No tumble just spin faults on Hoover WDM 120

Machine suddenly started to spin after filling with water at the beginning of each cycle and during drying cycle when tested. Found burnt out connections on motor control board and replaced it but still has same fault. No tumble just spins instead. I think the contacts in the controller may have stuck together but would like any help if possible before I go down this line. Brushes checked and OK no other obvious faults

    Which connections are you talking about? The motor connections or the motor PCB connections? I have checked just about everything possible and to no avail.

    All connections checked decided to replce the machine as I can be sure that spending a small fortune on a part will clear it. Thanks for yur help.

My wahser just stopped working it filled with water and then started agitating and then all the sudden stopped please help

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water

    Hoover hpe 236. water not draining, stops mid cycle, lights flash

    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.

    Codes and holes

    Hi mandystreet,
    I’m an owner like you; from what you describe I feel you have a clutch issue if you’re machine is a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW. I'll bet it completes the spin cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. Here is what is happening
    See this post for a step by step process to remove the clutch. Try a maintenance clean up of the One-way Roller Clutch bearing and see if that will get you back in service, if not I would do a Clutch replacement.
    Your machine is shutting down the spin cycle with dc and UC errors so your Tub Displacement Sensor is working as designed.
    From the Service Manual page 12;
    During fill cycle – If machine tumbles and spins simultaneously replace clutch assembly.
    During spin cycle – If machine tumbles and spins simultaneously replace clutch assembly.
    You can check this out by turning off the water supply lines if you check during water fill cycle. Lift the washer top from the base and observe the action during water fill or spin cycle. The Service Manual will show you how to raise the washer top from the base.
    This is happening because the clutch One-way Roller Bearings are sticky, slightly rusted. When the machine enters spin cycle the agitator shaft is slightly engaged because the one-way roller clutches are dragging this will cause the agitator shaft to rotate in spin cycle spinning the tumblers slightly. In this condition the wash load is tossed about while the wash basket begins to spin up. This will cause the Tub to become unbalanced and the tub starts making greater swings.
    This continues until the TDS (Tub Displacement Sensor) signals an unbalance condition to the Control Board and shuts the cycle down with a dc or UC unbalance errors. If the TDS fails in this mode the machine would likely walk across the floor until it unplugged itself or ended in a self-destruct.… :)
    A WD-40 clean up and re-lube may get you back in service. Just follow this posting step by step. If you are not a DIY type direct your service repair to this e-mail to help speed you to repair and control cost. You can redistribute the wash load until the cows come home and you will continue to fail with UC or dc unbalance errors…. Fix the clutch issue and your machine will be happy and so will the owner.

    Could be an iffy valve/ solenoid. One test is to see the empty machine slowly fills up with water, if you leave it for a few days. You can isolate teach valve by turning each feed off in turn. i t could be leaking all through the cycle. If it is flooding during the spin I'd check your pump at well. Hope this helps.

    Spin cycle issue

    if this is a frigidaire as in the healine , then see if the tub turns over at all. if not then it may be the inverter board located on the bottom right rear. If there is water left in the tub now that water should drain before it will fill again. check drain pump for obstruction/operation.
    for the inverter, there is a techsheet in the bottom attached to the wall, It gives info for checking it. Have a multimeter handy.

    check to see if your drain hose is too far down in the stand pipe this will siphon water out as it fills.
