Hash fails are data thats corrupted in transit:

a block is sent to you, when the block is finished, the torrent client will check the hash of that block to make sure it matches the hash in the .torrent file. If it passes, it adds it to the "completed" list. If not, it tosses that block out, and tries to download that piece again. It will keep re-trying a failed hash till it gets a good copy. And don't worry, most clients keep good track of peers that send bad data, and if it happens often, will snub them and get the piece from another peer instead.
