Question about Dryers
I Need to replace belt in Asko dryer model t=701. I need instruction as to how to do it.
Also, how do I rewire dryer to match the existing wall outlet.
You have to pull the back off the dryer.Then you,ll be able to see how it comes off.Ussally its on two pulleys similar to a car.There may be a tensioner on it to to keep it from slipping.If there is one you,ll have to losen it to remove the belt & replace it,then tighten the tensioner back up.Ussally you keep about a 1/4" to 1/2" free play on the belt.You use a sraight edge on the two pulleys to measure it with the belt on,tighten belt tensioner till you have the recommended tighteness.

Hello paulehni, welcome to Fixya.
First things first, have you checked the 15amp fuses which are located at the back of your Asko dryer ?
**Turn off your breaker at the home service panel, it should be a 30amp switch**
That is where I`d start and focus your attention. They are at the back as I said 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, amresupply.com, reliableparts.ca etc. 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.
