Re: hoover washing machine HF7160E

I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, and this at first sounds like motor carbons, the belt needs to be placed on from the bottom motor pulley first the onto the drum pulley last, not easy to describe in words, anyway start with the carbons, then if they ok there is a module (main PCB circuit board) normally on Hoover washes located top of machine inside front right corner in a plastic casing, look for burn marks. work safe with electrics, always unplug first

I have a Hoover top load 610 and it wont start wash cycle

These are a great little machine,I dont know why they have to go changing things.Anyway this sounds to me like the timer.It fills & the water cuts off so the inlet valve is ok.It drains so the pump is ok.It spins so the motor should be ok.Try it on other cycles like gentle or delicate & see if it agitates.I'm sure it will be the Timer.

Started a load of laundry water filled fine started washing and agitating and then heard a weird noise like something got stuck and went and it sounds like motor is running but will not agitate or spin and...

Please give a make and model of washing machine. I suspect that something has stripped out between the motor and the transmission, which is the noise you heard.

Hoover washing machine top load, model 550m.5.5kg

water leak from cold hose nothing to do with other problem. tighten hose connection and fit a new hose washer overfilling probably because air chamber blocked. remove lid. you will see a pressurestat somewhere at the top - usually round with anything from 3 to 7 wires and a small tube underneath. follow hose down and it connects to the air chamber. make sure this is free of gung and check hose for splits and has no blockage. to check the pressure stat itself, attach your own hose to the stat and while machine in fill mode, blow down this hose and you should hear a click and water intake will stop

Light comes on but machine doesn't start

well lets see, you have one of two or both, the water level switch or the timer, if the machine dont recive a good level of water(depend on the seting) it dosent start washing, but if the water level switch dont receive curent from the timer, it wont work, so you gona need a tech any way....good luck
