Question about Hoover Nextra HNL 3166 Z Front Load Washer
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: No draining on washing machine
I am not an expert on hoover - mainly hotpoint...but..
To empty your machine of water reset the programmer to Final spin. the machine should empty normally.
On hotpoint if you have a fast flashing light its most likely to be 1 of 2 things.
1. The belt from the motor has broken. (price for belt is less than 20 pounds.)
2. The brushes in the motor have worn down too much to make the drum turn. Look underneath the washing machine to see if black power (Carbon) is deposited under the motor.
(Price for set of brushes is less than 20 pounds)
Labour should be no more than half an hour by anyone decent.

If this is a mechanical timer, it is probably in need of replacement. Be sure that there is no impediment to movement of the knob. You might get lucky by removing the knob and squirting in a small amount of WD-40 or similar solvent.

I included a link on Youtube to my Nextra where I show how I clean the filter (watch it from 08:55 onwords). Just remove the kick strip and unscrew (philips screwdriver needed) the little screw on the filter itself, then turn it anti-clockwise but while you're doing this make sure you insert the kick strip underneath to gather the residual water. Repeat this operation 3 o 4 times until the sump is totally empty, make sure you don't let the kick strip fill up too much otherwise you'll be spilling water all over the place, so just turn the filter clockwise everytime you want to stop the trickle of water. It's not too complicated and it won't be too messy if you follow these instructions carefully. Good luck ;-)
