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.

Welcome to Fixya.
**Turn off your breaker at the home service panel, it should be a 30amp switch or unplug it from the wall...safety first**
The fuses are at the back located next to where the power cord exit`s the unit. Look for 2 small round slotted caps ( these are the fuse holders/hubs ) either black or gray in color.
With a flat screwdriver fitted in the slot of the fuse hub, turn it a half turn counter clockwise an it should drop out...though it may need to be pulled out if it`s stuck in the holder part.
Replace with a 15amp "slow blow" ( the only difference is the slow blow are filled with sand and aren`t transparent glass tubes but rather gray or white in color ) if the fuse is blown.
You can find these fuses at most brick & mortar appliance part stores or on-line parts vendors such as repairclinic.com, reliableparts.ca etc.
Asko part number is #8058140 and you should replace both. The number may substitue to an in-store number, it really depends on the vendor, just provide your model number and you should have no trouble.
Hope that is helpful. If so please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know what you find or if you require further assitance.
Thank`s for visiting Fixya today and good luck.
