Hi, I have a Siemens SIWATHERM WT79020EU drier and it is making a creaking sound when it runs (or when you turn it by hand). I suspect the belt however cannot see how to get to it. I have taken off the back panel (access to the fan) and the top cover but can't get access to the motor at the bottom. Grateful for confirmation as to the cause of the noise and / or advice on how to replace the belt.
Please let me know if you need more information.
Thanks. I have the panel off and I can see the belt that is causing the groaning or squeaking sound. It's the small belt from the motor shaft to the idle wheel. What should I do to stop the noise?
I took a video of the belt turning but can't find a way to upload it to you.
It looks a bit worn but I can't see any cracking. Difficult to tell as it's a bit hard to get to. I have attached a picture.
Thanks. XXXXX had to replace the belt how would I do it?
