Dryer cuts out and appears to be overheating. It

Hi bknight...

Check and clean if necessary your vent hose.
If you vent hose "seems" to be clean then,try running the dryer with the vent hose off and see if the dryer is not running hot anymore.
Make sure your lint screen is in place and has no tears or holes in it and is still firmly attached to the frame.
If you are running too hot you are not moving enough air thru the system.
It could be that the fan blade is plugged up.
The problem could be a large lint ball build up in the center of the fan or a sock,thin pants,a pen,etc. that has gotten into the fan by falling down the hole where the lint screen is normally inserted.
You have to find the air restriction to solve the problem.
It also can be a loose or worn out blower wheel/fan.
Please take time to rate me.

I have an asko T760

Hi.

The machine is telling you that there is overfill, f2 and 4 are faults with overfill system. Lights blinking, pump running and controls dead also indicate an over fill fault :

"1. Disconnect the power to the unit

2. Remove the lower access panels and check the tray under the dishwasher (you will probably find it is full of water)

3. Use a towel or a sponge to remove the water

4. There is a float that should stop the operation of the dishwasher and run the pump if water is in this tray. Check this pump to see if it is functional

5. Test the dishwasher

6. If there are no leaks from the dishwasher into the pan, check the drain hose under the sink

7. THE DRAIN HOSE MUST RUN UP TO THE TOP OF THE UNDERSIDE OF THE COUNTERTOP THEN DOWN TO THE DRAIN. (If the hose is not set up like this, water from the sink drain will flow into the dishwasher and overfill the tray"

Here all diagrams.

Regards.

Ginko.

No heat

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description "no heat" 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...

7995fe6.jpg

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.

If it doesn`t heat 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.

Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

ASKO T760; Drum "Thumps" rapidly

I have replaced the drive belt and rollers, to replace front support rollers you need to take drum out to gain access to them. the part that takes the longest is removing rear panel, the 4 screws around the drum bearing and the screws that hold heating element to the rear panel. Then you can rotate rear panel out of the way, having a small stool or chair for it to sit on makes it a whole lot easier. With this out of the way you can remove drive bely from drum and lift it out of the way. The rubber rollers sre held in by bolts with nylon nuts on the front, be careful when taking out the bolts that you don't knock the nut out of its holder, if this happens you will need to remove the screws around the inner door opening to be able to put the left side one back in. I had the dryer laying on it door to remove the drum an belt, then placed it in the normal position to change the rollers.
Hope this helps, took about 45 minuetes, I'm not a appliance tech.

Dryer will not turn on: is there a fuse that can

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.
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.

e8b960b.jpg

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.

This is what to look for...

239b394.jpg
Reach around or directly to it and push it in...it may or may not "click"...


67b485d.jpg


...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.

Dryer cut out when in use- might have overheated-

Hello, Welcome to Fixya. First things first, I'd suggest you start by checking the 15amp fuses which are located at the back of your Asko dryer. **Turn off your breaker at the home service panel, it should be a 30amp switch** That is where I`d start. They are at the back as I said located next to where the power cord exit`s the unit. Look for 2 small round slotted caps ( these are the fuse holders/hubs ) either black or gray in color. With a flat screwdriver fitted in the slot of the fuse hub, turn it a half turn counter clockwise an it should drop out...though it may need to be pulled out if it`s stuck in the holder part. Replace with a 15amp "slow blow" ( the only difference is the slow blow are filled with sand and aren`t transparent glass tubes but rather gray or white in color ) if the fuse is blown. You can find these fuses at most brick & mortar appliance part stores or on-line parts vendors such as repairclinic.com, reliableparts.ca etc. Original Asko Part number is #8058140 and you should replace both. The number may substitue to an in-store number, it really depends on the vendor, just provide your model number and you should have no trouble. Hope that is helpful. If so please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know if you require further assitance. Thank`s for visiting Fixya today and good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)

The drying turns on, but does not spin

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Sounds like it has a broken belt based on your description of your Asko dryer "The drying turns on, but does not spin".

You can visually inspect it be either removing the lower access panel or the dryer top panel, the choice is yours and either way will let you check the belt.

To go infrom the top remove the screws at the back of the top, they will be three #25 torx head screws.
Once the screws are out, slide the top towards the back slightly and lift up. You should then see something like this...

Hello Susan, Welcome to FixYa. Have you checked to see if perhaps one or both of the fuses may have blown at the back of the unit...I don't mean the hi-limit that you already referred to...I mean the in-line fuses the Asko machines are equipped with. Let me know and we can move forward from here. Regards, Macmarkus :)

The dryer is working, drum

Hello, Welcome to Fixya, Let`s start with the obvius...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... Plugged venting - make sure your venting is clean and clear of lint or un-obstructed where it exhaust`s outdoors. 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. 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. 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 ) as you stated. 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. Note The resistance value to look for on heater - 66.7/25.7ohms. The element has a maximum power rating of 2620W but consists of two loops of 1900W and 720W, which permits rewiring from 2620W to 1900W. Good luck. Macmarkus

Back. Takes some skill, but that is how it is done. The back comes off to do this.
