Asko t761 dryer drum will not start rotating and belt is not broken

After taking the dryer apart and cleaning the drum will not rotate unless you help with a push. The top is off in order to push it. It works fine until the next time it needs a helping hand. Belt is good and seems to be tight.

ASko dryer T761 goes bump bump bump when starting. sometimes we can wiggle drum around and get it to stop. Help!

I believe asko says this is normal at start up and should stop after the drum has been spinning for a bit.

ASKO T760; Drum "Thumps" rapidly

I have replaced the drive belt and rollers, to replace front support rollers you need to take drum out to gain access to them. the part that takes the longest is removing rear panel, the 4 screws around the drum bearing and the screws that hold heating element to the rear panel. Then you can rotate rear panel out of the way, having a small stool or chair for it to sit on makes it a whole lot easier. With this out of the way you can remove drive bely from drum and lift it out of the way. The rubber rollers sre held in by bolts with nylon nuts on the front, be careful when taking out the bolts that you don't knock the nut out of its holder, if this happens you will need to remove the screws around the inner door opening to be able to put the left side one back in. I had the dryer laying on it door to remove the drum an belt, then placed it in the normal position to change the rollers.
Hope this helps, took about 45 minuetes, I'm not a appliance tech.

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.

Drum is not turning. Heat works

Sounds like the belt has broken or come off. This is usually inexpensive to fix. You just need to get it out in the open to replace.

Dryer Drum not rotating

If warm air is still coming from the unit, but the drum is not rotating, it sounds like your drive motor is fine, but your drive belt is broken. Depending on you dryer model, these can be fairly easy to check, or may take a little creativity to get the dryer apart. Knowing your dryer model number would go a long way towards assisting further.
