Dial turning for cycle but the drum will not spin

Hi there, My washing machine has just stopped working on me, The dial clicks around pretty fast through the cycle, but the drum will not turn. It worked fine the day before. I have not overloaded it or moved it. Can you help me please as I am like I have had my right arm chopped off without it. Kind Regards Jeannette

Hello The washing machine is not going through

The lid switch has failed. It will not spin because it is a safety device.

Unit runs good through wash cycle then while in rinse and spin does not complete cycle. The machine starts doing a short spin, and then dial starts turning around without stopping.

Sounds as if the drain pump is not ejecting the water fast enough. Did you notice of the washer is draining more slowly than usual or at all?

Hi! I have an Indesit W84TX washing machine. Lately, it has stopped working every time it reaches the rinse cycle. It seems to rinse and drain just one time before the process stops and the settings dial...

Actually, while the settings dial spins, there is also a kind of grinding/clicking sound from down where the drain port is. I checked it and there is no filter there when I open it.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

No reset. Carbon brushes are worrn out. Consider changing the bearings while you have the motor apart. Se for spares.
