It makes a noise as if its spinning but the drum doesnt go round


Hi,iI have just had the same fault, and as described elsewhere, the solution was to replace the motor brushes. I would say this took 1/2 - 3/4 hour to remove brushes and same to replace.
How:
1.DISCONNECTED ELECTRICITY SUPPLY
2. Disconnected water
3. Removed the 1 screw from back panel, removed panel to get access to remove belt.
4. Lay washer on it's side (2 people recommended)
5. From underneath machine, unscrewed 2 bolts on the motor (back of the machine)
6. Holding the motor so it did not fall and get damaged, carefully tapped end of motor to unmount it from holding pegs (slides towards back of machine)
7. Noted how the plastic cover fixed to motor, then snipped tie wrap holding it to motor.
8. Unplugged connector and earth connector.
9. Carefully removed connector on each brush.
10. AS THE BRUSH WAS SLOWLY WITHDRAWN, checked the orientation of the bevelled edge of the brush relative to the motor so the new one was fitted correctly (the end of the brush is angled so it sits flat against the motors commutator)
11. Replaced brushes and refitted in reverse order.

Take care

My machine hotpoint WMA54 takes the water but the drum does not turn, what could be the problem? thanks


Could be motor brushes in need of replacement.
To check them, remove lower rear cover of washer.
Unplug motor and remove earth wire, remove drive belt.
Undo 2 screws securing motor to drum, and lever motor off
the mounts
Replace brushes if less than 3 or 4 mm long.
If brushes o/k, then could be control board problem.
Check all connections between module and motor.
Please rate my solutioin.
Thankyou..

The worn out brush could certainley cause the trip to operate.
The best way to remove motor is to lay washer on it's side, and undo the 2 screws that hold the motor in place, then lever back off the mounts.
Remove the rear cover first and drive belt.
Hope this is if some help to you .

Hotpoint WM 22 wont spin


The first you need to do is check the brushes in the motor.
Remve the screws at rear of top cover, remove cover.
Slacken off the 2 bolts securing motor,and remove belt.Remove 2 screws that hold motor and lift motor up so you can access the brushes..
The brush holders will be either black or white, depress the plastic lug that holds the brush in place, and slide the holders out, remove the wires to the brushes, and check the carbons, if their is less than 2 or 3 mm left, then replace them.
Only fit the genuine brushes, and if you can make sure you fit the black ones, as they are better than the white ones.
Follow the instructions on the packaging on how to release the carbons from the captive position.
Refit motor, and ensure the belt is reasonably tight.
If it still does not work ,then the motor itself could be faulty, check for broken wires in the motor plug and harness.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Washing machine problem


my w830 is doing exactly the same thing.

I am usually pretty good at fixing these sort of things so if/when I solve it I will post back here.

I think it is a motor fault - most likely the motor brushes are worn out.
