Our Asko dryer (T720) has begun to make a heavy thumping noise, even if empty. (Sounds like a single wet & heavy object is in dryer)

Usually the drum rollers wear on that model making a thumping noise. The asko is a tough machine to work on. You may need a technician to service it.

When operating dryer makes LOUD thumping noise. Is this fixable?


this sounds like rotator wheel(s) are broken. It is some what an easy fix. The drum dyer needs to rotate those wheels. Usually you need two.

My dryer makes a thump thump sound


  1. Thoroughly check the inside of the dryer for any foreign objects with hard surfaces. Sometimes items that fall out of pockets become stuck inside a dryer and make thumping noises.
  2. Check for level
  3. Make sure the dryer is level. A dryer that is out of level may not rotate properly. Banging or thumping noises from unleveled dryers are common, particularly if the dryer is resting against another metal object such as a washer.
  4. Check rollers
  5. If the thumping noises are present only for the first few minutes of the drying cycle the likely culprit is rollers. If the rollers are warped they will need to be replaced and a professional should be called in to help

SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE DRYING SHOES IN THE DRYER. EVEN WHEN THE DRYER IS EMPTY!


Bad rollers

These rollers get a flat spot on them and make a thump type noise with every revolution. More HERE

Asko T780 Dryer Vibrating/Grinding noise


Sounds like a bad roller. You'll have to remove the drum to get at them. Even a free one may make noise at speed. Use high temp grease. Also check roundness. And don't forget the belt tensioner roller, just don't get any grease where the belt touches.

Asko T720 clothes dryer - thumping noise like the drum is damaged and shakes when going.


hi
The drum of the dryer is usually turned by a motor-and-belt assembly. There are two very clear signs that the belt is malfunctioning: You can easily spin the drum by hand when the dryer is off, or you hear a heavy thumping sound coming from the drum when the dryer is running. Here's how to test and replace the drum belt:

Step 1: Locate the belt by removing the back or front service panel. Depending on the type of dryer you own, you may have to prop up the drum to keep it from sagging. Don't let the drum hang; the bolts that hold it in the cabinet could be damaged. Don't remove any more parts than necessary.

Step 2: Identify the belt. The old belt may be threaded around the idler pulley and motor drive shaft. Draw a diagram showing how the pulley is installed so you'll be able to replace it properly. If the old belt is worn or frayed, but not broken, leave it around the drum as a pattern for positioning the new belt; cut the old belt and remove it when the new belt is in position.

Step 3: Remove the old belt from the pulleys and stretch the replacement belt into place. The new belt must extend around the dryer drum and the pulleys. The trick is to align the belt on the drum with the pulleys -- the ribs on the new belt go against the drum.

Step 4: Once the belt is aligned, turn the drum by hand, if possible, to make sure the belt is tracking. You may have to reassemble part of the cabinet to do this.
