Hi Richie. Your machine (in fact any machine) won't spin if theres water inside the drum (the pressure switch makes it impossible). Sounds like you have a blockage on the waste pump. If there's a filter at the fron, get as much water as possible out the machine, get a few towels and then open the filter. If there's no filter, pull the machine out, tilt it on its back a look for the waste pump (the part that links to the waste hose). Clear any blockage.
If after you removed stuff out of the waste pump, if it still not spinning, then it will be the motor brushes. Remove one and check for wear (if its below 1cm then they need changing, they are normally 5 to 6 cm long).
Cheers

Where is imbalance switch on tricity Bendix aw1000w and how can I reset it


there is no imbalance switch on any washing machine these days. Any imbalance on loads is picked up by the Tachogenerator located on the back of the motor which sends an impulse to the speed control on the machine. Dont bother trying to find it its nothing more than a coil which is not in anyway adjustable. If you are having problems spinning clothes ensure the drum is full but not tightly packed. if you have to do a small load and it won't spin take the clothes out of the machine, separate them then put them back in and try spin again. and ensure your machine is level on the floor and doesn't rock when tumbling.

Tricity bendix BIW103W spins badly, clothes still too wet.


Hi, Your problem is very common and very easy to fix. You will first need to strip the machine down and remove the motor. Once you have done this then take off the motor carbon brushes, These are the little things in cases on the side of the motor casing. These should be at least 1" long! you will find that this is not the case and they will need replacing to resolve your problem. The parts should not cost anymore than around £20 for the pair.
Good luck any problems get beck to me............................

Manual spin


This may sound crazy. If your machine looks to be spinning out and draining fine it may be you (NO DISRESPECT INTENDED). I see this alot. Try cutting back to about a tablespoon of "HE' soap. Before doing this run some vinegar thru the wash cycle to clean out the machine.

Tricity bedix spin query


First of all make sure you have selected the correct spin speed if there is more than one setting.
Check and make sure prog 4 is mot a delicate wash prog, as it will spin at a lower speed if this is the case.
If it has a filter, locate it and remove to clean.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

My tricity bendix washing machine flashing and beeping end light


Hi, we had something similar happen just before christmas. Our machine seemed to finish a cycle and started making beeping noise with end light flashing. Then when I switched it back on to do another load it just started beeping with end light flashing no matter what cycle was selected. Engineer has been out and advised that it is a fault with the motherboard so has ordered another one. Hope this is of some help. Machine was tricity bendix aw1400w.
