Question about Dryers

My noisy hoover tumble dryer...help please!

My Hoover nextra condenser dryer has been making loud rubbing/squeaking noises for some time now. We took the top off to investigate further but everything is hidden underneath the drum. How do we find out the problem and does this machine need totally dismantling to fix it!!Hoping you can help Jennifer
P.s it still works and have been using it but the noise is starting to get louder!

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.
