Question about Washing Machines
Yes, maybe you can. Does it wash OK? i.e. the drum rotates but does not spin? If so, likely to be programmer. If no rotation at all on the drum, likely to be the motor or the belt. To find out which, take top of machine off and look to see if you can see the motor pulley - if it spins when you put it on a normal wash cycle, but the drum doesn't, it's the belt and an easy cure. In general terms: Belt=easy cure. Motor=new motor not too expensive, depending on machine quality, quite often worth the price. Programmer=unless you have a top end machine like a Miele, very expensive and you are looking at a new machine. PS some machines have a switch to cut out the motor if it spins too far out of balance - these can get damaged if you had a big load in and the drum really moved a lot. Look to see if you have such a switch and check it is not damaged. It will typically be on or near one of the suspension legs.
