Question about Asko T700 Electric Commercial Dryer
Did you push the reset black rubber button on the back of the machine. When mine overheats. I have to reset it. It overheats if you have a lot of lint built up in it

I had the same problem. Turns out the reset button on the back of the dryer needs to be pushed; when you push the reset button you should hear a click. If you do not hear a click the problem was probably not the reset button. The button shuts down the dryer heating elements if they are getting too hot and also keeps the drum from turning unless the start button is held down.
If you push the reset button and the dryer starts to work again, I strongly recommend that you stop the dryer and investigate why the heater elements overheated. In my case there was lint/hair build up on the heater elements themselves. Extensive dryer disassembly is required to properly clean the heating elements but it is worth the prevention of a house fire. While you're at it, clean the rest of the machine and the duct work.
Hope this helps

How do you disassemble the dryer, to get to the heating element? I've done it once, a long time ago. I went through the back. I needed help getting it back together, and the repairman said it's usually done from the front, to access the heating element. So, I've started doing that, this time, but, I'm a bit stuck on, having gotten everything off the front, how to get the drum, which has the fan housing attached to it, and, appears to be connected to back still, out. Suggestions?
