My WD62 Washer Dryer has packed up on me. When i set the dial to a wash cycle it fills the machine with water but the drum wont turn. The machine makes a clicking sound as if it is trying to follow on to the next part of the cycle. When i turn the dial gently to encourage it to work it just continues to make the clicking noise.
I would like to fix the problem myself as there is a two week wait for an engineer!.also very expensive....Any ideas on what part is broke and needs replacing and is it easy to replace?

remove the top panel by unscrewing the 3 screws at the back of the washer dryer . remove the top and then remove the back metal panel. the screws are down the side and all around the back of the panel. once you have removed the panel check for the black rubber hose that connects to the drum. remove the clip holding the rubber hose by prising it with a small screwdriver. be careful as the water will flow out quite quickly. Check the hose pipe for any blockages and clear as required.
Yeh you carbon brushes on the motor need replacing..
easy to do yourself. i have a post or there is a post on this site.
All you do is remove the top lid by unding the three screws at the back and pulling it back.
You will c the motor atached to the top of the drum. Now myself personally have a set of 90degree bent nose pliers specially for this job i dont know abbout you. You will c two white looking plugs inserted at the back end of the motor remove these and replace.
Howver on some models diffrent motors are used where you undue the carbons with a screw drive and replace.
Good luck Washdoctor..
Please rate me. the solution is adead cert. new brushes cost around £5 to £10 pounds
all in the timer. but there may be nothing wrong. sometimes in the cycle there will be a gap between water full and agitate or between drain and spin depending on settings. try it again and let it go and if there is a gap of more than 5 minutes than it needs a timer. most machines timers are right around $75 and you can most likely replace it yourself. sears appliance parts is the place to buy it. you can order it and they will deliver it to your door. or if you can get the phone # most of the outlets have a parts dept. also they take parts back for full credit for any reason.
