Hotpoint Aquarius 1000 WM62 motor problem?

When I start my washing machine it fills with water and all appears well but the drum doesn't turn. I've taken the top off and tracked a loud humming noise to be coming from the motor. Does this suggest it
needs replacing or could it need new brushes? Thanks for any help, cheers, NeilC

The motor is shorting, it could be faulty brushes if you are lucky. Look at the wires in the plastic connector to make sure they are not sooty from burning. I had to rewire one on my machine.

Door won't open

Usual reason for this is not emptied correctly. The filter on this model is in an awkward place so try lowering drain hose into a bowl to check if water still in.
