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.

its more likely to be the heater element the temp sensor is fitted to this, remove the rear of the unit and at the bottom of the back of the drum there is a nut and either side there are 2 wires remove them and undo the nuts first nut holds the earth second nut remove but not all the way, un clip the connector for the thermostat, with all wires out of the way now push on the nut as to push into the washer and then pull on the 2 parts were the wires were it will be stiff to move. when it comes out wipe around the hole and clean it before fitting new element. fitting the element in side there is a metal plate the element has to fit into this, best way to fit it right is to make the element end at an angel when fitting. when its fitted it should be flush, tighten the nut until its a nice snug fit with no movement. then refit all wires and earth wire and nut. check everything is done and looks the same as it was when you started. you are now done. put back on and washer ready to use.

I had a similar problem and not sure whether my solution would help you.It was to do with the position of the waste pipe.It should raised about 2ft. ,looped before discharged into the washing machine tee.when the discharge hose is lying on the floor there's a possibility that the water is filling up and going straight out.By raising it you are letting it fill up and presumably triggering the water level sensor.Hope this helps.
