WFC 2260 - Machine Fills and empties, but drum doesn't rotate
In any cycle the Machine fills, and there are a few clicks as ir cycles to the next stage in the wash, But the drum doesn't move, no grinding of straining noise, no motor noise at all. Eventually when it would normally go to the next stage it empties and does the whole rinse thing again no drum action, eventually it empties and goes to End as if the wash is done! Could it be the motor.
When the door is open I can spin the drum without any resistance. The filter is clean

You probably need to replace the brushes in the motor.
Remove rear panel, remove belt from drum, undo 2 screws securing motor, unplug lead to motor, lever motor back with a screw driver, keeping hold of it, and remove motor.
You will find the brushes located at the opposite end to the motor pulley.

Motor brushes, worse case scenario motor complete. Run the following motor test. 1. Put main dial to off 2. Press and hold start button whilst turning dial one click to left (easycare 30). 3. When display show 8.88 or two of the progress light come on, release the start button 4. Turn dial anticlockwise to 60 cotton (take the long way, NOT thru OFF or you'll have to start over) 5. Press start
6. Motor should rotate in both directions, pump runs, motor kicks up to full spin. 7. No motor action and two lights flashing on progress lights (separated by a light that's not on) indicates a motor fault. As suggested brushes or complete motor. Hope this helps
Most diswashers have a complete cycle that lasts over an hour. The machine fills with about 1.5-2 quarts of water, rinses the dishes for a few minutes, then empties the water, then fills again with new water and rinses for a few more minutes, then empties. This is to get a good bit of the looser gunk off the dishes, and to soften up any other stuff that has dried on there. Then the machine fills a third time, the soap door pops open, and it washes for a much longer time to hopefully dissolve away pretty much anything left on the dishes. Then it empties, and does a rinse the soap off cycle, and usually a final cycle that rinses again with a little bit of rinse agent to help them dry quickly.
Check the fill control switch. It has a small tube going to it.Clear the tube, and use a piece of tube to blow into the switch, it should click at about one to 2 psi, no harder than you can develop with your mouth. Make sure debris is not getting into the tube from the drum.
Hi there, this problem sounds as though the carbon brushes are needing replaced or infact just needing to be cleaned of dust or dirt. Its very common for the brushes to be covered in dust and fibres. Im not sure where the brushes will be on this model but I hope this helps you in someway.
ON THIS MACHINE WHEN IT AGGITATES MOTOR ROTATES ONE DIRECTION, WHEN IT PUMPS OUT AND SPINS IT ROTATES THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. YOUR MACHINE IS ROTATING THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN IT FILLS., INDICATING THAT THE TIMER IS SENDING VOLTAGE TO WRONG WIRES. SOLUTION , REPLACE TIMER.
PS: MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE PLUGGED IN TO MOTOR. WHILE THIS IS UNLIKELY , I HAVE SEEN THIS BE THE PROBLEM.
possibly the belt is off/broken? can you hear the motor turning when the drum is supposed to be revolving? If not supect the motor carbon brushes, or some other fault with the motor/and /or circiut, at best it may be a burned out wire to the motor
