We have just moved into a property with a Hoover 1300 washing machine. When we wash the clothes they come out still soapy and leave white marks on clothes. Is there a fix. We dont have the manual. Thanks David

What you probably have is a build-up of scrud in the machine as a result of an interaction between the fabric softener and the detergent. This flakes off and marks the clothing.
Buy a commercially available cleaner for your machine for this purpose of do one or two cycles using a bottle of white vinegar in the tub without detergent. Clean the machine out doing another cycle using baking soda directly in the drum. Repeat this process if there are still any indications of scrud.
Take care that you use the correct amount of detergent in your machine according to load and water level and do a cleaning run about every 25 wash cycles to clear away any excess detergent that was not caught by the rinse.

sounds as though your machine is plumbed incorrectly, the height of the waste hose end when fitted into stand pipe should not be lower than 4/5 inches from top of washer, this is to prevent syphoning which will leave suds grime etc and also cause blotching on whites

Yes. the pump may be blocked. look at the bottom of the washing machine front and you will see a flap undoo this and take out any bitts stuck in. Caution. Make sure the washing machine is un pluged and when you unscrew that plug. all of the water will come out of the machine. Best to do it outside. If that dose not work it means the pump has blown.

White marks on my clothes.


Are you using TOO much powder? And is the machine set to the correct rinse tempature? You mention white stuff, does it look like undissolved washing powder? Or fabric softner? Possibly try liquid detergent and see if the problem continues. And follow the recommended amounts of detergent for each wash load, and the tempature settings. And of course the water levels. All of the above are crucial to insure you get maximum preformance and utility out of your machine, with the results you expect. Let us know what you find. Kindest Regards, Slats.

check the inlet hose screens by shutting off the water and unscrewing the hoses at the machine. Sedimet is trapped in the screen reducing water flow.

Brown smudges on clothes


Take a look and see if the drum near the door moves up vertically. It shouldn't move more than 3/16ths of an inch. If it does, replace the upper felt seal/plastic slide. The upper seal that supports the front of the drum on the front of the dryer is worn out to the point that clothes can get stuck in the gap between the drum and the front of the machine. This leaves brown wedge marks on clothes. While it's apart, replace the lower felt seal as well.
