Flashing stop light

My Hoover Nextra Optima HNL 7166 will not start. it has a flashing red STOP light. I think it's something to do with the door sensor, but not sure how to slove it.

Hoover nextra washing machine door wont lock / cycle start


sounds like the door lock mechanism. if this cannot signal it has engaged, to the board, no other function will work (you don't want the washer going with the door open, trust me :) )

My hoover nextra optima model 7166 cut out now there is no power...It appears the mains cable has some burn marks but the fuse is OK any ideas


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

As a guess I would suggest that the mains cable has a break in it, just where the burn marks are, possibly due to flexing back and forth.

REMOVE THE PLUG FROM THE SOCKET.
If it was me I would cut into the cable at the burn marks, strip it back to expose the break, cut back the wires and I would carry out a safe but temporary join- but you are not me!!! You will need to have the cable replaced, sorry ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My Hoover Nextra 6 has its stop light flashing and the Start button will not kick off any programme?


It could be anything but one of the most likely things is a faulty door switch. What were the circumstances leading up to the fail ? Have you checked the filter? Is there any water in the machine?
Try unplugging it and leave it off for 15 mins.
difficult without any more clues...
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

How do you remove the filter for a Hoover washing machine Optima Nextra Model HNL 6166?


I included a link on Youtube to my Nextra where I show how I clean the filter (watch it from 08:55 onwords). Just remove the kick strip and unscrew (philips screwdriver needed) the little screw on the filter itself, then turn it anti-clockwise but while you're doing this make sure you insert the kick strip underneath to gather the residual water. Repeat this operation 3 o 4 times until the sump is totally empty, make sure you don't let the kick strip fill up too much otherwise you'll be spilling water all over the place, so just turn the filter clockwise everytime you want to stop the trickle of water. It's not too complicated and it won't be too messy if you follow these instructions carefully. Good luck ;-)
