Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor 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 guidance notes for checking both the drain 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!) and most 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. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

HW5513M Hoover washer dryer has a coin filter which I clean regularly, but washer door seal (and hence laundry) has wet fluff buildup. How do I prevent this?


There should be a lint filter somewhere in the dryer. Even with a lint filter you are likely to get accumulation around the door seal.

I am trying to repalce the drum belt on a Hoover D6530 tumble dryer. What is the easiest way to do this?


here is the procedure to remove the drum:
1) There are 3 screws on the rear at the top that hold a plastic strip, remove the screws and the strip.
2) Slide out the top panel to the rear.
3) In each of the top front corners there is a screw, remove it and slide the top trim bars back and remove.
4) Tilt the machine backwards; remove 3 screws from the front underside.
5) Remove 2 screws from the top panel behind the control panel trim (each one about 2" inboard of the corner screws in step 3.)
6) Take note / photograph the mains switch connections, controller PCB connections and control knob connection. Remove the connectors and the control knob.
7) Slide the control panel to the right and remove.
8) Open the door.There are 2 screws by each hinge on the left.There are another 2 screws to the right.Remove 2 screws on the hinge side that have the same heads and level with the screws on the right.Remove the 2 screws on the right.
9) Pull off the front panel. 10) Remove the lint trap.
11) Remove the 2 screws that secure the lint trap housing to the front support frame. (Look up at the lint trap from the floor, they are under the front edge of the lint trap housing, one on each side.)
12) Support the drum (you can use a solid cardboard box that just fits between the drum and the machine floor.)
13) Remove the 4 M4 head screws (8mm box spanner) that hold the front support frame to the chassis.
14) Lift the front support frame up and pull the lower part forward to release it from the chassis

I can't find the filter location for Hoover 202M 5.5kg washing machine. Can you pls help.


The filter is in the agitator. Remove the agitator cap, and you will find it down there. The filter is pretty much useless. Even though you might get some lint in the filter, if it wasn't there the lint would go down the drain. This machine has a neutral drain feature where the lint gets pumped out with the rinse water before the bowl turns, so preventing the lint from being stirred up nd put through the clothes.

How do I remove the agitator in a Hoover 500MD machine?


Most Hoovers have a 10mm bolt down inside the agitator. Remove the fabric softener dispenser from the top of the agitator, and look down the centre of agitator. You need a long extension socket to undo the bolt (anticlockwise). Be careful not to turn bolt too hard- sometimes the bolt is seized where it goes into top of gearbox, and if you turn bolt too hard, you can break the bolt. Once bolt is removed, agitator just pulls straight out

I can't figure out how to get all the lint/junk out of my bagless hoover mach 4.


After you remove the cup, remove the foam or hepa filter. Reach up inside, where the cup & filter go and there will probably be a piece with what looks like fins on it. Unlatch this. It is a prefilter, to catch the big stuff that gets past the cup.
