Question about Dryers
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'..

You can get a belt from this number 1300 767 041 or they can tell you where to get it, but be careful we put our own belt on now the dryer keeps losing it heat, there is some button in the back, like a saftey switch that keeps setting off.
