Question about Hotpoint Dryers

1 Answer

Drum not turning

I have a hotpoint aquarius vtdoo tumble dryer, the drum wont spin, disconnected belt, the motor will only start turning if you give it a spin with your fingures. I guess something in the motor is worn, can you replace anything in the motor like brushes ? New motors seem to be about £70 and a new machine is only £130

Hotpoint aquarius tvm570 dryer


Either the belt is broken or possibly the motor starter has failed. Very often the belt. Be warned though, modern day tumble dryers use stretch belts that can be very difficult to fit.

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.

Tumble dryer makes whine noise but doesnt spin


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.

HOTPOINT DRYER VTD00G REPLACED BELT BUT WONT SPIN


Most likely to be a faulty start capacitor.
This a round plastic cylinder adjacent to the motor.
This gives the motor a kick start.
