Washing machine stopped spinning & tumbling at any cycle. Have limited knowledge on multimeter use, but door lock/switch appears to be in working order. Belt around motor in excellent condition. ...


Check the condition of brushes. Replace if necessary. Check motor rotation. Not rotating, check if it has a soft starter for motor. If there is soft starter, bypass it. Check the motor rotation. If it does not rotate, then it is quite likely that the motor is burnt.

Blows 6 amp fuse in top panel. On spin cycle runs the pump but motor wont rotate for spin. If left blows fuse again.


Remove the hoses and check the impeller of the pump for an obstruction.

Maytag atlantis wont spin cycle


this could be one of three things, 1. Rinse hold (an option to save the washing sitting crumpled when you are out) release the rinse hold button and it will spin.
2. You have a blocked drain or uneven load (if a washing machine spins with a full load of water in it it would dance around your kitchen and eventually break apart the weight is too much, it has to remove the water to a level within a set time or it will stop, or if its a uneven load it will attempet 3-4 times start a spin.
3. your motor brushes are worn (brushes last around 2-3 years depending on use) or board failure, first signs of this can be it will not spin, then it will not rotate at all try to spin it with no load (no washing) then add a couple of wet towels. if no spin it could be either of the two best way to check the brushes is to remove them and check the length they start around an inch long.
Always isolate the electrical supply when removing things from the machine.

Bosch WFL2450 Washing Machine wont spin cycle


Hi there, this problem sounds as though the carbon brushes are needing replaced or infact just needing to be cleaned of dust or dirt. Its very common for the brushes to be covered in dust and fibres. Im not sure where the brushes will be on this model but I hope this helps you in someway.

Intermitant fault


Sometimes the Brushes on the motor can cause intermitten rotation. The brushes are the electrical contacts for the motor to rotate. When they wear down or degrade (and need replacing) under spin conditions the motor may fail to turn as it may have hit a dead spot on the motors commutator.

Best course of action is to see if the Brushes need replacing. The cost of new Brushes is < £20. The labour may be vastly more if you pay someone - but it should be done in less the 0.5 hour.

Brushes usually come in pairs (Pack of two).

If your unit is hotpoint I can offer some instruction on how to fit yourself.

Regards
