You need to replace the rear drum bearing, and also the plastic bearing pads at the front of the dryer, where the drum goes round against the front panel.
There is a repair kit that contains all the parts you need to carry out this repair, with instructions on what to do.
P
It does involve stripping the dryer down to complete these repairs.

How do I replace the belt on my hotpoint futura tumble dryer?


I can't answer your question exactly but in my experience tumble drier belts are not particularly complicated to replace but the process is fairly time-consuming and involved as in order to slip the new belt over the drum an almost complete strip-down of the cabinet is needed.

It is a route-march of removing screws and plastic trim until something important falls off. The task then becomes rather more a thorough interior clean and a changing of felt bearings than merely replacing the belt. The belts last so long that by the time they need replacing the other things are also ready for attention.

My Hotpoint tl61p tumble dryer made a loud bang, and now will not work, the timer justs buzz's? can anyone help please?


The load bang you heard was the idler pulley slamming into the frame more than likely. this is because your belt broke removing the tension suddenly. Put a new belt on and you'll be fine.

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.

My hotpoint cdt00 tumble dryer makes a loud banging noise on each rotation what is causing this


It is probably a worn rear drum bearing, remove cover of drum shaft, and examine the drum shaft for wear.

Hotpoint tumble dryer making a banging noise, is


This could be a simple fix or more of a major task, so if you think you can have a go then great, first find tools and torch, empty any clothes, unplug from the power supply,disconnect vent if any, place unit on a table or bench then remove the back check for large quantities of fluff and dust, clean as much as possible, see if drive belt is secure and not damaged if this is not the case then the drum bearings may be worn, try to move the drum up and down, try the same thing from inside the door, as these dryers tend to wear front bearings quicker than rear ones, if excessive wear and you are confident, remove the drive belt and tensioner take note of the layout, remove supporting bracket at rear of drum taking careful note of where any nuts bolts are from, withdraw the drum you should now have access to all the bearings which are usually like a special plastic runners or ring, contact local supplier stating make and model number ask for a bearing kit, replace bearings and rebuild machine, all this could take up a few hours to a few days so ensure you can manage without a working dryer.............good luck

Noisy Zanussi TD260 Tumble Dryer


If the motor is ok the next thing I would check is the felt strip which is on the rear of the drum and is usually glued down. When this gets worn the noise can be really intolerable. You can buy new felt but the drum has to be removed in order to replace it. Not a fun job!

My dryer dries but it shrieks. Do I need to buy a new one? Is it worth it to have it fixed? Thanks!


usually this is a sign the felt bearings on the drum, or the roller bearings under the drum are worn and need replacing
felts and rollers should be visible once you open the case
check the rollers turn freely, check the felts are not worn through and metal showing
replace both rollers or both felts if one is worn
roolers are bout $9 /pair
felts can be anything the manufacturer thinks they are worth
