20 Most Recent Hoover Nextra HNL 3166 Z Front Load Washer Questions & Answers


A possible fault that is consistent with your symptoms is that the water level sensing is confused. This is usually a column of water in a plastic tube bearing on a diaphragm switch which operates when the weight of water is sufficient to trip it.

The water level is adjusted by a dial which alters the pre-loading on the switch, meaning it needs a bigger or lesser column of water to trip it. If there is a leak in the tube, that would account for the water level trying to cycle. Any water underneath the machine? If so it is a good indicator that is the right track. If not it still may be that fault, but the leaking water is just not making it to the floor.

It is normal that the program suspends for filling, and it will not give rise to an error. Also normal is flow through the detergent drawer whenever there is a fill cycle. What is not normal is the repeated fill cycles.

Also investigate the actual switch associated with the level sensing. It might have bad contacts.

Please post what you eventually find the fault to be. Helps everyone, especially those trying to diagnose at a distance.

How old? warranty? Owner's manual, Troubleshooting may help. Contact Manufacturers Customer service. If you are nice, they usually are helpful.
It's possible something is caught on the edge of the drum and overloading the motor. Usually, the motor has an overload switch which will cause it to shut down to prevent burn out.

I would suggest that the drum is out of alignment because the main bearings have failed, or the drum shaft has collapsed due nto corrosion.
Spin the drum by hand, and listen for any noise, there should not be any, and see if the drum rotates centrally in relation to the outer drum

Black oil comes from a leak in the washer transmission seal.

Hoover Nextra... | Answered on Dec 06, 2014


It's a safety feature that doesn't allow the machine to spin when there's still water in the tub. The drain pump has probably failed and you would need to replace it (there are some good places online where you can buy appliances spare parts). Try to set your machine on a 'Drain' cycle and see if the pump works.
