Question about Hoover Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Hoover VHD8142 stops whilst draining then the timer saver light and the 1200 lights flash. The machine does not drain away all the water. I cannot find what these lights flashing means in the manual, nor on the web. Any ideas?

I've just had exactly the same problem with the same model. Unlikely as it may sound, it's the heating element. Mine has just been replaced and everything is now working perfectly.

Machine sticks and 'timer saver' flashes. When turned off and onto 'drain' the lights shown on the video flash.


Switch off machine for an hour, press down all the panel buttons to drain any residual voltage to the board. Now when the power is reconnected and the machine is switched on, press down Start/Stop/Pause buttons.
If the fault does not clear, then check for dirt in the inlet and outlet , check flow and drain without water accumulating within. If not the control board is a suspect

Timer saver and 1200 lights flashing and machine doesnt finish cycle -- clothes all wet


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
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 spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
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.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
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!

Hoover VHD842- About 10 mins into the wash, the washer stopped and the 'timer saver' light and 1200 spin speed lights start flashing at the same time, approximately flashes five times then goes blank, then...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I'm interested in how you manage to drain the water away- is it by the filter cover? If not may I suggest carrying out the following- if you have not done so already ;-0)
(If you have -sorry. This will not help)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
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!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hoover hpe 236. water not draining, stops mid cycle, lights flash


Have you checked the pump filter, and or that the pump is actually working. if it spins o/k with no water in, then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump o/k, then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Hope this is of some help to you.

I have a hoover vhd8142 washing machine that stops mid cycle


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question $#@!
