The black goes to the L connection the others are a guess. You can do this two ways. Connect the colored wires in any sequence and then see what switch sequence give you high and lowest, the other one will be medium. Once you determine that, mark the wires with a piece of masking tape as high, medium and low. Otherwise you connect them, turn power on and use a multimeter to see which color gives you the highest voltage and which gives you lowest. Since you aren't comfortable using live wires and a meter, go with the first option and use the process of elimination to find the wires giving you the speeds you need to find the highest and lowest. Next, you need to determine how your switch sequence works. First pull has to give you highest speed. so you may end up wiring them in reverse if your first attempt is backwards. There is a reason the first pull needs to be highest, it powers up the motor so you can then chose a lower setting. A low setting first will over tax your motor and wear it out eventually as it has to work harder at first.

Let me know if you need further clarification and perhaps this is all you need to get fixed.

ps I checked on the Internet of a wiring diagram and I bet you did tok all to no avail.

Rotate the iTrip AutoPilot FM Transmitter controller so that its buttons are facing up and its data cable is on the left side. The data cable wires attach to a row of contact points along the left side of the circuit board as follows (from top to bottom):

1 = Purple
2 = White
3 = Blue
4 = Red
5 = Black
6 = Brown

SOURCE: I have a Maytag Dryer model # MDE5806AYW

Here is the link to the wiring diagram for your dryer, I'm assuming you are looking for the wires as they connect to the incoming power cord? They appear to be the only ones with that specific wire color code.
Hope this helps!

Where is the fuse on thr asko t712 dryer?

Look in the centre of the back of the dryer for a black rubber seal and press the seal in until you hear a click (this may not apply to your particular model of ASKO dryer). If you are lucky the circuit breaker has done it's job and saved your dryer, otherwise it has been badly damaged and will need electronic repairs to the control board.

Where is the heater located


Are you familiar with the location of the heater hi-limit for the Asko dryer ? If so, that is the location of the heater assembly, under that housing at the back panel of the unit.

**Turn off the power or unplug the unit from the wall before performing any service**.

If not, make access to the rear of the unit possible, slide it out or whatever the case may be in your situation. You`ll see the back panel has screws all around the perimeter, but also an alongated round cover with screws around it`s perimeter as well. The heater is enclosed in this housing as is the hi-limit reset-able thermostat ( covered by a round black button like rubber cover ).

**If your dryer isn`t heating, check the hi-limit first by pushing in the middle of it`s black rubber cover before dis-assembling your dryer too far.**

Hope this answer`s your question and help`s move you forward. If so please rate this info accordingly.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" today for your repair inquiries and good luck.

Will not dry after 2 hours

Hello. Actually this is not a ventless dryer, there is a vent hose whic typically comes with the appliance. If the appliance is not vented out-of-doors it should at least be vented into the room. Pull the dryer out from the wall so you can inspect the rear of it and you will see the vent hole. If need be, go to any hardware store and purchase a dryer vent kit.
Here is a clip from the Asko T712 literature.
Easy to install Simply plug it into an electrical socket and connect the ventilation hose provided.

My dryer wont stay hot

Check for a faulty high limit thermostat. It is a small round black device mounted on a metal plate. It is usually mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws. It can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohm meter. It should have no continuity. If it has continuity, it is stuck open and is faulty. I am attaching a pic showing a thermal fuse and high limit thermostat for reference. Hope this helps and best wishes.

I need to know if a new Asko Dryer will stack with my old washer

The exterior size hasn't changed and the plug to run the washer is the same so I don't see a problem. A good retailer can check this for you , but I haven't seen any difference in the stacking kits.
