The Asko dryer does have a resettable thermal cutout in the rear by the element but if tripped should only interfere with the heating. Should check it anyway and reset if necessary. Check the terminal block and fuse at the power box. Make sure the drive belt is properly install on the motor and idler pulley. Most dryer motors have a centrifugal switch that can stick, not allowing the motor to continue running after energized by the start switch.
The thermal cutout has tripped in the past and resetting has been trivial and worked fine. It does not appear to be tripped at this point. Have checked and replaced fuses but I suppose I can replace them again just in case. What at the terminal block are you suggesting to check? The dryer powers on (light demonstrates it is on) and I can press the start button which results in the drum turning just fine and blower working. I do not appear to get heat, however, and as soon as I release the start button the motor stops and drum obviously stops turning.
Drive belt is fine. I've replaced it a couple of times in the past so am familiar with the process. Does not appear to be involved at this point.
As for the centrifugal switch, is that known by a different name? I don't see anything in the service manual by that name.
