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

SOURCE: hoover 500m spin cycle

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

Electrolux EWF 1074 - the white plug won't come

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Had the same problem with our Bosch, cap would not even turn!
pour anticalc/limescale fluid into any gap there is around the cap. Empty the machine and you can switch it off providing the door is open! Then pour the contents of at least 2 sachets of proprietary anticalc powder/liquid into the drum direct together with a kettle full of boiling water. Leave overnight at the very least. The following day run just a spin cycle as then there will be no water diluting the mix. This mix will go through the filter and motor and is likely to help release the filter/cap. If you feel like it, do the overnight again. If nothing else it will ensure that the heater element is clean!
I had to spend a couple of hours gently turning the cap back and forth until it finally released its hold- but the filter did not remain attached to the cap by its rubber ring. More patience, anticalc fluid and all was revealed!
I now run an anticalc clean regularly............which reminds me..............!
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
