Remove the top cover and spray the affected botton with WD 40. it may be just sticking.
Make sure it is free and not catching on anything.
It will not hurt the dryer by taping it up,nor will it catch fire,
If it is still sticking, then it is a fairly simple job to replace.
Plz rate my suggestion for solution.
Thanks, and plz feel free to leave any comment.

You are referring to the rear drum bearing that has worn away..
It means replacing the rear bearing and drum shaft.
It comes in a repair kit which you can obtain from Hotpoint.

Dryer wont heat up on a aquarius VTD00, do you think its the element


A tumble dryer that isn't heating up at all needs checking with a continuity test meter. The most common cause is a heating element failure, or t.o.c's going open circuit. . Some tumble dryers have heating elements that are easily accessible by removing the back panel, and can be tested for continuity or checked for obvious breakage. Others though have their heating elements inside, which aren't accessible without stripping the dryer down. Tumble dryer heating elements are always protected by thermal fuses which are usually simple devices with 2 wires connected. They can be tested for continuity with a test meter. Also overloading and blocked filters can lead to thermo cut out, it is best to check your manual and call someone out on this occasion. You may even have a red reset button on the rear of your machine some models do, if yours doesnt then call out engineer :)
