20 Most Recent Hoover UltraCare HC6 150M Front Load Washer Questions & Answers


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time and water can remain in the drum and on the garments.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

hello, i take it you've checked the fuse in the plug if ok then check all the wire connections if ok then it's possible that the glass type fuse in the washer power supply may have blown. make sure you use the same rated fuse thanks

I had this problem with a washer a few months ago. I believe it has something to do with the timer. Not too sure about this washer, if knobs are electric or not.. If it makes a clicking noise where the knob panel is it probably can be fixed fairly easily.

Also another problem that happens is the door switch. These two problems are the main ones for washers that continue to work but have problems in the cycle.

Sounds like a brush prob to me.
Remove rear panel and remove motor to check carbs.
Replace if there is less than 2or 3mm left.
If it still trips after replacing carbs, then motor faulty.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.

Hi Frank,

Went through this a couple of time.  Two things, at different times.  First is it draining?  If it is, then check the motot brushes.  They cost about £25 and take twenty minutes to replace.  Mine failed at three years.  

If it's not draining, then their is probably a blockage at the drain pump.  Anything bigger than twenty pence coin could do it.  Again, easy to do, just do it outside near a drain.

Suggestion: First plug off the wall. Remove the back panel of the machine. Check to see it the thin tube going from the top control panel to the exit side below the machine is block free. To check disconnect this from the top and blow into it. It should not blocked, refit. This is the water level control. Secondly check out your pump.
