Your drive belt may be damaged and needs replacing

1 Answer

Does not spin

Firstly and most commonly it could be that your motor brushes have worn out, and the motor is not turning. It is a simple task to check your brushes just remove them from the motor and look at the end of the carbon if it is very black and burnt it will need replacing and your machine will spin again. On the very odd occasion if the carbon has worn very low it can short circuit the motor and blow a segment out of the armature, if this is the case a new motor is required.
Faulty Belt?
2. This ones fairly obvious, The drive belt could be broken or has come off. Best way to test for this is to turn the drum by hand and if it turns very freely with no resistance and no motor noise then the belt is at fault. If the drum is stiff to turn then you probably have a sock stuck between the drum and tub assembly, in this case you will have to call an engineer.
Blocked Filter Faulty Pump?
3. If you still have water in the drum at the end of the wash cycle then you either have a blocked filter or your drain pump has failed. Firstly check your filter (if fitted) if that is not the problem switch your machine onto spin and if the pump is at fault you will hear a faint hum, if this is the case your pump will need replacing. One other reason is if your drain hose goes to a spout under the sink check it to see if it is blocked as this will cause the same problem.
4. This one is VERY common to more modern machines that are run by electronics (most machines of 6 years or less). This problem arises when you try to spin one item on its own ie: bath mat, dressing gown ect, you will find that all the water has gone but it has not spun, this is because all modern machines use electronics to run all programs and they measure the drum speed very accurately to stop it doing an unbalanced spin. If you ever have this problem simply open the door and put a large dry bath sheet in with the load and spin it again, you should find it now spins OK.
Speed Control Module.
5. Some electronic speed control modules suffer from poor manufacture and the soldering around the relays can burn thus creating a bad contact and eventually an open circuit. If you are lucky and good with a soldering iron you can clean up the joint and resolder it to repair the module. Machines known for this fault are: Hoover Performa, Indesit machines, Ariston, and some older Whirlpool machines. Most modules are located at the lower back of the machine

Washing machine

this clicking of the timer tells you there is a fault somewhere, this could be anything, you have to check things i would do them in this order check the heater element, most common fault second the pump but you said that works then check the motor that drives the drum belt look at the motor control board for any signs of burning etc, this could indicate a motor fault you have not given much info, but with a fault like this thats all you can say, i have given you a brief starting point what and where to look, so happy hunting if i can be of further help get back to me

Machine does Agitate

Open machine's rear panel and remove belt. Check if motor spins (when it should, as per cycle stage). If motor is spining - Move tub manually and check for smooth spin In case it doesn't spin smoothly - maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub and prevent tub's spining. If this is the situation, you should remove it. In case motor doesn't spin- Check with multi-meter if it get power. If it get power - The problem is with the motor. Good luck !!
