Hoover condenser dryer plug fuse blew

We have a Hoover condenser dryer that is literally days past the 1yr warranty. It was working fine yesterday then this morning it wouldn't turn on at all. Zero power. When investigated we found the fuse in the plug blown. This was replaced as and plugged into a different socket where the plug emitted a very audible electrical crackling sound (yet still no power on machine.socket isn't at fault, other appliances working fine in it) so was obviously unplugged immediately. The crackling sound was definitely coming from the plug and not the machine itself. The machine remained "off" nothing on the display, no sound, no power to it. Is this likely to be something fixable or is it deader than a dodo?

Crackling certainly doesn't sound good. How many days past warranty.

Contact them, " 2 weeks ago my washing machine stopped working, I was going on a business trip, and couldn't do anything about it. I checked the fuse and it had blown. I replaced the fuse and it still doesn't work. When the machine failed it was in warranty, please come and fix".

If not, the most likely issue for 'crackling' would be the control board or the motor, leaning slightly to the control board as it has no power visible to it. A failed motor would have power to the board, but nothing happening.

Have had two hoover vhv 680c tumble dryers from the coop electrical store. They have worked for two days exactly then when you go to use it again there is no power to the machine (replacement for each...

Purchased one of these tumble dryers on 20th Oct 2011 from Currys, yesterday morning no power whatsoever.
Have refused repair or replacement after seeing your similar problems and also after finding this review that indicates that these tumble dryers dont like the cold.
As many people like us have them in the garage, I'm not interested in one that needs it's own radiator and blanket !!!! grrrr ..

The stop button will not stay and makes a buzzing

This sounds just like you have a bad door switch. You check it by taking the two wires off of it and taping them together. Then try the dryer. It should take off and run normally. If so, replace door switch. Good luck.

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.

Dryer blowing cold

Check the following to address this issue.


Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.


Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Please rate and have a great day:)

There is no heat

Disconnect power and access your dryer fuses. Check and test your fuses for "continuity". Most likely, a white thermal fuse. Can possibly be your ignitor or heat element as well. Is your dryer gas or electric?
