Hi, I have a Hoover HDV6UK Tumble dryer which fails to continue operating once the on/off switch on the machine has been switched on. I have bought 2 new swtiches but still the machine does not stay on...


There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor goingbad...

HDV6UK...clothes are warm but not drying!! help

Vent going away from the dryer is stopped up full of lint or the vent tubing is collapsed causing the hot wet air to remain in your dryer.

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.

Drum often need manual turn before it starts to turn

Tumble dryers dont have brush motors they are started by a capacator which will be on or around the motor.
It is about the size of a pepper pot with wiring to it.
These are cheap to buy and if the drum turns after you give it a push then this is the culprit.
Hope this helps & thankyou for using Fixya.

Hoover tumble dryer

I think you may have a bad relay on the motor, where power is re-applied after the push start is released
