Hoover Optima 614 Temperature Sensor Fault

I have a 4 year old Hoover Optima 614 washing machine which is failing to complete the washing cycle most of the time and the cold wash light flashes 5 times. I understand that this indicates a fault with the Temperature Sensor but, before I order a replacement, I would like to be able to confirm that the part is faulty (and that it is not another part of the circuit). I have spoken to Hoover who are unable to give me the Part Number of tell me how I can check the existing part with a multimeter although they can sell me a new sensor. It would be very much appreciated if is anyone able to tell me how I can check the sensor to confirm that the sensor that it is faulty before I order a replacement.

SOURCE: Fault code on washing machine

Plug off the wall; open up behind; check to see that all connections are firm fixed. Due to vibrations, etc, some may have come loose - to give you wrong or no data. People always want to sell you something.....always, service is quite another story..............................Read the manual carefully.

SOURCE: Error code F09/Whirlpool Duet front loading washer

"F09" is an Overflow Condition error. This is usually attributed to a malfunctioning pressure switch, loose or broken connector between the Pressure Switch, Drain Pump and Central Control Unit (CCU), or...a drain pump or drain line that has become clogged.

Since this problem occurs periodically during the wash cycle, I would check your drain pump filter for obstructions first. It could be that you have debris lodged in the pump causing it not to drain properly. To access the pump:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Placing a couple of blocks of wood under the front feet of the washer will make access much easier.
3. The drain pump is located under the wash tub in the center. HINT: If you own a shop vac, remove the drain line from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum through the drain line. This will remove all residual water from the washer and make clean up later a lot less messy. Now, remove the cover on the drain pump and remove. Clean out the pump filter and check the pump impeller for obstructions.

If you do not own a shop vac, place a bunch of towels around the drain pump BEFORE you open it. There's about a gallon or so of water in the tub, drain line and pump.

Try this first, and let me know if this corrects your problem. If not, you may need to check the pressure switch and wiring. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: LE fault code for LG WD-1019bd washer

I found that in winter time not a problem with my LG front loader, but when the temperature went over 30 Celsius the problem came back and intermittent like yours did, there was also an unusual noise coming from the machine.
What I did to fix the problem was to remove the stator and place it in the freezer for about half an hour or so, I also cleaned any minor dust and grit from both the Stator magnets and the Stator drum, replaced it still very cold and now it works well with no more unusual noise and the outside temperature has no more bearing on the machine not spinning this day!
I hope this helps!

Hi


Error code e005 means the temperature sensor has gone bad. To fix this error you'll need to replace the temperature sensor. It might have happened that the temperature sensor wires have been disconnected from the main board. To replace the temperature sensor you'll need to disassemble the washer and inspect the drum's bottom for the temperature sensor. Also check the wires coming to the sensor fro any cut.

Please post back for any further assistance.

I have a hoover vhd 9163zd with error code E05,what component does it refer to being at fault,where is the component located


Error Code 05 is a NTC fault, either open circuit or shorted.
If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, the "E05" error code will be displayed.

Possible Causes / Procedure:
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check the water temperature sensor. Check connections to the water temperature sensor.
3. Check resistance of heating element, if present on this model. (abnormal = infinity).

Replace failed component. It could be the sensor or the temperature control module (NTC module).

Good luck.

Hoover optima not displaying correct wash times


Seems that if the fault seems to be permanent it is due to failure of the PROGRAM CONTROLLER UNIT.
You will need to check on the connectors to and from the controller, clean and reset. If not replacement of the controller is the only solution.

Hoover Optima washing machine has error 14 on the display. How do I resolve this


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Error 14 for your Hoover Optima decodes as 'Faulty core board or water heater/NTC fault'.
'NTC' stands for 'Negative Temperature Co-efficient' or water temperature thermostat in real terms!
One way of hopefully getting around this problem is first to ensure the washer is empty then pour the contents of a boiling kettle or two into it. That can sometimes kick the device into correct action. It's worth a try anyway before having to call in the repair man ;-0)
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My hoover optima washing machine model no. HNF 6127 keeps stopping when it gets to the rinse cycle


Make sure it is not on rinse hold or crease care, release if it is, make sure pump is working, and that the cold inlet valve is working., all of these things could prevent it from completing rinse cycle.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.
