My Hotpoint TC71 condencer drier has sheared its rear bearing post.It had been going scrape for sometime but didn't get around to looking at it until it snapped! Can get a rear bearing kit but just wondered if you could advise with the dismantle / reassemble sequence? Thanks

    Bsically follow these steps:


    • Old Style: First, remove the several screws holding the top down and then the bottom two screws Then remove the drum center bearing clip, unstring the belt, and remove the drum.

    • New Style: Remove the top panel retaining screws, pop the top, and then remove the inner front panel screws. Unstring the belt and remove the drum. Here’s what it looks like with the drum removed. There are two variations on this dryer that affect how you restring the belt. Variation 1 has a rear access panel through which you can restring the belt. Variation 2, however, does not have this rear access panel. (Thank you, GE
      ) To restring the belt on this sorry excuse for a dryer, remove the
      phillips screw inside the rear exit opening of the blower duct and
      remove the duct. Then restring the belt from the front.
    A specific HotPont/GE service manual can be found here as well:

    Hope that helps!
    Dont forget to ACCEPT the solution if it helped you!

I have replaced the belt on my Hotpoint vdt00 dryer but the belt seems to pull the drum on to the motor causing a scraping noise and its hard to turn around. their dosnt apear to be a bearing or anything...


look inside the drum is there three screws on the very back wall of drum,there is a bearing there,remove the belt,slide the drum forward and look at the back of the drum,there should be a shaft sticking out that slides into a slot that looks like a U in the back wall,that is the rear bearing that you get in a kit if you hear a loud squeaking sound that's the problem,if you sent the model number i could of told you the part number

My hotpoint tc71 drier blows the plug fuse when switched on what is the problem please


boy the list could be very long but this dyer draws a large amount of current (amps) it should be on its own circuit nothing else on the line at least when the dryer is running you said "fuse" if it is blowing a fuse as opposed to a breaker you could try a Time Delay fuse 15 amps might help please do not put a larger fuse in (even though it fits) the wire size dictates the size of the fuse and increasing fuse size with out changing the wire size to accomodate will create a fire hazzard good luck

Hotpoint dryer squeaks at regular intervals


Slow squeaking or scraping noises are often from the rear bearing behind the square panel, the rear bearing sleeve is inside the middle of the heater housing and the shaft part is attached to the back of the drum by a "C" clip which needs to be removed first.

93 Grand Caravan right rear wheel/brake problem(s)


well i can help with problem #2

even if you tightened the wheel bearing, it is probably worn out..

what it does when it's loose is you won't hear much noise when you drive on a strait road but the minute you put some weight on it, like when you take a curve, the weight of the body is applied on the bearing resulting in a scraping noise....

and the faster you'll drive the more noise you'll get

so let's say you take a left turn you're gonna hear noise from the right wheel...

OCCASIONAL Metallic scraping noise - New ceramic brake pads.


You could be right with the wheel bearings. But first take the wheel off and check that nothing is scraping the rotor. Look all the way around the rotor. A suggestion will be that the brake pads have worn enough that the brake pad wear indicator is starting to scrape. Pry them back a little.

Hotpoint ultima condenser dryer TC71 is running cold


Thermostats rarely go. You could have a bad heater or even a voltage problem. Even if the dryer runs, the voltage can still be wrong, it only needs 110 volts to start the motor but must have 220 to have heat.

Drum wont move


Check the motor and the belt on the back of the unit behind the rear plate. Make sure that the belt is attached and the motor is spinning. If this helped please rate. Thank you

Hotpoint tumble dryer is making loud scraping noise like the drum is catching against one the panels


This sound is caused by the drum tilting towards the rear panel just above the heating element housing and is due to the drum spindle wearing through the bearing. (Which can lead to it shearing off) after it`s cut it `s way into the bearing support bracket. A new rear bearing kit is needed. it will come with a foam support which is stuck on to the inside of the back panel as the drum rests against this when turning. the foam support on your dryer may have perished or gone flat due to the heat from the element and that is why your hearing the scaping sound. new foam ring from the bearng kit will cure the scraping.

Hotpoint washer dryer leaking water whilst drying


driers work by running cold water down the back plate of the machine so the hot damp air condence's on to it. It works on the same principle as your bathroom mirror, because its colder than the air around it the moistier in the air condence's on to it. Most machines use a seperate inlet valve from the cold water to do this, they are proned to rub against the back of the drum.Take the top cover off the machine and check the hose's from the cold inlet onto the back of the machine you'll probably find a hole worn in it.
