Question about Hoover Washing Machines
Its more likely to be the heater element the temp sensor is fitted to this, remove the rear of the unit and at the bottom of the back of the drum there is a nut and either side there are 2 wires remove them and undo the nuts first nut holds the earth second nut remove but not all the way, un clip the connector for the thermostat, with all wires out of the way now push on the nut as to push into the washer and then pull on the 2 parts were the wires were it will be stiff to move. when it comes out wipe around the hole and clean it before fitting new element. fitting the element in side there is a metal plate the element has to fit into this, best way to fit it right is to make the element end at an angel when fitting. when its fitted it should be flush, tighten the nut until its a nice snug fit with no movement. then refit all wires and earth wire and nut. check everything is done and looks the same as it was when you started. you are now done. put back on and washer ready to use.

Sorry I'm way late with this but I've only just noticed it. Unplug the machine from the mains! Remove the lid (with a torx screwdriver) and you'll notice a small circular device with 2 leads attached on the top of the machine, in the centre there's a small button, press it and it should click......you've fixed it This is a thermal cutout safety device designed to switch the drying heater off if it becomes too hot. The probable cause for this is that you've over filled the machine and the air didn't circulate freely. as a rule of thumb, dry 1/2 as many clothes as you wash.

Hi there, my washing machine was doing the same as the one you have mentioned.
I bought a replacement timer from the website highlighted below. It has done the trick and every programme works properly now.
A competent DIY person can change one of these easily and will take about 30 minutes to do.
The new part looks slightly different but it carries the same part number.
The price £24.99 + £4.98 delivery.

I had the same problem. My husband checked the carbon brushes attached to the motor and ran the machine on spin. The brushes were sparking so he assumed they were worn and replaced them and hey presto machine works fine now. The brushes cost 23.99 and were just bought from a local shop but can be bought online cheaper. Hope this helps solve your problem. Essex

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
