Its a pain on this model but heres how. First remove plate at back of machine. Remove belt and two bolts holding motor (13mm).Unplug motor and remove. brushes are at back end of motor in plastic housings. after refitting motor replacing belt is where the fun begins. Put bottom end on first and feed round pulley. ouch

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.

It could be carbon brushes or electronic fault.

Do you have ability to check carbon brushes?

Feel free to ask if you dont know how to do it.

My 1200I washes ok but does not get to spin speed, I suspect its the motor brushes, is this correct?


It seems unlikely as if the motor brushes were worn I would expect problems making the motor turn at all. It would seem that a number of owners have had the same problem and it is due to the load sensor thinking that the load is not even. If it thinks the machine will be subject to excessive vibration it stops the spin progressively. I don't know how the machine checks for uneven load, there must be a vibration sensor, maybe it gets worn and needs replacing, but I suggest you redistribute the load and spin again. Make sure the machine is level and not rocking. Also have a look here http://electrolux.manualsonline.com/washerdryer/ew_1200_i/possible-causes-21.php Please rate my reply thank you.

Whirlpool washer model #lsr5132hq1- drum turns but agitator doesnt on second spin cycle until you give it a spin by hand. ok on first spin cycle


May be the motor carbon brushes are worn. This is usually a cheap repair 10 or 20 pounds if u can do it yourself , but disconnect from mains , take out motor , remove , replace carbon brushes, ( some motors don't have them) you can understand what I mean, my advice is estimate from local dealer but dont get conned with new motor ( I think its carbon brushes only) .

During the wash cycle the machine will drain but not start spinning


Hi dont know what machine you have but it sounds like motor brushes. To do this you need to remove the motor. Where you see the armature there are 2 carbon brushes possible in plastic casings. They will have 1 wir to each. Remove these and the carbon inside should protrude out about 1/2 inch or more.If less they will need replacing and that should rectify the problem.Cant be more detailed as dont know make or model number.

I suggest that you check the brushes in the motor for wear.
Remove rear panel, remove drive belt, undo bolts securing motor, unplug motor lead and earth wire.
Lever motor back, keeping hold of it, and remove.
Check the brushes, they are at the opp end to the motor pulley, if there is less than 8mm left, then replace brushes.
I would also check the pump filter, and clean if req'd.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

This deffenitly could be the brushes. Wierd sound normally comes from the electric sparking between the stator and the brushes. If it are not the brushes the best bet will be the bearing.

Fitting brushes


just replace the motor. the brushes are inside the motor and if you dont know what you're doing you will end up replacing the motor anyway. if your machine agitates but does not spin its not the motor, be more specific about make and model and more specific info on the problem and we might be able to help
