Hi

 

please can someone advise, my hoover dryer as suddenly stopped working, I will pop it on and it will run for about 5 minutes then stop and 2 symbols will appear. I am not too sure what they mean?

 

I will attach a photo - it’s the 2 logos on the far right

Hi. The top one looks like a water symbol. Is it taking in water? Or is it filling with water but the water is running down the drain and not filling the drum?

A washing machine will abort the cycle and display error codes if it hasn’t filled with the right amount of water within a set period of time. 
 

Any error symbols should be listed in the instruction manual although not all will have proper explanations

The upper symbol relates to the water tank on this condenser dryer, it indicates the tank (erroneously?) needs to be emptied even when it’s actually empty

The lower symbol relates to the lint filter, the machine is indicating the the air flow through the filter is low and the filters needs cleaning, note this is the door mesh filter, the cassette and any other filter in the dryer

With other brands of condenser dryer I’ve worked on these two symptoms together with a short run and stop mean that there is a significant lint buildup inside the machine, typically the dryer will not have been cleaned internally of lint in more than a couple of years especially if it’s had heavy use

In the case of the water tank system, wet lint builds up on the metal prongs of the water sensor in a sump and the dryer thinks it is full of water even when it’s actually empty

In the case of the filter system, wet lint clings to the metal surfaces of the condenser and reduces drying efficiency and airflow

I’d recommend a through clean inside the machine, wet lint prevents the dryer working properly (dry lint is a fire hazard), you’ll need to take the covers off the dryer, ideally use compressed air outside the house

Short term you can try using a shower to clean the condenser cassette 

Hope this helps
