My dryer just just stopped working because the tensioner arm broke off the moter housing. I'm not sure how it was originally attached (screw, pressed into the housing, etc.) and don't know how to replace - short of replacing the entire moter. Please let me know if you have encountered this problem before and how it can be fixed - preferably by me, since the machine is long out of warranty.

sounds like the plastic take-up pulley on the motor which is spring loaded to keep the drum belt tight. You will have to replace the tensioner which should, depending on the model, include a new plastic pulley.
If you continue to try to run the dryer after the automatic shut off kicks-in it will shut the cycle down with no flashing lights after the dryer reaches a critical and dangerous temperature. If the dryer is skipping immediately to this step without any flashing lights then call an Asko certified repairman as something may be wrong with the machine. If you have not tried cleaning the condensor, please do this as well. Remove the bottom housing of the dyer, move the two red handle to the right, and pull out the condensor unit. Wash it under warm/hot water using a bathtub or shower and you will see lint and dust come out by the heapful. Replace the condensor unit, wait about 30-45 minutes, and then try restarting your dry cycle.
remove the drum and check the front rollers,and the jockey pulley/belt for wear.also grease the jockey pin,you need to know how to remove the back panels on these asko dryers so you may want to ring asko to do it.remove all outer screws, centre nut and three screws left side about 3 inches up from base.hope this helps.
You have to pull the back off the dryer.Then you,ll be able to see how it comes off.Ussally its on two pulleys similar to a car.There may be a tensioner on it to to keep it from slipping.If there is one you,ll have to losen it to remove the belt & replace it,then tighten the tensioner back up.Ussally you keep about a 1/4" to 1/2" free play on the belt.You use a sraight edge on the two pulleys to measure it with the belt on,tighten belt tensioner till you have the recommended tighteness.
