Question about Hoover H120M Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

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

Can I get a manual for Kunft 410/01?

You should have a troubleshooting section in your operating manual that will help you know why it may not be running. All machines are programmed NOT to operate if doors are not closed completely. You may not have the selector completely dialed onto a wash cycle, sometimes I dial mine into the off section just before the actual wash cycle begins. Could be your breaker has tripped that feeds the current to your washer. Go to your breaker box and see if the washer has a breaker all of its own and flip it back and forth to be sure it is on the ON position! Sometimes different areas of the washer dials do quit working and must be repaired. Try more than one area on the dial...permanent press, casual, normal.

W123 holding some water and dial keeps spinning around checked the filter all clear

may be a blockage in the sump hose or pump feed hose or the pump itself may be faulty. the dial will click round to tell you there is a fault. to reset turn the dial onto every DOT and turn on for 10 secs then off and onto the next dot it will flash for a couple of seconds to confirm.

Hot point wmlt80, dail clicking and turning, cycle wont start,

Yes, I work for GE what you need to do is to resent the appliance. Something should had happened with the computer of the washer. Just unplugged the machine for 40 seconds. You can unplugged or turn off the circuit breaker for 40 second and plugged back in. Select a normal cycle and let it run.

We had similar fault.
Rectified ours by switching off at the mains and put dial to one of the dots. Switched on and it reset.
Good luck

Indesit wia111 stuck on spin cycle

OK - Try this:-

1. Position the dial on number 0 (off) and then unplug from the wall.
2. After at least 24 hours plug back in - hopefully the thing should have reset.
3. This is really important. Select a wool wash program (No 9) and allow it to complete the entire wash until the door lock light starts flashing to say it's finished.
4. Turn the dial back round to position 0 and all LEDs should go out.

That's it - The control board is reset and all should be well

In order to prevent re-occurance, try to avoid canceling programs mid-cycle. It's also a good idea to switch the dial to number 0 and switch the machine off at the wall when not in use if at all possible.

Please let me know if this works for you :)

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.
