My hotpoint tcd970 dryer keeps tripping the electric why


I presume that you mean that your breaker is tripping.... The first step is to replace the breaker and USE THE SAME SIZE, exactly, or you will become a fire hazard. Breakers eventually start tripping EASIER, rather than less often, which is a safety matter.

IF replacement does not resolve the issue, you need an electrician to investigate what the next step is.

An amp reading will indicate if the dryer is loading higher than it should...

Hotpoint CDT00G Very Noisy


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.

Enter the model number on one of two websites below to get parts and diagrams for your appliance:

Dryer is very noisy during dyring cycle.Used to be so quiet you would have to check to see if it was running.


Your complaint is;"Dryer is very noisy during dyring cycle.Used to be so quiet you would have to check to see if it was running".
You have not provided a brand name or model number. I I can only offer information based on genric or common solutions. Below is a link that should prove helpful if you need additional information.

This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.

You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.
If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,
