Question about Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I presume that you thought the belt might be slipping? Unfortunately in this instance the indications are that the motor is malfunctioning.
Options are to change the brushes, if that appears to be a relatively easy task, or to purchase a new motor but please note my pre-typed guidance notes for belts and motors following.
'However it is false economy to just have the brushes changed although financially very attractive. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished at the same time. It depends on how old the motor is and how much wear the commutator has had'.
In other words you can take a chance!
I changed our Bosch motor (and at the same time the belt of course) a few months ago- it is nearly 20 years old- at a cost of GBP250.
