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

SOURCE: The felt seal on my Hoover HNC175 tumble dryer come off.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, and the felt seal.
You may be able to replace the felt seal at this time, or you may have to buy a new one and install it.
I would also recommend that you do the following while you have gone this far.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Be sure to pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy later when you go to reinstall the belt and drum
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

SOURCE: Hoover 381/1 condenser tumble dryer empty water

Got a similar problem with an HNC172. The supplier said it is the water indicator sensor that is not working. He fixed it! It still stops!!! Clear lint from the trap in the door. Empty what little water there is in the tank, then make sure it has a good shove to get it back into place and the tube/catch is well joined back. Also take out the condenser unit above water tank, stick in the bath and put the shower hose through it to clear lint. Recommend getting a tea strainer over the plug hole or you block your drain as quite a bit comes out. It helped for a while, but it still has problems. Might be the thermostat for the heater? check the error codes. They flash a different number of times within 15 seconds to indicate which problem is happening.

SOURCE: Just moved into a house in Singapore with a Hoover

This is normally the sign that the electric motor start/run capacitor has gone faulty: the special motor start/run capacitor, usually around 4 to 10 uF / 450v, helps the motor during the stop/start sequences which require higher torques.

Hoover Tumble Dryer VHC 391t. Its starts and does a cycle stops to turn the other way and just stops. If you press the start button it just clicks.


The most common problem for this would be the motherboard of the system that's controlling the Hoover Tumble Dryer. You will have to either get it repaired by a professional or get a new dryer.

Tumble dryer overheating


Check and clean your lint filter. If problem persists, check the discharge of your dryer vent. A clogged dryer vents will cause abnormal heat build up in a dryer.

My dryer will shut off ten minutes into the any drying cycle and then won't let me turn it back on for another 10 minutes.


first clean filter, element could be putting out to much heat, and safty swich shuts it down, or it coud be a bad thermocouple, , lets hope its not the timer, if it does this on cool tumble, its ur timer, (dial switch)

Dryer runs then stops after short periods (5-10 mins)


THere maybe a thermal limit sensor gone bad. Keeps the dryer from over-heating. Located behind rear panel on most and mounted on the heat tube. Verify with volt/ohm meter if possible

Maytag atlantis gas dryer, will start, heat up but then no heat


Try running it with the vent disconnected and feel the air coming out of the dryer. It should have good flow. If it dries good, your pipe may be clogged.

If your dryer stops during its cycle, wait ten minutes and start dryer again. If dryer starts, then the motor was overheating.

Solution, Check for lint blockage around the motor and for possible overloading. If dryer repeatedly stops during its cycle, especially during consecutive loads, replace motor.

Good luck

take the top off. there should be a small relay board to the right just behind the fascia. the fault probably lies in that board - relay not holding in
