After far more research than I usually have to do, It seems that E16 means "O/C Heater"
Which means that the heating element is open curcuit. Which menas......
Either the heater element has a wire off at the back, or more likely the heater element is burned out.
They are easy to replace. Pull the machine out and remove the rear inspection plate at the bottom of the body (I think this machine has one!, sorry if it doesn't).
At the bottom of the drum, you will see a atainless steel cover, about 4 inches limg and a third of an inch wide, with rounded ends. There will be 2 spade connectors with wires in them (1 either end of the plate) and a 10mm nut in the centre. The nut tightens up a squeeze plate inside that crushes up a rubber seal to hold it in place. Undo the nut fully (you may have to push the little stud bolt that is now exposed in a little to free it off) The element should now withdraw if you grab hold of the spade connectors and tug a little to break the seal before you withdraw it.
Replacement should be the reverse of removal.
Google "Hoover washing machine heating element" to find yourself one on line, or ho to your local Hoover parts stockist

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Hoover's 'e03' states 'drain timeout'- probably a blocked filter or even jammed drain motor/pump.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
