Question about Hotpoint Dryers
Just bought a dryer from currys. plugged it in, set it all up like it said in the manual but the drum wont move at all. Have i got to remove any bolts or screws so the drum will move, as it doesnt say anything in the booklet.
You should take off the bottom panel on the front of the dryer. there is usually 2 screws on the bottom. from there, you will be able to see if the belt is on and if you move the drum with your hand as you look inside, you will see if the belt is moving like it should

Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet before servicing the Westinghouse dryer.
Insert the putty knife into the gap above the front panel and below the top panel. Lift the putty knife handle up to unfasten the internal locking clips.
Lift the top panel from the dryer cabinet. Rest the panel on the wall behind the dryer.
Remove the two screws on the top border of the front panel. Lift the front panel straight up to unhook it from the dryer cabinet. Unplug the connector leading into the front panel. Set the front panel aside.
Move the idler pulley arm toward the front of the dryer cabinet to loosen the belt. Remove the belt from the drum and pulleys.
Lift the drum out of the dryer cabinet.
Disconnect the electrical plugs leading into the heating element. Unfasten the screws securing the element to the inside of the cabinet. Lift the element out of the cabinet.
Place the new heating element inside the dryer. Connect the screws holding the element to the cabinet. Plug the electrical connectors into the element.
Reposition the front panel. Plug the door switch connector into its socket on the front panel. Press the panel straight down into the base. Reinstall the screws along the top of the panel.
Lower the top panel onto the dryer. Press down on the panel to lock it into place
