Question about Hoover Washing Machines

Hoover 205 washing machine

Recently given a secondhand Hoover 205 w/machine, but no usermanual. Initially working OK, but it went out-of-balance on spin. Now nothing. No activity on any cycle setting. Have checked power point - OK. Have set Left-hand control knob to Reset. Still nothing.
Your advice please. Also, is a usermanual available for download or e-mail?

The actuator arm for the out-of-balance safety switch had become misaligned from the safety switch. As such, it had tripped but could not be reset.

Make sure washer is on a level surface and all four feet adjusted properly. A slight forward lean may help with this problem as the out of balance switch is at the rear.

Hoover washing machine HF7160E


I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, and this at first sounds like motor carbons, the belt needs to be placed on from the bottom motor pulley first the onto the drum pulley last, not easy to describe in words, anyway start with the carbons, then if they ok there is a module (main PCB circuit board) normally on Hoover washes located top of machine inside front right corner in a plastic casing, look for burn marks. work safe with electrics, always unplug first
