What u need to do is tip the washer back and look underneath to see the motor look closely to check if it has carbon brushes if it does then these will need replacing has they will be worn but if it doesnt it will have a module this is a circuit board to the right handside at the back as you look to the back from the front it will be in a plastic cover with wires coming from it this will be faulty some of these are exspensive now all this depends on how old the washer is if its an oldish 1 then it will have a module if its a newish 1 eg less than 5years old it will have carbon brushes m8

Hi there, my Indesit W133S front loader tub washing machine has stopped spinning, it made a funny metallic scratching sound mid cycle and then wouldnt spin. When I removed the washing even the empty drum...


Taking a guess is all that is possible...

The drum bearings have seized.
Something has broken and jammed the drum drive pulley.
Something has become jammed between the washtub and drum.

Your next step is to remove the top of the cabinet and examine the drive, ensure the motor still spins ok and the belt is intact, pulley not broken, etc.

If you find nothing wrong the task becomes fairly major as the cabinet will probably need dismantling in order to remove the front of the washtub for a closer inspection.

Indesit WIDL1265 - Noisy on Spin


Hello, this is a symptom of drum bearing wear, and what you need do is to check the wear to see if the inner drum moves up and down relative to the fixed outer drum. It should only moves a minutes amount. If it moves more than a millimeter or two, that means it is probably worn bearings and you will need to replace it.
Thanks

I have a indesit WIB 101 (uk) washing machine.


Remove the belt, and from the front, spin the drum by hand.
If it is noisy or rumbling or feels rough, then the main drum bearings have failed which would explain why the belt was off.
Also check the drum pulley for a brokem or cracked spoke, again this will give you the same symptons.

Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

My indesit WG1230 washing machine does not spin or move drum but water go in and out.


Hi,
With the door open, try spinning the drum, there should be some resistance along with a slight wherring sound. If it spins freely without much sound at all - you probably need a new belt.
If you can feel it driving the motor, you may need new contact brushes for the motor.
If the machine buzzes when it should rotate on program, you need a new motor Run capacitor also.
If no sound - nothing, the motor may need replacing or at least checking.

Indesit WA105 - drum is loose and fails to spin


Hi Jezzer69 It is repairable but will take about 3 -4 hours (if you know what your doing) and the parts will cost about 65% of what a new machine will cost. You need to weigh up how old the machine is and or if its "beyond economical repair" Regards
