SOURCE: husband just changed belt on dryer, and drum still doesnt turn

While you have the drum out check the motor to see if it runs. It could be you have a faulty motor.
If the motor is running then you may have a faulty timer or start switch
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Heating works but drum doesnt turn.

Try turning drum, or remove top from dryer to confirm if belt has gone. When turning drum there should be some resistance as the belt fits around the drum

Hey when we turn on our dryer we get a burning smell and the drum doesnt turn, any ideas? we think the engine might have burnt out?

Either something is binding the drum, or the motor has failed. Can you turn the drum by hand? If you can, then most likely the motor has failed, if you can't turn it by hand, then the drum is stuck and the motor just isn't able to turn it until you find whatever is binding the drum. You might have to remove the back panel to get in to see what might be causing the problem if it is binding.

Let me know what you find with this.

Tumble dryer drum won't turn hotpoint vtd00

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.
It comes complete with fitting instructions.
Go the Hotpoint web site, and you should be able to order the parts on line.


In the menu click on>>>>Spare parts and accessories, and follow instructions.
Please ratemy solution.

I have replaced the belt on my Hotpoint vdt00 dryer but the belt seems to pull the drum on to the motor causing a scraping noise and its hard to turn around. their dosnt apear to be a bearing or anything...

look inside the drum is there three screws on the very back wall of drum,there is a bearing there,remove the belt,slide the drum forward and look at the back of the drum,there should be a shaft sticking out that slides into a slot that looks like a U in the back wall,that is the rear bearing that you get in a kit if you hear a loud squeaking sound that's the problem,if you sent the model number i could of told you the part number
