    hello people. i tried turning off the circuit breaker, checked the pressure switch, any blockages on the pipe, the motor brush. all is fine but today i noticed that the incoming current is ok, but i dont think there is sufficient current going elsewhere such as to the waterpump (only 40v). any ideas?

Have you tried turning off the circuit breaker that supplies power to the machine?
If you try that let the machine sit for a few minutes so it will lose whatever info there is.
Also, did you turn the water back on? It is not a good idea to run the pump unless there is water supplied to it.
What is the model number? I may be able to find troublehooting info for you.

    did you check to see if the motor is wired exactly the same?
    Is it a reversible motor(are there more than 3 wires in the box where it is connected?
    It seems like if you have 40v getting to the motor, that something is causing a voltage drop, unless the nametag on the motor says it is a 40v motor, which is doubtful. you should have 120v at the motor.

Sticking programme

This could be a problem with the controller as it is not waiting for water to warm before continuing.
Water element should be checked, as well as the water thermostat switch (which may be stuck on), possibly a substitute timer fitted to make sure you replace the right part.

Wash programme will not start

If your machine will not start or complete the programme..
  • The plug, the socket and the switch, if necessary, with another appliance.
  • The fuse in the plug.
  • That the door is closed.
  • That a programme is accurately selected.

Hoover HNL 6166 6kg A+AA 1600 washing machine....smell of burning like burnt rubbber...........

It is very likely you need to replace the motor brushes. These are the electrical conections in the motor that wear after a time. They are fairly cheap, uses-replaceable, and available from online appliance specialists.
Turn off water and unplug before removing top/ back pannel to access motor. ***** CHECK MOTOR TYPE BEFORE ORDERING PARTS ******

Stops halfway through wash cycle

be sure that BOTH water hoses are on and providing water. Your description sounds like typical situation: Dad gets water bill and freeks out, turns off hot water to laundry...SOOOO, when the laundry needs THAT hose, it just stops and waits ...if no water, no go..

yes most certainly, with leaks it is either the seals or cracks in hoses or rust holes in wash cylinder, but most likely the first too because of being a fairly new model
