Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a hoover nextra washer dryer model hnwl3126-80 I stopped using the dryer function 6months ago as it has started making a clunking noise. 2 weeks ago the same noise started when my washer was spinning. Yesterday i loaded up and took the kids to school got back home to a very strong rubber /electrical smell opened washer door and smoke escaped out of the top the clothes were damp and the powder had been used but clothes still dirty and smell of this burning smell. I have removed the back of the washer dryer and cannot see any visible problems. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated as I canty afford a new one.

SOURCE: Washer emitting burning smell and smoke on fast spin

Yes, the heating element is coming on when it shouldn't. A likely cause is the pressure pot (Level sensor sender unit) being blocked with sludge. You'll find this under the machine, either screwed to the RH side of the tub, near to the front of the machine secured by three Philips screws, or attached to the side of the big hose that goes from the tub to the pump,secured by a Jubilee clip, underneath the machine. disconnect the power and remove the pressure pot, in both cases it's a long rigid white plastic tube, from one end of which comes a narrow flexible plastic hose which goes up to the top of the cabinet and is attached to the pressure switch itself. This tube is likely to have a load of muck in it, as its bottom end. Clean this out, and if your element didn't burn out, then everything should now be fine.

Hoover nextra washing machine door wont lock / cycle start


sounds like the door lock mechanism. if this cannot signal it has engaged, to the board, no other function will work (you don't want the washer going with the door open, trust me :) )

User manual for hoover nextra tumble dryer


I have a Hoover Nextra washer/dryer machine. It has been working fine but 2 days ago it stopped taking water into the drum. When I put the machine on, I can hear water running into it and the water does go into the powder compartment and clears that. However, only a tiny bit of water is getting into the drum of the machine.
In case it is relevant, there is only one hose at the back, not 2 hoses like some machines have. I don't think it can be water pressure as it has always worked before.
I hope someone can maybe give an idea as to how to fix it as I have toddlers and need it fixed asap. Is there anyway we could fix it rather than have to call out a service engineer. If there is something we can try can you answer in simple language as we don't know much about washing machines.
Thanks very much

Program don't start, flashing ligths (start and "delay start" button) for 5 times.


What does the error code mean do you have any idea Is it mentioned in the Hand book. At any rate logic suggests a watewr supply problem that the first thing a washing machine needs - water. So a tap not turned on a Kinked hose An inlet valve solenoid failure- Three things for you to check
