Cleaning washing machine filter

After a wash cycle, the clothes in my Hoover washing machine (HNL 6126) have a grey gooey substance on them. I think the filter needs to be cleaned, but I don't know where it is, or how to take it out! Can you help me please? Cathy

There is no filter on this machine. The gray gooey substance is sludge (dirt) build up inside the tub. This can be caused from using too much detergent or a detergent that is not HE (high efficiency).
You can try running an empty cycle using the hottest water available with products such as "washer fresh", "affresh" or a cup of bleach to remove the build up.
Remember to use a HE detergent and you only need about 2 tablespoons per regular load.
Good luck!

After a load of washing the clothes are left with black deposits of plastic like substance on them.


Sure all pockets were empty before the clothes went in?
Normally there can't come any plastic in the inside of a washing machine.

Hi davebmail,

It could likely mean the Drain pump may be clogged. Please follow my below tip on the fix:

If this does not help, the drain pump may be faulty.

Hi,My daughters washing machine (Hoover Nextra HNL 842) fails to empty after washing cycle.(error code 3). I intend to check the pump and float switch.I can access the pump through the bottom of the...


You should have a drain filter. They do become clogged and need to be cleaned out. If the draine filter is clogged you will immediately know it upon removal and inspection. If this is the culprit, be sure to show your daughter how to access it, remove and clean it and then to reinstall it. This can be quite frequent (8 to 12 months) depending on her environment, like allot of pet hair and things like that. Let me know if this is the culprit. By the way, you are going to have to bail as much water out of the drum as posible unless your model has an easy water shut off just prior to the filter. Otherwise, all the water left in the drum will run out of the filter assembly when you remove it. With any luck the filter is the culprit and not the pump.

My hoover washing machine wont spin and is full of water. model number is hnl 9146-z


It's a safety feature that doesn't allow the machine to spin when there's still water in the tub. The drain pump has probably failed and you would need to replace it (there are some good places online where you can buy appliances spare parts). Try to set your machine on a 'Drain' cycle and see if the pump works.

Hello davidsonrepl,

I was waiting with someone with more experience to post back on your issue. I haven't experienced this issue it but I would not rule out a transmission seal failure causing your oily grey substance in the wash tub. If you want to investigate further you can get the Service Manual from here

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1655507-found_service_manual_neptune_top_load

take a look at page 38 and on and see if you feel OK with a tear down to the transmission.
