Question about Hoover HW6 160M Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Water leak I have a hole in a hose that runs from the top of the machine into the bottom filter/pump system. it runs past a concrete weight and has rubbed against the weight and made a hole. I would like to get a new hose but don't know its name. The machine is a Hoover HW160M. The leak only appears at the beginning of a wash. I would be grateful for any advise. Thank you, Steve. stevelisa1@tesco.net

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

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.

SOURCE: Hoover HW160m - double inlet but only 1 tap at new build.

Hello,

You can use the cold water only with no issues at all. The only thing you will have to do is buy a cap to block off the hot water inlet on the back of the machine otherwise the cold water will flow out through it onto your floor etc.

And yes, your machine has an element built in which will heat the water for you!

Regards,
Adrian.

SOURCE: the water does not get pumped out of the machine

The filter is to be found at the bottom front left of washer behind a removeable plastic trim, if you can see a screw in the filter cover, undo this, and turn filter anticlockwise to remove.
If no filter at front, then remove rear panel of washer, and remove large black hose fastened to drum, check for blockage here, and check the pump at the same time.

Thanks

Leaks water from bottom


Is it really from the BOTTOM, or is it spilling out the overflow holes in the back, then running down to the counter? If it's just spilling out the overflow holes, don't put quite so much water into it.

If it's really leaking from the bottom, and it happens even if you put only one or two cups of water into it, then the little hose running from the heating element inside up to the top filter has cracked or come off. You can fix that by opening the bottom of the coffeemaker (UNPLUGGED FROM THE WALL). You'll see where the rubber hose connects to the heating element and runs up along the rear tank. Check the connection where it attaches to the heating element.

Why is the water running out of the lint filter on front loading washing machine


If the washer is leaking water the drain pump might have a hole or crack. Or, the bearings might be worn out. Replace the drain pump if it is leaking water, they're not repairable.
Check also the condition of the hoses and clamps going to and from the pump and the filter rubber seal.

Water is coming from the machine. we have checked the hoses but did not find any cracks. Any suggestion on what it could be and how to fix it?


The hose that connects at the water pump may be your culprit in the leak. Otherwise, the tub gasket is leaking.

If you are able, position the washer on top of 4 concrete blocks (1 at each corner), that should make it easier to see underneath with a mirror to see where the water is coming from, and verify that water is leaking from the pump area.

Problem : Water leaking out from under washing machine


NOTE. PLEASE UN-PLUG THE UNIT FROM THE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING THE FOLLOWING JUST TO BE SAFE:-

Problem may be due to a blocked dispenser hole. Completely remove the dispenser unit and check for blockages in the hole where the water goes in. If you cant see anything immediate, take the top off. (Remove the 2 self tapping screws on the back holding the top on). Looking at the unit from the front. look inside where you took the top off and locate the rubber hose that connects the dispenser unit to the drum (it's a tight space, but if you look inside , front left you will see where the hose connects to the drum). Remove the hose and check for blockages. (The hose just pushes into the drum). Let me know. I had a similar problem and found that somebody had shoved a sock and pair of knickers down the water dispenser hole. This was also causing the machine to make a loud noise when spinning. Have you also checked the filter in the bottom right hand corner of the unit ? You have to remove the kick panel to get access to it.

Error F 09


ill include the offical "f 09" straight from the tech sheet, blah blah blah.. what i would look to be an issue ( find it regularly)if you remove the topo of the unit(3 screws across the back) in the back rigth corner youll find the "Pressure switch" sorta a reddish'brown circular box with a black rubber hose coming out the bottom, you can removeth hose and blow through it, id imagine tht half way down youll find a hole where it has rubbed against teh concrete counter weight, this hole in the hose is whats causing your "f09"you can cut the hose and replaceit, usually i fu\ind a small diameter plastic hose and splice it together, till i getthe replacemnt hose.





If the overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than
60 seconds, an Overflow Condition will occur. In an overflow condition,
the door remains locked and the drain pump runs constantly, even if
PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the display is cleared. Turn off hot
and cold water faucets and unplug the unit before servicing.

1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump,
pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Check for drain pump failure.
6. Check the inlet valve for proper shut off.
7. Check the pressure switch for proper operation.

Water coming out of the bottom


It could be a hole in one of the hoses or a possible leaking pump. tip the unit back so you can see underneath. Not all the way though. I usually prop it against the wall. you should see the pump it has 2 hoses going to it one from the tub to pump and one from the pump to the drain. Check those, check the hoses, check the tub for a hole. More than likly it's a bad pump

Water leak


Remove the lower panel under the washer door and inspect the interior. The panel is removed by loosening and removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed the panel will drop down, then off. Inspect the following areas:

- Check all hoses for leaks, cracks, holes and loose connections. Check the seal where the drain hose from the bottom of the wash tub connects to the intake of the drain pump. Make sure the drain hose from the pump to the standpipe is connected snug to the pump and is not leaking.
- Check the drain pump to ensure it is not leaking. The clean out reservoir cap (if not fitted properly) can leak around the seal.
- Check the door bellow (gray rubber boot) to ensure it is not leaking. HINT: A tale-tell sign of bellow leakage is wetness showing up on the front washer counterweight. This is a concrete block mounted to the front of the wash tub. It is not supposed to be wet.
- Check the pressure switch air hose to ensure it is connected to the air dome on the side of the wash tub. This is a small rubber hose that runs from the pressure switch in the top left rear of the washer (viewed from the back, with the washer top panel removed) to the bottom right hand side of the wash tub. However, if this hose were to come off the air dome fitting, the wash tub would continously try to fill and water would begin to pour from the bottom of the wash tub. If this does not sound like your symptoms, disregard this step.
- Check the seam where the wash tub shells meet. There is a rubber tub gasket that seals the two tub halves together. If the seal is bad, water will begin to collect and drip along this seam.
- Check the tub for cracks. This is NOT common, but it can happen.

The following link explains the step-by-step process of checking and cleaning the drain pump:

I mention this link, because it gives you some guidance on how to access the pump and how avoid the possible mess involved with water pouring out of the pump.

If you discover the door bellow as the the cause for your leak, please refer to this link:

Water leaks and spin cycle not working properly


Water leaking from the bottom usually indicates either a bad hose , bad hose connection to the pump or a leaking pump. Also sounds like the machine is not spinning out. Is there water left in the tub at the end of the cycle?
