my db asm keeps on getting filled up to the max with archivelogs. Isn't there an auto delete option where it will delete the ones that are not being used?

Deleting archived redo logs is part of your backup strategy.  ASM really doesn't have anything to do with it.

How are you backing up the database?

We're doing a hot back up every night. Sorry to clarify this is for our production reporting database. The reporting database doesn't get backed up very often so I know deleting the archivelogs that are only 2 or so days old can be dangerous. Is there any other options to make sure that the archivelogs are deleted before ASM fills up?

Not that I'm aware of to do this 'automatically' unless you write/schedule your own procedure.

Maybe another Expert will know of a way later.

If you can afford to corrupt your backups by randomly deleting archived redo logs, does that database even need to be in archive log mode?
