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.

Re: WD62 is not spinning even after chaning new carbon...
When u changed the carbon brushes did u move the little metal pin to free the carbon off it must be able to come out then in with ease if not do this if u did then if the carbon brushes have got too low then it will have more then likely damage your motor m8

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
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) . pete
Yeh you carbon brushes on the motor need replacing..
easy to do yourself. i have a post or there is a post on this site.
All you do is remove the top lid by unding the three screws at the back and pulling it back.
You will c the motor atached to the top of the drum. Now myself personally have a set of 90degree bent nose pliers specially for this job i dont know abbout you. You will c two white looking plugs inserted at the back end of the motor remove these and replace.
Howver on some models diffrent motors are used where you undue the carbons with a screw drive and replace.
Good luck Washdoctor..
Please rate me. the solution is adead cert. new brushes cost around £5 to £10 pounds
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
