How to get to motor on hoover vhc691b?


Very rare a motor fails on a hoover drier normally its the capacitor that fails. you can hear the motor humming but the drum wont rotate to proof its the capacitor turn the machine on press start listen for the motor humming open the the door of drier turn the drum by hand fast then shut the door as fast has possible then the drum should start going around . then this proves its the capacitor fault you are doing the job of the capacitor giving the motor a start .

Our Hoover (3535d) dryer tumbler does not want to spin although you can hear the motor starting. The load does not appear to matter. There is no sign of belt slipping. Can the problem be due to the start...


If you hear the motor starting then it normally wouldn't be the start capacitor. It is when it doesn't start that you suspect the capacitor.

If your motor is turning and belt is NOT slipping then your drum should be turning! Those things do tell you that your electronic (control board and timer) are good, but you are wrong about either the motor or the belt!

Just moved into a house in Singapore with a Hoover D6786 dryer. It starts up and spins but repeatedly stops spinning after only 5-7 minutes. Clothes will not dry. What's up? Thanks for any help.


This is normally the sign that the electric motor start/run capacitor has gone faulty: the special motor start/run capacitor, usually around 4 to 10 uF / 450v, helps the motor during the stop/start sequences which require higher torques.

Dryer heats up but drum doesn't turn.


If the drum is very stiff to turn could be the drum bearings shot which would account for the broken belt, replace belt and it liable to break shortly after again. hover are known for there bad bearings and they cost a small fortune.

check it out have a look and see if there is nothing jaming the drum inside, i am certain your belt has gone and maybe down to the stiff drum making belt break, replace belt but bare in mind it may break again if the drum is too stiff.

choice is yours really. bearing kits cost more than 50 quid in general

Hoover Condensing dryer malfunction


Hi Mike,

The motor probably has experienced locked rotor current and fried the windings. Of course the capacitor could have shorted. If you can find it, look at the capacitor and if the can looks like it's lid is swollen or pooched out, then go for replacing the Capacitor. If you remove the motor and smell the case and it smells burned, you motor is shot. It does not have to lock down to be bad. The windings do not rotate in an AC motor.
