Re: Hoover Premier 706

I have the same washer and the paint started to flake from the bottom of the bowl. Rust under the baked enamel made it lift. I peeled the loose paint then applied rust converter and a zinc paint. This patch is still ok after 12 months but my wife is complaining about paint flakes and rust on some clothes. In my opinion, the only way to remove the agitator is to undo the nuts retaining the shaft from the inside. I guess I will find patches of rust under the agitator and depending on how big and deep they are will determine if I replace the machine or patch the rust.

Water doesn't shut off

Hi There
I have looked up your problem that you are having. Read this and let me know how it goes. Hope this gets you in the right direction.
If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve Water-level switch Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.\
Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

I've got a hoover premier 705 4.0kg washer.It will wash and drain,but it won't spin dry..I've checked the pump and hoses (not blocked).And you can't take the back OFF this one,you have to lay it down and...

Hey, have you looked at the belt going from the motor to the drum? I am currently trying to make ours start spinning again too, and the problem is that the belt keeps dropping off, I am just trying to find out the size of the belt so I can go buy a new one. If this is your problem, it should be reasonably cheap to fix, just look up an (electrical) appliance spares shop in the yellow pages. I think the size I am looking for is a Z550 or Z600.

Inserted flexible piece of thin wire into hose connectioin on outside of bowl and vigoursly wriggled it around - replaced hose and bingo water fills and shuts off and machine operates correctly. Seems like the hose connection was blocked, not a very scientific repair method but seems to have worked. Thanks.

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.
