I've had my Hoover condenser tumble dryer for about 18 months and now when I try to press the start button the motor starts, but then stops as soon as I release the button. The button pops out straight away but if you keep your finger on the button the motor continues to work.

Have you fixed this problem? I also have a Hoover condenser dryer, only a few months old, and has started to make a squeal/whistle. I'm thinking it might be the front fan needing some WD40, OR too much water vapour around the belt that moves the drum causing the sounds. If it's the fan, lubricating the shaft and its components should fix the problem, if a wet fan then I'd think maybe fully cleaning the condenser filter, reservoir ect will fix the problem. The problem seems to go away though "mostly" 15 or so minutes after you start the dryer, so that makes me think ones it gets warm something is expanding to allow more "give" so maybe the belt.
i saw your question and never worked on a hoover dryer so i checked it out go here to see video https://www.how-to-repair.com/help/hoover-candy-tumble-dryer-drum-not-turning-and-belt-ok-faulty-capacitor/
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.
