20 Most Recent Hoover HF712 Front Load Questions & Answers

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

May I suggest you read through these notes especially near the end on how to check that the pump is or is not actually running? I hope they help.

Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
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!) and held in by a round cover/knob.


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. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

I would not really recommend it as the fridge would be subject to vibration from the washer and the washer is not specified as part of a stackable system. That said it depends what you mean by a 'small fridge' and how much it weighs.

Baically, Hoover washing machine error code E16 means that there are problems with the insulation of the heater. this may lead to the shutdown of the circuit breaker and other random errors, but this is difficult to prove without replacing the heating element.
