Samsung dryer hums but the drum does not turn

It sounds to me like the drive belt that goes around your dryer tub has broken.

Can't work out how to fit new belt to my tumble dryer it's a hotpoint aqurius dryer duluxe TL22.

You need to remove the rear panel the top console panel,,and then remove the whole cabinet to gain access to the drum and belt.
Then you need to release the front panel at the top to enable you to fit the belt.
Hope this helps.

Whirlpool gas dryer won't spin and there is a deep humming sound with an electrical odor

Sounds like the drive belt has broken and is rubbing against the motor pulley, which causes the smell.
You can order a new one online, or from Sears. Replacement is a matter of gaining access to the inside of the dryer, remove the old belt, and figuring out how to get the new belt around the drum and motor pulley.

My creda tcr2 condenser dryer is not turning with a load but does turn without a load or will turn with a little push can you help

It is going to be 1 of 2 possibilities.
1--A faulty start capacitor.
2--A slack or drive belt.
More likely to be the capacitor, located at bottom rear right of dryer looking from front.
It entails removal of top cover and right hand side panel to gain access
Please rate my solution.

The dryer still works properly but squeals terribly after about 10mins use,I have gained access to the top of the drum and the drive belt doesn't appear to be slipping so could it be a bearing??

Check the small plastic sheets in the front of the drum. If they are worn down, that's your problem but there are two wheel bearings on the bottom of the dryer drum, depending on your model. Hope this helps, Good Luck...

Replace bearing and bushing g.e. profile dryer

Yes, but you will have to swing the top open, remove the dryer front, and pull the drum forward about 4 inches (leaving belt on drum) to gain access to the bushing. Normally that is all you have to replace, but also check for wear on the front drum slides at the same time.

Drive belt replacement on a Miele T230C tumble dryer

You must route the belt either in front of or slip it behind the drum to get it down to the drive wheel. You should remove the front panel to be able to do this the best.
