well since WE have not been here for years. Then moved here. Little Asko just sat on top of its washer. Got the Asko units stacked.... The dryer prob used less than a dozen times. Plus Im "green" sort of. Dry our clothes via solar dryer or just hanging on racks in laundry room or big room overnight. its just us two. Remember Im not Martha Stewart.
well anyway the two OEM SUPPORT ROLLERS (309) in diagram are prob. are< dang gone it ,..."Bakelite" ,,,dryer support rollers. They just dried up and cracked and fell off the bearings.. BOTH ROLLERS did. The new roller are white and look Nylon...
so Hubby put those on (new rollers)and its still making Grating Squeal. Like putting fingers on chalk board.
He working on it again today... He got it all back together sev days ago. Asko designers should been shamed for using inferior parts. Thats a nice way of putting it.
Why do all appliances go bad same time. ? the washer underneath its on blink too.
How can motor go bad nearly been used.? thanks y'all and you guys... Hope its okay to use "grab"from Safari browser and upload cause I don't think y'all will take time to follow an UrL right?

I hesitate to read or respond to your posts because they give me a headache but I will say that bearings are very universal. Its almost certain that you can find a replacement bearing for just about any motor if you know what you are looking for; dimensions, materials, etc.

I get all my parts from appliancerepair.homedepot.com or one of the several similar appliance parts sites out there. One of them has always had what I need, so far!

It's convenient because you can search by the model number of the appliance rather than needing to know dimensions and specifications for every part.

I buy my vehicle parts the same way (cheapcycleparts.com and rockauto.com).

one way to find out it lube all the moving parts. If it stops or get quieter you found your problem.. Motors do not like to sit for long periods of time with no use
