Zanussi 7114W Belt And Pulley Replacement


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Hi all,

Newbie here,

opened up my condenser dryer to find my belt had got mangled around the pulley assembly.

Damage has been done to the pully - so need to replace it and i'll do the belt at the same time.

Has anybody out there got some tips for me - looks tricky to remove the pulley - as the extractor fan unit connected to the motor spindle is in the way.

first attempt appears tricky to remove the extractor - have removed locking nut - but still a bit stiff - didnt want to yank it and break something else -so any tips here ?

also just wanted to check that there's only a single pulley on these dryers i.e. no idler pulleys - the main pulley got pretty damaged - so not sure what other parts got broke behind it.

The reason i ask, is the belt has plenty of slack - so its probably got stretched - but i just wanted to check.

Any help very welcome.

Hello and welcome. Unfortunately your question is about a tumble dryer and there's only washing machine forums here. I would advise that replacing a belt on a tumble dryer is a lot more involved than doing the same on a washing machine though - Tumble dryer runs but the drum doesn't turn
