I have an hoover VHD842 vision HD1400 washing machine that empties the soap trays and after about 30 seconds stops, I can drain it with no problem but it will not spin or wash.HELP.
Hi When it stops do you get any flashing lights?If so then count the number of flashes from them in between the pause and let me know. If it doesnt stop with flashing lights then will the drum turn at all? Regards

Hi daniel no flashing lights and if put on to spin to drain the water after the start will drain for 20 seconds and stop with no drum turning.
Ok what you need to do is pull the washer out and remove the back panel.There you will see the motor at the bottom. Just check the belt is still on there. If the belt is fine then you need to remove the motor.Then at the back of the motor either side are the carbon brushes.Remove these and see if they have worn down. If they are only a few mm long then they are worn and will need to be replaced.Then refit the motor and fingers crossed thats sorted it from there. So check them and see what you find.
