To replace belt or heater element you must remove the front panel complete with door.
Screws are different sizes in different places so note where they belong as you remove them.

1. Remove 2 screws at rear top which go through the brackets holding the top panel, slide back the top panel a little and lift it off.

2. Pull off the rotary timer knob and remove 2 screws beneath.

3. This is the tricky bit! Remove the the plastic panel which covers the switches etc.. This panel has 5 plastic fingers which secure it to the metal plate behind, locate the ends of the fingers where they pass through the metal plate. Using a metal rod or punch and a hammer, tap the ends of the fingers to push them back through the holes easing each in turn a little at a time to avoid distorting the plastic unduly.

4. Open the door and remove the 4 screws then remove 3 screws at the top and 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel. Lift and ease forward the front panel, unhook the door catch release wire, pull off the electrical connectors and put the front panel aside.

5. Lay the machine on its back and remove 1 screw holding the element housing to the top plate and pull off the electrical connectors.

6. Fit the belt around the drum, through the idler pulleys and over the motor spindle.

7. Put it all back together.

Hi.

With most Hotpoint/GE dryers the blower motor is not spin by a belt. The problem is unlikely the blower motor. The problem is lint in the air ducts and in the blower housing. The lint results in overheating and the high limit switch cuts off the power to the heater (burner or element depending on the model).
As a result the dryer does not heat up.

Access the heating group and remove lint from the air ducts. Also clean the lint filter.

Hotpoint appliances are built by GE. Below service manuals for different GE-manufactured dryers:

Can't work out how to fit new belt to my tumble dryer it's a hotpoint aqurius dryer duluxe TL22.


You need to remove the rear panel the top console panel,,and then remove the whole cabinet to gain access to the drum and belt.
Then you need to release the front panel at the top to enable you to fit the belt.
Hope this helps.

Busted belt want to replace with new need a picture of what a properply instaled belt looks like so I can do it myself


With out knowing the make and model of dryer, it is not possible to tell you exactly how the belt will fit, as there are many configerations as to which way the belt could go round various pulleys.
The only jhing in common to them all, is that the belt obviously goes round the drum.
Really need more info
Hope this helps
