Hotpoint aquarius ctd00 tumble dryer...everything working but drum wont turn

it looks like you need to put the belt back on which is inside the machine. to do this open the lid with screws on back take lid off then you should see the belt inside the machine and where is was before on the drum of the machine. slip it back on and put lid back on and it should start turning again. hope this helps.

Washing machine making vey load something is wrong noise. Called repair man, he states too young (2yrs) to be a drum problem and okay to use just do smaller loads. On 2nd load found metal shavings..have...

The rear half of the outer tub that contains the rear metal bearing has loosened so much that the inner drum has sagged and is rubbing on the front half of the outer tub. You need to see if this is under warranty. There is usually a 5 year warranty on the outer tub and a 10 year or a lifetime warranty on the inner tub. When I do this repair, I replace the rear half of the outer tub and the inner drum since it's under warranty anyway. The repair is the most difficult and time consuming repair possible on that type of washer. It needs to be done by an expert, not just your average washer repair guy. It's not rocket science, but you have to take EVERYTHING apart and it takes a long time and you've gotta know a few things about the machine in the first place. It's not fun. If it's under warranty for parts, expect to pay between $75 and $200 for labor. If the parts are not under warranty, then throw it away. They're $500+ for the parts.

Tumble will not turn the belt was off but now put it back on still not turning altho motor at bottom is

if the motor is running, the belt is on but the drum is not turning then either the belt is slack and slipping, or the drum is jammed. possibly and item of clothing is stuck between inner and outer drums. remove belt and turn drum pulley, it should turn easily.

Hotpoint Aquarius WF220 Front Load Washer dirty rubber drum seal

its a matter of removing the front retaining wire and the inner one which holds it onto the drum, an easy enough job to get off, sometimes a pain to get the inner off and on depending whether it s the screw or clamp type , screw=easy. to get the clamp off use a screwdriver to wiggle the bent wire out of the ratchet grooves. to put back is done with long nose pliers, preferably bent nose ones.

You may have a broken inner tub spider. Check for play between the inner drum and the outer tub by moving the inner drum up and down.
If there is excessive play, the spider is broken causing an unbalanced load and therefore no high speed spin can be achieved.

In this case the inner drum would need to be replaced, which means taking the machine almost completely apart. A good tech can do it in about 1.5 hours.

Maytag Washer Noise While Spinning

Most washer models have snap-clips holding the front of the top panel down, with hinge-like clips at the back. Carefully pry up the top panel on the front of the machine using a tool that won't scratch the finish, such as a plastic or wooden wedge. If it does not pop loose fairly easily, then carefully examine the back of the machine to see if this is a rare model that has screws holding down the top panel. (But really, it _should_ just pop loose.) Once the top panel is tilted up to expose the inside, you should be able to see everything you need to see inside the body to evaluate a spinning drum problem.
