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.

    Thanks,

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!

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.

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.

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.
