It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

I have a Hoover carpet cleaner that leeks the shampoo water onto the carpet, cannot control it


The machine is standing in the upright position with clean water in it. No power to the machine. If water is pouring out, again no power to machine, then the pump is cracked. I don't know the model number so I am thinking this has a gravity fed pump. It doesn't use electricity to work the pump. Once you pull the trigger water starts to flow. If the pump has a crack water will flow all the time. Hope this helps!

My Hoover washing machine 2305l sometimes dosen't


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hoover 2305L when I pull the dial out to start it wont start


Check the mains supply power to the mains switch. Now make sure that the poles are clean , use spray to clean the terminals-- with the power OFF.
Now if there is no power to the inlet valve when the start is pulled , the the program controller can be faulty. Make sure the door switch is working as it will working as a protection in not starting the cycle.

HI We have a Hoover 700LD washing machine that wont fill or wash. Will drain and spin. Any ideas? thanks


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to check your water inlet valve and make sure it is not defective. Check your water pump and make sure it is working right. The pump pumps the water into the washer.

My hoover washing machine wont spin and is full of water. model number is hnl 9146-z


It's a safety feature that doesn't allow the machine to spin when there's still water in the tub. The drain pump has probably failed and you would need to replace it (there are some good places online where you can buy appliances spare parts). Try to set your machine on a 'Drain' cycle and see if the pump works.
