Question about Hoover Washing Machines

1 Answer

Machines 510 Its an old machine (a 510, Model No. A6274). I've looked after it, replacing parts when needed. Has always run well. I do a yearly check/service - replacing belts and hoses etc as needed. Just lately the machine has been slow on spin. Normally it reaches full speed quickly and spins out okay. Now it seems to spin only at half speed. I've checked the belt for looseness and oil (the belt is okay). First I thought it was too much washing load, so just to check I ran the spin without water or washing and still slow. Now I wonder if it is the motor? I replaced it many years ago, but now wonder if there is a problem (motor) or maybe an issue with the clutch system (which as far as I can tell is working okay). Any help would be much appreciated. regards, Phil

These machines can get seized bearings, which can stop the bowl from turning at full speed. probably the motor after this.the clutch should affect full spin speed only if it's worn. this fault can be a timer issue also.

SOURCE: Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only

Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim

To determine if the transmission caused the belt to wear, then unplug the washer, and looking up inside toward the transmission, note the large diameter pulley that the belt goes around. See if you can turn it by hand. It should turn freely in both directions.

This isn't a 100% guarantee that the transmission is good, but will give you an indication. Make sure the washer is at the end of it's cycle when trying this.

If it turns, replace the belt and see what happens. If it doesn't, make sure none of the solenoids are engaging the linkage, otherwise, you'll be trying to turn the drum or agitator.

Washing machine is making a sound like electric arcing which I have experience before on other machines and think it's the carbon brushes that need replacing. I've done this on other machines but...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I ALWAYS advise replacing the motor! It might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the com, often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. Alternately a new motor! I changed the motor (and belt whilst I was at it!) on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(

Spares Suppliers
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer spares' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. Alternately you could try telephone directories for spares suppliers but I would think the former would be more successful.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

The faulty float valve is almost always the problem, based on what you described. It is a replaceable part, but you may have to but the entire bucket assembly. Generally, they run around $50.00. However, not all parts are still available for that model, even though it's only 4 years old.

If you want pursue finding the float valve or a new bucket assembly, the best place I've found is online is Appliance Factory Parts http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/search/index.php they carry parts for just about any appliance you can think of.

Or Frigidaire Parts Select

I need a new sewing foot as the lower part of mine has fallen off do you know where I can get one


Most sewing machines can use a universal foot, meaning you can buy the foot at nearly anyplace that sells sewing supplies. I'd suggest removing the foot from your machine and taking it with you to your local Joann's/Hancock Fabrics or small shop (check your yellow pages or Yahoo!Local) and ask them to give you a hand. They can look at the foot you have and help you see if a universal foot will fit.

I've never heard of a machine that doesn't use a universal foot-in my 30+ years of sewing, I'm still using the universal foots from my grandmother's 50+ year old tailoring machine! And I know have a computerized embroidery machine that's only 3 years old! But do be on the sure side and go into a store if you can.

Bearings gone


All Indesit washing machines are aimed at the budget end of the market; as such the outer drum assembly is polypropylene instead of steel. This type of construction is common to almost all cheaper brands which are really designed to simply be thrown away when major parts fail.

Bearing replacement is often impossible as the outer drum inevitably cracks when the old bearing is driven out or when the new one is installed. Indesit do not normally even offer the bearing as a spare part, but if you do get the old one out a replacement can usually be supplied by a bearing shop if you take the old one along for comparison. If you then buy a new bearing and then crack the outer drum whilst trying to install it you won't be able to get a refund.

Your only realistic options are as follows:-

1. replace the entire drum assembly;
2. replace the outer drum complete with the bearing;
3. replace the entire machine.

The first option is not usually cost effective, the second option isn't always possible as it's not always available as a spare part (you didn't state which exact model you have).

The third option may be your only practical solution if you cannot put up with the noise or if the faulty bearing is causing other issues. You also need to consider that if your Indesit is used every day, then it will typically last only around three years from new before major parts start to wear out, so you might repair your machine only to find that it soon needs a new pump or has a sensor, switch or circuit board failure. Better quality (but more expensive) brands will typically last in excess of six years.

Avoid any used washing machines unless you get them for free and they just need a cheap fix like a new pump (or even better when they just need that errant sock pulled out of the tube leading to the pump: many perfectly good machines are thrown away with simple fixes like those). A bargain used machine is only a bargain if it lasts at least a year or two, and professionally "refurbished" machines normally only come with a less than reassuring ninety day warranty.

Poor frothing


You need to check (or replace) the air-intake nozzle which is located inside the coffee outlet. You will sure loose the good froth if that part is not clean or replaced. There should be proper amount of air input to produced the proper froth.

Knocking sound in the spin cycle off balance.


The motor switch that is mounted on the motor may need replacing. The knocking could mean that the "run" winding is cutting off momentarily, and running on the "start" winding of the motor. I dont know about a 22 year old model, but in most "near modern" machines, the switch has a plastic actuator that is pushed when the motor obtains near-run speed, that plastic may be worn or the actuator part on the motor may be at fault. If you replace the motor, you usually get this switch as part of the deal.
