    I have a Hoover aqua dynnamique . When I turn it on it just hums and doesn’t turn . If I open the door and push the drum around a little bit then close the door and push the button it will work . Does it need a new belt or just adjusting . Also on each how much will it cost. In advance thank you for your help.

    Excellent instructional video. Thank you so much. I am pretty handy, but I have never done this before and now I feel that I can. My dryer has a condenser, but I think I will be able to work around it.

    I especially appreciate that you show putting it all back together and not just saying “installation is the reverse of removal”!

    I also love that the washing machine next to the dryer is full of clothes just waiting for the dryer to be ready 😉

    Good afternoon

    Thank you for your video. I followed it but unfortunately the drum is not turning like it is supposed to. I’m not sure I have the correct belt. I have asked at local shops and they seem to just want to fix it at a high cost rather than advise me.

    I have an 8kg vented Hoover dryer. VHV 68C

    I have fitted a 1930H belt with the problems above.

    Unfortunately the old belt completely burnt out so I am unable to read any numbers.

    I hope you can assist in some way.

    Thank you in advance

    Hayley
