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.

SOURCE: hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry

I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.

SOURCE: HOW DO I ?

You probably need to thread the new belt over the drum by removing the circular rubber front seal temporarily. After putting the seal back on, ease the belt into the correct position and thread over the pulley on the motor. You will probably find it easier to put it over the pulley wheel of the motor first, with the belt partially off the drum. Then rotate the drum manually whilst easing the belt over it.

SOURCE: Thermostat keeps blowing on Hotpoint Aquarius dryer

Remove the filter completely from the bottom left of m/c
Wash out thoroughly under running water.
Reach in with your hand and clear any fluff and gunge you can find there.
At the rear of the filter housing there is a small drainage hole that blocks up.get a plastic bag tie or similar and poke it clear. Also there is a float chamber and some times the float sticks, this being the case , then it involves a complete strip down to clear prob.
Hope this helps
Plz rate solution
.Thanks.

SOURCE: 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.

Hi, My Hotpoint TVM570 Aquarius is making a loud screeching noise occasionally. It isn't doing it every time my partner just used it for an hour with no issues. However I used it for 5 minutes this...


wonder if you are overloading the machine and the noise is the drive belt screeching. if it sounds similar to a loose fanbelt on a car, it could be drum bearings that are seizing up (check by manaually rotating the drum. if it spins freely its ok) or the drive belt is getting worn and needs replacing

Kenmore Heavy Duty Plus Dryer 86273100 drum won't spin


How could the belt be in working order if the drum doesn't spin? Check to see if the belt has come off the motor. If the motor runs but your dryer doesn't spin, the belt is off. If the motor runs with the belt on but it still won't spin then you'll have a lot of black smoke because your drum is jammed. In other words, there are a number of things that could be wrong, but not very many.
