Hoover Nextra washing machine - water backing up

When starting wash programme, detergent washed down but then water comes flooding out of the detergent drawer! I stopped programme, mopped up and seems that water level out of detergent drawer not dropping. Advice please as looks as though there is either a blockage into drum or maybe there is a valve stuck? - so is there an easy way to release/rectify? Many thanks!

    Thanks, I've pulled out and cleaned drawer but I can see that water level for where water (and detergent) is fed into machine hasn't dropped so problem looks to be further down

    Hi, in the end repairman came out and apparently it is a common design fault with Hoover Nextra machines to have a u bend on the black rubber pipe that feeds down from the detergent drawer into the machine.  Watching what he did, the repairman folded back the rubber drum seal to access the rubber pipe which was clearly blocked with soggy soap powder so he scraped it all out and refitted pipe.  No requirement to access machine from rear or to access the water level tube.  Tip appears to be to use tablets in wash rather than detergent!

    water and detergent in the drawer after it is finished washing

  • Anonymous Mar 25, 2014

    I laid it down and changed the shocks but now it won't behave.... it is as if it is in the middle of a programme but it won't stop. It turns the drum slowly but nothing changes and it runs and runs. If I turn the programme dial to top/stop it keeps on going. The progress light is intermittent but when its on it stays at the top. Nothing is inconsistent.I press the door open and nothing happens. I wondered if I'd disturbed the contents of the large rubber tube out the bottom of the drum? Maybe water from the powder drawer got into the electrics? Any ideas very welcome! Thanks!

If this is a front loader see that u use only washing powder for FRONT LOADING MACHINES. Also possible your detergent drawer is clogged with old dry detergent. Pull out the drawer and clean with tooth brush. Things shd be fine.

    If this is a front loader, do open up the rear, after disconnecting from the wall socket.  There is a thin tube going down from the control panel to the water exit area; disconnect this tube from the top and blow into it, air should freely flow; if not, clear this tube. Refit.  This is the water level tube, it should be clear, your machine would then not flood.

What tray is what for a Hoover nextra washing machine?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
A quick and easy way to find out which tray is which is to pull the detergent drawer out just so that you can see into it. Start a pre-wash and see where the water runs in, then advance to the main wash and observe. Finally start a rinse cycle and where the water goes in is where the conditioner/softener goes.
In a few cases I have come across, the pre-wash tray shares with the conditioner/softener part but the pre-wash powder goes in the front and the softener in the back.
Methinks you could also do with a manual!
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Good luck,
John C.

Hoover Nextra HNF2127 washing machine. Lights flashing at finish


Thanks for using FixYa. The start and pre-wash usually flash due to a clogged drain hose or the water pump. You’ll need to drain the water out of the base and also check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine). If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Hoover nextra 1200

The machine only allows a limited time for all the water to drain out before it starts spinning. If the is a blockage or obstruction in the drain hose or drain pump, the machine will not allow all the water to be pumped out and it will not spin. Check for any restriction especially under the sink/tub where the drain hose attatches to the drain spigot.
