we have an asko 7005 dryer. when we turn it on it sounds great but the jokes on us--the heat is coming out but the barrell does not spin.

i pushed the magic black rubber button on the back but that does nothing.

any ideas?

If air moves around and it sounds normal... but no tumble... quite obviusly the belt is off or broken.

Belt can be ordered here:

http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=722131

but before ordering, tear down and check if there is a reason the belt dropped or broke: Worn drum felt glides, rollers, etc... drum or idler pulley stuck...

Sorry to say I haven't got breakdown information readily at hand. Other people who have similar dryers can have posted crucial information; if you figure yours out, please post.

Oh, if the belt is just off but not broken, check it carefully for abrasions, cuts, etc... and if in the least doubt of its integrity, order a new one to be sure, and make sure to observe carefully for the reason it fell off.

and to tearing it down it there a trick to opening the machine? i assume i go thru the back (clearly i am a novice but i learn quickly).

is there somewhere to see how to open this up?

thanks.

Like I wrote, I have no exact information for teardown, but the general methods apply. Also it doesn't necessarily hurt to study the procedures for the other dryers:

http://fixitnow.com/2003/11/appliance-tip-of-day-dryer-disassembly.htm

Examine carefully what is screwed "on" or "under" another piece, primarily try to remove an "on" screwed piece first. It may be one of the side panels, or the back panel, etc. Often it is the top that must be detached first, and after looking under, the mounting sequence of everything else is quite obvious.

Have at least one styrofoam block or corrugated cardboard piece where you stick every removed screw, put them in clusters respectively to the parts that they held on.

You may need to remove screw head covers to get to crucial screws on the exterior. Have a flashlight ready, careully pry some clearing to look in, and try to look what comes off along with the part you're trying to remove.

Take photos, draw sketches, jot down notes, anything that helps you remember how stuff was assembled. If possible, post them here, it will probably help other people with the same problem in the future. Take the time you need to.

And, if after reading this you don't feel up to the challenge, it is a good time to call in a repair person.

this is a great help and very infomational!!!!

so what's the number for the repair guy again?

;)

actually, i can at least find that!! BUT, using a piece of a corrugated cardboard or styrofoam is a great idea for other stuff so i definitely got something from you. thanks!

btw, i have read good things and not so good things about asko. i must say that we are on the not so good side with them. everything we've bought ends up breaking more than once. when we replace it will not be with another asko product.

Asko may have its problems with reliability, but shouldn't be the worst thing to work with. If you decide to replace, currently it seems that Whirlpool might be the best choice over there.

Put your hand in the drum and give it a lift, if you feel more than 1/2 inch easy motion, possibly worn felts, and can be worn rollers too. If it turns lightly wihout much noise, no clunking etc, it is possible that you don't need many parts to rectify the situation.
If it's just the belt fallen off, but not broken, and the drum isn't stuck, you may be lucky with replacing the idler... if it develops a lot of axial or radial play it can tilt or shimmy on its shaft and force the belt off.

Once you get it opened up, have a good look at stuff. Everything should be linearly aligned, imagine that everything spins around horizontal axles running from front to back, if something is skewed diagonally compared to related parts, it is likely to be problematic.

Open the front panel and see if the belt is still intact. If not, then you'll need to replace it from the back. See the attached diagram for help with that.

I don't think the diagram is very good, but that's Asko-oh NO! fer ya.

Woulda posted this sooner but I was being held hostage by Afghani mujahideen. They finally let me go after I kicked their asses as a Dwarf Cleric in a game of D and D. Pussies!
