    Thanks - done this and the belt is still tight?



    Does that mean it is probably the motor ?



    At £150 to buy it looks like a replacement might be better than a repair?

    Hi.

    Re dryer problem.

    Could be a faulty start capacitor, this is located at the rear right hand side of the m/c inside.

    It will entail removing top cover and side panel. It is a round cylinder about 4" long by the side of the motor with wires attached to it.

    Hope this helps.

Remove the top cover and check to see if the belt is o/k, or could be collapsed rear bearing, remove the rear cover and check the drum bearing.
