Here are the steps to get the belt and tension pulley and spring attached properly.
1. Remove the drum from the dryer housing
2. Fit the belt around the drum, secure the belt to the drum (grooved side towards the drum, flat side away from the drum) with small strips of masking tape. Leave a loop of about 10-15 cm's free to fit around the motor. (This was Hurdle #1, it was next to impossible to hold the belt on with one hand and attempt to work out the tension pulley thing at the same time)
3. Place the drum back in to the dryer housing and rotate it so that your belt loop is facing the motor.
4. (Hurdle #2) Attach the tension pulley to the motor assembly bracket. (There should be slots in the bracket for the pulley bracket to insert into. The pulley faces away from the motor, about a 45 degree angle.
5. (Hurdle #3) Feed the belt through (under) the pulley and then over the motor's drive wheel or nub, whatever it's called.
6. (Finaly Hurdle) Attach the spring to the pulley assembly. In the centre of the dryer housing floor, there should be a seam, in the centre of this seam there is a small hole where the other end of the spring attaches too. Stretch and insert the other end of the spring into this hole.
7. Remove the masking tape that's holding the belt down.
8. Re-assemble dryer and your done.

A service(repair) manual would be great for you.

you should be able to get one from simpson

This site is for australia
http://www.simpson.com.au/locator/search/service/

might not be a good idea to call australia if your not over there.
check the manual / service card for contact information, ask for a repair manual that should solve all your problems in putting it back together.

Two things to check. First, check for any lint in the screen or lint build up in the exhaust. this will restrict airflow. Secondly, check to see if the heating element is bad.

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

MY SIMPSON MAXIDRY 362 3.5KG HEAVY DUTY DRYER KEEPS OVERHEATING AND CUTTING OUT. WHEN IT STOPS AND I PRESS THE SAFETY SWITCH IT TURNS ON AGAIN BUT ONLY FOR 10 MINUTES. CAN YOU ADVICE ME ON WHAT I CAN DO...


I would check the exhaust pipe outside and make sure it is not blocked and has good strong air flow while the dryer is running. If there is not good airflow, then clean out the exhaust hose and pipe. There could be other problems, but I would start with this.
