GE washer wont agitate or spin ?

This could be because the carbon brushes in your motor are worn down. One will need to check the motor to be sure.

The carbon brushes apply electricity to the motor via a split ring comutator.
Over a while the carbon dust can create a short circuit. The motor needs to be looked at and cleaned. Possibly may need to replace the brushes.

Take care!

My hotpint machine will fill with water but the drum will not turn at all

When the drum is supposed to turn do you hear the motor running? if you do all you need to do is put a new belt on. if you do not hear it running it could be the carbon brushes which are cheap to replace. to replace carbon brushes buy them from hotpoint make sure for your model then open the cover at the bottom back of machine with screw driver. when panel open you should see motor. on the motor there should be white clips on each side unclip this and you have got one of the carbon brushes replace them as the way they came before you tock them out put cover back on and test it on a spin cycle. make sure machine plug is unplugged when you open the machine.
if the carbon brushes when you take them out are long they are ok if they are short you will need to replace them. if you put new carbon brushes in and still won't work then it is control panel which needs replacing witch will cost a lot. hope this helped.

My washing machine is not spinning what could be the problem please

You dont need to do all that, to get to the brushes lie the machine on its right hand side. you can then get to the brushes through the bottom without having to remove anything. Just make sure its unplugged from the mains

Need to replace carbon brushes on Indesit Omega 1200

The brushes are located inside the motor. Remove rear panel of washer, remove drive belt, from motor and drum, unplug the motor, undo screws that secure motor, and remove motor.
At the opposite end to the motor pulley, you will find the brushes located, undo 2 screws that secure the brushes, remove and replace brushes.
I would also check the pump filter, which should be located behind a removable panel at bottom of washer, unscrew anti-clockwise, remove and clean.

hi Many universal motor malfunctions are caused by wearing down of the carbon brushes, the soft blocks of carbon that complete the electrical contact to the motor's commutator. When these brushes become worn, the motor will spark, and electrical contact may be incomplete.try this
Step 1: To sight-check the carbon brushes, remove the screws that hold the brushes and brush springs into the brush holders at the sides of the commutator. The screws will pop out of the screw holes; turn the motor over to tap out the brushes. The ends of the brushes should be curved to fit the commutator; if they're worn down, new brushes are needed.
Step 2: To check carbon brushes with a continuity tester, remove the motor lead wires from the circuit. Tag the wires as you disconnect them so that you'll be able to reconnect them properly. Hook the tester clip to one motor lead and touch the probe to the other lead; the tester should light or buzz. Slowly rotate the motor shaft, keeping the tester in position. If the tester doesn't light or buzz, or if it flickers or stutters when you turn the motor shaft, the brushes should be replaced. If the springs behind the brushes are damaged, they should be replaced as well.

Step 3: Replace worn carbon brushes and damaged springs with new ones made specifically for the motor. The model information (number and make) is stamped on a metal plate fastened to the motor, or embossed on the metal housing of the motor. If you can't find the model information, take the worn brushes and springs with you to an appliance-parts store to make sure you get the right kind. Insert the new springs and brushes in the brush holders, replace the brush assemblies, and secure the new brushes with the mounting screws that held the old brushes.

brushes are on the motor at the opposite end to the pulley. job can be done with motor in situ, but you will find it easier to take motor out.
however, how do you know they need replacing as you obviously have not tested for continuity thro brushes to commutator?

the first thing i would check is the motor brushes, as this can be a sign that they are worn down and in need of replacing. the easiest way to check is :-

1, remove the plug from the mains
2, tilt the machine back, making sure it wont fall on top of you.
3, looking under the machine the motor will be directly in front of you and the brushes will be on either side of it.
4, you will need a 5.5mm socket and a small ratchet to remove the screws.( you will only need to remove one brush as they wear evenly, if they are worn then BOTH will have to be replaced)
5, the brushes will just pull away from the motor, anything less than 10mm of carbon i would replace.

on the brushes you will notice two small lugs, these are to ensure the brushes are correctly lined up, make sure when refitting that these are locked into their correct holes on the motor.

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj
