Try these two things first:check the brushes on the motor you will have to remove it first they are held on with two screws on each,and also there is a drain filter behind the kick plate at the bottom of the machine if this is blocked it does sometimes cause the machine not to spin properly hope this helps

Zwp1121p Spinning but clothes still we5 through


Is the spin cycle reaching full spin speed or is it not spinning as fast as it should? If it isn't reaching full speed it could be caused by an uneven load (as this will stop some machines from spinning properly). Towels and items which get very heavy when wet can cause this.

Beach towels sopping wet after machine done spinning


The washer will not proceed into high speed spin with just two large beach towels in the basket. The washer is detecting a out of balance condition, and remains in low speed spin. Solution? Try adding more items into the basket. With only two towels, there is not enough mass to balance the washer. With more clothing or towels, there is more items for the machine to balance, and reach full speed spin.

The only other thing that could cause this, would be if the water in the tub is not completely draining in the time allowed. This washe does not have a cleanout, and checking for an obtruction in the pump is difficult. I would go with the more clothes first, then see.

have you checked the filter behind the flap on the front of the machine, this could be blocked. if the machine is full of water though you will have to manually drain it by putting the grey outlet hose into a bucket or a washing up bowl. you will also need one or two towels to place on the floor because there wil still be a bit of water left in the ipes even though the drum is empty.

hope this helps

There is a capacitor linked to your motor by wiring.. That capacitor is most likely the fault... It is normally a 400vac 12UF(J) capacitor

Intermitant fault


Sometimes the Brushes on the motor can cause intermitten rotation. The brushes are the electrical contacts for the motor to rotate. When they wear down or degrade (and need replacing) under spin conditions the motor may fail to turn as it may have hit a dead spot on the motors commutator.

Best course of action is to see if the Brushes need replacing. The cost of new Brushes is < £20. The labour may be vastly more if you pay someone - but it should be done in less the 0.5 hour.

Brushes usually come in pairs (Pack of two).

If your unit is hotpoint I can offer some instruction on how to fit yourself.

Regards

Rob, sounds like you need an agitator repair kit. Not a hard job, under the dispenser cap you have a set of ears, spring and plastic bearing. The kit is cheap, you can find it here http://www.repairclinic.com/0080.asp Catriver...post back
