SOURCE: dryer

There's only a couple of things that will cause the problem you just described. A broken dryer belt, or a defective drive motor. However, most drive motors are equipped with a centrifugal switch that closes when the motor turns. Without this switch closed, the heating circuits would not energize. So...I would recommend you check to see if your dryer belt has broken. If you can post back with comments on BRAND name and MODEL number (located along the inside of the door opening somewhere, or on the back of the console) I can give you advice on how to repair this yourself. Let me know. I hope this helps you.

you dont need to take the back off. to get inside, first remove the panel on the bottom of the front, that will allow you to remove the front panel and you will be able to get inside the dryer. as far as stretching the belt, i have never heard of that. there is a belt tensioner that holds the belt tight though. good luck!

Drier does not tumble but it still heats.


Hi,

Sound like the belt being broken or slipping badly, burn out motor, or worn support parts.
  • Dryer have a belt that rotate the drum, If the belt worn out or broken, it can not move the drum then you just need to replace it.
  • You can check motor by hearing buzzing sound, if the belt has the problem. If you do not hear any sound from the motor then you may have to replace it.
  • Try to move drum manually (by hand), if it is hard to turn then problem with the idler pulley, glides, or drum rollers.
I hope this will solve you problem

Good luck and have a nice day
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Hotpoint Aquarius VTD 00 Tumble dryer no heat


Hi, it sounds like the reset stat gone on your vented drier. Remove the back cover, where the element is, and you should find two stats, one with a green spot. That's your reset stat. If you have a multimeter, turn it to buzzer and check the stat by touching the connections with the meter leads. If there's no buzzing, it's the reset stat. also check if the dark side of the stat is pushed inside. Remove the stat and hold it about 20inches from the floor. Drop it on the floor and the dark side will become flat. Repeat as many times as necessary. GUARANTEED TO WORK. Put everything back and that's it.
Cheers
