Question about Hoover Nextra HNF 3167 Top Load Washer

Open Question

Hoover 750lb,8 year old. one year ago this washing machine on occasion stopped aggitating and spinning intermittently on the wash and spin cycle.the 14.uf capacitor was dodgy so i replaced with a 15uf as that was all i could get my hands on.shortly after this the machine washes, aggitates, spins all the time but it aggitates in one diraction only (causing all the clothes to wrap around the fins) also ther is a knock in the motor in the spin cycle,about 3times a second.it seems the motor stops and starts (jerky) causing the noise ? i definatly want to fix this machine. i am also looking at a machine from new could you recomend any or tell if a fishpaykeel gw712 is a good choice. cheers sam.

SOURCE: Hoover Vision 1600 drum not spinning?

I have similar problem with same model unit, found brushes on motor worn to point copper contact is hitting and scoreing commutator. Easy checked, ensure power completely disconnected, lie machine on side and gently rotate drum looking in side the motor. The commutator is what looks like a circular block of copper segments which will rotate with the drum and should be evenly worn and coated with carbon from the brushes. If you see a clean copper area, usually in the center, then the brushes are worn down below workable levels. Suggest replacing should resolve problem.

The most common cause of machines stopping mid cycle is not draining. Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at the bottom.
If this is not the case please post back for further assistance.

You either have a bad timer, transmission, or the agitator is stripped on the splined shaft

SOURCE: no aggitation or spin, high pitched noise.

Sounds like you have a broken motor coupling , empty the unit , tilt it back against something so you can get a good look under it , the motor is in the middle of the pump[front side] and the gear case[back side] the shaft comes out of both ends of the motor , look for the part that connects the motor and the gear case , it is a small round rubber and plastic piece with prongs , all of the prongs have most likely broke off. , replace this and it should be fine. let me know if you have any other questions.

Check your motor drive coupler. Tilt washer back against wall and look between motor and transmission . You will see a rubber grommet and two plastic couplers on each end of rubber , They may appear broken or you will see rubber shavings under washer.

Washing machine won't rinse or spin


sounds as if you have a faulty lid switch, for safety reasons if the machine doesnt think the lid is closed it willnot spin/drain the waer out.
