My brother was repairing his Simpson Maxidry 1000p and the tensioning bracket and spring have come off. He didn't see where it came from and three of us cannot work it out. Is there a picture i can get as he dooes not have internet connection to find out himself.

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.
I'm afraid I can't help because I have the same issue, but I know the controls come off and remount the other way around so that, while the dryer is upside down, the controls are the right way up. I know this because a service man did it to the dryer in my unit while he was repairing it. I wish I'd watched him. :-[
I know you have already checked but first things first: breaker is not tripped, have 220 volts at outlet, have 220 volts at terminal lugs of dryer, if yes to all then some motors have a switch on the motor, do not know if yours will, it is where the power plugs into the motor, one is a trip the other a reset. Now we get into the other aspects of why dryers will not start, since the door switch is eliminated, then it is on to the others, here is a website that will help, now if all checks good feel free to post, Good Luck Tim:
Well first of all you may check out the Heating element - If a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter (volt meter). No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it (electric heating element not repairable) further you may check the Thermal fuse - A thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse, which is about an inch long, usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. And the last dought goes on the Wiring - you need to deep inspect the wiring in your dryer and check for any burnt sign.
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!
If it is breaking the main circuit of the house there is something wrong. It should throw the breaker to the dryer only. It sounds like you are having a problem with a short between the main breaker and sub panel in the house. Is there any way you can move the breaker in the panel to a different place on the same panel to see if it is that circuit only. If not check the outlet and the plug on the dryer and make sure the wiring is connected correctly.
