No final spin


Take the power plug off the wall. Be prepared for a lot of water before attempting the following. It doesn't spin because the unit is not draining water. It will not spin with water in it - must drain first. Check drain hose for kink,check exit pipe for blockage. Remove the front access panel, bottom front, screws beneath; if you find a hose there with a cap -this is for draining water. Could be your "coin trap assembly" is blocked, therefore not allowing all the water to pump out. Remove the clamp (or unscrew) that connects the trap assembly to the pump and clean it out.


Coming the second aspect if the above gives no result:
Perhaps you need new carbons brushes for the motor. It is a fairly straightforward repair. Remove the top cover, screws at rear, and slide top cover off towards the rear. The motor is located at the top right right rear, you will see the drive belt. Slacken the bolt that holds the motor, and push the motor down towards the top of the drum. You will see the 2 brush holders, they will be either black or white, pull the wires off the holder terminals, and depress the plastic lug that holds the brushes in place, slide the brushes out of the motor. The length of the brush should be at least half an inch long or replace. Fit new genuine carbon brushes, and follow instructions on packaging. Push the leads back on to the carbon terminals. tighten up motor, and make sure the belt is reasonably tight. Test on final spin before you refit top cover.
There are very gud videos on YouTube to guide you.

Water wont empty from my machine


Hi if your beko WME7247W 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
How to replace Beko Washing Machine Motor Carbon Brushes
you might find this test video helpful but only do it if you have checked the motor

Washer will not spin. Cleaned drain/filter. Worked for 2 days. Now won't spin and checked drain, it is clean. The drain pump works fine. What to check next?


i had the same problem a year ago. nothing seemed to work. we even got a new washer, same problem. we ended up putting the washer on its own circuit. works fine now.

My bosch classixx 1200 wont spin when on function but will spin by hand i have cleaned the pipes and checked the belt everything seems ok


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It does sound as if the motor requires replacement because it is struggling, particularly when called upon to run the spin cycle. It is not uncommon to find that the brushes are worn sufficiently for them to not make perfect contact with the commutator at the higher speeds- bouncing and sparking. Now, a word or two of advice from this retired Englishman in SW France. It might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the commutator (like the worn ones!), often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. Alternately a new motor! I changed the motor on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(
The choice of course is entirely up to you- but do not forget that it is not an uncommon fault, especially if the washer is not exactly new. Others I have given this advice to have chosen new brushes and I don't blame them!


If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have a beko 1512s washing machine, it goes thru the cycle but then wont do a final empty and spin. Its not the pump and its not the brushes please help :(


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Are you refering to the main motor when you say 'Its not the 'pump' and its not the brushes' or have you been able to check the separate drain pump and clean the filter, please?
Because I do not know your answers and just in case with no promises ;-0) ---------->

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Motor humswhen turned on. Removed pump and rotated motor shaft, put back together and worked but made a loud clicking noise. turned off and tried to turn back on again. Motor just hums as if something...


I was going to mention the coupling, since that is new, then I would suggest motor brushes or new motor. As long as you are getting sufficient power to the motor. about minimum of 12-13.5 volts

Not working with wierd symptoms


hi 5 years old ? from the symptoms you have described this is most probably the machines motor brushes are too low/worne as they all do in time this is not too difficult to diy repair if you feel confident ? the brushes in uk cost around £5 --£6 approx and to change them is easy by removing rear cover on machine you muat disconnect power/ drain pipe/ and turn off water supply pipe/s from machine ? the motor is rather like cars alternator in apearance?? disconnect power plug from it then you will have to look at motor and observe how it secures then remove bolts/nuts if you have new brushes to hand ??it will become obviouse how//where they fit and wire connects on each x2 at this it would be advisable after 5 yrs? to fit a new belt too? refit motor+belt adjust belt tension by adjusting motor on slide adjust then tighten? reassemble all parts in reverse then try a wash ? this is common prob especially after long time and for your info the down comforter load was the final nail in coffin but should have no probs after new brushes always think the positive waves! not the negative! good luck

Will not empty the water out, water pump works-pipes are clean and motor brushes are new. When the dial is constanly turned eventually it empties


That's odd.
When you say the pump works, I assume you mean you can see it turning?
When you say the pipes are clean, I assume you mean the washing machine's pipes.
Motor brushes? Well, if you can see the pump turning, maybe that's irrelevant.
I'm stumped. Are you sure the pump is turning? Is the impeller connected to the drive shaft? Is the pump belt driven?
Lastly, are you sure your sewage system takes enough water?
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
