Hoover tumble dryer

Hi there

 

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.

 

Any ideas?

 

Many thanks

    It appears to be the switch behind the start button that is faulty.  My partner switched this one with another and it worked again.

    Thanks for your help.

I think you may have a bad relay on the motor, where power is re-applied after the push start is released

Hoover tumble dryer tripping switch

If it's working for a while then shutting off, sounds like thermal overload.
I'd recommend replacing the heating element depending on the age of the dryer.
It could also be:
  1. The cable or plug
  2. The interference suppressor
  3. The main drum motor or fan motor
  4. The control panel
  5. The motor starter capacitor
  6. An issue with the wiring, e.g. the wires are worn or melted

Candy heat pump tumble dryer not collecting water and taking forever to dry!

Condenser dryers are simple in operation. They use a heater element to force hot air to heat the clothes and turn the water to steam. That steam is turned back into water by drawing cold air into the machine and over the heat exchanger unit and into the drum. The problems with them is that they are slow to dry.

Your best bet is to call for service, and the problem is likely the sensor probe or one of the thermal cut out.

Hoover Tumble Dryer VHC 391t. Its starts and does a cycle stops to turn the other way and just stops. If you press the start button it just clicks.

The most common problem for this would be the motherboard of the system that's controlling the Hoover Tumble Dryer. You will have to either get it repaired by a professional or get a new dryer.

I have a Hoover tumble drier model HDC6 type TCMo1 and it is NOT getting hot HELP

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

Hoover Maxi 6 TC50 Tumble Dryer making squealing noise

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.

My Hoover TC650 condensor dryer has a fault. When turned on it makes a noise (buzz) but the drum does not revolve. If I turn it by hand and then quickly close the door and press the button it will...

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.

Tumble dryer

take the top off. there should be a small relay board to the right just behind the fascia. the fault probably lies in that board - relay not holding in
