 5-10 loads.

Hello and welcome to Fixya, have you checked the manual reset hi-limit cut-out at the back of the dryer ? It`s located on the back panel about 1/2 to 3/4 the way down and will look like a small round black rubber button. Push it to see if it "clicks" and then try your dryer. **What to look for if it`s tripped... 1) Plugged venting - make sure your venting is clean and clear of lint or un-obstructed where it exhaust`s outdoors. 2) Plugged lint screen - ( part # 8061812 ) This is especially relevant if one uses fabric/static sheets as they contain wax...especially lesser name brand sheets. You can clean the lint screen by removing it from the door and with some mild soap and hot/warm water wash it...an old toothbrush works well for cleaning it. Careful not to rip the fine screen. 3) The blower wheel/fan impeller ( part # 8055200 ) attached to the front of the motor which moves the air through and over the clothes in the drum may be loose, broken or covered in lint, hence causing the hi-limit to trip. 4) A faulty heating element ( part # 8063808 ) can also cause the hi-limit to trip as well. If the element is shorted to the casing it will not cycle "off" via the 115°C (part # 8008807 ) cycling thermostat, thus cycling off via the hi-limit 150°C ( part # 8008487 ). Let me know how that works or if you`ve already tried that. If it is tripped, resetting it may only temporarily resolve your problem since it is usually tripped due to venting or heater issues. If it is not tripped let me know and we can explore other possibilities. good luck. macmarkus :)

Awful noise that sounds like its out off balance comes when the belt is either broken or worn out and needs replacement. If you want to do this yourself then you can check this video on youtube, its just an example though:

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description I`d direct you to first check the hi-temp cut out at the back...if you haven`t already.

It will look like this on the Asko dryers...


If you push this to reset and the unit works, great. I would keep an eye on it though since the hi-limit typically trips for a reason such as a plugged lint filter, plugged vent ot partially plugged or the heater itself is plugged up with lint.

Take the lint filter and clean it under some warm water and soap as they do become plugged with wax over time due to fabric softener and static sheets...when present/used regularly

If it doesn`t run after-wards or it`s not tripped, you`ll need to investigate for a faulty heater element. This is quite involved, so we`ll cross that bridge when you get there...if necessary.

Keep me posted on your progress or what you find and I'll help in whatever manner I can. Good luck.

Didn't I just answer this question?????

Check your exhaust duct to assure it is absolutely clear. If yours is a machine that has driness sensors, clean them according to the manufacturers instruction.

Thank you for your question @ FixYa.com

I suggest you check the exhaust system to make sure it is clear. Secondly, is yours a drier that has a sensor that determines when to shut off? If so, clean your sensors according to the manufacturers direction.

Thank you for your question @ FixYa.com
