Re: washing machine

I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years and this sounds like it could be the motor carbons, assuming the belt is still on, check the carbons first on the main motor, if these are fine then check the module pcb this is a board that is located normally at the bottom inside the cabinet at the side, i think that it will be the carbons, they are known for it? work with safety if i have helped please rate me

Could be a blown capacitor in the phase splitter for the motor.

The drum on WF325 hotpoint washing machine does not rotate

Sounds like your gearbox/transmission has went out. Usually cheaper to get a new washer than to replace. Sorry.
It is not the motor, if the water is draining - pump is attached to motor.
Hope this helps...

Push start and machine wont fill and draining/unlocking light sarts blinking about 2 seconds later

My machine had the exactly same problem:
1. Push Start button to wash, but Draining/Unlocking light will flash right away. The drum started to run and stopped
2. No error code shown up
3. Run Quick test: no error code
4. Run Universal Test: error code F25 (later, found nothing wrong with the CCU)
What I did:
1. Clean the bump: found coins and strings.
2. Clean the drain pipe from the pump to tub: found more coins.
3. Clean chamber of pressure switch at the tub: found nothing.
4. Clean the gap between tub and drum: found a credit card!
After the cleanings, the Draining/Unlocking light would still come back and I almost gave up. Amazingly, I ignored it and a few minutes later.... the machine started to run as normal!
It seems that CCU needs sometime to reset itself after the failure.

Washing machine wont hold water on any setting

raise the main drain hose to the top of the back control head. there may be a problem with the main hose being to low and the water is gravity siphoning out of the washer.make sure the washer is off when you lift the hose up but do not remove it from the wall,you should here water drain out once it has stopped draining restart you machine and it should fill to the proper level and quit then go into your wash cycle

My washer does not spin or move during wash cycle the moter runs but nothing is moving.

Hi, this motor has faulty windings, causing it to lock up and not rotate the drum/basket. replace this motor asap if possible.

Zanussi washing machine wont spin

check the drain hole when you start the machine if the water is coming back out , if yes that means your dump valve is bad.
