This has already been asked somewhere. There are no English words in use that have no vowel sounds.

What sound do you associate with the "y" in "shy"?

For that matter, what sound do you associate with the "y" in "myth" or "hymn"?

The only word that I know of (American Heritage Dictionary now recognizes it) without a written vowel is "nth". Don't forget, Anon, that y sometimes serves as a vowel, not just a demi-vowel.

Strictly speaking onomatopoeia are probably not considered words; if they were, playing Scrabble would be pure hell—imagine someone making up all sorts of noises citing animal XYZ.
