Greetings all,

While I think I'm still winning the war with my ASKO washer/dryer, I'm definitely losing the current battle with my TD33 dryer.

Here's the scenario:
1) Dryer starts, runs briefly then stops. When it stops, the thermo-reset switch on the back is still OK (not tripped), but the electronic display on the front goes blank, the red led next to the on/off switch on the front goes out. Turning the dryer on & off again does not help. But, waiting does.
2) Roughly 5-10 min later, turning the dryer on & off brings said dryer back to life, whereby it will happily start, run briefly then shutoff again.
3) Repeat step 1.

Here's what I've done:
1) Replaced the motor. I figured it was 11 years old, couldn't hurt and might help. It didn't (help).
2) Pulled the dryer out, taken the top off and verified that all wiring matches the diagram (eg: ruled out a lose connection).

Can anyone suggest a troubleshooting path? I'm suspect of the motor relay or perhaps the board. I can get around OK with the multimeter and have studied the wiring diagram, just not sure where to start.

Thanks and hope your Saturday is excellent.
Mark

Have you checked for 240v at the Wall Outlet and at the Dryer Terminal Strip ?

and 120v between Outer Terminals and Center Terminal ?

Also, check/inspect/tighten the Nuts on the Terminal Strip on the back of the Dryer (unplugged)

Thanks for the reply.

I tested for power at the outlet and worked my way along various components until I reached the push button switch, where I misread the wiring diagram and managed to blow both fuses- melting one of the holders.

The good news is that after picking up two suitably rated inline fuses @ RadioShack and wiring them in, the dryer is once again working fine.

Perhaps one of the fuses or fuse holders was flaky? Seems unlikely, but until the gremlins reappear, the dryer's back in action.

Asko wiring diagrams  :ooo:

Fuse Holders have been a problem for other users...
