Question about Washing Machines
Machine wont spin. I removed the motor and cleaned the commutator and check the brushes all ok. Also meggared the motor which was fine. Put the machine on a spin cycle and water pump works but motor does not go. Little bit lost with no schematics as I am getting 110V AC on the motor
If you have been able to check the motor with an external supply and found that it was working , then perhaps the control board has to be checked. Please test the motor, if it runs freely perhaps the drive is stuck , check the spindle assembly , could be jammed or the bearings could be faulty

That sounds like a broken motor couplin, slack drive belt, or worn bearings.
A repair person can determine which is it. I cant tell from here. However,
If you do this test you can eliminate one of the above. Lift the lid of the washer, hold the rim of the inner-tub and spin it clockwise and then anti-clockwise. If it spins both ways, you have a bad bearing which needs replacing.

I had the same problem. My husband checked the carbon brushes attached to the motor and ran the machine on spin. The brushes were sparking so he assumed they were worn and replaced them and hey presto machine works fine now. The brushes cost 23.99 and were just bought from a local shop but can be bought online cheaper. Hope this helps solve your problem. Essex

you need to hold the option and extra rinse buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds...you will see the padlock symbol go and then use your machine as usual
