How to Fix an E13 Error on a Hoover Washer Dryer

Hoover Washing Machine Error Code E13

Got an unexplained code or flashing LED on your Hoover washer dryer display panel? Let us demystify the code! When you see E13 displayed, or an LED continuously blinking thirteen times between pauses, this is your machine’s way of letting you know precisely what has gone wrong with it. In this case error code E13 relates to a fault with either the control board, dryer heater or temperature sensor.

How to Diagnose and Fix Fault Code E13

How can you tell precisely what is causing the fault? You’ll need to do some investigating inside your machine:

  • Switch off and unplug the washer dryer.
  • Check the heating element.
  • Check the temperature sensor.
  • Check the connections between the control board and both the element and the temperature sensor.

Once you know the cause of the problem you can fix the broken connection or replace the offending part. Fixing the issue could be as simple as securing a loose connection, or could involve replacing the control board. 

Either way, when the machine is switched back on it should no longer be displaying an error code if the fault has been taken care of.
