My Hotpoint VTD00 tumble dryer is making an unbearably loud vibrating noise. It seems to be coming from the back of the machine.

Our Hotpoint tumble dryer has had a new drum and belt put in 4 days later it is making a horrible grinding noise.


Its possible that the noise is comming from the movement of the drum,the motion of the motor,belt pully or drive spindle.It will be good to reassemble and manually check the moving parts for the noise.
