I have an Asko T701 dryer that is heating and drying fine, but running so loudly that I have to close the laundry room door to hear myself think in the kitchen. Also, it seems that I'm getting very little lint in the lint trap. I'm not sure if these symptoms are related, however they seem to have started around the same time. Thanks.

The exact type of noise can help identify what the problem might be: a squealy noise, thump-thump, etc. Best thing would be if we could listen to a video and then we could let you know what the cause probably is. If you can shoot a video with your camera and upload it to Youtube, that would be helpful. Otherwise, the only thing I can tell you is that you'll need to open it up and look for the bad actors.

Ok, I made a video of the dryer running with my husband trying to locate the source of the noise. . .

Hopefully the link works and helps describe my issue. Thanks!

If it's like the 7005, there is a system of hard plastic ducting to vent the air from the drum through the fan and out the vent. The sections are friction fit...I wonder if they've pulled apart for some reason and are vibrating against the metal casing. Is any air coming out the vent?

Great video! Have you eyeball-confirmed that the drum is tumbling? Has that reminiscent sound of a motor spinning with a broken belt. Anyway, you're gonna need to open this puppy up and get some eyeballs on the guts-- the problem will no doubt be apparent. This manual will help you-- it's a Freaky Festivus present.

Yes, the drum is tumbling and is still drying clothes fine. Thanks for the manual. I guess we'll have to open 'er up and see what's up.
