Question about Hoover H120M Front Load Washer / Dryer

Hoover H120M Washing Machine No fabric softner and dial clicking round

When I put my machine on it often allows the dial to click round, sometimes back to the position that I put it on but sometimes onto a different wash cycle. At the rinse stage when the fabric softner should be taken into the machine, the water runs through the tray where the cleaner comes from (sometimes, not always?), which means the softner is left in the drawer at the end of the wash. At the end of the cycle, the machine does not always spin very well and the clothes are too wet. The machine is 5 years old and i would like to fix it rather than replace it. Can you give me some advice please? Thank you.

Always check your carbon brushes which are situated at your motor covered in a plastic covering must be at least 8ml long these start at 1inch in length may not be giving enough contact to your motor for the timer to click into action m8 but if these are ok then it will be more than likely your timer which is faulty with it not doing the water inlet valves properly

My washing machine (hoover VHF 710 front load) does not take up fabric softner from the compartment. thanks

Could have something clogging the port. You're 110% sure you're following the directions EXACTLY as you're supposed to?

Reason I ask is because it can sometimes look as though it should go in one spot, only to read the instructions and find that it actually goes in another.

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
