Question about Hoover AL120 Front Load Washer

Open Question

When i started myu Hoover AL120 washing machine it filled with water, the drum turned once, then it stopped. It wouldn't click onto the programme or something i guess. Anyway i got it going eventually (i have no idea how) and it went through the cycle as normal. However i tried it again whilst my mother was around, and this time after turning once and stopping again, the dial on the machine starting turning around, and wouldn't stop. Eventually we managed to get it going, but then it washed my clothes for 4 hours!! i managed to get it onto the spin programme, and that went forever too. Please help!!

i assume you're having problems with (probably hot) water intake into your machine. if so- either hot or cold-or both). there are 'semi-circle' mesh inserts at both your hot and cold water connectors on the back of the machine- you'll need to move your machine, if needed to allow access to these connections (where your hoses screw on). then, if you have shut-offs for the water supplies to your washer, turn them off! expect a little leakage from the hoses! if no shutoffs- turn off main water supply and open up an outside faucet, until it drains down! you may want to unfasten the water lines to the washer, and keep them elevated for a while until the water drains from them! (after doing the previous things!) you'll see- in the inlet s a mesh screen, see if they're 'crudded up' with mineral deposits- if so, get a hat-pin or some thing similar and pry them out- use an old toothbrush to loosen any deposits you see clogging them, and tap them to remove deposits! perhaps place them in a vinegar solution to help dissolve them! when they're clean- replace them- re-connect water lines- hand tight- or a little more- don't break the nylon outside threaded connectors on the back of the washer, or your looking at a more expensive and tedious job!
turn your shut-offs on, or your outside main shut-off, and hopefully, your drum will fill with great vigor!!
don't forget your outside hose faucet, if you needed to 'drain' it down! if 'outflow'- drainage is the problem then it could be a small article of clothing, or junk, in your drain pump- could also be a failed drain pump- you didn't specify whether it was input or output. just guessed!
good luck!!

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.

The functions has stoped but the door is not getting open.the model is hoover nextra.what i should do to get the door open?


switch off at the wall then manually drain the water using the (emergency drain outlet near bottom) if your model does not have one of these turn on and off at wall then set the wash programme to drain only this will be indicated in the manual of on the programme guide on the front panel.


Now your door should unlock once the water is drained.

Am 120 hoover. does not spin or slow tumble.the motor is ok and has power to it. I have cleaned the printed circuit brd. connections and checked the water level switch.


If you have not already done so, check the brushes in the motor, and replace if they are less than 3 or 4mm long.
If still no go, then I would suspect the control board/programmer as being the culprit.

Hoover 200m, keeps letting water in, will not advange to wash cyc


Your outlet hose is too low at the back of the machine tie the hose at about the level as your inlet hose eg to where your inlet hoses are festened and then let the remainder of the hose go to your outlet as usual.that should work Kind Regards Stefan.

When I put the washing machine (Hoover Six 1100) on it takes the water into the drum then nothing happens. There's a kind of clicking noise at the switch as if it's trying to do something. I have tried...


Hiya
the problem with your washing machine seems to be that once the water has entered the machine it is not going on to turn the drum. This Probelm is that the carbon brushes on the motor are worn. If you remove the back panel you will see the motor at the bottom of the drum. remove the motor and and you will seee two black holders either side of it remover the screws from it and replace with new ones.

hope this helps please rate if it helps.

Cheers Washdoctor
