Question about Washing Machines
If the motor buzzes, makes little movements but does not have the power to spin, then you need to replace the run capacitor for the motor. It's a big cylindrical one you can't miss.
No real test for them, just replace.
This is usually the fault - worn brushes, stuck brushes or duff capacitor.
(Mine's on it's way out too on an aquarius WD61, but like the plumbers tap - I'll wait a bit before doing it lol! )
