I have a Hoover Elite 930 which few years old. It is made some strange
noises yesterday before my wife shut it off, now when I hold the "fan
blades" think that makes the cloth turn around, and try to turn it by hand,
it makes some crackly noise. I am not sure what and where to start.
Not to be confused with the "Hoover U5244 930" which is a vacuum cleaner
Though I am still confused because holding fan blades that make cloth turn
around sounds incorrect. Do you perhaps mean to say that if you hold or
turn the agitator, which moves the clothes around, it makes grinding noises,
then I might suggest the transmission is broken and it is time to get a new
washer since repaing this part usually exceeds the replacement cost (and
nearly so for even a DIY job). The transmission (gear box) usually cannot
be repaired or rebuilt as a gear inside is probably stripped.
Must be an oldie 'cause only web reference I see to a washer is for a used
one for $100 and no new hoover washers appear on any shopping sites.
Gollleee, didn't know Hoover makes (made) them....Is there any oil or
anything noticeable under the machine that would indicate
transmission....If so, as mentioned, time for the junk heap.
If you want to take the chance, you could try replacing the agitator,
depending on if parts are available....
Don't know how you go about it on your machine, but the following might
give you enough of an idea to get you started -- ask a parts house how
much a new agitator assembly would be...
