Asko T702C Service Manual

That is a pretty easy fix without the manual. Take off the top by removing screws on the back top. Remove the sheet metal screws around the perimeter of the the back panel. Pull the drum off the front enough to drop the belt in front of the drum. Put the back panel back on. Now you can thread the belt back into place. The belt runs with the ridges on the spindle of the motor and on the smooth side on the tensioner.
You should replace the pulley idler when replacing the belt, also. I learned this the hard way and snapped a 5 month old belt.

Asko T721 dryer. Support rollers started to fall to bits (dryer making bumping sound as it rotated) so I bought a new set and replaced them. Not a single electrical connection was removed bar the door...

  • If you took the drum out and took the belt off you may have put the belt on wrong as there is a switch under the drive or idler pulley that must be pushed on from the pressure of the belt on the pulley. Also go and make sure both breakers are ok in the breaker box as it runs on a 220 volt sys. and if one is tripped this type of thing can occur.
  • Good luck and please rate me if this helped! thanks again for choosing fixya

The drying turns on, but does not spin


Welcome to FixYa.

Sounds like it has a broken belt based on your description of your Asko dryer "The drying turns on, but does not spin".

You can visually inspect it be either removing the lower access panel or the dryer top panel, the choice is yours and either way will let you check the belt.

To go infrom the top remove the screws at the back of the top, they will be three #25 torx head screws.
Once the screws are out, slide the top towards the back slightly and lift up. You should then see something like this...

Asko T700 loose belt, access from front?

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 :-)
