Bosch WFR2867UK Washing Machine no drum motion.

My machine drum does not turn. The drive belt is fine and taught but there is no motion at all. How can I assess whether it is the motor, can I change the brushes or might it be an electricla fault?

F18 is a drainage fault.
The appliance has a set time to drain if it doesn't drain within that time F18 appears in display

Sounds like the motor brushes need replacing, you will have to remove the motor to do this.
Hope this helps.
Please leave feedback.

At the rear end of motor away from pulley you will see the brushes and the armature.

SOURCE: drum not working on bosch washing machine

I would say that the brushes want replacing in the motor, access to the motor is by removing the rear panel, remove the belt, and undo screws securing motor, remove motor, brushes are located at rear end of motor.
Please rate my solution.

My Defy DAW 365 washing machine goes through the whole washing cycle but it just won't spin. It does drain between the washing cycles.

If the poly-vee drive belt in your washing machine has snapped, the motor will no longer be able to turn the drum. The drive belt is an important component of any washing machine as it drives the motion of the unit where the clothes are washed and spun. If your washing machine is making a loud noise or no longer spins, then the belt is probably worn or damaged.

Indesit 1600 WIXE167 drum will not spin fast just turning slow

Sounds like the pulley that the drum belt rides on has loosened. You need to open up machine, find drum belt pulley, pull pulley taught, and tighten screws on pulley. Usually very easy to access that pully once covers are off

My front loader fills with water, pumps and drains fine but the drum never moves or spins . Already cleaned pump, Checked belt and motor, belt is good and motor and drum spin freely.

Remove the back panel of the machine and operate it to check that the drive belts are being engaged to drive the drum. Observe the operation from a safe distance when you have the back off as there are live terminals within reach and you could be severely shocked if you come into contact with any one of them. Unplug the machine again before checking anything withing the workings.

My zanussi washer dryer wjs 1397 w drum is not turning

It is most likely that the drive belt is broken and needs repalcing, If you remove the rear panel it will be obvious if it has broken *** there will be a lrge flywheel attached to the drum and no drive belt going to the motor, near the bottom of the machine. These are easy to obtain from any domestic appliance spares store or mail order. They are also very easy to fit.If the drive belt is in place and is reasonably tight (taught) then you may have an issue with the motor. clutch or brake.

Bosch Washing machine will not spin

Are you able to see the belt? Maybe it broke. If the drum is not spinning than sometime broke that would make the drum spin. If you machine is a direct drive then there is a problem with the drive shaft.

Bosh washing machine won't do any programmes

If it fills then the next phase is to agitate.
To do that the motor must drive
Can you hear a whirring sound from the machine if you get close to it if so then the belt driving driving drum may have snapped.
If not then the motor brushes may have stuck or have worn out.
Does the machine programmer advance by itself or are you turning the dial

Drive belt and noises.

your drum shaft is broken this is making the pulley wobble causing the belt to come off and it will also explain the noise. This is a very expensive job sometimes requiring the complete tub to be changed might be time for a new machine
