Hi

I got a Hotpoint Aquarius Condenser tumble dryer in Graphite grey.

Itís about 4 years old. I switched it one for the first time in a month & it has developed a fault.

When you press the start button you hear the motor like itís tying to start, but the drum isnít turning. It does appear to have heat though.

I took the first external rear plate off, which was the heater element cover and turned the fan that poked out the bottom and I could see the drum turned, as I rotated the fan.

I am going to have a more of look at the weekend as removing whole rear plate going to be bit longer. Anyone got any ideas what it could be

ok, just to confirm it's the right hand panel standing at the front, which is the left hand panel standing at the rear? Yes.
