Sounds like the drive belt has gone,and the noise you can hear is the motor going round.
The red glow you can see, will be the heater element glowing..
To check the belt, remove top cover, and you will be able to see if the belt is on or not, if you can see it round the drum, try to lift it up, if it has not broken,then you will not be able to remove it, and that means the motor or drum could be siezed, try to turn the drum by hand, it should be fairly stiff to turn, but not that stiff that you cannot turn it at all.

Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

My hotpoint aquarius tumble drier is making a very lound griding sound as it turns. What can it be and can it be repaired by myself? the drier is over 8years old is it time for a new one?


This is the plastic "wheel" on the motor that drags the drive belt to spin the dryer. you will need to push back into place with something thin. under the right hand side of the dryer there will be a grill under the motor. look for a black plastic "wheel" and move it away from the casing with something that can fit through the grill.

My hotpoint ctd00 wont heat up


I would suggest that you check the heater and thermostats, these are located behind a removeable cover at the rear of the dryer.
You will need a meter to test them with, you are checking for continuity

My dryer not heatin up and dryin clothes hotpoint aquarius CTD00


Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning open circuit)
4 Modern tumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuit boards) these have programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an error code showing you were the fault is.
5 Faulty connections and burned wires may also be the fault.

Hotpoint tumble dryer CTD00 timer


It is not a difficult job...the thing to keep you out of trouble is to make sure you get the right timer switch, then remove one wire at a time.
Remove one wire from the old timer and put it on the new timer, there is not that many wires for your timer.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps
