It is usually located on the duct inside the unit. You will have to take off either the front or back cover and follow the exhaust duct back to the burner. I would remove the front cover first as this is usually where the majority of wires are located. Make sure you unplug the unit first and while you have the cover off check as much of the duct work as possible. If you are adventurous enough you might want to remove some of the duct work and see if you have lint build up causing the thermal device to trip. If there is not then you might want to replace it. You should be able to find one online any of the appliance parts places should have one.

E 15 is an error message. Turn the machine off from the socket. Unplug it. Change the cycle to a different start point. It may have a worn bearing because of overweight and resists the weighthe bearing because of damage. The weight is important to regular functions.

i saw your question and never worked on a hoover dryer so i checked it out go here to see video
i have to tell you on all the dryers i've ever worked on they never had a cap in them,only washers,on a dryer that isn't a condenser dryer if you get the dreaded buzzing sound and start it like you did,open the door,hold in the door switch and spin the drum with your other hand while someone else pushes in the start button and it would start it would be the motor,i've seen a condenser dryer and the problem always was with the filter,people that had just bought one didn't know you had to clean out the filter box,never took one apart,i saw that nobody answered you so i hope this video helps you out and i learned that condenser dryers have a cap in them.

Let me ask you one question. Are either of you having any problems as far as performance with your dryers? If not, do you still have your owner's manual that came with the dryer? There is a possibility that an extra was inside, all this time; and worked its way into the tumbler. I have known on occasion where there is a factory defect causing the wear to happen much more quickly so an extra part, in this instance an extra belt; would be given inside the owner's manual or the dryer cabinet itself. I'd check my manual first. Then, if I wasn't having any problems I wouldn't look for any. Neither of you mentioned any problems with the way the dryer worked or sounded. On the one with 2 wks. over warranty, I would at least contact the place where it was purchased if you ARE having a problem. If they are reputatable, Hoover is good about honoring their warranties within a few days. The store may take care of it, if they want your business again. Good luck to both of you. It'll be OK. Get back with me if there is a problem you didn't mention, OK? Keep smiling & have a Good One.

Have you checked the hose at the back is not blocked or jammed in any way as this will cause those symptoms?
