Question about Asko Dryers
According to my research, when this dryer shows the "maximum time reached" alert it could be due to the humidity sensor. I have located the thermistor, but the humidity sensor is nowhere to be found. I have not been able to locate a service manual for the T702C model specifically.

usually whin you get one thump (or a quick double thump) you have a dent in the roller surface of the drum itself. Easiest way to check this is to unplug the unit and take the top off by removing the 3 torx screws in the rear, then lifting the top off. Once the top is off look at the very front edge of the drum as you rotate the whole thing by hand. If you see any irregularities on the surface, thats your problem. If you see nothing it could be a bad motor or roller, but its unlikely if its happening in the same place on the rotation evry time. What has usually happened with dents in the surface of the drum is that the unit was set down too hard (or dropped) and the wheels it rests on dented the metal they ride on. If thats the case the only solution is to replace the drum or live with it .Good Luck!

The MAP sensor is located on the driver's side of the engine compartment next to the air filter housing and shock tower.
It is a small plastic component with one vacuum hose coming off of it and an electrical connector that has two wires. It might be advantageous to write in and let me and/or other techs know what the symptoms are prior to replacing the sensor. Sometimes just replacing the part is a waste of money. The fact that the code has indicated the problem is the MAP sensor, doesn't mean it is bad. As an example, check to see if the Vacuum hose is secure and not disconnected or split at either end.

Try opening the bottom vent panel and pulling out the filter box (there are directions and handles)... hold the filter under running hot water for a while and you should see all this nasty stuff come out. Worked for me!

Have you checked the 15amp fuses which are located at the back of your Asko dryer ?
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.
Hope that is helpful. If so please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know what you find or if you require further assitance.
Thank`s for visiting fixya today and good luck.

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.
