Sounds like the heating element has broke. If it spins and doesnt produce heat its best to call someone out, or buy a new one. If nothing works, check fuses and connections

HOOVER AUTO DRY 5050ED KEEPS STOPPING


hi there, I have repaired many of these dryers. It will be a faulty heater element, most likely. They cost about $40. If you get a tradesman to fit it, they will prob charge you about $200 all up. Maybe its better to buy a new dryer for around $300? Good luck.

I've a hoover apollo delux dryer still working well 5kg, 19 years old. Would like to know energy rating as giving it away to a friend.


The energy rating for this dryer is 1.5 stars. Of course it depends on the condition of the dryer and how well it has been maintained.
Does the hot air coming out of the front vent smell scorched or burnt? If so, you need to get the back off, clean out all the lint inside there. Then remove the drum, then remove the heater element carrier off the back of the drum. Its the only way you can clean all the lint out from around the heater element. After 19 years, its going to be needing it.
Please don't pass the dryer to your friend without having it properly cleaned out as described. Don't give your friend a fire hazard. Dryers cause house fires, don't risk it please.

Hi, my 5kg hoover tumble dryer is having difficulty operating with a 5kg load. It doesn't spin very well now, is the motor wearing out? Bearings? are there any grease points I can get to? Please advise....


is it belt driven one?....if so maybe the drive belts need adjustment and some lube squirted on the bushes/bearings could help.Make sure you are not overloading it....common problem.

Hoover Apollo Delux not drying properly and takes ages. Outlet air is hot but my wife says it's not drying as well as it used to. The front filter is clean but is there an inlet filter that I'm overlooking...


T^o much lint in duct work, causing moisture and not allowing cloths to dry. Vacuum out duct work in dryer and from dryer to outside of home.

No hot air from my tumble dryer


Hi.
You do not state whether it is a condenser or vented dryer.
the most obvious reasn for no heat is element and/or stats..
The only way to confirm which it is-- is to meter them out with a multi meter..
If you have one then set it on the ohms range and test the components for continuity, you should get full scale deflection if they are o/k.
You must disconnect the wires to the components, or you will get a false reading, and needless to say, have the m/c unplugged.

If all test o/k then the problem could be with the timer and or control unit, or the heater relay if it has one.Unknown to me as I do not know your model number.
If it is a condenser dryer, make sure all filters are clear, air intake and outlet vents clear, water container empty .
Plz rate my solution
Thanks

Hi, I've got an older Hoover Apollo 411 tumble dryer which has just stopped heating. It still spins but obviously doesn't dry without heat. I presume that it is some sort of element or heating coil that...
