Beko wma641w wont spin?

Hi if your beko wma641w washing machine wont drain or has a spin problem then you have to check the carbon brushes first.

Also check all waste pipes are clear and inspect the pump I have included this video below.

At our website I am doing self diagnostic videos on these beko's as we speak so all tutorials will be in this link below
How to replace Beko Washing Machine Motor Carbon Brushes
you might find this test video helpful but only do it if you have checked the motor

I have just replaced the brushes on my washing machine but no the drum isnts spinning when a cycle is put on.

You havn't given any information on the brand or a model or why you changed brushes or anything so you could have 1 of about a million different machines out there..Il take a shot anyway.You may have left off wires going to brushes or forgotten to plug a wireing harness in. or my favourite one, you put the brushes in but forgot to release them so they can spring out onto the motor.some brushes are held back inside there caseing to make it easy to install without them springing out.once there in you must release the carbon brush so it can make contact with motor armature.

Water comes in but will not begin to wash

hi there......this problem is usually related to badly worn brushes in the motor...a quick way to check this is.....(1) remove the machine from its position...bringing it foward enough to tilt it back sufficiently allowing you access to the botom of the machine...(2) insect the motor for signs of black carbon dust...indicating brush ware....gently tap the motor with a small hammer...or suitable object....stand the machine uright machine....if all is ok machine will run indicating a set of replacement carbon brushes are required....failure to run indicates brushes very badly worn and possibility of damaged motor...remove the rear panel of the machine...remove the belt...remove the motor for inspection..of armature and brushes...any burn or discolouring marks on the copper brush track...indicates a failed motor..which will require replacing....

Drum not turning

Would request you to please do the following steps to get the drum spinning again.
Switch off power, disconnect hoses, open pump housing to completely empty machine of water.
Turn the machine upside down onto a soft surface - e.g. a blanket on the floor, and carefully cut the cable tie holding the motor cable and splashguard to the motor body; disconnect the motor connector and earth spade to facilitate easy access to the more visible brush block. The brush spades disconnect easily, then the brushes are extracted by sliding each spade terminal inwards toward the motor spindle until the connector end is released from the block, then pull the other way to release the inward end - withdraw the spring/brush assemblies gently from the carriers. The brushes are clearly on either side of the motor spindle but see how they do not fit on a diameter of the motor axle but are inserted tangentially - the curve on the brush is polarised to take this into account - you want to have the wider carbon contact surface of the two fitting options possible. Reassembly is simple but make sure you do not reconnect the mains supply if any water has been spilled into the top of the machine... leave it for a day or so to dry out You can test the motor using the spin cycle before re-installing the machine properly.

Thank You for using

Hotpoint wma22 fills with water but won't wash or spin

Suspect motor brushes need replacing.
Simple task accessed by removing the top of the washer and releasing the clips holding the brushes into the motor - clip on back of brush - to remove the brush assembly.
Replace complete brush assembly.

Will not empty the water out, water pump works-pipes are clean and motor brushes are new. When the dial is constanly turned eventually it empties

That's odd.
When you say the pump works, I assume you mean you can see it turning?
When you say the pipes are clean, I assume you mean the washing machine's pipes.
Motor brushes? Well, if you can see the pump turning, maybe that's irrelevant.
I'm stumped. Are you sure the pump is turning? Is the impeller connected to the drive shaft? Is the pump belt driven?
Lastly, are you sure your sewage system takes enough water?
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

I think you fixed the initial problem which was the door switch. Now you need to go back to the motor brushes and check if you put them back the right way and if the wiring is not shorting somewhere.

Hotpoint aquarius 1100

yes easy to change there are 2 of them look for a single wire going to each side of your motor when u find each wire u have found were your carbon brushes are right you will need a pair of bent nose pliers place the ends either side of the plastic casing if the carbon brushes squeeze and pull the first brush should pull out take wire of now the 2 brush you wont be able to see but its directly across from the first 1 do exact same to take that 1 out now before replacing the new brushes there a small slot running down 1 side of the plastic at the end you will see a small metal bar push this up which will release the carbon now you can fit them
