Dryers often save not only time but also the energy of their owners. However, the situation when the drying function does not work can significantly spoil the plans and put the customers in a difficult position. What to do in this case? First of all, it is necessary to investigate the reason for the malfunction. Sure, it is hard to detect the issue without seeing the broken dryer, but we may suggest a problem with the drive belt. This scenario often happens when the owner overloads the appliance or it is not a new dryer. You can replace the belt on your own using the steps below. Remove the top cover and to do this you will need to undo the screws at the back. With the top out on the way you should be able to see the drum and the belt, you can remove the broken belt as this will just get in your way. To fit the new belt it’ll need to be dropped in around and in front of the drum, and to do that will take some dismantling. With both side panels out on the way you can next undo the five screws at the top of the back plate and also remove the water drawer and its housing. With the screws removed next thing is to remove the water container housing, so disconnect the hose and ease the water container out of its position, and the hose will just lift up with it. Once the housing is out of the way next is to remove the heater cover by undoing the screws which hold it in place. Once the heater cover is removed, you can now begin to remove the heater fan - using a socket you can undo the nut that holds it into place. Now to allow some room to fit the belt you next only want to loosen the three screws at the bottom. With the three screws loosened you now be able to move the drum back a touch and drop the new belt around the drum. Using the belt as a handle, you need to reposition the drum and then reattach the side rails to hold it into position. Once completed you can now reconnect the water drawer housing and make sure that the hoses are in the right position - feed hose back through the drawer at the back and then reposition the housing. Reconnect the lower hose, and feed it through the clip in the chassis and reposition it in the sump. Your next step is to re-tighten the screws you loosened earlier, then reattach the two rails at the top, and you can then re-screw in the housing before reattaching the fan and the heater cover. Moving onto the right side of the dryer you’ll see the motor assembly and the fan cover - the fan cover needs to now be removed. You’ll need to do this to fit the new belt around the motor spindle. Fortunately, you can arrange a maintenance visit and delegate hard jobs to a professional.
