Hotpoint aquarius vtd00 dryer starts ok then slows down and stops

Hi, my dryer starts as normal then after about 2 minutes starts slowing down and making a grinding noise before stopping completely, but still sounds like its trying to spin (if that makes any sense)

    my dryer works ok, seem like the drum has dropped off the front panel, is there something under the back end of the drum holding it up level and on the front? nothing has siezed and motor works fine, the belt is not tight enough to turn the drum because the drum seems to have dropped.

    my drum has come off the front and doesn't turn because the backend seems to have come off some kind of wheel and the belt is now not tight enough, although nothing else is wrong, is there something underneath at the backend of the drum that holds it up level and on the front panel?

Sounds like your bearings have gone at the back off your drum behind the small middle panel try turning it by hand if it starts scrapping straight away then u need to replace the bearings m8

HOTPOINT Aquarius VTD00 Model. The dryer is producing heat but the barrel is not revolving

hello, first thing to check is the long pin on the inside of the door make sure it's not snaped off, 2nd thing is the belt inside the dryer . if these are both ok then it's possible that the capacitor next to the motor could be faulty give a tap to see if the motor turns good luck

Runs slow then speefds up

If it is slow in starting, could be faulty start capacitor, slack or worn belt,overloading of course.
the capacitor is mounted near the motor, and is a round cylindrical tube about 4" long.
If u require any more info , then let me know.
Plz rate my solution.

Dryer runs but slows down then speeds up

There are no brushes fitted in the motor in these dryers..
More likely to be a worn belt, or possibly faulty start capacitor.,\which is located adjacent to the motor..
Plz rate my solution.

My hotpoint vtd00 dryer seems to have stopped drying

Have you cleaned the exhaust ducting? The duct that runs from inside to outside. Try that first. Sounds like your exhaust line is blocked. Also with the filter out get a flash light and look down the venting if alot of lint vaccum out. NOTE: Unplug the unit, wheather gas or electric.....and if it is a gas shut off the gas to the dryer before moving just in case something gets loose while moving. Hope this helps.
