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...
hey to get the belt on the asko dryer you need to take all the screws out of the back of the dryer back plated dont worry you can do this take the top plate off 2 then remove the cap from the optional side vent pipe if applicable lay dryer on to the front side down position lift the back plat a littlew say 5 inches reach in and take the vent plastic manifiold out by pulling it right an inch or so then pull it toward you (back ) when you get it out you can see the motor wih the belt idler pintle (axle) if your belt idler has fallen loose locate it and or remove it temporarily figger out hay the idler fits to the belt onto the motor houseing (unit) pull belt off the drum towards you remove between the space between the back plate and dryer drum to preplace instale in reverse order note 1 wire you will need to reach into the bak at top to reatrtache the plastic clip so you can screw it up to keep it from rubbing ect and good luck
Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time
Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.
Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.
Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.
I think you must replace the belt and the tensionarm. It MUST be done from the backside of the machine... Remove the backpanel, and the drum, change the tensionarm, and put the drum into the machine again. Put on the new belt, and mount it together again. Be careful for sharp edges! Hope this helps :-)
usually whin you get one thump (or a quick double thump) you have a dent in the roller surface of the drum itself. Easiest way to check this is to unplug the unit and take the top off by removing the 3 torx screws in the rear, then lifting the top off. Once the top is off look at the very front edge of the drum as you rotate the whole thing by hand. If you see any irregularities on the surface, thats your problem. If you see nothing it could be a bad motor or roller, but its unlikely if its happening in the same place on the rotation evry time. What has usually happened with dents in the surface of the drum is that the unit was set down too hard (or dropped) and the wheels it rests on dented the metal they ride on. If thats the case the only solution is to replace the drum or live with it .Good Luck!
