Question about Smeg WDI12 Front Load Washer / Dryer

Smeg WDI12 Not Turning + can't get into it!

Hi there, my Washer/Dryer is not spinning and clothes are coming out soaked. It makes a noise like it is spinning but when I watch the drum is not turning. Here's the other problem, fixing it will be difficult as it is built into the kitchen units (was put in when house was built). Worktop cannot be taken off and panel about 4 inches from floor and door (which can be unscrewed).
Does anyone have an idea why it is not spinning and what I need to do?
Also any advice on how I can repair this machine without demoliting my kitchen? I guess they need to be repaired from top or back?

My smeg wdi 12c washer dryer will not dry any clothes


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Could be that there is water still inside keeping the garments wet so sorry, try this but no promises!

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Washer/Dryer is not spinning


Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

Sometimes this can happen when the connector from the transmission to the drive of the agitator is worn and needs to be replaced.Similar to the drive shaft of a rear wheel drive v-8 car!

Could make this sound first, like a knock,knock,knock or klack, klack,klack
OR,SOMETIMES JUST NO SOUND AT ALL AND JUST NOT CONNECTED FROM THE TRANSMISSION TO DRIVE THE ROTATION OF THE TUB!
This means you need parts! and service!
How old is the washer if it is 10 years old or more I recommend being prudish about investing a lot of money in to it!
The newer models are so much more energy efficient, that they save you water,gas or electricity And detergent too!
They can pay for them selves in energy savings in a few years!


If so here is a good company that's found nation wide.
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1
