Hoover tumble dryer error codes and spare partsThis set of fault codes for the Hoover VHV series of tumble dryer models including both normally vented and condenser tumble dryers and may relate to any other Candy Hoover produced tumble dryer models.

Before you start any investigation of the fault or even remove the lid or back panel of your Hoover tumble dryer please read and fully understand this article in full and pay particular attention to the safety and information notices at the bottom of this page as they contain extremely important information!

  Hoover VHV Tumble Dryer Spares

We have purposely not listed any Hoover tumble dryer spares in this article as it covers multiple models from a vast range with numerous changes made to the spare parts used and subsequent replacement spare parts. They will also often look the same or similar yet be different or, look totally different yet be completely compatible as they've been altered.

Please, don't guess or assume as spares can be altered on a production run with the same model number having several different alternative components used.

We would rather take the time to check for you and get it right.

  Hoover Tumble Dryer Fault Codes

These fault codes are written for washing machine repairers and not for the general public by Hoover and they assume a certain level of competence on the part of the user in diagnostic routines. We have added some notes to try to assist you in determining the nature of the fault you have but, you will still need to investigate each failure on its own merits. For more help and advice on fault finding on a tumble dryer please refer to our basic fault finding guide from this link before you begin.

On the lower models in this range there is no digital display so you will get a binary code using the built in LEDs or neon lights that give indications and options. These can vary from model to model but the fault or error code will be displayed as a series of flashes, simply count the number of flashes between the pause and that relates to the error codes below. For exsample, one flash is E1, 3 flashes is E3 and so on.

  More Hoover Tumble Dryer Help, Advice And Guidance

Should you need more help and guidance please use the links from this article as most of them will help you to understand your Hoover tumble dryer a lot better and probably very much help you in diagnosing the fault you have. Of course there are many other articles on the site that will also help you do this.

In addition you can post in our forums after registering but please do pay heed to the information below before doing so and read the guides, they are there to help you.

You must understand certain things before you begin or attempt any repairs on your own and we want to make these points very, very clear to anyone that decides to investigate one of these or any other tumble dryers:

  • We are not responsible for your safety, you are and by using this guide you accept that and accept that any damage that you may cause and work undertaken is entirely at your own risk.
  • We will advise the common causes of the fault codes but we cannot guarantee that any parts or work recommended will resolve the issue. It is entirely your responsibility to diagnose your particular problem and resolve it.
  • We are not responsible for you buying spares that do not resolve the problem, this is down to your own diagnosis not ours.
  • No warranty is inferred, implied or given.

You also have to know that these Hoover tumble dryer fault or error codes are not a "magic bullet", they will not tell you what the problem is, they will only offer you an indication of where the problem lies and they are no substitute for good old fashioned diagnostic skills. You can find out more about what fault codes actually tell you in this article. So please be well aware that, even with this new found knowledge you will still have to actually be capable of investigating and diagnosing the problem and this means adhering to basic appliance safety for working on them.

Please do note that manufacturers can and do change fault codes without notice and we cannot guarantee that these error codes will apply to your particular model as all codes apply to a wide range of appliances and not normally any one specific model.

Hoover DYC8913B
I have a Hoover DYC8913B which has been totally reliable until it suddenly starting cutting off a few minutes into it\'s cycle & flashing the error code E15, when I open the door steam pours out.....
its always been well maintained & in a small but well ventilated room, any help would be appreciated....

Sounds like it is overheating but why I could not say.

You would really need to ask in the forums for help with that, the techs won\'t see your comments here.
