My machine stopped washing and spinning so I took the brushes out for inspection and i can see a small spring loaded ((shut?) protruding. Does this indicate that the brushes are finished?

Where is the timer located?


Timers are usually located on the control panel which sits at the top of the machine behind the front facia.May I suggest you first reset the machine by switching off from the wall then whilst holding the start button in for 5-10 seconds with the door closed switch back on.then retry doing a spin program with machine empty. listen check if it still reverse washes and still spins satisfactorily and not just empties the water then stopping after turn a few times.if you need to gain access to internals make sure you disconnect the power supply first.you can remove the top by taking off the two screws rear top and sliding top towards back in most cases.Worn brushes are usually the reason for spinning faults so you will need to inspect them for wear.also check for burn marks and damage to wiring looms and loose connections.These are located on the motor at the bottom of machine.and are spring loaded.Plenty of tutorials on YouTube.Hope this helps you find the solution for this problem.i take it the timer display is behaving as normal.thankyou

Why won't the drum spin on my washing machine and can I fix it myself


Very likely the brushes are worn, these are located either side of the motor. if you are able to take the motor off the machine but don't know where the brushes are, take the motor to your local repairer who will probably change the brushes for you at a small fee plus brushes. if you are able to identify the brushes and can take them off, the carbon inside the brush holder should be no less than half and inch long. If its less they are probably worn out. get new ones and replace. be careful the carbon brush is very brittle and will break easily. I can't be more specific on changing the brushes as each machine is different.

My washing machine wont spin with clothes in it


Hi, you will find either the drive belt has stretched slightly so when the unit is under a load the motor pulley slips on the belt. The belt should have some sort of tensioning or you would need it replaced.

The other reason it will not spin is if the motor brushes are worn and need replacing.

Hope this helps.

F11 error lights flash then stops at last spin . I did clean the filter and took some coins out Whirlpool AWM8163 washer


The F11 fault is the motor. I have had this issue myself and found that replacing the contact brushes solved this. The brushes on most electric motors are made from carbon, and wear down with use. They are spring loaded but have a limited life span. These are also cheap to purchase.

Drum not turning


If you are certain that the motor was turning, then the only things that come to mind are that:
  1. The belt is stretched or worn-Replace as there is no adjustment.
  2. The drum is stalled, either because it has seized, or there is something stuck in the drum.
  3. The motor brushes are worn, and will not cope with load of drum, check brushes.
Try running it on fast spin without the belt on , if it spins o/k, then that would indicate the motor is o/k.
Please leave a fixya rating for my solution.
Thanks.

hi Many universal motor malfunctions are caused by wearing down of the carbon brushes, the soft blocks of carbon that complete the electrical contact to the motor's commutator. When these brushes become worn, the motor will spark, and electrical contact may be incomplete.try this
Step 1: To sight-check the carbon brushes, remove the screws that hold the brushes and brush springs into the brush holders at the sides of the commutator. The screws will pop out of the screw holes; turn the motor over to tap out the brushes. The ends of the brushes should be curved to fit the commutator; if they're worn down, new brushes are needed.
Step 2: To check carbon brushes with a continuity tester, remove the motor lead wires from the circuit. Tag the wires as you disconnect them so that you'll be able to reconnect them properly. Hook the tester clip to one motor lead and touch the probe to the other lead; the tester should light or buzz. Slowly rotate the motor shaft, keeping the tester in position. If the tester doesn't light or buzz, or if it flickers or stutters when you turn the motor shaft, the brushes should be replaced. If the springs behind the brushes are damaged, they should be replaced as well.

Step 3: Replace worn carbon brushes and damaged springs with new ones made specifically for the motor. The model information (number and make) is stamped on a metal plate fastened to the motor, or embossed on the metal housing of the motor. If you can't find the model information, take the worn brushes and springs with you to an appliance-parts store to make sure you get the right kind. Insert the new springs and brushes in the brush holders, replace the brush assemblies, and secure the new brushes with the mounting screws that held the old brushes.
