You will most likely have a faulty capacitor when you turn you tumble dryer on and you can hear a distinctive humming noise coming from the motor but the drum is not turning.  This is very easy to test. All you have to do is take the top lid of and with the palm of your hand give the drum a gentle push and it should start turning. This is because the capacitor is actually a kick stater for the motor and by doing so you just did the capacitors job, thus confirming it is faulty.

    Thanks a lot for these videos, really helpful and meant I could fix my condenser tumble dryer for £6 instead of £100+.

    Just watched some of your videos online which were very helpful so bought you a pint or two.

    I have a Hoover Vision HD tumble dryer , Model VHC 180 –80 and the Filter Care warning light comes on after a few seconds. I have defluffed everything that can be defluffed including the condenser but the light keeps coming on. After watching one of your videos I did try spinning the drum by hand with the power on and the thing worked fine. Does this mean it is definitely the capacitor or is there something else that should be checked first? The Filter Care light does not come on when the drum is spinning.
