SOURCE: defy automaid won't spin

Put the machine on its side and check the wires to the pump. i found one of the wires broke off the lug on the pump side. Could be from all the vibration from the drum. The machine will only spin if the drainage is working.

Good luck.

SOURCE: How do remove the bearing behind the drum on Defy

Try Youtube below. This video really helped me when I replaced mine. Basically the entire machine has to come apart. If you are lucky, its just the bearings and seal. I replaced my bearings and seal for under $30. The bearings are likely Chinese in origin, mine were on my Kenmore, I replaced with more Chinese, you can buy SKF which are more money but likely wont last any longer, basically submerged in water a lot. The bearings will be able to be knocked out of the plastic drum with a little effort once you completely dismantle the plastic drum which has about 20 bolts or so. Now remember, the bearings only seat in one way, so dont beat on the bearings too much with a hammer and screw driver, they should come out without too much effort. They press in place, so save the old bearing and lay it on top of the new one to tap it in place. It depends on which model you have. It is likely a Frigidaire, look at the drum when it is exposed, it may be stamped. Anyway, it does not matter, if it is the bearings, they will need changing, and the rubber seal that goes over the shaft too. The seal may not look too worn, but it is, and the water has come in to where the bearings sit, so you can guess at what happens after awhile. Also, if you are not so lucky, the aluminun tribar housing holding the stainless drum onto the shaft will be cracked, if that is the case, you may want to look at another machine as parts may be too expensive. Just remember, the bearings will be standard type, and will be stamped into the race for identification. Google the bearings numbers and you will find them. Find a local supplier of bearings and they will find them for you, and the seal. It takes about 3 hours to dismantle, going slow, and a little less back together If you are a handy person, you can do it but on a scale of 1 to 10 it is about a 8 for difficulty. The hardest part for me was getting the darn aluminum belt pulley off the back of the drum shaft, what a nightmare, it was siezed, I had to use my propane torch being careful not to overheat the plastic drum.

Why would my Defy 600 Automaid drum stop spinning?

The pressure sensor might be faulty. Something is telling the control that it is too full of water so the pump starts to empty it to avoid flooding. This is usually the water level or pressure switch.

See manual for your unit at this site.

My DEFY Automaid 600 does not heat the water

It is possible that the thermostat may be causing a problem if it is faulty. It might be sending wrong signal to controller confusing it to think water temperature is already reached and shut off the heater.
The thermostat may look like this part.
