Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It does sound as if the motor requires replacement 'cos it's pulling more current than it would do if it was OK hence it's hot!
Now, a word or two of advice-
It might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the com, often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. However you could take a chance.
The other option is a new motor but they tend not to be cheap! I changed the motor on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(
So- the decision is with you- sorry.
Good luck,
John C

Won't start


sounds like you have a bad motor,when it heats up it stops running and when it cools down it will run again but one of these times it won't run anymore until you change out the motor.when the motor gets hot you might smell a shellac smell,this is the windings on the motor heating up.part number 8528157 and it's around 120 dollars on the sears site

I have a model WL80T65CW1 aquasmart washing machine. It stopped working and showing fault 49 on screen. I do not have a manual. Would you please tell me what fault 49 is?


In AquaSmart machines the pump over-currents and blows the water valves fuse, Motor controller board and pump needs replacing.
49. (00110001) Cold Valve or Cold Valve & Hot Valve Faulty
The Motor Control Module has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that
indicates the cold valve or both the cold and hot valve is faulty. The most likely cause is
that the valve harness has not been connected correctly or the valve(s) is open circuit.
Primary Source: Wiring.
Action: Check the valve harnesses are correctly fastened to the valves and
the motor control module or the pins are not bent backwards.
Secondary Source: Water Valves.
Action: Measure the resistance of the cold and hot valve coils.
Tertiary Source: Motor Control module.
Action: Replace the Motor Control module.

My washing machine fisher and paykel MW 511 will wash fine but when it gets to the rinse cycle it stops. The lights remain the same (no flashing or beeping) and the motor smells hot. It starts again after...


You have a restriction in your drain line or pump. Also you could have a pump going out. It will smell like a bad motor. So check for a restriction first.

STOP trying to run the washer you will burn it up!!
You need to remove the agitater and make sure nothing is tangled around the shaft. If there isn't anything tangled you will need to do surgery on your washer. You will need to remove the back access panel and remove the lines from the water pump on the back "one going in and one coming out" pull the pump off the shaft and make sure that it spins freely. Hopefully the motor isn't burned up to bad from trying to run it!! have a GREAT day!

Wierd smell from washer


If the machine will run in wash but not in rinse then I would check the motor first. If the motor is getting too hot toward the end of the wash cycle it may very well have a fault in the foward windings. When in the spin mode the motor is reversed so may continue to operate.
