Question about Dryers
I have a Hoover clothes dryer model 3525D, the barrel will not turn unless I help it along, this suggests that the belt may be loose. Is there a tensioning arm or similar, or is it the motor may be faulty as in not enough power to drive it?
The most likely cause is a faulty start capacitor. I obtained a new one for $22.00AUD from a local spares shop. You have to remove the back and then the motor mounting plate to get access to it as it is behind the mtr when viewded from the rear I had to remove the long wires from the connector block to attach the replacement directly. You will also need a cable tie to attach it.
Be carefull and make sure the dyer is unplugged as lethal voltages are present.

Yes - a belt will cost you around $10. Most likely it is slipping. There is a tensioning arm. Just ebay belt for 3525D. I replaced mine last weekend.
