Re: drum not turning


If you look at the motor which of course is on the top right of the drum. you will see either white or black palstic parts inserted eiterh side and a wire connected to them
These are the brush holders for the carbon brushes.. These have worn out and need replacing easily done just get yourselfthe parts and remove the old one and replace with the new ones....

Washing machine drum seems to be jammed. Filter is clear. Drive belt seems to be intact OK and intact. Any suggestions?

sounds like something jammed between the inner and outer drum.
sometimes people get curtain hooks jammed in there. Obviously turn off the power before you start dismantling it. Sometimes you can get access via the drain plug opening with a long screwdriver or something.

Changing dryer belt for lse7804ade washer dryer stacker

If the washing machine / tumble dryer / spin dryer seems to be making the right sort of noises, but the drum is not turning, unplug it, take the rear cover off and check to see if the drive belt is still intact and on the pulleys.

Drum on my wma62 won't turn


The main drum bearigs have failed, you have to disconnect everything you can to enable you have to
remove the whole drum and container through the top of the m/c.
It is quite an involved repair, and could prove to be expensive. more so if the drum shaft is worn.
Good luck.
if you need any further info, let me know

My Hotpoint Aquarius WF210 washing machine drum is not rotating

I think the belt has come off or has been damaged.

To open the machine slide out the machine. On the back panel lower 1/3 you will see a plastic panel remove the screws and the panel will come away. Inside you will see the belt. I suspect you will need to reattach the belt of remove it and buy a replacement.
