SOURCE: Hoover Ultracare 1600 - Dryer not working

Check the duct work see if it is clogged up with lint.  Everything you read tells you to clean it out, but how many of us do it?  I just had the same problem with my duet dryer and when I went under the house to check, the duct was clogged up with lint and works like a charm now.

SOURCE: Hoover Vision 1600 drum not spinning?

I have similar problem with same model unit, found brushes on motor worn to point copper contact is hitting and scoreing commutator. Easy checked, ensure power completely disconnected, lie machine on side and gently rotate drum looking in side the motor. The commutator is what looks like a circular block of copper segments which will rotate with the drum and should be evenly worn and coated with carbon from the brushes. If you see a clean copper area, usually in the center, then the brushes are worn down below workable levels. Suggest replacing should resolve problem.

I had this problem. I alternated the hot and cold water valves (changing over the wiring) and then hot tap then dribbled instead of the cold. Replacement part i believe is around $35AU

In a previous house, we had both a hot water feed and a cold water feed. My new house only has cold water feed, can i still use this washing machine?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In a word- YES!

You will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end screws into the cold water supply and the hot and cold washer pipes screw into the double end. The washer is fooled into thinking it has hot and cold! When it expects hot, it opens its hot valve but instead gets the cold water and has to heat it up. It will therefore take longer for the machine to do the washing. When it wants cold for rinses, it opens its cold valve and gets the same water! Simple ;-0)
Good luck,

Does the wma76 hotpoint need a hot water feed? Is a cold water feed enough?


Hi from retired Englishman in France (it's 21:29!),

If your washer has 2 pipes for feeding water then one is for hot and the other is for cold naturally.
All washing machines have a water heating element in them- in case any hot water supply is not hot enough for its wash.
If you only have a cold tap you will need to purchase a 'Y' connector. This screws onto the cold tap supply (single end) and the hot and cold feed pipes connected to the washer screw onto the other two ends. The machine will now be fooled into thinking it has two separate feeds!
The machine opens the valve for the 'hot' water supply (which of course is cold) and the heats it up to the required temperature for the wash cycle. Afterwards, when the machine requires cold water for rinsing, it opens up the 'cold' supply (which is the same supply as for the hot water!) and is happy.

Hope this answers your question.

Can the washing machine run on cold water feed only and if so is there a special connection or do we just connect the cold feed only


you can use a cold feed on washes below 50 degrees
if you need to connect a feed to the hot water inlet on the machine you can buy a y shaped connector to join both pipes together from the machine and then connect the one remaining connection to the water supply valve

Have been given Hoover HC6-110 (fitted with hot


This machine does not have a heater. You could use a Y connector or just cap off the hot and only use the cold settings.

Hoover ultracare 1300 large load stopping mid cycle at a variety of different points and having to be manually stopped and started again at another point to complete the wash


Checkout your filter at the bottom of the machine, undo the bottom flap below the door, front. Plug off the wall mains socket. Be prepared for a lot of water so keep plastic bag, towels ready. Unscrew the plug you see to make water flow into bag; when all water has been disposed off, clean this filter & inside, refit carefully.

Hoover HW160m - double inlet but only 1 tap at new build.


Hello,

You can use the cold water only with no issues at all. The only thing you will have to do is buy a cap to block off the hot water inlet on the back of the machine otherwise the cold water will flow out through it onto your floor etc.

And yes, your machine has an element built in which will heat the water for you!

Regards,
Adrian.

Our hoover ultra care 1300 large load washing machine spin fault


The most common cause of machines stopping mid cycle is not draining. Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at the bottom.
If this is not the case please post back for further assistance.
