Question about Washing Machines
Can you help me? I have got a hoover nextra Optima HNL6166. Its not draining at the moment. I have checked the filter and the pipes and they are not blocked. Also the start button and the delay start button are flashing on and off.
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.
