Henry, its going to be 1 of 2 things. Check inside your drum, see if the vent in the rear has burning or discoloration around it. If it does, it sounds as if your vent is restricted causing the unit to overheat, so clean/fix/replace the venting and your support pulleys will need to be repalce ie flat spots from overheat. If there is no scoarching marks and you know its not the vent or heat issue, the drum seam may have parted causing the thump as every revolution is made.

SOURCE: ge dryer makes grinding noise when drum is turning

If youve made sure that its not a roller thats dry or a belt idler pulley that dry,than yes its the motor,and oiling that will only make it worse.

SOURCE: tumble dryer makes whine noise but doesnt spin

Sounds like the drive belt has gone,and the noise you can hear is the motor going round.
The red glow you can see, will be the heater element glowing..
To check the belt, remove top cover, and you will be able to see if the belt is on or not, if you can see it round the drum, try to lift it up, if it has not broken,then you will not be able to remove it, and that means the motor or drum could be siezed, try to turn the drum by hand, it should be fairly stiff to turn, but not that stiff that you cannot turn it at all.

Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

I have a hoover dryer model 3530d. I have to open it and try to turn the drum over and over before it will start to turn. What is the problem. Is it worth fixing or should i just buy a new one


the belt maybe stretched or the motor, you will need to open dryer and look at the motor and belt, idler arm, drum roller and glides, this website should assist you, Tim:

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

Our hoover 5015d has power going to it, the lights come on and it makes a click noise when you press the start button but nothing. is it maybe the little switch behind the button on the door. you need to...


There is a switch that cuts out the motor if the door is open. Usually this switch fails and will not let the motor start. it is not too hard to replace and costs around $14.00.

Dryer heats up but drum doesn't turn.


If the drum is very stiff to turn could be the drum bearings shot which would account for the broken belt, replace belt and it liable to break shortly after again. hover are known for there bad bearings and they cost a small fortune.

check it out have a look and see if there is nothing jaming the drum inside, i am certain your belt has gone and maybe down to the stiff drum making belt break, replace belt but bare in mind it may break again if the drum is too stiff.

choice is yours really. bearing kits cost more than 50 quid in general
