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 ..

Regards Faggly

Hello. Since your machine is 18 years old and the agitation/spin is costly to repair I would definitely recommend a replacement washer.

Hoover 800 RLA washing machine spins slow or not at all.


Hi,
It sounds like the electric motor is dying!
Either pay a serviceman to come in to confirm this or buy a new machine.
New motors can cost anywhere from $380AUD to $600AUD.

Bearings on Hotpoint


the unit is only 18 nmohths old then what you need to do is contact the manufacture and explain to them what is happening and if they are having simuary isssues with that particular moidel number. Possibly they are and you may be able to have it repaired on their dime! 18 months is not that long for a washer to start having these problems if you have not abused the unit by overloading the washer or over filling it with soap. Good Luck
