Asko dryer repair -- When to give up?
Posted 02 June 2005 - 08:56 AM
The Dryer compels me to write today. The motor is shot. (As well as a felt band and some little clips that attach it). The motor is the big ticket item though. To get all those parts sent to us would probably run $350 or more. Especially after reading the disparaging comments on Askos, it makes wonder if the best course wouldn't be to just go out and get a new dryer.
One complicating factor if I choose to go out and get a new dryer -- The only way to plug the washer in is by going through the dryer. We'd need to have additional electrical work done to plug it directly into the wall. (I'm assuming here, but I could be wrong, that if we did go out and get a new dryer, we wouldn't be able to route the washer through it.)
So what say you: Repair or replace?
I kneel before you and await your wisdom and guidance.

You have given me much-needed advice. Do your recommendations hold true for the Whirpool Gold series? The specs look good for the Resource saver, super capacity machine with optional TV/VCR and microwave oven. (Model # GEW9878PW) Yet, unnamed grasshoppers at epinions have wove tales of melted clothing and dread. Are their experiences typical? I wish not to walk that path.
