I read through every dryer forum before I posted this, I promise. I am replacing the drum belt on my Asko T721 dryer. I got the new belt, got the machine apart, but I don't understand how to install the belt onto the motor spindle and pulley wheel mechanism. There's no tension. It should be pretty tight, right? The length of the belt is correct. I compared it to the broken one. I'm missing something about the actual installation onto the pulley. I am looking at the illustration of how it is supposed to be positioned, and it says just around the motor spindle then up around the pulley, but nothing holds it on the pulley. It's not going to rotate the drum. When I've watched other videos it looks like people adjust the spring. Other times people double the belt up so it's completely around the spindle and then up around the pulley wheel, but the Asko illustration does not show that. I'm sorry if I'm not explaining well. Any guess as to what I am doing wrong? I did all this work and I'm so proud of myself that I hate the idea of calling a technician at this point. Thank you very much for your time.
Hello. It is time once again to rebuild the dryer as we just started getting the brown staining from the glide wearing down. This will be, I believe, the 3rd time I've done this job. Maybe 4th. We've had this unit for 20 years. I've posted about this here in the past, but with the new site design I'm unable to view those past posts to get a parts list. Below is a listing of all the parts I think are necessary, or a good idea, to replace while doing this job. Drum Bearing: 5303281153 Drum Glide: 5303937139 Lower Felt: 5303283286 Belt: 137292700 Considering it is 20 years old, is it advisable to replace anything else while doing this job? The last repair lasted a long time and I now only vaguely remember the components to replace. Also, the last time I used automotive wheel bearing grease on the drum bearing. Was that a good idea? Regards, Gary
