Take top off and check the suppressor capacitor - the round thing the incoming mains is connected to

Posted on Oct 21, 2008

  • douglas smith Oct 22, 2008

    take top off. suppressor capacitor will be where the mains is connected. usually there are 5 wires connected to it - 2 are incoming mains, 2 are mains going into the machine and the 5th is earth. if it is faulty, often the damage is obvious - a bulge in it or sometimes completely disintegrated.the capacitor is round, about 11/2 to 2 inces diameter and a few inches long.

    a way of testing it is to bypass it altogether ie connect incoming mains to outgoing mains and see if machine starts. of course disconnect when you do this or you will get a shock

Washing machine leaking underneath


might simply be a small hole in the outlet drainage hose, this would explain why your machine leaks during the final spin, there is more pressure from the water inside the hose during the final spin than when the machine is draining. hope this helps.

We have a Hoover select 1500 washing machine. It still washes and rinses ok, but doesn't then move onto the spin cycle. But I can manually set the dial to spin and restart it. It then spins fine. I assume...


Could be but also could be rinse water valve not operating due to faulty solonoid. it does a final rinse / softner before spinning if valve faulty then no spin advance....

Hoover 600MB Top Loader, Won't Spin


I have the same problem. Just started missing the spin cycles and now I need to find which part to replace.
So far I think it could be: Aged contacts in the Timer, a faulty spin/no spin switch, or something to do with the brake/release mechanisms etc. ..I do know that the problem is electrical because everytime the motor starts the spin works fine; therefore eliminating in my opinion, the mechanical gearbox bits as a cause.

My old Hoover top loader Washer is noisy & doesn't spin out properly - how can I fix it?


Sounds like the switch which cuts the machine off when the load is unbalanced. My guess is that: This switch is being triggered too easily The springs holding the bowl up are either stretched or one is broken; The machine may not be level.
