A scratching noise

My hotpoint nll113eyowo dryer makes a scraching noise when it is running, like the ones you hear when your brakes are old. Also there is some black rubber debris coming out from the center of the back of the dryer.

One, or both drum idler wheels has failed, the noise is the drum shaving rubber of the now stationary wheel.
Belts and Idlers are a standard item that fit many dryers, and your local parts guy has them on the shelf.
Replace both idlers and the belt at the same time, the other wheel and belt will fail soon cause of the extra load, and they are both as old as the first one, and you dont want to pull the dryer apart twice.

Just taking my best shot with the info....I would check the drum rollers and belt, either could leave black rubber powder as they wear.

PC Moniter with scratch

You can't get the scratch out, since it's embedded there by metal. you can patch it up with clear tape or use glare reduction monitor screen.

My dryer is making a loud squeaking noise when it

All dryers have to have a way of allowing the tumbler (that's the thing you put the clothes in) to turn freely, not all of them are the same tho,some use bearings, some use slides,others use rollers. Over time these rollers will need to be oiled,the slides will get thin and start metal to metal contact causing a noise, The rear bearings will then start to make their way to china and cause the tumbler to rub into the heating element and OUCH! These things will cause the motor to prematurely DIE! Its best to examine the dryers, rollers, and slides when you first hear the noise, but who does?

Dryer doesn't want to run- makes grinding noise

its sounds like a worn bearing problem.with the m/c switch off ,turn drum by hand and see if it is hard to do so.if you get a gritty feeling in your hands or hear a grinding noise,then that is probably the bearing.

My hotpoint vtd20 tumble dryer will not start. I was using it then when I put a second load in and pressed start - nothing happened. The power light is on but no tumbling!

If you can hear the motor running but no tumble action then belt has come off.
Make sure the door is shut properly..
If it gets hot at the back, then you are difinately getting power to everything.
If you can hear a slight buzzing noise, then the motor is failing to start, probably due to a faulty start capacitor.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 - Grinding Noise From Drum

This sounds like the min bearings have gone, open the door and see if there is any play up and down on the drum. if so its the bearing if not it could be something that has fallen from a pocket and got stuck between the metal clothes drum and the oute drum casing. a take apart job i am afraid for both issues.
