I had a similar problem with a different make recently. After cleaning the filter which didn't seem to have anything in it and rinsing the filters on the in and out pipes I took all the clothes out and ran it empty on two different full programmes and somehow the gremlins disappeared and it works fine now.

SOURCE: Washer won't spin.

From Howtomendit: key point I missed was that you need to pull the motor apart after you have taken it out of the machine before you can get access to the screws holding the brushes in. (ie: unscrew the four bolts). Not as difficult or scary as it looked!

please read thro first.
first unplug it, pull it out so you have some work space, take off back plate, remove belt undo (should be white rectangle plastic block with wire attached), remove green+yellow wire undo bolts which hold motor to drum, gently ease out motor (please be aware of sharp edges), run screwdriver down 1 side of motor so you put it back together same way you took it apart, unscrew 4 bolts that hold motor together take top bit of dont loose spacer ring, place to 1 side, remove middle comutator the end the brushes are touching will need a proper clean wd40 maybe wipe clean with cloth so its not dull let dry, undo carbon brushes, take plate off also clean then clean what they were attached to when dry replace in reverse order gently (with new brushes) then replace back on machine plug back in and test by running spin program found at bottom of dail if i have my mod/num right let it get to full spin watch motor if it sparks an looks like blackpool illuminations motors no good will need new 1 sorry.

SOURCE: HOTPOINT AQUARIES WM63 , NO SPIN SPEED- MOTOR

If the brushes are less than 3 or 4 mm long, then they need replacing.
If still no spin , but washes o/k, then the high speed part of the motor windings could be faulty, which entails replacing the motor.

Please rate my solution.
Thankyou

Why won't it start?


Is the power reaching the starter motor so it can spin - did you check that? If no power is reaching motor you have to back trace the wiring - power could be getting to the ignition switch but not reaching the motor. If power is reaching the motor and it does not spin there could be something wrong with the starter - if so check the brushes.

Sometimes the brushes wear and the spring that pushes the brush up against the commutator is not long enough with the shortened brush - replace the brush(es).

Model fwt645rhso will agitate but won't drain out, on spin cycle washer spins one way, stops goes back the other way, but water will not drain out. Does not rapidly spin on final cycle. Any...


There's an auxiliary switch in the door lock.switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. The machine will NEVER advance to the spin cycle unless the auxiliary switch is activated as a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during a high-speed spin cycle that may result in physical injury. The drum tumbles back and forth while the machine control checks the auxiliary if activated but since it's not, the control will not command the motor speed control to spin the drum at high speed. These symptoms may indicate a faulty door lock/switch assembly and may need replacement. Click on the links below for the detailed troubleshooting instructions and replacement of the door lock/switch assembly.

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.

At its lowest setting, our mixer spins at ever increasing speeds until it stops and then, will not work at any setting.


Your motor needs to be replaced. The speed setting should be able to be set from the start, and if it will not slow down or change speeds, the motor has been over-heated and will need to be replaced. The only quick fix for this is to bypass the speed setting, and change the brushes on the motor. If you do not know how to do this, ask a serviceman to change the brushes only. Brushes usually run about $30 to repair. Although, you will only have one speed.
