I have a hoover nextra optima HNL 6166 that is not draining, it is full with water and clothes, I had checked the hoose and filter and they are clear.

Hello Sussana, remove from power supply and water hose / remove washing machine so your able to remove the drain hose then lower the drain hose to it's lowest point over a washing bowl or better still if you can get it to the kitchen door to drain off outside by just lowering the hose lower than the machine, once empty remove. remove the rear cover then you should see a small plastic bottle that's attach to the drum at the bottom remove the assembly from the drum and check that it's not blocked with fluff or any other debris also check the hole that it came from for any blockage in side ECT. there is a long from this bottle long thin going into a flat plastic plate type dish near the top of the machine this is a pressure switch that registers were the water level is make sure the that all the assembly is clear of any obstruction you can gently suck and blow this unit and you should hear an audible clicking to say it is working, once done reassemble and put back into position, and reconnect every thing, hopefully you found a blockage and that was the problem if not then sorry it's your pump that's failed, it's best to remove this at the same time as doing the above and check it out to see if nothing is jamming the pump impeller, you will be very surprised at time what can stop it a small button / hairgrip /string / ear buds even the odd coin seem to find their way there. Best off luck.AR

LG WD12020D Inverter Direct Drive 7.5kg front loader. Has never had visible water level in the drum. I have even stopped the machine, turned off the power, waited for the door to unlock, pushed the wet...

No water that high. But you may have an extra water button that allows you to add slightly more water to each wash load. Water should be just above bottom of inside drum in the back of the drum as it rotates

Error number 2 appears on Hoover AAA whisper 1400 washing machine - any help? When it appears which is becoming more regular that it use to be I usually end up putting the washing through a quick spin,...

I downloaded the manual from Hoover website. Error number 2 relates to the washing machine not filling up with enough water. Check the water supply and correct angle of the pipe.

My hoover washing machine wont spin. I have tested the motor and this is fine. What else could it be?

If you have checked condition of carbon brushes in motor and they are ok.Check the valve at the back of drum(turn of and disconnect power supply) this valve is situ at the bottom of rear of drum. it may look like a small plastic bottle with a rubber pipe that goes up to the top of machine. undo clip and pull it out carefully, use a pipe cleaner to clean out inside of drum and wash and rinse out valve. Replace in order of dismantling. only a small job. One tip if you can is to tip machine backwards draining out any water and gunge from back of drum after cleaning out. Good luck, and let me know how you get on.

How to clean the inside of the machine

Go to the store and buy a bottle of CLR. Run a few cycles of it (without the clothes in there, of course!). Make sure you run a few cycles of just straight water before you attempt to wash clothes. That should do it. I've also heard of people using powdered lemonade to clean the inside of dishwashers, too. Maybe try the powdered lemonade first if you're squeamish about damaging something.
