Suggestion: First plug off the wall. Remove the back panel of the machine. Check to see it the thin tube going from the top control panel to the exit side below the machine is block free. To check disconnect this from the top and blow into it. It should not blocked, refit. This is the water level control. Secondly check out your pump.

My Hoover UltraCare 1500 washing machine keeps repeating the spin cycle, even when I turn the programme control knob to stop

Sounds like the timer control switch is messed up. I had the same thing happen to my washer because my roommate was impatient and tried to spin the timer like the big wheel on the Price is Right. The plastic tabs broke and the timer died.

Hoover nextra 7 program stops part way though

A possible fault that is consistent with your symptoms is that the water level sensing is confused. This is usually a column of water in a plastic tube bearing on a diaphragm switch which operates when the weight of water is sufficient to trip it.

The water level is adjusted by a dial which alters the pre-loading on the switch, meaning it needs a bigger or lesser column of water to trip it. If there is a leak in the tube, that would account for the water level trying to cycle. Any water underneath the machine? If so it is a good indicator that is the right track. If not it still may be that fault, but the leaking water is just not making it to the floor.

It is normal that the program suspends for filling, and it will not give rise to an error. Also normal is flow through the detergent drawer whenever there is a fill cycle. What is not normal is the repeated fill cycles.

Also investigate the actual switch associated with the level sensing. It might have bad contacts.

Please post what you eventually find the fault to be. Helps everyone, especially those trying to diagnose at a distance.

Fills with water, drains, will not spin. sometimes will not fill

This is almost certainly the filter to the empty pump blocked. When you power up the machine, the first thing it does is make sure there is no water left over in the tub, if it can't evacuate any water it finds there, it won't go any further. Same on a spin, if after a set time the water hasn't emptied the empty cycle will stop but the spine cycle wont start because there is still water in the drum.

Locate and clean your empty pump filter.

Hoover ultracare 1300 large load stopping mid cycle at a variety of different points and having to be manually stopped and started again at another point to complete the wash

Checkout your filter at the bottom of the machine, undo the bottom flap below the door, front. Plug off the wall mains socket. Be prepared for a lot of water so keep plastic bag, towels ready. Unscrew the plug you see to make water flow into bag; when all water has been disposed off, clean this filter & inside, refit carefully.

How do you remove the filter for a Hoover washing machine Optima Nextra Model HNL 6166?

I included a link on Youtube to my Nextra where I show how I clean the filter (watch it from 08:55 onwords). Just remove the kick strip and unscrew (philips screwdriver needed) the little screw on the filter itself, then turn it anti-clockwise but while you're doing this make sure you insert the kick strip underneath to gather the residual water. Repeat this operation 3 o 4 times until the sump is totally empty, make sure you don't let the kick strip fill up too much otherwise you'll be spilling water all over the place, so just turn the filter clockwise everytime you want to stop the trickle of water. It's not too complicated and it won't be too messy if you follow these instructions carefully. Good luck ;-)
