Question about Washing Machines
I have a Hoover HSWD 166. all the programmes run on it but no matter which programme i choose, it cuts out after about 30 seconds with the "slow spin" light flashing and the little triangle light on the time countdown is flashing too (they do 11 flashes then stop)! If i turn it off & back on to the same programme then it carries on from where it cut out but again, cuts out and the lights flash after about 30 seconds! I have checked the filter and taken the back panel off the machine but can't see anything wrong in there. i would be so greatful for any help or ideas you can give me! Thankyou.

Have you checked the pump filter, and or that the pump is actually working. if it spins o/k with no water in, then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump o/k, then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Hope this is of some help to you.

Hoover (Nextra series) washing machines
The 'Start' & 'Pause' LED's will flash together to indicate the error code. You have to count the flashes within each 15 second period to get that error code. The start and the pause LED's will flash together at 1Hz (i.e 1 flash per second) within that 15 second time frame, then will continue and show again within another 15secs and so on.
1 Flash = Interlock fault
2 Flashes = Fill time-out
3 flashes = Drain time-out
4 flashes = Overfill fault presure pipe blocked
5 flashes = NTC error
6 flashes = faulty control board
7 flashes = Motor jammed
8 flashes = Tacho fault
9 flashes = Motor triac on module board
10 flashes = Prog Selector or wiring fault

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I'm interested in how you manage to drain the water away- is it by the filter cover? If not may I suggest carrying out the following- if you have not done so already ;-0)
(If you have -sorry. This will not help)
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
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!) and held in by a round cover/knob.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
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. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

It could be anything but one of the most likely things is a faulty door switch. What were the circumstances leading up to the fail ? Have you checked the filter? Is there any water in the machine?
Try unplugging it and leave it off for 15 mins.
difficult without any more clues...
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.
