Hoover HC6 120M front loading washer

Drum doesn't turn when machine is switched on. Water gets into machine OK, and appears to pump out when put on the spin programme. Drive belt from motor to drum is fine, and drum turns manually from the back when the back cover is taken off.

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.

Watch the motor when it is supposed to be running. If nothing, measure for voltage across the brushes and across the motor power terminals. Make sure the motor will turn freely by hand. If power is present, there may be an open wire to either the field winding or one of the brushes.

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.

Zanussi zwf 1221 will not turn drum, the end light flashes the water goes into the drum and drains out when a program is selected but the drum will not turn at all. You can turn it by hand and it moves...


you need to check the pressure switch inside the washing machine there a small hose connected with the pressure switch to sense that the level of water inside the drum is ok if this hose blocked the machine will not run

Washer won't agitate or spin


Hello there and welcome to fixya
there are several things that you will need to check first ok please verrify the following
It doesn't pump or spin
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
It pumps, but doesn't spin
If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:
The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Hi, My Hoover 600MB top loading washing machine is approx 8 years old. Recently it has occassionally not fully spun out - clothes still wet at end of cycle. Now it also often doesn't agitate - just...


Have a look for coins etc stuck in the drain pump or the tub outlet hoses especially where they fit onto the tub. If a coin or other foreign material blocks the water flow when draining , these machines wont spin properly.

The water does not get pumped out of the machine


The filter is to be found at the bottom front left of washer behind a removeable plastic trim, if you can see a screw in the filter cover, undo this, and turn filter anticlockwise to remove.
If no filter at front, then remove rear panel of washer, and remove large black hose fastened to drum, check for blockage here, and check the pump at the same time.

Problem sorted, motor is brushless and tested ok. Traced problem to statup capacitor, no circuit across terminals, will be relatively cheap fix

Water not draing away and machine is not spinning


Empty your machine manually by lowering the drain hose into a bowl or bucket. Then remove the kick plate and check the filter for blockages.Before replacing try the machine on drain to see if the pump is running, if problem persists there may be a blockage in the pipe from the drum to the pump.
