Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have had a hoover top loader washing machine,(model-hoover gemini A6516-010) for about 12 years now, and i ve had no problems with it, but recently after coming from about a months holiday ,I switched it on to get our family laundry washed up. but unfortunately the tub would not agitate ,i.e on the normal cycle.and the timer would not go thro its normal motion.so I turned the unit over to have a look and found the brake (locking pawl) was not disengaging from the drive mechanism, and u obviously must be knowing that this brake ,is infact activated by a coil which has to be energised by some switch, could be faulty. so can u pl . help me with this problem. besides also, just 2 note i ,manually moved the timer forward to pre wash rinse, ,this is where brake coil was energised allowing the drum to spin. so i was wondering if the timer is faulty and whether it should be changed.thanks Henry.

YEs the timer is ad and you should replace the timer. You can also just to double check take a volt meter and power on the nit and see what kind of volts you are getting

I have a Hoover washing machine, its a front loader, I don't have the exact model in front me at the moment. I recently moved house, and yesterday after re-plumbing my washing machine, I put the washing...


If water remains in the drum after the drain cycle, the unit will not go into the spin cycle. There may be a couple of reasons for your problem.
Make sure the drain hose is raised above the machine hose outlet to create a siphon effect. The drain hose needs to have a loop in it to work correctly. You can tie a string around the hose and hook it on the water valve creating a loop in the hose. Raise the loop of the drain hose so the top of the loop height is at the center of the washer drum.

If the appliance is 10 years old or more,it may make sense not to invest any money to fix it!

Happy to assist you,
