Noisy tires

Hi I'm Peter, most of the time when you have high noise from your tires it is related to the tread design. The more aggressive the tread the noisier it will be so if you have all terrain or mud/snow tires they will be a lot louder than a highway tread. Talk to your favorite tire dealer and tell them you want a really quite tread. Unless you are doing some serious off roading a quite highway tread is fine. I can take my 2 wheel drive pickup a lot of places some people are scared to take their 4 wheel drives. Smooth and quite is the way to go. Nice car !

Hi my hotpoint dryer wont turn please help

You have the belt on wrong. There is a side with numbers or writing on it and ribbed side like treads. The tread side should be facing down, making contact with the drum. If the other side is touching the drum then whenever clothes are put in the belt will slip causing the drum not to turn.
