You will need to remove the front panel:
1) unplug dryer
2) open door remove screws
3) with a flat tip screw driver pry gently up on the top corners it will pop
4) move front panel forward and disconnect door switch
5) sit panel aside
6) lift top lid of dryer 90 degrees it has clip/hinged on back
7) note the routing of old belt
8) replace belt
These are general directions you may have to actual remove more screws, I am not there looking at the dryer, but on all the dryers I have worked on this is how I went about repairing them. Hope this helps Tim

My 20 year old Zanussi dryer model TD 260 has stopped rotating, but the heat is on. Does this mean the belt has gone and where do I get an engineer to fix this.

More than likely is belt, remove the top cover, and you should see if it is the belt.
If you are in the u/k, then go to---


You should be able to arrange for an engineer to visit, or look in yellow pages for local repair company.
