hi Of all washing machine parts, the water pump probably takes the most punishment, because it is constantly in use. When the pump fails, you can hear or see the trouble: a loud rumbling inside the machine, or a failure of the water to drain out of the tub. In most cases, motor malfunctions should be handled by a professional; do not try to fix the motor yourself. If the motor is a universal motor, however, you can change worn carbon brushes when sparking occurs, as detailed in the how to repair appliances article. To save the expense of a service call, remove the motor from the washer and take it to a professional service person, then reinstall the repaired or new motor yourself. To access the motor, remove the back panel of the washer. The motor is mounted on an adjustable bracket.


There is one other motor problem you can repair yourself. Washer motors usually have an overload protector clipped to the motor. When this component fails, the motor won't work. Before you take the motor in for service, test the protector with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect one electrical lead wire to the protector and clip one probe of the VOM to each protector terminal. The meter should read zero. If the needle jumps higher, the protector is faulty and should be replaced. Pry up the protector with a screwdriver and replace it with a new one made specifically for the motor or washer. Connect the new protector the same way the old one was connected.

SOURCE: BEKO WMA641W washing machine not draining but pump

Are you sure the pump is working, or it the motor thats running? If the pump is truly working, there is a clog in pump or line. If the motor is working, but the pump is not, you will need to replace. You can usually buy a replacement pump for the washing machine for around $50. They are usually easy to install for a beginner DYI. Make sure you know the easiest way to remove washing machine housing to get at pump and motor. Unplug entire unit. Remove 2 hoses for pump and either screws or brackets to remove housing. BTW if the washing machine won't drain, you are going to have a bunch of water that gravity wants to dump out of machine. Bring pump to parts dealer for exact match.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

This part is bypassing water when the valve is supposed to be closed.
http://www.buyspares.co.uk/washing-machine/wm1512s-7105681100/solenoid-valve/product.pl?pid=59100&shop=beko&path=110919&model_ref=48934

It consists of a plastic body, A moving spring loaded needle with a rubber tip that mates to a rubber diaphragm. When they start bypassing water when not energized there is either debris in diaphragm where the rubber tipped needle mates or the diaphragm has a hole in it. These valves are NOT repairable.

When energized the solenoid magnetically lifts the rubber tipped needle off of the diaphragm. A spring forces the needle back into the diaphragm seat when the solenoid is de-energized.

If your machine has 2 of these before troubleshoot by turning the water supply off at the wall ONE hose at a time and see if the water stops seeping into the machine. Which ever hose being turned off results in the water seepage problem stopping will be the bad inlet water valve.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

SOURCE: are the brushes inside the

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

The brushes are inside the motor and run on what is called the commutator located at one end of the motor shaft.
It could be that the motor requires replacement unless it is the control board not powering the motor.
Now, a word or two of advice from a 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 com, 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(

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

Beko WMI71641 won't agitate or spin - drum doesn't move!


your pump is blocked,at bottom of machine there should be a flap with a round plug in middle .unscrew,it will have water come out so use a bowl or big towel.the impeller should turn freely,once plug is unscrewed at front put washer into a drain program see if the pump turns.if this is free youll need to get the pump off(unplug machine first)and then feel inside the big pipe from the drum to pump.it may have a sock or something like inside.this means it will work but wont get out all the water.also note when trying to spin a pillow,or big towel the load will be uneven so it will reduce its spin speed so it doesnt destroy its self
