Question about Dryers

HI. OUR NOVEMBER 1995 HOOVER APOLLO DRIER WORKS FINE BUT MAKES A HORRIBLE SQUEAKING NOISE WHEN IT IS TUMBLING IN ANTICLOCKWISE MODE. IT HAS ACTUALLY MADE THIS NOISE MOST OF ITS LIFE. CAN YOU SUGGEST WHAT THE PROBLEM MIGHT BE PLEASE? CLIFF

    Hi again.

    I will need to get a hand to lift it off the wall as the Model No must be on the back. The front says only Hoover Apollo Supreme, but the Operating Instructions cover Models 402/412/422/Delux/Supreme. There is no plate inside the door.

    Thank you.

    Cliff

    Sorry for delay. The Model Number is DF010.

    Cliff.

    It's a Hoover Apollo Supreme, but I am in Australia, so I now suspect we have different model numbers to the rest of the world.

    Whilst I had it off the wall I took the back off and ran it. I found that the noise was coming from one of the Jockey Pulleys. The bush was dry. I cleaned up the axles and replaced both pulleys. Rear bearing and belt were OK and noise has now gone.



    Thank you very much for your time and efforts to assist me.

    Cliff.

    Well I am glad that you have been able to do the work and it wasn't too awful, was it. Most people get worried because they don't know how to open them. You now realize how simple they are. Goodluck to you. Bye now.

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
