What does this fault mean that your Hoover washing machine may have?

So you've encountered an issue with your washing machine and don't know how to fix it? It might seem frustrating at first, as this malfunction prevents you from finishing your washing cycle and your laundry routine as usual. But we're here to help you and to tell you that you have nothing to worry about because this issue is solvable.

The error code e16 on Hoover washing machines indicates a problem with the water heating system, or more precisely, a fault in the heating element or resistor of your appliance. So in order to solve this problem, you first need to understand the possible causes:

  • A fault in the heating element or resistor: This component is responsible for heating the water in the Hoover washing machine. If the heating element or resistor is damaged or malfunctioning due to lack of maintenance, it won't be able to heat the water properly and will generate an error on the screen.
  • Issues with the temperature sensor: A sensor that doesn't accurately read the temperature or is improperly calibrated can send incorrect information to your washing machine's electronic board. This sensor measures the internal temperature of the drum, so it's crucial that it functions properly.
  • Problems with the internal wiring of your washing machine: The heating element is connected via several cables, and one of them may be faulty. This can prevent the electrical signal from being transmitted correctly and will cause errors in your washing machine.
  • Failure in the PCB electronic board: The PCB electronic board is responsible for managing all the functions of your Hoover washing machine, including the operation of the heating element and temperature sensor. If the electronic board isn't functioning properly, it can send incorrect information to the components and trigger errors on the screen.

Now that you know the causes of this problem in your Hoover washing machine, let's review all the solutions we have available.

If you carefully follow the steps we provide below, you'll likely be able to fix the problem yourself. Most likely, you'll need to replace the heating element, but it's not difficult to replace once you have the replacement part.

  1. First, let's turn off and restart the washing machine to let it rest for a while: This procedure will refresh your washing machine's sensors and may help eliminate certain temporary errors. To do this, you'll need to completely turn off your washing machine and disconnect it from the power supply for a few minutes. After the time has passed (about 15 minutes), turn it back on to see if the error has disappeared when you start a short washing cycle. If the problem persists, don't worry, we'll likely find the solution in the following steps.
  2. Clean the heating element or resistor that heats the water in your Hoover washing machine: You may actually need to replace this part, but it's very easy to do. However, before replacing it, we recommend visually inspecting and cleaning it to see if it can be salvaged. The resistor may be dirty, covered in limescale, or accumulated dried and stuck soap. You need to remove any dirt you can and anything that might interfere with the heating of this component. Perform preventive maintenance on this part and make sure it's clean and functioning properly. You can use a bristle brush to assist with this task. Reassemble it and check if the error has disappeared when you start a washing cycle in your Hoover washing machine. If the problem persists, replace the heating element or resistor with a new one compatible with your Hoover washing machine model.
  3. Check that the temperature sensor of your Hoover washing machine is in good condition: First, disconnect the washing machine from the power supply and locate the temperature sensor for inspection. To identify it, this sensor has an elongated aluminum tip and a cable that leads to a connector with about 3 pins. Use your knowledge of electronics and a multimeter to measure the resistance of the sensor. If you notice that it's outside the normal values, then you'll need to replace it with a new one.
  4. Inspect the internal wiring of your Hoover washing machine: Surprisingly, sometimes rodents see washing machines as a cozy refuge: dark and warm. Additionally, cables may be attractive to them as a food source or simply as a distraction. Therefore, it's important to thoroughly check the wiring that allows your Hoover washing machine to function. Check for any cut, bitten, or disconnected wires, and look for signs of burning. If you find damaged wires, make the necessary repairs. Take the opportunity to also examine the connections and make sure there is no sulfate or corrosion. If you detect these problems, perform a complete maintenance and then check if the error in your washing machine has disappeared.
  5. Inspect the PCB electronic board of your Hoover washing machine: Before starting to check this component, make sure the washing machine is turned off and disconnected. Open the access panel, whether it's front or top, to access the heart of the washing machine. Once inside, inspect the PCB electronic board for visual damage, such as charred, fractured, or detached components. If you notice abnormalities, you may need a replacement compatible with the specific model of your Hoover washing machine. To confirm your diagnosis, use a multimeter and your knowledge of electronics to verify the continuity of the electronic components.
  6. If you have followed all the previous instructions and the problem persists, it's time to review everything again: Pay closer attention to detail this time and repeat each step we've provided to make sure you haven't missed any details or omitted anything important. Sometimes, a small oversight can be the cause of the problem. Check if the error has disappeared from your Hoover washing machine once you've done a brief repetition of everything we've mentioned. If the problem still persists, consider contacting Hoover's technical support for a more thorough and exhaustive review of your washing machine.
  7. If you haven't been able to solve it on your own, then it's time to call Hoover's technical support: If you've already tried all the above solutions and the problem remains unresolved, then the fault is likely more complex than we expected and you'll need a professional and qualified review by an expert. At this point, it's advisable to request a home visit from Hoover's technical service. A qualified technician can thoroughly inspect your washing machine and provide you with a definitive solution to this problem. We're confident that you're in good hands, don't get discouraged, and continue until the end, as your Hoover washing machine can still be used without much trouble.

In conclusion and to summarize, we know that the error code e16 on Hoover washing machines can be caused by various reasons, such as a fault in the heating element or resistor, problems with the temperature sensor, faults in the PCB electronic board, and problems with the wiring. To solve this fault in your washing machine, you just need to follow everything we've described in this article.

And that's all for today! Sometimes it's necessary to perform preventive maintenance on your Hoover washing machine to avoid these types of situations that prevent you from finishing your laundry day.
