Hello guys

None of the Heating Cycles on on this Hoover HBWD 8514TAHC-80 work.

The machine is about 5 years old.

Any idea if it is worth repairing, or get new machine?

Many thanks for any ideas.

Thank you for replying.


The washing machine washes clothes as usual. Clothes will not dry even after 2 hours.
Dryer heater fault then. There could many reason for the heater failing, but...

I would check the air ducts and filter are clear of fluff, then look for a temperature sensor which has tripped and needs resetting.

The Steam Valve was faulty.
