When starting wash programme, detergent washed down but then water comes flooding out of the detergent drawer! I stopped programme, mopped up and seems that water level out of detergent drawer not dropping.
Advice please as looks as though there is either a blockage into drum or maybe there is a valve stuck? - so is there an easy way to release/rectify?

Re: Hoover Nextra washing machine - water backing up
If this is a front loader see that u use only washing powder for FRONT LOADING MACHINES. Also possible your detergent drawer is clogged with old dry detergent. Pull out the drawer and clean with tooth brush. Things shd be fine.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
A quick and easy way to find out which tray is which is to pull the detergent drawer out just so that you can see into it. Start a pre-wash and see where the water runs in, then advance to the main wash and observe. Finally start a rinse cycle and where the water goes in is where the conditioner/softener goes.
In a few cases I have come across, the pre-wash tray shares with the conditioner/softener part but the pre-wash powder goes in the front and the softener in the back.
Methinks you could also do with a manual!
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Hi Thanks for using FixYa. The start and pre-wash usually flash due to a clogged
drain hose or the water pump. You’ll need to drain the water out of the
base and also check to see if there's something
stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually
located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine). If the
drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a
frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Please
do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further
assistance. Thanks Rylee
my hoover nextra hnl 662 want wash or spin and the delay staart light flashes 5 times please help iv only had the machine a year and had nothing but trouble with it wouldnt recomend one of these washing machines to anyone jakki
The machine only allows a limited time for all the water to drain out before it starts spinning. If the is a blockage or obstruction in the drain hose or drain pump, the machine will not allow all the water to be pumped out and it will not spin. Check for any restriction especially under the sink/tub where the drain hose attatches to the drain spigot.
