Asko Dryer Major Issues

Asko Dryer Motor Failure

Experiencing motor failure in your Asko Dryer can be frustrating, but before seeking professional help, consider these DIY solutions to troubleshoot the issue:

  1. Check Power Supply: Ensure the dryer is properly plugged in and that there’s a stable power supply. Sometimes, a loose connection or power surge can affect the motor’s performance.
  2. Reset the Dryer: Turn off the dryer, unplug it, and wait for a few minutes before plugging it back in. This can sometimes reset the internal components, including the motor.
  3. Inspect for Obstructions: Examine the dryer drum for any items that might be obstructing its movement. Foreign objects can sometimes cause the motor to struggle.
  4. Belt Examination: If your dryer uses a belt to drive the motor, check for any signs of wear or breakage. A damaged belt can prevent the motor from functioning correctly.
  5. Test the Start Switch: The start switch initiates the motor’s operation. Check if it’s functioning properly by pressing and holding the switch during the drying cycle.
  6. Lubricate Motor Bearings: Over time, motor bearings may become stiff. Apply a small amount of lubricant to the bearings if your dryer’s motor is accessible for such maintenance.
  7. Inspect Wiring Connections: Ensure all wiring connections related to the motor are secure. Loose or damaged wires can disrupt the motor’s performance.
  8. Thermal Fuse Check: Some dryers have a thermal fuse that can shut off power to the motor if it overheats. Check and replace the fuse if necessary.
  9. Consult the User Manual: Refer to the Asko Dryer’s user manual for specific troubleshooting tips and diagrams related to the motor.

Remember, safety is paramount. If you’re uncomfortable or unsure about any DIY repair, it’s best to consult with a professional technician.
