TheOsteopath is a pure genius - have had an increasingly noisy hnv 380 and was about to get the yellow pages out for an expensive repair (or replacement) but followed the instructions to the 't' and it works perfectly. Many many thanks. You've saved my pocket and my eardrums. JS.

How old is your dryer? strage noise usually take place if the unit is old and worn out. I dont know of any washer or dryer doesn't make noise after years of using. The more you use the more ware and tear and noise come from the unit. Noise can be the belt loose or tumbler padding or flange, connected to a simple bushing is worn out, making the unit woobily noisy. No heat mean your heating elements probably burnt out need replacing which will cost 80-100 bucks. its fairly easy to replace once you remove the back cover. To find out what making that noise, the best thing to do is run the dryer with the back cover off by look and listhen and see what making that noise.

Have you fixed this problem? I also have a Hoover condenser dryer, only a few months old, and has started to make a squeal/whistle. I'm thinking it might be the front fan needing some WD40, OR too much water vapour around the belt that moves the drum causing the sounds.
If it's the fan, lubricating the shaft and its components should fix the problem, if a wet fan then I'd think maybe fully cleaning the condenser filter, reservoir ect will fix the problem.
The problem seems to go away though "mostly" 15 or so minutes after you start the dryer, so that makes me think ones it gets warm something is expanding to allow more "give" so maybe the belt.
