Wash though no spin

My machine is washing fine, though it is not spinning at all. When looked at the Carbon Brushes had worn down which i replaced, though the problem still remains the same!! Does anyone know what it could be, I imagine it to be something simple!!

Re: wash though no spin

Did you try looking from underneath the machine, majority of machines can be accessed this way. if its the bottom thats sealed try taking off the back panel and checking the black rubber hose leading from your drum to the drain pump, could be a sock stuck in there.

Why won't the drum spin on my washing machine and can I fix it myself

Very likely the brushes are worn, these are located either side of the motor. if you are able to take the motor off the machine but don't know where the brushes are, take the motor to your local repairer who will probably change the brushes for you at a small fee plus brushes. if you are able to identify the brushes and can take them off, the carbon inside the brush holder should be no less than half and inch long. If its less they are probably worn out. get new ones and replace. be careful the carbon brush is very brittle and will break easily. I can't be more specific on changing the brushes as each machine is different.

Hi carl if your Beko WM5140W 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.

GE washer wont agitate or spin ?

This could be because the carbon brushes in your motor are worn down. One will need to check the motor to be sure.

The carbon brushes apply electricity to the motor via a split ring comutator.
Over a while the carbon dust can create a short circuit. The motor needs to be looked at and cleaned. Possibly may need to replace the brushes.

Take care!

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...

Hoover Vision 1600 drum not spinning?

Have the same problem, different model and it looks like I am outside 5 years spare parts. Probably just a belt or something from overloading. Also looks like it would nearly be cheaper to buy a new machine.You must have checked your pump???? What a rip off
