Question about Hoover Nextra HNF 3167 Top Load Washer
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.

Hi are the clothes tangled up around the agitator if so the gearbox may be faulty or the brake may be worn,is it washing in both directions

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.

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.

Tips for a great answer:
There are various factors that you can check out when a washing machine won't agitate. Please check the bellow link to troubleshoot your problem.
As you are saying the machine is 8 years old then if the problem does not resolve then you need to take your machine to the dealer for a thorough check up.
