Hopefully there's instructions on the belt container. Keep in mind the grooves go around the motor pulley, probably up on the drum. The tensioner is always tough, hard to get both hands in the area. One to hold the tensioner in place, the other to install the belt around the pulleys. Eventually I have to work out a way to do it with one hand. Take your time, practice, watch out for sharp edges. Of course, have the unit unplugged.
If there's no instructions, keep in mind that the belt must go around the motor pulley more than half a turn, and usually the same for the tensioner. That results in an S-shaped configuration, with the tensioner making a long swing to get into place, stretching the spring out.

Creda simplicity t313vw glowing red and heating to quick

I'm not familiar with the T313vw, however, if it's an electric dryer, check the element and make sure that the element isn't grounding out to the chassis. You can check it with an ohmmeter set to check continuity by unplugging your dryer and disassembling it a little to get access to the element, then disconnect one of the leads to the element and place one lead from your ohmmeter on the terminal you just disconnected and the other lead to the chassis ground. You should have NO continuity. If you read a short, then your element is grounding out and needs to be replaced.
Barring that, a bad operating thermostat can cause similar problems.
Good luck!

How to fit a belt on a hotpoint vtd00 tumbledryer

You will find a groove towards the middle of the drum. This is the path the belt will run on.Just put the belt around the drum and then around the pulley of the motor. You may find on your model a spring loaded tensioner that you can move with your fingers. This will allow you to put it on without loosening the motor from its frame.They are pretty easy to put on. You may want to remove the top of the dryer if you are having trouble working with the belt. There is not much clearance in there. Total time needed with taking the top off is about 30 minutes. Let me know if you have any problems.

Hotpoint condenser tumbledryer

Check the amp use of your dryer and compare it to the fuses.
If the dryer is taking more amps than your fuse can dish then it will blow. Upgrade your fuse and/or breaker to a higher amp rating.
