Question about Hoover AAA160 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Drum not turning

NOT SPINNING Same problem with old Hoover front loader (electra dual spin 1000F), too old for database but in good condition. Slight electrical burn smell last load, didn't spin out properly, now drum not turning at all though switching mech' seems to be trying to do it's thing. Checked power to motor, ok Almost definitely motor problem, could be brushes and that would be consistent with age. Don't know if motor is brush type, am about to disassemble to find out.

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

Electra 535 Dual Spin - I`m trying to discover what the capacity of this machine is, the manual supplied with the machine gives all spec.s apart from its size. ie is it 6, 6.5 or 7. kilos...


From what I remember, the 535 is a 5.5 kg machine. The best way to load any front loader is to have the tub full but not packed. Its the safest. As for weight capacity, due to Australian Standards testing, machines have to state what load they will handle with a certain volume of water and power usage, but any front loader, load it up but dont pack the clothes in and you will have the best efficiency. By the way, the clothes are measured dry weight..

My Hoover Front loader is leaking water from underneath the machine. It is NOT the taps..I believe it could be the rubber seal just inside the door of the machine, as it has a hole in it. Could this be the...


If the hole goes right through the seal it could be the cause, but I am inclined to think it is a vent hole for the seal and that a leaking seal will come out on the front panel. Remove the machine back and check the pump seals and the hoses, it is more likely those at that age. Take care, there may be live terminals and connectors inside the back of the machine when the power is on.

My washing machine will not spin...


As you don't give the model, I can just give a generic reply.
Most front loaders are belt driven, and some top loaders are.
I think the main thing to look at first is the connection of the drive motor to the tub. If this is a belt - replace it and check the tensioner.
If it is a top loader using a gearbox, then the motor is likely to need either brushes or a new capacitor. Both items should be checked - so -
Belt ok? - Y= go to next question / N = Replace belt
Brushes ok Y= go to next question / N =Replace
Replace Motor Run Capacitor.

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question####
