You may need to take the dryer apart again...check the drum rollers, if they are worn they will put excessive pressure on the drum as it rotates against the seal causing this problem.
Good luck
I hope this helps

How do I replace the belt on my hotpoint futura tumble dryer?


I can't answer your question exactly but in my experience tumble drier belts are not particularly complicated to replace but the process is fairly time-consuming and involved as in order to slip the new belt over the drum an almost complete strip-down of the cabinet is needed.

It is a route-march of removing screws and plastic trim until something important falls off. The task then becomes rather more a thorough interior clean and a changing of felt bearings than merely replacing the belt. The belts last so long that by the time they need replacing the other things are also ready for attention.

Drier does not tumble but it still heats.


Hi,

Sound like the belt being broken or slipping badly, burn out motor, or worn support parts.
  • Dryer have a belt that rotate the drum, If the belt worn out or broken, it can not move the drum then you just need to replace it.
  • You can check motor by hearing buzzing sound, if the belt has the problem. If you do not hear any sound from the motor then you may have to replace it.
  • Try to move drum manually (by hand), if it is hard to turn then problem with the idler pulley, glides, or drum rollers.
I hope this will solve you problem

Good luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Removal of door seal on hotpoint washer drier wd420


You will achieve nothing by removing the door seal .
Depending what is in there, better to leave alone and trust it will find its way into the filter.
If it is anything substantial then it involves major work.

Hotpoint tumble drier TDL52S


you dont need to take the back off. to get inside, first remove the panel on the bottom of the front, that will allow you to remove the front panel and you will be able to get inside the dryer. as far as stretching the belt, i have never heard of that. there is a belt tensioner that holds the belt tight though. good luck!
