Drum not turning



Hi,
Would request you to please do the following steps to get the drum spinning again.
Switch off power, disconnect hoses, open pump housing to completely empty machine of water.
Turn the machine upside down onto a soft surface - e.g. a blanket on the floor, and carefully cut the cable tie holding the motor cable and splashguard to the motor body; disconnect the motor connector and earth spade to facilitate easy access to the more visible brush block. The brush spades disconnect easily, then the brushes are extracted by sliding each spade terminal inwards toward the motor spindle until the connector end is released from the block, then pull the other way to release the inward end - withdraw the spring/brush assemblies gently from the carriers. The brushes are clearly on either side of the motor spindle but see how they do not fit on a diameter of the motor axle but are inserted tangentially - the curve on the brush is polarised to take this into account - you want to have the wider carbon contact surface of the two fitting options possible. Reassembly is simple but make sure you do not reconnect the mains supply if any water has been spilled into the top of the machine... leave it for a day or so to dry out You can test the motor using the spin cycle before re-installing the machine properly.

My hotpoint ultima wont spin, its as thought something is preventing it for spinning. When its switched to spin cycle it turns a little to the left, then a little to the right, but cant seem to go any...


Things that couse this are, worn motor brushes, unplug remove the top, the motor should be at the top, if so remove the wire attached to the spade of the grey cartridge then unclip using a very thin screwdriver pushed down the back of the cartridge, and slide out if there is only a small peice of brush showing they must be changed, if ok spin the drum by hand if it moves freely the the drum is ok, the last thing to check is if it moves through the wash, but its just the spin that it wont move, there is a blockage, and the preassure vessel wont allow it to spin.

I had the same problem. My husband checked the carbon brushes attached to the motor and ran the machine on spin. The brushes were sparking so he assumed they were worn and replaced them and hey presto machine works fine now. The brushes cost 23.99 and were just bought from a local shop but can be bought online cheaper. Hope this helps solve your problem. Essex

Hotpoint motor problem after renewing drum bearings!


Hi dave, Its nothing you have done! It will need the carbon brushes changed in the motor as they have got low. The arcing is caused by the brushes not touching the com properly. Just change them and it will be all good.....

Washer won't spin.


From Howtomendit: key point I missed was that you need to pull the motor apart after you have taken it out of the machine before you can get access to the screws holding the brushes in. (ie: unscrew the four bolts). Not as difficult or scary as it looked!

please read thro first.
first unplug it, pull it out so you have some work space, take off back plate, remove belt undo (should be white rectangle plastic block with wire attached), remove green+yellow wire undo bolts which hold motor to drum, gently ease out motor (please be aware of sharp edges), run screwdriver down 1 side of motor so you put it back together same way you took it apart, unscrew 4 bolts that hold motor together take top bit of dont loose spacer ring, place to 1 side, remove middle comutator the end the brushes are touching will need a proper clean wd40 maybe wipe clean with cloth so its not dull let dry, undo carbon brushes, take plate off also clean then clean what they were attached to when dry replace in reverse order gently (with new brushes) then replace back on machine plug back in and test by running spin program found at bottom of dail if i have my mod/num right let it get to full spin watch motor if it sparks an looks like blackpool illuminations motors no good will need new 1 sorry.

How do I replace the Cleaning Brush for the drum?????


why in the world are you replaceing the brush? In 25 years of copiers, i,ve never had to replce a brush. If its streaking on the copy, its the blade thats bad. only reason to replace a brush is if its broke,cause of a clog. just vacumm it out.

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
