Hi i have a hoover washing machine hnf 6127 it functions perfectly but wont spin the drum goes round on the wash cycles but will not pick up speed on the spin i have checked the filter is not blocked

If it is not picking up speed on the spin cycle then it is the motor or the belt. check the belt first for proper tension and make sure the motor has the proper output. I think something is slipping and not transferring torque to the tub.

Washing machine fills with water but then won't wash, spin or drain

Hi Claire if your beko washing machine wont drain or has a spin problem then you have to check the carbon brushes first.

Also check all waste pipes are clear and inspect the pump I have included this video below.

At our website I am doing self diagnostic videos on these beko's as we speak so all tutorials will be in this link below

you might find this test video helpful but only do it if you have checked the motor

Clothes come out dingy with a sour smell.

Hi,

Unfortunately you do not say the make and model but I'm going to make some suggestions anyway!

The first sounds silly but check that the washing powder IS actually going into the machine and that the whole wash, rinsing (with conditioner- which should smell nice!) and spinning cycles all complete OK. Presumable the water is getting hot enough else the machine would not continue its wash cycle.
What is left is the possibility that the waste water is not clearing the machine properly. This could be caused by the drain motor lint tray/filter being blocked. So many problems are caused by this simple little thing!
In any case I would check the filter which, on front loaders (and possibly top loaders) is normally found behind the front lower panel. I would also advise cleaning this filter on a regular basis- every 3- 6 months maybe.

I hope this cures your problem!

Cheers,

John C

LG Washing Machine stops spinning in mid cycle

IE:

• Water supply is not adequate in
area.
• Water supply taps are not
completely open.
• Water inlet hose is bent.
• The filter of the inlet hose clogged.

Solution:
Check another tap in the house.
Fully open tap.
Straighten hose.
Check the filter of the inlet hose.

UE:
• Load is too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The appliance has an imbalance
detection and correction system. If
individual heavy articles are loaded
(bath mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, after several
attempts to restart the spin cycle the
machine will stop and the error code
will be displayed.

Solution:
Add 1 or 2 similar items to help
balance the load.
Rearrange load to allow proper
spinning.
UE:

No Spin Cycle

Your machine won't go into spin cycle most probably because it awaits for pump to start extracting water out of the basket. If the "Door Locked" light is on th an it means that either filter, pump or drain hose are clogged (unless pump burned). Turn off machine, unplug the machine, clean the filter, check for foreign objects inside filter and pump housing and finally check/unclog the drain hose.

Spin Cycle quit and just hums

You may have a drain error problem.  The unit will not go into spin if the water cannot be extracted properly.  Check your filter screen to make sure that it is clear.
