The brushes are located inside the motor. Remove rear panel of washer, remove drive belt, from motor and drum, unplug the motor, undo screws that secure motor, and remove motor.
At the opposite end to the motor pulley, you will find the brushes located, undo 2 screws that secure the brushes, remove and replace brushes.
I would also check the pump filter, which should be located behind a removable panel at bottom of washer, unscrew anti-clockwise, remove and clean.

Indesit omega 1100 won't spin or rotate with clothes in


Sounds like the brushes in the motor need replacing, remove the motor, and check brushes, if they are less than 2-3 millimeters long, then they need replacing, not too expensive.

Drum does a small turn then stops but wont empty -wont wash either beko 1000 rpm


Hi if your beko 1000 spin washing machine wont drain or has a spin problem then you have to check the carbon brushes first.

Also check all waste pipes are clear and inspect the pump I have included this video below.

At our website I am doing self diagnostic videos on these beko's as we speak so all tutorials will be in this link below

Washing machine wont spin


It is unlikely to be the motor faulty, if it will wash but not spin, check the pump filter first to be on the safe side, if that does not solve the prob, then remove motor and check carbon brushes in motor, as this can often be the cause of the prob.
Also check the water level switch pressure chamber for a possible partial blockage, as this can give the same sympyoms.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

Washing machine wont spin


Your machine may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your machine is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your machine. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your machine in.

Indesit washer dryer 'omega 1200' WDG1295W won't drain!


Sounds like the pump is possibly faulty, or there is a blockage
There should be a removable plastic cover at the bottom front of the m/c, behind this you will see a round plastic cover.
This is the pump filter, unscreit and unblock it if it is full of ****!!!
Hopefully this should solve your problem.
Please leave feedback.

Continually spinning


indesits dont have carbon brushes they have a module which controls everything to your tomer if this is faulty or your timer then its not worth doing too much in money to replace get a hoover or candy same machine just ones the uk model and the other is the us model dont go for hotpoint though because indesit own hotpoint now and there changing the carbon brushes to modules which is a big mistake alot dearer to replace then the carbon brushes but maybe thats why there doing so customers have to buy another washer check the price by going to indesit customer support web site but i always keep customers away from indesit due to that module some hotpoints are still the carbons but some arent cheaper to buy a slight damaged from a washer repay shop they usually have damaged at a fraction of the price save at least £125 per washer or buy a repossed one may off been used at the most 10 times nothing wrong with them and you will save £200 plus m8
