Washing machine repair

My washing machine drum does not turn. The machine fills and emptys water and i can hear a relay clicking when the motor should spin. The drive belt is on and the brushes in the motor have lots of life left in them. Where else should i look ?

Hiya .. It is probably the bearings on the drum at fault, may have collapsed... is the drum making a noise when you turn it by hand?

Washing machine makes clicking noise after filling up and wont spin. Kepps on clicking until i force shutdown, which then drains the water away.


hi, the problem you have is the motor carbons (brushes) have worn down ( which is natural if machine is used every day ). the machine fills up with water but there is no motor action. the clicking noise you are hearing is the relay on the pcb sending a signal to the motor to turn, but with the carbons worn, there is no motor action. Easy enough to replace them. UNPLUG machine before any repairs are carried out.

Start wash program, fills with water, then drum does not turn.. Tried rinse progam, water ,does not turn.. Can hear relays clicking but nothin moving. But the time carries on counting down. It does drain...


If the motor is not spinning, you may have a burnt out motor or faulty Motor Control Board. Else, if the motor is spinning, fix the belt from the motor to the drum.

Bosh washing machine won't do any programmes


If it fills then the next phase is to agitate.
To do that the motor must drive
Can you hear a whirring sound from the machine if you get close to it if so then the belt driving driving drum may have snapped.
If not then the motor brushes may have stuck or have worn out.
Does the machine programmer advance by itself or are you turning the dial

My wife had the same problem last night.This morning when I turned the m/c on, there was a lot of noise and when I looked underneath, loads of sparking. Closer investigation shows I need new brushes and I imagine that if the drum on your machine is not turning, you do too.

However you said that you can hear the motor? That may indicate a belt problem instead. get someone to turn the machine on it's side and manually turn the drum. If the motor rotates it isn't a belt problem and someone needs to test/repair your motor.

Hope that helps a little.
