Question about Hoover HTC243 Top Load Washer
My old Hoover top loader Washer ("Commodore") has recently become very noisy & often stops during spin cycle & doesn't spin out properly - how can I fix it? It used to often get unbalanced & stop during the spin cycle if I put a small or medium load in (especially if there was a towel in that stayed on just one half of the drum). But it was usually easily remedied by making sure the towel, or whatever, was evenly around the drum. Now it stops about 10 times during a wash cycle & sometimes the clothes are not spum out properly. Often I have to take half of the clothes out (especially the wet heavy towels) in order to get it to spin. I have also taken to giving the drum a good shake in order to get it to spin since sometimes if I take all the clothes out & try to get it to spin with no clothes in, it doesn't always start spinning until given a good shake! I hope that someone can give me a better way to fix this problem! ;-)
Sounds like the switch which cuts the machine off when the load is unbalanced. My guess is that: This switch is being triggered too easily The springs holding the bowl up are either stretched or one is broken; The machine may not be level.
