SOURCE: Replacing the Drive Belt

I am not an expert but I do have a Hotpoint 9334 Tumble Dryer which I guess is similar to the 9314.
To replace belt or heater element you must remove the front panel complete with door.
Screws are different sizes in different places so note where they belong as you remove them.

1. Remove 2 screws at rear top which go through the brackets holding the top panel, slide back the top panel a little and lift it off.
2. Pull off the rotary timer knob and remove 2 screws beneath.
3. This is the tricky bit! Remove the the plastic panel which covers the switches etc.. This panel has 5 plastic fingers which secure it to the metal plate behind, locate the ends of the fingers where they pass through the metal plate. Using a metal rod or punch and a hammer, tap the ends of the fingers to push them back through the holes easing each in turn a little at a time to avoid distorting the plastic unduly. (This is a bit scary as you have to hit them quite hard and the fingers look fragile)
4. Open the door and remove the 4 screws then remove 3 screws at the top and 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel. Lift and ease forward the front panel, unhook the door catch release wire, pull off the electrical connectors and put the front panel aside.
5. Lay the machine on its back and remove 1 screw holding the element housing to the top plate and pull off the electrical connectors.
6. Fit the belt around the drum, through the idler pulleys and over the motor spindle.
7. Put it all back together.

SOURCE: I seem to have trouble fitting the belt tensioner

Not that I am aware of, but it will only work one way. If your trying to put this together with belt in place wait to put the belt on until last. You can thin offset the spring and slip the belt over the pulley/tensioner.

SOURCE: Simpson Maxidry Tumble dryer (Cloths dryer) How

Hi there, There is a switch at the bottom of the dryer. It has a groove for the spring to fit around. Then the spring goes through the metal tag with the holes in the pulley. The pulleys 2 prongs then fits into the slot near the motor. The belt goes through the pulley and around the motor wheel. When fitting the drum, tape the belt at three points on the drum with the machine door facing down making installation easier. Once installed remove the tape. The dryer now works like a dream. See the attached photo. Good Luck!8e72e75.jpg

How do i change the drum belt on simpson minimax dryer


You will have to disassemble the dryer sufficiently to gain access to the belt, then remove it, install a replacement belt, and reasssemble the dryer.

Fan in the Simpson Sirrocco 500 clothes dryer doesn't work.


It is both easy and cheap! I do believe there is a cover on the back of this model hiding the drive belt for the fan. It has iether broken or come off. If it has come off and lint or something of the like was not the cause it is quite possible that it has stretched and will require replacing =)

Clothes dryer stops


sounds like the drive belt has stretched, or the auto tension is low.
disconnect power and remove back cover, clean inside around motor resitor block wires, and inspect/ replace faulty components. good luck!

I have a Heller CD55 clothes dryer, it turns on, draws in air (i think) but doesnt turn or dry my clothes


Sounds like a broken drum drive belt.. Ours does this about once every 6 months.. When it was in warranty the first few times we'd wait the 3 weeks for Heller to post the belt (and the second time, a replacement overheat-cutout sensor, as I was getting sick of having to open the back up and reset it) to the local service place.. Then I got sick of that, and we just take teh 15 min drive to our local appliance parts place, and pickup a 'CPD 7 RIB' (part no 0198300011) belt from a fairly new model simpson dryer, which has exactly the same belt..

I probably wouldn't suggest trying it if you're not a home handyman, as it means pulling the back off, and disconnecting a few wires and undoing a few mounting bolts to get the new belt around the drum, but it's only a 10 minute job if you know what you're doing..

If you want to take it to your local service place, just make sure they realise that they don't have to go to the hellar importer to get the replacement belt - a current model simpson belt fits fine :)

PS, they're 192cm long, 1cm wide, 7 'ribs'..

My dryer (Simpson Minimax 150) seems to be choked? It gets hot and the drum spins, but it doesn't dry clothes and upon opening the door, heaps of steamy air pours out. The lint filter is clean. Is there...


Probably the belt from the fan has broken. The fan is what moves the hot steamy air out of the unit.
