Question about Asko T701 Electric Dryer

Drier does not tumble but it still heats.

Drier still heats but the drum does not turn/tumble. This is a front loader "Asko" Tumble Drier. Does it have a drive belt or some form of direct drive?

Hi,

Sound like the belt being broken or slipping badly, burn out motor, or worn support parts.

  • Dryer have a belt that rotate the drum, If the belt worn out or broken, it can not move the drum then you just need to replace it.
  • You can check motor by hearing buzzing sound, if the belt has the problem. If you do not hear any sound from the motor then you may have to replace it.
  • Try to move drum manually (by hand), if it is hard to turn then problem with the idler pulley, glides, or drum rollers.
I hope this will solve you problem

Good luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Why is my Tumble Drier keeps beeping without stopping a few minutes into the drying program?


It sounds like the carbon brushes are probably worn down - they ride on the drum (in the top ) and determine the amount of moisture left in the clothes for drying - they connect to the drum and the metal bar inside the dryer - A wet clothing item conducts between the two giving the dryer an idea of how much moisture is left in the load - equal to how much time / heat is needed to dry load as required. These brushes wear out and need to be replaced over time
