No its not your belt it sounds like you programmer is on its way out but if i was you check your pump down at the bottom of the machine take the bottom plinth off the plastic that runs along the bottom of the machine once off on the right hand side you will see your pump you will need to undo the black screw and get your self a towel and a small and big bowl there will be a lot of water so when you have took the screw out start turning the pump cap very slowly and when you have filled the small bowl close it and keep repeating it till all water is gone then take it right out if its stuck then pull it clean it out and put back together don't for get to turn your machine off be for doing any thing ok hope i have helped if after you have done the pump and the machine still do the same thing then its programmer ok

SOURCE: my hoover soft wave maxi 1600 that stops on spin

Hi

Two things can cause this issue...first when the washer is unable to drain completely it won't spin, to solve this you can take off the bottom front panel and then clean the drain pump assembly. If the water is draining fine then the issue can be with the door lock assembly and should be replaced. If the door lock sends signal to the control that the door is not closed the washer won't spin. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry if I have answered this already- it's my age ;-0)

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter- so many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
(If these actions have not cured the problem, it could be the control board OR the main motor. Motors will show weaknesses when commanded to spin.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hoover Optima 1400 A+aa


if your Hoover washing machine is giving program problems,before you call a repair man, if the program knob can be pulled off, revealing contacts, get yourself a can of servisol contact spray, and spray and leave a few minutes, than wipe with clean soft cloth, you might save yourself money, unlike me, it cost me 120euros for 5 minutes of the guys time, and I had the Servisol in my workshop.

Hoover 1400 AAA washing machine tripping house fuse


Possible that the control panel is short and so is tripping the fuse. Remove the connection to the panel and check if there is short , also remove the motor and check and this can confirm the case.

The belt keeps on slipping off causing the brushes to stop


Over time the belt stretches and gets to big to stay put all of the time. Get a new Hoover belt and install it. That will solve your problem
