Question about Asko T701 Electric Dryer

Noisy, wobbly Asko dryer

Asko dryer just started wobbling noisily and it looks as though the drum is out of alignment. Inside the machine I found a small piece of torn rubber that looks like it's from a belt. How do I open the dryer to see what's wrong? If it's a broken belt, is this easy to replace myself?

    Sounds like it could be a belt. But I would like to know if there's a front panel? Or is the washer housing is all one piece?

This could be the front drum support wheels. They are made of rubber and I just replace one that had broken up, causing the machine not to spin at all. (I replaced both while I had the machine apart as I'm sure the other one is at the end of its life too).

To get at it, I had to take the top and the back off of the machine (removing all screws) and then unhook the belt so I could pull the drum out enough to see the wheels. The wheels are bolted to the front plastic with a nut situated inside of it, so you will have to loosen that to hold the nut in place.

You'll need some torx bits of various sizes to do this job and reassembly takes some jiggling to line everything up. Took me about 2 hours all together.

BTW - if it is the belt , it is virtually the same procedure, but if your drum is rotating at all, I doubt it is the belt.

What causes the cabrio to be loud when spinning


It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

How to Prevent Washing Machines Spinning Noisily

Washing machine Spinning cycly drum wobbles noisy


It sounds like one or both of the suspension struts has either broken or come away from it's mounting. Inside the washing machine there are a couple of concrete blocks used to counter balance the motion of the drum when it is turning. The suspension struts (just like a cars) dampen the effect so that the machine does not wobble all over the place. The struts (two normally) are firmly anchored to the washing machine chassis at the bottom and the other ends are attached to the drum itself, usually on either side. Check that these struts are not damaged and that the mounting bolts etc. are not loose or missing.

Remove all the load and try to move the drum manually clockwise and anti clockwise. If you notice any friction check the motor separately and the agitator assembly separately.
It could be due to alignment shift causing a wobbly motion or a failure of the bearings.

My washer sounds like a freight train, I have been finding pieces of plastic in with the closth


I dont know whether you have secured the dryer to stop it from moving if it shakes about you need to secure it and make sure it is level(eg the floor is level or the dryer is level and all the leg screws are down and even so it doesn't wobble about.

The more the dryer wobbles about the drum inside will wobble inside the casing and it will break the things that hold the drum in place ,sound like that has already happened.but secure it in place and see what happens.

Dryer works but is really noisy if you tip it up too one side it goes quieter


Depending on whether the dryer has been leveled it could be simple or an indication your drum bearing is failing and allowing the drum to rub. Start off leveling your dryer and see if that helps. If not, try turning the drum by hand and see it you can detect a wobble in the drum rotation.

Very noisy operation


Yes....this will throw than fan unit out of balance almost the same way the tires on your car get out of balance. The wobble effect at high speed makes tons of noise.
