Question about Creda W120VW Front Load Washer
Hi,iI have just had the same fault, and as described elsewhere, the
solution was to replace the motor brushes. I would say this took 1/2 -
3/4 hour to remove brushes and same to replace.
1.DISCONNECTED ELECTRICITY SUPPLY
2. Disconnected water
3. Removed the 1 screw from back panel, removed panel to get access to remove belt.
4. Lay washer on it's side (2 people recommended)
5. From underneath machine, unscrewed 2 bolts on the motor (back of the machine)
6. Holding the motor so it did not fall and get damaged, carefully tapped end of motor to unmount it from holding pegs (slides towards back of machine)
7. Noted how the plastic cover fixed to motor, then snipped tie wrap holding it to motor.
8. Unplugged connector and earth connector.
9. Carefully removed connector on each brush.
10. AS THE BRUSH WAS SLOWLY WITHDRAWN, checked the orientation of the bevelled edge of the brush relative to the motor so the new one was fitted correctly (the end of the brush is angled so it sits flat against the motors commutator)
11. Replaced brushes and refitted in reverse order.
