Washing machine not working after power cut?

Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone can help me or maybe point me towards a forum before I dispose of the machine.

My washer drier died, so I got a secondhand one just to keep
me going. It worked just fine, then we had a power cut and next thing I know it just isn’t working anymore but it also won’t display an error code. It just beeps, whether off or on. It’s a Hoover Dynamic Next.

I would upload a short video of the panel but I don’t think videos are permitted, only images.

Any tips or ideas are much appreciated, of all months this is a terrible one for me to be replacing appliances left and right.

  • Thank you, I’ve read through them but I don’t think any apply as mine won’t start a cycle at all or display an error code, unfortunately.

    I’ll keep the link and show it to my partner when he comes around and see if it can help with anything, thank you!

    Have you unplugged it from the wall and left it for 30 mins or so before trying again ?

    I have, including overnight.

    My main worry is if it’s nothing to do with the machine but rather some sort of issue with the wiring in the kitchen. I’m afraid of getting now a *third* machine and something will fry it :(

    I'd have thought, very unlikely.
    You could always test this by running an extension cable from another room's socket. Or even from the 'cooker' point if it also has a 13A socket on it (if you do have a separately wired cooker point?)
    It'll either work or it won't.
    If it does work, don't be tempted to actually use the WM from this unless you know the ext lead is rated high enough (which it should be), fully unfurled, and not left unattended.
    But, almost certainly a fault in the WM itself.
    I'd ask Hoover about the symptoms, and explain the circumstances.

    We had a power cut years ago and our washer stopped working ,what had happened was it was just taking the washing powder in when the electric went off ad the washing powder went hard and blocked the feed tube to the drum ,the washers electronics thought the machine was over filled as it would not let any more water in ,i removed the top and found the fault ,i removed the rubber filling tube and took the plug of washing powder out ,rebuilt and job done.DO NOT FORGET TO TURN THE ELECTRIC OFF when working on any appliance.
    ITS NOT EASY TO GET EVERYTHING WRONG ,I HAVE TO WORK HARD TO DO IT!

    Don't know which exact model you have, and it surely cannot be this easy, but - hey - worth a try?
    Select 'Mixed All In One'
    Touch and hold "Temp Selection" until all the red bars light up
    Touch "Start Pause".
    See if it goes through a test cycle.

    Could this be true?!
    Open and close the WM door SIX times within 12 seconds = master reset on some machines - apparently.
    My hat is ready to be eaten if that works.
