Question about Hoover PE235 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washing machine problem

We have an ancient Hoover top loading washing machine (not on the product list). When it starts a regular wash cycle it fills OK then just makes a wirring noise until it cuts out. Pressing the reset button just restarts the wirring noise.

I took off the front panel and manually rotated the bowl back and forth a bit. Then the machine works when I reset/restart.

This has happened several times. It seems like there is excess friction somewhere in the system, so that the drive belt is slipping. Is lubrication the answer and if so how?

Thanks.

Sure you need to lubricate. But change the belt, you get all sizes easily. The wiirring noise is usually when the belt is off, worn out likely.

Pl rate, thanks

    A thorough lube for all moving parts you can see, not the belt!!

Check owner's manual. The light issue should be covered. Is it possible the tub is over filled? If so the level indicator switch is not working right. I'd unplug for overnight to see if the electronics will reset. Service Technician may be needed.

first check the water is switched on to the machine. If it is then you most likely have a faulty water valve. Switch all power off and remove the top panel should be 4 screws or so. If it has 1 valve then replace it.

I have a Hoover top load 610 and it wont start wash cycle


These are a great little machine,I dont know why they have to go changing things.Anyway this sounds to me like the timer.It fills & the water cuts off so the inlet valve is ok.It drains so the pump is ok.It spins so the motor should be ok.Try it on other cycles like gentle or delicate & see if it agitates.I'm sure it will be the Timer.

The 7kg hoover will wash then stop agitating


There can be many reasons why the machine does not agitate. If it does not complete the cycle, then it can be a problem with the timer control, see The cycle doesn't advance .
If cycle goes on, but does not agitate, it can be the agitator and more, see It doesn't agitate or There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
