If you hear a hum the motor is locked up(obvious). otherwise it could be anything from a door switch to a timer. the most comon though is probobly a thermal fuse

Remove the top to see if the belt is intact. If it is, you will need to replace the motor. Here is the motor to order.If the belt is broke, here is the belt to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

If you have the belt down in the groove on the tub it won't work. The belt slick side goes to the drum and goes back like this:

I HAVE A TUMBLE DRYER BECKO DRVS62W THE BELT HAS SNAPPED HOW DO I REPLACE IT. THE DRUM DOES NOT ROTATE MANUALLY IS THIS ANOTHER PROBLEM OR WILL THE DRUM ROTATE ONCE THE BELT HAS BEEN REPLACED.


Hi,
If this is an electric tumble dryer,
the way to replace the belt is from the rear of the machine,
remove all the screws on the rear silver panel, which gives you access to the internals of the dryer.
And yes the drum wont turn properly if the belt is broken.

I hope this helps you.
If so please leave a vote or comment.

Have a great day

The drum on our Neptune Dryer has stopped turning. It still heats up, but the drum just won't turn.


If the heater and blower work then th eprblem is with the drum turning system
This includes the motor ( which we will presume works because the blower does),the belt (Item #25 in the Cylinder, heater and bulhead diagram) and a spring and idler pully (Items 20 and 21 in the Base, Motor, and blower diagram)
Most likely problem is the spring broke releasing tension that halds the belt to the motor pully and drum. Second most likely is the belt has stretched.
You need to open the unit to determine where the problem lies.
Here are diagrams and parts listing for that machine.
Good luck!
