    There is a regular thump when the spray commences starts during the spray rinse cycle and during the spray spin cycle.


    There is no thump during the spin cycle.

    Recently the cold water inlet valve was replaced.

    The washing maching is of the Whirlpool top loading type.

It would appear that a Hoover Premier 710 is a basic 4kg top loading washing machine. Often top load washing machines would have 3 or more suspension (spring) system/shock absorber that are responsible for maintaining the upright balance of the outer tub. If the washer has been in operation for some time, it is likely that these support/suspension/spring may have developed a fault. In some other instances, it could be the mounting points of these suspension/spring that may require looking over. It would be necessary to open the back and inspect all components of the suspension system. Additionally, if one is found defective, it may be to your advantage to replace all so as to impose an equal tension/support to the tub.

Alternately, in some versions/models, it could simply be the balance sensor switch that is false triggering. Again, this would require opening the unit and determining if this switch/sensor is defective.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's noisy
It leaks
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
It's overfilling
It's underfilling
The water temperature is incorrect

My washing machine (hoover VHF 710 front load) does not take up fabric softner from the compartment. thanks

Could have something clogging the port. You're 110% sure you're following the directions EXACTLY as you're supposed to?

Reason I ask is because it can sometimes look as though it should go in one spot, only to read the instructions and find that it actually goes in another.

Kenmore Elite HE4T Washing Machine Diagnostic Test Didn't complete and clothes aren't spun as dry as in the past I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T washing machine and I noticed that recently it isn't getting all of the clothes completely dry from the final spin cycle. Thus, the dryer has to run through two cycles to get the clothes dry. I did a bunch of research and made sure there weren't any kinks or blockages in the drain lines; and opened up the bottom of the washer and cleaned out the drain cleanout. I found a few pennies, but everything seemed to be working ok. I ran a load and had the bottom open so that I could make sure the motor, drain and belt were all working properly. The drain does get the water out of the washer, so the clothes aren't sitting in water, they just don't seem to be spun as fast or as long as they used to. I always put it on the "extra high" spin setting no matter which type of load I run. So, I found a way to run the diagnostic test on the washer and it went through C0-C5 (the agitation step) and all worked great, until it wouldn't come out of C5 after at least 10 minutes and go thru C6-C8. I had to cancel the diagnostic test and hit the "drain and spin" button to get all of the water back out of the washer. BTW, the "drain and spin" seems to get the clothes a bit drier than when I have it run through the "normal" cycle with the "extra high" spin. If anyone has any other thoughts, I would really appreciate it. This unit is in a small space with the dryer attached so to take it out and do repairs is a pretty big hassle. It has had a new control board and two new fill valves in the 10+ years that I have owned it. Questions I have: 1.should I remove the entire drain pump to make sure there isn't anything lodged in it? 2. could it be the belt slipping slightly and keeping the spin from reaching its 1200 RPMs? 3. Anything else I may be missing???
