    Yes the water pumps out

  • deanstorey Mar 16, 2008

    The switch is OK and the machine works fine for all other parts of the cycle. After it drains the water it doesn't start to spin. Is there a water level switch controlling when it should start to spin?

  • deanstorey Mar 16, 2008

    I checked through the connections on the motor and brake release solenoid and found the strip connector slightly loose under the motor. After I reconnected this I tested the macine and it functioned correctly.

    Thanks for all your help,



    Dean.

    the hoover washer has a lid switch that is probably faulty or needs adjustment

    the machine thinks that the lid is open or tripped out so check that for fault

  • william mikkelson Mar 16, 2008

    ok i am not shure on that

    to check remove air tube off p/switch if you hear a click you now know there is no pressure on p/switch try and see if spins if it does then p/sw is no good

    but i think maybe the timer is faulty or the brake motor is not disengaging transmission but if hat happened the adjitator would go around and around

  • william mikkelson Mar 16, 2008

    one other thing on your washer that you may find that is the fault

    if it has a power module after the timer that will be the most likely cause of problem as the module switches the power to the motor so replace that

SOURCE: hoover washing machine not spin drying

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

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.
