Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Wont spin Hoover Family 1300 washing machine seems to go through the cycles but doesn't spin. We have removed the front plug and there were some bits in there, like a plastic curtain hook and buttons. We are trying it again. I have seen comments about the motor brushes needing replacement. Is this a likely cause of the problem? Thanks Peter

Re: Wont spin

Well yes it could be.... and on a hoover usually is..

but could also be that machine is not draining properley and there fore the pressure switch which affects the final spin is not allowing the machine to spin thinking that there is still water in the machine....
hope this helps any questions dont hesitate to ask...cheers

Hi, My Hoover 600MB top loading washing machine is approx 8 years old. Recently it has occassionally not fully spun out - clothes still wet at end of cycle. Now it also often doesn't agitate - just...

Have a look for coins etc stuck in the drain pump or the tub outlet hoses especially where they fit onto the tub. If a coin or other foreign material blocks the water flow when draining , these machines wont spin properly.

My Hoover Ultracare 1300 washing machine has just stopped before the spin - full of water. I have tried several options but can't get it to move at all from that. It will rinse and move clothes around, but...

Yes. the pump may be blocked. look at the bottom of the washing machine front and you will see a flap undoo this and take out any bitts stuck in. Caution. Make sure the washing machine is un pluged and when you unscrew that plug. all of the water will come out of the machine. Best to do it outside. If that dose not work it means the pump has blown.

I have a Hoover 550 MB Top Loader washing machine . The cycle won't move from wash to spin . it doesn;t progress out of wash cycle , it stays there forever .

Will the unit spin if you manually turn the timer dial to spin? If so, remove power, remove the clock motor from the timer, and inspect the clock and mating timer gearing for debris or damaged gear teeth. At the worst, replace the timer. You may be able to scrape or file the damaged teeth so that the timer will progress.

PE235 would not spin or empty. Now it wont cycle either

Check the filter at the bottom of the machine ,right hand side behind the plastic cover along the bottom. You may find a blockage in there.

Our hoover ultra care 1300 large load washing machine spin fault

The most common cause of machines stopping mid cycle is not draining. Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at the bottom.
If this is not the case please post back for further assistance.

you need to access your drain pump and check it for an obstruction but when you pull the hose off keep in mind it might have a lot of water in it i usually use a shop vac and pull all the water out through the drain hose before removing the hose or opening the pump sorry i cant be more specific but ive never cleaned the pump on a hoover
