    drive couple which connects the motor to the transmission check under neathin between the the motor you can usually feel if theres a break between the couple not sure which model you have but on most top loaders when you have no spin or agitate this is one of the first things you check for

Drum won't go round when loaded although will rotate by hand


Can you hear the drum motor running when you switch the machine on? You should hear it running and stopping periodically.
If the motor is running but not turning the drum then the drive belt is either broken or has become detached. It can be replaced by gaining access to the back of the machine.
If the motor is not running then it could be one of several problems - programmer mechanism not working, motor burnt out, motor brushes need replacing etc.

When the machine is switched on there is a smell of burning / hot plastic. i have removed the front cover and there is no sign of any heat damage to the controls or PCB. The wachine works fine, except for...


Have got the same problem at the moment. Removed all the covers and checked the control panel ( no damage, no smell ) The drain motor ( no damage, no smell ) and the drum motor again no obvious problems. Checked the brushes on motor and they were fine also. Have decided to let whatever it is run itself to destruction and then hopefully i can identify it.
Will post on here if i can resolve.

No drum movement during wash/spin cycle, although it fills/drains


brushes need replacing in motor. Usually cheap enough to buy and do yourself.

Indesit WG1234T washer drum not turning


hi there..by the sound of things,the brushes on the motor are worn out.easy to replace,each brush is secured by two screws at the rear of the motor,and will be black in colour,or a reddish colour.it may be easier to remove the motor to gain access.buy a cheap set from ebay,as generally speaking a repair and spares shop will ask four times the going rate.anyhow,once removed there should be at least 7mm of carbon left to make contact with the commutator(the part of the motor that turns)
hope this helps,steve.ps.the belt could have snapped or come off also....

Drum not turning


If you are certain that the motor was turning, then the only things that come to mind are that:
  1. The belt is stretched or worn-Replace as there is no adjustment.
  2. The drum is stalled, either because it has seized, or there is something stuck in the drum.
  3. The motor brushes are worn, and will not cope with load of drum, check brushes.
Try running it on fast spin without the belt on , if it spins o/k, then that would indicate the motor is o/k.
Please leave a fixya rating for my solution.
Thanks.
