Question about Dryers
After being on for a good few hours, my TV630 was switched off while I left the house for half an hour, when I came back and switched it on the timer dial seemed to be making a louder noise and the drum wouldn't spin. I am not sure if the extra noise heard from the timer dial is just due to the drum noise being absent. If unloaded I can get the drum to spin but only with a little push start! I assume its the belt slipping or something although I can't hear any slipping noise, If anyone has any advice on this please reply, I have already changed the heater element on this so would really like to repair rather than replace.

Sounds like the drive belt has gone,and the noise you can hear is the motor going round.
The red glow you can see, will be the heater element glowing..
To check the belt, remove top cover, and you will be able to see if the belt is on or not, if you can see it round the drum, try to lift it up, if it has not broken,then you will not be able to remove it, and that means the motor or drum could be siezed, try to turn the drum by hand, it should be fairly stiff to turn, but not that stiff that you cannot turn it at all.
Please rate my fixya solution.

Check the belt routing over the idlers near the motor, there is a spring tensioner, also make sure idlers are smoothly rotating and not seized.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.
