Question about Asko T781 Electric Dryer

Drum makes a clunking sound when rotating, even when empty

On my 6 year old Asko T760, the drum has a slight amount of vertical play and this results in the clunking sound as it rotates. I expect some guides for the drum need to be adjusted. Can i do this myself?

    Same problem on the T760. Could you identify the roller location and how to change. A explosion diagram would be helpful along with part numbers.

    Have removed the top and front panels.

This machine has roller wheels in the front that are not adjustable, but rather need to be replaced if they have a bad spot or something. Usually what I see with a clunking noise(clunks once or maybe two quick clunks in succession) is that the dryer has been set down hard on the ground and has put two dents in the roller surface of the drum. To check this, just unplug it, pop the top off (3 screws in the back and tilt it up) and look at the very front edge of the drum. rotate the drum by hand (carefully so you dont pop off the belt) and look for any imperfections in the suface, such as dents. If you are getting more of a vibration type of noise, I would also suggest taking off the lower front cover then taking of the blower wheel cover located to the left side and checking that there is no lint built up in the blower wheel as well. Good Luck!

My Asko W 6761 just put oil spots all over my sheets. What is wrong? It appears to have happened in the spin cycle

What can happen is that the main and only bearing on which the drum rotates, can start to break up after time, and, of course, the bearing is full of grease. This could be the problem.
It would also be the reason for the spin to be all over the place as the bearing is not holding the drum properly any more.
A call to a Repair man or Service seems necessary I'm afraid.

How to Replace the belt for a Asko T700 Dryer?

I have a T760, and the way I do it is to take the top off (3 screws in the back and slide it out from under the front lip), take some pics of the wiring so I'll know where they go (they're marked, but pics still help), and take the back off (perimeter screws). The drum bearing is mounted in the back, so I have to tap the drum shaft thru the bearing (take the washer off and put the nut back on so it is flush with the end of the threads). Asko has a special tool to hold the drum in place while the back is off, but I made one out of a coat hanger (a hook on one end to hang on the lip of the drum, bend a couple of right angles to fit thru the holes in the front panel, make it before the back comes off). The real hassle is holding the drum in place while reinstalling the back and the tool does this nicely. The belt has a spring loaded tensioner, make sure the wheel and bearing are ok, put it back together, and you're back in business...

ASKO T760; Drum "Thumps" rapidly

I have replaced the drive belt and rollers, to replace front support rollers you need to take drum out to gain access to them. the part that takes the longest is removing rear panel, the 4 screws around the drum bearing and the screws that hold heating element to the rear panel. Then you can rotate rear panel out of the way, having a small stool or chair for it to sit on makes it a whole lot easier. With this out of the way you can remove drive bely from drum and lift it out of the way. The rubber rollers sre held in by bolts with nylon nuts on the front, be careful when taking out the bolts that you don't knock the nut out of its holder, if this happens you will need to remove the screws around the inner door opening to be able to put the left side one back in. I had the dryer laying on it door to remove the drum an belt, then placed it in the normal position to change the rollers.
Hope this helps, took about 45 minuetes, I'm not a appliance tech.

Recently, my Asko W6661 started making high pitch squecking / squeching noises while the drum is rotating during a wash cycle. This sound is not apparent during a spin cycle, where the drum is rotating...

First: Check the belt. A quick spray with some specific belt lubricant may fix the issue (or you could try another belt) or...
This could be a sign of bearing failure in these machines.If the belt solution above does not help then I would suggest having the machine serviced as failure to do so will just result in more damage being done. The noise you can hear is flat spots (damage) on a part of the bearing

I have an asko dryer model t760 that overheated the other day. it did finally trip the overheat protection switch on the back, but it did get hot enough to distort a few plastic pieces and put flat spots...

Try taking the lint filter out and gently washing it with a soft scrubber. The screening is very fine and it might look clean to sight but might still need a more thorough cleaning.

H1 - is this normal ?

I haven't ever noticed anything like that with my camera. There is a slight amount of play on my lens though.
