Dryers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
I have a Kenmoore HE5 Elite dryer that won't start. Model number is 110.87701700.
The L2 error code indicates low voltage to the dryer. And this is most commonly caused by a poorly wired 240V wall outlet or loose connections to the dryer. Ideally, If you are inclined to test the voltage, you should do it at the dryer where the wires are attached in the back. BE CAREFUL; YOU ARE DEALING WITH 240VAC. YOU CAN BE KILLED IF YOU TOUCH THE LIVE WIRES! With the leads of the voltmeter across the outside wires, you should measure 220 - 240 VAC. If you do, then have someone press the start button. If the voltage drops significantly, (drops to less than 200VAC), you've found the problem! Turn off the circuit breaker to the dryer (and make sure you don't have any voltage at the outlet anymore.) Now check to make sure the screws that hold the wires at the back of the dryer are tight. If they are okay, then your problem is either at the 240V wall outlet or at the circuit breaker box. I'll let you take it from there; just make sure there is no power at the outlet before you remove the cover screws.

How to replace the drum belt on Asko dryer model 793
I don't know but dryers generally are of a fairly crude construction designed to be cheaply assembled by the manufacturer and not so easy to repair.
The ones I have tackled, the belt replacement entailed removing screws until something important fell off and then on and on until the back of the cabinet could be separated from the front far enough to change the belt...

The dryer does get hot but takes a very long time
It sound like you have a venting problem. The air from the dryer is probably restricted by either a clogged exhaust hose or duct work in house or a stuck vent flap where air blows to the outside. If your vent goes straight up to the roof, something may be blocking the exit or the whole line may be clogged. Also check for a kinked flex hose that attaches to the dryer. If blockage is in wall of house, there are vent cleaning companies that can clean out the line.
