Question about Washing Machines
I have a front loading creda 1000 eco washing machine that will not spin at all. the timer seems to work fine, but the drum does not move at all through any of the cycles. the belt is in tact, but the motor isn't moving. last time i tried it, it was turning a for a little bit. again nothing. i don't know wether it may be the brushes or a balance sensor or what. Please Help!!!!!
The drum on my creda 1000 supaspeed ecowash (17085/17086)does not turn.
i've never opened the machine before - but am willing to give it a go - how do i do this to fix the problem? Can i get a manual?
It sounds like it needs new carbons fitting in 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.
fit new genuine Hotpoint carbons, 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.
Plz rate my solution.

If the unit is washing properly, as far as you can tell, but it won't stop spinning, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer to be diagnosed because there seems to be in miscommunication.
