SOURCE: No draining on washing machine

I am not an expert on hoover - mainly hotpoint...but..

To empty your machine of water reset the programmer to Final spin. the machine should empty normally.

On hotpoint if you have a fast flashing light its most likely to be 1 of 2 things.

1. The belt from the motor has broken. (price for belt is less than 20 pounds.)

2. The brushes in the motor have worn down too much to make the drum turn. Look underneath the washing machine to see if black power (Carbon) is deposited under the motor.
(Price for set of brushes is less than 20 pounds)

Labour should be no more than half an hour by anyone decent.

You may have some articles that made their way into the pump housing. Alot of times I see dimes get stuck in the ports of the pump, remove and check out thoroly and also check hoses coming to pump for little son of a gun articles that like to hide.

SOURCE: hoover six express wont spin

all hoover machines spin in a clockwise direction the fact that you say the machine only washes in an anti-clockwise direction is a good indication that the reversing switches have failed (these provide the switching to drive the motor in either direction) if your machine uses a mechanical type programme timer this has failed if it it is a processor controlled machine it will be the motor drive card will need to be replaced either way not a diy task

SOURCE: Hi, good evening. I have a zanussi iz12 washing

Hi there

I have an IZ12 jetsystem which sometimes works and other times it starts and then clicks and stops just before the water starts to run in. I usually turn it off and try it again a few hours later and then it starts to work again. Sometimes it is the next day before it will work again. Would anyone know the problem?

My Hoover BOSS 2315l started having issues not finishing the spin cycle, now it just continues to turn off every few min, so I need to keep restarting it. Does anyone know whats wrong please.


Symptomatic of a blocked drain pipe, blocked filter, or a failed drain pump, drain pump with a broken impeller.

Remove the filter cover and check for obstructions. Attach a hose pipe to the drain hose, wrap it with a towel, hold the two hoses over a bucket and get someone to turn the hose on until you can't hold the pipes any longer, usually about 15 seconds. This clears obstructions in the pipe into the machine drum and filter. After checking the filter and behind it, put it on for a rinse and spin.

If the pump has failed, you can drain the machine by lowering the drain hose into a bucket or floor drain.

There are videos online on how to change out a faulty drain pump.

Hswf 147 hoover washing machine wont spin


Not spinning at all can sometimes be caused by a blocked filter or drain pipe. Does your machine spin if you turn the dial to the spin only setting? Ours has developed a fault whereby it won't spin at the end of a normal cycle, but if I turn the dial to 'off' then to 'spin only', it will spin.

Hoover AM1100 Washing machine, wont final spin.


The noise, is it a grinding noisy like worn bearings?

put the washer on drain only - is the pump working ok, take the filter out to see if it is turning ok, does that make a strange noise?

If the pump is fine, its back to that noise, it could be be a faulty tacho on the motor ( regulates the spin speed) or motor bearings - has the motor spindle a lot of play on it?
Let me know how you get on and good look!

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.
