My cabrio dryer wed7600xwo is no longer drying right, I have to run loads 3 times to get them dry. What could the problem be?


This dryer has 2 belts. A smaller belt operates the blower. The nut tends to back out and the small belt falls off. Here is the result:

Dryer will only spin with small load


You need to replace the belt that will solve all your problems.

Okay, so the small white wheel attached to the motor that actually spins the belt that turns the drum, seems to have somehow become deformed. It looks like the belt wore a grove into the wheel and it...


I recently needed to repair my washer. With limited money I sure couldn't buy a new one so I did some looking and found this site, I have included info on your dryers model number. I hope this helps, These folks were fast and my son was able to do the work without any special tools - http://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts?s=t-MDE5500AY-%3d%3d

On your model I beleive these wheels are driven with small gears inside the inside diameter of the wheels. If the shaft is turning, then you probably have a gear problem. Remove a wheel and inspect both the wheel, and the small gear. They are prone to wear.I'd suggest replacing all four parts if worn.

Noisy, wobbly Asko dryer


This could be the front drum support wheels. They are made of rubber and I just replace one that had broken up, causing the machine not to spin at all. (I replaced both while I had the machine apart as I'm sure the other one is at the end of its life too).

To get at it, I had to take the top and the back off of the machine (removing all screws) and then unhook the belt so I could pull the drum out enough to see the wheels. The wheels are bolted to the front plastic with a nut situated inside of it, so you will have to loosen that to hold the nut in place.

You'll need some torx bits of various sizes to do this job and reassembly takes some jiggling to line everything up. Took me about 2 hours all together.

BTW - if it is the belt , it is virtually the same procedure, but if your drum is rotating at all, I doubt it is the belt.

Roper Dryer won't spin.


From what I understand, it sounds like the idler "pulley" is broken. Upon receiving power to the motor, the belt inter-connects and ultimately drives and rotates the pulley and drum. The pulley is designed to guide and give "tension" to the belt when connected to enable the drum to "rotate and tumble".

The pulley is relatively simple to replace and can be purchased from your local appliance dealer for about $10 - $15. Depending on your "handy" skills, I would take the following steps to check your belt and pulley;

1. Disconnect the Dryer
2. Access the dryer cabinet/pulley by removing the front door (If your pull and clean fileter from top, remove 2 screws near filter. You may need a putty type knife to "slide and pop" the dryer open)

3. You may see the dryer belt already broken or disconnected, but take a look at the pulley and check for broken wheel, metal, chips/cracks, etc. Sometimes you may need to replace the pulley all together, but you may only need to replace the wheel part depending on the model of your dryer.

HOW DO I ?


You probably need to thread the new belt over the drum by removing the circular rubber front seal temporarily. After putting the seal back on, ease the belt into the correct position and thread over the pulley on the motor. You will probably find it easier to put it over the pulley wheel of the motor first, with the belt partially off the drum. Then rotate the drum manually whilst easing the belt over it.
