20 Most Recent Hoover Nextra 160 HNWF 3137 Front Load Washer / Dryer Questions & Answers

Ahaaaa... BALANCE your loads... true for Life too!

Also know some springs "age" and don't provide the "RESISTANCE" needed to keep your drum in place... so they may LOOK PERFECTLY GOOD, but are actually tired from constant stress.

Do your best to use SPRINGS DESIGNED for your washer!

YOU failed to include your model number so I can't be more specific than this.

sounds like the door lock mechanism. if this cannot signal it has engaged, to the board, no other function will work (you don't want the washer going with the door open, trust me :) )

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

Please score this solution accordingly and good luck!

Check the heating element Should read 28 ohms on a multimeter if shows open circuit. no reading then replace...

Either your heating element went out or your thermostat (which regulates the temp).
