The transmission is belt driven so carbon brushes cannot be the issue. most likely it is a slipping or loose belt remove lower rear panel and check belt tension also check condition of the belt. In order to shift into spin there is a solonoid that activates the transmission you should be able to hear it click. if it just hums it may need replacment.

Zanussi fs1455w not spinning fast under load. Without anything in the drum it spins fine??? Tried all speeds with the same result. Any ideas???


May be not pumping efficently. when the spin starts the initial rush of water floods into the drum from the clothes a build up of water under the drum causes a braking action on the drum and slow spin speed.. look for partial blockage in pump chamber hoses or under sink if a spigot connection. probably not the belt as it would throw off a loose belt. Check it anyway. if non of these check carbon brushes they may on the verge of failure.

Washer won't do anything. was washing a large comforter and the washer stopped working in the middle of a spin cycle. water did drain. now won't turn back on...no noise or anything. fairly new washer only...


If there is any voltage on the power group, try it temporarily with another device, if there is a control light on the display and it burned then read this suggestion.#

Its written by Hitachi but its on all kind of brushes made by other brands to find .
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Carbon brushes are one of the most commonly replaced power tool parts. This is because carbon brushes are wear items, meaning that through friction and use they will gradually wear away until they need replacing. Worn brushes are a common causes of intermittent motor function, reduced electric braking and reduced motor power. A worn-out brush will often be worn down near to the wire lead and can be cracked, pitted, or burned. When replacing carbon brushes, be sure to inspect your armature for burns, cracks, or other damage which can indicate larger motor problems. [ NOW COMES THE IMPORTANT THING what i suggest ]
This Brush will pop out a pin when the Brush wears to a certain length.
It is advised to keep an extra set of these brushes on hand at all times
