Question about Washing Machines
Asked this question a few days ago. Since then have checked and can confirm that it does drain and the water pump is working.
When programme reaches spin it just makes a light chuntering noise but does not spin. Rest of programme working OK.
The first you need to do is check the brushes in the motor.
Remve the screws at rear of top cover, remove cover.
Slacken off the 2 bolts securing motor,and remove belt.Remove 2 screws that hold motor and lift motor up so you can access the brushes..
The brush holders will be either black or white, depress the plastic lug that holds the brush in place, and slide the holders out, remove the wires to the brushes, and check the carbons, if their is less than 2 or 3 mm left, then replace them.
Only fit the genuine brushes, and if you can make sure you fit the black ones, as they are better than the white ones.
Follow the instructions on the packaging on how to release the carbons from the captive position.
Refit motor, and ensure the belt is reasonably tight.
If it still does not work ,then the motor itself could be faulty, check for broken wires in the motor plug and harness.
Plz rate my solution.
