Question about Hotpoint First Edition FEW10P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The washer works fine aparts from the drum wont turn at all.

It will cycle through the program, it will fill and empty But the drum will not turn, The drum will turn if you turn it by hand i.e. with the top off the. The belt is fine and the motor bearing is fine. So either the motor has ceased to work or there is no power to the motor unit only.. What I want to know is how do I check that electrickery is getting to the motor. What else is there to look for to establish that the motor is ok or not

Sounds like the motor has frozen. Try to work the drum loose from the bottom (empty and unplugged) it just might be jammed from a pen or similar item lodged inside (someone not emptying their pockets). Since its buzzing (its the motor TRYING to move the drum) it has to be jammed from something. Rarely it could be a bearing locked up in either the drum or the motor itself though its unlikely.

Washing machine problem

That means that there is either a problem with the belt, or with the drum bearings.

The machine should be inspected by a technician.

If you want to get repairs for your appliance you can call the number listed on the owner manual.

Motor running drum not emptying

sounds like maybe a blocked pump.Probably got a coin or sock or some lint in the pump.Has your machine got a filter ? What happens when you position the program switch on a spin section and turn it on ? does it pump out the water ?
