Question about Hoover PE235 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Timer just spins round

Hi when we start the wash, sometimes the timer just clicks round without completing any of the cycles. Sometimes it even clicks round to a different wash cycle. (ie we've had it click from non/fast colours to 90c white wash). Any ideas? I'm about to order a new timer but thought i would check first.

Re: Timer just spins round

yes it is the timer,i had the same thing happened to me on a hoover,i was told that the fault was when you turn the timer to a programme to do this slowly and gently and if you go pass a programme not to turn it back but to go forward again until you get to the right programme..hope this helps.all the a new timer may cost about £80 to £100.

I have a Sears Kenmore washer that sometimes does not spin in the spin cycle and sometimes it does. The timer progresses to stop, but clothes are still dripping wet. Resetting timer from spin usually...

The transmission in this machine is worn and is not shifting correctly. Understand that after the aggitate cycle, this machine should go into drain cycle without spinning and it should drain for about 1 minute. Then it should kick into spin cycle after it has emptied all the water. What is happening is it is (like skipping) the drain cycle and going directly into spin with water still in it,,, so the spin is slow as it is trying to empty and spin at the same time,,, thus the clothes do not spin out correctly,,, when you reset the spin, you actually spin all the water out the second time around.

My series 90 washing machine stops midway through the rinse cycle

Hi, faulty timer motor or timer, knob you turn for different cycles (programs) , it's called timer, that timer usually run by small motor, and sometimes burnt out, could be electronic too, remove top back panel, look at timer, you'll see small motor, attached by two small screws, remove motor, place ohm tester lead, and check for continuity. if motor is burnt out, replace it, if your timer is electronic, you will have to replace complete timer, good luck.

Washing machine will not complete spin cycle

OK, what you are experiencing is a timer mechanism fault. the timer motor is malfunctioning. anytime you have to manually advance the timer knob, this will signal a fault within the control mech. this is easily fixed by, replacing the timer control module. i will place a link to the actual part needed to fix this issue. you can also purchase this timer on line at this site if you wish.

Sometimes the spin cycle works and sometimes it doesn't. The water is draining, but sometimes the clothes are still very wet and I have to wring water out of them before I put them in the dryer.

if that is a top load whirpool suspect transmission..the transmission is designed to drain first and then after another timer pause go into spin sometimes after the pause they fail to do so it is a hard problem to verify without a lot of patience..put washer into final rinse allow washer to complete cycle on it's own DO NOT MANUALLY ADVANCE TIMER OR OPEN LID if possible you can raise lid and hold lid switch down.. after agitation there should a short pause then pump out then another pause and spin should engage if you do not here spin raise lid then shut if spin starts change transmission..on rare ocassion have seen timer never pause then change timer if this is only occasional may be hard to spot and may require more than 1 attempt to catch it..good luck

Have maytag washing machine model no LAT5006AGE serial no 25000887yk which will not spin belt appears ok but motor is not working for the spin cycle. It washes fills drains all ok do you have a solution...

Possibly a lid switch. The washer shouldn't spin if it thinks the lid is open. Possibly a wiring issue. Check the wiring to the motor. If those check out it could be a problem with the timer. Sometimes bad contacts in a timer can be checked by turning the washer on in the spin cycle where it should be working and wiggling the timer shaft up and down and around without turning the knob. If the washer starts and stops, you've got a bad timer.

Hoover H120M Washing Machine No fabric softner and dial clicking round

always check your carbon brushes which are situated at your motor covered in a plastic covering must be at least 8ml long these start at 1inch in length may not be giving enough contact to your motor for the timer to click into action m8 but if these are ok then it will be more than likely your timer which is faulty with it not doing the water inlet valves properly
