Question about Brandt Washing Machines
I have atop loader washing machine and a friend has just used it .Unfortunately they filled it with clothes, forgot to close the flaps onthe drum, closed the lid and set it running. The drum has spun aroundand got wedged half way round but is now completely stuck. Does anyoneknow of any way to release the drum (full of clothes) and fix it?It is a French brand called Brandt. Washer model FV 515.Many thanks, Carl.
remove edge decore trims from left and right side front of control panel
remove phillips screws from bottom corners of contol panel
remove knob from water level selector
raise control panel ~1 inch then flip over backwords on pivots
depress lock tab on right/underside of water level control body where it touches metal mount plate
rotate water level control body 45deg anti clockwise
pull body off
top side of body next to knob shaft is 1/8 hex head bolt
turn clockwise to rais water level
anticlockwise to lower water level
machine can be operated with this part not fitted so can check level. fill, adjust screw, fill will start again, adjust screw, until water level is correct
reinstall in reverse order
Incidentally, the cause is a VERY small wire spring inside the control body that is not really up to the task, and stretches over years.
Its a common occurrence, and I make this repair, on callouts, no parts required, couple times a month you may have to flip the switch to reset to get the water to restart filling
