Crusader Dryer 37661 - Replacing the Drive Belt
1. Remove the top lid (held on two screws at the back of the machine) and see if there is a black line round the drum where the drive belt should be.2. Remove the panel below the front door and fish out the old broken belt lying inside the base of the machine3. Take all the screws out of the back of the machine, starting with the centre panel which is just a cover and does not hold anything up inside. It conceals two screws at the bottom which must be removed along with the rest to loosen the back of the machine. 4. Pull the loosened back of the machine backwards to extract the drum from its seating inside the front door. It just needs to be pulled out sufficiently for the new drive belt to be pushed down so that it encircles the drum. The back can then be pushed in again and all the screws holding on the back of the machine can be re-inserted.5. Working through the slot below the front door, If you have very thin arms then you may be able to pull the belt down between the two tensioning pulleys and slip it over the motor drive shaft. Otherwise, remove the screws at the bottom of the machine securing the front panel and pull it out a bit to make a wider access. You will see an annoying electric wire running from the right hand side at the back over to the left of the front panel which stops you from being able to move the whole front panel out a bit further. This can be released by cutting the plastic cable-tie which holds it down to the floor at the back. The cable-tie does not need to be replaced.6. Ensure that the belt runs exactly on the same line as the old belt did at the top of the drum. It can be fixed there with a piece of masking tape if necessary. This is essential to give sufficient slack for the belt to be slipped over the drive shaft of the motor below the drum.7. Pull the drive belt underneath the drum down between the tensioning pulleys and slip it over the drive shaft. This is a bit of a fiddle but does not require any tools.8. Replace the bottom panel and the lid (after removing the masking tape).
It took about half an hour.Richard Turner

Hi before you consider renewing? this fault is drum failing to rotate?? so it may be either the belt has come off? or broken ? or the motor is not working ? in which case? if machine is a few yrs old? it may be simply the motor brushes have worne low ? so will not create power to armature of motor both of these possibilities you can diy investigate and with a little common patience suss how to rectify belt fault and if necessary renew the motor brushes ! in uk brushes approx cost £5 or £ 6 for the pair ? much cheaper than a new machine ? so why not unplug machine and get posidrive to work removing rear panel for a deco? hope this helps and inspires you ?

Bosch condensation dryer when on heated dry clothes come out steaming hot not dry

Sounds like something's blocking the hot damp air being removed from the drier. If you are confident enough, go through the drier vent system looking for a blockage. If not get a good DIY neighbour or appliance engineer. Silly question, is the drum turning?

I want to know that on my washing machine lg-80BKF21P model the time(min) 10 minutes was remaining and the washing process is done,it ends but after drying all is done but 10 minutes were remaining and...

tumble driers and combination washer driers have a 10 minute safety margin, where the heat fior drying is dispersed, to avoid people grabbing very hot clothing.. especially if it is not quite dry as this would make them, hotter to the touch.
Tumble driers usually continue to tumble, but blow cool air through the clothes to get rid of the heat, before stopping.

The tumble inside stoped turning.

You have a broken belt on your drier. Take the back of your drier off and youll see the problem.

Good Luck
