Hi,
The most common problem is with the belt drive.
Try this test. - Open the door, rotate drum by hand - is it free to rotate without any noise of driving the motor around? - If it is - order a new belt for it.
If you can hear the motor turning, try running the machine again. If movement is erratic - you need replacement motor brushes.
If you think the motor is dead, it may be - or there may be a fault on the control board. Both need testing to see. Usually one will need replacement.

Hotpoint TDC62p is making a buzzing/humming sound and the drum will not spin though it does move if you push it.


Either something is binding the blower wheel up or the motor is bad. The best thing is to take the front of the machine off to access the blower wheel to verify ifanything is indeed binding it.IF not read the next section.
If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

Drum will not move


Try to remove drum belt, and then turn drum by hand, if it does not turn , then you have either siezed drum bearigs, or some thing jammed between the inner and outer drum
If drum turns freely, then check motor to see if it is free to turn.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Where do i Find the heating element on my wd640 washer dryer


on top of the drum there is a metal dryer box. the heating element is connected by 2 wires.
it maybe that a build up of lint has tripped your thermal wire out or the thermistor,(you will have to test the continuity).

Aquarius 1200 wd62 - Dryer not working


Most likely it is some sort of blockage in the vent, although it could be a bad blower. Check the lint filter and vent openings for a blockage.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 - Grinding Noise From Drum


This sounds like the min bearings have gone, open the door and see if there is any play up and down on the drum. if so its the bearing if not it could be something that has fallen from a pocket and got stuck between the metal clothes drum and the oute drum casing. a take apart job i am afraid for both issues.
