Question about Washing Machines
Could anyone tell me what the error E08 means on a Hoover Optima OPH 714 D washing machine?
Thanks in advance!
Hi I had this fault, google said it was tachometer fault. the e08 fault on my hoover optima was not the tachometer, i checked it, but the fix was very easy, the motor brushes were worn out and i changed them for 10 quid, I made a video of it its on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYn-f78GB4U and it shows you how to test the tacho and how to change the brushes, hope this helps someone

1. please provide the model number for the washer
2. this is a timer error code and it seems that it locked the door during the spin cycle.
There may be a malfunction sensor or you will need to unplug the washer to reset the washer to complete the cycle.
Something electronic has caused the washer to shut down to protect the electronic circuit. You may have a defective timer.

After far more research than I usually have to do, It seems that E16 means "O/C Heater"
Which means that the heating element is open curcuit. Which menas......
Either the heater element has a wire off at the back, or more likely the heater element is burned out.
They are easy to replace. Pull the machine out and remove the rear inspection plate at the bottom of the body (I think this machine has one!, sorry if it doesn't).
At the bottom of the drum, you will see a atainless steel cover, about 4 inches limg and a third of an inch wide, with rounded ends. There will be 2 spade connectors with wires in them (1 either end of the plate) and a 10mm nut in the centre. The nut tightens up a squeeze plate inside that crushes up a rubber seal to hold it in place. Undo the nut fully (you may have to push the little stud bolt that is now exposed in a little to free it off) The element should now withdraw if you grab hold of the spade connectors and tug a little to break the seal before you withdraw it.
Replacement should be the reverse of removal.
Google "Hoover washing machine heating element" to find yourself one on line, or ho to your local Hoover parts stockist

Error code e005 means the temperature sensor has gone bad. To fix this error you'll need to replace the temperature sensor. It might have happened that the temperature sensor wires have been disconnected from the main board. To replace the temperature sensor you'll need to disassemble the washer and inspect the drum's bottom for the temperature sensor. Also check the wires coming to the sensor fro any cut.
Please post back for any further assistance.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

The tacho coil is on the motor and is fitted at the opposite end of the drive belt where the carbon brushes are. This error says something is wrong regarding the tacho coil but it doesn't specify exactly what. Possibilities are varied so unless you know what you are doing, and unless you can see something obvious like the coil has come away from the motor or the motor or drum has seized up it is probably better to call in a professional.
Resistance readings for tacho coils are usually quite high, so if you don't have a sensitive enough meter it could appear to be open circuit when in fact it's reading over 150 Ohms or more and may be ok.
In conjunction with a magnet fitted on the end of the armature shaft each time the motor does a revolution it can be counted by the software or pcb through the tacho coil. This information is used to judge and control the speed of the motor at all times.
If the coil is open circuit the washing machine would lose al control of the motor and in the past the motor would often spin uncontrollable causing damage to the washing machine. These days if an open circuit or missing tacho coil (they can fall off the motor) is detected the machine will stop working and report an error code.
