SOURCE: washing machine clogged with dirt

You probably have sediment clogged in the inlet hoses and/or screens in the water inlet valve of the washer. First, turn off your water taps in the back of the washer. Disconnect the hoses one at a time and insert them in the wash tub. Turn the water taps back on to see if you are getting water through the lines. If not, you will need to remove the hoses and flush them out. If the hoses appear fine, inspect the sediment screens on your water inlet valve (this is where the hoses connect to). You can use cotton swabs to remove most sediment. If you cannot get the screens to clear and/or if sediment has gotten inside the water inlet valve, you will probably have to replace it. Try flushing the lines and cleaning the sediment screens, first, though. I hope this helps you.

You'll need to pull the hoses off the pump and inspect the inlet strainer and pump impeller for debris.

My Hoover Elite Rewind just lost power while vacuuming and wont power back on?


Hi! It appears your thermal protector sensor has kicked in and caused your cleaner to power off. This is usually due to a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Try these steps to get your vacuum back up & running!

1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Hold filter under running water until water runs clear. Squeeze out the filter and allow 24 hours to air dry.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash)
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose.

Your vacuum should turn back on after it cools off, this can take up to an hour. Hope this helps!

Hoover troubleshooting


Hello! The umbrella tube is a stationary part, it does not rotate. The dirt that enters in the dirt cup spins around the umbrella tube. If no dirt is entering into the dirt cup this can mean there is a blockage either in your hoses and/or your filters. Try these quick trouble shooting steps below.

1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Hold filter under running water until water runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry. If the filter is really dirty it may need to be replaced.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash)
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose. Hope this helps!

If the filter is clogged would it quit working


Hi there! If the filter is clogged this will cause the vacuum to lose suction and possibly shut-off. Below are instructions to checking and cleaning your filters.

1. Remove the dirt cup. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the filter cartridge from dirt cup.
3. Separate the foam and cartridge filters. Wash foam filter under running. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside the vacuum.
4. Tap the excess dirt out of Hepa filter. Hepa filter may also be washed. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
5. Check the secondary filter by removing the filter cover from base. Rinse the foam filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry.
6. The red baffle tube inside of the dirt cup is apart of the filtration of the vacuum and needs to be cleaned as well. Twist out the baffle tube by turning 1/4 turn clockwise. Remove any hair or debris wrapped around baffle tube. Baffle tube can be rinsed if needed. Allow to dry thoroughly.

If the filters are too dirty they may need to be replaced. With regular maintenance the filters should be replaced about once a year. Follow the links below to order replacement filters for your UH20020.

My clothes are coming out dirtier than when they went in, some with dirt smudges, some with dirt dots from the holes in the sides of the tub. Is there a screen/filter I can clean?? What's going on?


Try running a load with NO clothes, only water and a liquid detergent. There likely is a chuck of dirt under the agitator that is filtering particles up into your load. One good fill, wash and rinse cycle should do it.
