Question about Hotpoint TDL15 Electric Dryer
Hi, my dryer still heats but the drum doesn't turn. I was able to get the top off and found that, as I suspected, the belt was broken. Finding a replacement belt should not be too hard, but I'm not sure how to install it. It looks like I'll have to get the front off, and I'm worried about messing with the wiring. I don't want to cause any damage I can't fix. There don't seem to be any (free) repair instructions for this model on the web. Does anyone know where I can find some, or have any advice they can share? I'm particularly hoping for instructions with pictures, but I know this may be asking a lot. Thanks! Morgan
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
