I followed previous on-line advice to to other people with similar problems, and I have replaced the brushes and a blown capacitor- but still not getting any joy from the motor. After the machine fills with water, at the point where the drum should start agitating, the machine progressively draws more power (up to about 50A) for a couple of seconds. This puts tension on the belt, like it's trying to turn the drum, but it doesn't start the motor. Then it stops. I can spin the drum and the motor quite easily by hand- it doesn't feel seized. Before this problem occured, I had probably overloaded the machine with too much weight- not sure if this caused the problem, or if it had no bearing on what has happened. I am running the machine off a photovoltaic array and a top quality sine-wave inverter with plenty of capacity: before this fault the machine was running fine off the inverter.
Not a solution, I have had the same problem due to family members overloading the machine, in fact I have it now which is why I am on here. Previously I fixed it by cleaning the deposit left on the rotor caused by the brushes. It worked before but not this time maybe the brushes are now too worn. This is my second set of brushes I replaced a set after about 10 years of use. From memory there is not a huge difference between a completely new motor and a set of brushes so I may go that way now as the machins is around 15 years old

Potentially so, however I would get the TV fully checked over by a professional if it has been subject to a surge. If a component further down the line caused the initial surge replacing the blown cap will only result in another bang as soon as you plug it in.
I followed stiv0's advice back in May 2009 with great success, however, the problem resurfaced in 7 months, which made me wonder what was causing the capacitor blowout to begin with. After trying different capacitors I came to the conclusion that the capacitors are not being blown out by high voltage; instead they are being blown out over time by HIGH TEMPERAURE. The solution was to permanently remove the metal back panel on the TV leaving only the plastic cover so the #$% TV would not overheat. I have not had to replace the capacitors since then. Hope this helps.<br />
You don't mention if the drum spins if you choose the spin program, if it doesn't it could be the brushes on the motor. This would be a cheaper option to try first rather than a board. sometimes you can clean the com or tap the brush carriers gently and get the motor to spin on an empty or small load.
If you're confident, with the power offer and machine isolated you can check the resistance across both the brushes and slowly rotate the motor as a test. hope this helps
Check all the parts on the board that have the flashing light and those boards beside it.Look carefully,searches for those parts call capacitors,they have very common problems that have leakages of gases.Replaced these bulges up on tops,puff on tops capacitors, will cure ur tv problems.Or replaced the board that have the flashing light.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a refurbish of that board for the replacement.
read the side of the detergent box it normally says how much, and your washer is probably not opening because it has lid lock to open it you need to pause the cycle and wait a few minutes and it will release the lock also if the washeer is spinning or agitating the lid will automatically lock to open do as described above
Your washer unit is needing a new timer and replacement is needed if the part is available. This will require some electrical experience to replace the timer unit or go to your local Sears repair and they will come out and repair your unit for a fee.
2 things to check for. Obstruction in the drain pump or faulty drain pump, brushes in the motor worn out. The easiest way to determine the pump issue is answer this question. Does it drain ? Next, turn the timer to the drain/spin cycle, obviously it should drain & spin and advance to "off". The next thing with these 10505 asko is to see if the drum rotates in both directions in the wash/agitate portion of the cycle. You can just select the short wash for this (I forget if it's #4 or #5) If not, it's worn brushes. However, you'll have to make sure the armature isn't damaged before simply installimg new brushes. We can cross that bridge when we get there. Let me know.
Hope that helps, though those are just the most common problems there could be others.
