There should be two rectangular holes about 2mm wide and 10-12mm long. There is a wall mount bracket [D470] which you install against the wall and then the hardest part is getting the dryer on the bracket.
Obviously when installing the bracket make sure that the wall and the screws can hold at least 30kgs.

I want to hang the dryer on the wall. Can I hang it upside so I can reach the controls?

No you can not hang it upside down without a re-design of the rear bulkhead. The drum rollers are on the bottm of the drum. If you hung it up side down the drum would drag on the top part of the chassis.

Hello, i have a hoover dryer, model 5030D, secondhand, it is just been purchased my us. we put on our first load on and the machine stopped within 15minutes. we noticed then that the machine was...

Hi, if I remember correctly this model originally came with 2 faceplates so the controls can still be easily accessed, when the dryer was installed upside down on a wall. Most dryers can be run upside down, or even on their side as I done in the past with my Hoover 5030D, so the problem would lie elsewhere.

Is it possible to mount the unit upside down on wall brackets, and of course, the dryer still operates satisfactorily? As there does not appear to have pressed openings on the rear panel for bracket...

Hi Don.

All appliances must be installed, used, and also transported and stored with the top side up.

If the dryer is turned upside down the weight of the drum, motor and other parts will not be sustained anymore by the rollers and other structural parts located inside the appliance.
The dryer will start, but it will break down after a short usage.

There are also other safety issues involved.

The dryer cannot be installed upside down.

Hoover 5010D drier died on it thermostat ?

If it is a thermostat there is nothing wrong with jumpering the supply across to the out feed to make sure that the rest of the heating side is OK before you buy a new stat.

You only need to run the machine for a minute or so to acertain if it all works

How do I remove the pulley from the motor of my Hoover 5010D dryer to put onto a new motor?

Take a big tough wrench and put on shaft next to blower wheel. Now place a big tough wrench on the slotted place on the blower wheel. A place for a wrench is located on the blower wheel where the motor shaft goes into the wheel. Now holding one, try turning the other. Make sure you don't have one that has reverse threads. There are some models that do have them. They drive me crazy trying to determine which it is. They are normally real tight. About 1/3rd of the time I end up having to bust the blower to get it off. Although try not to if you don't have to because this is a part that seems to never go bad.
Please rate solution

I just bought a second hand westinghouse dryer 6kg LD605E, the sticker on the machine is upside down and the seller told me that the machine can be used either way. it this true? thanks

The LD605 series of driers is wall mountable and stackable
When wall mounting, the drier is hung 'upside down' with the knobs at the bottom to allow access, by people less than 8 feet tall.
The original package came with wall mounting bracke, and replacement sticker for the control panel with the text upside down so that it would be right way up when the dryer was hung.
If you arent going to hang the dryer, examine one small corner of the label area, the original label may be underneath and exposed by removing the wall hanging label.

The current model in the LD605 series still comes with wall mounting kit
