First, open the unit and check to see if it is clogged with lint. If the unit is tumbling, then it should blow since the belt also runs the blower. If the blower is broke, here is the new blower to order.
It is usually the front that has to be removed. Then you can see how the belt can be placed around the drum and accesssed at the bottom in order to be connected th e the motor pulley. The front usually has a small bolt/screw at the top (inside) that connects it to the side panels. There could also be 2 screws at the bottom (on the outside) for some models. make sure the electric is unplugged and you will need to disconnect the doorsitch wires. The next trick is to know how the belt orients itself around the idler wheel before it attaches to the motor pulley wheel. If you knoe this, great, but if not, it can be frustrating. Perhaps there is a diagram on the inside of the front cover. Just remember that the idler wheel arm must be bent with tension so that the wheel is close to the motor pulley when the belt is applied and finally in place. Goodluck, macgivor
My dad has just rec'd the new belt for Zanuusi Tumble Dryer TC 7102W, he has remove the old one and attempted to fit the new, he is far from stupid but the new belt appears to be too big, please advise
Not all that familiar with the Whiteknight dryer series but a dryer is a dryer and your problem sounds like it could be narrowed down to a few things. Based on your description of the problem and without knowing how much use that dryer has been subjected to, it sounds like you have a belt slipping ..or if it is configured like many other dryers..there may be a belt tensioner that came loose. In either case, the drive motor pulley spins andthe belt doesn't have enough tension or friction on the drum to rotate it. You might try cycling it without clothes to see if it spins up... if it does spin ( without assisting it) then once you add the weight of the clothes it doesn't have enough friction to spin the drum. Hope that helps !
The top of dryer hindged, snap clips in front, pop clips with scewdriver, front panel should slide up and out or tec scews along inside edge, motor should be on your right side facing drum, motor bolted to botom plate, need to check belt tennsoiner for any type of wear and damage,the rest should be simple,re-assemble dryer.
