Question about Dryers
My guess would be a loose belt or motor brushes.
A quick inspection (top and rear panels removed) would appear to show belt is OK
Looking at spares suppliers I cannot find anyone selling motor brushes
Even with back panel removed the motor is not accessible - should I 'go in' through the bottom to check the state of the brushes?
All advice appreciated
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.
