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.

Hoover Vacuums | Answered on Jan 05, 2018

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.

It doesn't take long to destroy a belt.

The hose between your solutions tank and the sprayer is probably clogged. If you can hear the sprayer noise, and get no spray, you will have to get some solvent and use a syringe to clean the line. Remember each time you use it, you should pass two tanks of fresh water through it to clean it so it won't be clogged for your next use.

Check for a clog , the vacuum will shut off after a few mins or so.

Hello, Kathy -

If you have not yet checked your owner's manual; the Troubleshooting section, I suggest you do.

If you do not have the manual, you can download a PDF (Adobe Reader) version here:

This is the link to the Troubleshooting section in the manual:

I hope you made sure the dirty water tank was empty and that the filter screen is clean.

I had the same problem with a hoover windtunnel 6200 - u5477-900. I removed the flexible hose from top of the plastic tube running vertically along the right side of the back of the vacuum. When I used a flashlight to look into the plastic tube, I could see a clog at the bottom, where the flexible hose curved frontwards towards the brushes. I then removed the 2 screws holding the vertical plastic tube to the vacuum. When I disconnected the plastic tube from the flexible hose at the bottom, I found a clog of dirt and dog hair. After removing the clog and reassembling, the clean / dirty light now moves back and forth from red to green.
