Question about Hoover Washing Machines
SOURCE: Fabric Softner drawer
The detergent dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water enterence and distribution to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle)are done by a lever's movment (part of the dispenser). The lever movment is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By openning upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Dissconect the power cable from the machine before moving to next tests !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movment). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test by a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!

try turning down your cold water pressure. some times the pressure it is so great that the water hits the soap dispense and spill over. this is a common problem with front loaders??

If this is a front loader see that u use only washing powder for FRONT LOADING MACHINES. Also possible your detergent drawer is clogged with old dry detergent. Pull out the drawer and clean with tooth brush. Things shd be fine.

I had the same problem. My husband checked the carbon brushes attached to the motor and ran the machine on spin. The brushes were sparking so he assumed they were worn and replaced them and hey presto machine works fine now. The brushes cost 23.99 and were just bought from a local shop but can be bought online cheaper. Hope this helps solve your problem. Essex
