The Hoover HNL 8146 machine I've got is quite old bought back 1998. It now does not fill with water at all, leaks at base and makes a noise when spinning and does not drain away very well leaving washing dirty. Is it worth mending or just buying a new machine?
The machine is 23 years old. Have you checked availability of parts? Parts prices?
Personally I'd be tempted to get a new, decent branded machine - Bosch or something like that. Shop around and you should be able to get one with a decently long warranty in addition, of course, to your legal rights against the retailer
