Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washing machine works on occasion

Hoover hsp 15 i seem to be having a filter or drainage problem. the machine wont finish a cycle and stops when theres still water in the cylinder then it wont let me open because its half full. If i pull the machine out and blow air down the waste pipe it will then drain.
i have cleaned the filter at the front but it only seems to work for a cycle then it blocks up again...there are lights that blink on the front the the first light that has a p above it and the super wash light directly below it...Any help would be great thanks.

If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here’s the information you need to check the drain pump:

Symptom: PUMP IS RUNNING, BUT NOT DRAINING PROPERLY.

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT – DO NOT FORGET!).
9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console – DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). “C00” will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.


NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.

Sounds like your timer is not working correctly. I would suggest replacing it, as there isn't a way to repurchase timers.

Neff washing machine stops half way through the cycle and the high water level light comes on


possible hose blockage or filter blockage. when half way through the cycle the machine evacuates the water to replace for rince cycle or to start spin cycle if the way is blocked the water cant go out so the machine can not finish the cycle, and usually the door will stay locked so not to flood, when the water is still in the machine. remove and check the drainage hose for kinks and blockage. also remove and check the filter under the machine. (be careful as this will let out all the water so have some towels or bucket ready to catch the water. once the filter is clean replace and restart your machine.
I hope this was useful.

Hoover Nextra HNF2127 washing machine. Lights flashing at finish


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The start and pre-wash usually flash due to a clogged drain hose or the water pump. You’ll need to drain the water out of the base and also check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine). If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Machine stops with SE code


That code (5E, not SE) means the drainage is clogged. The code appears after 15 minutes of trying to drain the tube (not sure that´s the word, may be turbine, barrel...). check the lateral filter (a big plastic twist-off cap) for any solid that may be clogging the drainage

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
