Hoover Washing Machine Error Code E06

If you've put a load of washing on only to come back and find the machine flashing at you, you won’t be impressed. Due to the constant use, the washing machine can be put under a lot of strain, therefore it’s important to be mindful of how you’re using it.

If your washing machine shows an E06 error code or the power light blinks six times before pausing the fault could lie with an unbalanced load! We have investigated the best practice to levelling out your wash load to help get your appliance working again.

Cause 1

Unbalanced Load

If your washing machine is unbalanced it could cause a frighteningly thunderous banging. At best, a thumping and jumping machine is a nuisance - however, if not resolved the drum could stop altogether which of course is why you are here.

By applying a simple fix, which we advise below - you may be able to save your washer from heading to the scrap yard.

  • Remove your current washing load and start a cycle empty to confirm that the drum still spins.

If the machine operates as normal then the fault originally lied with the appliance being loaded with one or two heavy weighing items causing an unbalanced load.

To help counter this problem, balancing the heavy garments when washing should help ensure the drum can spin.

Another possible solution would be to separate your heavy garments and perform a “heavy wash”.
