Offer the belt around the motor pulley first , feed one side of the belt to drum pulley , whilst holding this side to drum pulley turn pulley using other hand , belt should follow natural path onto pulley .

mits86 , you are correct - it could be the belt.

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!

To do the belt...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Open the top of the machine - see the sides of the lid about 10 cm from front, remove plastic caps on each torx head, undo torx. (torx set required)
4. Remove concrete block from top - large spanner is required - remember the sequence so you can replace later.
5. Lean over the drum and see the large drive wheel.
If you see a broken belt then remove it and re-order one from hotpoint...see http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=634224&brand=&model=wd64&part=belt.

6. to replace belt - see motor shaft at bottom of unit. Dangle new belt round shaft of motor and gently pull so it does not come off motor.(This is not easy!)
7. At the same time Ease one side of the new belt back on to drive wheel on the back of the drum.
8. Turn Drive wheel until belt is on.(This is not easy and requires alot of hand strength)
9. Replace concrete block with bolt and spanner in reverse sequence you removed it.
10. replace lid, torx and cover for torx.

REMEMBER TO UNPLUG BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING!
- If the belt is not broken in your case - it could be the brushes on the motor - I can give you info on this if required!

SOURCE: hotpoint wf250 drum wont spin

Well if you see the drum move in the wash cycle than the belt is still attached.Your door latch is the first thing to check.And the control board is the next and most likely problem.

SOURCE: WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin

sound like the contact points on the timer are probebly dirty or arched to where they are not making good contact. you can take and clean them with a piece of emery cloth if you are mechanically inclined and can take the timer apart. Also there's a set of contacts down by the motor ti check too.
Good Luck,

Lg model DLGY1202W Dryer. When I try to start a cycle, I hear a slight click in the back of the dryer and nothing happens. I've tried unplugging it for a couple of minutes and nothing changes.


there are 3 things i find on lg dryers that can cause that. one, main control board would be worse case relay on ctrl board may be stuck causing clicking noise. 2nd, you could have a broken/slipped off belt. test for that would be turning the drum by the fins inside drum without any clothes. It should have a little bit of force to turn. if it spins rather easy. you probably have a broken belt. 3rd lastly, there is a re settable thermostat inside dryer if it pops is cause the dryer not to run.

Belt
The belt may have come off or broke. If you hear the motor running but nothings moving the problem is likely the belt. This is easy to check and replace

Door Switch
This can cause the washer to not agitate or go into the spin cycle. You will need to remove the door switch to check it. You will perform an ohm reading on the bottom terminals. The reading varies from manufacturers most Frigidaires is around 1500 ohms others like the whirlpool duet is checked at the main control board with the door closed should be around zero ohms. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading.

Main Control Module / CCU
The main control unit is the circuit board located behind the console. If the door switch tests good the main control is usually the problem. Check all connections for a goood tight fit. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual to check this further. The main control is easy to replace .

Motor Control Module

The motor Control Module is located inside the cabinet down near the motor. This recieves the signals from the main control module then relays this information to the motor. Check all connections sometimes a communcation problem is just a loose connection. The motor control is easy to replace. To check this further you will need to refer to your tech sheet or service manual.

I have a indesit WIB 101 (uk) washing machine.


Remove the belt, and from the front, spin the drum by hand.
If it is noisy or rumbling or feels rough, then the main drum bearings have failed which would explain why the belt was off.
Also check the drum pulley for a brokem or cracked spoke, again this will give you the same symptons.

Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

No spin cycle


when it does it only in the spin cycle:
Either bearing or motor.
Best thing to do is: Open the back up and put it in a regular cycle. See if the back of the drum has a lot of play.
take off the belt and feel if there is a lot of play in the shaft of the drum. If not and it moves freely with no grinding sound it is your motor.
