Question about Hoover HTC243 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Hoover 500mb washing machine failing to spin.

Water fills fine and pumps out fine Agitates most times (However becoming a problem also - sometimes will just soak whole agitate cycle) Timer clicks okay but not always going to next part in the cycle Pump pumps out all water but keeps pumping Spin doesn't start (However we have tried opening lid and giving bowl a push start - this works occasionally). Tried cleaning filter, checked wiring and solenoids. Seem okay? Trying to clean under agitator. Have removed quantity of dirt and grime. Any other suggestions?

The load might be unbalanced, and will not spin at full speed as it could damage the machine. Try reloading the machine

Goodluck,

the clicking sound could be the brake arm worn its white and in the middle near the gear box,the reset is for water only.the outlet pump is at the back where the drain hose comes out.the filter is in the middle of the agitator just pull it out.check the belt isnt loose.

If you are certain that all pipes are clear, then you may wish to check the pressure pot & pressure switch ( & small hose joining the two as this could be telling lies to the program unit. If the machine is emptying but the switch fails to read the level correctly, it can cause the same sort of error problem. Pressure pots can fill with the "grey soap gunk" and switches pressure are a reletively common fault also. Good luck

Washer will not cycle


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Whirlpool Thin Twin randomly skips agitation during the cycle.


Did you ever figure this out? Mine agitates but instead doesn't start spinning and draining unless I open the lid. It then "clicks" and starts but it is strange that I have to do this to get it to spin.

Frigidaire FWT647GHSO when it gets to rinse first rinse cycle, it doesn't stop filling with water. It won't agitate or spin. It works well in the wash cycle, agitates and spins and advances


probably you've got something blocking the water pump from doing its job properly so check that the water pump is free running emptying all the water if not then there is a blockage in the pump normally ist a button, paper clip or other debris out of a trouser pocket eric

Washer does not seem to change cycles. Fills and agitates fine, but does not seem to go further than the first cycle.Suspect timer issue.


Good day,
If it fills and agitates and gets thru the first cycle, but won't pump out and spin, then it would be a bad lid switch. Check the following clip for more info.

HELP!! Washer machine wont work. Doesnt drain or spin. Clicks to drain and spin but nothing happens, the timer still counts down as if everything is fine.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

If the machine starts, fills and goes through its' agitate cycle fine, the problem is likely not in the motor or transmission.

This type of washer uses a reversible motor. When turning one way, the machine agitates the clothes.

When the timer gets to the spin cycle, the motor reverses, drives the pump (directly from the motor) for a period of time and then goes into spin cycle.

This appears then that is is either the connection to the motor itself or the timer.

The timer is driven by a separate motor on the control panel so if the contacts for the spin cycle are worn, the timer will move but the motor won't turn on.

Water doesnt pump out to start rinse cycle


Seems the timer is sticking at the drain cycle. Manually move the timer and see if this helps. If this works then the timer is bad.

Not sure if manifold is leaking


Leaks water...check the pump first. The fill valve and hoses may be the next step. See how to take apart info. With the use of plastic drain hoses on many machines today, this has become a common leak trouble maker. The drain hose can rub the wall or a pipe and this will rub a hole in the drain hose.

Machine fills with water & then clicks but goes no further. It will drain but no other function seems to work


That is probably a problem with the timer.

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Washer fills/agitates and stops prior to draining


    If pump works fine or still pumps out water, then it is a timer malfunction. Replace the timer and you should be fine. To locate a part number for your timer, refer to www3.sears.com with the model number off your washer.
