If you have a NVL333EY which you posted under, I'd rate the repair a 4 on a scale of 1 - 10 in difficulty. That Hotpoint model is actually manufactured by Frigidaire / Electrolux and sold through GE as a Hotpoint. (Hey, it's a global economy, right?)
Disconnect power to the dryer. Use a putty knife to push in the seem of the front panel with the dryer top to release the dryer top, allowing it to swing back. You may be able to use a phillips to remove the screws holding the front panel, but a #2 square drive works much better. Slip new
134503600 belt around drum from front. Put front panel back on. Remove 4 screws (again the #2 square drive works best) holding the back access panel at lower left back side to allow you to finish belt installation. Belt grooves touch the drum. The worst part is keeping the spring from falling off when you put the belt tensioning wheel on. After you have the belt installed, give the drum a turn by hand to make sure everything is OK before you close up the top and reconnect power.

Tub stopped turning, connot turn by hand either.


Hi,
Dryers have a belt that turns the drum, I think dryer belt being broken or slipping badly, burn out motor, or worn support parts.
---Dryer have a belt that rotate the drum, If the belt worn out or broken, it can not move the drum then you just need to replace it. ---You can check motor by hearing buzzing sound, if the belt has the problem. If you do not hear any sound from the motor then you may have to replace it. ---Try to move drum manually (by hand), if it is hard to turn then problem with the idler pulley, glides, or drum rollers.
I hope this will solve you problem

Thanks..!!

Dryer screeching and grinding when running


Hi !
The drive belt has become old and hard.
Just change the drive belt and all will be well.

Please don't try to lubricate the belt as may be suggested by many as cheap quick fix.

Regards
Berry.

Is60v belt replacement. The replacement belt seems difficult to fit.size/ belt number checked against old one & details are the same. What is the method of replacing / refitting the belt?


The belts do appear to be undersize, this is because they are a stretch belt, and this makes them very difficult to fit.
Remove the top cover and right hand side panel of dryer, this will give you access to the belt.
Move the front panel forward to fit the new belt on the drum, and then you really have to pull hard down on the belt to get it round the motor pulley.
It is very difficult.
Good luck.

Hotpoint DLB 1550 clothes dryer belt replacement


I don't know of any sites with pictures but, remember just average people assemble these so it's not as hard as it seems. The electrical connectors are one way fit so you don't have to worry about mixing them up. If your worried though use tape to lable where they go. The drum rides on the front of the dryer so when you remove the front the drum will drop down. Remove the old belt and then slide the new belt back to where the old belt rode on the drum. Make sure there are no twists in the belt. Loop the belt on the motor pulley and the loop it over the tensioning wheel. Make sure the tension wheel puts plenty of tension on the belt. Have someone help you hold the drum in place while you put the front on.Before you close the top turn the drum by hand to make sure it turns smoothly. Then close it up and run it empty and listen for squeaks and scraping sounds. Good luck and if you have more questions ask. I can help you through if you need help. Please rate me so I know if I'm helping. Thanks

Asko T720 clothes dryer - thumping noise like the drum is damaged and shakes when going.


hi
The drum of the dryer is usually turned by a motor-and-belt assembly. There are two very clear signs that the belt is malfunctioning: You can easily spin the drum by hand when the dryer is off, or you hear a heavy thumping sound coming from the drum when the dryer is running. Here's how to test and replace the drum belt:

Step 1: Locate the belt by removing the back or front service panel. Depending on the type of dryer you own, you may have to prop up the drum to keep it from sagging. Don't let the drum hang; the bolts that hold it in the cabinet could be damaged. Don't remove any more parts than necessary.

Step 2: Identify the belt. The old belt may be threaded around the idler pulley and motor drive shaft. Draw a diagram showing how the pulley is installed so you'll be able to replace it properly. If the old belt is worn or frayed, but not broken, leave it around the drum as a pattern for positioning the new belt; cut the old belt and remove it when the new belt is in position.

Step 3: Remove the old belt from the pulleys and stretch the replacement belt into place. The new belt must extend around the dryer drum and the pulleys. The trick is to align the belt on the drum with the pulleys -- the ribs on the new belt go against the drum.

Step 4: Once the belt is aligned, turn the drum by hand, if possible, to make sure the belt is tracking. You may have to reassemble part of the cabinet to do this.

My hotpoint vtd20 dryer is vibrating when running. When stopped, with my hand i can barely turn the drum (not sure if it turned easily before) any advice?

Some older dryers have a V-belt pulley drum drive. With this system, two or three pulleys of different sizes set the speed of the drum. To change this type of belt, decrease the tension on the idler pulley and install the new belt in the V-grooves of all pulleys. Then place the idler pulley back into position.
With any dryer, make absolutely sure that you replace the old belt with a new one made especially for the dryer. Any difference in belts can change the speed of the drum and cause problems with other dryer components.
