The belt will not stay on the wheel that turns the drum washing machine hoover hnl7146


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It's always the best idea to purchase a replacement belt as the old one is bound to come off for the same reason as it did the first time ;-0)
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
Hope this is your problem solved.
Good luck,
John C

Hoover H160E - stops with lights flashing 4 times (cyclic)... suaully before aspin cycle... appears to be incomplete drain (drains until no water viisble in drum - but still significant water at drain.....


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would definitely change the pump motor judging from your clear symptoms and observations!
It's probable that the motor isn't running efficiently, just enough when helped by the 'gravity' of the full drum but struggles once that is minimum.

Go for it ;-0)

Hoover 1300 washing machine door wont open


Hi.
The door will not normally open if there is water left in the m.c. check pump, and make sure the belt is o/k, as some hoovers do not let you open the door if the belt has come off. Please leave feedback.
Thanks.

Hoover 200 m unbalanced and noisy on spin cycle can't balance it


hi The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:
Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.
Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.
Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.
Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.

Hoover 5kg washing machine


sounds like a spring which keeps the tub centred is broken. Could also be a worn bearing. this needs specialised tools to get the problem fixed, especially to replace the bearing. contact a repair-person.
