    I initially bought a non-elasticated belt but couldn't make it fit despite totally dismantling the tumble dryer casing. The elasticated belt was much easier so I would recommend any 'have-a-go' person to order the slightly more expensive elasticated belt
  • Cheaper then most but poss to short

    Found the price to be cheaper than else where. When I got the belt it was clearly shorter than the original by about 30mm. The belt is advertised as elasticated, but there was no give at all. The size of the belt is 1860mm this was wrote on my old belt and the new one so size was correct but suspect there is a difference in manufactures as the new belt was a different brand. The belt in the picture on the website was exactly the same brand as my original so I had no hesitation in ordering. My worry is that, as the belt is shorter it is adding addition pressure to the bushes etc that the drum runs on. This is an issue as I had to change the rear shaft and bush at the same time as the belt.

      The drum shaft kit is a very common wearing item on most Hotpoint Indesit and Creda dryers and wears in this manner. The belt is a stretch belt and is extremely tight to stretch and has a special tool Stock Number: ES809986 to stretch into place. When warm and used it will stretch a little but this is like a car fan belt reinforced with canvas to keep its strength. I am sure having done this type of repair many dozens of times that the tension and bearing wear is likely to be normal for this unit.

    Next day delivery was excellent. Belt looked alarmingly short compared to the distance it had to cover - but measured same as old belt, you just have to put a bit of effort into getting it on the pulley and then getting the front cover back on. Easier if you can prop the dryer at an angle so the front does not keep falling off the guides.
