Hoover Washer/Dryer WM120 : Dryer function - drum not turning

Hoover Washer/Dryer WM120
The washer cycle appears to be running normally but in the drying cycle the drum is not turning (but there is heat). Are there 2 separate belts in this machine - one for the wash cycle and one for the dryer ?
Any help gratefully appreciated as I'm new to this machine, recently inherited by my daughter.
Thanks

My hoover washer dryer wont start? No power


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Drum knock when spin cycle


Hello.
Noises are common when using a two-in-one washer and dryer, as clicking or whirring is part of the cleaning process during the transition to the next cleaning process. The GE Spacesaver washer and dryer combo uses a top-loading washer stacked beneath the front-loading dryer, and uses an agitator that makes noises throughout the spin cycle. Although whirring or clicking is normal, other noises or malfunction indicates a problem with the washer that requires minor troubleshooting. Professional repair is necessary if the washer continues to experience problems during the spin cycle, as there may be a problem with the washer's agitator.
1 Open the washer's door and check the balance of the load's clothes. Clothes that are unevenly distributed around the agitator cause excessive shaking and result in an imbalance during the spin cycle. Reduce the load's size by removing clothing if the washer's drum is overloaded.
2 Push "Start/Pause" to pause the spin cycle and turn the washer's cycle knob to the "Off" position. Turn the knob to "Spin Only" and press "Start/Pause" to reset the cycle.
3 Turn the wrench counterclockwise or clockwise around the unit's legs to adjust the appliance's balance. The legs are adjustable with the help of a wrench to ensure the unit does not shake while in use. An unleveled unit shakes as it spins, and causes excessive squealing or rattling as it attempts to dry the clothes.
4 Touch "Start/Pause" on the front of the washer's control panel and unplug the washer/dryer unit's power cord from the electric oultlet. Wait two minutes and plug the power cord back into the electric outlet. Push "Start/Pause" to resume the spin cycle.
Thanks.

My washer will not fill with water or do any functions when i turn the dial


My Hoover 7700l ...on "fill" cycle, the water dribbles in. Takes hours to fill so we use buckets to reach the required level.

Tried: Swapping cold and hot water inlet hoses, making sure that dial is in "hot". This solved the problem for filling, BUT when "rinse cycle appoars, it's back to the dribble again.

any ideas?

Hoover hpe236 drum doesn't turn during wash cycle


Watch the motor when it is supposed to be running. If nothing, measure for voltage across the brushes and across the motor power terminals. Make sure the motor will turn freely by hand. If power is present, there may be an open wire to either the field winding or one of the brushes.

Electrolux Lavamat Turbo 16830 Washer/Dryer but dryer not working


Has the little belt on the dryer turbo come off? or is the turbo seized - it should turn freely by hand. You may need to replace the turbo fan if the belt keeps coming off - the pulleys can get out of alignment, ie not running parallel to each other - they tend to be cheapo plastic construction these days. Could also be dryer elements or thermostat problems, or blockage with lint causing reduced air flow and overheating - but check belt first.
