Question about Washing Machines
Hiya ... and wow....you must have a museum piece... I would contact Hoover! ..lol... I take it we are talking an automatic and not a twin tub ?, and obviously you have checked the fuse and power source...
Seriously your problem could be a number of simple issues, did you notice any burning smell?... If it Is the... motor just making a humming noise..with a burning smell.. it may require motor replacing.. just basically worn out.......
Or it may just need the brushes in the motor replacing.... which if it does.. I would suggest a recon motor at the least to replace with it.. as it would be highly likely you would be repalcing that very shortly anyways!
Is the drum turning by hand noisily..... if not .. could just be belt that has snapped.... or if it is noisy then that could indicate the bearings have collapsed. which is least likeliest of all ...
I am astounded by its age and the fact its an Hoover... I Would obviously say it owes you nothing in terms of service.. and if you want to pay for repair then do so .. but I personally would look for a new washer and retire your old one ..
