Question about Hoover HTC243 Top Load Washer

Open Question

Hoover 700LC top loader, fills with water, clicks over but does not wash then spins water out and fills up but only clicks then empties and spins. This goes on frequently but not all the time, sometimes goes ok after a rest. NOW, it does not make any sound at all as if it is not switched on, does not fill with water or anything. Need help, far distance to nearest town not sure if any repairers there. We put in a new microswitch but not the answer Would appreciate any assistance. Thank you

Check the lid switch for proper operation. If the switch is bad or not being actuated by the lowered lid, it will block operation of the machine.

If this machine has a motor that uses brushes, check them for damage, wear, or weak/distorted springs.

700LC will not spin

The older Hoover had a problem with the clutch drive seizing. Sometimes it was caused by the aluminium housing on the gearbox breaking or cracking. When this happens, the clutch pawl doesn't release the clutch gear properly. The clutch stays in the locked position and then it wont allow the tub to spin. Its not often the top bearing fails. A common sign of gearbox / clutch failure is a brown oily stain spread all over the inside of the cabinet in line with the bottom of the gearbox. This means that the gearbox has slowly filled with water through a failed gearbox seal and when it gets to this stage, its not an economical repair. Time for a new washer unfortunately.

My Hoover 500M top loader is very noisy on the spin cycle intermittanly. It sounds like a faulty or dry bearing, maybe when the water pump is emptying the bowl. The noise stops as soon as the spin cycle...

First I would bench check the water pump and see if it is operational or not. If it is then I would check the transmission. When it is in the spin cycle it switches to the high speed, so if you hear the grinding only in the spin cycle it could be the high speed gear.

Do you have any indication of a transmission leak? Fluid on the floor or on the transmission?

Try replacing the large capacetor. This is called apon to give the motor the kick it needs to go into spin. For reference I include a picture to help you locate it.sparkyuiop.jpg

My frigidaire top loader fills with water at the beginning of the wash...then nothing. it just sits there full of water.

Hi, could be your timer motor, timer or water level switch, first push timer knob in and manually advance to wash or spin cycle (program) then pull knob, see if machine operates, let me know, then i can tell you exactly what's problem.also advance timer, to spin cycle (program) machine should pump out water, or you can lower drain hose into bucket and empty machine, you should empty machine and try again, let me know what happened, we can solved this together. good luck.
