Could be that you have a faulty motor, check the armature for signs of shorting or burning, also make sure that the brushes are contacting the armature, check the connections are o/k in the motor plug, pull on each wire individually, if still no go, and everything else is working o/k, then it look's like you will have to replace the motor.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks

How to fix, no spin on Hotpoint WDF740?


Long shot guess here but ...have you checked / replaced the carbon brushes of the electric motor ???? common problem I have had before.
If it is not the brushes then it could be segments of the motor burnt out which could be expensive.

Have WD63 WASHER/DRYER & the drum stopped turning. motor ok & drum turns easily when turned manually.


Could be the carbon brushes on the motor. They're usually quite cheap and easy to replace. In this area you can expect to see a lot of carbon dust (black). The brushes themselves should protrude from the case by around 4-6mm.

Could also be a loose connection between the power feed and the motor.
Will it pump? Some machines die completely when the pump fails.

I have a hotpoint aquarius 1100 washer dryer wd51 was making a grinding noise we turned it off and a under wire from a bra was sticking through a hole in the drum pulled it out and it is complete but now...


The bra wire bears no relation to your present problem.
Remove top cover, screws at rear, and push top cover back.
See if the belt is still on, if it is, then select final spin and see if the motor and drum go round, if it does not, then the brushes in the motor probably need replacing.
Unplug washer, and disconnect the motor. you will find the brushes at the motor plug end, depress plastic lugs, and slide brushes out, if they are less than 5mm long, then replace them

If it is the belt that has come off, you will have to remove the rear panel to refit it.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Brushes


if replacing the brushes has not fixed then its most likely the motor is duff.

yes easy to change there are 2 of them look for a single wire going to each side of your motor when u find each wire u have found were your carbon brushes are right you will need a pair of bent nose pliers place the ends either side of the plastic casing if the carbon brushes squeeze and pull the first brush should pull out take wire of now the 2 brush you wont be able to see but its directly across from the first 1 do exact same to take that 1 out now before replacing the new brushes there a small slot running down 1 side of the plastic at the end you will see a small metal bar push this up which will release the carbon now you can fit them

What exactly is your problem ? Some blackening on the circuit board doesn't mean it should be replaced. In case the board should be replaced (you can do it yourself), you should understand first what cause it to become blackening. Let us know with more details and we will do our best to support you. Good luck !!
