SOURCE: Bosch WTA 3100 Tumble Dryer ON/OFF switch

The on/off switch is combined with the door release switch in one item - part number 154145 (a little over £20) and my problem was the door interlock bit had failed. The following worked for me :
Plug out, remove top panel, and open door + look up at switch panel - you see 5 slots under the switch panel (the 2 outer ones are mostly covered by the main front panel). Start at either side and work across, using as wide-bladed a screwdriver as will fit across the slot width : put a wood block under blade as a support and lever bottom of panel towards front - each has a plastic pin behind pointing towards the rear, held by a spring clip. Each will pop clear and when all are unclipped you rotate the panel outwards from the bottom edge, taking the timer knob and its drive linkage with it. To get switch out I removed the door and the screws around the main front panel - one is hidden behind a cover plug below the access port (to gain access to bottom screws on main panel, lever the bottom panel outwards along its top edge).

SOURCE: The felt seal on my Hoover HNC175 tumble dryer come off.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, and the felt seal.
You may be able to replace the felt seal at this time, or you may have to buy a new one and install it.
I would also recommend that you do the following while you have gone this far.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Be sure to pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy later when you go to reinstall the belt and drum
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

SOURCE: Hoover 381/1 condenser tumble dryer empty water

Got a similar problem with an HNC172. The supplier said it is the water indicator sensor that is not working. He fixed it! It still stops!!! Clear lint from the trap in the door. Empty what little water there is in the tank, then make sure it has a good shove to get it back into place and the tube/catch is well joined back. Also take out the condenser unit above water tank, stick in the bath and put the shower hose through it to clear lint. Recommend getting a tea strainer over the plug hole or you block your drain as quite a bit comes out. It helped for a while, but it still has problems. Might be the thermostat for the heater? check the error codes. They flash a different number of times within 15 seconds to indicate which problem is happening.

SOURCE: hoover tumble dryer filter light staying on and

if you have cleaned your filter at the door and checked the outlet is not blocked either then it will most likely be the heater element on the back of the machine, it has three parts to it, 1 thermal switch,2 is some sort of magnetic type switch and 3rd is the element its self,

problem is its only sold as one unit, but very easy to replace.

Basically, you merely have to place it in the slot in a way that causes the belt to have to do an exaggerated "S" around the motor wheel, the tension wheel, then back to the drum...

Purchased one of these tumble dryers on 20th Oct 2011 from Currys, yesterday morning no power whatsoever.
Have refused repair or replacement after seeing your similar problems and also after finding this review that indicates that these tumble dryers dont like the cold.
As many people like us have them in the garage, I'm not interested in one that needs it's own radiator and blanket !!!! grrrr ..

The stop button will not stay and makes a buzzing


This sounds just like you have a bad door switch. You check it by taking the two wires off of it and taping them together. Then try the dryer. It should take off and run normally. If so, replace door switch. Good luck.

--Bad motor run windings
--bad motor switch
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)
