I have a Hotpoint 1st edition 1200 washing machine and it won't spin. The belt is ok. Does the drum motor have brushes? Or can you suggest what the problem may be?

could be motor not rotating under pressure. When you say brushes have you removed them from motor to check them, also check they slide in and out thier holders ok, as they may be sticking

I have a hotpoint wma22. problem with it does not spin.The belt is ok .


+I would remove the motor and check the brushes for wear.
If they are less than 3 or 4mm long, thet need replacing.
If brushes o/k, then it is probably a control module fault.
I am of course assuming that the washer has drained the water out, or it will not spin.

Hotpoint WF220P has become very noisy during spin, especially at high revs. Can it be worn brushes or motor, or bearings? Otherwise all is OK.


Remove drive belt, and spin drum by hand, if it feels rough or noisy, then the main drum bearings are worn.
If no noise from drum, could be a motor prob.

My machine is making a noise as is it is spinning noise but drum will not spin around. any suggestions


Check to see if you can turn drum by hand, if you can, then prob could be belt, or motor not turning under load, check brushes in motor.

Drum not turning


If you are certain that the motor was turning, then the only things that come to mind are that:
  1. The belt is stretched or worn-Replace as there is no adjustment.
  2. The drum is stalled, either because it has seized, or there is something stuck in the drum.
  3. The motor brushes are worn, and will not cope with load of drum, check brushes.
Try running it on fast spin without the belt on , if it spins o/k, then that would indicate the motor is o/k.
Please leave a fixya rating for my solution.
Thanks.
