Question about Asko W6441 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Drum does not spin - doesn't wash either.

Motor not seized - turns freely. No burnt smells (I opened back). All sounds like works fine - when it comes to motor turning, just makes a noise as if the electricity is not being supplied in correct sequence to make motor turn - there is a slight buzzing noise at the motor. All switch noises, pre-wash noises etc. normal. I think it may the the controller unit at the right hand side floor (looking in from mback with cover rempoved). Anyone know?

Maytag legacy series washer


The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

IF it sits and you can turn it later, the only thing that would cause that is something heating up and becoming seized. When it cools off it frees itself. I would check the bearings on the drum.

MOTOR SMELLS OF BURNT MOTOR WINDINGS. iS IT NORMAL


No, the pump works while spinning. The burnt smell is probably the belt, especially if your wife saw smoke. Did she put a big load in it at the time?

The belt will slip until the tub catches up with the motor. If there is a heavy load, it can burn the belt up. I would replace it. Make sure the idler pulley on the motor moves freely also.

WHDSR209D Washer


if you have a rubber smell that means that the belt is burning through. Several problems can be the case.
1 bearing of the drum ( check if it turns freely if so the bearing is ok)\
2 the belt is worn and need to be replaced.
3 carbon brushes in motor are worn
4 bearing in motor is gone

open the backside of the machine and check belt.
think that is your problem
