Hoover HDV6UK keeps tripping circuit breaker

There are only 2 things that it could be both are heat related: THe thermostat and thermal limiter OR the heating element. We can not rule out the motor though. Then you can get into the control boards. Maybe it is time.

Hoover hd condensing dreyer cuts out and water

Make sure that drain is free, that the dryer has adequate ventilation and that the lint has been cleaned from inside. Those are all reason.

Hoover dryer not turning over

kind of vague but it may be your belt is off, of course we can think the worst and say the motor is shot. Bottom line we need to open up the machine and do a little troubleshooting. Here is a website that can get you into the machine, if it is not the belt, post again and if I'm on here I will try to help Tim:

I have a Hoover tumble

Try hitting the reset button on the back side of the dryer.
Yank out your condenser and give it a good clean.

The heater is not working

Unplug the dryer and the first thing to do is check for the presence of 220 volts at the wall outlet. If you lost one leg of the 220 volts, it is possible for your dryer to run but there will not be any heat. Once you verified there is definitely 220 volts at the wall outlet, remove the rear cover. On the lower right hand side you will see a silver canister which contains the heating element. Remove the lower two wires directly from the heating element and check this for continuity. If it is good, on the left hand side of the same canister they often install a thermal safety which may have tripped. Do the same test as with the heating element. Remove the wires and test the thermal safety for continuity. If this is good, move to the blower housing on the left side of the exhaust vent and look for a white piece of plastic which has two wires on it. Remove these two wires and check this item for continuity.

Hoover Dryer Mod. HNC 271X-88 In


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Also, often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

When you press the on button nothing happens

There is a switch on the motor that replace the push to start in the circuit once it gets up to speed. Either it is not reaching speed or the switch has failed.
