Re-Hoover nextra8 hnc380 Tumble dryer

The dryer is just over a year old and when it is drying it makes a grinding(vibrating) noise during the cycle as if there is a dry bearing or something.I believe my wife called hoover out about 6 month ago and was told that the bearing didnt have enough grease on it,but we dont know what he greased,what he used or how he got into it.Can you advise any help welcome.Regards john

    I have the same problem the dryer squeals most of the time it is on. We have tried taking the back off but this has not helped the problem. As our machine is also just over a year old is this a problem with them all?

    I to have the grinding dry bearing sound, I have stopped it in the short term by spraying WD40 onto the pulley belt wheel mechanism through the slots in the rear panel. The problem is gaining access to the pulley as the rear panel cannot be removed.

    I have the same problem! First time round the engineer came and lubricated it and it stopped for about a year but has started again! I think I will do the Wd40 trick!

    I had my machine from new and within 9 months the bearing noise started. The engineer informed me that on production there were loads of machines where the bearings had not been greased when they should have been. A year later and mine has started whining/grinding/ like a dry feel, I knw when he greased the bearings it solved the problem. But now a year later I have the nosie back. I just called Hoover and they said although my machine is guaranteed for a further 2 years for parts I have to pay the labout cost which is £119.00! That is ridiculous! I can buy a new machine for that! I;m going to try and take the back off and grease the bearings or spray WD40 everywhere and just hope for the best!

    I have the same problem with a Hoover Nextra HNC 180 (8kg) condenser dryer, after 5 mins of use a loud grinding noise. I pulled the back off and vacumed and then applied WD40 but didnt stop the problem for long. I contacted Hoover but they were un-helpful, resigned to having to buy another dryer (not hoover).

Preblem. hoover nextra8 dryer, it squeels but only in one direction. Solved problem with WD40. Push the tube that came wth WD40 into the nozel of WD40 . Open dryer door, isert the tube into the catch opening. point it towards the drum bearing surface apply some WD40 at the same time turn the drum by hand. Don't expect instant results, give it a hour so .

Take the back off then put it back on again .its out off line and catching the white air wheel . that should stop it

E15 error code on hoover tumble dryer


Controls
  • The control unit on the tumble dryer will vary among different makes and models. The main purpose of the controls is to allow the user to select the drying cycle. You can choose the time and temperature setting on most units, while others allow custom settings such as moisture sensors and end-of-cycle alert signals. The controls may include a dial or a touch panel and LED screen display. Some tumble dryers allow you to independently select the appropriate time for the load you are drying and separate programs for temperature.
Motor
  • The motor inside the tumble dryer spins the basket to allow the clothes to tumble while being dried. The tumbling action allows the air to pass through the clothing to dry them faster. Heating laundry that is stagnant will likely dry the clothing on the outside while leaving damp clothing inside the pile. The constant motion, along with the heat and steam created by heating the clothing, reduces wrinkles. The motor also powers the fan that delivers the heated air to the basket of laundry. The heater can be an electrical element or gas powered.

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

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.
