Question about Hoover H130E Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Incomplete programme cycle

This one has got me baffled. The main drum supports on my Hoover H130E failed as a result of corrosion - a common fault as they are alloy attached to a stainless steel drum - electrolysis does its worst. I had to dismantle the machine to effect the repair. Prior to this fault the thing worked perfectly. Now it seems to have a fault with the way it works through a programme. Basically, it often does not initially take in wayer although the drum starts to agitate. Eventually it will take a bit in but nothing like enough. Eventually it pumps out but then shuts down - all lights off and no spin. I have checked the brushes - they are absolutely fine. Moreover, the pressure switch does not appear to have any effect. Even with the flexible tube removed which should cause the machine to overfill, it barely takes in any water. All hoses are connected and there is plenty of pressure - no blocks or kinks. If you select the rinse cycle, it pumps out and then shuts down as above. If you select the spin cycle, it pupmps out, agitates but no spin. Every now and again it works through a programme ok but this is now very rare. Everything is connected up ok. Any ideas?

    Hotpoint WF530 washing machine. Programme does not complete. Water does not empty. Water does not pump out (drain). Intermittent problem.

    Is this the main memory programme board?

I have a hoover vision tech washing machine and the belt keeps slipping off.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but 99% of "Belt coming off" problems are a result of the main bearings goingin the drum. I'll take a guess that the spin has become substantially noisier recently (As the bearings fail). When this happens the drum, and therefore the pulley on the back of the drum shaft, starts to rotate off true and as a result, the belt gets out of line and falls off. Price to do bearings is usually pretty much an uneconomical repair at about £140

Drum noisy and appears to be jumping all over the place

There is a three-legged yoke that is behind the spinning drum. Sounds like it's on it's last leg, and will soon comletely break off. Big do-it-yoursef job, suggest repairman or new machine with warranty.

Hi the belt on our hoover hnl 6166 nextra will not stay on. The motor and the drum seem to be out of alignment and there are no broken screws or bolts or wobbles. Any ideas please? Thanks Robert.

I would suggest that the drum is out of alignment because the main bearings have failed, or the drum shaft has collapsed due nto corrosion.
Spin the drum by hand, and listen for any noise, there should not be any, and see if the drum rotates centrally in relation to the outer drum

Into the spin dry cycle a loud hammering noise appears. Immediately goes away when powered off and drum speed drops. Can you please advise. Regards Geoff


When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...

Hotpoint aquarius wm64 loud banging noise when spinning with full load no noise when spinning empty i have found small pieces of plastic inside drum

Several possibilities here.
First and fore most is the drum support or main drum bearigs are failing., more likely to be drum support
The pieces of plastic you refer to are from inside the outer drum, because what is happening is the inner drum is catching the outer drum, and breaking the plastic inside.
You are going to have to strip it down to determine the exact cause, what I expect you will find is that the alloy 3 legged drom support has corroded away,a nd the drum has come loose.

Hope this helps you solve your problem
