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.

SOURCE: beko tumble dryer was making strange noise now no

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.

SOURCE: Hoover Maxi 6 TC50 Tumble Dryer making squealing 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.

Whirlpool dryer awz 121 only tumbles counter clockwise. This is a dryer that briefly reverses direction, so the only tumbling is when it reverses. The rest of the time, the dryer makes a noise but d


You may want to contact a professional that will have the diagrams for your machine online. there are some here or you can go to another site. like (Just answer.) Be more specific about your problem. It can be fixed . There's no worries.

Are you saying that it does not heat up either ?In addition with not tumbling clockwise ?

Disconnect the dryer first. You can remove the top and front of the dryer to check to see what is happening. If it does not heat . You may need to replace the temperature control relay. If that does not work , the heating elements themselves may need to be replaced.

For the tumbling problem, they also have relay switches that go out.
BUT, if it is tumbling to one side and keeps tumbling then that will probably be enough to dry your clothes. As long as it is not too heavily loaded.

Hoover HDV 7 FM tumble drier. The drum is not turning (its making a loud buzzing noise like its trying to get going) and the filter light is on, although that is free from fluff. Is it time for a new drier...


sumanth m 's answer may well be correct because I have the same dryer and it has the same problem. I got a massive electric shock off mine and so I think the buzzing is a protection measure against a short circuit

Dryer stuck in sensing mode


Since no help was available without premium assistance, I actually contacted a repairman. He performed all the tests again and told me the problem was the control board. Then wanted $600 to fix. I found the part online for $150 and fixed it myself in about an hour. Instructions were easy.
