Question about Hoover PE235 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Light comes on but machine doesn't start

Hi, I hope someone can help us. We have a Hoover PE235 which has just thrown a dicky fit (16 months old). It hasn't made any strange noises or smells but now when we press the on button, the light comes on but it doesn't fill with water or try to start. I've checked the water pipes and they both work (used a bucket), and the outflow pipe isn't kinked. Nothing is stuck in the door. I undid the filter to check if it was blocked which it wasn't. The only thing is that we had 4-5 off/on power cuts lasting 10 seconds last week, BUT the washer wasn't on at the time. Could this have done something? If anyone has advice, I'd appreciate knowledge on whether the fix is something I can do myself rather than pay a plumber. Many thanks in advance, CAHJ

Re: Light comes on but machine doesn't start

Well lets see, you have one of two or both, the water level switch or the timer, if the machine dont recive a good level of water(depend on the seting) it dosent start washing, but if the water level switch dont receive curent from the timer, it wont work, so you gona need a tech any way....good luck

PE235 would not spin or empty. Now it wont cycle either

Check the filter at the bottom of the machine ,right hand side behind the plastic cover along the bottom. You may find a blockage in there.

Sounds like you have a blockage in the filter or the motor brushes have worn down.

Hoover washing machine front loader, has power, have reprogrammed, but still won't start. Door lock light won't come on. For the last few washes before it quit altogether, the time lapse between pressing...

Hi brennanjodi
I think your door interlock needs replacing. Turn off the power undo the front of the door gasket and that will get you to the lock mechanism. They're about £20 to replace.

Washing machine

i had the problem of my brand new washing machine not taking the conditioner and the customer service advisor rightly guessed that i was using concentrated liquid and advised me to dilute it with warm water then put it in the drawer because sometimes the liquid is too thick for the machine to take.try this!!!!! regarding the powder why not put it directly in the machine or buy tablets and do the same with those

Contact Hoover, they should be able to supply you with a new dial for not a lot of money. Warranty won't apply as it wasn't their fault. Good luck.

Timer just spins round

yes it is the timer,i had the same thing happened to me on a hoover,i was told that the fault was when you turn the timer to a programme to do this slowly and gently and if you go pass a programme not to turn it back but to go forward again until you get to the right programme..hope this helps.all the a new timer may cost about £80 to £100.
