QPros & cons of 'pulley version' belt vs. 'elasticated version' for Creda 37762e1 Answer
On eSpares, my dryer (Creda 37762e) is listed as being compatible with both these belts. I can't see any indication of date-specificity in the compatibility listings. They cost the same. Is one type better than the other, e.g., is the elasticated type less prone to slipping?

Hi irb, there's no definitive 'better' belt. Curiously, in your particular model, there's two ways to do exactly the same job. The elasticated belt is smaller belt of the two, and fits around the drum and the motor spindle. The pulley version of the belt fits around a spring loaded pulley. Basically, the belt must be completely taut to spin the drum - the elasticated version's tension comes from the elasticated material it is made of, and the pulley version gets its tension from the spring loaded pulley it fits around. In terms of which one I'd recommend, I'd say go with whichever you currently have in your dryer - you'll easily be able to see when you remove the back panel of the dryer.
