Question about Hoover HDC6 Electric Dryer
The dryier will heat up, but the drum will not turn? the belt is fine. could the motor brushes be worn? how do i get access, cos the motor seems inaccessable. thanks jon w bolton
The motor will most likely be ok, its the capacitor on the motor that normally blows,( the white/grey cylinder with 2/4 wires coming off it, about 3 inches long bolted to the motor its self. can be purchased separtely in eletronic spares shops. all u need is the (uF) number on the original part.

Hi big jon, the comment posted by d-mac could be true. I was told that the tell tell sign was that the capacitor casing will look distorted or blown (by heat) in my case it looked fine but must admit i have not had it tested. I concluded as my motor was red hot it was buggered! If youv'e still not got the machine apart let me know and i will see if i can remember how i did it and let you know! Hoover build these things well and unlike some others (hotpoint) they weld up the cases as opposed to screwing them together thats why its a git to get to the motor but we can't have it all your own way. I have found a cheaper motor at £75 so its looking more promising for a repair - have fun
