    Noisy problems with my Hoover Candy Tumble dryer.

    Dear Sir,

    I have watched couple of your videos, They are very good and informative.

    My tumble dryer starts smoothly for first few minutes but then after couple of minutes it becomes noisy. I can’t figure out whether the noise is coming from the back or front. I can’t distinguish between different types of noises mentioned (e.g., rumbling, thumping, knocking, rattling, etc.). When I touched the back cover behind the drum centre (behind bearing position) it was hot, Is that normal? As suggested in your video, I have managed to open the tumble dryer successfully and checked the drum bearing. The bearing looks round (not oval shaped as shown in your video). I have also looked at pulley wheels on which drum rests. They look ok. The pulley wheels supporting the belt are also fairly tight. So, I am bit lost on the cause of the noise. Could you please advise on the cause of the noise.

    Regards,
    S. Kumar
