Loud noise in spin cycle


Could be the bearings.could be the belt. Could be the motor brushes.one way to point to bearing faults is to check for play when the machine is off.open the front door and see how much the drum displaces when moving it up and down.rotate by hand and it may replicate a grinding noise.if it feels quite tight then go onto inspect the motor area.if there is lots of carbon dust then it is more likely the brushes have worn to the metal sheath.cheap to replace.Complete refurb motors for most machine on eBay £30 + postage...also check the belt for wear against housing and springs which hold the concrete block in place.

Control module probably faulty, this could have failed due to motor problem check for worn carbon brushes in motor.

Drum Does not Rotate


the carbon dust that you mention ? on the drivebelt will//may have come from the electric motor carbon brushes especially as you sy machine is 4 yrs old you can diy inspect the brushes by removing the rear panel to access motor unplug the socket from motor then slacken belt and remove belt from pully remove the motor you will see location f brushes x2 opposit each other and normally held in position ont armature of motor by coiled pressure clip like watch spring and brush has wire embedded in it and other end a push on terminal? when these brushes wear down normally the fist indication is fast spin slows then eventually no rotation of drum? over a period of time? SO easy diy to renew brushes if as above worne down /not contacting armature? cost approx £5 here in n/west uk worth investigating and diy saving ££££s $$$$s? and i hope you have good luck hope this helps/inspires you?

Hi, I have the same problem with the same machine! I've tracked it down to a broken belt.

Hoover Vision 1600 drum not spinning?


Have the same problem, different model and it looks like I am outside 5 years spare parts. Probably just a belt or something from overloading. Also looks like it would nearly be cheaper to buy a new machine.You must have checked your pump???? What a rip off
