In Topic: Asko T700 stops when release power button redux...

OK -- I can hang my head in shame.  I went back and checked the terminal block and I had one connection incorrect.  Changed and now works like a million bucks.

Alright, now I am downright ornery.  I got the new heater element yesterday and just finished replacing it.  Same thing.  Push button and have to hold it in to keep the thing running.  Release and it stops.  Still does not appear to be heating at all either.  What in the world? I tend to be really stubborn about these kinds of things but this is getting frustrating.  What next?  Start button?  Does am pretty certain the terminal block is wired correctly.  Never had problems like this before.

Even with a beer I don't see a switch on the motor.  I have seen them on other dryers but I don't see it on my Asko.

Hi Doc,

 

Not yet.  Once I found the bad heater I started contemplating whether it was worth fixing and whether I should get a beer.  I'll maybe get that beer and dig a little deeper to the switch and check it.

Hmm.  In taking it apart I was cleaning lint out the heater assembly and find that one of the heating coils is broken.  I'm suspecting I have found the source of the problem with both the lack of heat and the dryer stopping as soon as I release the power button.  Rats.  Asko parts are so darned expensive.  $113 just for the heater assembly.  Trying to figure out at what point I stop putting money into a 13 year-old dryer with a bad reputation.
