I'm not familiar with the ASKO dryer and I need to replace the front drum wheels and the belt. 

 

1. Do I need a special tool to remove the drum from the back?

 

2. Do I remove the front only to replace the belt and wheels?

 

Thanks,

I'm starting to freak out, is this dryer something I should stay away from if I haven't worked on one before?

Have you got the service manual for this unit???.........A dryer is a dryer, it heats and it tumbles............The service manual I have is the T-700 series...........I  replaced the belt on a T-700.....( Non-Condensing )..................Start at the back and work your way in..........Keep the screws grouped by steps of dissassembly,   helps on reassembly................If I remember , when removing the rear panels, you can keep them together and remove them as a set ......................Do not grease/ oil  the roller shafts........................................

I have the service manual but at one point it talked about a special tool with a specific part number to remove the drum, but I think that is for some other model that I'm not dealing with.

 

Just curious as to  why not to oil the roller shafts?

Disclaimer... :deal: ..........No p/n for this manual......If I list  a page as reference and it doesn't match yours, bummer.......................Page 31, Changing  belt....Set #3..." Special Tool"................................Page 22...Special tool.... P/N 8801154....Never had one, did not need one....It looked like something that would be in the way.....................Use sticky notes as flags on the steps required...............Helps to find your page after it slips off the cylinder and drops inside. :rolleyes:  .....................P.S.   You do not oil/ grease  the rollers cuz it collects dust, hair, causes binding...........Will cause a problem later......" Maybe not today.     Maybe not tomorrow.  But soon and for the rest of your dryers life.".......

Mission accomplished.  3.5 Hours from tip to tail.  I replaced the front wheels and belt. I'm hoping next time I can do it in 3.25 Hours.

 

thanks again for the help.

 

If someone can tell me how to attach .PDF files I can attach the cheat sheet that someone from ASKO emailed me, it was very helpful...
