    Same probelm here. Cleaned the drains starting from the machine and also checked that there was no blockage in the pump. No help.


    Mine is Hoover Six is now 6 years old so I guess it means get a new machine every six years.

    my pump does not seem to want to pump the water away I have disconnected from the mains to try and re-start but pump is not kicking in.

    The filter is clear and all the water in the drum escaped from here when I checked the filter. It did a wash cycle fine prior to this fault. Error No.3 any ideas?

SOURCE: Hoover AAA 160 Error 3

If you are certain that all pipes are clear, then you may wish to check the pressure pot & pressure switch ( & small hose joining the two as this could be telling lies to the program unit. If the machine is emptying but the switch fails to read the level correctly, it can cause the same sort of error problem. Pressure pots can fill with the "grey soap gunk" and switches pressure are a reletively common fault also. Good luck

I have this problem too. Also i've had error code 5 come up as well. I think error code 3 is saying that pumping water out for so many minuites has failed. I've cleaned and run the pump out of the machine and everything works ok and there is no blockages. There still could be a problem when wired back in the machine. I have seen the pumped water coming out of the waste hose. Does anyone know if there is a sycro motor on the back of the controller or program selector that may be failing ? (ie: teeth worn off drive gear like you get on centrol heating valves).

SOURCE: Error message EC03 appears on cotton cycle after 5 minutes into wash

I found the basic instructions that came with the washing machine and found that you need a screwdriver to undo a screw to remove the filter cover. I then gradually released the filter cover to empty the water out of the machine in small quantities into a shallow tray. I was then able to remove the filter and clear it of 2 x 20p pieces and a load of gunk. I then removed the 'washable' floormat from the drum as the rubber backing from the mat was crumbling and probably not helping the filter. Filter cleaned and cover screwed back in, mat in the bin, and everything working fine since.

I did try ringing the customer support number and after pressing loads of keys to select appropriate options; confirming my address, postcode, name, date of birth, email address, mothers maiden name, what the kids had for breakfast etc, I was allowed to ask how to get the filter cover off. Apparently this is a technical query and would involve arranging an engineer to call. I declined this very kind service option and opted for a screw driver, common sense and a positive attitude. Worked for me! No blood shed, a tiny bit of sweat whilst trying to get through on phone, and only tears of joy when I fixed it all by myself.

SOURCE: error number 2 appears on Hoover AAA whisper 1400

I downloaded the manual from Hoover website. Error number 2 relates to the washing machine not filling up with enough water. Check the water supply and correct angle of the pipe.

Hoover 1400 AAA washing machine tripping house fuse


Possible that the control panel is short and so is tripping the fuse. Remove the connection to the panel and check if there is short , also remove the motor and check and this can confirm the case.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Being from the UK I am amazed that vendors elsewhere seem not to supply manuals automatically with each machine!
???
Manual
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) 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.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

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

How do you repace the door hing on a AAA140 Hoover


should not need to as the 2 screws holding the hinge to the frontplate of the machine goes into a threaded nut welded to the panel (a torx 30 or 40 bit is needed).. just remove the screws and raise the hinge and pull forward..(keyhole slotted on)... then reverse to attach the new door...

WASHING MACHINE FILLS WITH WATER AT START THEN STOPS SHOWING ERROR 5


the usual issues with this type of washer is the relay board located inside the top of the unit. as i remember mfgs make a nice unit but are not so good for sealing the electronics off from the rest of the unit. chances are some moisture is up in the relay or relay socket. easy access you will see several relays. pull and tag each as you do to avoid confusion. check for corrision build up on any part of this unit. this should help.. gl k
