    Hi everyone,

    I’m currently experiencing an E22 error on my Hoover Tumble Dryer and wanted to check the condensate pump for blockages, however I could t find any information online that let me know where the pump is located and how to get to it.

    If anyone could offer any help or point me in the direction of a tutorial on how to do so I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you.

    Brand: Hoover
    Model: HL C9DCEB-80
    Error: E22

    I’ve found a video of a full service of a similar model, so I’m currently stripping the machine apart. I’ve had to stop as babies need attention, hopefully it’ll prove to be the ticket when I get back to it later on.

    Ok guys, I’ve made some progress with the issue I had outlined by following a tutorial of a model that was similar to my own. However, there is some information that it hasn’t provided me with. I’ve stripped the machine down to its bare bones now and have access to the motor and other internal components.

    As is previously mentioned, the issue is an E22 error which I believe to be related to the condensate pump. Perhaps a blockage.

    Ive uploaded a picture of the machine below and as far as my admittedly limited knowledge on the subject tells me, the condensate pump is located to the left of the motor.

    The main issue I’m having now having gotten this far is that I now have no idea how to check the pump for blockages without damaging the machine.

    If anyone has the time to look over the image I’ve uploaded and offer any advice on what to do now then I would be very appreciative.

    Further update, I’ve removed the wiring connected to the pump fitting and lifted up the pump section from the machine base. Here’s some more pictures.

    I don’t see any obvious blockages, but I’m not too sure exactly what to be looking for.

    Here’s some more images of the current view.

    I’ve just checked and cleared out the drain and both ends of the hose. I found a few bits, but nothing substantial that I would expect would cause a blockage.

    I’m currently rebuilding the machine. Hopefully that, combined with the general cleaning of the machine will have solved the issue.
