Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Hoover HSW2125M washer-dryer which isn't happy. Last month it started filling with water; even when switched off, so I unplugged and disconnected it, but found that the (sole) water supply was connected to the hot water feed (rather than cold). I took the covers off and checked the pipes and pump for blockages or a faulty valve, but it all appeared fine. So I re-fitted the covers and gave it a test, and the wash cycle finished as expected; however the wash did not clean the clothes and it seems that the water had not been heated. This leads me to believe that the machine was only doing a wash cycle at the temperature of the incoming water. Is it possible that 2-3 years of hot water entering the cold feed has affected the element/thermostat or some other part of the machine? any suggestions? Many Thanks Rob

Hoover washer dryer Error Code E12 during dry programme. How can I fix?


E12 means a problem filling on dry cycle.

Unplug the appliance, take the top off and check that the plastic condenser below the fan is clear and clean.

If this is ok, the most likely fault is the triple valve isn't opening properly to feed water into the condenser.

I have a hoover hsw2125m washer dryer. the powder is not emptying from the drawer but i dont know how to check for blockages?


A lot of times the hose gets just clogged. What you do is get a tea pot, and boil some water. Then carefully pore some hot water slowly down the drawer, little by little until it breaks up the soap to unclog it. Another affective way is buy a can of air in a can. Compressed air in a can is used for many uses, such as cleaning a key board or lightly blowing out electronics, can get it at almost anywhere they sell computers. Then you do small burst of air in the detergent drawer. However I would try the hot water first, and save some hot water for a cup of tea as your patience of having it work. Thanks Mike

Hi, the machine keeps filling itself with water even when switched off? I'm guessing this is the double valve but am not exactly an expert. Any help is greatly apreciated. Thanks


If your machine is off and even unplugged then it could only be the valve not shutting off. If your intake hose filter screens are bad or not there the valve can get a flake of rust or mineral deposit from your pipes lodged in it causing it not to shut completely. Unplug the machine from the wall and if it is still flowing then you know there is no electrical circuit failure causing it to stay open. I have on occasion removed the valve, back flushed it and carefully opened the valve manually with a soft tipped tool while rinsing it out with success. If you do remove the valve take note of the wire connections and make certain the washer is unplugged before attempting the repair.

We have a GE top load washer with the model number WDSR2120J. It new (almost 13 months old so the warranty has just expired.) When we turn it on, it won't stop filling up when it is full. Bubbles then come...


Hello Friend, You either have a bad water level/pressure switch or your water inlet valve is bad. If you unplug the washer from the wall and the water stops filling into the washer, then it's not the water inlet valve. If it only continues to fill when wash cycle is started then you will need to replace the water level/pressure switch behind control panel. Also, the pressure supply tube connected to water level/pressure switch may have a hole in it or a bad connection, or possibly plugged up. This rubber tube must have an airtight seal at both ends to perform properly. be sure to check this item also. Happy to help, Tim.

I have a Plain Hotpoint washer,and it keeps filing with water on large load,but will stop on small load.Will continue to fill even with it unplugged, what could it be?


No it will not keep filling when it is unplugged.
The problem is probably due to a sticking water level switch, or a partial blockage in the water level sensing system. \you will probably need to call an engineer.

6 months old. Now no water will fill drum! Works as normal but no water!


Hurlewan Your washer is still under manufacturer's warranty which is one full year. If it has Kenmore's name on it you do not need proof of purchase. The only thing you need is your mother-in-law's home phone number at time of purchase because Sears keeps all their records based on phone numbers. Good luck, Gendos post back....
