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 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.

Not Pumping water to reservoir


Fixed this problem by removing the back and side panel and simply clearing a build up of fluff from the channel that feeds the water from the condensor unit to the reservoir. To do this I had to open the plastic unit that houses the pump by simply unclicking the top section and clear this and also clear the entire base section. Dryer now not leaking and drying much quicker.

Hoover six tumble dryer runs for about 15 minutes then trips the electrics, condenser has been cleaned and water container is always emptied


usual cause is water being thrown by the fan onto the heater. after this has happened, remove cover over heater and see if water is present.
the water is there because the water path from condensor box to pump housing is blocked with lint
