Question about Hotpoint WMA35 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Motor brushes? Machine started making funny crackling noises and then stopped spinning. Now it just has some of the lights on and wont do anything. From past experiens I guess the motor brushes are gone? looking underneath I can only see one of the brushes pointing directly downwards - do I have to take the motor off to get to the other one?

Re: Motor brushes?

I am not familiar with your specific washer, but there are some washers that has a hole in the bottom that allow you an access to the brush. In case you don't have this access (I hope that you will have !) you should take the motor off for it. Good luck !

Neff washing machine not spinning. Fine yesterday, slightly funny noise and now drum not moving on wash or spin! Any clues?

Could be worn Carbon brushes on the motor.Check belt has not fallen off though...some Neff you need to buy half motor to fit new brushes as it comes this way, perhaps a good test is to blow ut any dust next to the brushes this may allow the motor to Briefy run long enough to tell if brushes are worn ..Half motor cost to buy - 60 GBP......Happy new year...

Drum does a small turn then stops but wont empty -wont wash either beko 1000 rpm

Hi if your beko 1000 spin washing machine wont drain or has a spin problem then you have to check the carbon brushes first.

Also check all waste pipes are clear and inspect the pump I have included this video below.

At our website I am doing self diagnostic videos on these beko's as we speak so all tutorials will be in this link below

you might find this test video helpful but only do it if you have checked the motor

This deffenitly could be the brushes. Wierd sound normally comes from the electric sparking between the stator and the brushes. If it are not the brushes the best bet will be the bearing.
