Question about Washing Machines
Machine powers on, door locks but doesn't fill with water, (cold fill only machine.) The machine is not filling with water. Been through the troubleshooting checklist on the Hoover website as below: 'If the water is on, turn the water off, remove the inlet pipe from the rear of the machine, clean the filter and remove the water flow control restrictors behind the filter at the inlet. See the picture. If the adjustments fail to solve the problem call for service. Cleaned the water filter and the inlet. No joy. Any ideas
Really sounds like the inlet servos arent working there and might need of replacement

this is 1 of 2 solutions 2 this problem the first thing to check is the vacuum system or it is a split in the pressure switch hose

Hi Gary,It sounds to me that you have a blockage within the pressure systemas this is a classic sign. If you take the top off the machine you will see a round switch with a few wires going to it.This is the pressure switch. at the bottom of this switch is a thin pipe,normally black or clear. there is a small spring clip holding this pipe to the switch, If you remove this pipe and gently blow down it you will probably find it is blocked. You will then need to follow this pipe to the bottom of your machine. At the bottom of the machine where this pipe is fitted you will see there is a chamber and it is this chamber likly to be blocked.Some times you may clear this with a small piece of wire by removing the small pipe and poke wire through, but best way is to see how this chamber is removed and remove it for cleaning.Ensure machine is off at mains. this chamber fills with water and causes air pressure within the switch at the top of machine, which in turn tells programe when machine is full and also when empty. If this fails then machine will not turn off water supply as long as it is on. there fore when you reconnect parts ensure they are tight and clips back in place. Good luck and hope this works. Failing this working you may need to call an engineer to check switch and possible fault on board.
