Replaced my zanussi tc-481w drier belt but it still won't work
The old belt was broken so I got a new one and put it round the tub, however it's not clear where exactly it goes in relation to the alternator. It's very slack and I'm wondering whether it's too long for this machine.

take back cover off ... place new belt bottom first then roll it round tub... WATCH YOUR FINGERS.....if no cover on rear undo two screws on lid (rear).....do as stated above but its harder.07779933829 uk
Here is my own solution...
Disconnect from mains (of course)
remove top (2 screws at back near top)
Unplug electric connectors (on back panel, top RHS). Make sure note what goes where!
Lie unit down on front
remove screws (2) holding the drum spindle cover (centre of back) and remove cover
pop off the circlip holding drum spindle, and washer
unscrew back panel - hex headed screws round outside of back
Remove screws at bottom of back panel which screw into the plastic vent housing (3 I think)
Lift whole back off. (there's a plastic lip at bottom - need to pull away from this a bit) The drum spindle will be unsupported now, so don't move unit
Full access now to drum and motor beneath
Get and put on new belt
Actually, having got into unit, found could not get belt from local spares shop (it had closed down), so bought new drier!
