My hotpoint aquarius tumble drier is making a very lound griding sound as it turns. What can it be and can it be repaired by myself? the drier is over 8years old is it time for a new one?


This is the plastic "wheel" on the motor that drags the drive belt to spin the dryer. you will need to push back into place with something thin. under the right hand side of the dryer there will be a grill under the motor. look for a black plastic "wheel" and move it away from the casing with something that can fit through the grill.

Hotpoint vtd00p tumble dryer giving a buzzing noise and drum wont turn.changed capacitor but o change


I assume you fitted the right value capacitor and connected it up correctly,if you have then slip the belt of the motor, and make sure it is free to turn with no resistance.
Try it without the belt on, if it runs o/k then problem is elsewhere, if it still does not run , then you could have faulty motor, and or timer. That is as much as I can help you.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint tumble drier TDL52S


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!

Condensing tumble dryer not running


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.
