Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD640 Front Load Washer/Dryer
Machine drains does not spin, but flashes error code f-01
Error code F01 indicates a short circuit moTor triac.
This is part of the electronics that control the motor, it can be caused by worn brushes in the motor or a faulty pcb .
to check the motor brushes, remove the rear panel,, remove the belt and undo 2 screws that secure motor, lever motor back with a screwdriver or similar, unplug the motor leads , and remove the motor.
You will see the brushes at the armature end.
remove and inspect, you should see if they have shorted by discolouration of the armature.
If you clean the armature with emery paper and it looks o/k, then you can try fitting new brushes, but there is no guarantee that it will work,as the pcb may have shorted.
This being the case then it could be quite expensive to put right.
Plz rate my solution.
