Question about Hoover HTC243 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Blocked filters/dodgy pump?

Hi. Got a Hoover 500M from my boss a few months ago.

Before I got it, it was sitting Idle for about 12 months - and it was used with a combination of irrigation water/rain water prior to that.

Anyway, just the other day, after doing 1 load no probs, once commencing the second load, during the fill cycle, water stopped coming into the machine (stopped pumping). Checked hoses etc for blockages - all ok.

All other cycles seem to work - but washed clothes by other means, and just used spin cycle.

Have tried since, but only a little amount of water trickles in, and stops.

Could a filter somewhere be the problem, or is the fill pump fudged and needs replacing?

Wouldn't mind knowing where the filters are also. Note the machine is used with cold water only.

Cheers for any help.

Dave

    Yep.

    Inlet valve was the problem. Repair guy came early this morning (Saturday) and was fixed in under 15 minutes.

    Cheers ajs_biz - spot on advice.

    Thanks again,

    Dave

The problem you are having could simply be the inlet valve.

The inlet hose is attached to the inlet valve on the machine. Where it screws on that is.

You can get a valve from an appliance parts shop and they are inexpensive.

My Hoover BOSS 2315l started having issues not finishing the spin cycle, now it just continues to turn off every few min, so I need to keep restarting it. Does anyone know whats wrong please.


Symptomatic of a blocked drain pipe, blocked filter, or a failed drain pump, drain pump with a broken impeller.

Remove the filter cover and check for obstructions. Attach a hose pipe to the drain hose, wrap it with a towel, hold the two hoses over a bucket and get someone to turn the hose on until you can't hold the pipes any longer, usually about 15 seconds. This clears obstructions in the pipe into the machine drum and filter. After checking the filter and behind it, put it on for a rinse and spin.

If the pump has failed, you can drain the machine by lowering the drain hose into a bucket or floor drain.

There are videos online on how to change out a faulty drain pump.
