Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Hi, I am having problems with my HDV6 hoover dryer. It only works for about 15 minutes (sometimes less) then turns itself off like it is overheating. I then try turn it back on straight away but it doesnt want to turn back on til 5 or 10 minutes later (maybe until it's cooled down) wonder if you could advise me what the fault could be and what part I may need to change. Thankyou

Hoover hdv6 won't dry clothes. When switched on just makes a ticking over sound but drum won't turn. Filter care light comes on but thus has been emptied. Help.

Did you try unplugging and then waiting a minute or two then plugging it back in? If this didn't work try different drying cycles. Have you recently had a power outage while the dryer was turned on? If so when the power came back on it may have fried chips or boards for drying cycles.If all these were not present or did not work call a service tech recommended by Angie in your area

We have a Hoover D6486 dryer that is starting & turning but with no heat.Any suggestions?


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Hoover U5780-900 Windtunnel a month 1/2 old just started stopping when it is running and wont turn back on for a few hours why?

The motor has a thermal protection sensor on it. So your motor may be going bad, it is pulling to many amps for some reason, could be a clog somewhere or a bad bearing in the motor.

I need to put a new drive belt on my hoover hdv6 tumble dryer, how do i do this?

usually two belts one from drive motor and the other a big one to turn the drum. Take the back access panel off and loosen the tension on the motor for the first one ... for the drum belt you have to pop the top of the dryer open (use something like a paint stir stick and a hammer on each front top corner of the dryer to pop open the clips. nothing metal or you will chip the enamel paint)

Kenmore dryer turns itself off after 10-15 minutes of drying

If it turns itself off, it could be an overheated motor. If that's the case, then a new dryer will be the smarter investment.

I get about 2 of these complaints a week.
Good luck to you and please feel free to email me if you have any questions or if you need suggestions on a brand.

Thank you for your inquiry :)

--Bad motor run windings

These are two possibilities.How old is the dryer. may not be worth it. get the model# from the dryer & price a motor. (new motor cures both of these possibilities)
