Machine does Agitate

Dear all; I have a Indesit washing machine model WG1385, Serial No. 506123246.. Once stwiched on it sounds like the drum is turning but it is not. I can hear clicks,clicks but it does not turn around, there is not spin either, apart from that everything is fine. All the programs are functioning OK. The water cold and hot goes in fine,then the pump released the water fine. I changed the belt. Could this sound to you like the electrical motor has gone? Many thanks for your patience. Many Regards. W. Lima

Open machine's rear panel and remove belt. Check if motor spins (when it should, as per cycle stage). If motor is spining - Move tub manually and check for smooth spin In case it doesn't spin smoothly - maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub and prevent tub's spining. If this is the situation, you should remove it. In case motor doesn't spin- Check with multi-meter if it get power. If it get power - The problem is with the motor. Good luck !!
