I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, and this at first sounds like motor carbons, the belt needs to be placed on from the bottom motor pulley first the onto the drum pulley last, not easy to describe in words, anyway start with the carbons, then if they ok there is a module (main PCB circuit board) normally on Hoover washes located top of machine inside front right corner in a plastic casing, look for burn marks. work safe with electrics, always unplug first

Will fill up and aggitate then nothing i have clothes in it as we speak its full with water but wont do anything else

When you lift the lid up and down you should hear a clicking noise, if you dont then the lid switch is bad. If the lid switch is ok then you probably have something stuck in the drain pump.

Making noise???

If it happens right away on the spin only setting, sounds to be something clogged in the pump....common things bra wires, hair pins, nails, screws..etc. Only way to access the pump is from the rear of the unit reaching through to te front....pain in the but to techs...I'd suggest if it makes the noise and drains slow to have a tech come out and fix your problem....but if you want an adventure unplug unit and empty the water, take the rear panel off and remove the hose from the tub(screw clamp) and reach inside with your fingures and see what you feel...may need to take hose completly off. reassemble and test with an empty load...fill with water and sure to check for leaks afterwards

Can you see water in the drum ?,No water = no action Check water supply

If there is water in the drum does it drain out at some point.

Sequence = Fill, Agitate, Heat, Wash, Drain, Spin etc.

If it fills then it may be a belt has snapped and the drum cannot turn , need to take the covers off to look.

Remove power before taking covers off !!!!

If the belt is OK then it may be the heater which has gone open circuit, try a cold wash or a rinse cycle to test that.
