DV80T tumble drier - heat pump noise?

Just got a new drier and the instructions say wait an hour then run a Time Dry for 20 minutes (you can't, 30 is the min allowed - no proof reading of the manual?).

Anyway, the drier starts fine and makes the usual noises driers make but after about 2 minutes it gets noisy and a new rhythmic drone starts.  Is this the heat pump or condenser and if so do they always make this sound?

My "home office" shares the space with the drier and there is no way I could work for long with this sound drilling into my skull!

Note that this is just the "installation" Time Dry and there are no clothes in the drier so it is definitely not overloaded.  It is also very level, free of any other objects etc and the sound is clearly "something starts up after 2 minutes".

Suggestions?  Unless this drier can be quieted it will be going back as unfit for the purpose!
