Tumble dryers do not normally have brushes in the motor.
I would look elsewhere for the problem.

How install a drive belt on GE Dryer DBVH512EFWW.


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Phillips screwdriver
  1. Unplug the dryer and open the dryer door.

  2. Unscrew the screws under the top lip, where the dryer's door closes, with your screwdriver. Once these screws are removed, lift the top off of the dryer. On older models, the entire top will hinge upward out of the way, and on models made after 1997, half the top will pull off.

  3. Remove the screws on the inside-top corners of the front panel so the front panel of the dryer can be removed and set aside. On models made before 1997, the front panel should be carefully set to the right side; on newer models, the panel should be set to the left side of the machine. Be careful not to damage the door-control wires.

  4. Locate two screws approximately 6 inches off the floor on each side and remove them, allowing you to push the sides of the dryer slightly apart so the drum can be removed. Pull the drum slightly toward you and reach around to remove the dryer belt from the motor pulley. If the belt is broken, this step should not be necessary. Once the belt has been removed from the motor pulley, the drum should pull up slightly and out of the dryer toward you.

  5. Remove the old dryer belt and put the new one in place, with the ribs of the belt facing the drum. The slack part of the belt should be placed near the motor. Reverse the previous directions to replace the drum, replace the screws that hold the sides in place, replace the front and replace the top.

  6. Pull the dryer out from the wall and remove the four screws holding in the panel near the bottom of the back of the dryer. You will see the motor, the drum and the belt you just set in place. Loop the belt around the motor pulley and the idler pulley, and turn the drum by hand to make sure that the belt is straight and will stay in place. Screw the panel back on and push the dryer back into place against the wall.

Creda T520VW is very noisy when drum is turning and then it keeps tripping the fusebox. What can be causing this?


this sounds more like two faults,, a motor fault and a bearing fault
if the bearings on the dryer drum have worn out and the drum is draging the sides of the dryer the poor old motor is working its hart out trying to turn the drum this is putting a lot of load on the motor and the motor is pulling a lot more amps to do the work,, this trips the trip in the fusebox good job too or the motor would catch fire! ,,,yes i did say "catch fire!!!" to test the drum bearings,
open the dryer door and see if you can lift the drum up if you can the bearings have worn out,,there should only be a small amount of lift in the drum
as for the motor,,,its had it now? its been cooked!

Creda T622CW condenser tumble dryer drum wont turn


You need to check if the belt is o/k.
Remove top cover, and grasp belt, it should be firmly wrapped around drum.
If o/k, then could be a motor problem, or programmer fault
Once you have got the drum turning again, it is possible the filter light will go off,if not, then you have another fault
Hope this helps.

Drum not turning


no brushes in those motors you need new one or different dryer

Drum often need manual turn before it starts to turn


Tumble dryers dont have brush motors they are started by a capacator which will be on or around the motor.
It is about the size of a pepper pot with wiring to it.
These are cheap to buy and if the drum turns after you give it a push then this is the culprit.
Hope this helps & thankyou for using Fixya.

Crusader compact reversing tumble drier


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 ?
