One of the most common causes of what you`re describing on an Asko dryer is lint build up or static sheets getting into and on the blower wheel or the blower wheel has been busted some how. To check you`ll need to remove the lower panel so first things first...**Unplug the unit from the source or shut off the power at the breaker panel**
With the power now off, remove the 2 philips (star) or torx head screws at the bottom on either side of the panel. Once that is removed you`ll see a white plastic housing which is the vent/exhaust duct.
On this duct there is a small round cover to the left which provides access to the blower, but you may need to remove a sensor/thermistor held in place (and can be hidden in fact) with black puddy, so you`ll need to observe and handle it carefully. The small round cover will be held in place with clips molded into the plastic, a small flat/spaded screw driver will be required to remove the cover.
Once the cover is removed you`ll know almost immediately if the blower is full of lint (or anything else) and causing an unbalanced or excessive vibrating scenario.
Also check the blower nut/fastener to insure it hasn`t come loose or the blower shaft isn`t cracked or become rounded because it should be in the shape of a D where it slides onto the motor shaft.
That is the most common occurrence with the Asko dryer`s when it comes to vibrating. It can manifest from any number of thing`s though really, such as...worn drum rollers or roller shaft`s. Worn rear drum bearing or belt, and even belt tensioner (idler pulley).
I`ve just explained the likeliest cause with the blower wheel, so try that and let me know how it goes.
Hope that help`s you out. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a T711 asko dryer. When I push the start button it makes the sound when the dryer has completed its cycle. There is a "signal" button that you can depress to let you know the dryer is finishe
Hello & Welcome to FixYa Kevin
If you have already cleaned the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair. It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
