Hoover carpet cleaner brushes wont spin

First i would be checking for a mechanical restriction stopping the brushes from spinning like hair or similar wrapped around the brushes and jamming them, if all is clear it could be a belt broken or slipping, a stripped gear or an electrical fault, depends on what type of drive system the brushes on your particular vacuume cleaner uses. Hope this is helpful.

A ge top load washer first began by making a buzzing noise instead of spinning. Now it doesn't spin as fast as before or just wont spin. Jeans wrapped around the agitator shouldn't damage the spin?

the agitator spins with the tub so clothes wrapped around the agitator will have no effect on the spin other than a balance problem
The hum and failure to start spinning may be attributed to a failed (failing ) start run capacitor or program board not moving on properly
As the start /run capacitor is for the motor and if it start the wash cycle ok but after that cycle ( around 30-40 minutes) it may be too hot to restart the motor for the spin
I suggest that a technician be called in to get a proper diagnosis and a quote

Hey, I have a Whirlpool Hotpoint electric dryer that is broken. The drum will not spin. I can hear the motor engage like its trying to spin. It will do this about three times (start/stop cycle) then...

remove belt from motor so there is no drag on motor or pulley,then spin motor shaft and pulley by hand,it should spin freely and coast to a stop,if it is hard to spin,the bearings are dried out and normally its new motor time,you can try removing motor and soaking bearings in a solvent and re-oiling,but that usually doesn't do it

Very noisy after styrofoam bag was sucked up by accident. Motor itself is extremely noisy.

you could have damaged the brush assembly or there could be something else wrapped around it take it apart and clean the brush and see if that wont stop the noise

Shakes violently in the spin cycle

the reason it shakes violently is because
1)Most noisesfrom a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loudthumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have becomeunbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-startit. Repeat these steps if necessary.

or else the other reason may be

2) If your washer doesn't spin or agitate on either the delicate or regular cycle, check these:

Selector switch
Clutch assembly
Drive motor
Selector switch Ifyour washer has a selector switch on the control panel, make sure thebutton for your selection is pressed all the way in, or set properly.

Clutch assembly ManyGE®/Hotpoint® washers use a clutch and an automatic shift lever. Thisassembly is quite complicated. If there's a problem with it, youprobably should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor manywashing machines have multiple-speed drive motors. Though it'suncommon, the drive motor may work fine on one speed but not onanother. If the drive motor has failed on one speed, you need toreplace the entire motor.

On something like this you will need to
remove the washer wrap toinspect the suspension springs & base assembly. Be sure the shippingpins have been removed. The tub should float freely.

I think my solution would have helped you...rate for me if it is been useful.....thank you for using fixya....

New Roomba 560 beep twice, ask to clean brushes, but no dirt

your roomba is thinking that you need to clean the brushes. if too much load it put on your brush motor--the unit will think that something is wrapped around the brush and slowing down the motor. if you have cleaned your brush and are sure that is not the problem; you need to look for anything else that could be slowing down the brush/motor. If this is inconclusive you need to put your roomba into diagnostic mode by following the procedures in the link below

No power

It sounds like you have something wrapped around the spool, (where the string is), that is keeping it from spinning.
If that's not the problem, then it is the carburetor. It will need to be cleaned or it will need a new carb. kit. How old is it?
Let me know if you need cleaning tips.

If you have removed the drive belt from the rear pulley and the inner spin basket does not spin freely, you either have a drum bearing seized up on you, or something binding between the spin basket (stainless steel tub) and the outer tub shell. First, you need to reach inside the wash tub with the washer empty. Place the palm of your hand at the 12 o'clock position and push straight up. There shouldn't be any play in the spin basket. If you can feel the basket wobble up and down, you have either a bearing problem, or a spin basket support (spider arm) broken on the back of the spin basket. If there is no play at all, you probably have something caught. Small articles of clothing can sometimes get pulled between the tubs and usually ends up around the support shaft in the rear. This will obstruct the basket from spinning freely and could eventually cause damage to the drive motor, spin basket and/or tub bearings. You can use the instructions for replacing a rear tub bearing that I have posted under my Tip and Tricks for instructions on how to disassemble and inspect the tub. The bearing may not be bad, but you still need to check to see if anything is binding the spin basket against the tub shell and inspect the spin basket supports. Unfortunately, you have to disassemble the washer to be able to inspect any of these items I mention. I hope this helps you.
