Hoover AAA 160 Error 3

Having read all the solutions about clearing the filter and ensuring that the pipes are clear, I am still getting the error 3. The pipes have been removed and cleaned, both from drum to pump and from pump to waste. On a wash cycle all water is pumped out, but error 3 comes up after 3 mins and so the spin cycle will not start. Even emtied the pump completely of water through the filter access and used the machine on a spin cycle and still get error 3. Has any one any technical details or cct diagrams as to what triggers the error 3 condition? Many thanks in advance for any help given.

    Many Thanks for your assistance, I have cleaned out the pressure pot and ensured that the hose is clear.
    Even with no water in the machine and the filter has been emptied, I am still getting the error 3 just trying the spin cycle.
    After leaving the machine over night and then tryingthe spin cycle it worked, tried a rinse cycle with no washing and that works. tried a speedwash with no washing and error 3. Then tried a spin cycle, error 3 again

If you are certain that all pipes are clear, then you may wish to check the pressure pot & pressure switch ( & small hose joining the two as this could be telling lies to the program unit. If the machine is emptying but the switch fails to read the level correctly, it can cause the same sort of error problem. Pressure pots can fill with the "grey soap gunk" and switches pressure are a reletively common fault also. Good luck

I have a Haier HWD1600 washer dryer combo that I am getting an error 2 on. It will not drain the water out and I have not been able to clear it for the past two months


Its a common error,
Error message:Drain error, water can be not drained fully within the required drain time
Reason 1. Pump filter is blocked.
Solution 1. Please open and clean the pump filter. (Filter access door is on the bottom right, at floor level of the washing machine)
Step 1.Push a flat blade screwdriver into the slot on the filter cover and pull it open ,do not use excessive force.(Fig 1).
Step 2.Remove the rubber hose from its clip and stand a suitable container under it, remove the bung to drain the water (Fig 2-3)
Step 3.Replace the bung and fit it back into its clip (Fig 4-5).
Step 4. Unscrew the filter and rinse it under running water, replace it and close the flap(Fig 6-7-8).
Caution:
1. The filter must be in place during operation, ensure it is in place after cleaning to avoid leakage.
2.Place a container under the drain pump filter, to collect any excess water that may come out of the drain pump when the filter is removed.

Reason 2. Drain hose end is higher than 100cm above the floor level.
Solution 2. Please adjust the height of drain hose to 80-100cm above the floor.

Reason 3. Drain hose is blocked or twisted.
Solution 3. Please check and clean the drain hose for blockage.

Reason 4. Drain hose is too long, or water is back filling from waste water pipes.
Solution 4. Remove any extension to the original drain hose.
Ensure the highest part of the drain hose is nearest the washing machine.Check the waste water pipes in the building are clear of any obstructions and flow freely.

Ben, the simplest solution would be to unplug the machine from the wall socket, wait 5 minutes plug it back in and see if that clears the error code.

Hoover Interact 1600


This might sound silly, but try it. Run the washing machine through an entire cycle with nothing in it. Select the largest and longest cycle you can. Once this is done, is that error code still there? In some cases, this will clear it. This can be due to overfilling the soap and thereby triggering the sensors that are there to monitor pressure. Running it with no soap or clothes in it may clean this excess out of the machine. Another solution may be a faulty inlet valve allowing too much water into the tub to begin with...let me know what happens

TI-83 Plus Silver Edition problem


These instructions are from education.ti.org, and worked for me.

1) Take out one of the AAA batteries
2) Hold down the CLEAR button
3) Put the AAA battery back in while still holding down the CLEAR button
4) Let go of the CLEAR button and turn the calculator ON
5) Press CLEAR to get rid of the error message.

Then you should be good! All the applications on my calculator were still intact, so despite the error message, the RAM was never actually cleared.
