assuming what you say you checked is correct and working then the next place to look is the start relay, located behind the front timer control panel, this sis more often than not a cubed shape box made of clear plastic with about 6 spade connectors on it, look for burn marks inside it, replace if looks damaged, do not attempt to bypass or short out to test, as you will blow the timer or and control circuit board and cause extensive damage

SOURCE: creda tumble dryer repair

with great difficulty - these belts are so tight!there is a special tool for doing it but there are other ways
one way i have used is to make a spanish windlass from belt to bottom of machine. when belt is level with motor spindle, push belt on and release spanish windlass. could also try levering belt on with a screwdriver
another method is to get a short piece of tubing that will fit over motor spindle. put belt over tube, lever down and slip belt on. this is the best way

SOURCE: Not heating up

Hi

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Power from the house -- Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element -- Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse -- On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring -- A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Creda T622CW condenser tumble dryer drum wont turn


You need to check if the belt is o/k.
Remove top cover, and grasp belt, it should be firmly wrapped around drum.
If o/k, then could be a motor problem, or programmer fault
Once you have got the drum turning again, it is possible the filter light will go off,if not, then you have another fault
Hope this helps.
