Hoover Wdyns654D Keeps Filling Even On Spin Cycle


Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I would appreciate some help with solving this problem if possible

When starting any cycle the machine fills with water as normal.

The inlet valve solenoid then pulses open and closed throughout the wash cycle, resulting in an overfill.

Even on the spin cycle the inlet solenoid is pulsing open and closed and is letting water in.

I have checked the pressure tube for leaks and replaced the pressure switch for a new one.

I can empty the drum of water by putting it on a spin cycle, the pump will eventually empty the drum even though the inlet valve is still pulsing.

I did notice something odd today, when the programme selector was in the off position one of the digital LEDs was flashing, not the complete digit only the top bar of the first digit on the control panel, then several other LEDs flashed in a random pattern only for a brief period, it reminded me of the close encounters film.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Low insulation faults on pumps can cause weird faults like this but there could be an insulation fault elsewhere or a dodgy connection in the pcb or something else. It's not necessarily a serious fault but you really need to find an engineer to trace this one

Thanks for the reply Andy, I did give the connections a good wiggle, took them off and re- seated them but to no avail I'm afraid, considering the cost of a Hoover engineer call out is £120, what and how would he go about finding such a fault?

Low insulation faults are diagnosed using a special meter (megger) which puts 500 volts (DC) through the machine and tests to see if any of it leaks to earth and you can test individual parts to see where from. There are engineers costing a lot less than Hoover on my find an engineer page http://www.washerhelp.co.uk/book_washing_machine_repair.php
