Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a hoover 750LB 7.5kg washing machine. My washer was working well until last weekend when we moved house. Now when I use it.. The water from the tap doesnt stop flowing. If I open the lid, I can hear the machine stopping, but the water still flows. Could it be something to do with the hose itself? As the hot water works fine and stops flow when I open the lid. The cold water will stop when I manually turn off the tap then turn it on again. Please help!

What you have is a failed water valve, to test this just switch the hoses on the valve and turn it on hot and low level and see if the valve doesn't turn the water off. If the cold water coming out of the hot water valve shuts off then the cold selenoid is bad. these are a cheap and easy fix. You can do this yourself and save some money.I beleive the selenoids are around $10.00-20.00 US each. Here is a video of the repair. the valve looks like the picture below.

    If you find that the water valve is still not rurning the water off after you swapped hoses, the it will be the pressure switch, but let me know how the hose swapping goes before we spend time on the switch.

I have a Hoover washing machine, its a front loader, I don't have the exact model in front me at the moment. I recently moved house, and yesterday after re-plumbing my washing machine, I put the washing...

If water remains in the drum after the drain cycle, the unit will not go into the spin cycle. There may be a couple of reasons for your problem.
Make sure the drain hose is raised above the machine hose outlet to create a siphon effect. The drain hose needs to have a loop in it to work correctly. You can tie a string around the hose and hook it on the water valve creating a loop in the hose. Raise the loop of the drain hose so the top of the loop height is at the center of the washer drum.

Machine not taking the last fastest spin to drain the water.

the problem is that your machine is not emptying the water fast enough as the machine takes in a good deal more water on the rinse. clean the filter.

Washer wont fill up, keeps draining

If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty membrane switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.
