    I'm in the process of re-assembling mine at the moment. It was taken apart by a friend in my absence and he cannot remember how to re-wire the heating element! I've connected the two pole connector with black wires to the two red wires & the three pole orange/grey/green wires to the blue/black/white wires, but would like confirmation before I power up...!
    Any advise?

Just changed the belt on a Beko DRCS68W and its a real pig! Remove the top panel and loosen all screws on complete back panel having removed circlip holding the drum spline on to the back panel. You will also need to disconnect wires/leads on top right inside panel to give you more space. Once you have done this you should be able to ease away the back panel far enough to get the new belt around the drum and over the drum spline in the middle. Then the tricky bit - getting the belt tensioned on to the motor drive spline. I did this before securing the drum and back panel, which gives a bit more flexibility. I also used about 15ins of 15mm copper pipe to ease the belt down over the motor spline. Hard part was getting the back panel back lined up with the screw holes as the belt tension distorts the casing. Finally hit on the idea of lying the machine on its side so the weight of the drum is pulling away from the motor and helping to line up the screw holes. Two and a half hours later job done! I guess if I ever did another it would be a whole lot easier but still not the type of job I relish!

    I just did this job on my Beko DRVS62W.

    Remember to unplug the power before you open the case!! Also, when unplugged turn machine on at the front - might help to unload the capacitor?

    I found as Gringosmith did that the new belt seemed too short. I ended up putting the back on the machine with the belt loose and then put some bolts on the back of the machine and replaced the centre circlip. Then I removed the panel down by the motor (where the hot air comes out) - you can see the motor from this panel and used a 8 inch screwdriver levered against the motor housing to stretch the belt and slip it onto the motor. Careful not to tear the belt when putting it onto the motor!

    thanks for the tips guys will have a go when i get the belt will try my local shop before i order on net as the snow will delay any order i guess

  • jimmyhw1966 Jan 03, 2011

    ok just replaced beko dryer belt and this is an easier way IMO. firstly remove all screws and remove back and top panels. remove central circlip and washer from rear of drum. disconnect the electrical wires{3{ from top left rear of back . now back panel can be lifted just enough to manouver new belt over drum and with a little effort can then be eased onto motor pulley {only hands needed}. now as mentioned above the casing is now distorted and the screw holes not aligned. heres the trick- insert the drum shaft and washer and circlip lign up the top holes first and inseret screws then with a little effort align one bottom corner and insert screw then repeat at opposite bottom corner continue working at alternate opposites sides and as you go you notice the holes gradually aligning continue until all screws are fitted fit top anbd bottom panel and youre done. i did this alone in about an hour but with 2 it would be a complete doddle .hope this helps

  • mathew995 Jan 08, 2011

    Can someone tell me how the wiring goes i cant remember. Its for those 6 cables colour brown,blue and yellow at the back pannel that connect to a round fuse thing.
    Many thanks

  • chrisp1962 Jan 29, 2011

    Followed jimmyhw1966 advice.... But, 1) lay machine on front on top of bean bag (if you've got one, otherwise towels would do) 2 only disconnected bottom connectors and carefully swing back around to side 3) after putting belt on

  • BigMickF Feb 27, 2011

    jimmyhw1966 's solution above is spot on - just fitted a belt after reading his advice and used the above method - took two people to push and pull the carcass/backplate but job done ;o) Cheers.

  • takbal May 02, 2011

    How did you remove the top panel on the DRCS68? I unscrewed the three screws at the back, but looks like something is keeping it in place at the front. Are they just simple plastic holders? I do not dare to force until I am convinced it will not break something...

  • MattC28 Aug 23, 2011

    Really helpful advice, thank you for taking the time and effort to post the solution, it really helped and gave me the confidence to do the job. I like TVR450, reconnected the drum and wiring and put the back on fully before using a screwdriver (2 at the same time in the end) to prise the belt over the spindle. Also to add to the solutions already provided, the back at the top corners have a lip on them, so to get the back off it helps to prise the sides out a bit to free the lip. Secondly the grey and white pipes down the back just pull off. Thanks guys, an hours time and 14 pound for a new belt has saved me the cost and effort of replacing the tumble dryer

  • MattC28 Aug 23, 2011

    Takbal, probably too late for you now, but for other peoples reference, to take the top off once you've taken the 3 screws out, just lift at the back slightly and slide it off towards the back of the dryer

  • Anthony Lewy Dec 13, 2012

    Thanks guys,the tips on using a length of copper pipe and also laying the machine on its side to counter the body deformation really helped! (then when I went to check it the heater elemnt sparked and disintegrated! So if yours is sagging, best to replace it. Regards,Tony)

  • Anthony Lewy Mar 08, 2013

    Also check the front seal. This can ONLY be replaced from the back after taking the drum out. Mine caught, folded and jammed the drum, so I had to take everything apart again to replace it. Note there are 2 completely different front seals depending on the machine's serial number..

  • Anthony Lewy Mar 08, 2013

    You can also tip the machine on its front to fit things easier, but have towels ready to mop up the water which spills out.

Hi.

Can anyone advise, please, how to replace the "Beko Pulley Belt Small Poly-V (285H4EL) Tumble Dryer Jockey Belt 4PHE285" on, specifically, a BEKO DCU7230 dryer?

It appears the motor needs to be removed, somehow, in order to offer the new belt over the spindle?

Thanks, in advance.

I'm going to have to replace mine myself too I'm really nervous that i might actually cause more damage. After taking off the top and the back do i have to disconnect any wires or anything? Or is it a case of pulling the drum back and slipping the belt over the drum? then putting everything back? I am aware that putting the belt on the motor bit at the bottom is going to be difficult but im struggling with how to get the belt over the drum?? my model is beko drcs68s condensor dryer. Any help would be most gratefully appreciated.

Very useful, I took top and back cover off, pulled drum back to feed belt around it, put back cover back on, removed inspection cover near motor (bottom right on the back), fed belt onto drive shaft using copper pipe as a lever and working belt down onto spindle (then pull copper pipe off spindle leaving belt in place), then fixed inspection plate and top back on, job done :)

Thanks everyone!!! It only took me 40 mins with your help. I removed top and removed all the back panel screws.Removed power lead. Removed circlip and washer moved back panel away from drum & slid belt around drum. Pushed panel back into position, fitted washer and circlip and all screws around edge of back panel.moved pipes in front of motor out of the way by taping them to side of machine. Then used 18inch length of 15mm copper to slide belt onto spline rotating backwards & forwards moving belt with other hand towards spline. Finally aligned belt by rotating drum. Refitted power lead. Fitted the rest of the screws and tested. Good luck!!

SOURCE: changing belt on my dryer

I am not familiar with this particular dryer, but all electric dryers are designed so that the consumer can replace the belt. Open the access door ( the back, the top, or the removable panel at the bottom front) and the belt should be visible; a few minutes of study will show you what you need to do to change it.

    DRUM NOT TURNING ON BEKO TUMBLE DRYER. JUST OUT OF WARRANTY.


    Check your drum belt, sometimes this belt is broken or slipped off the motor pulley or idler arm pulley.
    Also could be a faulty motor..
    Another thing to try is to turn the drum by reaching inside of the drum and turning it by hand 1/4-1/2 turn with the dryer off. Then turn the dryer on again and see if it works.
    Motors will sometimes get a dead zone in them and this help move it from the dead zone.
