Possible your outlet filter is blocked, check this out first, then your outlet pump, and clean it; refer to your manual.

SOURCE: Clothing stuck in washer machine


At times, items or pieces of clothing can be stuck in agitator, and will not allow it to move. First turn the machine off and make sure it is unplugged from electrical receptacle.

* Inside the machine, place each hand under the base of the agitator.

* Pull forcefully up and when loosened remove the agitator up and out of the machine.

* If an object is found remove it, and then replace the agitator by re-inserting it, down onto the shaft.

A "shaking and dancing machine."

* Every washing machine has what is referred to as "leveling feet" at the front of the machine. These "feet" can be adjusted to level the washer.

* Move the machine back and forth, to make sure it is resting with all four feet securely on the ground and are in position.

* Now use your level! Place it on the top of the machine and notice where your machine is off level. Leaving the carpenters level in place use the adjustable wrench and turn the leveling feet until the machine stays level in the floor, "is no longer rocking."

Your level should appear centered. Note: make sure you understand your load capacity, it is important not to overload with too many items of clothing.

SOURCE: White marks on my clothes.

Are you using TOO much powder? And is the machine set to the correct rinse tempature? You mention white stuff, does it look like undissolved washing powder? Or fabric softner? Possibly try liquid detergent and see if the problem continues. And follow the recommended amounts of detergent for each wash load, and the tempature settings. And of course the water levels. All of the above are crucial to insure you get maximum preformance and utility out of your machine, with the results you expect. Let us know what you find. Kindest Regards, Slats.

SOURCE: my hoover galaxy washing machine stops


It is normal for the drum to sway excessively and hit the balance switch if the load is not evenly distributed around the drum or if you have excess cloths.

Once the balance switch is trigerred, you can reset by openning and closing the door. It is a safety mechanism which stops the spin cycle if the drum sways excessively.

If this tends to happen often, then you need to make sure the machine is properly balanced and not leaning too much to the back.

Also the drum suspension rods do tend to wear out over time and loose their firmness, causing the drum to sway excessively. You can check this by opening the lid. Pushing down and from side to side onto the agitator, and seeing if their is a firm bound on the drum. Also making sure the drum returns to centre position. If the suspension springs feel loose and wayward, then they will need replacement.

The clothes r not washed properly n r dirty and also smells at times

It could be mould gathering in the machine, particularly in the dispenser and round the crevices of the door rubber. You are supposed to put machines through a service wash periodically to stop it building up. It can be worse if you do low temperature washes and use a non biological product because neither will kill the bugs that create mould.

Possible that the main power has failed , the power supply of the unit had packed up or there is a serious fault in the controller unit. You need to open the control panel unit to trace this case specially using a multimeter, check for the AC power to the unit and check for the DC to the circuit. If not the panel is a suspect.

My Hoover washing machine 2305l sometimes dosen't

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

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

Hoover 2305L when I pull the dial out to start it wont start

Check the mains supply power to the mains switch. Now make sure that the poles are clean , use spray to clean the terminals-- with the power OFF.
Now if there is no power to the inlet valve when the start is pulled , the the program controller can be faulty. Make sure the door switch is working as it will working as a protection in not starting the cycle.

Wear thick leather gloves to prevent injury to yourself.

Turn off machine - or reset to a short cycle / drain if the door won't open.

Unload with the gloves on into a plastic bucket or basket - take outdoors.

Hang on line dryer for pieces to fall off. If it looks badly ripped - bin the lot.

Hoover when dry if you think it will make it.
Brush up pieces.

Hoover machine drum to clear it.

Wash at least 5 washes without anything in the machine drum - beware of leaks.

Most pieces will pass through into the drain, but you cannot be 100% sure unless the drum is removed and the outer drum and hoses completely cleaned and checked.

If the machine is over 5 years old - buy another one to be safe.

Washer is turning my white clothes gray

Oil from transmission is a good possibility. The machine is still young but sounds like you do a lot with the washer. Better have a friend that don't mind looking it over, make sure that's oil and go from there!
