Hi
The drum of the dryer is usually turned by a motor-and-belt assembly. There are two very clear signs that the belt is malfunctioning: You can easily spin the drum by hand when the dryer is off, or you hear a heavy thumping sound coming from the drum when the dryer is running. Here's how to test and replace the drum belt:

Step 1: Locate the belt by removing the back or front service panel. Depending on the type of dryer you own, you may have to prop up the drum to keep it from sagging. Don't let the drum hang; the bolts that hold it in the cabinet could be damaged. Don't remove any more parts than necessary.

Step 2: Identify the belt. The old belt may be threaded around the idler pulley and motor drive shaft. Draw a diagram showing how the pulley is installed so you'll be able to replace it properly. If the old belt is worn or frayed, but not broken, leave it around the drum as a pattern for positioning the new belt; cut the old belt and remove it when the new belt is in position.

Step 3: Remove the old belt from the pulleys and stretch the replacement belt into place. The new belt must extend around the dryer drum and the pulleys. The trick is to align the belt on the drum with the pulleys -- the ribs on the new belt go against the drum.

Step 4: Once the belt is aligned, turn the drum by hand, if possible, to make sure the belt is tracking. You may have to reassemble part of the cabinet to do this.

My Asko dryer is thumping loudly. I am finding bits of rubber when the lower panel is removed.


You need to have your drum rollers replaced, they are making the noise because they are falling apart.
Also it could be or include the drum belt breaking down and falling apart...which means its about to break.
Normally pretty cheap parts can be found on the net...look around.
Its a pretty easy fix.

Inteli dry regular cycle, timer gets stuck and won't advance. other cycles work fine. thanks


An unusual noise coming from a running clothes dryer can cause concern, although these noises are rarely indicative of a more serious problem. Once the source of the noise has been located, a few simple repairs or adjustments will usually solve the problem and restore peace to your laundry room.

    Gas
  1. A gas dryer may emit an occasional clicking sound. This noise is caused by the gas valve and is a normal operating sound. The clicking sound coming from the gas valve can not be eliminated and it does not indicate any mechanical problem with the dryer.
  2. Warm Up
  3. A newly installed dryer, or a dryer that has been left unused for a period of time, may exhibit a thumping noise during the first few minutes of the drying cycle. According to the Maytag company, this noise is normal and should not be a cause for concern. If the noise continues for more than a few minutes or repeats on subsequent loads, however, then steps should be taken to locate the origin of the noise.
  4. Clothing
  5. Clothing can become knotted and balled up in the clothes dryer. This can cause vibration or a load thumping noise. When this happens, open the dryer and remove the knotted clothing. Separate the articles of clothing and place them back in the dryer. The thumping noise should not continue unless the clothing has become knotted again.
  6. Vibration
  7. Place your hands on top of the dryer and push down firmly; if the dryer tilts to one side, the clothes dryer is not level. This can cause the dryer to vibrate during the cycle and if the vibration is severe enough, the surrounding walls could be damaged by the dryer. Maytag dryers have four leveling legs installed into holes on the bottom of the dryer. These legs are included with the dryer and should have been screwed into the holes during installation. A wrench can be used to adjust the legs until the dryer is stable and level.
  8. Foreign Objects
  9. Small objects such as coins, buttons, or paperclips can become lodged between the drum and the sides of the clothes dryer. These items usually end up in the dryer after being left in clothing pockets during laundering. Turn the dryer off and remove any clothes to a laundry basket. Allow the dryer to cool down so that you won't burn your hand on any metal surfaces inside the dryer which may be hot. Look inside the dryer and pay special attention to the front and rear edges of the dryer drum. Run your fingers along the grooves where the drum connects to the dryer to locate any foreign objects. These objects could be bouncing around the dryer causing noise during the cycle, and then settling into the grooves when the dryer stops making them difficult to locate. Remember to remove all items from clothing pockets before laundering in the future to avoid this problem.

ASKO washer WL6511XXLPP


Purchased ASKO Washer WL6511XXLP and Gas Dryer with pedestals, 12/01/09. It threw a drum paddle during 2nd. wash cycle. Damaged several articles of clothing.
ASKO replaced the paddle 2/19/09 after a lot of phone calls (lip service from the ASKO 800 #). They claimed the part had to come from Sweden (reason for delay).
Washer threw another drum paddle during 4th. wash cycle. Damaged several more articles of clothing. We have made no claim for the damaged clothing, the retailer has been cooperative.

ASKO has promised to replace the washer after the retailer we purchased the washer from, strongly encouraged them to do so. We are still without a washer (03/23/09). My wife and I are retired, I am 76. Point being; we do not abuse washing machines and we don't like going to a launder-mat.
I know this is not the venue to address this problem, but am at my wits end.

Our Asko dryer (T720) has begun to make a heavy thumping noise, even if empty. (Sounds like a single wet & heavy object is in dryer)


Usually the drum rollers wear on that model making a thumping noise. The asko is a tough machine to work on. You may need a technician to service it.
