Question about Hotpoint WMA35 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Motor brushes? Machine started making funny crackling noises and then stopped spinning. Now it just has some of the lights on and wont do anything. From past experiens I guess the motor brushes are gone? looking underneath I can only see one of the brushes pointing directly downwards - do I have to take the motor off to get to the other one?

I am not familiar with your specific washer, but there are some washers that has a hole in the bottom that allow you an access to the brush. In case you don't have this access (I hope that you will have !) you should take the motor off for it. Good luck !

Hi if your beko 1000 spin 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.

Washing machine

This deffenitly could be the brushes. Wierd sound normally comes from the electric sparking between the stator and the brushes. If it are not the brushes the best bet will be the bearing.
