Electra 535 Dual Spin - I`m trying to discover what the capacity of this machine is, the manual supplied with the machine gives all spec.s apart from its size. ie is it 6, 6.5 or 7. kilos...

From what I remember, the 535 is a 5.5 kg machine. The best way to load any front loader is to have the tub full but not packed. Its the safest. As for weight capacity, due to Australian Standards testing, machines have to state what load they will handle with a certain volume of water and power usage, but any front loader, load it up but dont pack the clothes in and you will have the best efficiency. By the way, the clothes are measured dry weight..

Hi, My Hoover 600MB top loading washing machine is approx 8 years old. Recently it has occassionally not fully spun out - clothes still wet at end of cycle. Now it also often doesn't agitate - just...

Have a look for coins etc stuck in the drain pump or the tub outlet hoses especially where they fit onto the tub. If a coin or other foreign material blocks the water flow when draining , these machines wont spin properly.

Check the inlet screen on the hose connection on the back of the machine. This may be clogged with debris, also make sure you hose is not crimped. You can unhook the inlet hose and put it in a bucket and turn it on to see how much water is actuall coming thru that hose. I suspect some type of blockage in the inlet.

Your question is not easy to answer. An average washing machine is 8 kg. The smaller 6 kg will use less water and detergent, but you will be limited to 4 or 5 pair of jeans at one time...unless your children are small. A front loading machine may be a better choice for you. It can do very large loads, 12 kg, and still use less water and detergent than most top loaders, but be prepared to pay three times the price of a top loader.

Top loader 600MB fills water but wont wash or spin.Water fills to right level and timer turns o.k.

Check the lid switch for proper operation. If the switch is bad or not being actuated by the lowered lid, it will block operation of the machine.

Hoover 600mb doesn't spin dry. Clothes just sit in the machine without moving. Water empties OK, but clothes are dripping wet.

Valve blocked in rear of drum. Switch off power supply before cleaning. If the problem still occurs it could possibly be the brushes in the motor. both jobs are simple and very cheap to repair

Hoover 600MB Top Loader, Won't Spin

I have the same problem. Just started missing the spin cycles and now I need to find which part to replace.
So far I think it could be: Aged contacts in the Timer, a faulty spin/no spin switch, or something to do with the brake/release mechanisms etc. ..I do know that the problem is electrical because everytime the motor starts the spin works fine; therefore eliminating in my opinion, the mechanical gearbox bits as a cause.
