How to Troubleshoot a Hoover VHD822

Updated November 21, 2016

The Hoover VHD822 is a washing machine that offers many standard features and a few additional options, including energy saving cycles, variable spin and water pressure options and pre-wash, extra rinse and timer features. Available online and in select appliance, department or home retail stores, the Hoover washing machine should function well with basic maintenance and care. However, if individuals experience problems with the machine, some troubleshooting steps may be beneficial in locating the source of the issue and a potential resolution.

Ensure the Hoover washing machine is firmly connected to a grounded power supply if the machine is not working. Reset the circuit breaker if necessary.

Turn the main power switch to "On" and open and close the washer door firmly if the electrical socket has power but the washer is not functioning. The washer will not operate if not turned on or if the door is open.

Verify the water inlet hoses are connected firmly and are turned on if there is no water flowing to the washing machine. Straighten out any kinks in the hoses and remove possible obstructions from the inlet screen.

Straighten the drain hose if the water is not draining from the unit. Remove any possible blockages from the drain hose. Tighten the hose if necessary.

Avoid selecting a "No Spin" option if the washer is not spinning water out of the drum. Choose a new spin cycle and press "Start" to remove water from the drum.

Verify that all four feet are touching the ground evenly if the washing machine is rocking or vibrating during use. Adjust as needed.
