Question about Dryers
When power is applied and dryer turned on, sounds as though motor is running but drum is not turning. If left on smell of burning developes. Have removed small panel at rear of dryer and I believe the drive belt for the drum is intact. Wondered if you could shed some light.
Model Hotpoint Aquarious Condensing Tumble Dryer CTD00.
Has the belt shredded and wrapped itself around the shaft? try to manually rotate the drum to see if the belt is free and the motor shaft moves. it sounds like the motor is stuck and the smell is the uncirculated heat at the back. let me know your results.
taking the lid off will gain access.
