I am not an expert on hoover - mainly hotpoint...but..

To empty your machine of water reset the programmer to Final spin. the machine should empty normally.

On hotpoint if you have a fast flashing light its most likely to be 1 of 2 things.

1. The belt from the motor has broken. (price for belt is less than 20 pounds.)

2. The brushes in the motor have worn down too much to make the drum turn. Look underneath the washing machine to see if black power (Carbon) is deposited under the motor.
(Price for set of brushes is less than 20 pounds)

Labour should be no more than half an hour by anyone decent.

Hi, do you know where I can get an instruction manual for a Hoover HNL6166 Washing machine?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) 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. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Good luck,
John C.

How do you remove the filter for a Hoover washing machine Optima Nextra Model HNL 6166?


I included a link on Youtube to my Nextra where I show how I clean the filter (watch it from 08:55 onwords). Just remove the kick strip and unscrew (philips screwdriver needed) the little screw on the filter itself, then turn it anti-clockwise but while you're doing this make sure you insert the kick strip underneath to gather the residual water. Repeat this operation 3 o 4 times until the sump is totally empty, make sure you don't let the kick strip fill up too much otherwise you'll be spilling water all over the place, so just turn the filter clockwise everytime you want to stop the trickle of water. It's not too complicated and it won't be too messy if you follow these instructions carefully. Good luck ;-)

Water not draing away and machine is not spinning


Empty your machine manually by lowering the drain hose into a bowl or bucket. Then remove the kick plate and check the filter for blockages.Before replacing try the machine on drain to see if the pump is running, if problem persists there may be a blockage in the pipe from the drum to the pump.
