    Did you ever resolve the problem? My washer does everything except
    rotating. I inspected the pump and the belt - that's all fine.

    I thought it is teh soldering in teh control PCB. Resoldered all joints, but still no luck.

    I also used electrical contact spray and spayed on teh motor and conector. Once it worked again so I told my wife. She loaded, started and no spin.

    Back to square one. I too think, it has something to do with the lower connector at the motor itself.

    New brushes fixed the problem, and gave me a good op to clean every thing and inspect the belt and motor. I also changed the front boot while I was at it, It had some wear through on the right side! thanks for the help. this job only took me 30 min. and saved me a load of cash!

Hi if your Beko washing machine has a spin problem then you have to check the carbon brushes first.

Maytag washer mhwe300vw13 will not spin


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Coming the second aspect if the above gives no result:
Perhaps you need new carbons brushes for the motor. It is a fairly straightforward repair. Remove the top cover, screws at rear, and slide top cover off towards the rear. The motor is located at the top right right rear, you will see the drive belt. Slacken the bolt that holds the motor, and push the motor down towards the top of the drum. You will see the 2 brush holders, they will be either black or white, pull the wires off the holder terminals, and depress the plastic lug that holds the brushes in place, slide the brushes out of the motor. The length of the brush should be at least half an inch long or replace. Fit new genuine carbon brushes,
and follow instructions on packaging. Push the leads back on to the carbon terminals. tighten up motor, and make sure the belt is reasonably tight. Test on final spin before you refit top cover.
(Spares can easily be located on this very site - Fixya)
There are very gud videos on YouTube to guide you.
If helped pl click so.

Whirlpool washer model #lsr5132hq1- drum turns but agitator doesnt on second spin cycle until you give it a spin by hand. ok on first spin cycle


May be the motor carbon brushes are worn. This is usually a cheap repair 10 or 20 pounds if u can do it yourself , but disconnect from mains , take out motor , remove , replace carbon brushes, ( some motors don't have them) you can understand what I mean, my advice is estimate from local dealer but dont get conned with new motor ( I think its carbon brushes only) .

Things that couse this are, worn motor brushes, unplug remove the top, the motor should be at the top, if so remove the wire attached to the spade of the grey cartridge then unclip using a very thin screwdriver pushed down the back of the cartridge, and slide out if there is only a small peice of brush showing they must be changed, if ok spin the drum by hand if it moves freely the the drum is ok, the last thing to check is if it moves through the wash, but its just the spin that it wont move, there is a blockage, and the preassure vessel wont allow it to spin.

Hotpoint motor problem after renewing drum bearings!


Hi dave, Its nothing you have done! It will need the carbon brushes changed in the motor as they have got low. The arcing is caused by the brushes not touching the com properly. Just change them and it will be all good.....

Hotpoint aquarius 1100


yes easy to change there are 2 of them look for a single wire going to each side of your motor when u find each wire u have found were your carbon brushes are right you will need a pair of bent nose pliers place the ends either side of the plastic casing if the carbon brushes squeeze and pull the first brush should pull out take wire of now the 2 brush you wont be able to see but its directly across from the first 1 do exact same to take that 1 out now before replacing the new brushes there a small slot running down 1 side of the plastic at the end you will see a small metal bar push this up which will release the carbon now you can fit them
