Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have had a Bush a126q black delivered by Argos and removed the packaging bolts, it says that once I removed the rubber bits a white part would drop down so I tilted it like said to see this part but didn't see anything, put it on for an empty quick wash and the drum won't spin, I see these white things x4 covered in grease at the top and bottom of the piston/arm looking things that I think are meant to move but I tried to remove them but no joy? Can anyone help?

SOURCE: We have a penny stuck under the white spinning things.

Hello pinkygirll,
The Service manual has the procedure starting on page 37 for the tumbler removal, take a look and see if you feel comfortable to give it a try. If you are handy or someone you know has basic mech. skill sets you can perform. You, I and many others need to check those pockets. Here is the service manual link.

The manual doesn’t call out the torx driver size required for tumbler removal. I just removed my tumbler cap and measured, it’s a #20 torx driver. If you call a repair service in make sure you have your Model# and Serial# number ready to pass along to them. You mentioned”” There is a penny stuck and the washer stops with water in it after it tries to spin.”” The tumblers do not rotate in spin cycle only the wash cycle. If you do a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket do you hear the grinding noise? Good Luck.

SOURCE: Bush A126Q White and the ''end of programme'' light is staying on

Sorry Jo, I think I may have mis-understood your explanation - is there actually a problem with the machine functioning properly or is it simply that the end of cycle light will not turn off?

If it is the latter then simply turn the dial back to 0 before opening the door from the previous wash, this action tells the washing machine to reset itself as the drum is about to be emptied.

I have the exact machine however as it is graded, it didn't come with any manuals, at the end of the wash I just figured thta this was what I needed to do.

Its almost as if you need to double-declutch the washing machine - return the macine to 0 before selecting another cycle.

SOURCE: ariston al1256t bearing replacement

Lay the washing machine on its front & remove the back cover. Loosen the motor mount bolts (2 only) to allow the drive belt to slacken. Sit the drive belt aside. You will notice that the belt goes back into the clean shiny grooves in the motor pulley - be sure to put into the correct grooves when reassembling.

The drum pulley centre bolt is a normal right hand thread ie clockwise to undo. The pulley is then easily removed with a bearing puller.

Loosen the three bolts on the end of the 3 pronged mount, noting which is at the top of the machine - it only goes in the one way. Remove the three pronged mount from the machine. It will withdraw fron the drum shaft easily - worst case use the bearing puller again.

Next knock each bearing out of the three pronged mount with a drift, being careful to not damage the seal on one side. Put new bearings in (with 2RS seals are ok instead of 2Z type ie plastic seal is ok in place of metal seal for these bearings). Refit the seal last of all.

Put all back together & retighten the bolts firmly. Fit the drive belt (in the motor pulley shiny grooves) and retension the belt with the motor mount bolts (2 only) back in the original position.

Don't forget to put the machine back upright before test running!

I have also rebuilt a motor in one of these for about $100 if anybody needs to know how. Much better value than replacing one at $375+.

Hi newbie here with no real knowledge of washing machines I have a Bush a126Q washing machine that just won't work help!!!! The start button an action button flash as shown below in pic. This has been...


Hi,
Because it doesn't have an LCD screen it has 'flash codes' instead of fault codes.

But,
before you do anything else, turn the machine off & unplug it or switch-off the socket switch.
Leave it for an hour, before plugging-in & switching on again.
Whilst it's turned-off, take out the filter again & see if there is anything stopping the water pump from turning. It is usually located directly behind where the filter is.

Because you've cleaned the filter, it might be enough to re-set the machine.

If it doesn't, you'll need to count the flashes.
There's a short space between a sequence of flashes.
Once you know how many times it's flashing, you google;
Bush A126Q flash codes
That should tell you where the washer thinks it's problem lies.?

Best of luck

Front control arm bushing


get a hacksaw and take the blade out then push blade with teeth pointing forewards through the bush casing and reconnect the handle then saw the outer metal casing of the bush so you have a slot in it then do the same thing opposing the first slot and it will just drop out ,when fitting the new bush find a nice tightish old bolt and a bigthick washer ,warm the arm up a bit with a blow torch then knock the new bush in or use a big vice which is better but if you dont have access to one then just hammer it in

Washer is not agitating.


LOOK BETWEEN THE MOTOR AND THE TRANSMITION , SEE IF THE WHITE COLLECTER PRONS ARE BROKEN
