Question about Hoover Dryers
The last couple of days, our Hoover Maxi Tumble Dryer has started making loud squealing noises when tumbling in one direction, but not the other.
Not sure if its related but 3 weeks ago when we moved house, the Tumble Dryer was inadvertently tipped on its side when water was still in the condenser and i had to take it apart to let all the water drain out the back and dry it out for a couple of days, after which it worked fine.
Now its squealing and i wonder if the water has dislodged the grease in the bearing or motor or something. I'm fairly handy with a spanner, but never taken apart a tumble dryer before. Anything i can do to fix the squealing or is the dryer heading for the pearly gates?
Any help/advice gratefully received.
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.

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...
The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...
