sounds like solinoid fault

The filter is to be found at the bottom front left of washer behind a removeable plastic trim, if you can see a screw in the filter cover, undo this, and turn filter anticlockwise to remove.
If no filter at front, then remove rear panel of washer, and remove large black hose fastened to drum, check for blockage here, and check the pump at the same time.

If your machine will not start or complete the programme..
  • The plug, the socket and the switch, if necessary, with another appliance.
  • The fuse in the plug.
  • That the door is closed.
  • That a programme is accurately selected.

If you have not already done so, I suggest you remove the motor, and check the brushes for wear.

Could be that the heater element is not working, therby prolonging the wash programme, if it works o/k on a 30 or 40 degree wash, then it is more than likely to be the j heater.
There could be other factors that could cause your prob.
Please leave feedback.

most likely cause is the carbon brushes in the motor are worn.

Hoover AAA160... | Answered on Nov 01, 2009

It is very likely you need to replace the motor brushes. These are the electrical conections in the motor that wear after a time. They are fairly cheap, uses-replaceable, and available from online appliance specialists.
Turn off water and unplug before removing top/ back pannel to access motor. ***** CHECK MOTOR TYPE BEFORE ORDERING PARTS ******

If you cant pull wire out from inner drum with long nose pliers, Remove heating element and use torch to inspect bottom of washer. Most of the time the obstruction makes its way to the bottom. Use whatever tool necessary to remove spring.

be sure that BOTH water hoses are on and providing water. Your description sounds like typical situation: Dad gets water bill and freeks out, turns off hot water to laundry...SOOOO, when the laundry needs THAT hose, it just stops and waits ...if no water, no go..

Check belt is not broken, by taking off the back plate at the back of the washer

Hi John,
it has been a while since i worked on one of these, but I might be able to talk you through it, first make sure you have the correct bits to replace. i.e. the inside of the handle and the latch match the same that is on that you can see before you go any further.
using a torx size 15 I think remove the two screws on the door hindge, and then remove door by pushing up by a 1/4" then the hindge should pull away from the machine. using a torx size 10 then proceed to remove the four screws from the inside of the door frame, ease the door pannels appart and the glass bowl and lock should be exposed. there should be a further two screws holding the latch in place, just be careful when taken these out as they may be under load from a spring, note the positions of the latch and replace all back in reverse order.

If you have checked condition of carbon brushes in motor and they are ok.Check the valve at the back of drum(turn of and disconnect power supply) this valve is situ at the bottom of rear of drum. it may look like a small plastic bottle with a rubber pipe that goes up to the top of machine. undo clip and pull it out carefully, use a pipe cleaner to clean out inside of drum and wash and rinse out valve. Replace in order of dismantling. only a small job. One tip if you can is to tip machine backwards draining out any water and gunge from back of drum after cleaning out. Good luck, and let me know how you get on.

water drain problem (check drain hose and pump)

Hoover AAA160... | Answered on Jul 30, 2009

yes most certainly, with leaks it is either the seals or cracks in hoses or rust holes in wash cylinder, but most likely the first too because of being a fairly new model

Basically this is what they call a demo screen.
The only way to make it operate is in the manual.
If you don't have one then try downloading one from the hoover website.
