My white knight turns on but dosnt spin but belt is ok can u help plz tried reset button but nothing happens


This will likely be the capacitor to the motor. A cheap & common fault to fix. With the door open and the timer set spin the drum by hand and close the door the cycle shouldvstart and your drum will then turn. Sure sign your capacitors blown.

Ive changed the belt on my white knight tumble dryer CL 372 once put back together the drum won't turn and makes a loud noise


There are two do-nut shaped rollers that the tumbler rests on located behind the tumbler. One or both could be bad. Some models have a single "axle" in the center of the tumbler that may be causing the problem.

My white knight tumble dryer wont start


Nothing works or drum fails to turn (tumble dryers)
Ensure that the power supply to the dryer is switched on, the timer is set to the desired drying time and the door is correctly closed. If you have a condenser model, also check that the bottle is empty and is fully pushed into the machine.

The first thing to establish when troubleshooting the clothes dryer is whether the dryer will start or not. If it won't, start by checking the outlet and the circuit breaker. Is the dryer plugged in or has it tripped the circuit breaker? If the breaker has been tripped, flip it back on and try the dryer again. The drum should turn without a problem.
If both plug and breaker are fine, you'll need to inspect the door switch as you continue to troubleshoot the tumble dryer. When you close the door on the dryer, a plastic peg should click and operate the switch which allows the dryer to work. The peg might be bent or broken, in which case it won't connect with the switch. You can try to straighten the peg, but if it's broken, you'll need to replace it. If the peg is fine, the switch has probably failed and will need to be replaced.

My white knight 44 aw is not coming on


Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

White knight


take the plug
does it make a buzzing sound or do you hear the motor turning
or if you spin the drum by hand it spins freely if it spins freely check the belt and jockey wheels

Drum wont turn.pust start and hear a buzz but drun wont turn


I have found that the switch activated by the door close or turns on the interior light when open on is likely the problem. You may notice that if the door is open and you push the start button, it will buzz. So if the door is closed and you get this buzz when pushing the start button, there is a problem with the door switch. The start button "thinks" the door is open, and therefore not start. The defective door switch needs to be replaced. At least highly likely.

My White Knight sensordry tumbledryer has been making a loud banging noise, (like there are shoes banging about). Is it a bearing problem? Is it a problem that i can fix?


sounds like the bearing carrier has come away from the drum-same as mine,seems to part of the drum
so not available seperately-its riveted on not bolted,mine has deformed and enlarged the rivet holes in the drum so a repair dosent seem practicle if yours hasnt chewed itself up then you may be able to replace the rivets with nuts and bolts and maybe change the bushing kit for about 6 quid
