Question about Hoover AI130 Front Load Washer
I think I might have been a bit dozy with my Hoover AL130. I'd always assumed that the 6kg load button on the front panel served the same purpose as the 'half load' button on my old washing machine. My daughter, son in law and their new baby are living with us temporarily and daughter has just chuckled at me and pointed out that it says 6kg, which is the max load of the machine. It seems pretty obvious, but can another owner confirm that the button should be pressed if you want to do a full load, and that the default mode is for a half load? If that's so, I think it's crazy, but I'll learn to live with it. Our clothes have always come out clean, so I guess our wash loads haven't been the maximum weight or bulk, but really, what sort of family does mostly small wash loads? There are five adults and a baby living in this house at the moment and the washing machine gets no peace at all! Having read about some of the problems others have experienced with this model, I'm just praying it won't let us down now! TIA, Avril
I have found a manual that you can save to your pc, it can be found at http://www.bigben.lv/Manufacturer_User_Manuals/Washing%20Machines/Domestic/Hoover/05651106%20AAA140.pdf the solution to the 6 kg buton is as follows : This option can only be utilised for cotton programmes. Hoover has designed a special wash boost system specially for 6kg loads - by selecting the 6 kg option button, the volume of water within the selected wash cycle and the length of time of the programme is increased to improve the wash performance for the bigger load.

For a full load within 6kgs you dont do anything, just let it go thru the cycles. But when your load is half - you press the half load button. Good luck.
