My HNL 7166 hoover washing machine nexus won't drain

I washed a rag rug which was heavier when wet than anticipated and also shed lots of bits of rug. Now my machine won't drain. Any ideas as to how I can drain it. We've opened the inspection hole at the front but water pours out and it is in an upstairs bathroom at the moment as we are living on a building site. Also why won't it drain - could something be lodged in it somewhere? PLease help!

SOURCE: hoover model hnl 7166 door remains locked at end

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
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 this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Machine won't drain


You will find that the pump is blocked, you need to attempt to remove as much of the water as possible and as rugs are not the best thing to wash in a washing machine they tend to shed a lot and get the bits stuck in the pump. You may have to completely remove the pump from the machine in order to completely clean it.

HNL 3146 WILL NOT EMPTY AT END OF WASH


Hi davebmail,

It could likely mean the Drain pump may be clogged. Please follow my below tip on the fix:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER...

If this does not help, the drain pump may be faulty.

Kind Regards

My hoover washing machine wont spin and is full of water. model number is hnl 9146-z


It's a safety feature that doesn't allow the machine to spin when there's still water in the tub. The drain pump has probably failed and you would need to replace it (there are some good places online where you can buy appliances spare parts). Try to set your machine on a 'Drain' cycle and see if the pump works.
