Hello gary. If the bearings in the pulley are worn, this will cause too much tension for the motor to turn the drum. Lint builds up between the shaft and the wheel and takes away the grease. After the pulley runs for a while without the grease it can start to squeak. That's usually when belts start breaking. Replacing the pulley will take care of this.

I repair lots of dryers and I make it a standing practice to replace the idler pulley along with the belt. This saves me lots of return trips. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

DRYER MOTOR RUNS BUT DRUM DOES NOT SPIN


That might be a broken belt or a locked wheel or bad glides or all of the above. Reach inside and turn it to see if the drum turns easy. If it is stiff and hard to turn ya got problems and broken belt also most likely. Youtube has tons of dryer belt replacement videos. Here is mine:

Beko Tumble Dryier - Model DRVS 73 W the Belt 9PHW 1967 has broken. Is there a step by step guide on how to fit the replacement belt.


Very easy on all tumble dryers.

UNPLUG FROM POWER FIRST!

This is simply a case of:
Take the top off the machine (Usually a couple of screws holding the lid on at the back).
Or - Rempove the inspection panel from the back
Drop the new belt over the drive motor spindle
On some machines you may need to thread the belt around a tensioning wheel
Now take the belt and place it on the side main wheel that drives the drum and simply spin the drum wheel with your hand, guiding the new belt into place as you spin the wheel.
It should simply stretch a little and work its way onto the wheel as it is hand turned.

Note, once it is on, take a look at the drive motor and make sure that the belt is sitting in the same place as the old one. Most of these motors have a slotted spindle and you can see from the clean and shiny surface where on the spindle the belt used to sit. If it is a little out of place, once again just take hold of the belt and pull it toward you or push it away as you spin the main drum wheel in order to move it into the correct slot.

Hi, I have a Beko DRCT70W tumble dryer and the belt keeps breaking. I've replaced it twice in the last month, so I think there must be another fault with the dryer which is causing this. The drum...


hi folks the beko tumble dryers have a felt seal that runs along the front of the drum that wears through causing load on the drum, belt and motor causing the belt to melt and snap, replace the felt you will have no more issues, i got mine off of ebay pretty cheap

Past few days, dryer got very noisy. Then drum


The noise is coming from a moving part. There are only a few that normally cause a problem. Also the dryer drum not turning freely is what broke your belt. Here is what I would replace. Drum rollers, Drum slides and idler pulley. You can check these parts before you replace them. If the drum rollers don't spin real easy, replace. If the idler pulley does not turn easy, replace. If the drum slides are worn, replace. Your model may be one with a front drum bearing. If it looks worn, replace.
You may be able to take dryer apart, try turning drum. Listen for the noise and notice if the drum is hard to turn. If so, you may be able to determine if the problem is in the front or back of drum. Keep on mind that the noise might have been the belt slipping due to the drum being hard to turn. Either way, when you have it repaired, it should run with the noise. Good luck.

I have a beko 1510s washer drum not spinning at all


the noise is possibly the bearings, if these are loose the tension on the belt will not be kept, no tension the belt will fall off. you have to check the bearings, empty the drum of clothes and lift the rim of the drum you should feel a loosness before the tub moves. Drum is the stainless steel bit Tub is the plastic but the drum sits in. if this (as I suspect) very loose your bearings are gone, alternativeley if not it could be the belt tension thats too loose, you might have some adjustment on the motor bracket for this or a new belt. but if the bearinings its cheaper to replace the machine than the bearings due to labour costs. insurance may cover it?

DRUM NOT TURNING ON BEKO TUMBLE DRYER. JUST OUT OF WARRANTY.


Check your drum belt, sometimes this belt is broken or slipped off the motor pulley or idler arm pulley.
Also could be a faulty motor..
Another thing to try is to turn the drum by reaching inside of the drum and turning it by hand 1/4-1/2 turn with the dryer off. Then turn the dryer on again and see if it works.
Motors will sometimes get a dead zone in them and this help move it from the dead zone.

Tumble dryer makes whine noise but doesnt spin


Sounds like the drive belt has gone,and the noise you can hear is the motor going round.
The red glow you can see, will be the heater element glowing..
To check the belt, remove top cover, and you will be able to see if the belt is on or not, if you can see it round the drum, try to lift it up, if it has not broken,then you will not be able to remove it, and that means the motor or drum could be siezed, try to turn the drum by hand, it should be fairly stiff to turn, but not that stiff that you cannot turn it at all.

Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
