Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This sounds very much like the belt is slipping or the motor is malfunctioning.
Belt first.
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
If it turns out to be the motor, 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. New motors are not cheap, though. It's your choice!

Good luck,
John C

Drum not going round


Hi Friend,
welcome to fixya....
may be the drum belt is the fault, Here are some possible causes of a washing machine belt coming off :-


1.The drum pulley is loose

2.The drum bearings have gone (collapsed) causing the drum pulley to wobble
3.The drive belt was to slack
4.A motor fixing bolt or bracket securing the motor to the tub has broken or come loose
5.Water has got onto the belt causing slippage
6.An obstruction or item of clothing temporarily jammed the drum causing the belt to spin off ,,,,,,,,,,,,

first check whether it is hard to turn the drum if not then check the above situations,,,ok


if you think that i helped you please rate it\\\\\\\\

The machine wheel inside wont go round


I suggest that you remove the motor, and check the brushes in the motor.
If there is less than 3 or 4mm left, then replace them.

I have a hotpoint aquarius 1100 washer dryer wd51 was making a grinding noise we turned it off and a under wire from a bra was sticking through a hole in the drum pulled it out and it is complete but now...


The bra wire bears no relation to your present problem.
Remove top cover, screws at rear, and push top cover back.
See if the belt is still on, if it is, then select final spin and see if the motor and drum go round, if it does not, then the brushes in the motor probably need replacing.
Unplug washer, and disconnect the motor. you will find the brushes at the motor plug end, depress plastic lugs, and slide brushes out, if they are less than 5mm long, then replace them

If it is the belt that has come off, you will have to remove the rear panel to refit it.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II drum does not spin.


Depending on your washing machine model, the drum and motor are connected by 2 plastice yellow circular pieces, with a black rubber washer in the middle with holes where the pegs or rods go into. The 2 plastic circular pieces have 3 pegs or rods if you will, that connect to the black rubber washer via 3 holes. Sometimes, one or both of the 2 plastic circular piece pegs get broken off or the rubber washer cracks and breaks apart, so that the motor will not turn the drum. If thats the case, you can purchase the 2 circular pieces and black washer piece as a set.

Washing machine problem


That means that there is either a problem with the belt, or with the drum bearings.

The machine should be inspected by a technician.

If you want to get repairs for your appliance you can call the number listed on the owner manual.

Hotpiont washing machine


first check if belt from motor to drum is on, then check to see if motor is running. If not, there maybe a fuse link or fuse that needs replacement. The last time you used did you smell burning, if so could be your motor is gone.
