Why won't the drum spin on my washing machine and can I fix it myself


Very likely the brushes are worn, these are located either side of the motor. if you are able to take the motor off the machine but don't know where the brushes are, take the motor to your local repairer who will probably change the brushes for you at a small fee plus brushes. if you are able to identify the brushes and can take them off, the carbon inside the brush holder should be no less than half and inch long. If its less they are probably worn out. get new ones and replace. be careful the carbon brush is very brittle and will break easily. I can't be more specific on changing the brushes as each machine is different.

Plug off the power cord from the wall mains. I give you several alternatives, sort out thru the easiest: Note your brand and model. Check on YouTube for change of motor brushes. Then disconnect your motor and check your brushes; follow noting how you dis-assemble so you can re-assemble easier. If your brushes are less than half an inch long get new brushes (thru this very site Fixya) and refit; actually this is quite easy. The spin has a lot to do with worn motor brushes. Manufactures want you to dump machines and buy; it helps them all. Not you - you shell out bucks.
If you have already cleaned out your filter, which is usually just under the tub (be prepared for a lot of water; and disconnect from the wall power socket), your washer still may not spin. So look into next para below. The tech sheet is usually taped to the body of the washer inside somewhere.

Check the motor housing for an overload button, usually on the back and coloured black or red. Give it a push and if it clicks then the motor might have just been overloaded and shut itself off.
There is a big connector located at the motor - giving power to the motor (located under the tub) to the right side, could be loose. Disconnect the connector and refit to make sure it is tight. Before refitting the back, etc, try the spin alone; if it works you are done.

Front load washer not spinning out


You may have damaged the motor brushes, if the motor is too strained it can burn out the brushes, In some cases it can also damage the machine electronics.

Clicking sound on Washer Spin Cycle


You are quite correct in thinking that it is the motor brushes that are worn.
You need to remove the motor and replace the brushes.
This will solve your problem.
Good luck.
