Question about Hotpoint WD62 Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

WD62 is not spinning even after chaning new carbon brushes

It seems that several people had this same problem in the forum. But, I can't see anyone found the clear answer to the problem.

I had this for just about 10 years and it's in pretty good condition and was working fine. Couple of weeks back it was starting to stop spinning. When that happened, time to time we slightly moved the program dial and that seems to have forced the spin.
Then, after few days back it has completely stopped spinning.
Friend of mine recommended changing carbon brushes. Removed the carbon brushes and found that they were worn out. Changed new brushes. But, still it's not spinning. Also, noticed that the program dial is not rotating as well.

Every else seems to work fine.
1. Power is coming on
2. Door lock light comes on
3. Water is coming in and draining out at the end.

Any help will be appreciated.

    I did release the metal pin and that released the carbon. Then I pushed the unit along the groove and that locked in.

    What's the following mean?
    // if the carbon brushes have got too low then it will have more then // likely damage your motor

    what i mean is that if the carbon brushes get so low that the washer doesnt spin and doesnt turn the drum around on any programme then what happens is that the carbon burns the motor out this can also happen when you put new carbon brushes in if you dont clean the motor spindle were the carbons touch inside the motor it may sometimes blow the motor aswell m8

My aeg lavatherm 56600 acts strangely. The timingclock seems to go too fast, and the waterpump rund continously Even when floatchamber is completely empty. Heating works seemingly perfect, and sensor brush...

It looks like that is not correct Conductivity sensor (two brushes; wiring and electronic). I'd like to know if you replaced the both carbon brush (6), which makes contact with the drum shaft is situated in the protective housing (7) of the drum shaft and carbon brush 3b.

25316337-hf2jxxovvq5cn05mugly0fcq-5-0.jpg The last alarm code memorized can be displayed even if the appliance is in normal operating mode (e.g. while the drying
programme is being performed):
- Press button start/pause and first nearest button simultaneously for at least 5 seconds: the display shows the last alarm. The alarm sequence continues to flash as long as the two buttons are held down.
The appliance continues the cycle while the alarm codes are being displayed. If the appliance is in programme selection mode, the options previously selected are stored in memory.
However, your tumble dryer is smart and if something is wrong it should be displayed by the alarm codes.

Hoover se147 washing machine, wont spin at all , it will fill and drain. Have checked pressure switch and appears okay. Have also had circuit board out and that seems okay.

Have you checked the carbon brushes within the motor, chances are they are worn. you will need to remove your motor to get to the 2 carbon brushes.these will be in a plastic casing, held in place by 2 screws. There is just 1 wire going to each brush. When brush is removed, the carbon should be at least 20mm long. If not replace with new

Whirlpool washer model #lsr5132hq1- drum turns but agitator doesnt on second spin cycle until you give it a spin by hand. ok on first spin cycle

May be the motor carbon brushes are worn. This is usually a cheap repair 10 or 20 pounds if u can do it yourself , but disconnect from mains , take out motor , remove , replace carbon brushes, ( some motors don't have them) you can understand what I mean, my advice is estimate from local dealer but dont get conned with new motor ( I think its carbon brushes only) .

My aquairius hotpoint washer dryer wd62 keeps tripping electric why

Remove top cover, and unplug motor, try it, and if it does not trip, then motor is causing prob.
If it still trips, then heater is probably causing problem.
Please rate my advice.

I think you fixed the initial problem which was the door switch. Now you need to go back to the motor brushes and check if you put them back the right way and if the wiring is not shorting somewhere.

Washer doesn't reliably spin dry clothes

more than likely your carbon brushes which are situated in your motor locatable by a single wire on each side of your motor going into a plastic casing that holds the carbon if it doesnt have carbon brushes than it will have a module which is about 4in in length and is a circuit board this will need replacing which in some cases is not cheap at all
