I had a problem with the above machine but lots of Hoover machines are similar.
It would not start the cycle and cane up with E08 error code. I found this relates to the motor and is usually to do with the carbon brushes on the motor.
I found this site which shows how to change them (quite simple really - about 1/2 hour job)

I also found out that Hoover use one of 5 different motors on its machines so take the motor off and remove a brush before you buy the part so you can compare it with the one you buy.

I used the following part

but be careful to choose the correct part as the locating lugs are in different places on the range of brushes.

One other tip: if you have had to drain the machine make sure that you tighten the drain plug up again as the machine will not operate (it took me a while to sort that out!)
