You access it from the front. Open the door and you'll see 2 screws on each side. Then you can figure it out. Make sure you unplug it!

My Hotpoint Aquarius TVM570 started making a funny noise then cut out... I changed the fuse to see if it was that but no luck. You can turn the timer but as soon as you press 'start' it just trips...


if you check this link it shows the basics for getting in the dryer ,, after that , you may have to remove the vent tube inside ,, you will see a fan attached to the back of the motor, your missing Rib could be rubbing against that or possibly even the drum as it turns,, be sure and unplug the machine anytime you remove the back

Kenmore 90 series dryer, motor wont start, loud


Hi,
  • Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

  • If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

  • Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Hope this will fix your problem for sure.

My dryer drum sparks when i push on it


You have loose or shorted wiring in the dryer. Unplug the dryer.Raise the top lid. Remove the screws on the top right and left inside the dryer to remove the front panel. Disconnect the door switch wires and set the panel aside. Reach in under the drum and remove the drive belt from the motor and pulley. Remove the drum. Inspect the wiring visible inside. Remove the rear panel from the dryer and inspect all wiring and thermostats and fuse relays.Remove the terminal cover where the cord connects and inspect all wiring there for broke or loose. Open the control panel and inspect all wires there for broken or loose. Repair any wiring found defective and replace any parts found defective.

Access motor


Your dryer and motor can accessed a couple different ways depending on the make and model:

1. Can be the Top (remove 2 screws near filter-pull) can slide a putty knife and screw driver and pop the top off.

2. Also, the Door must be taken off to access the motor (Screws on inside of door)

3. Bottom - panel comes off by sliding a putty knife or screw driver and dis-engaging.

After intially opening the dryer cabinet; you will most likely need to remove the front door by removing 2 screws located at the inside top corners (1/4'). ** Be sure to turn off power to unit before opening and servicing.

Whats the problem? Humming noise? Not tumbling/turning? How old? What make?

Dryer won't turn on. No noises prior to not working.


The door switch does more than turn on the light when you open the door.. It also allow's some to activate the motor circuit thus when you open the door it stops.. the points inside this switch can go bad like the points on an old car and when they do from moisture they make no contact.. check it with a meter from the inside..

Fisher Paykel dryer


buzzing sound generally come from the motor assy, not necessarily a bad motor however. try opening the front door and along the inside of the top of opening is 2 phillips screws the top will tip back and then removing 2 5/16 screws from inside the font panel will remove giving you access to the motor blower assy.. it is possible that something( baby sock, small undergarment) has fallen inti the blower preventing free spin also resulting in a buzzing noise, if so simply remove debris and reassemble.

Hotpoint dryer stop working


if its the same as my dryer CTD40 (or similar) then you have to remove the sides to check into the dryer if anything is stuck, i had a plastic burning smell once and found it was one of the runner wheels had dislodged and was scraping on the drum just re-aline the wheel if it is that, they do come off easily if the dryer has been moved, as i found out. also you will find that the sound of the dryer will change, (scrapeing noise) dont let an engineer lie to you and tell you the bearings have gone, (when i say engineer i mean when you call one out NOT Fixit engineers)
Good luck

Kemore Dryer will not start


the dryer is almost 15 years old! the drum rotates on two or three felt bearings in front and a ball bearing in the rear. the belt may have broken, the tensioner may have loosened. the motor goes in one direction only and starts off a centrifugal start switch. If the motor doesn't get up to speed to open the start winding, the machine just won't go. check the belt first.
