Hoover Condenser Dryer HNC375T making load screeching noise when in reverse

We thought this was the belt and have bought a new belt. However when we took the top panel off, the belt looks unworn. The dryer is only 2 years old but does get quite a lot of use. We can't figure out how to get to the motor. Does the back come off? How do we get to where we can replace the belt, or do you think it is a different problem?

I think you may have a bad relay on the motor, where power is re-applied after the push start is released

My question is related to the previous thread. However id like to reitterate the problem so that whoever stumbles upon this thread on google could help them immensely. I bought my mitsubishi montero sport...


Ian,
There are two fans in a vehicle, One is in the engine compartment and is for the radiator. The other is in the passenger compartment and it runs the heater and air conditioner air flow from the plenum. The condenser is near the radiator and the evaporator is in the plenum. Condensers don't fail. Neither do evaporators. If the squeal is coming from the engine compartment when the air conditioner is turned on, the problem is either the belt to the COMPRESSOR or the CLUTCH on the compressor.

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.

Screeching noise and burn smell how do I open dryer to repair


Pull it out from the wall, unplug it and remove the back panel by removing the screws. The problem is most likely the belt around the drum which is either worn out or out of alignment. Take a look at it and decide if you can just straighten it on the drum or if you will need to buy a new belt.

My machine did exactly the same thing until the belt snapped - and it's a very painful noise!! I'm about to replace my belt and if this solves the problem I'll let you know.

Dryer makes screeching noise runs for awhile then shuts off.


The 1,5 year new dryer makes a terrible screaching noise when it has a load of clothes in it. It still dries fine, no problem with the heating element. No noise without clothes, only when it has a load.

ED55 dryer making screeching noises


sounds like the rear tub bearing has worn out that would explain the noise and if it got too bad the bearing can break causing the drum to stick and not be able to turn
